Long time no blog.

Its been forever since I last blogged! Izzy has grown so quickly! Shes cruising around furniture, pointing, and calling me Mama (I LOVE IT!!). I cant believe she will be 1 in a little over a month. What an incredible gift she is. Caleb is growing up really fast. Hes no longer a little boy, he is definitely a big boy! He says the funniest things and half the things that come out of his mouth amaze me. This kid is a sponge. I think,"Where did he learn/hear that?!" Although most moms think the same of their kids, I think hes pretty much a genius! =) He starts Pre-K in the fall and thinks he will be riding the big bus to school. He has changed so much since we moved back to San Antonio and for the better. It has been so good for him to be here and around my parents and out of the situation we were in before coming here.

Heres some pics of my beautiful treasures!

Christmas 08

Friday, December 5, 2008


I have a wonderful 4-day weekend due to the ski trip my office is on. Boo. Its been really nice though. I miss being able to stay home with my kids and this has been a wonderful time being home with them. Im cleaning, organizing, and making chili (its so cold outside) while Caleb is at school and Izzy is sleeping. I will miss this when I have to go back to work on Monday. Luckily, Christmas and New Years are coming up and with it, more time off. ;)

Here He comes to save the day!!

Recently, I've been struck with a dilemma. My parents, who care for my kids while I work, are going to be out of the country for a month starting a week from Monday. I have needed to find childcare for the kids but a lack of money has been a huge issue for me. My desire has been to find someone who could come to my home and take care of my kids here. I also preferred that there be no other kids to have to watch so mine can be the focus as they are a handful. Caleb goes to MDO 2 days a week and I needed that person to be able to take and pick him up. We found a sweet lady who can do all this but the cost was just too much for me, almost my entire paycheck for a month. Sooooo, this last Tues., God led someone to give me a check. Such a huge blessing!! I still needed more to be able to pay for this childcare. Today, I checked my mail and received a HUGE check for the remainder of the amount that I need to pay for childcare. God provided the exact amount I need.

God is good, ALL THE TIME!

Isabeau's Half Birthday

Today Isabeau turned 6 months! I cannot believe it. Time truly flies by. What an amazing gift God gave us in her.

My brother and his family were visiting from Oklahoma and we spent the day at the Riverwalk. I have been wanting to get Izzy's ears pierced for quite some time and we decided to do it at the mall today. Aunt Sheila got her ears pierced for her half birthday. She did soooo great. She didnt really like the fact that the lady was trying to keep her still to mark her ears. Then, super quickly, the lady pierced her ears, both in a flash. She cried for about a minute and then all was well. She was just fine and dandy. She really is a great baby! Here are some pics, before and after.

Long time no blog!

We are finally settled (kinda) here in San Antonio. Its been crazy. Single-parenting is not an easy undertaking and I feel like I am somewhat getting the hang of it. My new job is going well. Its so different going from being a stay-at-home mom to working full-time again outside the home. It sucks missing this time with Isabeau but I am making the best of it. She is growing so much and is the sweetest baby! Caleb was the BEST baby and I was always told the next would be the opposite. WRONG! Isabeau has been an amazing baby and for that I am so grateful, especially with all we have been going through. Caleb is doing great as well. He loves his new MDO and loves going to church Monday and Tuesday nights while I attend Bible studys. They both stay with my mom while I am at work and Caleb loves staying with his "Yaya". She is so great with them and that has made leaving them a bit easier. Here are some pics and an adorable video of Caleb making Izzy laugh. Enjoy!
