Catching Up...

What have we been up to? Well mainly nothing exciting except enjoying our new addition to the family a.k.a. Emmitt (our new Boston Terrier dog) and working ALOT! All in all it has been an enjoyable last few weeks of summer, we are now ready for some cooler weather and everything else fall related. I guess since the last time I blogged several things have happened, my little Elizabeth turned a year old...CRAZY to me, it's still hard for me to believe! She had a precious little birthday party with a friend of her who turned one a week after her. There are a few pictures of her enjoying her birthday cupcakes at her party, it was absolutely adorable watching her enjoy her cupcake and her birthday!

All the girls have gone back to school now and are loving it. Maggie started real school this year, well at least 3 days a week to Abilene Christian in Pre-K. She is acting so big lately I guess school is really turning her into a big almost 5 year old. While Claire & Elizabeth started back at their mother's day out, 2 days a week, this is Elizabeth's first time at school ever and I have to admit it was sad to see her go off to school even if it was only 2 days a week and it has taken me a little time to get used to! I know she is doing great, having fun, and I still see her most days so I really can't complain too much, it just seems like she has grown up in a flash of a second and its crazy to see.

In addition to birthdays and going back to school is two family members that have recently gotten engaged that we are SO happy for!! Jake's brother, Josh & his girlfriend, Dani recently gotten engaged on Labor day and are planning a wedding for early fall of 2011 and we are so happy for them! While my cousin Hannah and her boyfriend, Justin also recently got engaged last week and are planning an early summer 2011 wedding. Congratulations to both of them, we are so happy for ya'll!! I'm having alot of fun helping plan with them already and look forward to more wedding festivites, weddings are absolutely the best!
