Long time, no post....

Well, I am LOVING stay at home with my kiddos.... I have been able to get alot of stuff done and hubby and I were able to go to Ry's stick horse rodeo...the girls have started playing softball and are doing really great. Doodle is home now and working in Beaumont, hopefully he will not have to travel anymore. He went on an interview yesterday for a company where he would actually work for the company and not a contractor. STABILITY!!! Well, I know this is a short post, but I need to get up and get busy around here...I am going to have lunch with some girls I used to work with, get my hair cut and get my truck inspected....busy day! Have a great one!!

It's Official

Well, today I officially became a stay at home mom. I am really looking forward to this opportunity. This is something that is going to be completely new to me due to the fact that I have ALWAYS worked. I know to some people, this might not seem like the right time to be quitting a job with the economy being like it is, but for me and my family, I feel like it is the right decision for us. Next week is Spring Break for the girls and this will be the first one that I have been able to be off with them. We don't have alot of plans except to declutter bedrooms, go get our nails/toes done and hopefully go and take pictures in the bluebonnets if the weather cooperates, nt to mention softball practice. Yep, tomorrow is the start of softball season. We have to be at the middle school for opening ceremonies at 7:30 in the morning....on a Saturday....YUCK! The games have been cancelled due to the weather, so we basically have to go up there for a bake sale. Each team has to auction off a cake for a fundraiser type of thing. Hopefully I will get some good pics that I can post later tomorrow... In the meantime, I need to figure out how to get this blog to show up online. I am not that computer literate, but I am learning. :)

A New Beginning

Hello are probably wondering the reasons for me to start a blog...I mean really, my life is not THAT exciting. The reason that I decided to start this is so that family and friends can keep up with what is going on in our little lives and also to be able to look back and to sort of keep a diary of things that went on. My girls are growing up so fast and it is hard to remember everything. Plus, I just got this new computer and I needed some sort of reason other than "to pay bills" to get it.. ha ha!! Not to mention, somehow I came across Angie Smith's blog and I have been hooked ever since. Reading other peoples blogs is interesting to me. Through another blog, I came across a blog for a girl that I grew up who now lives in Florida. How weird is that??

Seriously, this is kind of a "new beginning" per say for me. I have given my notice at work and will officially be a "stay at home" mom. This is something that I have NEVER done before. I have always worked. But, my husband works out of state alot and this will give us the chance to be together more during the summer. The girls and I plan to travel with him this summer if he has to be gone. We are really looking forward to that. Well, I guess that I will end by first post here with a few pictures of our girls.

The theme was "It's a Small World" and Ry's class was representing Australia.

Here is a pic of Kristyn at one of her basketball games. She really enjoys playing and is actually pretty good. Too much running involved if you ask me..
