i'm going to be in trouble one day...

...for posting these pictures!!

Can't you just see these in Austin's highschool Senior year slideshow?

Oh, and don't forget to notice his shoes!

My poor dad...
he should have known that I would be plastering this up on my blog!

Mikayla has brought "dress up" to a whole new meaning these last few days. My sister got her a box full of dress up clothes for Christmas and she has been really into it lately. Every 15 minutes she's in a new outfit. Next time this happens I will have to take pictures with every change of clothes. She's going to do well at hosting an awards show one day with all of the quick wardrobe changes she makes!

Here's a cute one from Christmas Eve.

Hope you all had a great weekend!!

you haven't given up on me have you?

It's been 30 days since I've blogged last....30 DAYS!!!

That's one month.

One month without a single word from someone who usually has a lot to say!

Did you miss me?

Even just a tiny bit?

I suppose I just needed that little break after the New Year to get some priorities straight, but have no fear I haven't given up on blogging forever!!

So, what's with being absent, you might ask? Mostly it's because I just wasn't in the mood (I experienced a little bit of the post-holiday blues.) But, one HUGE reason is we have decided to put our house on the market! For the last 2 weeks we have been busy getting our house ready - inside and out - to show off to any potential buyers. It became "official" as of yesterday. We decided that it was time to start looking for something a little bit bigger to spread out. We LOVE our house, so it's bittersweet. I have faith that there will be the right house for us to again call "home" and the right buyers will take great care of our first little home we've had for 5 1/2 years.

These might be the only recent pictures I've taken of the kids this month (except for our trip to Great Wolf Lodge - coming soon!) and the first time they've gotten to play outside in months...even if it was for only 15 minutes. Look how happy they are to play with sticks!
{See our "for sale" sign?!}
Stay with me! I'll be back to share more...promise!

P.S. I have 972 unread messages in my Google Reader.
I have a feeling I'm going to have a hard time catching up!
