Liza is almost 1 year old, and today she officially said "daddy". Not dada, but daddy, clear as day. I cannot believe how fast she is growing.

So beautiful and such a sweetie.

Cold weather food is awesome. This was an amazing salad, and from scratch beef stew and fried chicken. I love cooking! Although coming up with ideas is difficult some days.

 Girls are just chilling.

My big girl is starting to steal my clothes, its obvi that I'm a super cool mama.

I'm baaaccck

Mikayla is 9 years old. Where does the time go? We celebrated by having 12 of her girlfriends sleepover, it was quite the adventure. For her birthday day we went to 16 handles, and for breakfast she had birthday waffles. What a sweet girl she is turning out to be, she loves her sister and brother sooo much!

Petey is loving his school. He goes two days a week plus Fridays with the 4 year Olds. He gets along with them so well. Petey is so funny... Todaywe baked cookies and after he took his first bite he said, "you've really outdone your self mom". Today as well... I hear the fridge closing... Petey, what are you doing in the fridge? P says, "getting whip cream". I ask, "why are you getting whip cream?" He responds "for my spoon". Can't put anything past him!

Liza is 10.5 months and so happy. She's not fond of eggs but loves cheese! She weighs in at 20.10 lbs, her favorite thing to do is climb in and out of her radio flyer wagon. 

Right now we are smack in the middle of remodeling our bathroom, kitchen and painting the house. It sure is coming along, and we absolutely love the fact that it's ours!

I keep busy with the three kids and am getting back into the swing of things. I can't find the time to run still, but I am starting to eat healthier and get back into cooking and exploring with our meals. 

I cannot believe I'm going to be 32 soon, how fast time flies. I can vividly remember my life at Mikaylas age-living in Delmar, my friends, 4th grade... It is so bitter sweet. Sometimes I wish I could go back, or at least just stop the clock from ticking away so darn fast. some days I just wish I could be a kid again, don't you? I love where I am in my life, but some days I wish I could go back to that security. I loved my childhood and the family I grew up in and some days I wish I could spend it how we used to- always taken for granted. All I can do now is be the best mom I can be to my children and hope one day they can see me just how I see my mom now. I wish nothing but the best for my three little loves- I want God to protectt them throughout their journey and I can only hope they make nothing but good choices. Love you all so much.
