Temper Tantrums, Boy Oh Boy! (Or, Girl Oh Girl...)

Isn't she adorable when she's sleeping?

This child. This tornado of a child.
These were her mood swings, and this only describes about 10 minutes: She didn't want an apple. She did want an apple. She didn't want to ask nicely for a piece of apple. She wanted applesauce. She wanted apple juice. She didn't want apple juice. She wanted to feed herself applesauce. She spilled applesauce. She couldn't get applesauce off her hand. Bella licked applesauce off her hand. She had to go potty. She didn't want to go potty. She wanted to jump. She didn't want to jump. She was mad she couldn't jump higher than she could jump. She hurt her foot jumping. She wanted to watch Tangled. She didn't want to watch Tangled. She wanted to watch Tangled and Shrek at the same time. She only wanted to watch a minute of both, then came to jump on me. She was mad I wouldn't let her jump on me. Any of these small things could result in a massive, oversized, kicking and screaming tantrum. We had three today, a new Avery record.
Jason just sat and watched her and looked at me and said, "I have never had a child throw a fit like this. Not once." I said, "You've never had one of your children be the daughter of Jenna Pecor." He laughed and so did I. It was all we could do, as Avery sat and stomped her feet and her face turned red and she threw herself on the ground. And then, it was done. The epicenter of the tornado, then the calm after the storm.
Yeah, this pretty much sums it up. Avery just as happy as can be, and Jason just, well, just sitting in disbelief.
Sigh. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Ohhh!! That stage can be fun. =) My 3 year old can be that way, but the closer she gets to 4, the less and less it happens.
Oh that's good to hear. Avery is 2 and a half, they are just now starting to rev up. Ha ha!

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 …
