Almost a Year

So my sweet baby Emmie is going to be one in a month!! I can't believe how quickly the time has passed & that my little itty bitty baby is almost 12 months old! I have been searching & throwing ideas together for what theme I will be doing for her birthday & I am still torn. I was originally going to do Elephants but now I am not sure. I think I am just going to do vintage owl theme.. at least that is how I designed her invites to be. I really want to make this a super cute party since I have always wanted to do something big for one of my girls first birthdays. So I hope that I can get with it & do something I have always wanted to do.
I can't believe my dainty little baby is now this non stop moving baby!


So here goes to planning her first party! Now I just need my leg to heal so I can get around easier! I can't wait to take her one year photo's too!

Life Update

Well I can't say how long it has been nor do I care but its been amazing not having a Face to the Book. Life is peaceful & happy. I thought maybe it was just a break but I think this is a forever deal. I know for some that makes them sad but for me its what I need to be happy.

On another note. I started watching my adorable nephew Tyler this week. Its been really great. The girls & him love being together & having fun & I love having time with him. Another great thing is that it has gotten us back into routine & that is really what we were all needing. We are up at 6:30am & the girls are in bed at 8pm & I follow not far behind.

Shiloh will be starting school FINALLY!! I am so excited for her & to get her back in to school. She will be going two days a week for 8 hours a day. Once the three day program opens up she will then start that. Next school year she will start their excel program which is five days week & will prep her for kindergarden. I can't believe my baby is growing up so fast but she is so ready to get back in to the learning atmosphere & to have that type o daily structure.

Shiloh also started her swimming lessons this last Saturday & she did amazing! She is so comfortable in the water & so eager learn. Gabbie & Emma will start lessons once classes become available for them. I have a feeling Gabbie will be our little swimmer she puts her head under, floats on her back, kicks around with her floaties on & just loves being in the water as do all my girls.

I have been reading Dave Ramsey's books & following his program now for about two weeks & to date we have already paid off 4 credit cards & have over $1000 saved. I am so glad I made that investment because I really want to live a debt free life & to finally purchase a home! We have been doing a lot of looking & I think we have made the decision to buy new instead of old & remodel. The remodel sounds fun but when I think of the time & money involved I just think buying new will be much easier for us & where we are in our lives at the moment.  So hopefully the dream is accomplished sooner rather then later.

As far as Texas goes I love being here. I love having family near & our friends. I love building stronger relationships with everyone & having all the kids together. Life is really wonderful when you have family close by.

I can't believe in a little over a month Emma will be a year old. My baby is growing so fast makes me sad but at the same time happy to be near the end of baby days so we can get out & do more things. I think the theme we are going to have for her party is Elephants like I planned a long time ago.. Now this mama just has to get her butt in gear & start planning!!

Stephen is loving it here in San Antonio as well. He loves this region & all the guys he works with. He is doing amazing & really working his butt off to show everyone just how great he is! I really see a huge difference in his happiness since coming here & even though he is constantly exhausted he loves how busy the stores are here & loves every second of it.

Well that its for now. Back to being the busy mama that I am.. I have some kiddos that need to get out & Enjoy the sunshine!
