Amalia's 5th Birthday!

I cannot rave enough how much happiness and sass she has brought into our lives!
Amalia is brilliant and keeps us on our toes at all time, you can't put anything past her!
She loves school and is learning to read quite well.
She is incredibly independent and can hold her own with her two big brothers.
She is always quick to say "I'm sorry", and is constantly professing her love for each one of us individually.
She always likes to be the one to say prayers at dinner time, and for almost 2 years she starts her prayer, 'Thank you that Grandpa feels better."
There is no shortness of love and gratitude in our how, and on her birthday we are particularly thankful for our 5 years spent with Amalia.

As her main gift I got her an outfit to match Willa, her Wellie Wisher.
As a special surprise I dropped off an outfit to math Ashlyn, for her best friends Kinleigh.
The surprise went over very well, I will never forget the look on her face when she realized!
Over all he…

Before Her Birthday

Kaiden is in training to become a camp counselor and his second training weekend unfortunately fell on Amalia's birthday.
He really wanted to be a part of her celebrations so he helped to decorate the dining room and pick 2 gifts for her to open with the Friday morning before her birthday.
We also got her a donut and a candle so he could sing Happy Birthday to her, they were both so sweet!
And I am really proud of Kaiden for wanting to be a counselor, I know without a doubt he will be a wonderful leader!

Ensanada, Mexico

This is only the second time since being married we have taken a trip without the kids.
As I mentioned in a previous blog we were waiting for this trip because it was so close to my birthday, it was short but really fun!

I found this amazingly wonderful babysitter, I love love LOVE her!! The kids had just as good a time as we did, until of course Amalia and I started missing each other, we can't go more than 3 days without needing  our snuggles.

We met up with our team, they are awesome! Our leaders have worked so hard and won their place on this cruise, it is really nice to be surrounded by like minded, hard working people with good integrity and morals.  A lot of fun hanging out with them, and even more fun having lots of alone time with John.

Girls Day out

We love spending time with our friends that we have missed so much since we moved!
I always say a friendship isn't real until it is not convenient anymore and you still make the time for each other.
Kinleigh and Amalia have been best friends since they both just turned one and I absolutely love her mom, Rhonda, who has become such a great friend of mine.
We got the girls together for a fun day out, and no rain was going to stop us from enjoying our time!
From ice cream to dinner, (I know, we got it backwards) we had a wonderful afternoon.
I wish this would let me post videos from my phone because I got such a cute video go Kinleigh playing baby and Amalia playing Mummy and feeding her at dinner!

Georgia Canyons

Since the kids are in a new county they didn't get the winter break, and we normally take that week to do my birthday trip.
Since I have been wanting to hike the canyons I figure we could do the canyons, and save our Mexico trip for another date.
It was a long drive out in the middle of nowhere Georgia but it was absolutely worth it!
I had never seen anything like it, there was a constant stream of water like a very low non existent river, it added such a peaceful energy, it was so calming and beautiful.

Of course I had cut my cake with my Daddy, it was so special to be able to spend my birthday with him.
