I just realized today that I don't thank my mom often enough for all the advice she has given me through my life and especially since I became a wife and mother 4yrs ago. She has been there every time I needed her and now I know what she meant when she would tell me growing up that one day my kids would do the same thing to me that I did to her. She was even here at the last minute when I gave birth to my son Alex. She knew I would not have called had I not needed her. I will be forever grateful for that time she spent here helping me with everything. So since I do not say it enough, I do thank you Mom for all you have done and still do for me everyday. Because of your example, I have become a better person and my kids have the best grandma!! We love you and miss you bunches!! See ya soon we hope!!!

Can I just say that Monday is not favorite day of the week??? However, I did have a good weekend! On Friday night, our friends Charm and Mark came over with their niece Lexi (Alex's girlfriend!) and had dinner with us. We always have a good time with them and consider them a part of our family. The kids had fun and the little ones played and played and even had Auntie Charm on the floor laughing her katooshi (her word!!) off!! She especially has been a lifesaver in our lives!! We also made a baby carriage out of fruit for our dear friend Suesan for her suprise baby shower on Saturday morning bright and early at 830a!! The shower was great fun and Suesan was suprised! GO DANIEL for not spilling the beans!!! Charm and I (under the threat of being hunted down! lol) went to have my foot x-rayed because I hit a toe on my left foot on my hardwood bed frame a week ago and it still hurts. Turns out it was broke so not much they could do but I did get good pain pills!! We also had Community Group and then came home and crashed. Sunday was the usual church, meeting after church for Heather's church camp trip. We brought Andrew (Daniel and Suesan's son oldest son) to play with Austan and we did swimming with them and Charm and Lexi. The little ones are turning into fish and it is so fun to watch. We finished the night with a cookout with Charm and family and Daniel and Suesan and family. It was too fun. We need to do it more often!! Well I am off for now but will hopefully post pics tomorrow if I have time!! Night!

Hi all....I tried to do this blog thing once before and got sidetracked with life as we all do, especially with families and kids. But alot of my friends are doing it so I figured I could too. I also wanted a way to keep our families updated on the craziness that is our lives here in Katy, TX. We have been here almost 4yrs now and have finally started to feel like we are home! We have an awesome neighboorhood to live in and great neighbors!! We have also found a church home at Community of Faith in Cypress, TX. Scott and I are both very involved in various aspects of our church so we are there quite a bit. However, the friends we have made there have become our second family and we love them all. Our kids are in great schools and my husband Scott has an awesome job so I am able to stay home and watch my little boy Alex grow up which I have always wanted to do. I think this blog idea will be a great way to talk about whatever is going on and show off our family some!! Hope you enjoy reading it. I have to run to deal with the kids. Oh joy, summer break!!!! I will write more soon!! Keep watching!!!
