{Happy March}

February came and went like a rocket ship! What in the world! This wonderfully little site has been really neglected!

Like I said before, life happens and I needed to just be in the moment!

Boy do I have some catching up to do! Hopefully, this month will be the month. :)

For now, here are some recent pictures:

photo 1 photo 2 photo 3 photo 4 photo 5 photo 1 photo 2 photo 3 photo 4 photo 5 photo 1 photo 2 photo 3Isabel has done some growing these past two months, I would say she has gotten at least an inch taller if not more! She is talking up a storm and ¬†sometimes I have to decipher what she says! She is little Miss Independent but is so loving at the same time! One of my favorite thing she says is “uv you, momma! uv you, daddee!” So, sweet!

This winter has been bitterly cold with lots of snow, melting snow, ice, and sickness. We have spent many days on end not leaving the house. We are getting more and more ready for spring and summer when we can be outside 90% of the day!

In Him,

Emma

{And I’m back}

Sometimes life just says slow down and take a break from lots of things. And this happened this past month. We have had many different sicknesses, plus other computer problems, and a defiant one who refuses to potty train. Therefore, I haven’t been here lately. Sorry.

And I’m back :)

I am back to documenting our life as best as I can.
I am back from being sick myself.
Although my computer is still not working, I am back here to share our lives with you.

Be prepared for some late posts like Christmas!

So, I leave you with this

Even though there is snow on the ground, when Great Grandma sends you money to go get Ice cream, you do it! Yummy!

{Holiday Update & PICTURES}

The end of November and all of December seems to be our busiest time of year.

First, Jordan and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary on November 27! We have wonderful family who watched the Bel and we had a night to ourselves at a special restaurant and movie!

20131214-062809.jpg
Happy 3 years to that stud!

Thanksgiving was the next day. We spent the end of the week at the Bradley’s where the whole Bradley clan was there for the holiday! We wanted to spend as much time with them as possible especially the part of the Bradley clan that doesn’t live close by!

20131214-063538.jpg
Aren’t we good looking?!? :)

As you read before, we celebrated Isabel Anne’s birthday on December 7 only a week after Thanksgiving! We had a little Birthday Bash for her with family who came to celebrate with us! She is a true blessing to us!

20131214-070153.jpg
Happiest of birthdays to Isabel!

20131214-063955.jpg
This was the party invite! I forgot to share earlier!

Then, my parents stayed around here enjoying the snow for a few more days! So glad almost all of our families were here to celebrate!

20131214-064132.jpg
Isabel is 2!

On December 12, we celebrated my 27th birthday! I was overwhelmed with love from family and friends! My husband surprised me with a Kelly Moore Bag which is a purse I have been wanting for years! I was in complete shock!

20131214-065153.jpg
Overwhelmed with love!

Life will not slow down from here, just a little over a week till Christmas where we will spend here at our house and then off to visit Louisiana till after New Year! We are excited :)

Pictures from the last couple weeks:

We have been very blessed this year! One of the blessing is this table that I can serve other with!

{Isabel is 2}

Last Saturday was a big day for us all. Isabel turned 2.

2! Can you believe it. Little Miss is 2 and my mind just turns back to the day she was born and we are holding this beautiful little girl in our arms. Just yesterday it seems she was 1 and still not able to walk. Now, Isabel is 2!

On her birthday (Dec. 7), we had family and practically family friends over for a little birthday bash!

We all gathered around the table singing ‘Happy Birthday’ and she was very unsure of what was happening!

IMG_3673

She doesn’t blow hard enough to put the flame out, but with a little help from her momma, we did it!

IMG_3674

This is what she thought of the cupcake at first…
IMG_3678

With a little help from her BFF…

IMG_3686

He explained what to do and then…

IMG_3684

Showed her!

IMG_3687

Good thing he was there! :) She enjoyed the cupcake!

And then she got to open her gifts! Which she loved them all!!

I caught Jordan reading Isabel her bedtime story. Sweetness!

20131122-061949.jpg
The beginnings of something wonderful!

Lots of crafting and making happening here this weekend! Bring it on! Along with some snow :)

Which in that case means more warm drinks!

Enjoy!

{Pumpkin Patch}

A couple of weeks ago, the Bel and I went with our good friends to the Pumpkin Patch at Center Grove Apple Orchard! There is more than just apples and pumpkins at this orchard! So much more, we could spend days there!

It was a GREAT morning! Full of lots to see and we picked one big pumpkin and 3 small ones! As well as enjoying a homemade Apple Cider Doughnut!

Can’t wait for next year!!
