I guess with all the cross fit in the air Ivy felt motivated to learn to jump.

Life is a little crazy right now with moving, selling the house and David being in training. But there's still time for the park on a nice day

Hayden's 3rd Birthday

Hayden will turn three on Monday.  She was soooo looking forward to her birthday party. She has been waking up for the past week and asking me "Is today my party day?".  She wanted a princess cake and everything to be pink.  And of course, Cinderella came to play games with Hayden and all of her friends.  

 Ivy wore her dress the entire party then felt like relaxing on the couch.

Hayden loves lipgloss, pink, dress up, wigs, tap shoes, pink, nail polish, and pink. She can melt my heart in an instant with her random, "I love you, Mama" and big hugs.  She is woking hard and can almost write her name.  She enjoys school and her favorite thing to do at school is paint and color.  She believes everything that her big sister says and she is always helping Ivy to climb onto things.  She's a joy to our days and the best snuggler in the family.

Here We Go....

We put our house on the market Monday.  Wednesday we had an offer and had until 5 pm Thursday to counter which we were going to do but then at 4:30 we had another offer which was full price!  The movers will be here to pack and ship our things on February 13th and we close on our house February 15th.  So here we go..... We'll probably be headed to Guam the first full week of March.

I'm super sad to be leaving our house which has been so wonderful for 8 years.  But through my moments of sadness I return to a feeling of peace because I know that big plans await us greater than we can imagine for ourselves.  There have been such sweet memories here but we have so many more memories to create.

My dad reminded me the other day that thankfulness and joy are connected.  And it's so true, when I feel sad (more sentimental) about our move I just start saying all the things that I am so thankful for and joy quickly fills my heart.  You should try it, it works.  :)
