March for Babies 2011

This is being written and posted almost two months late, but I wanted to share about our successful March for Babies 2011.  For the 3rd year in a row, we were one of the top Houston Family teams!  We raised over $15,000...simply amazing.  We are ever so grateful and humbled by this.

Thanks to the hard work of my in-laws, they hosted a very successful BBQ chicken fundraiser.  I don't have pictures of this day since I forgot my camera, but it was lots of fun.  We are so appreciative of all their hard work and dedication to this special cause.  We hope that one day every baby is born healthy!  :)

Hello again!

Sorry to keep y'all waiting (if anyone still checks this)!  I did not intend to take such a long break from blogging.  It just sort of happened with all the commotion and stuff that goes along with a 2 and 3 year old.  :)

We are doing very well.  School is out for summer and it is quite nice.  Coy LOVED his
MDO (Mothers Day Out) program this past year.  His speech has improved and his vocabulary has grown by leaps and bounds.  We are so very thankful for his ongoing progression and development.  We are always reminded what an absolute miracle we have walking among us. 

Cydney has transitioned from my sweet little baby girl to a crazy (but still sweet), very energetic almost two year old.  She is always on the go and very talkative.  It's amazing to us how quickly her speech has developed.  She is still my cuddle bug and we laugh so much together. 

Chris and I are doing great and enjoying our babies so much.  Don't get me wrong, they are exhausting and we do have our moments, but overall, we are doing amazing.  We have our house on the market and have decided to downsize.  It's only been a year since we moved into our beautiful home, but we have decided after many talks and prayers, that a smaller house would be best for our family at this time.  We are excited and praying that God's will be done with this transition. 

Here are some favorite photos over the past few months.  Enjoy!  Hope to be back more often than not!
