Wonderful Day

What a day!! Today I turned 34...not a big birthday...but an absolute wonderful one! It started off with Lee helping me get the kids up and going so that I could take a shower and get dressed by MYSELF!! You other moms know what a blessing that is! :) Then Amy J and Mary brought me breakfast and visited for a couple hours. I have been friends with Amy since the 8th grade and Mary since the 10th grade...nothing like old friends!
I then headed to the movies to see Eat, Pray, Love with Melinda. YES, you read that the middle of the day!! What a treat! Thanks to Mary who took both of my sweet kids to her house for the afternoon. Melinda and I started this tradition last year. We never get out to see movies so we give that to each other on our birthdays. Movie, popcorn, is SO nice!
I raced to Mary's to pick up the kids...then ran back home to get them packed for a night at Capt and Gigi's. Lee met us at home and we headed to and dad kept the kids while we had dinner out. Steak and shrimp for me at Longhorns...YUM! Then my dad made his infamous blackberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream.

There were no big gifts (unless you count my used Treadmill that I NEEDED) and no big parties...just a wonderful sweet day with my best friends and family. It was just what I needed! Here are a couple pictures of my family...I want to remember being 34 and being a mama to these sweet babies. They are my life and I am so grateful that I was chosen to be their mom. I am extremely blessed and so thankful for my 34 years! Hears to the next 34!!

Hi There...

Yeah I know...been gone WAY too long!! So much has happened in our little life. First Eli broke my laptop and we have been without a computer until this past weekend. Yes, I have been living off my Blackberry...aka Crackberry. Plus I found out I was pregnant with our 2nd baby in October. We were surprised but so excited! So the last 10 months have been a bit crazy in these here parts! :)

I am going to try and catch up my blog over the next couple weeks. So if you already know all that has happened and don't want to read about might want to check back in! I have missed you guys!!

So excited to be back! Here are pics of our two lil ones...Eli (22 months)and Molly (6 weeks).
