It's Your Birthday, Shout HOORAY!!!!


My WONDERFUL husband is 31 today!! Stephen is such an AMAZING guy, I am so lucky to have him. He works so hard to take care of our family, and always does so with a smile. He brings joy to the kids faces every time he walks through the door after work. He makes me laugh and comforts me when I have had a bad day. He helps me to be a better person and he makes the best popcorn EVER!!
I love you Stephen,

Happy New Year

I can't believe it is 2011!!! We had a fabulous year and the best part was at the end... being in our own place again. I am so thankful to my parents who allowed us to come and live with them while we got back on our feet. It was such a comfort to know that when we needed help, they were there, and still are. Thank you mom and dad!!

Our New Years Eve was nice, my parents come over that evening to babysit, and Stephen and I went and exchanged some things from Christmas and then went out to dinner. We came home and put a movie on till midnight. We went and got Hailey up at 11:30pm so she could ring in the New Year. She was very excited to be the only kid up. We watched the acorn drop on TV and said
All was great, until... Hailey being excited spilled her sparkling white(thank goodness) grape juice on our new coach. I was a tad angry. I went and looked up on line how to clean the sofa and luckily found out that baby wipes, a hair dryer, and toothbrush does the trick. So, about 30min later, my sofa was clean, Happy New Year:)

you can just see the joy on my face

New Years day we did some more shopping and then had a late lunch at my parents with the rest of the family. It was a nice relaxing day.

I look forward to what 2011 will hold for our family!

Ok, here a few pictures of the house, please excuse all the clutter:)
