Easter 2014

Because of the way the custody papers are drawn up, whatever weekend Easter falls on in the month is who has the kids (1st, 3rd, etc.) We have had the kids for Easter for the last 3 years, I think. We won't have them again on Easter for 6 years, or until Jordan is a senior in high school. So, we decided to spend our Easter with their cousins in San Antonio.
My brother in law is an associate pastor at a cowboy church. We really love going there and visiting their church. They have an arena out back and everyone wears cowboy hats and I love the music - steel guitars, country voices. It's great. They always do really awesome community events as well - we went down there one Halloween and it was awesome. Well, Easter was no exception! We basically arrived and drove straight to the Easter egg hunt. They put out 20,000 eggs. Man, it was amazing! There wasn't any candy in them - they said one year they put candy in the eggs and all of the eggs were covered in fire ants - so they kids had to bring 30 empty eggs and redeem them for a big bag of candy. I thought this was a good way to prevent fighting!
My child, the girl with the always un-tied tennis shoes.

Not sure how many more Easter egg hunts Jordan has in him.

Kadin LOVES Avery. He leads her around, holding her hand. He plays house with her and is so sweet to her. It's the cutest thing to watch!

We all decided to color coordinate to take some pictures. Taking pictures of 7 children isn't easy, but it's getting easier as they get older!!

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 …
