I'm so thankful for these four and although we do yell and laugh in our home, the smiles are way better to focus on. We're SO BLESSED God gave them to us and we will boast about it and display it. Now onto picking the pic's.

Being busy is comfortable for us but wow, am I thankful for Heffe! After two parties last night I was beat! Drum clean because of him. He is the best!

Queens bakery was a hit for our Sunshine preschoolers. Best preschool ever!

Obv's I took rubi out of school last Friday. Thinking I won't let my girls ever leave our site. Ugh!
Heavy H E A R T!

This sweet little team is still winning. I mean what is going on? It's so fun!

We already have 4 major family parties under our belt. Sad to say its flying by. Our family and friends parties are off the hook this year. That just sounds appropriate because I'm so serious. It's like team, church and class parties taken to a whole new level. I'm along for the ride and loving it. What a special time for these little ones.

I love Emily. She is so good and knows my style. When our pine needles, decorations and Christmas music are put away, its going to get messy around here. I see paint on the walls, new pillows and PINK will be back. Excited!

Fun weekend with soccer tourny, glow in the dark 5k run, birthday celebrations, Choir performance, bowling, tree lighting service and more. Life is filled with extra joy this time knowing we get to celebrate Jesus and make it about him. Excited to have soup nights in the neighborhood and walk around at night enjoying all the Christmas lights. A constant in our life seems to be Rock Harbor, camping, family, dinner in the hood, coffee dates and sports. Nothing else matters. I am feeling thankful this morning. 

Make new friends but keep the old ones. I love me some Ang!
This lil' lucky duck is a fourth grader which means ice skating with the Ducks on Thursdays
Camping chix
Field trip to AZ was so relaxing and much needed.
14 years strong with the Heffe. Dated for 5 before that so to say 19 years together is so awesome. Thank goodness for him is all I have say. I never knew he would be the hardest working, loving, patient daddy and husband. Blessed beyond!

Next year I want everyone to do this Electric Run, amazing!

Went to a tiny Italian place in HB. Ohhhhh, I loved the food! The girls (without our hubs) celebrating Faye.

Weekend Away…Check

Proud of Tim for killin' the half marathon. All I can say is hotel Santa Barbara is a must stay.  Love State Street, especially with Starbucks and Design within Reach right next door. These chairs got me very excited about our new dining chairs. Oh, and there is one picture that all I can say is boys will be boys!

Oh Happy Days

Birthday's came and went. I love having this little space to look back and count our blessings. Brittney plus a party of 8 took me to Plums. Spoiled me rotten with new kicks, purses, clothes, makeup and girl talk.  Hali came over and brought wine, and some sweet friends too! Nothin' better than being surrounded by love.

 Bella spent her day with Olivia at the Grove.               Rubi's friends loved on her at school.
Thank you Sarah for my sweet treats from Oueens. 
The best japanese food with these beauties.

Breakfast with our girls

All nighter and a Katy Perry movie with theses fun girls

 Hello Halloween! To the Rescue, Rock on and our lucky bug were just the sweetest.

                                                                   Love this month!

Love this girl!

Matthew 7:24-27

Building on a Solid Foundation

24 “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. 26 But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. 27When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”

I love her but I really like her and am excited to one day be her friend. But just as Keli said, I do not like everything else that comes with growing up. Like mean girls and mean moms! Teaching them how to control emotions while working through life as a kind, humble, respectful and owning up to our mistakes. How sad to have to go through life with an attitude like a predator and missing the "big" picture. Once again, this has brought me to my knees and I see our kids like little sponges from who they are guided by. So thankful for her teacher, for water polo and the coaches, for rock harbor where she is on band and in a small group. She will one day grow up, its happening, but this house will be built on solid rock!
