Weekend in Roswell

We went to go pick up Jordan after he spent a week with Robert in Roswell and got to hang out with Faith, our four nephews, our Grandma Brown, and finally got to meet Jason's Aunt Lori face to face, after having been Facebook friends for several years. It was a nice time!!
The kids were all really excited to be around each other, per the usual. When you get 7 kids together, from 11 down to 2, to spend two nights together, it's bound to be one rowdy good time.
They had a water gun fight Saturday, after 4 of them had been fishing in the morning. It was kind of nuts, but we laughed and laughed.

Right in front of the firing squad for a posed picture...

7 kids and one very overgrown teenager.

Avery was soaked and had such a blast!!

Do you know how annoying and impossible to get 7 kids, especially 5 BOYS to pose for a picture together?

Yeah, Avery, what ARE those boys doing?

Yes, the picture below is what most of the pictures looked like. Adults trying to get kids to stand still, put the swords down, "just one more minute," you know. Stuff like that.

Girls just know what to do for a camera, don't they??? 
I just thought this one was funny of Kadin... :-)

Jordan just trying to hold on for Jax, just for a minute!!

Kadin LOVES Avery...

YES, Avery, boys are bad and will teach you bad habits...

Little stinker.

 It was so nice to visit family, but so nice to be home! I often find myself being the kids police. When there are more kids than adults, it's either they are control or you are! Sometimes, I still think to myself, "When did I become the adult, again?" And I was just thinking about how hard it's going to be when all of these kids become teenagers. Hopefully, by then, we won't have to lift a finger when we are all together, they can cook all of the meals and do all of the cleaning themselves for US, right?

Back to work tomorrow!

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 …
