Lots Of Blessings

Well this summer has been full of changes and blessings for my family. Jeff has started a new job with new hours, benefits, and pay :) He LOVES it! He always has stuff to do and they keep him busy and thats what he loves! Jeff loving his job makes for a happier husband!
As of yesterday I am now a full time employee with my job! I will be at our south side schools running my own programs with my ideas. I've very excited to start planning. If any one out there has good ideas for fun clubs to run after school... let me know!! :) I always am looking for new ideas to keep the kids having fun and being unique and not always the "same ol thing"
Olivia is getting SO big! Time has FLOWN by.... She is ALMOST 2!!! We are starting to think about her 2nd birthday and what we will do to celebrate!! We are thinking a swing set in the backyard and fall/winter clothes... She has a TON of toys and we have no more room!! I think she's old enough to enjoy the swing set through the fall and def. will be ready next spring/summer!
I love all the new things she says and does.. she LOVES dancing and singing... she is FULL of energy... She likes to talk... She has a little boyfriend at school she talks about all the time! It's SUCH a blessing to just watch her interact and see how smart she is. We are working on the ABC's and doing a WONDERFUL job!! I couldn't be more proud of her!! She is mommy's everything!! <3

Why I Love My Husband (3)

Just wanted to share how awesome my husband is. We all already know how talented he is when it comes to art and graphic design, but who knew he could do SWEET nails TOO!! I have an amazing husband!!  He never fails to be the best daddy in the WHOLE world he works all day and comes home to crawl on the ground, laugh, and play all evening. He even does A LOT of the cooking! 

I can't imagine life without him and just want him and everyone to know how blessed I have been by having him by my side through thick and thin!! 

I Love You Jeff!!

Happy 4th of July!!

We celebrated all week long for the 4th of July! We started out on Monday celebrating with Jeff's Parents.. They stayed until Wednesday when my Mom and sisters came into town and we celebrated some more. My Dad came in town on Saturday! Talk about a BUSY funfilled week!! I enjoy having my parents here and spending time with all of them. Olivia also LOVES it!! :)
We spent the 4th actually as a family.. We headed to the aquatic center, but Olivia got a boo boo on the slide so we decided to come home and enjoy our pool and backyard. Heather and Joe came over and we all went swimming, bbq'd, and shot off fireworks... It was an AMAZING day!! I love my family and friends :) Here's a few pictures to capture the good times we had....
