I know lots of you have been asking about our new house, and I have been sharing bits and pieces of it on Instagram. Finally, here is the downstairs! There is still LOTS more I want to change and do, but that will come in time. Our house will probably always be a work in progress! I am no professional decorator, I just do what I like :) So here it is...
Kylin was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. What a special day it was to see her so happy and beaming from ear to ear as her daddy baptized her and pulled her out of the water. I think we all felt the spirit there and knew that Heavenly Father was pleased with her choice. I know he loves that special little girl just as much as we do. Thank you to family that flew in to support her and all of our wonderful friends who came and participated :)
I can't believe my baby is about to turn 8 and getting baptized. I know all mom's say that it goes by so fast, but it really does. I remember the day she was born and not knowing if she would make it or not. My little preemie Kylin came into this world early with underdeveloped lungs and a severe lung infection. There was no cry when she came, and the doctors whisked her away before I could even see or hold her. I remember not knowing what was happening and being more terrified than I even have in my life. You are a fighter though, and after only 2 weeks in the NICU you were able to come home Kylin! You are our little spitfire full of giggles and intense love and sweetness. I am so incredibly blessed to be your mother and I know that you are a special Daughter of God. I love you so much, and I know you are gonna do big things for this world...You are starting by making the right choice and being baptized an Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We are so very proud of you, and know that your Heavenly Father is too.
Gone are the days of getting my kids to match for Halloween. Now, they all have an opinion and want to choose their own costumes. I guess it is ok, since no matter what they wear they are so dang cute :)
My totally fierce Maleficent...this might be my favorite picture of her EVER.
I love Spring time in Texas because of all the beautiful Blue Bells and wildflowers. Maybe that is partly why I like Easter so much. My good friend Kim is all a photographer also and took some family pictures for us. We are also getting the newest member of our family from her too...Our mini wiener dog, Scout. We don't get to bring her home for a couple more weeks, but Kim brought her for the shoot. After we were done I took a couple of my kiddos pics with scout.
