Happy 2nd Birthday Avery!

My baby is 2. My big girl, I mean. I can't believe how old she is getting!
 
We had a Minnie Mouse party this year. I try to do themes that she loves, instead of just ones I think are cute...
 

My mom made her this ADORABLE outfit to match the theme. It was sooo cute!!!
 
 

 
We are so happy that Scotty, Faith and the boys got to come spend the afternoon with us...this house is perfect for lots of kids!
 
 







Everyone got to come and I mean, everyone in her entire family, her babysitter Jenn, and friends. I can't tell you how awesome this was to me, especially, to have everyone we love under the same roof for an afternoon.

I made the cake and I have to admit, I was pretty proud of myself.



Cute little Minnie balloons





The three girls...



I look over and Avery and Jax (who is 3) are just playing air hockey together. It was pretty cute.



Here the men are, guarding the food (or so it looked like)



I made the Pops and the Poppy play a game. Since Minnie owns a "bowtique," they had to put bows in their hair and we played a Minnie and Mickey trivia game. Neither of them were very happy with me, as evidenced by this picture. Thank you, though, for being good sports about it!



When we sang happy birthday, it was so loud! She loved it. She has been walking around all week singing "Happy birthday to Avery."



Yumm, cake.



Shari and Robert got us an early Christmas present...



Jason thought the sunroom would make a good game room and since we had all that room, we needed a pingpong table. I had visions of beautiful furniture in it, but how much more seating do we need in my house, really? After seeing how much action that table has received in the last few days, I am thinking it was a pretty good idea!

It was such a great day!

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 …
