Mother's Day! (Better late than never)

So, Brooke and I got some new cameras for Mother's Day! We were so happy to try them out! My family came over to my house where we enjoyed some yummy chopped beef sandwiches, fattening sides, and a delicious lemon cake my aunt made. Honestly, I don't even like lemon cake, but it's like if my aunt or mom make a baked good, it still tastes heavenly. I only had 1 (3) piece though.

Here is Brooke, waving her hand incredibly fast to see how fast the camera took the pic. Sorry, Brooke, I thought your face looked funny here.

Eating some delicious lunch...

Hi Dabe! (that's what Avery says every time he comes into the room)

Avery's big thing lately is crawling into chairs.


Man, when Leslie is around, Avery gets constant attention. (OK, she constant attention anyway, but when Leslie is around, it's undivided!)

Avery would run down the hall then run back and Leslie would chase her...

Then Avery would knock Leslie over and then come back over and kiss her to "wake her up."

Yay! She's awake! My hero!

Then me and Avery played dress up. Bella participated. I don't think she was amused.

I love the face Avery is giving me here.

Avery, I love you so much. Thank you for making me a mommy and thank you for giving me a chance to love someone else on this earth more than I will ever love myself! You are the light of my life!

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 …
