Christmas in July

Today I was able to capture Berkleigh's adorable "CHEESE". Now when she sees the camera she almost immediately sits down, hands in her lap and says Cheese.

I have pulled out some of Camden's old clothes that Berkleigh will fit into soon. I washed them and they were sitting on the couch. Camden decided to dress Sissy in a Christmas dress. Over her pajamas she already has on. Camden, being Miss Fashion Bug, topped it all off with the matching hat. (Accessories, Accessories!)

** Her poor little nose is due to a fall on the way to the pool the other day. It looks a lot worse than it actually is. Little Miss Independent has to walk by herself you know. Wonder where she gets that from??**

Settled in Texas

Well, where do I begin ? We now reside in Beaumont Texas after living in Lehigh/Fort Myers for the last 29 years. This is a nice city. Not too big, but every store that I could need is fairly close. We have lived here now for 16 days and are nicely settled. Which means...very few boxes in the house and I am starting to feel a little bored and lonely. We left Lehigh on such a fast traumatic note that I didn't really get to have the official "goodbyes" with our friends and family.In some ways I think that may have been the way the Lord wanted it, I'm not sure. Praise the Lord that Camden is doing wonderful with no residual effects from her skull fracture. Thanks to everyone who helped us in our time of crisis.

Camden (5yrs)is doing great and adjusting quite well. I think having Isaiah and Elijah has helped her immensely. We have her all set up for Kindergarten. She will start at "All Saints" on August 21st. We went last week to get her uniforms which got her excited. She is loving the swimming pool and is swimming pretty good by herself.

Berkleigh (15mos.)had a bit of an "adjustment attitude" I call it, but she is back into her normal routine. She is so funny. The problem is that she knows it. She is getting more vocal and is showing us daily that she understands far beyond what we think. Her newest thing is " CHEESE" when the camara is in sight. She is still a peanut. She weighed 19 1/2 lbs 3 weeks ago fully clothed.

Chloe made the move well. We are on the 2nd floor and she gets up and down quite well. you know old Chloe, she loves to eat, beg, sleep and poop. She's doing great.

Dax likes his job. He relays he has never been paid to sit around so much. The job he is on is having a slow start, but I say that is a blessing> He could be baptized with fire. I am home with the girls and love every minute of it. I will miss Camden when she starts school , but must enjoy the summer with her now!

I haven't really had much down time lately which I think has been good for me. I do miss everyone back home. I miss every one's baby girls, Target, Pedicures at VIP, Town Center, Scrap booking with the girls, After parties, peanut butter cup ice cream, and just time with everyone. You don't realize how much you love your friends and spending time with them until you just can't. Love you and see you all soon!
