2014 In Review

Avery spent her first full year in big kid school! She has loved learning new things and comes home every day telling us of great things she's done. In the fall, she started at a new school and goes four days a week. We will keep her in this school until she starts kindergarten!
 
 
 
 
I got my Real Estate license and became a licensed Realtor!
 
 
It has been an entirely new experience for me and I am so glad about this new phase of life!!
 
Jason and I got to go on two trips together this year, which is a huge blessing and we are so excited to be able to spend that time together. We celebrated four years of marriage in Las Vegas and went to the beach in Fort Lauderdale!
 
 
 
As a family, we took our first long road trip to the Grand Canyon!! We had such a great week of time together.
 
 
 
I did a lot of decorating for our house this year!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
We got to spend the summer at Hawaiian Falls this year!! And mom got a great tan (which is gone, boo) Avery also learned to swim with no floaties!!
 
 
 
 
We celebrated three birthdays. We have a 12 year old, a 9 year old and a 4 year old!
 
 
 
(Jordan went paintballing, no picture to show for that!)
 
We did our last year of trick or treating with all three kids. Next year, we will have a teenager. (Sob)
 
 
We also spent the last year for a few years with all three kids for Easter. It has always fallen on our weekend, but I think next year, it won't. (Sob)
 
 
We also took lots of family pictures this year....
 
 


 
It's been a wonderful year for us and we are so thankful for all of God's blessings in our life. On to 2015!!

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…

Dancing With Dad

I have been working on a project these last couple of weeks for my previous company. Yesterday, I was working on my computer and heard roaring laughter coming from Avery's room. I walk in and found Jason and Avery dancing and singing away. 




 By sheer coincidence, this popped up on my Timehop today. Avery was only 1 in this picture.

Boy, are these kiddos lucky to have such a great dad! It makes me heart melt.
