Vacation Bound

We just got a phone call from the parents the other night. The conversation we had was a bitter/sweet one. My grandma is going to be visiting my sister and parents at the end of July. She is 86 years old and has been extremely healthy! Never had issues, always have something planned to do every single night of the week. You could not keep up with her! Until early this year. As of today she has already been admitted 4 times due to heart issues. Long story short she has never met our 3rd daughter and really have only met the other 2 girls once. She is wanting to see them so bad. So my parents decided they were going to fly us up there that way my grandma can meet her grand babies! At the same time this may be the last time I ever get to see my grandma. We are extremely excited to get back home! Its been over 1 1/2 years since we have seen family and friends and we are extremely excited to see my grandma. We have a lot to do in 3 weeks, you know how events come quickly and we have not told the girls yet! They will be so excited when they find out the day of that we are getting on an air plane to see family! The hubby has to get back home sometime in the middle of August but I plan on staying there with the girls for a couple months! Were taking full advantage of this opportunity of seeing family and friends.

If you want to read more about my shop and what inspires me please swing by her page. Just click on the photo and it will take you to her blog. She did an outstanding job drawing me! I will be printing this and framing it definitely! I just started my small shop back in January and have come just a little ways.

Part Day Preschool/Graduation day

My oldest graduates today from part day preschool! I'm super proud of her and cant wait to see her get her little diploma! I will most likely be homeschooling for some of the time come school time in September. Pre-school is not a required education and you have to pay here. There is a school that offers it for free. Your child gets assessed though and basically if your too smart you don't get accepted. Seriously? Is that even fair? So numbers, shapes, counting, fun activities it will probably be! And thank goodness for Pinterest! Lots of fun projects and activities on their to keep my littles busy and learning.

 Here she is! graduated from Part day Preschool!
Here is a picture with some of the other kids in the class!
We are so proud of how far she has come!

Ammie and Popi come to visit

April 9th my parents came from Washington state to visit for 10 days. We haven't seen them for over a year and it was a great visit! Here are some pictures with the grandkids.
 I absolutely love this shot of all of them together. They sure do love there Ammie and Popi!
 The girls on their new bikes that Ammie and Popi bought them. They were so excited!
This was there first time meeting baby. Baby K was 6 months in this picture.
She took right to them as well. Which was awesome. I figured she was going to be a little afraid but not one bit!
We definitely had a busy but fun weekend. We went to Bush Gardens, The jump house, shopping. And even daddy and mommy got 2 date nights ! We haven't had a date night in over a year and a half.
It was super nice to be able to spend time with him.

Busy Life

Man!! What a crazy last month it has been! I have had no time to hop on the computer and blog! With my 5 month old teething right now and throwing the biggest fit ever at night not wanting to go to bed and then on top of that wanting to wake up 3 to 4 times a night to feed, I am exhausted! Then my oldest got sick with a 24 hr flu and I was up all night with her. To be honest I haven't even hit the gym or been eating very properly. But thats ok right? As long as I get back on the train and go. So today is March 1st. I think I have enough energy to start working out again. But I am going to have to do my workouts at home all month long. My hubby just left this morning for 3 weeks to Pennsylvania for warrior leadership school. I am going to miss him so much! He is my best friend and I hate being away from him. But luckily it's only 3 weeks and not deployment. I have been somewhat busy though this past month with re-launching my etsy shop and opened up a page on Instagram to sell my headbands. I also use to sew a long time ago. And for valentines my wonderful hubby bought me a sewing machine! So I have been working on new projects for my store!
