It's Fall Y'all

Today was a perfect fall day. We took a trip to the orchard and made some memories! Both girls loved it. Time is moving way too fast!

Aubry: a few weeks shy of 5. Loves tumbling, crafts, coloring, cooking, and having tons of energy. Dislikes: cleaning and cleaning. Lol!
Finley: 9 months. Likes: Mama, food, peek-a-boo, mirrors, playing, climbing stairs.
Dislikes: not being held and sleeping.

December 2011

I haven't blogged in a long time! I was really hoping to blog at least once a month this year and keep our distant family informed with what we have been up to! I figured I would start with December 2011. It was a big month for us after all...
We had this precious thing....
Finley Gean was born December 21 and was a tiny 7lbs 4 oz. She is such a good and quiet baby and we love her so much! Big sister Aubry is obsessed with her too. She is always wanting to cuddle with her and can't wait until she is big enough to play with her.

We also had Christmas and all of those festivities in December. We had a great day with friends decorating gingerbread houses and driving around to see lights. Aubry loved exchanging gifts with her friends too. Then we had Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with family.

This was one of Aubry's favorite gifts. She had been asking for Kit for months and she finally got her! She takes her everywhere!

We have also been doing a lot more work on the house. I did this pinterest project in December and is a good solution when you have stainless appliances. I still have to get some clothespins to pin the cards to it but until then it is working with just the slats in the shutter. We just got done doing our kitchen too so I will take some pictures and post before and after pictures soon!

Moving Right Along...

We sold our house! Yay!! We closed last week. The same day we got a response saying the short sale on the new house was approved! YAY!! We are supposed to be closing sometime in the beginning of October now. I couldn't be more excited considering we have to have the house done (it needs some work) and moved into by December. :) I guess we decide to renovate and move everytime I am pregnant. I am going to be trying to post more as we renovate and redecorate. As soon as we close, I will post pictures of the before.
Aubry started preschool at the end of August. She goes 2 days a week this year and we got the teachers we were wanting. She loves them both and loving school! This is her when she went to meet her teachers.

This is Aubry on her first day of school. She wanted to wear a dress but I made her wear something so she could play outside on the playground. It was a struggle that morning and I am sure there are many more of those to come!

She also had her first sleepover with her cousin Kynsey that day. They get along and play really well together. They're so sweet! They both went to gymnastics and then came back to our house to play....alll....night....long. HA! The next day they had lunch and went to Target for shopping. I think they had a good time!

The past few weeks...months...I lost count.

I haven't been keeping up on blogging...or cleaning...or anything really. We haven't been up to very much lately and I am ready for school to start again Monday and gymnastics is in full swing again too. I am ready to be on a schedule!
Still no word on the house. I am going out of my mind crazy just being ready to get into this new house so I am not moving in the middle of December and being 100 months pregnant. We are expecting our second girl close to Christmas. I am due December 27 but since I had a csection with Aubry then I will have another one on December 20. I have a feeling we may be moving December 27. That would be our fashion since that's how we did it last time!
Just a little update in our lives :)

You've got a friend in me...

Someone recently asked me, "What is a friend?"
To me, that is easy. A friend loves at all times and does not love selfishly. You do things you don't want to do sometimes because it makes someone else happy. We all have to make those sacrifices in our lives whether it is your job, your marriage, your friendships, or in motherhood.

Your friends should make you feel like you never left high school...and have a blast while you are there.

A friend should always be there and love to be around you and know who you are.

Your friends should also represent who you are and who you love to surround yourself with...your family you get to choose.

Wild Thing

She is literally a wild thing always going a mile a minute. She is also wild about some animal prints. When I saw this zebra knit fabric, I had to have it! I had it made into these cute little double ruffles. I think ruffle pants are my favorite thing to put on her. She always says they are comfy and that is a plus.

I had to have a monogrammed matching shirt so I got these cute iron ons from The Green Goose on Etsy. Here is a link to her shop:
The iron ons are really cute and really easy to use. I just iron them on little Target tees. I think we have about seven of these. I haven't made a bow to match yet. I still need to work on that!

Aubry also had her last day of preschool for the year this week. We went to her Spring Sing on Tuesday night and she did great! We loved watching her little class sing their songs. Baseball is still in full swing and going until June 18th so we aren't done with that. She keeps asking to go to Georgia so we need to do that very soon! :) She is excited for summer and swimming. I can't blame her!

Sweet Aubry

Lately, Aubry has been singing the cutest song ever. I don't know the name but we call it "Praise the Lord". I posted a video on my Facebook in case any of you haven't seen it. She has also been praying a little prayer for her food she learned from school. She tells us all the time about how things are the way they are because Jesus made it that way. I love that she is learning so much of this stuff at school. It makes me much happier we send her there and she gets to come home and tell me these little pieces of information. She only has two days left before summer vacation...yay!!! I am so ready for sunshine and pool time!
