Love Love

THIS little girl!  She is so much fun and full of energy. She has quite the personality and is a social butterfly.  Updates to come on her birthday bashes. I can't believe I have a 1 year old.

So I talked to Sean the other night and mentioned to him about writing a post about some changes in our family.  I am not so sure how to put it or what to really say, so to just lay it out there Sean is no longer working for the Buckle.  This has been super difficult on our family because we feel like a piece of us died. I also feel like we are back a square one.  We have been with Buckle for about 4 years since we got married and it is really of we have known.  We thought that Sean would move up in the company and we relied on it for many things.  Example buying clothes at 40% off, them paying our entire insurance premium, getting an annual bonus, monthly bonuses and more.  We don't really want to go into detail because we are sick of talking about it and if you want to know call Sean.  In short, he was treated poorly and done dirty.  We don't want to talk negative about Buckle because we love it, but things don't always turn out the way you want them. This happened on Friday, April 1st and no it wasn't an April fools joke. I wish though.
Over the years Sean has networked and had several opportunities and decided to work for a friend hopefully soon managing one of their stores.  He started that next Tuesday so we really didn't skip a beat.  We feel as though this has actually been a blessing because now he can finish his education and realize how important it is.  Also he gets to be home more which we love of course.  It is crazy how life changes so fast. I look back a year ago and it was so different not necessary in a good or bad way just different.  One thing I am grateful for is our Heavenly Father and how he watches over us and that if we are doing our PART, then he will step in and bless us.

Colten's Bday Party

So the night before my sister's wedding rehearsal my nephew Colton had a birthday party.  It was a cool little place with 6 or 7 little blown up slides.  Lylah had fun in the little kiddie one and I had fun in the kid one! haha  I am pretty sure I wasn't suppose to go on the but my niece just insisted that I got with her. Then my sister and I wanted to act like kids again and went down together. Ooohhhh suck rebels. It was great besides that fact that I forgot to raise my arms the 1st time and burned my elbow, that little sucker hurt. I love getting to spend time with my family and we always have so much fun.  Cindy did a great job throwing the party!

Continuation of wedding

Ok so I don't have any pics from the wedding on my camera, but just go to my Facebook if you really want to see them!

My sister did everything very traditional so we had a rehearsal with a dinner afterward, well more like a BBQ. A ton of Brandon's family came from Georgia so there were about 30 of us total.  It was a great time with everyone and Lylah had everyone cracking up.  She is a silly girl and would growl like a tiger at them. She scored major brownie points with me at the BBQ because she gave me kisses.  Anytime I ask her she just acts like she has no idea what I am saying well not that night.  I think she knew everyone was watching!! He had some friends that also came and it was fun chatting about our kids and the things they do.  I think I was chasing Lylah around most of the time, but I still had a great time. 

Sean wasn't able to come because of work and we sure did miss him.  More like I stressed hard core.  I always want things to be perfect and I didn't want anyone else to have the responsibility of watching her, but it all worked out great and she was a great little girl.

Samantha's Wedding

On March 19 my sister and Brandon got married!! YAY!! I am so excited for them, they are so happy and in love.  They met while he was stationed in Wichita Falls going to tech school. For of those of you who don't know what that is it is the step after basic training I think.  They dated while he was there and then he got stationed somewhere on the East Coast and now he is stationed in Japan.  My sister has done so well with him being gone, but it has been hard because she knows that Timber (my niece) , her dad won't allow her to move to Japan so, therefore, my sister can't go. But, when they got back from their honeymoon Timber's dad sat down and talked with them and is letting them move to Japan.  I am so happy that she gets to move and be with her husband, but I am going to miss her terribly.  They will be stationed there for 4 years.  I get sad because I think about when she has another baby, I won't be there or for birthdays and what not.  If you know much about me then you know that I grew up in a small town and didn't really see much of the world until I moved to Utah. Well let's just say my sister hasn't seen much of the world until Brandon and I love that.  I love that she gets to experience different cultures and see the world and that is what she is going to do being a military wife.  I am going to miss all three of them, but so happy because the are just a perfect little family!! I love you sister, you are my best friend. Pictures to come sorry

iPad = laziness

So I realized tonight just how lazy I have gotten with having an iPad in our home. For one i never go up stairs anymore to get on the computer because I can get on the Internet just chillin on the couch or in bed. The bad thing about not going upstairs is that I never upload photos which leads to never posting on our blog. I know ridiculous, huh? I mean get on my blog everyday to see who has updated theirs and what not. My goal is to get a blog and put pics of some things we have done lately within the next two days so stay tuned and I will try not to disappoint.
