More Family Pictures...

Oh did such a good job! We got our picture CD today and I can't wait to get these printed and on our walls! If you are looking for a photographer in the Dallas area, she is amazing and is amazing with kids, for sure! The reason I love her is because she is great at getting all of the shots that aren't posed, and those are my most favorite!
LOVE this face so much...

Jordan loves Avery more than I ever thought possible. He finds it his duty to make sure she is OK. Now, as for Sophia, he currently makes it his duty to aggravate and annoy her as much as possible. Sheesh.

Jordan kept putting his hand in his sleeve and it made Avery laugh SO hard. 

If you can get kids to pose for pictures for an hour or longer without bribes, more power to you. I am not ashamed to admit I stoop to sugar.

I know you aren't supposed to say this, but WHY oh WHY could I not find my Spanx that day?? It's a good picture anyway. Jason is definitely getting better with age. I need to do something to keep up.
I love that Jordan actually smiled with his teeth in this picture. He really is starting to look so old!
She was so mad that we took that black sweater away from her. She's two. What can I say.
So, to keep things moving, we gave it back. Sophia gave her a disapproving look.
 We honestly don't ever do that. I swear. Don't worry. She got a stern talking to.

I'm gonna getcha!

This is suuuuchhh a great picture of these two.

This really wasn't staged for pictures. The kids asked me to get smores since it was a cold day and to do them around our fire pit. I told them, in front of Allison, that I had already got smores stuff and we would do them if they got through the session with cooperation. Allison asked if she could take pictures of it. Turned out great! I told you I wasn't above bribery.
It wasn't without its hazards, though!

I told Allison she is coming back in six months and Jason and I both decided we would be tan and skinny. But they still turned out beautiful!

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 …
