goodbye's and summertime activities

so we have had our share of goodbyes lately. :(

last week we said goodbye to grandma d....

and last night we said goodbye to chad's sister jess and her family as they are moving to arizona. we will miss them! but as dr. suess says "don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." and we are SO thankful for all the times spent with our family, near and far. we are TRULY blessed to have a loving supportive family on both sides. WE LOVE YOU ALL!

enough sappy-ness i would say... here is a couple pics of yesterday morning which seems to be a regular thing in my house these days - the girls playing Mario Kart Wii! Riley is quite the little racer... she can beat me no problem and has been known to beat Chad on occasion too. It's a fun thing to play as a family too.

finally a blogger

so i finally started a blog.... we shall see if this is a passing phase for me or not. my goals for this blog is to keep an online journal (since i'm online all the time anyway) of what's going on in my life. my kids are growing fast and i want to remember more of the day to day stuff they do and say. we also are about to move to a new house and i would like to keep track of the things we do to change it to make it "our home." also if i ever get back into the habit of scrapbooking and stamping cards/projects regularly (and have to time to upload pictures of all this!) then i will add that too. so here it is... my life and what i {heart}
