Catching Up

Since I have been absent for so long, I am going to do a quick catch-up post that will be mostly the photos I have been meaning to share.  Hopefully after this I can get back to a regular blogging schedule.


Mia found the wipes!!

Just like her sister....



 This girl.  Ha!


My sweet mama came to help us pack for Mother's Day!  Love you, Mom!!

My sweet, sweet family!  I can't beelieve everyone is looking and making a decent face!!


This is the rough life, you know??  Lounging on the swing with Mimi's phone ;)

There's No Place Like Home

I have been such a blog-slacker lately!  I am sorry for the lack of posts, but as usual, life has just been c-r-a-z-y!! 

As most of you know, we are in the process of a big move.  Yep!  That's right, we're moving!!

Where??  Well, that's the best part...  We. are. HOME!!

We really just felt like we were depriving our kids of something very special.  Something that we had as kids.  Something that we maybe took for granted before we left.  We decided that enough was enough. We missed our family, we missed our friends, we missed our home.

Don't get me wrong, we had a great time while we were away.  We met some fantastic people who made a serious impact on our lives.  We are very grateful for their friendship, and for what they have meant to our family.

But, like Dorothy said, "There's no place like home."  And, boy, was she right!

The Graduate...Part Two

It's that time of year again...recitals, school awards ceremonies, closing ceremonies at the ball fields.....and........


That's right, folks! Austyn-Baby gradulated from pre-k!! Do you know what that means?? Well, I'll tell you what it means. It means we now have two school-aged kids!

She did such a great job at the ceremony!

She was given the responsibility of opening the ceremony with by reciting The Lord's Prayer.  She did beautifully!

You can listen to her here.

It was even more special because that is the same role Gannon had in last year's graduation ceremony.  I am so proud of both of these kiddos!

*This was Gannon at his graduation last year.*

Here are a few photos and videos from the ceremony.

Here, Austyn is introducing herself to the audience.  You can listen here.

Here are the kids performing "Miss J."

There is something that is just not right about seeing this little girl in a cap and gown!  My, how she has grown :)

She is so proud of herself!  That little foot stayed in the air the whole time I was taking her picture!  Priss-Pot!

Mimi came to watch her "gradulate!"  It's a good thing she did, because that freed our hands to video and take pictures!

Oh, Gannon ;)

Here is the gradulate displaying her pre-k portfolio.

Mrs. Monika has been so great to us the last three years!  I am really sad Mia won't get the chance to know her. 

The obligatory family photo :)

My sweet girl!!

Here are a couple of side-by-sides of last year and this year.  I am really frustrated that I can't make them bigger.  If you are having trouble seeing them, go to the actual blog and click on the photos to enlarge them.
