Oh....the rush & madness of the Holidays!

All I can say is WOW! I can't wait for everything to settle
down so I can breathe a little easier. Couponing, Thanksgiving,
Christmas, & every day stuff has kept me very busy. I'm
looking forward to getting on the road to see my family &
having a little vacation.

Couponing, Scrapbooking, Freezer Cooking, Cleaning, Organizing & Schooling with Kayla

Wow! I can't believe it's been so long since I have made a blog post. I've been so busy with couponing, scrapbooking, freezer cooking, cleaning, organizing, & schooling with Kayla. Then trying to perfect our schedule & get everyone use to the new living environment since moving. I will later make post of my freezer cooking & my coupon deals. I'm loving staying busy and I don't feel worthless when I know I'm contributing to our budget by working 5+ hrs daily on saving us money. I'm also looking for to my Scrapbook Getaway & seeing my family again before Christmas. It will be a nice break for me but pray for my husband as he will be in charge of everything while I'm gone for a week.

Preston and Kayla's Swim Lessons

On Monday, the kids started their swim lessons. It has been going very well. They will continue for another week. Preston has move from the red wrist band to the yel low. Red- non swimmers, Yellow- swim up to so many feet then needs assistance, Green- Swim with no assistance but still need supervision. The first day it took Kayla 15 minutes to warm up to the Coach & other kids but after she was having a great time.

Third, I signed myself up for a gym membership and then later signed up for strengthening & yoga classes. Fourth, I have been walking 3x a week and I'm up to 2 miles. Overall it has been a very exciting week and this next week is going to be even better.

Happy 4th of July

It has been a great day with food, family & fireworks. It was hard celebrating without Phil & my family. After the food it was naptime then the kids got in the pool. Now its hard getting them in bed because of the fireworks going on outside.

Hunter's Dedication

We were excited to be able to see Rusty & Kristi dedicate Hunter to the Lord on Sunday, July 3rd, 2011. It was an honor to witness the decision they made to the Lord, Hunter, and themselves. He is such an adorable little boy and he will do amazing things with his life.

Rain....will it ever end?

The past couple of days it has been raining before lunch & not stopping until 6pm. Needless to say it puts a damper in our plans. The kids have been bored that it seems like they were in trouble all day. They pestered each other so much that I really hope there is NO RAIN in tomorrows forecast. I did manage to do some couponing today and I got some items for free. This makes the happy ending of the day.

Preston's 9 Years Old Today

I say, "FINALLY" my son is actually 9 yrs old. Why you ask, well I have a great answer. He had his 1st party June 4th at Jump Zone then his 2nd party June 26th at Meemaw & Peepaw's house. The day of both his parties and today he would tell me "But I'm the Birthday Boy". I am not sad that this day will soon be over and that my baby is 9 yrs old. I came to terms with it 4 weeks ago.

Our Big Move

As my husband would say "It took 11 years" and finally after all this time I can call myself a "Florida Girl". It will be a week tomorrow since the kids & I have been in the sweet little town of Mims, Florida. The kids already have tan lines. Me on the other hand has been trying to get things organized & get the kids on a schedule. It's been hard & I'm praying I can get all of it accomplished without going insane.
My "To Do List":
-Swimming Lessons for the Kids
-Sewing Lessons for ME
-Gym Membership (b/c I will get my body back after having 2 kids & 4 surgeries)
-New Drivers License
-Register Preston for Home Schooling (hoping I have the patience to achieve this goal)
-MANI/PEDI (I sooooo need a little ME time)
-Keep my Blog updated (I realized it has been over a year since I posted)
-Organize, Organize, Organize......to make my life simpler
