So it has been a really long time.....
One of my goals for the New Year is
to try and post here at least a few times a month.

I feel like this past year has been one of the hardest,
yet rewarding times of my life. I feel like I am a
in a better place, and at peace with myself.
Not to say there are thing's that I would like to
improve on. There is always room to improve.

So as far as things we have been up to...

Tilisa is in fourth grade and loving it! She loves
school. She loves to learn and she loves researching
new things, she loves technology, and reading.
We found out that she is blind as a! So she
is now wearing some stylin new glasses! She is still
taking piano with a new teacher that we love! She had her
piano recital this past fall and did a great job.
She also was is in her elementary choir and there Christmas
concert was awesome.
Shannan is in first grade and she is doing great.
She loves her teacher and on her last report
card she earned all A's.
She is so much like my mom (her namesake)
I cannot believe it at times.
She loves to laugh, and tease, but not like
to be teased. She wants to start piano and
soccer this year so we will see.
Shannan lost her two front teeth right
before Thanksgiving so she is still praying
she will soon get them back!!
Ana is youngest and the craziest of our girls.
She always has something to say that is funny
and very quick I must say. Some of the things that
come out of her mouth shock me, amaze me, and
make me sometimes want to put a whole bar of soap in
her mouth....LOL!! Ana is in kindergarten and she
can't get enough of it, the social part of it that is.
She cannot wait to get to school every day to be with her
friends. The winter break has been torture for her!!
Ana loves to laugh, dance and just be a goof ball!!

This past year I have realized how precious
the time is I have with my girls. Each day I hope that
I am giving them my best. I love them so much and I
am so thankful that my Heavenly Father has given
me my girls. I don't know what I would be without them.

I am working full time as a graveyard PBX operator.
It has been a huge struggle since I have always
only worked part time. I feel like a zombie 99.9%
of the time, but I try to be as normal as possible.
I don't think people quite understand what it's like to
work grave yards, and be a mom, at the time.
I keep telling Loni I can't wait until August when
all three girls will be full time in school. Then I can
Sleep!! I can make it through the next 8 months.

This next year I really want to focus on finding
balance. Sometimes, well most of the time I sit and
wonder where the day went. I am trying to be more
organized. I want to be better with our finances, and
of coarse I want to continue losing weight. Those are my
top goals for this year, and of coarse keeping up with our blog.

I hope all of you have a Awesome 2011!!
This is my year!!!

Here is to finding BALANCE!!!

So good to hear from you!! Miss you! Glad to see your girls are doing well, and that everything seems to be going okay- except for being tired from working graves!!! I have the same dream you do: I cannot wait until Barrett goes to school full time. Until then, I continue to operate in Zombie-Mom mode. Oh well, we just do what we have to do, right??!
Keep posting!!!

Kenzo is the latest to go. The Japanese label's owner, louis vuitton outlet Moet Hennessy, issued a statement Tuesday blaming Argentina's "complex economic context" for the closure of its louis vuitton outlet store on Oct. 10. Government trade restrictions kept Kenzo from importing its spring and summer Louis Vuitton Outlet M40143 lines, store employee Stella Christianopol said.
