What I've Been Up To

Well, I know it has been a bit since my last post, but I have been all over the place. I have also spent more time focusing on this weight loss contest that is over NEXT FRIDAY! Spare time has been spent working out, but for a good cause.
Austin had a Birthday on December 23 and because it is right at Christmas, we pushed it back a bit. I did not intend on pushing it back this far, but Austin could not decide what he wanted to do. We finally settled on Snow Mountain at Stone Mountain Park. Here are some pics from that day.

Me and Derek

Autumn and Bradley (Cousin and Brother to Justin, who is in Afghanistan)

The whole crew. It was fun. We had to take both cars to get them all there.

Autumn and Bradley again.


I got some pics of them sliding on the snow, but the pics were taken from so far away.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I captured my Oldest and my youngest in a moment! Aren't they sweet?

Such Sweetness. Cute story: My Birthday was December 13th and Avery does not understand that my Birthday was only for one day. Every night, she tells me Happy Birthday. I am not kidding. She only missed a night when she fell asleep and I had to carry her to bed. She knows it is not my Birthday and tells me anyway.

Does this child look 5 years old? She fixed her hair this way and was sassing around. I think she looks much older.

They love baths!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We took a trip to TJMAXX. Avery could not resist! How many times have you or your kids put on big hats in stores?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Baseball practice was called off Saturday due to tournaments, so I decided to be a good Mommy and take them to the park. They were so excited and we were the only ones there for a long time. It was a beautiful day.



That is NOT a bird way up in that tree! It is Austin's Boomerang! He threw about 50 sticks before it finally came down!

Derek and Munson wrestling on the floor.

Wanna know how to make the yummiest Asparagus and Prosciutto Wraps? Go HERE!

And here is Autumn entertaining the girls.

Please continue to pray for my Cousin Justin. He is in Afghanistan and we do not get to talk to him very often at all. He sure could use all the prayers you can spare! Let's pray our Marines home!!

Have a great week!

You look great! Way to go working out. I need to get in gear myself. ; )

Your girls are beautiful! Wow. Love the hat pic.

You asked about the punch...another hostess did it, but it was just ginger ale mixed with orange pineapple juice. I'm sure you could mix in any juice with the ginger ale. Experiment if you want to. ; )

I added lemon slices for looks. Good luck!
