Cheers to you 2012! Welcome 2013!

I may not be wearing glitter and heels tonight as we say goodbye to 2012 but I am partying it up with my sweet family.  It was picnic night with lots of snack foods and Tinkerbell's Secret of the Wings!  Whoopwhoo!  The kids had a blast and we are currently trying to wrangle them to bed, so mommy and daddy can snuggle up and celebrate!  

2012 has been full of lots of ups and downs sprinkled with lots of laughter and a few tears.  I am praying 2013 is a great year for every member of my family and all of my friends!  I pray that each reach higher towards God and seek His wisdom daily.  I also pray that we all reach new heights in our own personal goals!  With God all things are possible that is my motto for 2013!! 

May God Bless you all in 2013 and thanks for the support in 2012!

 The beginning of 2012!!
The End 2012!!
Happy New Years from my crazy crew to your's!

another trip to the doctor

I would love to write and exciting blog post but after another trip with one of my kiddos to the doctor (my second in seven days), I am too tired.  Both kids are on meds for ear infections and this mommy and daddy is t-i-r-e-d!  Taylor has not slept well in a week, he got sick first (again) and then Emma started last night with a horrible night of sleep.  So we are hanging by a thread and praying all get well by Santa!  I am needing to finish shopping and wrapping! 

Love from one sleep deprived mom!

Girl's Day!

Yesterday was girl day with my sweet Rose and my mom, Meme. We went to lunch at Emma's favorite place the "Bird" or Red Robin to the rest of the world and then we went to the Mini Nutcracker at a local school.  It is a shorten version of the great ballet and it is done by the local parks ballet school.  It is so pretty and so much fun.  It was even more fun with my best friend and her sweet daughter also in the audience and we got to see them before and during the break.  Emma was thrilled to see her friend.  Next year we will work on getting tickets together.
  This is the second annual girl's day to see the Nutcracker, and we had so much fun.  Emma was so thrilled and loved the time without little brother.  Meme and me enjoyed seeing her so happy and so in love with all the pretty ballerinas. I will admit I would love to be a candy cane fairy:)  Plus we got mommy/daughter time together as well.  Special for us on so many levels!   It was a fabulous day and full of fun memories with my special girl and my mom!
Enjoy some photos from our fun day!

 Dressed in the cute nutcracker outfit I found at a local consignment sale, it is big so hopefully she can wear it next year too.
 Photo bombed by little brother, who was sad he was not going with us.
 My Mom, me and Emma all dressed up and ready to go!
 We finished the day off with some muffin making in our aprons.  We let Taylor in on this one.  I am in my pjs and my hair up but a sweet moment to share!
Being silly!
Memories are wonderful and I will linger on this special day for  a long time.  I love special days with my sweet girl and having mom with us is icing on the sugar plums:)
