It's been a while...

I really hope to update this blog more... especially now that I am not working! I need to find things to keep me busy so I don't go stir crazy and get another job... lol!! (seriously though.)

This week has been a rough one. On Monday we thought we were having a 4th child already... and Tuesday our world changed quickly when we discovered the baby was no longer alive. It's been hard, even though it was unexpected... we really started to love the idea of another baby coming.

I had a d&c yesterday and slept all day today, thanks to my friends! Danny mentioned to me when this all happened, that maybe "we are supposed to be learning something from this"... obviously he is correct, as the Lord usually works that way. One thing I have learned for sure, is the amazing friends I have! I have been brought to tears over there willingness to take my kids for the day, or bring dinner, or come over with girl movies and goodies, etc... the list goes on and on! I have also learned how much more I need to be there for my friends. I want to be that kind of friend too. I love you girls, thank you for making life not so hard sometimes.

Memorial Day

Over the past few years, my brother Brady and I have made a "tradition" somewhat, to go with our families on Memorial Day to visit our Grandpa's grave site. This year my sister Mallory joined us too! He served as a pilot in WWII and we feel it's a perfect time to remember him as well as my Grandma on this day. Thanks Carlie for the flowers! You never miss the important details that I ALWAYS forget. =)

After the visiting the grave site, we went to my sister Lindsay's house to celebrate Maddie turning 3. We swam and ate... and Merrick had a blast with Daddy, shooting hoops!

I love his face in the one below. Totally trying his HARDEST to get the basketball in the hoop. You can see it right on his face like, "come on, come one... I got it!" I love it! He would clap "yeah" every time he got it in the hoop. He LOVES balls. If he can throw it, it's a ball. He grabs magnets off the fridge and says "ball" and then chucks it across my kitchen. To him, if he can throw it, then it's a BALL. LOL

Lily's preschool Graduation

Lily graduated from preschool this past week! Super cute, and kind of funny. It was nice, Danny was able to take off work that morning to come see his oldest child "graduate preschool". LOL. Grandma Standifird was even there! Lily was very excited about that.

On to the next stage of your life Lilybug.

I can't believe she is 5, and going to kindergarten already. WOW, how fast time passes.

Ms. Amy and Ms. Sherry do such a great job! Lily loved them both sooooo much.
I'm excited that Macy will be going to Ms. Amy next year... she goes above and beyond on everything for those kids. Truly amazing!

Here is Lily and her friend Abby. So cute!
Thanks Amy and Sherry for taking such great care of Lily and teaching her so much!

Macy's Tinkerfairy Birthday

Happy Birthday Macy!

Over the weekend we had a Tinker-Fairy birthday party for our Macy Kate. She turned 4 on May 3rd... can't believe how fast she is growing up! We had all of our family over for pizza, ice-cream, and cupcakes... Yum, Yum!

All the little girlies dressed up as fairy's and princess's and had "pixie dust" put on their cheekies as they came in to the party... it was a sight to see!

Macy was so excited to be "Tinkerbell", as that is her favorite fairy! She takes after her mother as you can see... by all my Tinkerbell figurines. =)

Macy is wearing her special Tinkerbell tutu from La Bebe Boutique. La Bebe Boutique has dozens of tutu's for any style, age, or occasion.
You can also have a tutu "customized" for a special occasion or just to make to your exact specifications.

Macy's clippies are from, custom made green for her "Tink" outfit. You can have your own MacyMae, "clippie with a grippie", custom made for any occasion too! They are so fun, and best part is- you will still have your MacyMae Clippies at the end of the day since they have their unique "no slip" grips.

Hi everyone! I just wanted to quickly update all of you on La Bebe's current special:

All Funky Bums T-shirts are on sale this week. Normally $26, down to $18 through May 3rd.

These T's are so fun, funky, and cool. They are such a nice change from your normal baby blue/teddy bear look for boys! I personally chose to add Funky Bums to our line at LA Bebe Boutique because as you all know I have a boy and find it very frustrating to shop for him. I don't like the "cutesy", "animal/character" look for Merrick. I am very picky about what he wears. That is the biggest reason I had to carry this line for boys!

Merrick has all 4 of the styles, yes- I couldn't help myself! LOL. So now you can enjoy them for you little man too, at a great price! They run from 6-12 months to 4T.

Check them out at La Bebe Boutique:

Also while you are on the site, check out my blog. If you subscribe to La Bebe Blog, you will be notified about specials, huge discounts, new products AND.... FREE GIVEAWAYS! Yes, you heard it, free giveaways!

Starting this week I will be posting a free giveaway every week! So make sure you subscribe so you can enter the contests.

Hope you had a great weekend,

Jesus Christ

I wanted to share this video with everyone. It truly reminds me of the sacrifice the my Savior, Jesus Christ, made for me. I hope this Easter we all will be reminded of the love that Jesus Christ has for each of us, and always strive to love others as he would.
