Friday, Friday, Friday...

Can you tell I love my weekends?

It is a beautiful day here in East Texas. The clouds finally cleared out and it has cooled down quite a bit. I can not wait for an equally gorgeous weekend *fingers crossed*! Maybe I can finally get motivated to do some fall decorating.

Tonight is the Middle School dance at Caleb's school. He has a "girlfriend" who is going with him (ie. they will meet up there) and I do not think I am ready for this!!! It should be interesting - I hope they have a great time!

Here are more pictures - I'm so excited to have on of Morgan! Whose school pictures were ever this good????

My gorgeous Morgan

and here is Emalyn in one of her beautiful Etsy bows - Meggan gets quite a bit of her stuff from Etsy shops - the green brings out those big brown eyes - she's beautiful!

Wade will work the first "real" hunt of the season all weekend, so the rest of us will get stuff done around the house and hang out. I am headed to a "girls' party" tomorrow night for a friend's housewarming. I can't wait!!!! Just a couple of days off to get the laundry done and nap will be really nice!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!!!

Is it Monday again?

No, it's Tuesday, but it sure feels like Monday around here!

Since I haven't been on in awhile, you will not believe how Emalyn has grown!!!! She had her 9 month checkup yesterday, weighing in at 21 pounds. She is ALMOST walking. She is THE most beautiful baby I've ever seen (and believe me, my three children were gorgeous!!!). She is hilarious and keeps us laughing. She smiles most of the time, and is hugging and kissing everyone these days. Meggan gets her the cutest bows from different Etsy shops!

See what I mean?

I started my first actual class day yesterday at Axia College, University of Phoenix. I am taking two online courses. So far, so good. I am really enjoying the setup. I love how I can read all of my materials, then have time to answer discussion questions or write up my papers. It's much easier than the college lectures I remember back in the day! Once I get this Associate's knocked out, I'll be shooting for my BA in Marketing. Then, who knows? Maybe an MBA?????

We found out Meg & Jacob will be in Albany, GA sometime early 2010. If you have any tips/pointers/advice about living over there, send them our way. Meggan & Emalyn are ready for him to be home!!!!

Long time gone...

Sorry it's been so long!!!!! This was a crazy second half of summer...lots going on - some good, some bad - all time consuming!!!!

Fall seems to have arrived here in East Texas. We are all doing well. Wade's work schedule has cranked up, the kids are back in school full swing, and Meg & Em are still here. I am working, working, working and selling Southern Living at HOME and going back to school!!!

Yes I decided it was time. This whole "Year of turning 40" has really weighed on me. A couple of months ago I decided to get in shape (so far pretty good!) and finish that college degree. For now I am going the online route through University of Phoenix. This is only first week, but I think I will enjoy it.

I resolve to post more often!!!!!! I miss my blog reading - when I have time for it :)
