everybody just keeps getting older

So we had a couple birthdays this past weekend and it just sort of shocks me how we all just keep getting older.  It seems like time is going by so slow, but then another year is past and before you know it, your in your 30's and wondering how that happened. 

My family's (immediate family including my siblings and nieces and nephews and parents) birthdays start in August and end February.  Then from March through July nothing.  So our string of birthdays is fixing to come to and end.

In 2013 Jack turned 2 in August. Abigail turned 8 in September, and Austin turned 6 in October. 
 I myself turned  30!
We are like legit grown-ups now!

This this past weekend my husband joined the 30 club.  I'm super excited about being in my 30's.  I just have this feeling it's going to be some of my best years.  Not that my 20's were bad, but it did consist of a lot of  pregnancy, newborns, lack of sleep, too much weight gain, job stress, financial stress, and most of that has passed now. 

My sweet little niece Audrie just turned two this weekend as well.  

We got her those little rubber boots she's wearing.  They light up and everything!

Love her!

Two of my handsome guys at the party.  The other was off playing!

As much as I enjoy celebrating birthdays, I'm sort of glad to have a break from them for a while.

I'm still here

So I'm not sure what happened, but I haven't blogged since early October.  I don't know why, I just lost my motivation.  At one point maybe I told myself I was done with all this blogging business, but I don't really want to be.

So much has happened since my last post and I'm not even going to try and update you on everything.  I think I'd rather just say...

Happy Halloween!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Merry Christmas!

Happy New Year!

and now start fresh from this point in time.

My family and I are all happy healthy and busy as ever.

Here's to a new year and some new adventures!
