Howdy lovely readers :) Hope you are all doing well. I have been trying to get back into the swing of blogging and have actually started a daily blog about my daily migraine history. You can read it right here if you feel so inclined. I am just basically journaling about my daily foods and migraine history. I am trying to figure out my migraine triggers. Anyways, I am only 3 days into that but hopefully it will entice me back into my family blog.

I am in the process of planning Kirsten's 6th birthday! She is having a cowgirl themed birthday party at a local farm/ranch. She is going to have a blast with all her Sunday School friends and cousins.

I don't know if I have already posted (yes, I am too lazy to go back and look right now! ha!) but Noah got a job as a surgical tech!! We are so blessed. He starts on February 6th.

The kids are doing great! Bella is almost 18 months now and is really starting to explore the great big world of talking :) I love seeing her learn new things and the amazement in her eyes! She is so wild and likes to whine but I love her so much! We don't have a bottle anymore (since 11 months), still sleep comfortably in our crib with no intention of moving to a big girl bed anytime soon and are absolutely addicted to our pacifiers!! She will carry around 2 or 3 in her hands all the time. ha! :) Silly girl. I am confident that she will wean herself when she is ready though.

Kirsten will be 6 next month and is loving Kindergarten still. She is having some problems with phonics and I am trying hard to work with her on it. A friend of mine told me about and it is really awesome!! I truly love that website! If you have a preschooler to Kindergartener you should look into joining that website to help with their skills if they need it. They have really unique settings that work for each child! As soon as Bella is old enough, I will set her up an account too!

Elijah will be 8 in July & is still 100% boy. We are still having a little trouble from him at school but nothing like the previous years have been. He is soooo into his Wii and his Nintendo DS. We are having to monitor his usage on them because he wants to be on them all the time. He also got a netbook for Christmas from his pawpaw (Noah's dad) so he is up to date on his electronics. Right now he is really into Star Wars. He tries to get his sisters to "fight" him with the light sabers all the time...he really needs a brother! ha :)

We are heading to AR this weekend to see my family and celebrate my niece's 6th Birthday! I can't believe she is already 6 years old. I sure love that girl!

As far as I go, I am doing great! I only have 1 year of school left then my 12 weeks of student teaching and I will be DONE! I can't wait to walk across that stage and get my diploma! :) It has been a long road but I am so grateful and thankful that I did it and accomplished a life long goal!

Well I guess that is all for now! Hope you all have a great rest of the week and weekend!

Family Pictures

Hey Lovely blog readers...I know I am a terrible blogger lately. And I don't have a lot of time right now but I wanted to share some family photos we had taken back in November :) You can see how much the kids have grown! Elijah is 7 1/2, Kirsten will be 6 next month and Bella is 17 months! Wow how time flies. Our family is doing great! I only have 1 year of school left then I start my student teaching. Noah finally found work at a local hospital (praise Jesus!!). The kids are growing like weeds!!
