Well this morning started out with a bang or should I say a sputter lol.. Chris got up this morning, got in the shower and got all lathered up. While trying to rinse off the water all the sudden stopped lol.. Our dog rapped her lead rope around the garden hose and jerked on it until she broke the water pipe off at the ground.. So we had to go to my parents to get ready for school.. So after I had to pay the plumber to fix the water pipe we now are among the civilized again and have running water lol!!!

Here lately I feel like I am so busy that I can't seem to find time for me! Does that sound remotely familiar to anyone else?? This Thursday Feb. 19 it will be my 32nd birthday and I am wondering where has 32yrs gone.
I look at my girls and I know where the best part of it was but what have I done with the rest of it? Last night as I layed in bed with Chris I thought about all the things in my life that I have done and how they have affected me. The greatest one being the birth of my girls and the joy they have brought to my life, that joy can't be measured. Then I think about the most life changing event and that would have to be the day Lacey was born. If God would of never blessed us with her grace I wouldn't know any of you who read this blog or I wouldn't have gained some of my very best friends. I have had the priviledge to meet alot of great people in places I would of never traveled and I have gotten to love on some of the cutiest & most precious angels. It funny how one little girl changed so much in my life.
I would like to think I am a better mother,friend,wife,and so on because of the lessons I have learned from her & all that she has been through. This blog started out about me and somehow it came around to being about Lacey lol.. I am so grateful for the 32yrs I have had and all the blessing that I have been given within those years. I have a wonderful husband,3 beautiful girls, great parents, and host of friends who are so dear to me.
If you are one of those friends who I don't tell enough or at all "Thank you so much for being my friend and letting me be apart of your lives and the lives of your family".. Life is so good and I have been blessed for being able enjoy it.. What more could anyone ask for out of life than to be surrounded by the people they love~~ I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day~~

YAY Lacey~~

Well Lacey has been in big girl panties at school since Christmas and has only had a few accidents. Our only obstacle was that she wouldn't poo-poo on the potty :(~~ Well this past week she has been doing sooo good!! So I am hoping this means Lacey is fully potty trained (knock on wood) lol.. She loves being in her big girl panties and tells everyone she is wearing them lol. I am so proud of her and all the effort she is putting into being a big girl. I was so worried that we would be in high school and still in pull-ups!!! It is so funny cause Lacey's ped told me to just ease into it with her and don't push or she would hate going to the potty.. So that is just what I did and now we are POTTY TRAINED!! YAY LACEY~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I just wanted to share that brag with ya'll so please keep your fingers crossed that this is it and not just a short lived phase~ I love you Lacey Bug and keep up the good work!!
