I'm Back...I think!

So it has officially been an entire year since I've last blogged! As I come back with my new camera and a ton of memories that aren't yet blogged, I am hesitant to begin again...not really sure why...I think because blogging can get a little addictive for me so it's seems to be an "all or nothing" trend in my life. I get SUPER overwhelmed when thinking about how behind I am and how much has happened over the last year that I've left out so I will just start at present day. This way I might actually stick to it! Here's a list of some highlights of the last year:

Josh got a new job. (August 09)
We joined a new church and love it! (August 09)
Chris Taylor, our friend from CO, became our "short-term" roommate...we made him stay for 8 months :) (August 09)

We were blessed to be able to buy our first house and moved to sort-of rural Wylie (very rural compared to Addison, where we came from.) (December 09)

We found out we are expecting our 3rd baby (February 10)
We got to start a small group in our home where we share in bible study, fellowship, and prayer every other Thursday night. (February 10?)
The kids and I got Josh a puppy, Judah, for his birthday. (May 10)

Kimmie and Johnny got married, yea! (June 10)

We found out our 3rd baby is a girl. Pictured is our family enjoy our strawberry/blueberry donut tradition. (June 10)

Vacation to the mountains in CO and to visit the Taylor family (Yes, we finally let Chris move out and go back to his wife and 5 children.) (June 10)

Pictured: Sarah Taylor with Caleb
Youth camp!! (June 10)
Maylea turned 3!! (So I'll back track a little b/c I can't not blog my baby's birthday!) (July 10)

So I guess that was the last year in a very quick recap. It feels good to be back.

Happy Birthday, Maylea!

Our sweet little girl is 2! This year we decided to theme her party "ducks and donuts." Maylea loves donuts so she didn't seem to mind that didn't have cake. She invited a small group of friends to an area park where they fed the ducks, played on the playground, and devoured donuts. I have to admit, it is so much fun playing with little girl stuff. Our house is now often decorated with dolls, tutus, butterfly wings and princess high heels thanks to the fun gifts her friends and family brought her. Thank you God for our beautiful little girl. Full of spunk and attitude, she is a ton of fun and a little ball of joy!

Our Future Picasso

Sweet Maylea loves to paint...She was having so much fun painting everything but the paper that I just couldn't stop her. I just love how our little girl seems to not have a care in the world. She has no fear of getting dirty and she "goes all in" with everything she does...fits included! I cherish these times as she grows up so fast. We are so blessed to have our precious little girl in our lives!

Maylea's Mother's Day Tea

Here are the pictures from Maylea's class tea. The kids made the hats for all the moms. We had a great time!

Kansas & her mommy, Tasha (Tasha told me that Kansas has two baby dolls and she named them baby Kamryn and baby cute)

Maylea & her friend, Cade Martin

This is one of Maylea's teachers, Ms. Vida. Maylea already misses her and asks for her all the time!

The joy of natural process!

Warning, some of you moms might be totally grossed out by this so I'm warning you now. Before you watch this video please know I was not home and Josh did wash hands after all was done! :) Maylea is a little too close for comfort for and you'll see!

Tarzan & Son

A couple weeks ago, when Caleb was quarantined for having the croup, Josh decided to take him outside to play for a while while Maylea was taking her nap. I was inside doing laundry when I heard Josh and Caleb yelling, "Mooommmmy, come look!" Usually when both of them are yelling out at me it is because they are doing something amusing, so I grabbed my camera and went outside. That is when I found Daddy Tarzan and his son up in the tree. Caleb was enjoying so much that it took a while to convince him to finally come down. I love watching my sweet baby is growing into a curious, adventurous, little boy that he is becoming. I don't look forward to the day I hear, "moooommmmmy!" and see Caleb in the top of a taller, more flimsy tree by himself. I guess I have to accept the fact that those days will be here sooner than I know it.
