Time is just a flying....

It has been awhile since my last post because life has been super crazy with Clint working in the oil field, (YES, working!! Such a blessing that he found a job about 4 months ago but he has to be gone alot), hosting baby showers, wedding showers/weddings, Emma's dance class, school and my marathon training. This heat is making it all pretty hard! I have one thing to say, "I have LOTS of respect for single moms because this is NOT easy job by myself!" I miss Clint so much and feel pretty alone at times but our families have been so great with helping out but its hard at night because my best friend and hubby is gone and its just not the same talking on the phone or computer but the computer really helps Emma with missing her daddy. I hope the the distance is only temperary but hopeful the job is long term!

On another note Emma started school this week and it has gone GREAT! She loved it and the teacher even said that Emma is setting the bar high for class this year because she communicates so well, yes I am a proud mommy!

Busy weekend with weddings and baby showers (I will post pictures of my work)one day I will be paid for it all!! ;)

Times are a changing...

Good News and Bad News to report... Good News First: Clint headed to Midland last Thursday to start a new job on Friday but Bad News: He will be out of town 2-3 weeks at a time. We are missing him terribly but so proud of him!! We have gotten Apple computers so that we can start iChatting and Emma can talk and see her daddy. It is really hard doing everything alone but it can only get easier (atleast that is what I keep telling myself, right?!?!)
HAPPY note... we have started our garden again this year and Emma has already gotten to eat her first strawberry off of it last night. She is getting so big and SO SMART!!
She has already had her first Easter Egg Hunt to practice with it...
God is GOOD!!

2nd Birthday and NYC Marathon Here I come!

Emma's 2nd Birthday went great! I was worried about the weather but it all turned out great!! I have attached a couple pictures from the day. Also, I am SO... excited to be telling ya'll this because it has been a long time goal/dream of mine to run a marathon in NYC. I am gonna do it this year!! I am planning to participate in the NYC Marathon on November 6, 2011. Also, with the large amount of people that want to participate in this race, it makes it extremely difficult to be picked from the lottery in April. With that said, I have decided to participate with the charity, Team for Kids. I have picked this charity because I was a child that struggled with being overweight and anything that I can do to make a difference in my child’s life or another is all worth it!!
No donation is too small so please take a look at my donation link below.
Thanks again for the support!

Holidays... behind us and know onto the months of Birthdays!!

Christmas and New Years was nice but really ready to go skiing for the Holidays so we don't have to do all the cooking and cleaning. I am hoping that next year we will be on the mountain skiing and playing in the snow. Emma had a great Christmas and really got the idea of the reasons for Christmas... example: she called the wise men "the guys and Jesus" and she was really said when we had to put all the Christmas stuff away. She liked Santa as well!

This month kicks of LOTS of birthdays - my mother-in-law and her husband, my brother, my father and myself and Emma's 2nd birthday on the 6th Super Bowl Sunday! I am planning to make her a dalmatian cake that looks like the one below...

Big plans for the weekend... concert and dinner for Bo's birthday tonight, Stock Show Parade and the twins 2nd birthday party Saturday evening and hopefully taking it easy on Sunday after church.

I am pretty excited because I have been asked to represent my office at a luncheon in Austin and accept our award for being one of the "Best Companies to Work for in Texas". I have been with the firm for 4 years on the 29th and have always wanted to go to this event. There are about 10 of us attending and it should be fun!
