I know, I know, it's been so long. Honestly, I just haven't wanted to update the blog. My laziness got the best of me. Alright, anyone who knows me, I'm not lazy! But, I have needed to put priorities in order this last couple weeks.

We were house sitting at my moms two weeks ago for a whole week. In doing so, I was also helping out my nephew who was living with them. He needed rides to work, etc. I love hanging out at my moms, but living there for 7 days is not fun. It really took a toll on our family. Who can relax when your 2 year old is faster than your reflexes?! Gavin is into everything. We were so blessing to have Brooklyn first. She is so sweet, patient, obedient, loving, and the list goes on. Gavin is most of those things (minus the obedience!). Anyway, it was just a hassle being away from our Gavin proof house for the week.

This last week has been recovery week. Still busy as can be, but laying low at the same time.

It's so hard to believe Gavin will be 2 on Monday. He is starting to talk so much. He makes us laugh everyday. He'll repeat words all the time, is favorite thing to say is: "Holy Crap" I know, I know, he got it from me. I'm having a hard time trying to stop him. He'll see something and say that, then "Bookin, comin see!" (Brooklyn come and see) How can you not giggle a little? It will come back and haunt me someday.

Brooklyn's big news that has happened recently is; she got a perm. It took pictures throughout the procedure of course. Take a look at a couple.

I just wanted to get this loose wave in her hair. It finally stays curly when we curl it now. Yippee! Gavin wanted to be in the picture when he saw me posing Brooklyn, so of course, we had to let the little brother in the picture. He even got his hair styled a few minutes earlier cause he was feeling left out. She's so patient!

Well, I'll try really hard not to let so much time pass before the next update. Check back regularly!

Love to all-

It sounds like you've been very busy! I bet it's nice to be back in your own space. The perm looks like it turned out great. How fun that Gavin likes his picture taken too. You could dress them up in all sorts of outfits and have a little model shoot. I bet they would both be hams! It's good to hear from you again. Keep the posts coming! :)
