Day 344

At Bedtime tonight the girls decided to look at books together in Grace's bed. You can't tell, but their room was dark other than their flashlights. It was beautiful.

Day 342

From Top Down: Today at Tae Kwon Do she was really working to focus on her form. She looks so cute focused :-), and Pajama Day (yesterday). This is right before we headed to the most fun day of their school year!

Day 340

We've been sick for the last 24 hours (lots of throwing up, very little sleep) and I've contracted the sickness as well. Today I've felt like I was run over by a truck and Maddie was starting to be on the mend so she made me this picture. I literally got teary-eyed when she handed it to me. It's so special to see how good her writing is becoming, and how cute her little person is! She continues to amaze me.

Day 339

We took the girls to Disney Princesses on Ice over the weekend and it was SO fun! They are at such great ages to take to things like this. It was a total preview of what we can expect in just a few weeks when we travel to Orlando! But, Shhhhh, they have NO idea! :-)

This was taken a month ago but cracks me up over and over. Wait and watch for when Grace tries to feed Maddie...Classic!

Day 326

The girls got new shoes over the weekend and I love what they chose! They each had a say in what they wanted; their true personalities came out.

Grace knew what she wanted right away; sparkly shoes that light up with
every step she takes.

Maddie needed more time; she considered all the options
and chose the one's with Rainbow laces. I should have known this would be her choice considering every time I give her a pedicure she requests "Rainbow toes!"

Day #...Who Knows?

I'm not sure why it's been so hard to blog lately...Half the time I forget, then when I do remember I can't think of anything to say. Actually, I can think of so much to say that I don't know where to begin. In the past week, I visited California (alone) to attend my cousin's wedding. It was the first time I've been away from both Gabe and the girls for any period of time and I was sick the entire time :( I had the worst sinus/head cold/bronchial thing and found the only blessing to be that since I was sick 3000 miles away, at least I didn't have to take care of anyone!

I've been doing lots of work on myself personally and it's going well, but it's also really difficult. I think in the past when I've done therapy I never went as deep as I'm going now. It feels good and draining at the same time. When you add that onto Al-Anon, it can feel like a lot. It's good for me though; especially at a time like now where anxiety seems to be creeping in.

This leads me to the fact that we are planning to try to sell our home next month. We are spending February getting it ready. (ie) Donating a ton of stuff, putting things in storage and touching up paint, etc. Come to think of it, this is another reason I haven't been blogging! I really know that we need a bit more space, but the thought of showing this house while we live here is really overwhelming. We've never sold a home before and the fact that it's uncharted territory for us, makes me anxious. I'm trying to remember that God has a plan for us, and for our new home but when I'm imagining our house on the market, I feel unsure...

Time to get to work around here today! Lot's of laundry, knitting, playing, etc. Rainy day in VA and planning to just lay low. Happy Saturday!
