Now that I’m dedicating the time to catch up on blogging, I thought this would be the perfect time to reminisce on this past summer. We thought we’d take advantage of living within a few hours of Red River, NM to go visit the quaint, beautiful town. Little did we know it at the time, but I was about one week pregnant, which explains the constant stops we had to make while “hiking” (how much hiking can you do with two kids under 4 years of age, though, for real?). Everything was so amazing and Shawn and I both cherished every moment – including our chalet, which housed a full kitchen, dining room, living room, and two bedrooms upstairs. We only wished we could have stayed longer!



I know, I know. I’ve have been absent for a while, but many of you already know why! Yup, I’m pregnant! We are so excited for the arrival of our third child in March – Shawn will have (hopefully) returned by then, and his welcome home gift will be a baby boy!

Since we have two girls, and I’ve grown up with two sisters, I have absolutely no idea what to do with a boy. Seriously, it’s going to be so different than anything I’ve had to handle in my life so far. However, I know God has given us such a precious gift and I can’t wait to partner with Shawn in raising him to love Jesus.

Anyway, I’m 18 weeks now, and I’m thoroughly enjoying my second trimester! I’ve never really liked being pregnant, but I’m trying to enjoy this one since it will be our last. And I have nothing to complain about since I’m comfortable and I have energy once again! I also feel the cutest in the second trimester, so I will be posting a lot of pictures in the near future of the fun outfits I’ve bought (most of which aren’t even considered maternity clothing)! So keep your eyes peeled for more blog posts, coming soon!



Whoa. It has been a MINUTE!!! I am so sad I’ve let blogging go down the pooper, but I realize how busy life can get with two toddlers and they’re my top priority. I have a spare minute right now, though, so I thought I’d blog a few pictures of Fletcher’s 2nd birthday.

We were in North Carolina when my youngest daughter turned 2, and I just can’t believe she’s been in this world that long already! I know all of us mothers say that, but until you have a child of your own you never really grasp the brevity of life.

Anyway, this sweet girl of mine is developing into a joyful, happy-go-lucky child. She has such a gentle spirit, and yet she is so playful. I just love the girl she’s becoming!
