I’m back….again :)

It’s been too long.  It’s hard to get back in the groove of blogging when you’ve been a slacker for a while.  Here is a brief catch-up of what has happened in the last month or so and then hopefully I can stay caught up for a while.  We have a ton of things going on right now and I’m so excited to get started back in the blogging world.

We had a great time on our trip to Cancun.  It was so strange and peaceful.  The quietness was at times awkward…no kids running around anywhere at the place we stayed.  The majority of the time we spent our time under an umbrella on the beach reading, which is something I haven’t done in a very long time.  I found myself falling in the love with the “Twilight”series and couldn’t keep my eyes off of the books.  Thomas had to frequently snap me back in to reality.

Would you believe that I hardly took any pictures while we were there?  Thomas wouldn’t let me take any pictures of him so it was easy to leave my camera in the room for the day.  Even though I HATE the picture of me below, I felt like I needed to post at least one picture of us.

We stayed at the Excellence Riviera right outside of Cancun and it was perfect.  I think we ate more food than our bodies could handle but we enjoyed every minute of it and I would love to go back sometime.

The pictures below are of Joshua and Macy’s birthday party.  Joshua turned 7 and Macy turned 2.  I can’t believe how quickly things are changing in our family.
Macy almost burned her little nose blowing out the candles.  :)

School started for the kiddos.  They started at a new school this year.  We have moved into a rental house…still looking for a house to buy!!!  There have been big changes going on but they’ve been good I think.  Caley’s first day of Kindergarten didn’t go too well.  In the picture she’s trying to smile but you can tell that she’s been crying.  It was totally unexpected for me to see the tears because she was so excited about school.  She’s doing really well now though.  All the kids are doing good and really liking school…thank goodness.   It’s so different with all of my kiddos being in school now.  It’s really the beginning to the end.  Sad.

Also, I finally decided to jump in there and start my Photography business.  I’m really excited about it and I really appreciate all of you that have been so encouraging and supportive.  It means so much and I don’t think I could have ever started if it weren’t for friends and family that gave me that little push to go for it.

I’ll have a ton more to blog about soon….football, baseball, soccer, Auburn games, etc.

    Anonymous - I think that the Excellence resorts are by far the best. Glad you had fun. Charlie & Laura went to Excellence Playa Majures on their honeymoon. Gary & I are going to the Valentin Imperial Maya soon. It isn't as nice as Excellence, but at least it is —AWAY! ha! Maybe Julie & Jud will go & let us keep Luke.
    I love keeping up through your blog. Thanks for posting.
