Update on Life

So, several months have past since my last blog...don't know how time has passed so quickly. The summer came and went along with the rest of 2008. Trey is Still working at PBCFR and is also taking on the role as a instructor for the local community college in fire science starting this month. I am still enjoying my job at the church and we launced a new campus this fall and I am coordinating the early childhood program there and am still instructing dance classes at Attitudes. Kylie is enjoying preschool and it is hard to believe that her 4th birthday is fastly approaching...This winter we took a break and went to the mountains with family and had a blast. We also added a member to our family, Bella, our 13 week old yorkie and are in the process of house breaking, fun. Life is good. God is good. I am posting some new pictures...for those who do not check my blog, because you have given up on me, miracles do happen and I have a new post and picutres will follow soon...

Summer Happenings has been a while since I posted a new post. We have been enjoying our summer, attending many barbeques, parties, and going on some vacations. During the last week of May we went to the Marriott Grande Vista Resort where we spent many hours by the pool and some time at SeaWorld, where we enjoyed the Shamu show 3 times per Kylie's request. We had a great time spending the week with Heidi, Andrew, Emily, and Ansley, Nick and Audrey. For the first part of June we were busy with the annual dance recital, which turned out to be fabulous, if I must say so myself. Kylie danced in 3 numbers as well as in the finale along with her cousins. It was quite the production, but it is now over for the summer. Kylie is currently in gymnastics camp 2x a week and loving every minute of it. Currently, we have been very involoved with activities at the church, including the preschool drive in and preparing for the new campus launch in Stuart in August! We enjoyed having Heidi and the girls over this last week and our shopping trip with "Ms. Margaret"was a blast. Well, I think that covers everything that is happening for now...we will try to keep you updated!!!

Kylie's 3rd Birthday

Well, what do you expect?? So, I am a little behind!! For those of you who check my blog frequently you are thinking...thank God, I don't have to look at those house picutres one more time. We celebrated Kylie's birthday on her actual birthday, April 26th, with her family...well, most of them anyway. We started the day at Sweet and Sassy day spa for girls, where the girls got their hair, nails, and a peidcure done. They had so much fun...especially the birthday princess. After a day at the spa with her cousins, aunts, mommy, and grandma, we all stopped in a local "gelato" store. The girls loved their frozen treat! We then went to Chuck E Cheese where we ate pizza and played games. At the end of the day we went back to our home for cake, ice cream, and presents. The girls had a slumber party and everyone had a great time. Kylie can't wait to have another birthday party!

More House Pictures

After Photos

Well, it has taken a while, but I think it is time to post the after photos of the house...we have a lot of work still left, but all painting and most decorating is done. It is finally starting to feel and look more like home instead of a huge tornado of belongings! I am starting to feel a little relieved now that most of the inital work is over and I am getting a little more accustomed to the area, house, and my new job/schedule. I miss all of my family and friends in LP, but am very comfortable here and am excited about all that God has in store for us here in Port St. Lucie. We will be hosting Kylie's B-day party in a couple weeks at Chuckie Cheese and also have our first "party" here at the house with friends/family. We are very excited and hope everyone can come. Well, I think all my blogging is caught up...enjoy the pictures!

Wedding Pictures

The Updike/Mielke wedding was beautiful. We all enjoyed every minute of the day. Kylie really enjoyed her time at the salon, getting her hair done, and taking pictures with the beautiful bride, Margaret. Kylie was a bell ringing in the wedding and went down the asile right before Margaret did ringing a bell to make the crowd aware she was on her way. She did a great job. I have to say her favorite part of the day was dancing in the hummer limo on the way to the reception and getting to spend the night with her cousins...she misses them so much and so do I!!

Family Day @ Fire School for Josh

I was working at the studio, but Trey got some really great pictures of Josh and Kylie, so I wanted to post them. Josh is currently attending Ridge Tech and upon gradution in April will be working for Forestry...we are so proud of him. Kylie had a great time, enjoyed spending time with the family, and doing all of the "fire stuff". She tells me she can't wait to grow up and be a firefighter like daddy, so she can spend the night at the fire station...she just can't seem to understand why they won't let her stay the night now!!
