Busy Little Bees

It's been a bit since I posted anything because it's been quite busy around here as of late. We've had a lot of good things happen, keeping us all busy as a family. I love having things to do, but I easily get distracted when I have time to blog, by doing things around the house. I've been slacking so I am sorry for not keeping up! :)

I had a chance to take some ME time, which a mom of 3 doesn't happen too often. Although, when it does, it feels great! I got my hair done and trimmed up a little bit too. I love my highlights!! I had all dark brown hair before the highlights and needed a little umpf put back into my style!

 See for yourself. It's been a while since I did anything durastic to my hair, (read: 5 years ago) and I had some subtle highlights in more recently but not like these! I am currently growing my hair out and I really like how it seems to be growing with the very light layers towards the bottom. Nice to feel more than just a mom and more like a Lady. Just nice to take care of myself a little better.

Hannah our oldest is in Girl Scouts and is a Brownie. We had her first booth of the year last weekend. Saturday they sold 70 boxes at a local Walgreens. They took pity on us, and let us set up inside, thankfully, because the wind and cold weather was horrible. It was pretty steady during the 3 hrs Hannah was there and she had a good time.

Emma our middle daughter had a birthday party to attend and I had a great time watching her having so much fun! I also got to have some Adult talk with other mom's which, if you're a mom of a small kid, you know how nice it is to talk with another adult after a week of talking with a 3 yr old. It was a lovely change and I really enjoyed it. Emma had a great time seeing friends from school, that she didn't usually see on a weekend.
They both had Cheer last weekend as well. They cheer for a local family center and really like it. They go to the basketball games there and cheer indoors. I love them being indoors, because it really helps with the nasty colds that have been floating around the kids at school. I don't have to battle the wet and rain on top of those colds. The girls have started to make friends with some of the girls there, which is nice. The girl's took photos last week and I hope to get them soon! I will definitely post them on here, to share with you.

This week, I've been doing a lot of just general running around, nothing out of the usual. I get to help out in Emma's classes every other Thursday. This week, they are participating in a Penny War. Where students of the class bring in Pennies for their own bucket, and then bring in Silver coins for other classes buckets. The Silver is then added up, and they take that out amount out of their pennies. My Emma has been so driven to find any pennies that might be laying around, that I thought I would surprise her and bring in $20 of rolled pennies. She was so excited! Hopefully tomorrow, they will bring in enough silver, to bomb the other classes.

The money is all being donated to a great great cause. Honor Flight of Northwest Ohio. This organization makes it possible, through donations, to fly Veterans of Northwest Ohio, fly down to see their war memorial. For Free! It's a great cause, and these kids will make the day of a veteran or two! Tomorrow I get to go back and help kids tie off some, tie off blankets that are being given to a local organization called The Mustard Seed. They help lower income people, with a number of things and items. These kids will have a blast tomorrow.

My husband Eric, has been blessed with an opportunity to "test run" a Manager Position at the employer he is at right now. It's a great chance for him to become a manager, and only about a month into him even working there. It's very awesome of them to let him do a test run to see if it's something he is interested in. I think he will do fine and success will come to him very quickly in this position. He is a very passionate person, and knows that God is playing a large role in his life. Especially after answering our prayers for this job to begin with. He's learning to work for God instead of working for himself. It's really awesome to see him transform as a new Man. I am really blessed and lucky to have him as a husband. He is a hardworking individual and I love him very much. Our daughters have a great Dad who loves them very much. I am so glad the Lord has placed him in my life.

This weekend we are going to have another game to cheer, and a little bit of running around. I unfortunately am going to miss a church sale I wanted to go to, but my sister in law is going to look around for me, since Lilly has been growing like a weed! Lilly went to a Well Check and is 40 lbs and 40 inches tall! Square and lean. Growing like crazy! Before I know it, it will be her 4th birthday! What am I going to do?
I heard her singing along with Building 429's -Where I belong in the car the other day. I love it when small things like her singing along with songs, make my day. I think that KLove is wearing on the girls, and I much rather them sing songs about Jesus and our faith, than songs about stuff grown adults talk about and do. Hannah is starting to learn some of the songs and even searched for one of the songs tonight just to listen to. Love the great things KLove's music is doing in my family!
