Well, hello again!

SO... my slight OCD has been what has kept me from keeping up on this blog. I know right? You would think it would be the other way around. But No. I realized something the other day. I was so worried about posting/blogging without pictures that I would wait until I had a cute little picture collage or whatever to post along side my babbling that the months got further and further behind and here we are, a year and a half later and lots of missed posts and thoughts and...journal keeping. Oh well, since I'm sure everyone who read my blog has given up hope of ever hearing from me again, I'll just write for me.
Over my absence from the blogging world there have been so many changes that have happened in our lives, and since May of 2012 we have had

Babies Born.
Brandon's Aunt Aline had a little boy Henry James in July of 2012 and his cousin Amy had a little boy, Trace born in July of 2013.

We have also celebrated marriages!
 Brandon's uncle Patrick and his girlfriend Charla were married in October of 2012, and his cousin Daniel and girlfriend Britney were married in March of 2013! I LOVE WEDDINGS!

There has been lots of Soccer, more Farmington plays, and many Lagoon days!

After much deliberation, we gave Dash to Brandon's mom after she offered to take him off our hands. 
It was a hard decision but best in the long run. And the kids still get to see him!!! 

Sam broke his arm in December of 2012 (big shocker) and Natalie got braces in February of 2013.

Our biggest shock came in April 2013 when we found out we were going to have a baby.
After I had an ectopic pregnancy in July of 2012, we were pretty discouraged, and though that maybe it was not in the cards for us to have another one. But...

Words can't even describe the feeling of joy we've had at preparing for this little baby girl to join our family!

It's weird to think that I have an 11 year old and a 5 year old. 
Yes, that's 6th Grade and Kindergarten, and it's CRAZY!

And if our lives weren't busy enough already, we are finishing our basement too!

WHEW! See, that wasn't so bad catching up on all the fun we've had over the last year and a half.
Now, if I can just keep up on the blog, then I wouldn't have to recap. 
We shall see how good I do with that. *Fingers Crossed*

Just found this so I thought I'd post it!
