The purpose of this blog is to capture some of the high lights and low lights of just normal day to day life. Our life is loud, busy, and fast, but we love it!


Mommy's Birthday

Thirty-two.....I remember when 30 seemed old. HA! I am so young!!! I wanted a picture with each of my girls and one with my gorgeous husband. Simple, but perfect. David got me a gift card to get a massage, the girls made cards, Mayah made me a shirt, and Leah said Happy Birthday. Dinner at Applebee's and 2 specialty cupcakes.

I GOT IT!!!!

Look at her!!!! She was so excited to find this toy in her hand...not even sure she knew how it got there!

I love this's like watching synapses in the brain connect! Amazing how we are created.

I thought I would be sad with each developmental milestone Emma hits, since she is our last baby, but I am instead enjoying them and celebrating. It has been a tough 4.5 months so anything "normal" is wonderful!

Extracurricular Activities

This year the girls are both participating in dance. Chiara is in Ballet II and Mayah is taking her first class, Creative Movement. Both girls are going to AWANA at Grace Church this year. This is Chiara's second year in Sparks and Mayah's second year in Cubbies. We are thrilled with the decision we made to move them to this program.

Chiara is taking a sewing class through our homeschool group. The list of projects is awesome! She has made a tote bag and a pillow case that was given to charity. Currently she is working on a pillowcase dress. It was so much fun taking her to JoAnn Fabrics to pick up the supplies. She is also trying to knit....that has been fun because I have taken it up to so that I can help her as needed. She even picked out yarn for me to make her a scarf. All these activities are keeping us busy, but I love watching them grow and mature!
