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 ABCmouse.com 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
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!

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!!
