Not-So-Wordless Wednesday

Who ARE these kids? These big kids??
No seriously. Where did these kids go...
And these...
Time flies by, doesn't it.
I am sure you all notice Jordan's hat - it's not a secret that Jordan certainly has very specific ideas of what he likes to wear. He loves hat and specifically, he loves fedoras. Not sure where that came from (probably Indiana Jones...) but we kind of are going through this growing pain stage where it's like, "While we know you love hats, let's find some that are more your age, that don't just look like you are playing dress up all the time?" We want him to wear hats wherever he wants, and when we found this plaid cute hat we all just thought he looked adorable in. It's a hat he could wear to church, to dinner, everywhere. We try to encourage all of the kids to dress how they want to dress, but also dress in appropriate things for your age. We don't want to surpress their individuality. I love that Jordan is unique...but I also want him to wear appropriate things too.
Anyway, we also went swimming at my moms. The girls are fish, Jordan, not so much. He just isn't one of those that would choose to go swimming. I think he spent alot of the day inside doing other things, which is why he isn't in any of these pictures.
My mom called Avery the "bobber" becaue she just bobbed with that life jacket on.

Her and her sister had alot of fun for sure...
Avery loves swimming. We are going to have to get her into some lessons!

She loves to jump to us from the side...

She would climb in, then climb out, over and over.

She even got to wear goggles!

We've come a long way, baby...

Looking forward to more of this!!

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 …
