Avery pics

My in laws are coming tomorrow to stay with us for a little while, so we have been busy, busy little bees for the last week trying to get things ready. I've made all of my Christmas gifts this year (but of course, I can't show them to you, don't want wondering eyes to see.) Well, I've made them all except the kids. I must say, I have surprised myself with what I can do. I have a few projects that I've done for others that I'd like to do for myself!

I haven't posted Avery pictures in a few days so I thought I would show you my big girl.

In the mornings, we move the highchair into our room while we get ready so Avery can eat some breakfast and watch some TV. Lately it's been the Wiggles, but I don't think she is that attached to it yet. Have I told you all how much I love having wood floors? And dogs that will come back behind food thrown on the floor?

My daughter is just a delight. She really is a joy every day. She is the light of my life and I love, love, love watching her and observing all of the things she can do. To watch her walk now, you'd think she's been doing it forever. But she still has that toddler, bow legged thing going on, that makes us laugh sometimes. Especially when she gets to walking really fast.

Her new words she can say are "night night," "ewww," and "go go go" (Jason has taught her that for when they are driving).

Her hair is long enough for pig tails, but it's in that weird, sticking up like horns thing and I don't have a set of matching small bows. So lately, it's just been a ponytail.

If you'll notice in the picture above, she has her dolly by the leg, carrying it around. That little leg is about to come off! She can't carry a doll or animal unless it's by the leg, which is odd, but that's what she does. She's not really interested in toys much, just books and stuffed animals. And stuff she's not supposed to have. We actually decided that this year, she would only get three small toys from us and a couple from Santa. I've seen a ton of stuff, but I just know it will sit on the ground and she won't play with it. I got her one of those pull string toys, which I think she will really like. She likes to drag things around.

Jason says she looks like me and I think I would agree! But she is much more beautiful than I am - my husband and I made one good looking baby, I think!!

One more working day until I am off for five days! Yeah!

We got George a few books for Christmas and that's it-his grandparents will buy him LOTS of toys so there is no need for us to do it.

And I love having a dog who cleans up messes-it saves so much time :)

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 …
