We're melting!

So it's been a while since I've written, but there's not much exciting stuff going on. Oh yeah, except we are melting in this gross heat! Holy cow...this summer brings on a whole new meaning of HOT to the Santa Clarita valley. It's never been this hot in SCV since I moved here about 10 years ago (wow...I can't believe I've been out here that long!). In fact a few days ago (Sat?) they recorded the hottest day in LA's history. It's been in the 120's and hotter...no joke! AND, we got our electric bill and wow...it was HIGH. Who likes to be hot and sticky in their own home? But now we are doing lots to save $$, even if it means sweatin' a bit at home. I'm just staying close to the fans. =)

Davis turned 10 months on Friday and continues to grow and change each day. I know I say this a lot, but it's amazing how babies grow in their first year...or two. Such a blessing for me to be at home and watch it all happen. He's close to walking and has taken a few steps every now and then, but then realizes what he's doing and let's himself crash. Maddy just turned 2 1/2 on the 10th and loves to be the bossy big sister and sing "Jesus Loves Me." Below is Maddy taking care of her baby "Dolly," who is also known as Golly and Molly. =)

I hate being so far away from my family and not being able to see them on a regular basis. Emily, Natalie and Zach, I can't wait to see you in August!

4th of July

4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. As a kid, it was a big deal for me. One of my favorite memories was going to the Merrills house for thier 4th celebration.....it was the BEST! We'd swim, eat and play all day, roast a pig, make smores and have a ton of fireworks in the evening. That was when fireworks were legal though....it's never been quite the same!
