Christmas Recap!

Ava opening some of her presents!!

Her favorite present. Her american girl baby doll!! She was so excited!

Her second favorite was her Dora guitar

Christmas was so heart filling. Seeing my baby girl's eyes light up just put me in awe. We were so grateful to have our hero home for Christmas as well and have our little family together. We had many blessings this year :P

And the countdown is on...t-minus 11 days till we start our East Coast Trip!! Looking forward to our big Christmas with our families back home!!

Crunch Time & An update on this thing called LIFE

I can't believe that it's LITERALLY 3 days till Christmas!! It's crazy. Time has gone by way too fast! We have about two weeks till we leave Washington state and head to Fort Drum, NY. Not looking forward to the long drive, but it will be a new adventure! I am totally looking forward to the pit stop with our families and having a second, even if late Christmas with them all. I am getting anxious about the move. I hate that I can't have everything planned ahead and know this is going to happen at this time and ect. It literally makes me bonkers.

Things with the family are great. We are all excited for our family to get out here and visit and then for our journey across country :P. Ava is a ball of nonstop energy. It amazes me how much knowledge she has. She can now count to five with no help and ten with help and can get to h with little help. She knows the majority of her colors and her shapes. And she is picking up new words left and right and is putting together whole sentences. It makes me proud to see her accomplish so much!!

That is the majority of what is going on. Working on clearing out of this station and then headed home for a little then up to New York!

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from my family to yours!!

holiday cheer and upcoming events

I am getting so excited for Christmas. Even though we aren't decorating for Christmas because of having to take it down a few days later to move. But none the less I am excited. I got Ava some really cool gifts for Christmas. I am so excited to see her reactions this year. I think my favorite gift though would be the American Girl Doll!!!!! I had one growing up and I loved it. I hope she will love it as much as I did. They have a lot more accessories now then they did when I was little. I can't wait for her to open it up and see her expression!!

I am excited to be able to celebrate our Christmas with just us and then a few days later starting our road trip home to the lovely east coast and visting all our wonderful family and friends!

I am excited for it all!!!! The best late Christmas Dinner! SNOW!!!!! Presents!!! Family!! Friends!!!

I am so blessed this year. I have an amazing husband a beautiful and smart daughter. The greatest friends a girl could ask for and most of the greatest families ever. I can't believe this is my life. I take pride of sure and I count my blessings daily for sure.

I am so excited for the move to NY as well. Looking forward to a new setting, meeting new people, though I will learn from pervious lessons and make sure that never happens again. Looking forward to the snow, which has already started. The beautiful scenery :P. These next three months are going to be crazy, sad, fun, chaotic and all the above.
