Abby is 7!

I can't beleive that this silly, sweet little girl is now 7. I'm not really sure how or when that happened but my baby is not so much a baby anymore.

She has always been a little goofy and silly...

she has NEVER been timid or shy...

she has always had such a love for life and others...

now she is growing into a great kid, a sweet sister and a very loyal friend. I can't imagine our family without her. I always say how much she is a mixture of my personality and my mom's. She has so much spunk for one so small that it is hard not to smile when you are with her.

Scentsy party

First of all thank you to all those who came to, or helped contribute to the success of my first Scentsy party. I was so relieved and thankful that everything went well. I am excited to see where this can go. Now I get to "pound the pavement" as they say, and find people who are interested in hosting parties. So here it goes.

New Pictures of the kids

With the camera safely found I decided to seize the moment and take them down to the temple grounds, while we waited for Tracy to get home from work, and take some pictures. I love that they will still humor their mom and all sit without complaint while I take pictures of them. I seem to be in a little bit of shock with how grown up they all seem to be. Where did all the time go? I hope all of you near and far enjoy these as much as I do.

Caroline, Hunter and Abby

This is what makes my life so full and rewarding. I love waking up to them everyday. Who wouldn't like to see those faces forever!!

Camera Found!!!!

I can finally breathe again. I found my camera yesterday morning. I have been so worried about where it could be and if I would ever find it and all the pictures that are on it. Thankfully it had just gotten pushed under and behid my printer table.

I am glad that I found it now because I reall wanted to have pictures of my scentsy kick off party on Saturday. I am so nervous and hopeful that this event goes well. I feel that I have done all that I can to make sure that it is a success. Well one more shot at getting info out there... for any of my friends that are here in Mesa that would like to come I would love to see you. Please leave me a note and I will get you the address and other information. The party is from 4-6 pm. Well I have to run kids to school before they drive me nuts;)

Something New

OK, because I think that I have nothing better to do in all the stress of life, I have started a new business for myself. I have become a Scentsy consultant. I really love their stuff and so I have found myself wanted to sell it. For those of you who know me really well, I am a fairly confident person but this takes me completely out of my comfort zone and it makes me a little nervous. Here we go though, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

If any of my friends that are here locally would like to come to my kick-off party it will be on Saturday Nov. 15th from 4-6. If you are interested leave me a note and I will get back to you with the details.

Back to a 8-5

Tracy has found a new job!!! With the housing market the way it is any extra money is a blessing. The down side?... back to an 8-5 with a commute. I have found in the last week that I am really missing the lifestyle that having and running your own business gives Tracy and I as parents. It is a real adjustment for us that he is back to a commute that is longer than 10 minutes (on a busy day).

In my world I am facing a busy week of work and then the HUGE job of putting the house back together since we finished the remodel. I have a few tuch-ups and then it is on to getting the kids back to their own rooms for the first time in a year!! The remodel has been 98% done for a couple of months but we had some good friends and their family stay with us for a couple of months, we will miss them.

I am still going through pictures of the remodel on my computer and my camera is still lost so as soon as I get things settled down I will do a post of all the before and after pictures that we have taken in the last year.
