Avie & "Unc Eric"

So most of you know that my Brother is a pilot for U.S. Customs. Well Tuesday, May 19th, was career day at our Alma Mater, Mt.Carmel High School (and yes also the fine school that gave us Adam Lambert of American Idol). Well, Derrick's unit was asked to fly down to the school and land on the baseball field as part of career day and talk with the students. So Adyson and Avery went with Nonna & Papa to see Uncle Derrick fly in and land. Something we really thought they would enjoy since they are always getting excited when "hecoptors" fly over the house. Well, Avie started crying and yelling for mommy because of the wind and noice, as you can imagaine, and Adyson being the princess she is, was a bit scared as well. Avie finally came around and then got excited to see the "hecoptor" and below is the only picture that was captured before she stiffened her body enough to get down! What an awesome day and a great memory to have!

I've been Slacking!

Okay, so I know it's been like, forever, since I've written or posted anything to my blog! What can I job is getting in the way of my personal life! In all seriousness I just haven't had much free, husband, children, etc. keep me rather busy. Avery has been a handful lately, not wanting to sleep through the night, so needless to say, I don't sleep through the night. I think she's getting better, but she's still sleeping on the floor in our room. Sarah is home full time now as her dad has gone back to Iraq. We usually have a week on and a week off, so it's been an adjustment...a good one though. Adyson is mellow yellow as usual, but a bit more whiney these days. We're nipping that in the bud quickly! We're so excited she's starting kindergarten this year...but hard to believe our Adyree is already going to be 5!! Honestly, I don't know where the time goes. I feel like I'm walking around in a daze half the time and the days start blending into each other.

We've had a good year so far and hoping that the rest of the year is just as good if not better! Cord and the girls gave me a fabulous Mother's Day which started off with homemade coffee cake in the morning, some beautiful artwork made by the girls, some quiet time for myself, topped off with a BBQ with our parents and my brother and his family! I couldn't have asked for anything more. My goal is to definitely start blogging more and keeping you all up to date on our life. I really do have so much to share...just have to find the time to share it!
