I miss blogging. It's as close to journaling that i will ever get!!!!

I realized that I am about a year out from really blogging about my family.  I am not sure if anyone really even reads blogs any more.  I don't because when I switched to a tablet, I got out of the habit.  I couldn't find an easy blogging or blog reading app. I am determinde to do it again.  It is the closest to a journal that I get.  I enjoy tradional scrapbooking with my photos, but this is a fun digital way to watch my family age, get older and older and wait.  I need to go to my happy place.  

So, I guess I will do an update on whole famdamly. 

Becca is now a senior in high school.  I know, right? Holy crappola!!!! I am too young for this stuff. She is on her 3rd year of the drill team. She is an officer . . . the drill mistress. Doesn't that sound horrid? 

She also gets great grades in honors classes while working at a pizza place and keeping up with a social life!!  She is super amazing.  I hope this year treats her well ;0)

Sassi Cassi is a junior now.  She is still dancing at the same place she started when she was 3.  I love this sequence of her flipping over at her last recital, so pretty.  

 and I liked this one, too.

 Anyways, it is crazy that my little babies are not so little anymore.  Cassi is also working and getting fabulous grade while taking honors classes.  

James is a hoot and a half.  He has done a little of everything.  He is still involved with music, 
he is a percussionist and he participated with a local youth symphony.  He was also in the school play.  
 Can't he rock eyeliner?  
And a giant napkin?    

Can you guess the play?  

He has not started his summer yet, though.  He is in a summer camp that he is gone all day.  But he has learned to fly airplanes, well simulators.  He is now working with a 3-D printer.  And up coming will be robotics.  Poor thing gets up so early.  (I am blocking out the fact that they moved our 9th grade into the high school and I will have 3 kids in high school.  AHHHHHH)

Annie is super into crafts.    She will be starting jr. high.  It seems like just last week that I was pregnant with her and thinking that she will be in elementary school with Becca, Cassi and James.  Well, that was a long time ago.  

She is counting down the seconds right now until I finish this blog post so we can go to Micheals.  That girl lives for craft stores.  She even has her own youtube channel where she has videos explaining how-to do crafts. 

She is also the best big sister these girls could ask for :0)

Jason is in 5th grade going on a senior in college.  He remembers everything and is super smart at things also.  He loves facts.  He also loves to correct me, especially with my word crimes!!!

Apperently he likes to pose for photos with his mouth open, hee hee. 

Mia is going to be in 3rd grade is quite the little fire cracker.  She is so much fun!!!

 She is our resident photo bomber.  She loves photos and gets in them how ever she can.  I got an iphone and these are the first photos on it . . . 

Selfie central ;0)

Elly is a sweet little stink.  She is going into the 2nd grade.  

She loves friends and cousins.  She is a social butterfly, sometimes too much!!!!!

Jonah is a crazy little dude.  He went for a ride on the outside of an escalator at the airport yesterday.  He is super friendly, he will talk and hangout with anyone, and fall in love with lots of girls.  

Maybe one of these days, he will figure our how old he is!!!!!!!

Josh is well, Josh.

He is super happy and energetic.  He likes things how they are supposed to be.  He is starting kindergarten and he can count to over 60.  He is also enjoying memorizing books right now.  

Ok, so there you have an update on my rugrats.  We are doing amazing and we hope you are all doing amazing also.

Talk about a cute couple!

Sometimes marriage just has to be fun.  John found this online.  It is some cute texts from a couple.  Some people are just so dang funny.  

I Can Sum Up Marriage In These 11 Texts I've Sent My Husband

woman texting
Our text messages say a lot about our marriage.
While scrolling through my phone and reading the text exchange between my husband and I, I see a love story.
No, I don't see a bunch of X's, O's and lovey dovey emoticons. But I do see mistakes, arguments, parenting advice and venting sessions. I see two people navigating this life together. I see a parenting partner. I see a best friend. I see a union that thrives on a healthy dose of sarcasm. 
When I read our text messages, I see a real marriage
And I laugh. 
1. This may be the most truthful text message I've ever sent my husband, but honesty is key in a successful relationship.
2. Not only does my husband go grocery shopping, but he always takes the time to carefully and considerately explain life's greatest mysteries to me.
3. Communication is the lifeline of any marriage. I want to personally thank the inventor of text messaging for keeping ours together.
4. Communication via text is wonderful, but sometimes we still need to pick up the phone for a personal exchange or just to hear our spouse's voice. Oh, and to make sure they know when to do what they need to do.
5. It's a common misconception that the little weak lady needs to first consult with the big strong man when handling business. My husband often reminds me that I can do things on my own. Thanks for nudging me towards independence, honey.
6. Sure, he thinks I'm a beautiful and amazing woman, but I know the difference between a sincere compliment and a "I need sex" compliment. Even through text.
7. It's the story of our lives, isn't it, ladies? They don't hear a word we say if it doesn't involve the words, "Get naked now."
8. Sometimes I think he messes things up on purpose so I won't ask him to do them again. It's actually pretty genius. That's why I kept running the golf cart into bushes the last time he invited me to play 18.
9. The way to a man's heart is through his stomach. And the way to mine is if I don't have to cook.
10. Firmly letting your better half know that he needs to back off is acceptable.
11. This. You know you've got a good one when he tries to console you and then volunteers to be your PMS punching bag.
