Where has the time gone??

I know it's been a long time since I have updated the blog. Life has been so hectic and a little out of whack lately. In the midst of all the transitions that Otis and I have been going through, I have tried to maintain some normalcy and to remember to "Enjoy the Journey". It is not always easy but when I sit back and look at the past few months I realize one thing... and that is how much I am blessed with a wonderful family and great friends who are always there to love and support my along the way! I hope you all know how much I love and appreciate your love and friendship! thank You!!! Enjoy the last 5 months of our life!

National Anthem

Briana's Choir group sang the National Anthem at "relay for life" at Apache Junction High School. they did a great job and sang their parts beautifully! Great Job Bri!


Braiden has been doing wrestling for a couple months now. It has been so good for him to learn a new sport and to try something that is done individually. It is definitely a challenge for him but he loves a good challenge and he loves to compete in anything having to do with sports.

How cute in his singlet! I call it a onsie he he!
Checking out the competition!

I love this picture! they are both in the air! It's hard to watch! Briana and I were in the stands squeezing each others arms off! It's very intense for such little guys!

Easter Weekend!!

It was a fun Easter weekend with my Husband and my kids. It started off Saturday morning decorating eggs! This is always fun!

Brooke wanted to show us an experiment that she did at school. Does a raw egg float in salt water? The answer is..... Yes it does!
I woke up Easter morning (and my Birthday) to a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a Delicious breakfast, made by the kids and Otis. It was so nice, they really made me feel special on my Birthday! Along with the numerous call from friends and family! Thanks guys! I feel so loved!

My cute kids, in their Easter outfits! I actually got Braiden to wear a pink tie! Yeh! they match!
