Living the DREAM..

Tomorrow we are heading out to Tampa Fl with Fred for work...though its not going to be just work..we are finding a way to play too with our crew of four;)
We will drive to Lakeland Fl the very next day for the 'SUN N FUN' Airplane show (we are also taking Grandma Hope & Aunt Eva along). Then, after that...WE ARE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD! YEAHHHHHH! The boys will miss school, but this is oh so worth it;) Hope is heading for her first Disney experience!
How old am I? Listen to would be worse if you saw my face right now as I write this..I got this huge, cheesy, grin on;)) and I talk to Hope about it..she just smiles..'your nuts mama!' I already got her Tinkerbell thrilling, going to Disney with MY LITTLE GIRL! God you are too good to me!


P.S. Hope got her U.S. Citizen Certificate!

Easter Was A BLAST!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while! I hate even saying that line..cause I sound like all of you guys! HE HE;)

Well I just celebrated my Birthday, so I am a year older..I feel it..cause this last year was so STRESSSSSFUL! Though all is in the past..and I am ready for living. Hope is up and about walking! She still drives me crazy with her tantrums..but I know its only cause she loves me;) She has MOMMY-ITIS! She clips herself onto the back of my pants and follows me everywhere..even hiding from Daddy. I hope this doesn't last long, but I am holding onto these moments anyhow. She is doing great over all! We just completed some blood work, and she is passing with FLYING COLORS! Such a relief;) We have a bone scan (CT scan) on the 12th...and more vaccines on the 30th along..with some ear peircing (hopefully). She is a tough cookie through & through...her sleeping is better, although she remains a light sleeper..and as soon as she is over tired, you know! She's a screamer! Yep...and dramatic!

We just adore her! As naughty as she is..its all part of her charm. Everyone agrees its as if she's always been. She now waves 'Hi',gives Five, and kisses on the lips..ouuhhh..what a lil lover girl..especially with her mommy;)

I've been really bad about taking pics of her though! I am so disapointed in myself for this..the truth of teh matter is..I'm still exhausted! I think with school back might help some...but its been tough! She is building up confidence..but she still needs time to adjust. She still is not fond of water, and is teething heavily. She now loves the dog, and uses Rexy as a method of balance...her intelligence continues to amaze us!

I hope you have all been well, and that your Easter was great...I know I need to post some comments on your blogs..I miss you guys a bunch!



Celebrating So Much..

Births of babies..
Hope's progress..

and most of all..OUR LORD LIVES! We serve a Risen SAVIOR!


And I've bruised & bled 3 times!

She was she walks now!

Easter Bunny

She almost didn't cry...and she knows all about candy;)

The Almost Perfect Family Pic;)

Notice, I still have that 'spaced out look'...I can't believe I have 4 kids! I can't believe Hope is home!
