Wow its been awhile!
The number of kiddos in our family has doubled since I last posted!
And we have moved from Davenport, Iowa, to Seattle, to Houston, and now we are settled in Dallas.
So much has happened and changed since I last wrote.
Ben and I have learned a lot about ourselves and what really matters the last few years. It has been a time of trial, but also a time filled with many blessings...including the additions of Scarlett and Jocelyn to our family.
Overall life is good. Nothing is as constant as change, right? And during the hardest days I know I'm being cared for and helped by angels. And I know miracles happen all the time. I'm feeling very grateful for the love and help given to me and my family!
A lot of days I take all four girls to the grocery store with me. Its chaos, and sometimes I do enjoy a moment by myself, like when they are all in bed or when Ben's home. But I want to treasure each and every day with my daughters because someday they will grow up and I will miss them. Kiddos are only little once. Cherish every day!

My total out of pocket at Old Navy was $0.88! Yep. I gave them 88 cents at the store. Score! Even with the $10 I paid for the Groupon, it is still a rockin deal! On sale the shorts themselves would have been over $11 by themselves, so its like I got everything else for free. Anyway, it was a happy day. :)
I've had a few people approach me about giving them coupon lessons. I'm happy to share with them what I know. Maybe there could be more to this coupon game than I thought.
My sweet baby Audrey is a thumb sucker! Emma was a pacifier baby and Audrey is a paci-hater!!! They may look a lot alike, but they each have their own cute quirks. I love them!

I am sooooo very grateful that I worked super hard in high school and at BYU because an education is an invaluable thing! I will always be a life long learner, but I am grateful that right now I get to learn about motherhood and teaching my children principles and preparing them for formal education. I am so proud of Emma because her favorite song right now is the ABC song. On the days we don't have joy school we try to do a page or two out of the pre-k workbook. I love seeing her learn and work hard. She can sometimes be a little perfectionist...I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

3 Sets of window cling-ons
1 Valentine's Day Banner
1 Set of Valentine's Day Bingo (Emma will hopefully like this next year)
1 Set of 75 cupcake liners
1 Hershey Kisses/Hugs Box (I may be able to eat chocolate again) :)

1 Dora & Diego box of chocolates (Guess who picked that out!?)
1 Dora Valentine's Day Adventure Book
TOTAL: $3.88 with tax!!!
(and on my receipt it says that I saved $33.80)
I was partially sooo excited because we have ZERO Valentine's Day decorations! And I just love a good deal on stuff I like. So I tried arranging everything in the shape of a big heart for the photo. Hopefully you can tell. I just wanted to share my awesome deal I scored today. Bargain shopping rules!
