Happy Birthday USMC!


We had a fabulous time at the ball this year!  It is so much getting to get pampered, dressing up in a nice gown, and having a night away without kids!  Thanks so much to the Cellon family for watching our kiddos overnight!  This year I got my nails done, my hair curled, and eyelash extensions, and I love them!  I have had blond stubs for eyelashes my whole life, and having pretty lashes now, I could totally keep this up, and I think I will for the holiday season!


Got my dress at a yard sale for $20, and I loved it, very comfy and loose! :)


My husband looks pretty good in uniform! :)  I must admit, it's one of my favorite parts of the ball, seeing Steven dressed up!  Lookin good babe!

Look Whoooos 4 and 1!


We had an owl theme birthday party for Emma and Abby at the park by our house!  It was a ton of fun, super simple, just desserts, and the kiddos loved it!


Emma wanted to blow out Abby's candle too!


Made these owls from pinterest, really cute, but really time consuming!

The acorns were yummy and very easy to make!


Made my first pennant! It's hanging in the girls room too!


Happy Abby!


My three little owls!  All the girls love their hats, and Emma won't take it off!

Happy Halloween!

I was going to make their Halloween cosutmes, via pinterest ideas, but I found the bumblebee and ladybug costumes on sale at old navy, and decided to use a credit card point gift card that I had to save me some time.  Soooo glad I bought them, because they LOVE playing with them, and put them on pretty much every day!  I sat them down to take some quick pics, and Loved the way they turned out!

Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Abby!

Abigail means "my father's joy"....and you truely are the light of your parent's lives!  Sweet baby Abby you bring us such my joy, with your sweet smile, and hilarious laugh.  We love how you love to be held, even when it means we don't get much done. :)

Sweet Abby, you LOVE your big sisters.  Your face lights up in the mornings when you see Gracie and Emma....and you love it when they climb in your crib to talk and play with you first thing in the morning.  Nothing can make you laugh as much as Gracie, you crack up when she sings to you, hullahoops, and plays peek a boo with you.

Sweet Abigail, you are so cute when you crinkle your nose and make funny faces at your sisters!


We love your beautiful gray eyes, they are gorgeous!


Baby Abby, we are so thankful for the blessing that God has given to our family when He gave us you.  Happy Birthday our sweet girl!

Hannah Ranea and Lydia Faith

 Sweet Hannah...born 3 pounds 11 oz, she is up to 4 pounds now!  She is so sweet and beautiful, looks like Heather, has the tiniest head you have ever seen!  I got to hold her on my birthday and it was the best birthday present ever!
Beautiful Lydia, born 4 lbs 12 oz, she is up to 4 lbs 13 oz today.....She is no longer in the isolet and is holding her temperature great, and best news.....should go home on Friday!

I am in love with my new nieces and being around them has made it worth it living here in OK! They are both nursing great, and Hannah should be home on Monday or Tuesday!  Praise the Lord for these tiny miracles!

9 months old!




Abby is now 9 months old.....and big news this week...She finally started scooting hopefully she will be crawling soon.  I'm personally in no rush, I like it that she stays in one place! :)

Swim Time


We have been living in the water lately....with 100+ heat for the past 28 days and no end in site, it is the only out door activity that will keep us cool!  The girls love their backyard pool!


They also are doing swim lessons together and doing great!  Gracie is becoming quite a little fish, but Emma still gets scared.  She will put her face in the water, but won't go where she can't touch, even with her life vest on...

Gracie and Emma's friends Kylie and Korbin are here visiting their grandparents from Alaska, and we have had a great time playing with them.  The girls love sliding into their pool.  Emma kept saying, "This is the best day ever!"  Kaleb and Kacie have been house sitting this week, with an awesome pool and we have already been twice.  We usually don't even start swimming until about 7 pm because its soooo hot outside, but the girls have loved it!

Abigail Faith is 8 months old!!




Abby is developing a darling personality the last few months....She loves to laugh at her big sisters...Abby is playing more with her toys.....She is FINALLY sitting up on her own ( I blame grandparents for holding her ALL THE TIME! ).....She loves to eat baby food, loves everything, especially yogurt melts and puffs!......Abby still likes to be held, and knows how to turn the crying on, and once you pick her up, she suddenly stops.....Abby does not like her carseat, but loves to ride in the stroller and go places....The carseat is making me nervous about our upcoming 24 hour car trip back to NC!  Abby has light brown hair, and beautiful big gray eyes....they are not blue or brown, but the prettiest shade of light gray....I love them and hope they don't change!

Happy 4th of July!


We had a fabulous fourth of July hanging out with family and friends!  Trinity had a family fun night with inflatables, face painting, hot dogs, cotton candy, snow cones ( I LOVE snow cones ) and more and we watched the fire works from the parking lot!  The girls had a blast, too bad my mom had to stay home with Abby because she was sick... :(


We went to Heather's grandparents, who live on a 100 acre farm, to fish and have a cookout, and the kiddos had a blast!  Gracie caught the first fish!

Emma loved canoeing with her Papa!

My sweet little ladies....we sure do miss Daddy though!

Sisters and best friends....

Outside and Garden fun!

We are LOVING having a garden.....I was eating fresh salads with lettuce and spinach from the garden every day, along with onions and banana peppers...yummy!  It's been pretty hot this week, so the lettuce has gotten a little bit bitter, but we have lots of green tomatoes....We planted 37 tomato plants, so in a few weeks, I will be eating tomatoes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! :)  The broccoli is really yummy, I have never seen such green broccoli after cooking, and it tastes soooo good!  Here are some pics of the garden and the kiddos playing outside!
