January 2016.  Life is wonderful.  I have two beautiful children, a gorgeous granddaughter, a supportive husband and great friends and family.  I am blessed.  Thank you, God, for allowing me to enjoy such joy.

End of 2015~

The last day of 2015.  This has been QUITE the year.  Haley got married, Ira started kindergarten, Jeremy began new job at a school district where Ira goes so he is literally next door to him and we are preparing our house to sale so we can move closer to Jeremy's new job.  I count several blessings there. 

I pray every night for my family to be whole again.  I hope this happens very early in 2016.

Haley and Ira - a baby brother?

It seems that 2014 is going to be an exciting year for us.

Thank you, God, for being a presence in the middle of the night when sadness creeps in.  I have always known it was not for me to know everything or understand it all.  There is solace in knowing that I just have to have faith and believe in You. 

Thank you for never giving up on me.  Thank you for blessing me 20 times over with a wonderful family and friends who are my support system.  Thank you for hearing my prayers from my heart many times when I can't even pray the words.

I love You.

Brenna, I miss you in our lives

Ira's first winter - love him in Janie & Jack

Cootie PaTootie!

Brenna, it has been over a year now since our "tiff" and via blocked Facebook friends and you moving, you have deleted me from your life. 

I don't even care anymore to hash back and forth the reasons why.....They seem ridiculous now and I would hope they do to you as well. 

We've always been there for each other and I've looked to you for wisdom and comfort many times.  I know you kept me alive the night Mom died. 

I miss you.  I miss talking to you.  I miss seeing what kind of handbag you were buying next and what watch or tennis shoes Will would be buying next. 

My kiddos are growing up.  I know you talk a little to Haley.  She is such a good mommy.  And looking at Aubriana is like looking at Haley almost 20 years ago. 

Ira is THE most handsome little guy I've ever seen.  He is such a good boy.  And smart as a whip!  He has been a God send in all sense of the word. 

I miss not knowing what is going on in your life.  I think about your daily.  I love you~

Your Twin~

Aubriana's arrival and Ira's 2nd Birthday!

Brother and sister "bumping fists"
BEST FRIEND in the world!

Ira enjoyed his 2nd birthday by having an indoor carnival (fighting over 100 degree heat, the "indoor" part was important). :)  He loved his cake topped by a hot air balloon (his favorite), cupcakes in a ferris wheel and just for Ira, Rice Crispies.  He was a little overwhelmed by all the family and friends but some extra time outside with De helped him alot. 

Mommy must learn to time his parties better with his naps.  LOL

July brought a wonderful addition to the family.  Aubriana Pearl was born July 10th and has stolen the hearts of all of us.  At 6 weeks now, she is just over 9 pounds, in the 90th percentile of length, 50th percentile of weight and is so beautiful.  It is like looking at Haley almost 20 years ago.

Handsome Gabriel!  We will be celebrating his 1st birthday in October. 

Kale and Alynn - the bestest of friends.

Spring has Sprung

It has been a very busy past 4 weeks.  Wow!  On Valentine's evening, I accepted an offer for a consulting job.  I've been working there ever since and have now been offered the perm position.  It's in HR, I am very excited and feel this is the right move for me (professionally).  I've been slammed, have a lot to learn but believe I'm heading down the right path right now. 

So where does that leave my little man?  Top Gun is going to a local daycare (just down the street from my work) and after a couple of weeks where he broke my heart every day, things are much better.  This morning he left me without any prodding and walked over to join a classmate playing on a little horse that jumps up/down.  awesome....

Baby girl and HER baby girl are doing great.  She is working, going to school and sleeping...a lot.  I hope this is a sign to come that little baby girl will sleep a lot at night. :)

My groom is working very hard for the state and as hard for the Guard in the JAG Corps.  He's also training for his annual physical like I've never seen him train before.  He looks awesome!

Other than that, I'm helping plan Haley's baby shower and Ira's 2nd birthday party.  Our thinking was that we would take Ira to Sea World at San Diego, SD Zoo and Legoland for his birthday.  However, with my new job, we may have to put that off to the end of the summer when I have leave.  Awww - the joy of starting fresh with a company including NO leave....:(

Hope your Spring is starting off with a bang and not horrible weather like we have.  Stay safe and dry everyone!!
