She's almost there.....

If I had to guess, I would bet we are within two weeks of little Miss crawling. She is pretty darn close!! We set her on her bottom and as soon as she gets bored playing, she is on her stomach or rocking back and forth. We look down and she looks like this...



She has also taken more of an interest in the dogs lately. She likes to try and grab their feet, or their face. Their tail is the most fun. Bella's tail was on the ground and the end was wagging back and forth and Avery tries to grab it. In the picture below, it looks like she crawled over to Bella, but I think she scooted backwards and ended up there. Bella just lays there and lets her do what she will do.

She is experimenting with different ways of moving around, like putting her leg straight beside her...

This was pretty amusing. My mom got her a Tickle Me Elmo for Christmas, which she has really not had an interest in, until now. This model is so cute - Elmo laughs and laughs, while moving from one position in the other. In the picture below, he is on his back, kicking his feet back and forth, laughing hysterically. She stared at that thing forever and would then laugh!! I love how she is starting to see how things work and is getting interested in stuff like this!!


Jason's parents came in Saturday night to take Sophia and Jordan on a trip to the lake to meet up with Uncle Scotty, Aunt Faith, Robert, Isom, Kadin, and Jax. They get to spend the whole week at Lake Corpus Christi with their cousins and they are SO EXCITED THEY CANNOT STAND IT. On Sunday night, Jordan said he might not be able to even go to sleep!!

Isom and Jordan are about the same age and are totally in to the same things. Spy stuff, ninja, swords, Indiana Jones. And Poppy just loves it too. So Jordan informed us that the three of them would be having secret spy meetings on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Ok, we said. Sounds good.

Sophia and Robert are also the same age. Kadin is 4 now and Jax is 2. The kids do not get a chance to see each other very often, just because they live south of San Antonio. Part time visitation is hard when your family lives out of town! So in July, when we get the kids for the whole month, they try to plan a time for everyone to see each other. Robert and Shari come down from Seattle, and they at least spend some time with everyone. We couldn't take this whole week off but we will be going down with Avery on Friday.

When they walked through the door, Jordan and Soph immediately had game-playing plans...
 
And here is another kiddo Nawnie was happy to see...
 
 
Can't wait till Friday!!!

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

Our Trip to Orlando and Universal/Disney Travel Tips! (Long Post!!!)

Well, we just got back from our trip to Orlando! And I am tired and sore, but happy and so very glad we were able to do this as a family! Most of my Facebook peeps saw our pictures, but I wanted to share about our vacation and a little travel tips for those thinking of planning something similiar! 
Use a Travel Agent!
First and foremost - I booked my trip, basically last minute, through the amazing and wonderful Lana Kluge . Booking through a travel agent costs you, the consumer, NOTHING. It doesn't make your trip any more expensive and adds nothing to your end bill. What it does do is add a valuable service to your vacation, and that's exactly what Lana offered us. She has been to Disney multiple times and was able to answer all of my many questions up to, and while on, my vacation. Even with booking our resort, we were able to ask where our room was located, as the resort we stayed at (Art of Animation) is very large and I read people saying they had to walk a very long way …
