Random Happenings of a Happy Family






So, I know I facebooked a status that said something like, I'm not going to blog anymore, but I don't know, I miss writing. I wrote a LONG journal entry on our way back from Utah this week and realized there is something really satisfying about posting my feelings/frustrations/conundrums/elations etc. online. Sometimes I tend to be a rather private person, but I feel like blogs are just fun to do sometimes..not all the time or anything. I mean, let's face it, I need to have a life and more importantly, my free time. I always enjoyed writing papers in school(ok not always, but in college, I enjoyed it!) and thus, enjoy blogging about my life. Lately, things have been pretty awesome. Much to my shock and delight, the girls have become much more manageable lately. Just a few minutes ago, I was able to put away the dishes while the girls played together. I kept expecting to hear Keira come crying to me about Avery assaulting her in some manner. But no mommy interventions needed for those 10 minutes or so. Hooray! A small voice in the back of my head is whispering, "Maybe this means you are ready for a third.." But anytime that idea surfaces, I find myself feeling sick to my stomach. Is that rude or what? I feel terrible for thinking that. I do want another child at some point, I think, but the exhausted part of me keeps screaming "NO!" I guess I figure that when the time is right I wont get that sick feeling anymore when I think about pregnancy and having another little bundle. We shall see. I do feel so incredibly blessed to have two wonderful and adorable little girls. They are my oxygen I can't live without.

Random happenings from our lives are posted for your enjoyment. I couldn't resist posting that newborn pic of Keira. She was so small then, I can't believe it. Another picture of Avery and Brian at Zuma Beach was from a couple weeks ago. We had a fun time visiting the Powells down in Thousand Oaks and soaked in the sun and enjoyed our beach time immensely. Another pic of Avery with her boyfriend Beckett was taken at Dodger stadium on Mormon night. Those 2 kiddos are just way too cute. And I think the rest are just random photos I thought were worth posting. Life is good. Peace out.

Heather, Hey it's great to read your post. I agree that writing is good for the soul, wish I could do more of it, but life just isn't that giving sometimes. Great pictures. I hope you still keep blogging once in while cuz that's the main way I keep in touch. Later.

I think you are a wonderful mother. Your kids are happy and that is huge, and so is your husband.
