2014....A new Year!

I just love a new year. I always loved the first day of school. Fresh tablets of paper, new pencils, new clothes, and especially a new start. Part of my new year includes blogging more. I wouldn't have a clue on how many people actually read it... or care! :) But, it's my way of journaling & I enjoy looking back on the memories. I plan on updating on 2013 in the next few weeks. This year is going to be so much fun for us. The kids are getting older and able to enjoy more activities together and we have some things already planned... more on that later.
The kids are getting older and able to enjoy more activities together and we have some things already planned... more on that later. Davis had his first basketball of the season today. He had so much fun! He said he enjoyed this team more than any basketball team he's ever been on. I'm so happy for him! His team name is the Celtics. Eliza is taking tap & ballet and absolutely loves it! It's all she talks about & is sad on days it's not in session. Her classes are on Tuesday after pre-school. Molly is trying to figure out who she is. She's the sweetest little girl ever, but also hateful as can be! For Christmas, Santa brought her a toy monkey that she had asked for. It's her new best friend.

How long has it been?

I know it's been awhile. Way to long actually! So, what's going on with the fab 5? Here's the short version: Davis started the 3rd grade this fall, is finishing up his 1st year of real tackle football, and is almost as tall as me! Eliza started preschool this fall, played her 1st organized sport in the spring. It was soccer & she LOVED, I mean LOVED it! Molly is still Momma's baby! She at first was upset to drop Eliza off at preschool, but now I think she's enjoying the mommy time! We go to Target, have breakfast with friends, or just come home and snuggle! There it is... but as we all know that really isn't all! There's always more behind the short greetings and quick catch ups! Stay tuned & you'll hear plenty more.

I came across the video a few weeks back & can't get it out of my head! Even Eliza has been singing the "church song". I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Valentine's Day

Today is Valentine's Day. I just love Valentine's Day. I love all the red & pink. I love the memories of exchanging cards at school. I love love!
Davis wrote me/told me a poem today. It goes like this:

I love Mommy.
Mommy is so pretty.
She has a lot of babies!

I don't even know how to respond to that one! LOL I asked Eliza if she'd like to tell me a poem. She just kept saying "yes". So, I asked her if she loved Mommy. She (of course) said "yes". I said "What do you like best about Mommy?" She said.... wait for it..... "Mommy's cookin'" Oh how I love these kids!
I know what Molly would say is her favorite thing, but it may not be appropriate for a family blog! BAHAHAHA

Master Davis

My little man is now a red belt! I am so proud of him. He's being taking tae kwon do lessons for close to 2 years now & is progressing very well. He still enjoys it even though there are weeks he doesn't want to go. But, I think that's normal given his age.
Eliza runs around trying to wear his gear, his belts, & yelling "HI YAY" while she kicks! LOL It won't be long till we have another black belt in training in our home.
I have been looking for a display to hang all his belts up in his room. If anyone knows where I can get one, please let me know!

My 6 month old

Today we had Molly's 6 month pictures made. Christi Arnette came out to our house & did a in home photo shoot. WHY have I never did this before? It was amazing! Molly took a great morning nap & got up just after Christi arrived. She was in the best of moods & ready to be a model.
It was so easy & so much fun. I would recommend this to anyone with kids. Here's a sneak peak of today's shoot. This turned out so great I can't wait to see the rest of them.

Today we took a break in our day & headed to Chick-Fil-A for some lunch & playtime.
While we were enjoying our chickens as Eliza calls them, I noticed a pretty little blonde girl wearing glasses. As the mother got up to go in the play area I asked how old she was when she got her glasses. I can't help but feel a connection to another parent who has a little one wearing glasses.
We chatted for a bit & then the mother said to me "Her glasses will become her identity & that is just who she is.". I can't shake that comment. I don't want her glasses to become her identity. They are just plastic, wires, & screws.
I want her identity to be within her.
What is in her heart.
Most importantly, who she serves. I want her to find her identity in things that can't be touched or held.
The Webster's dictionary defines identity as: condition or character as to who a person or thing is.
Her glasses are not who she is. They are what she wears to see better.

Let me tell you who she is.
She's the funniest little girl I've met. Just ask her! :)
She has the sweetest heart I've seen on a 2 year old.
She's a little Momma. Always wanting to take care of others.
She's learning about the one we serve.
I'm shocked everyday at how smart she is. She is picking up things so quickly.

Eliza happens to wear glasses, but glasses don't wear her!
