90 years

I love this idea from Inchmark for her Grandma's 90 birthday. She had all the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren (all 80 of them) take a page and write down a memory of her. Some did a couple to add up to 90. She then compiled a book with their thoughts and pictures. So adorable! My Mom turns 82 this year and I would love to have our family do this for her when she turns 90.

moving day

I have been so busy lately getting ready for our move which we finally completed today. Now comes the hard part getting organized in our new place. It will be especially challenging since we are moving into a doll house. I call it my little doll house because it is so tiny. On the plus side it is only a mile and a half from the beach, which I love! I am going from a giant walk in closet to a regular closet, two fridges down to one, a huge bathroom all my own to sharing one and to a kitchen that is quite a bit smaller. I do feel this is a positive step for us (no more 500 dollar electric bills a month) and I am enjoying simplifying my life by getting rid of a lot of excess stuff I have accumulated over the years. It will take some adjustments but it's worth all the money that we will be saving by living in a smaller place.

laci and danny's wedding

The beautiful couple, what a happy, happy day to see Laci marry Danny
My daughter Danielle and niece Kendra. Danielle was home for Christmas and we were so excited she was here for Laci's Wedding Day.
The pretty bridesmaids
Noah and I danced most of the night except for this one break he took with his mommy. We found out something else about Noah that night with all the pretty girls. He loves to flirt!
Liam, Laci's nephew sitting so sweetly. Caught on camera, the only moment he sat still the whole day and night. Both the boys quite the busy little bee's!
