Fast Forward...September 2014

Well, here we are and a lot of changes!  Since my last post, I have taken a position with C4 Database Management and Consulting and loving it.  We felt this is the best decision for our family and allows me to keep our family as priority and spending more time with our spunky Emma Claire - the real reason we still have at least 1 follower still keeping tabs on us.  This is crazy overdo and I will share pictures at least from each month.  I figured that was the best way to catch up and see what we have all been up to since April of this year!

Matt's Grandmother (Christine), my Mom, Emma Claire and June (my mother in law)
Me and Emma Claire on Easter Sunday.  Matt had to work a double the night before so he slept while we went to church so he missed out on our pictures.
Daddy and his mini-me.  It makes my heart happy to see these two and the love Matt has for our daughter.
Picking strawberries before the Strawberry Festival in May
Don't mind my crazy look, I just finished the 5K Strawberry Stride and then thought picking strawberries would be another fantastic idea!!!
Just chilling in her own parade...What you do not see is Matt pulling her in the yard cart behind our golf cart.
 July 4th with my parents.  We went to Beechbend with my parents and Matt's mom.  We had a blast and ended the evening grilling out at our house with both of our parents.
Segway tours in downtown OKC with our family.  We had an absolute blast and I REALLY, I mean REALLY need to own one of these!
Emma Claire and June enjoying the wonderful weather during the Old Brush Ice Cream Supper
The ending of our dance camp this summer and how best to end a Frozen themed dance camp, but with a real live Princess Elsa!  Those girls were mesmerized by her and secretly I was too.
 Just because we love this ray of sunshine!
Last weekend at a local art fair!
That's pretty much what we do....just hang out and blog every 6 months.  I really would like to maintain this better since I know not everyone follows us on Instagram and Facebook so no promises, but I will at least try to stay on top of things.

Frozen on Ice

My mom and I took Emma Claire to see Frozen on Ice and Emma Claire loved it.  She was mesmerized every minute.  I think she really loved seeing a few of the Disney princesses at the beginning and especially Mickey and Minnie!  EC sang all of the way home until she crashed about 20 minutes from the house. 
It's hard to be a princess is what EC has told me today and princesses need their rest (reason why she slept in this morning).
Love this little girl to pieces and I loved to see her excitement.  It was a special night for all of us!

Of course, it's a requirement to get a wand for 'Elsa' 
Absolutely mesmerized!!!

Just Horsin' Around

Emma Claire loves riding the horses with her Uncle Jake.  A horse ride is not complete without the pink cowgirl hat!

Lexie Lou Necklace Party

Instead of having a traditional party, Emma Claire wanted to have a necklace party with a few of her close friends.  If you are interested in one of these, I encourage you to check her out on Facebook, Lexie Lou Designs is the name of her page.

The girls has the best time and we all had so much fun!

Happy Birthday Sweet One

Happy 4th Birthday Emma oh my how has time flown!  You are the joy of our lives and this is what I shared on Facebook on her birthday:

It's hard to believe our 'not so little' girl is turning 4 today. She came into this world so tiny and small, but she has definitely grown up quickly. We love every minute with her and blessed to be her parents. Emma Claire is independent (i wonder where she gets that from), sweet, spunky, sassy and loving.

I still love this little blurb by a dear friend and boss about Emma Claire and her entry into this world 'Similar to her mother, little Emma Claire Warren didn't want to wait to get things started. She decided that 9 months of pregnancy was just way too long. She needed to get out in the world and win a figure skating championship by 5, finish high school by 10 and be a millionaire by 16. So out she pops (literally) about 16 weeks early. - Stan Gordon'

Thanks to everyone who has been a part of our journey and we look forward to many more years. Each one of y'all are special and have left imprints on our lives. We are truly blessed beyond measure.

The Elf.....

This year, EC was actually into the Elf on the Shelf this year, so off to get an elf from the North Pole we went.  After reading the story, Emma Claire named her elf, Bubbles. 

Bubbles had fun reporting to Santa and coming back and hanging out in a new spot every day.  Here are a few of our favorites.

Welcome to our home Bubbles
