Hey all. I thought I'd finally make an appearance on the 'ol blog. I miss y'all so much, and think my blogging break is finally over. I have been debating shutting down my blog, but then I'd miss out on so much I think. I promise I'll catch up with each and every one of you soon. Sometimes it's hard to find the words and/or the time to dedicate to blogging, but I desperately miss it. It's been a few months since I opened up this blog and freely spoke my mind. It's like therapy sometimes, and I need it back!

So what have we been up to lately you ask?

 The girls are doing great. It's been such a mild winter (knock on wood), that we've been enjoying going with out our coats, playing outside, taking walks, having the windows open and just enjoying life.

 I feel like my 'baby' turned into a big preschooler over night, and it makes me sad. This girl can write her name with the best of them, makes this momma SO proud.

 My big girl has such a big heart for Jesus. She is constantly making these signs for her door, her sisters door, her walls, etc... She spends time reading her bible, praying with her sister and I, and makes me strive to be a good example for her and Addaline each day.

I've decided, thanks to Jenn posting this on twitter, that I think I'll join this fun February photo challenge. What better way to keep track of a month, than by photos?! Thanks again Jenn for the inspiration. It will also give me something to blog about hopefully. Double win!

Gerrad and my dad have gotten me hooked on a new hobby... say hello to my latest purchase, a .45mm handgun. Look out world, momma's packing heat :)

Hopefully you'll see more of me around here, and that G will be back with his Friday Funnies. If you have any fun link ups you participate in, send them my way, anything to give me a little help getting back into the swing of things.

I was wondering the other day what happened to you! I'm glad you're back... and with a gun?! Watch out. :)

SO glad you are back!! I'm hopefully going to do the Feb. photo challenge this month too.

I'm desperately wanting a gun. You having one makes me feel like I need one even more!

I really want to learn to use a gun. I think it would be so fun going to the range.

sooo sooo glad you're back. Now I just need to follow your footsteps and post more than my weekly baby updates! :)

I seriously can't believe you are into gun shooting...that's awesome ha! They freak me out. My dad has a hunting business, so I grew up around guns and learned to shoot when I was 12 and could take the hunter safety course. I went one time and hated it. I don't even like being around guns now, so strange ha!

I'm so glad you're coming back to posting!
And the photo challenge will be so fun - promise!

Check out my post tomorrow with all the photos I took for the January challenge :)
