Way too much has been going on for me to be able to keep up with this whole blogging thing....shame on me!!

I'll let you guys in on a little info that I have been dealing with lately............................................

I'M MOVING TO PUERTO RICO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know....take it in....because I'm still trying to. :-) So much to do and so little time. Our last day here will be May 29th. Jonathan got an awesome job offer down there that we just couldn't turn down.

God has done so much in my life; I can't hardly keep up with Him. I'm so excited to see His next plans for us. (after I take this all in of course)

So, with all that being said, blogging is a must of course. Gotta keep you all posted!

love you all.

Catch up......

I'm sorry I haven't kept you all "up to date" with everything. So, here is the 411.
My little munchkin turned 1....can you believe it??!! She's getting so stinkin' big. I felt horrible for her though, because she was so sick on her birthday. Double-ear infection, plus we're having big allergy issues. Poor baby was miserable! I wished so bad that I could take her spot, but I couldn't. :-( So, I held her and rocked her for HOURS!! But, we're doing much better....after 2 rounds of antibiotics. She's such an amazing little girl. Every time you see her you can't help but smile. She's one of the greatest joys that God has brought to my life! Can't imagine my life without her! I love you baby!

Yay for me! This was the first birthday though that I have ever had alone. Well, Jonathan and the girls did a great job making me feel so special....but this was the first time that none of my family was here. Mandy and Matthew moved a couple of weeks ago to Georgia, and mom and daddy are in El Dorado and Mindi's still in Conway.

When I got to work on my birthday morning, my hubby had beautiful red roses in my locker waiting for me. Such a stinker!! (I'm definitely not complaining.....) He had requested my birthday off, so all day he ran around doing things for it. When I got home I had lots of presents waiting for me!! YAY ME!!!!
He got me an art easel!! It's so awesome!! And he got me lots of paint and brushes and pencils and just all kinds of stuff. I use to paint and draw so much. I loved it. But, I haven't done it in so long!! He said that he wanted to get me something that was just for me....not something I needed, but something that was 'my thing', something that would take my mind off of all that was going on and let me go into a world of my own. I haven't even known where to start with it. Can't wait though, I already have tons of ideas going through my mind!!
He also got me a new hoody!! I love it!! It's says "De Alba Since 2009" It's pink....which makes me love it even more. I wear it everywhere!
Oh, the chocolate cake above is a Coldstone Ice cream Cake!!! Woohoo!!! And boy was it good!!
My job is going great. I'm loving it more each day. Everyday I'm learning something new, assisting with surgeries, and so much more! My first test for my certification is on the 10th this month....I'm nervous, but i should do okay. Doc gave me plenty of things to study and prepare!! It will be exciting to have one thing down; Check!!!
The girls are both getting so big! Brooklyn is going to be 5 in a couple of weeks....I'm speechless and blown away! She's my little princess! She's doing so good in school and I can't believe that she'll be starting Kindergarten this fall!!! Holy Moly!!!
Heidi is walking now!! FINALLY!! She's such a mess....into everything!!!! We have to be careful with the house and make sure she's not getting into something that she's not suppose to be in.
Well, I'm going to go draw!!
Love you all!

Hello Everyone!

Can you believe it's already Dec. 26th? It is officially starting the very end of the year 2009 and officially marking the one month mark till my birthday!! (can you tell I'm excited?)

I haven't written in so long.....

My thoughts have wondered round and round my head pondering all the past of this one year. Things that have happened, things I said, things I shouldn't have said. Things that have changed me as a person, and pushed me to grow. The things that made me cry, and the things that made me laugh. The things that made me question myself as a person, a daughter, a mother, and a friend. And the things that made me feel as though I was on top of the world....completely blessed!

It's amazing to me how fast and how slow this year has been. It has been on of the worst years of my life....yet one of the most amazing and most blessed! Doesn't make sense huh?! At times this year, it had seemed as though I had hit the bottom; completely lost and confused about where God was taking me...if He was taking me at all...and then out of no where, He completely swept me under his wing, dusted me off, and kept nudging me to the place that keeps getting better and better.

In 2nd Corinthians 4:16 is says, "Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So fix your eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temperary, but was is unseen is eternal."

Our troubles for this past year are done and over with. It's not our battle to fight, because He has already won it for us. Giving things over has to be one of the hardest things to learn, but once we learn makes our lives so much easier.

I pray that each of you has a year that is blessed beyond measure! I pray that you find love wherever you go and in everything you do. I pray for wisdom with understanding so you be able to make decisions for your life that are God driven and will lead you down paths that bless not only you, but everyone around you!!

I love you all!!
