This week's happenings :)

 This week Abigail and Aidan both did yoga together! We are doing a little each day, fun indoor activity on these cooler and rainy days that we have been having. In addition, Aidan has his first tooth coming in and is mastering rolling over, climbing on things and able to get himself back to sitting all by himself. So he is not needing my help much in getting stuck, just help in staying out of EVERYTHING! :)
 At preschool this week was Fairy Tale Days. Abigail was so excited to wear her princess dress to school. She loves dressing up and wearing the dress at home too. We sure have a girly girl :)



Also this week we started making Abigail's Valentine cards for school. They will be having a tea party and get to dress up! Here are the Valentine cards we made! I sometimes amaze myself! Anyhow there were fun and very inexpensive, but I think they turned out oh so cute!!

Just a little update....

Well little man Aidan is quickly growing out of being a baby. Down to three bottles and eating three meals a day. Outgrowing clothes quickly! Exploring and moving faster and faster, yikes watch out! Everything is just going so fast!!!! Need to slow down! I am trying to savior each moment throughout the day!



I love taking photos of the two of them together, because you can tell just how much they love each other and I pray that they will always remain close! They both melt my heart!!

While Aidan is busy exploring. Abigail is learning many new things through school and church. We love to play pretend: shopping, tea parties, and house! She has some fun events coming up at school that I can't wait to share photos of:  fairytale day and a Valentine's tea party!!

When I am not busy playing with the children, family time, and the not so easy parts of being stay home mommy (discipline and housework, though there is a part of housework I like, I know I'm weird!). I am enjoying my Thirty One business, helping and participating in MOPS, and recently planning a Mom To Mom ministry for our community. A couple of us have been discussing getting this ministry going. We need your prayers and support!! Please share this if your in the Benton and surrounding areas: Tuesday, February 28 9:30am at First Missionary Baptist Church fellowship hall there will be a brief info meeting.

Aidan turned nine months old on the 4th, he is a growing boy, very adventurous!! He is fast, already into everything!! He is happy boy, loves to smile and laugh. He is definitely a people person, loves to be around people of all ages! He is starting to chat up too, the gaga's and today mmmmama!! He is still working on crawling, now doing the army crawl and trying to pull himself up on things. Today he was in bathroom drawers, not to self put everything up and lock it all down!! :)

He went in for his check up yesterday and is perfectly healthy!! We are very blessed!! He is a growing little man, he is in the 30th percentile for everything, so portioned perfectly too!! Right now he is 19.01 lbs and 27 3/4" in height!

Daddy was lucky enough to be home to go to his check-up!!

Welcome 2012

What a wonderful weekend, full of celebrating, though didn't do too much actual celebrating!! But lots to be thankful for!!
1. New Year's Eve was our seven year anniversary!! We celebrated a few days early knowing Ryan would be working. We have been so blessed and I thank God for bringing us together!!
2. My parents, brother and someday sister in law (hint, hint brother) arrived for the weekend!! We celebrated Christmas with them! Abigail had a great time with her grandparents, uncle and aunt! We did some shopping, antiquing to be exact and went to all our fav restaurants! Here are a few snapshots:

3. Last but not least, we all know a new year has started!! No new year's resolutions from this girl! I haven't done them in years. But this year I do want to focus on getting areas in our home and my life reorganized! I'm really inspired by this blog  http://iheartorganizing.blogspot.com/2011/12/2011-project-review-and-some-2012-goals.html  Also I want to focus on my heart, my family (there always my main priority & loves), and spending time doing the things I love and matter most! Praying that I will be a light to those around me and those I meet! The following really touched my heart, I received from a friend and I pray this for all of you!!

I wish you Health...
So you may enjoy each day in comfort.

I wish you the Love of friends and family...
And Peace within your heart.

I wish you the Beauty of nature...
That you may enjoy the work of God.

I wish you Wisdom to choose priorities...
For those things that really matter in life.

All good things that come to you.
