We are back from Disney. What a great family vacation. It was awesome. We had such a great time we are already thinking about when we are going back. The weather was amazing and other than it being more crowded than we had hoped it couldn't have been better...oh wait maybe it could've been a little longer. (o: I'll try to post more pics soon.

I became a mommy...something I dreamed of and thought may never happen. Today I feel so blessed that I have become a mommy to four wonderful little girls. I am also in shock at how fast time goes. My first born is 11! Say What?! In two years I'll have a teenager. UH-OH, I can't believe it. I couldn't be more proud of my Kenna Bear who by the way will probably not allow me to call her that much longer. She is definitely becoming a young lady but she will always be my baby! I never realized how much I was capable of loving until I had my children. It is the best gift God has blessed me with. I feel honored to be my girls mommy and I look forward to watching them grow. I use to be sad that my girls were growing so fast but now I am truly looking forward to seeing them turn into young ladies. Don't get me wrong if I could stop time I would but it's neat to think of all the fun stages we have to come and the few not so fun times. Hey by the time Rae and Ri are teenagers I should have it down. Happy Birthday Kenna Bear...Mommy and Daddy love you so much!!
*We loaned our camera to a friend but have no fear we pulled out the old one and I got a few snapshots. I'll try to post them tomorrow.

i know i've been mia sorry about that things have just been kinda busy and the blog suffered. first i need to say happy belated birthday to my mom her birthday was yesterday...i luv u so much ma i hope you had a great day! now on to the girls. we are starting to hit some major milestones. reagan and riley haven't been doing the greatest with the potty training but it's day to day. they don't quite get it yet but they will and i'm not stressing. okay that's not a milestone but here are a few. rae is little ms. independent her most recent show of independence is how she will get herself dressed for the day. i'm not talking about the simply pulling her pants up i'm talking she will wander off and the next thing i know she has taken off her jammies and put on clothes...shirt, pants, shoes, coat and all. silly little girl...she is always ready to go. riley doesn't do this at least not yet...haha. they have finally decided it's not the worst thing in the world to have to get their teeth brushed josh and i are extremely excited about this one. they are strong and it was an all out battle. they are starting to try drinking out of big cups...this we will take slow whether they want to or not. ;) which leaves me to the next thing...their vocabulary. they are full blown talkers. they carry on conversations just ask gramma rita as they insist on calling her everyday! oh and another thing they seemed to have finally gotten past is the biting. this is huge

I was lucky enough to be one of the first to post on Loren's blog over @ The Dressler Family Blog "Pay It Forward" post. Thank you so much Loren!! I am very excited to play along!!
Here is how it works:
The main focus is doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and pay it forward. I will send a small, fun gift to the first 3 bloggers who post a comment on this entry. In turn, those three will post this information and pick 3 people they want to send something to and then the game will continue!! If you are interested in participating, be one of the first 3 bloggers to leave a comment!! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found, anything you want!! Just a gift that will make the person's day!! You have to promise that you will then post about this on your blog, link back to me, and then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog.
So get to it!! If you are one of the first 3 people to comment on this post, please send your name and address to my email! firstname.lastname@example.org

Yep, that's me. I'm really sorry...I don't know what's wrong with me I just don't have it in me lately to blog. Maybe it's the busy-ness of the holidays I'm not sure but I'm gonna try to work myself out of it. We all go through it, right?! Riley is so sick right now poor little baby. Rae is learning how to throw major temper tantrums and in the meantime their vocabulary is growing off the charts. They are little people who just talk up a storm. They LOVE to call their gramma Rita and will pick up the phone and ask..."i call ma?" that's what they call her. We have a police officer statue that sits on our end table next to our couch. I put a random (by that I mean I found it laying on the floor) ponytail holder with a bow on it that belongs to one of the many baby dolls in our house and Riley walked up to it the other day and said "daddy have a bow!" They call it daddy because it's a policeman how cute. We never called it that they came up with it all on their own. Anyhow, I received another award ...I know I can't believe it either especially with how bad of a blogger I've been lately. So I will try to post about that within the next couple of days and I am also participating in a very cool pay it forward thing. Loren is so awesome I found it on her blog and I can't wait to do it myself. I. love. the. elf. We so didn't have one and I cannot wait to start this new tradition with my girls. So anyhow other than trying to find the perfect gifts there has just been a lot of the usual running around like crazy going on here. I promise I will try to do better. Oh and as soon as I get my lights working again on our Christmas tree I'll post some pictures. I hope you are all doing well and I promise to post soon. Please keep an eye out for the pay it forward...you won't want to miss this one! :)
