Florida Fun

We live an hour from Disney World!  Our good friends, The Hanley's, came down for their winter vacation just before Christmas....we met them at Magic Kingdom.  What fun for us to be able to enjoy all the touristy things that Florida has to offer just minutes from our home. We look forward to having more visitors. 😊

Me and my Parents....

This is the first time my parents have been to visit us in our new location.  It's been awhile since I had seen them.  It has been so good to have them here in our home.

Christmas 2013

Lucey and Sammy (Nana and Papa's pup)..... My Dad made Lucey a beautiful crib for her baby dolls. It's beautiful! You can see a sneak peak of it on the right.

Christmas In Florida

Adam flew in from Colorado on Christmas day.  Merry Christmas to me! I have all my Chicks home!  

My parents came for an extended vacation to spend time with The Troops. Our Christmas celebration extended beyond two days.  We waited to open gifts with Adam on the 26th.  

My cousin and her two kiddos arrive this afternoon.  We will have a happy house full for sure. By Monday everyone will be gone.  It's going to be super quiet around here come next week. For now....I'll enjoy the blessings of family.

Let's Try This Again....

Happy New Year!

I'm back....I'm going to give this another go.....

So much has happened in the year since I have posted to my blog.  Moving 4 times in 5 years definitely has taken it's toll on me.  I'm so eager to update our blog even if it's only to journal for our family. 

I'm starting with a picture of Lucey.  This was taken at St. Louis Children's Hospital this past August. She had her yearly check up with her cranio-facial team. 17 months ago Lucey had major jaw reconstruction.  Her amazing doctor took one of her little ribs and made a jaw for her.  I am in awe of how well she did and the result is beautiful.  The best part though....she speaks more clearly and has a better bite.  And that is what matters most.  That she has functionality. 

We love Dr. Woo!  He is such a blessing.


On a side note...we moved to Tampa, Florida in July.  We love it here!  We love it so much that we have decided to build a home.  We are in the beginning stages.  It's so exciting! I think this is it for awhile. Ron and I are ready to put down some roots.  The kids have adjusted beautifully.  Quickly. God has been so gracious to us. I am thankful.

(I started this post a few months ago from my ipad.  I got frustrated when I could not post for some reason. I never posted this.  I was surprised when I logged on this morning through an Ap and saw it still sitting there in my drafts.  I'd better relearn how to blog.)

Wishing everyone a very blessed 2014.
