6 is oh so sweet!

So, somehow I missed posting about Zoe's birthday! I know, just another way to feel bad, but busy busy busy!

Last Monday Zoe turned 6. I can't believe the changes I've seen in this beautiful little girl in 6 years
She's growing up to be a smart, funny, beautiful caring little miss and I can't wait to see what else God has in store for her. I struggled with her strong will for so long and after my prayers of "just let me make it another day without strangling her" it's turned into "God help us to tame her will and not break it but direct it to You b/c she'll be unstoppable for Your kingdom when she gets started on that path". And oh how I've loved to see that will of hers change into a more moldable power within her, all given by the grace of God. She's amazing! She loves school, loves math and loves to read. I couldn't ask for a better daughter!

Happy Birthday little Miss! Mommy loves you!

Kindergarten Music Concert

Tonight was Zoe's first music program with school and boy was it fun! It was all storytime songs and Lexi loved it as much as I did. Here's a little video so you can enjoy it to!

Best picture of the year award

So, as one of my goals of this new year I wanted to take more pictures and not just more pictures but better pictures. I mean ya know, good pictures! So in keeping with my new years resolutions while in St. Louis on our way to Chicago (to fulfill another of my goals for the year) I took this picture. I'm soo proud of it and I can't wait to enter it in a photography show and see how it does. I'm just trying to figure out what to title it... any ideas?

Another year older

On Wednesday last week I turned 29, that's right my last year in my 20's. Though my lovely husband thinks it's fun to tell people I'm 30, but I won't be joining him yet in that decade for another year. Now I'm not really one to be scared off by ages, I mean, you can't stop it so we should just embrace it! So I've been embracing. I love my life. I have two beautiful girls that I'm soo blessed to get to stay at home with and have stayed at home with them since even before day 1- outside utero that is. I love them. I have a husband that spoils me on a daily basis and I have few regrets about how I've lived my past 28 years. And just to show how spoiled I am here is everything I got for my birthday.
Love this Easter skirt from my love.
This wonderful gift here is a 3D lollipop from my youngest. It's an oozy sucker! The gift that just keeps on giving... in this case it really is the thought that counts as I'm not sure I can bring myself to eat this.
It's hard to see but with this beautiful table scape comes a peony, a Heather shrub and 5 other gifts. Love my family! Love waking up to this!
And here's to at least another 28 years!
