Busy, Busy, Busy

So I haven't been around the blogging world lately. That would be because last week and the coming week have been crazy busy. Truth is, more busy than I like to be.

This is mostly because of my husband and his volleyball team's schedule. We will have only one evening at home this coming week and it was the same last week. As much as I love how much he enjoys coaching, I don't love how much time we spend apart. I come to most of the home games, but I miss most of the away games.

On the nights that Caleb is away, I've seen a small glimpse of what it must be like to be a single mom. I must say, I have A LOT of respect for single mom's. I don't know how they do it.

We just spent the weekend out of town for a volleyball tournament. Elliana came too and the team just LOVED her! I think she enjoyed being around all of them too. She kept them entertained. She is such a ham! It's so much fun to watch her experience all of this for the first time.

I don't think she understood or even cared why we were there, she was just upset that she couldn't crawl around and move all over the place. Even though she wasn't crazy about being confined to the bleachers, I was impressed by how well she did. She is SUCH a trooper! Somehow, we even got a nap in. I think she has no idea that she better get used to this because we are going to be part of this world for a long time.

I'm looking forward to the week after next. Things should slow down (a little) by then. We'll still be in the midst of the volleyball season but the scheduled isn't nearly as crazy. Then I'll have some time to do the things that I love like cooking and eating dinner as a family, blogging :), and spending evenings together at home.

Your fall is my winter. I so appreciate our 2-parent household after Jon's put in 12-hour shifts.

Happy life will slow down in a couple weeks for you!

You forgot that you're looking forward to spending more time with your sisters too! =)
Did Caleb watch the game?

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.

We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
