Catching up...! last post as 6 long months ago.  When I was supposed to be completing a blog challenge.  And...I failed to keep up with my blog and complete my challenge!  I know, I know.  I am consistently inconsistent with keeping up with my blog.  But, I am making a mini goal.  One blog, once a week.  Who wants to make me pinky swear that I stick to it?  I truly enjoy reading my family member and friends blogs, and want to ensure I am documenting memories myself.

So let's get caught up with all that has happened over the past 6 months. Here are a couple of quick highlights!

The Fab FLake 2014 babes all made their entrance into the world!  In our circle of Forest Lake friends, all of the ladies were due with 2014 babies.  2 girls & 4 boys!  We are yet to get all 6 of them in the together, but here is one of the most recent pictures.  Please note: It is common to see the baby off to Nora's right crying.  She's a bit aggressive with her future friends. #bully

If you read my last blog entry, I mentioned finding more balance in my life.  I am happy to report that I have a new job that will offer flexibility and balance.  My new coworkers quickly made me feel at ease and are wonderful, so it has made the transition pretty seamless.  However, I continue to miss my past coworkers and have attempted to stay in contact with them.

Ms. Evie Mae is now 3 years old (and some change)!  She is a mini-me.  It is pretty scary how similar we are in looks and personality.  She looks a lot like my childhood pictures and can push my buttons pretty well!  She is still so sweet but oh so very sassy at times! She is a planner, a bit shy, and a creature of habit. Ev is starting to use her imagination and it is so much fun to watch her play.  She's a lovable little lady with a heart of gold!  She is naturally very nurturing and such an amazing big sister.

And our sweet Eleanor Anne is now 10 months old (and some change)!  :)  She is a completely different baby compared to Ev.  She carefree, little risk taker that is fairly mellow still.  But, boy oh boy is she a busy little lady.  She has been army crawling a little before 6 months and now couch surfing. She is a big babes weighing in around 23 lbs and in 18 month clothes...soon 24 months, but I wouldn't change it for the world.  Happy, content, and fun are words I would use to describe our Nora.

Additionally, we celebrated many weddings this summer.  Evie was the flower girl (well, attempted to be) in two weddings.  More pictures to come!

Another exciting event happened just this week!  My brother-in-law & sister-in-law added a new addition to their family! Larsen William Remitz.  Such a great ring to his name!  He was born on December 8 and was a big boy at 9 lbs, 12 oz.  I am yet to meet this little peanut but I can assure you more pictures to come!

I haven't loaded my pics onto the computer, so excuse only Halloween pics above.  I will continue to share more highlights from our summer once I get those pics up.

Cheers to being back to blogging!  Someone keep me accountable for keeping to my one blog, once a week please!



    FYI - do you have the "Blogger" app on your phone? A lot of times, I will blog right from my phone because it's SO easy to upload pictures that way.

    1. Awesome! Downloading the app right now!
