3 loves of my life

Always a princess. Loves drama! Got a princess outfit, microphone, and snow white for Christmas! She wears dress up clothes everyday and loves to sing!


She also loves to change clothes 4 times a day. Sometimes she wears her swimming suit. She is
very much a story teller! This would be her telling a dramatic story.



Then there's little miss Hayven who is now walking all over the place. She decided she's ready for that venture! She was being goofy!

She's a very busy girl! Always climbing into and onto things!


Ginormous icicle from the front of our house!

Little Singer

Well after taping Hayven of course Jayda wanted me to tape her so here she is singing "Go Tell It On The Mountain."

"Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord." Eph 5:19

Sweet Moments

Hayven has decided it's time to take some steps. Kids have it figured out! We seem to always be rushing and little Miss Hayven is good at reminding us that we need to slow down. She's such a calm munchkin that just enjoys life! I captured her taking a few steps! Enjoy!

The moments we live for...

Adventures

Adventures at Mall of America!
Well we don't go here much, but we had some mystery tickets that was good for rides. We thought Jayda would have fun! SHE DID!! She had a blast on a few rides! Then we made a stop at Lego Land or Mego Land as Jayda called it! It was a fun day!
Jayda got to hug Sharky! She was quite excited!




She also got to get her pic taken with Pablo from the Backyardigans! He even danced with her!


Dancing with Pablo
We find it funny that she is scared of Santa but not of Sharky or Pablo!

Daily Learning

Whew! As this year comes to a close and we have approached the last month of this year it seems like life's lessons never cease! The challenge of having a 3 year old that is very strong willed and independent...the joys of teething with Hayven...and her struggle to sleep through the night has made us stronger. Better yet, it's made us realize how weak we are and how much we have to rely on Christ. As trials have been thrown our way we can only learn to lean more on Him. Be encouraged today, as we are, that God has control of each day. Live for each moment that you have today and not for the future and then you will experience the peace and joy that only Christ can offer!

Thrills with no chills

Wed Aug 26 Zach and I got a free day at Valleyfair thanks to Zach's boss! Last year only employees went. This year Each employee got the option to bring someone with them! Zach chose to bring me. How nice! Even though I don't ride the big rides he still chose to bring me!
This is us on the ferris wheel!
This is a picture of us on the train that drives around the park. It was quite a bumpy and rough ride.

This is Zach, Natalie and Phil.

This is Vicky, Sommer and I.



This is when we were in line for the scrambler.
It was such a fun day. Thanks to Kristi for keeping the girls ALL day! That was such a blessing. It was perfect weather-wise. Not hot at all! I did get burnt though. Oops!!

Garage sales

While Jayda and I were hanging out in the porch scrapbooking we heard an airplane.

Jayda: "hey I hear an airplane."
Mommy: "me too. Where do you think he is going?"
Jayda: "he's going to a garage sale."
Mommy laughed!!

Jayda: Hey I love you.
Mom: Hey I love you too.
Jayda: I love you too!
Mommy smiles!!

So I love garage sales. Jayda does too! It's my guilt-free way of shopping cause I'm very picky about how much I spend and what I buy at garage sales!! Who doesn't love good deals?! It's amazing how a 3 year old can make you cry and laugh all in one day!

Our backyard...is blooming. It's so nice to finally have some more colors instead of just green. I figured I better snap some pictures before the flowers disappear.
