We enjoyed our Labor Day weekend by spending sometime in the sun.

Every year for my entire life my family, cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents have all gotten together at the beach this year my kids had and absolute bash!

They got to know some of their cousins and spending time with Nana and Papa. It was also a nice break from working around the house.  

We went putt putting and walked around some piers looking at some of the fishing boats.  

We also got to show off some of Landen’s golfing skills!

Unfortunately both kids go sick during the week so the week ended with 2 trips to the emergency room.

We also made a trip thru North Carolina to see Shane’s mom and a quick stop through GA

It was a busy 9 days but it was great to see all of our family and friends. But of coarse its nice to be back in our own home!

Have you ever just lost a few days? Well I did! I kinda lost the whole month of January! And the thing was that we weren’t really that busy! We Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, FL. If you haven’t ever been you should defiantly go! Landen enjoyed LOVED it! Lexi got her ears pierced (something that I have been wanting to do for MONTHS but finally got Shane to agree to)! And we have been enjoying the VERY warm weather. We have even gotten to take a walk on the beach! Since I probably haven’t mentioned it in a while I LOVE living in FL!

I have been on a bit of a blogging sabbatical! Not really a sabbatical, but I have been pretty busy with Thanksgiving and now Christmas approaching and just really haven’t had anytime to sit down and write. So I am going to fill you in on a little bit of things that have been going on around here!

Every year we put our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving and it was no different this year!

(To be completely honest my tree no longer looks this way! It is now only 1/2 decorated! I guess that’s the joys of having an infant!)

(I am a little excited about this! This is the first year since I got her that she’s been able to sit on my tree!)

And a little elf named “Chippy”showed up at our house!

He has been moving here and there and everywhere! But we wont go into that right now!

Landen had a “Mom and Me” Craft day at school!

Where we painted an ornamet with and angel on it and made a cupcake for Jesus’s birthday!

And we visited Santa’s beach house, but thats a story for another time!

Oh and Lexi turned 9 months and is WALKING! And has been since right around Thanksgiving!

Anyways I am hoping to start blogging more, but with all the Holidays I am not sure if I will be keeping up we everything we are doing!

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years! (If I forget to write it later!)

Ok so I have a confession! I am kinda a procrastinator! There I said it! How is it that I have a week left until Halloween and I haven’t finished Lexi’s costume yet? How is it that I have not even ordered the tulle for Lexi’s thanksgiving outfit and haven’t even started on applique for the kids shirts? I haven’t taken ANY pictures for Christmas cards! And I haven’t posted ANY pictures of our October activities! I saw a breakdown of the rest of the year the other day and I realized that these next few months are going to FLY by. I am hoping to post some pictures soon.

And now we have been adjusting to life as a family.

Hopefully things will get back on schedule and I will be writing a lot more.
