Merry Christmas

I for one am ready and also not ready for Christmas to be over this year.  My husband works for a major shipping company and that greatly effects our life this time of year.  Peak they call it.  A time when Cam sometimes works 14 hours a day and drives 60 hours in one week.  While everyone else is getting family time, we are getting a lot less time together.  I look around blog land facebook and see all the fun family stuff that people are doing and I get disappointed. BUT... I like to take a positive skew on it.  I like to joke that I am married to Santa Claus.  I think of the numerous people out their who are anxiously waiting  for their packages to arrive. I'm glad Cam can help bring a little bit of happiness to them this holiday season. 
Because my husband has a job that is inconvenient this time of year it makes me think a little deeper about the many other people who sacrifice time with their families not just during the holidays but all year long.  I grew up in a family with a very  "traditional" schedule.  My dad was home for dinner, he was always off work on major holidays.  That was my world. I assumed that everyone had a life like me.  Now I know better.  I know how good I have it.  My heart goes out to all those who are giving up their time with families so that my family can have a good holiday.
 SO here's to the doctors, the police and security workers, to the retail and grocery store employees, the soldiers, the snow-plowers and many more who work so I can have a happy holiday season.  When you are stressed that your package hasn't come, or you can't find that one last gift at the store... please be kind.

Wishing everyone in blog land an Fantastic Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Remember That Time I Didn't Blog for 2 Years.....

I really want to start with the blogging again.  I stopped because life it crazy, but looking at old posts makes me want to do it again.  It is such a good way to document what my family has done.  It also a great creative and emotional outlet.  So here I go again....but I am not gonna tell anyone just so the pressure is off.

These are my amazing Babies.  They have grown up so much since my last post.  The tallness, the lack of baby fat, the fact that they are both in all day school  all makes me super excited and super sad.  It is so exciting to see them grow and mature.  It also makes me anxious.  I am very experienced with young kids, tweens and teens, not so much.  I am constantly sure I am going to screw this parenting thing up.

 Look at my kids with my awesome husband.  Yup, that is how he dresses every every day.  But I love him.  Who else would let me clip a flower in his hair before a mud run.   It has been 10 years now since we were married and many more years since I fell for him.  I love that even though we are young we have known each other longer than we haven't known each other, if that makes sense.
Wanna see a picture of him looking all hot? I do....
 Nothing hotter than a awesome dad and his girls.  Just for fun here is a pic of me and the girls.
 Now the whole family.  It was fun taking our girls to the same temple we were married in
10 years later.  Makes me nostalgic.
 Here we are then and now.

I know, I just like to show off my family. I feel so blessed to have these 3 people in my life.  They make me crazy sometimes but they also help mold me into a better person. 

Well of to bed
