End of the Year Gymnastics Show 2017

Gymnastics ended last week for the year and they celebrated with class olympics. It was so much fun seeing how much our girls have improved throughout the year. We are so proud of all they have accomplished.

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July

 

I truly hope you are enjoying your day with family and friends; that is what life is all about. In your midst of celebrations try to remember why we are free and those that have helped and continue to protect us day in and day out. It’s so easy to forget to take a minute and remember what this day is really about. I send my love to all of you.

We have been doing our fair share of enjoying all the festivities. We had a wonderful time watching the fireworks with Mimi and Papa. This year was the best year yet; our girls are at amazing ages. It really is easy taking our girls anywhere. I am in love with the stage our family is in right now. If I could freeze time I would right at this very moment.

Birthday Celebrations, Father’s Day, and More

I can’t believe June has come to an end, where is our summer going?

We have been loving our relaxing mornings at home and afternoons at the pool. I don’t want these days to end anytime soon. Good thing we don’t have to worry about that for a couple more months.

The birthday celebrations continue….

Isabella loved having her birthday party at the bowling alley with all her friends. We loved celebrating our Isabella.

I made my first, but certainly not last “Nana” cake (for my mother-in-law’s birthday) and it was amazing, it was such a wonderful success. I can’t wait to continuing practicing, but I’m not sure my macros can take it. ­čÖé

We had such a wonderful time celebrating Gram (Steve’s mom). She always hosts such wonderful birthday celebrations for everyone else and we wanted to do the same for her. Gram deserves it. We are grateful for all she does for us and our girls. Thank you for always being so generous and kind. We love you and we truly enjoyed our time together.

I am still in shock that Sophia turned 8 years old this past Friday. Seriously, where has the time gone. I am not ready for her to grow up. She is such an amazing little girl; I don’t want to let her go into this world. She is smart, kind, caring, loving, and everything else in between. She is also my questioner, debater, over achiever and thinker. She is way beyond her years. I love our night time cuddles together. We have such wonderful deep conversations about life and the world. She makes me a better person. She pushes me in ways I never thought I could be pushes. She pushed me to be better, so better, live better. She is more then we could have ever wished for in a daughter. She is the absolute best big sister of 3 little sisters. She loves taking care of everyone. We love our Sophia more then words can say. I am beyond thankful to God for giving us she a kind hearted little girl.

The girls had their first Mimi and Papa sleepover of the summer; I’m sure there will be more to come.

What would a sleepover be without ice cream and a few carnival rides?

We can’t talk about June without talking about Father’s Day. What can I say my girls are blessed to have Steve as their Daddy. He works incredibly hard for all of us to have this wonderful life. He is the best friend, hubby and dad I could have ever asked for in my life. We love you very much.

Oh my dad, he couldn’t be any better of a man, father, papa, husband and friend. He makes us all want to be better, live better. He is the most generous giving man you will ever meet. He would give his family the world if he could and even though he can’t, he will continue to try day in and day out. My girls are beyond blessed to have him as their papa. I am so glad they can learn about love, life, and family from from an amazing man.

Tucked in with love by their papa…

Life Lately….

I know I have been quite absent from the blog lately, but life has just gotten in the way. I can’t believe how busy things have been, actually I can. Between the end of the school year and four birthdays, life is busy this time of year.

We had our first family swim of the year memorial day weekend and it was perfect. This year is going to be the easiest year yet; when it comes to the pool.

June is always crazy for us not only with birthdays, but end of year activities. Sophia and Isabella had a blast at field. I love seeing their happy faces.

While Sophia and Isabella were finishing up their last few days of school McKayla, McKenzie and I were running the last of our errands just the three of us. Errands would look quite a bit different once school was out.

I have truly enjoyed this year. I have loved┬ámy time with these two silly girls. I can’t believe how much life is going to change next year. I am truly not ready of them to start preschool in the fall. I am really going to miss our days together. I will be one sad Mama. ┬áMy babies our growing up and I am not happy about it.

Our Isabella turned 6 mid June. I am still in shock that she was born 6 years ago. I just can’t fathom where these years have gone. Isabella has truly made me a better person. She shows me each and everyday what living is all about. It’s about being happy, loving life and going with the flow. Isabella lives her life in her own world and I love it. She is able to let things go easily, she doesn’t’ hold grudges and chooses happiness almost 100% of the time. She is an amazing little girl and I am beyond blessed to be her mom.

Sophia and Isabella had their┬álast day of kindergarten and 2nd grade; it was so bittersweet. I can’t believe how grown up our girls are become, yet still so young.

Thank you for all the kind and caring messages. I have received countless messages about how my family and I were doing (since I have been so absent). I am truly touched to know how much all of you care about my family and me. Thank you.

I still have so much more to share with you, but it will have to wait for another day. I promise I will post again soon. We are quickly settling into our new routine, so I will be able blog more regularly once again. Thank you for being so understanding.
