Do you believe in Destiny?

A year ago if you would have asked me this question, I probably would have said yes.  If I was asked this question today I would answer yes again, but not for the same reasons as a year ago!  I do believe that MaCee was sent to our family by our heavenly father and that her little soul would have made it to our family no matter what package it was delivered in!  It just works out that it is the cutest little milk chocolate package I've ever seen!!!  Monday I took MaCee to her 6 month appointment I had to laugh she is a little bowling ball... She weighed 15 lbs. 15 oz (75%)  and she was 24 1/2 inches (10%) this little girl loves to eat just like her momma!  MaCee has the sweetest personality, she is such a little cheese.  She loves her brothers and everything they do is so interesting to her.  She is completely a mommas girl, ok, and maybe a little bit a daddy's girl!  She is 100% PRINCESS, I didn't realize a 6 month old baby could be such a little princess!  She is a little love, and has brought so much joy to our family that we didn't even realize was missing.  As I sit here writing this post, and looking down at the little angel asleep in my arms all I keep thinking is, I so lucky to get to be this little girls mommy!!!

My little man!

In the last few weeks Dalyn has grown up so much all of the sudden he is one of the big boys!  What happened to my little baby... MaCee came in and took his place I guess!  I wish they could just stay little!!!
Today he told me that he had to go up the hill and get the cows!!! :(

First I would like to start by saying my children are my favorite part of my life!  The most amazing thing I have ever done is be a mom I LOVE IT!  The only thing that I really ever want to be is a mom and wife, and I know that I am so blessed to get to be!!! Now I would like to say that ever parent needs a BREAK now and then and on the 24th I got mine!!!  Mike and I have been enjoying our little half an hour of comedy before bed the last few months and at the end of the show Daniel Tosh always added come see us on the Tosh 2010 Tour.  So after a while of watching how much Mike was enjoying this guy a light turned on and I realized that this would make the perfect birthday for Mike and little break for me!  So on the 24th we took all four of the kids to my little sister ( I don't think she will EVER offer to do this again) and we headed to the airport.  It was so crazy walking through the airport with no children just Mike and I and so wonderful!  When you are the mom and dad of four amazing little muchkins it is hard to make time for each other, so we soaked up every second!  We arrived in Tucson about 5:30 went to the hotel relaxed for a while and then got all dressed up for our night out!  Just for the record if any of you ever decide to venture to Tucson the airport is about 20 minutes away from downtown Tucson I didn't realize that and got a hotel near the airport rather than near the entertainment, that made for a long wait for a taxi, anyway that's beside the point.  So we headed up to where all of the fun apparently is, and it was!  It is kind of a college town so the night life is very fun and busy!!!  We went to a great little restaurant a steak in the neighborhood,  the food was delicious and it was a very cute little place on what we thought at that time was one of the main streets but it gets much more fun than that! After dinner we headed over to the music hall to enjoy Daniel Tosh.  He was hilarious and it was so fun to enjoy with my hubby. We then headed over to what really where the main streets and people watched for a few hours which is always funny!  It was so wonderful to go to bed knowing that the alarm clock that you can't snooze would not be waking me in the morning, but I still was wide awake at 7:30 and missing my kids!  We enjoyed breakfast in the hotel and headed over to the airport.  We were only gone for 24 hours, but it was so wonderful and refreshing!!!  So for all of you amazing parents who haven't heard of one of these (a break) they are AMAZING, you all should have one occasionally whether it be for an hour or a few days it is a much needed thing!!!
