Give Thanks

I am so thankful for the wonderful life I have been blessed with. It's been an awesome year and now more than ever, I'm reminded of just how great life is!

1 glorious and faithful Savior (who continues to bless us beyond measure) 1 wonderful, handsome, devoted father and husband, 2 beautiful, fun little girls and the world's best dog. How much more could a girl ask for? Oh, and I'm pretty sure we have the greatest friends and family!!!

We give thanks today and everyday after and are so happy you all are in our lives...those here and those far away. Blessings...

The girls love to bake, so in the spirit of the holiday we baked pumpkin bread and delivered it to our awesome friends. We are so grateful for the many wonderful friends we have.
We Love You All!!!!

Bailey received 2 awards today at school for attendance and excellent academics. It was so weird to be one of THOSE moms with my camera, my other little one and a huge smile across my face displaying how proud I was! Times are flying by and we are getting older but they days keep getting better!

My mom and I made a road trip to Santa Maria last weekend to visit with family. My grandmother's sisters were visiting from Texas and it was so nice to see them. My aunt Laura is 93! Couldn't believe how great she looks. It seems like no time has passed since the last time we saw everyone. Missing from some of the photos were my dad's other sister, Aunt Shirley. She was a blast to hang out with for the rest of the day.
I love my aunties so much. It was a blast!!!

Baby to Big Girl

It was time. We have found Grace starting to climb in bed at night with us.

Could it be because she had no blankets that fit her bed properly? Or maybe it was because she had to lay diagonal to sleep. Or possibly because she is now 2.5 years old and thinks she is a big girl. Well, after a few sleepless nights for Troy and I, we thought she was a big girl too. So here is a new bedroom for Grace. She thinks it's neat. And...she's sleeping!

Of course I will post pictures once it is complete. So keep checking. I'm sure you're on pins and needles...

Special thanks to our moms who helped make Grace warm and cozy again.

Party Time

Yesterday was Molly's birthday. She's 2. Today is my sister-in-law's birthday. She's older than 2. Tomorrow is my other sister-in-law's birthday. She's between 2 and to old to say
your age. So here's to you all. Happy Birthday!

Photos a la Evelyn

Evelyn took some really great photos at the party. I wanted to give her a shout out and thanks for her time. So here it is...more photos for your enjoyment.

Does it seem like we overdid Halloween this year or what? Well, for the first time in 25 years it wasn't my least favorite holiday. Not a tear was shed, not a sad note to be sung and being with family (especially my momma) and friends really does wonder for the soul. Not to mention, the kids had a blast too!
