Why a blog?
This is my first time to ever do anything like this so please bare with me. I decided to start a blog mostly for myself. I wanted to keep track of all the crazy things that go on in our house on a daily basis. I also thought this would be good for my soul and keep me smiling and laughing even when I feel defeated by my littles at the end of the day. I'm sure there are a lot of blogs out there similar to this one and it may just bore people but that's alright. This is us, me and my littles!

She's getting better at leaving the ornaments alone but I still find her hiding some in her room from time to time.
This is our first year to have a cat and I wasn't sure what she would think of the tree. Apparently she thinks it's her own personal space and doesn't like if we go near it. Her new favorite spot in on the tree skirt OR climbing up it!! I have caught her several times trying to climb it. Really?! They do that?! She is worse than the girls! She loves that tree. Weird...
This time of year my littles always get sick. They get sick often I guess you could say but right around now is when they all get really bad chest colds. Beau always needs to cough but doesn't like to I guess so she just keeps it in her throat. You know when you're talking to someone and they totally need to clear their throat but don't? That's Beau!! We're always telling her to clear her throat but she just walks away saying,"Me did!" in her raspy voice. It never bothers her. Not much does. She will be walking on a flat surface right next to us and then we hear a thud and turn around and she's lying on the floor dusting off her knees. Her little legs are like rubber and they just give out, leaving her on the ground. She rarely ever cries about it though. Just gets up and says,"My fine" and moves on.
On Saturdays I try to make a big, special breakfast for the girls. I'm a huge fan of breakfast, although I don't always eat it, I love the idea of it and love to make it. Homemade donuts is one of their favorites!
I hope it's one of those things they always remember me doing. Donuts and chocolate chip pancakes have always been "our" thing and I just hope they remember and do something similar with their children. :)

He is my favorite, my very best friend and my home. I'm not a very sappy, romantic person but I consider myself pretty passionate about certain things and pretty honest and real. With me, you get what you see. I can't hide my feelings, thoughts or expressions very well. With that said, BJ gets me, me respects me and loves me unconditionally which is more than I deserve! He's the husband that I never dreamed I would have and the most hands on, involved, dependent father for our girls. They don't even realize how blessed they truly are to have a father like him. I know when they're older they'll see what an incredible Godly man he was to our family.
A few months ago BJ was asked if he'd like the opportunity to go on a missions trip this fall to Guatemala for 8 days. He was thrilled and beside himself with excitement. He'd never done anything that before and would of left that day if he could! I've always felt like God has HUGE plans for BJ and this is only the beginning so I knew he had to go on this trip. He and the group left last Wednesday and will be returning this Thursday. We both knew it was going to be hard on us and the girls but that it was totally worth it and we would power through it! This will be the longest he and I have been apart and the longest the girls will go without seeing him. Being that he works where he lives, we are fortunate to see him often and have almost every meal together. Our girls are so used to seeing him ALL the time so with him gone, it's definitely been an adjustment.
We were at church on Sunday and Bella just broke down crying saying she just missed her Dad. I wanted to cry along with her!
Beau has been extra defiant and whenever I ask her why she's hitting, talking back or not listening she says,"Yes mam.I don't know. I want Daddy!!!". I'm sure I'm not the most pleasant when he's gone but I hope I'm not THAT bad to be around.
Jude's not sure what's going on and feels the need to cry whenever Beau does. They're teaming up on me!
