A cheerleader, a princess, and a ladybug...

walk into a bar... HaHa...sounds like a funny joke that I'm tryin to tell, but in real life, I'm terrible at telling jokes. I ALWAYS mess up the sue me! Anyways, A cheerleader, a princess, and a ladybug is what our girls were for halloween. They were super cute!

We took them trunk or treating at a local church and then made a few stops at some "important" houses, then came home...No biggie, but they got tons of candy! Nana and papa even gave them some new books to read, and a family friend had them little goodie bags made up that included lip gloss (which a HUGE hit)!!!! When you have 3 little girls, it doesn't get much better than lip gloss, RIGHT??? Oh My...they are so girly!!!

Football Games and Life

We moved back to my hometown in June. We had a hard time finding a place to live here, so we took the only house we could find at the time. We lived in that house for almost 3 months, then moved AGAIN into a bit bigger, alot nicer, house. We have lived in this new house for 1 month now. It has been a huge adjustment for us, moving to the "country." We are city people at heart, we love everything about the city. The busyness, the 'luxuries' you have, the vast diversity of people, the restaurants, the endless options you have at your fingertips...but we felt it was best if our girls grew up close to some family. We love it that grandmas and grandpas and cousins and aunts and uncles live only 5-30 minutes away. Visiting them no longer takes extensive planning, which is nice!

Abby is in Pre-K this year...they go to Pre-K ALL day, 5 days/week, which is alot!!! She loves school though. During Homecoming week, her class rode in a float and she thought it was the coolest thing ever! Our girls also went to their very first football game and loved watching the cheerleaders...go figure! They ate suckers, sang the school song, and cheered with the cheerleaders. We sat in the middle 2nd row the girls were in heaven!!! When we left, Abby said "Mom, did you see those cheerleaders? Weren't they BEAUTIFUL???" Oh, to see the world in the eyes of a 4 year old!

My papa's a Firefighter

Miss Aniya and her papa :) Niya was 10 months old and thought she was HOTT stuff wearing her papa's hat!!! Papa has been a volunteer firefighter for 14 years and the girls always love wearing his hats and seeing his firetruck! Horray for cool papa's!!!

Proverbs 16:9

We are moving 2 weeks from TODAY!!! It almost doesn't seem possible that it is already so close. We have hit some hurdles in the last couple weeks, and are once again looking for a place to live {boo}.

Andy Horner (an Absolutely Amazing man), co-founder of Premier Designs Jewelry, once said at Rally:
"In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps." ~Proverbs 16:9

I keep telling myself that all the planning and preparation in the world will do no good if that's not GOD'S plan for us. It is so hard for me to not be in control, and know exactly what the next step will be...but I have to put faith in GOD and trust that he will provide exactly what we need in HIS time!

Here are our 3 little princesses this morning (one extremely tired, cranky princess.)

A "Perfect" Day!

We have had a "perfect" day today...everyone was happy the WHOLE day! With 3 little girls, perfect days are very rare!!! Today we went to the zoo, took a train ride, and stopped for strawberry shakes on the way home.
*edited: as i look at this picture, i think that abby had to pee, LOL!!! oh my!
The girls LOVED the train ride!

Richard and I cherish our days off together. We only get about 4 days a month off together, and those days are so special to us!

They see me rollin'...

They hatin'...

I was stopped at a stoplight behind this man. I thought it was hilarious that he was driving his scooter chair down the middle of the lane! I was talking to a friend about this man, and apparently he drives that thing ALL over town! It must have an amazing battery!!!

out of a funk

We have been super busy the last several months. We moved in September, and have been working different shifts to avoid the cost of daycare. (and we will be moving AGAIN in 6 weeks.) I have not had time for (or not chose to spend my time) blogging. I intend to change that!!! I love recording our memories on our blog and sharing them with family and friends! I will not promise abundant blog posts in the near future...but I WILL do better than I have in the previous months!

Enjoy the pictures that have NO relevancy to this post, LOL!

My nanny on her 80th birthday in March with Aniya. This woman is so special to me, I love her so much!!! This trip to Oklahoma was hard for made my heart heavy, and made me miss family. I cried for a whole hour after we left town. It was so hard for me to see all of my family, and see the girls playing with all their cousins, and then take them away from that back to a town where we have no family. On the way home, Richard said, "It's time." And that was it, we decided it was time to move closer to family!

Our other 2 pretty girls! They are getting so big, its unbelievable!!!

We have found a place to live down there, and will be moving the end of June. My job will transfer, and Richard will spend a year finishing school. He is going back to school to do something he has always mechanics. I'm so happy he is going to be doing something he loves!!!

My loves

The 4 loves of my life!!! My wonderful husband of almost 6 years whom is always there for me, always believes in me, and always tells me how beautiful I am. I love him so much!

Our 2 oldest daughters; Abby and Alivia. These two little girls are best friends, they do EVERYTHING together! They bring us lots of joy and laughter. They are getting so big, and their personalities show in everything they do!

Our baby, our very LAST baby; Aniya! We are so blessed and lucky to have her here with us! She's the baby that God planned for our family! She is such a happy baby, and we love seeing her smiling face everyday!
We look forward to all the life adventures of having 3 little girls.
*And, Miss Niya just learned to crawl yesterday!!!

I love these 4 people more than anything!

Just Us!

We have been super busy these days. We moved to a different city, and are loving it here! We definitely like living in a bigger city rather than the small town life! We NEED things to do...and we are loving all the options we have here!!!
Blogging has NOT been at the top of my to-do list lately....but here is a photo of me and my honey! We were on our way to the zoo with the girls!

I have lots of things I want to blog about, so maybe I'll blog again soon....maybe......
