OMGosh....where have we gone?

We are still here and still trucking along as a busy little family.  This summer has been a very busy Summer thus far (at least for this busy momma).  Whew!  I promise, promise to post pics and real catch up posts soon.  For now, I am working full time, doing my photography what feels like full time and planning a weekend get-away to Galveston and then a 6 days girls trip for me, the girls and my mom to.....(wait for it).....(wait for it).....San Diego, California.  WAHOO...the girls and I are super excited about this one.

Traveling out of state (Texas) is a big event for our family and not only are we traveling out of state but this time we are flying.  Yep.....the girls can't wait to fly since they have never flown (that they can remember anyway).  My mom travels a lot for work and is always calling me from her road trip telling me how beautiful the place was and how she wished we were there to see it.  So....this time she tells me that she is planning a trip to California and I jumped on the waggon.  It was a hard choice and decision because we are trying to save money for out Disney World Trip next Summer but between her work paying for the hotel and rental car and us pulling together some flight points, and me putting myself on a strict budget while there....we are making it work.  YAHOO...a girls trip to Cali in early August....here we come.  :o)

Hayden's 1st Birthday

Hayden had a mini party in her daycare class on Thursday.  It was too darn cute!  We put hats on the babies and sang happy birthday.  BUT...only Hayden got a cupcake...her first take of cupcake and she L-O-V-E-D It.  :o)

For her party at home we had a lot of family and friends over for a pools party and it was a great party.  A little warm out but this is June in Texas, so we fully expected that.  :o)  She had her punk princess themed party and we all loved the cake.  It was so pretty and YUMMY!

Hayden's turning ONE!

My baby girl will be one in two days and I will be throwing my last First Birthday Party this weekend.  I can't believe it...I just can't.  Looking back...I can remember the shock of finding out that we were pregnant with her, then before having her wondering how our life would be after we have her, and now....a year later.....I can't imagine life without her.  I seriously can't.  I don't even remember what life was like before her.  She has been such a wonderful blessing to this family.  We all adore and love Miss Hayden. 

Here are a few photos that I got of her for her 1st birthday.  Since we have done so many cutesy parties....we have decided to make this one a bit different.  She will be having a punk princes 1st birthday party...girly skull and cross bones and hot pink and black.

Sole Impact 2011

For the past few weeks, Skyler (along with her BFF Hannah) has been part of a great organization for girls 6-15yrs old, called "Sole Impact". She attends two meetings a week where they cover eating healthy, living healthy, the importance of exercise, maintaining a healthy, smoke and drug free life style, self confidence, self esteem building, empower girls to be leaders in our community, raising money for cancer research, all of that on top of various exercises and running 1-2 miles each meeting.

Their slogan "I am one young voice, but I can change the world" is an important message that she is learning. She finished this season with a 2 mile "Tulip Trot" at Market Street in The Woodlands.  She did an amazing job running almost the entire thing.  We held signs and cheered her on as she passed us about 5 times along the way.  We could not be more proud of her for being part of this wonderful organization and completing the race.
