October Update

Good Afternoon Blog....
I have been thinking about writing all week... Seriously!!

Well I am finally getting a chance to blog for a quick second. 
About our life in Georgia... Well It has been beautiful. The weather has been amazingly gorgeous and we have been spending all our mornings outside playing at the park or in the yard. It is starting to get dark earlier at night and that is bringing us in sooner then we would like in the evenings. I could handle the weather being colder but other then that it has been great!
The boys are growing like weeds. Ethan has finished up with his soccer and absolutely loved it. We are planning on doing T-ball in the spring so for now we are taking a break from sports and will pick back up in the spring. Tucker is starting to say more words and he also likes to copy his brother more and more. Which means Ethan is learning what is means to be a ....good example!
They are really cute together when they decide to actually play together. I spent the morning cleaning today and they played the entire time. It was really cute to listen to them play, get along, and be safe while doing it! Ethan kept telling Tucker he was the baby and he had to listen and do what he said....I'm not to sure Tucker new what he was saying but he went along with it. 
As for Gus, well he is working alot, but doing great! I am so proud of how hard he works and his desire to love, provide, and lead the family. I am doing well... Just staying busy being a mom and wife! Which I love. 
I haven't set any time aside to do alot of photography lately but I am going to try and do better with that. 

I was able to get some pictures of us out on in the front yard a few weeks back....
So I thought I would share them with you if you haven't already seen them on Facebook or on my family blog.

Trip To Destin

Here are some pictures of our recent trip to Destin, Fl. We we were so excited to be able to meet up with friends and spend a few days vacationing this past month. We spent our days either on the beach, in the pool, or boating. Pretty much in the water alot of the time. It was so beautiful and the water was very refreshing. The guys did go deep sea fishing one day and had a blast doing that.They were worn out afterwards but I think they would have done it again the next day if they could have.
Tucker and Chandler were teething while we were there but they were great troopers.
When we got home I realized that Tucker had 4 back teeth coming in. No wonder he was a bit fussy. I can't believe I missed that! I mean I knew he was teething but I couldn't ever tell how many teeth were coming in so when I was able to get a good look and saw 4 I was shocked!

So we had a wonderful time and we can't wait to go back.

The first set of pictures are of us at the pool, beach, and on the boat!

Ethan loving his time in the sand... What boy doesn't like to dig to his heart content?
I don't know what he is doing here but look at how big he is getting

The next set of pictures are from when we went out to dinner.They are pictures of our view at the restaurant and the beautiful sunset.

These are views from the restaurant and our table.

Later that night after dinner some sweet friends drove in to Destin just to visit with us for a few hours and then drove back home.... Can you guess who?
Tim and Laurie Howard-Thanks you guys for driving in to see us and visit. It was great seeing you!We hope to see you again real soon.
Oh, and these pictures were taken at around 1:00 in the morning , so you will have to excuse the way we might look. 

Here is our view from the condo and the main living room space. You can see Tucker by the small round table. He was pretty happy to be out of his car-seat after being in it for about 7 hours.
What was also really neat was the Lettow's, Broome's and us were all able to stay in the same condo. Which made it alot more fun b/c we got to spend so much more time together.

After I upload more picture I will share some more from our trip but for now that's it!

Getting Settled

I know, I know... I am having a hard time finding time to post on the blog these days. 

First reason for not blogging lately, we are in our new place. We moved July 5th and July 9th. Woo--I am glad that is over and don't want to do it again for a very long time! The hard part wasn't just having two little ones but all the boxes and everything was so overwhelming that most of the time I didn't know where to start. I was also sad because of the friends and family I was no longer near. Well--I still am sad about that. I don't know that you ever get over moving from a town you have grown up in your entire life. But I am very glad for Gus and know that this is the right thing for us. 
With lots of help from Gus we have been able to put a big dip into the unpacking. I think I have 4 large boxes sitting in the living room to unpack and then about 4 medium boxes left to unpack in a closet. So we are getting there!!
Gus of coarse has a small to-do list and the garage to finish but I am feeling really happy about our accomplishments this past week and a-half.

The boys are doing well. Ethan is in Vacation Bible School this week and then I have him registered for another VBS next week. We are signing him up for Soccer starting September and then I am registering him for T-ball as well. I think we are all looking forward to when that starts. As for Tucker he has been a bear lately. He is cutting another tooth, he's stubborn, doesn't get along with his brother, and is just plain grumpy. I am praying for this to quickly pass! 

Second reason for not blogging, I just got Internet, phone, and cable on Saturday. Our neighborhood is a fiber-optic neighborhood. So we don't get to have Comcast or AT&T as providers. Everything is really difficult to do. It took the guy over 5 hours to install our Internet, Cable, and Phone on Saturday. Yeah--Not exactly what I had in mind to do all day nor did we know it would take that long--but hey--We are connected now! 

So there's my short version of our life lately. 
Oh and this past Sunday we were ecstatic to have some friends stop by on there way home to Florida from there weekend in Savannah. We had a wonderful time talking the afternoon away, swimming that evening, and having dinner with them. I told Gus after they left that their visit was exactly what we needed. So--you guys know who you are--Thank You So Much for Visiting US!! We loved it!

Anyone else who wants to stop in to see us, please know your welcome. We love having people over!

I haven't had much time to take pictures but I am planning on taking some of the boys this week. They are growing so fast and getting so big. I will be sure to do that soon so you don't miss out on there cute little faces!

That is all for now, folks. 
Have a great rest of the week!

Whats Been Goin On?

Ok so its hard to believe it has been 16 days since my last post. The longest it has ever been since I started this blog which was back in the fall of 2009. Lately it has been--well-- CRAZY-- is an understatement. 
Recently and when I say recently I mean within the last week we found out that we are moving. 
We knew it was a possibility but we just never knew when. We also didn't expect  (well I guess I should say "I") didn't expect it to be this soon. 

I know I have talked about trying to sell our home in the past and it just hasn't happened.With us planning on moving before July 10th we knew we would have to make some decisions. Our Realtor was really sweet and said she would let us out of our contract so we could try to rent the house. Which is what we are going to do.
I listed it on Craigslist and have talked with 4-5 people (who all check out--no scams) and are going to look at our house. 
Woop--woop... I am pretty excited about that but I just pray that we will be able to pick the right renters for us. It is a scary thing renting your home for the first time. I sure don't want anyone coming in an ruining things. So we are being very careful, getting background checks amongst a few other things. So hopefully no worries there. 
So yes, I am moving sometime between July 8th-July 10th to Savannah Ga. I am busy making appointments for renters, packing, playing with the kids, calling and e-mailing on homes for us, and much more. I feel like I'm running a circus!!

But I am thankful my husband has a job and I will always support him.

Well I must run for now. I need to finish a few things before our two appointments tonight. Hopefully I will get a chance to update you next week once we decide on a place. So for now-- Have a great rest of the day!

Slowing Down

Good Morning Tuesday... I can't believe your already here. 
This long weekend we had such a blast but it went by really fast. We really enjoyed our time in the sun and was finally able to get the boys to the beach for a day. They absolutely loved it, but I knew they would. I mean what boys doesn't like to dig in the sand?
It was also nice to spend time catching up with friends and family over the long weekend. So I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend just as I did.

So now to business....
I have been giving it much thought the past few weeks ( month) and last night I finally had that moment where I decided that I was going to go through with this thought. I am sad to say but I am going to slow down on my blogging for Mommy Buzz. This does NOT mean I am going to forget about the blog or stop blogging altogether, I am just going to slow down. And who knows, some weeks I might post everyday and some weeks I might not post but once. I don't know what to tell you to expect but I do know this--
This decision was not an easy decision. I feel as if I am sorta giving up on something that I recently started but that is not the case. I am simply slowing down and as much as I love to blog, to share ideas, to give you new recipes, advice etc. I won't stay away much.
Honestly, there are a few things that are taking a bit more of my time then what they should and my priorities need to take priority. So this means something(s) must give (or go) and in this case it happens to be slowing down the amount of times I blog.   So... please don't stop following/reading/commenting/or using the blog archives to read old post and check back often for new post.

I appreciate those of you who read Mommy Buzz. Thanks for understanding and hopefully I will be able to pick back up sooner rather then later.

Talk to you soon!



and I wasn't going to forget to share with you this months photography tip ...Ha

Open Light Studio's is a professional husband and wife team who give us tips each month on how to better yourself with the camera.
Here is June's Tip:
Look at how your subject is framed in the photo.  Are there distracting elements in the photo, like a tree limb coming out of their head?  Is your subject too small in the photo?  Seek to create an interesting composition with your subject by placing them slightly off centered to the picture.  Be creative and try new ways of framing. This will make your photos more dynamic.
 Here is a photo taken by Open Light Studios.
This might help with this tip...
