We recently went on vacation to the state of Washington! It was awesome and beautiful and I am so happy we went!! I got to visit with my sister and my nephews for a whole week. Kayli cried so much when we had to leave..she actually asked me to give her away to my sister so she could live with them....it totally broke my heart for a second. But then I realized that she just really loves her cousins and wants to see them more. I want to see them more too! My sister is one of my bestest friends! I miss her and them all so much!
Here is all the cousins together while seeing Mt. Saint Helen's! It was insanely gorgeous!! God was definitely showing off here!!
We also celebrated Easter in Washington too! Easter is a personal favorite for me. I love the feeling I get when I think about what Jesus did for me. I am happy to report that my girls know the reason we celebrate Easter too! We do not sit on the Easter bunny's lap...yes we do give baskets of candy...but I won't lie about where it came from. Not that I'm saying if you do these things I am better than you...just personal choices...it takes all kinds to make the world go round! I can't get the pic of us at Easter to come down here..so it's stuck up there:)
That's really all that's been going on here.....some up coming things are that Logan is going to have surgery on the 27th on her right leg. She is having a hamstring release done...she will spend 4-6 weeks in a cast...I am very hopeful at the outcome of the surgery, but we will wait and see!! Also the girls are playing tball. Lou will only be able to play up til her surgery but she loves it more than K does!! She is amazing...I don't know how she does it!! She has to balance herself on her walker while holding the bat and swinging at the ball! She even almost hit it when they pitched it to her!! That girl has a determined heart!! Hmm...whatelse..Oh...The National Spina Bifida Conference is coming to Cincy in June, and I am very excited about it!! Cory and I are volunteers for 2/3 days...
My shoe line is finally coming along. After months of waiting for samples to be made we had to switch factory's.... I will be getting an online store here soon! I am loving that I will be doing this from home!! It still allows me to raise my girls, and make life a little easier for parents/kids with braces to have cute, affordable shoes to wear! This is my goal! I just want something for Logan...I don't care if I make one cent....As long as Logan and kids like her can take their shoes on and off by themselves, and have shoes like other kids their age..then I will have succeeded! It's not to fun that Lou lou is 5 and can't put her shoes on or take them off by herself! And it's not her fault!!
On another note I think I will be writing a post about being a SAHM soon...I have so many feelings on this...and recently I have come across some full time working moms who say "that they could NEVER expect someone like me to understand someone working full time then coming home and doing all the duties a wife/mom has.." all I have to say is "please...get over yourself"!
Also some updated pics coming soon of Liam who is out of the NICU and home now!! He came home at 10 weeks and a whopping 5lbs!! (which is more than Kayli weighed when she came home) I am so happy he is home and doing marvelously BTW!!!!
Anywho....Cory and I are buying a house in the next week...so I am very excited about this!!
What's going on in your life?? I would for you to share!! I feel so out of the loop!! Come on Susan, Lori, Cortney, Trish??? Anyone??? What have ya'll been up to? (I guess I can just read you're blogs to find out too!! ) :) :) :)

~to reflect the image of God
~to seek to please HIM and not me
~to do HIS will and not mine
~to complete the work he gave me to do....
this is becoming my meaning of Life. This is how I hope to live my life.
I am learning to "be content"....that is a hard one for me. They say the grass is always greener...but I say "I am content". It doesn't mean that I am settling. Being content has more to do with loving the Lord with all your heart than, just being okay with your situation. I am loving life more these days than all of last year combined. I am happier this very minute than I can remember being in a long time. I have been ridding my body of toxic things...and filling it with more Holy things.
I am "content".
What is the meaning of your life?? Are you content?

Sometimes I am saddened by the choices I've made
So many tears I have cried
Got what I wanted but the dream seemed to fade
Still feeling unsatisfied...
But you saved me, forgave me
How you've shown
You'd never leave me all alone...Oh Lord
Everytime I lose my place
The beauty of your grace
Shines a light so I can see
Everytime I lose my way
You make it all okay
I feel your love surrounding me
You are here, calming my fears, you lead me back with your sweet song....
You're where I belong
You're always there to guide me
through my mistakes, you've never once left my side
The way you pick me up each time my heart breaks..
The way you always stood by
I'd feel you
You'd move right through my heart
We never really were apart, Oh Lord,
I will always put my faith in you, Cause I know you understand
I will try my best to follow you, cause I know you've got a plan
Just to have you in my life, Is far more than enough
You are everywhere around me now, I can feel your precious love....
