Hello 29!

Well I am officially on the last leg of my 20's and honestly am not to upset about this in the least. When I think back to my early 20's as fun and wild as the times may have been nothing can compare to life now. Yeah I may be in bed by 9 pm most nights and up by 6, My "bar clothes" have been traded for more "mommy clothes" but I love ever minute of it.
I am so blessed that god has truly given me so many AMAZING things in my life. I am so happy where my 20's have taken me. I cannot wait to hit my 30's and see what is in store :)

I was blessed to have Stephen here this year for my Birthday and as always he made it special!! We went out to my favorite pizza place and then spent the evening playing Wii with friends :) Again .. so different than I would have spent my birthday in my early 20's yet so much fun. Here are some pics from my Big day ;)

Happy birthday Princess

Two years ago our world changed when Sophia came into our lives and made everything brighter!! She was so easy on me... Slept through the night almost right away, never fussed and was always ALWAYS HAPPY.

Now at the ripe ol' age of TWO.. She is little MISS INDEPENDENT!! She knows what she wants and will try her hardest to get it. She can count to fifteen and say her abc's although not always in order and around E it gets a bit hairy but she tries :) She is the sweetest little thing in the world and god has blessed us greatly.

We were lucky enough to have some wonderful friends help us celebrate Sophia's big day. Here are some pictures from the party!!

Sophia is a HUGE NEMO fan so our friend made Sophia's cake.. It was AMAZING! Sophia LOVED IT!!

Baby Bumblebee...

Halloween isn't my favorite holiday .. probably my LEAST favorite. As a teacher I hated the day after Halloween. Kids coming down from their sugar high.. worse yet.. kids still on a sugar high because they had two twix and a whatchamacallit for breakfast... ugh..

Anyways..Bad Halloween feeling aside Sophia dressed up and we went trick or treating.She ate chocolate and we had a grand ol' time.

Stephen had full reign on Costume choosing this year since he missed her first Halloween. I must say he did a FABULOUS job.. Sophia was the cutest darn bumblebee at Nebraska furniture mart!! We went trick or treating at NFM because we were in Kansas and Kansas is COLD. So we opted for a inside trick or treating event :)
Here are some pictures of our sweet lil' bumblebee...

Much Love !

One Love

When Stephen and I got married it was small. When I say Small I mean .. Me, Stephen, my two wonderful friends and a very cute little old judge in a Furry Russian hat. We had a quick lunch after and before I knew it the recruiter took my husband away and we didn't see each other until the next morning. Not exactly the wedding of my dreams but I was marring the man I love and had people who loved and supported us by our side. Oh, did I mention we wore hoodies? Yep, I was sporting my Cyclone gear at our wedding.  Our reason for the hoodie wedding was simple. We made a promise to ourselves that we WOULD have a wedding. Everyone made it clear to us that  "everyone says that..but no one actually DOES it " well..WE DID IT!
We recently came back from Jamaica where we were married on the beach. White dress, handsome husband, cake, champagne and paradise all around us. It was amazing and I feel blessed we were able to do this for ourselves.
 I loved my husband the day I married him. I thought my heart couldn't love him more the day we had sweet Sophia. He left for Iraq and I thought my heart would break. I had never felt more love for him than I did watching him walk away. Then we spent a year apart and we found a new type of love for each other. I loved him even more. So to be blessed with the chance to tell him how I felt that special day on that beach was amazing.

Just for fun ;)

Daddy's girl

Stephen has been on leave (leave meaning  30 days of no work. A kind of  "pat on the back" for working for a year straight )

Anyway... we haven't done a whole lot mainly because Soph has been battling just about every virus out there. Meaning the first week of Stephens leave has been spent in the house recovering, getting sick again, recovering, yada yada and the cycle continues.She is on the mend now and hopefully stays that way!!

Sickness or not it has been AMAZING to watch the bond between Stephen and Sophia grow a little more each day. She loves her daddy and he loves his little princess.

All of our children :)

Happy Family

Finally we kind of have some fall weather

She had the flu.. Note to self.. toddlers do not get the concept of a "puke bowl"

Our little beauty

Daddy came home with this cool little princess car for his little princess...

He is already working on making her a die hard chiefs fan..

Much love!
