So Christmas is right around the corner. I feel like it really snuck up on me this year as it has every other year since I've gotten older! It was kind of sad not being able to put our own tree up this year. The girls still enjoyed helping Grandma Kath put up the tree though and while Grandma and Grandpa were in KC over the weekend we put up the garland/lights on the fence. Abby was still not having anything about sitting on Santa's lap and telling him what she wanted, until last night! She had a sudden change of heart and said she IS GOING to sit on his lap and tell him she wants some walkie talkies. (I'll believe it when I see it) I really am hoping she will because if she does, I think Shelby will follow and I'll finally have a picture of them with Santa! We spent Thanksgiving in Wichita with AZ's family and I braved it on Friday morning and started my Christmas shopping. Surprisingly I'm almost finished! YAY!! We are looking forward to the Christmas season and are thankful for all God has given!

So catching up on my blog stalking made me realize that I am quite the slacker! July since my last post-WOW! Well I'm starting over, TODAY! I guess the big news at the Molina house is that we are officially homeless! We decided we would put our house on the market and believe it or not it sold within 3 weeks. A lot faster than we were expecting! So now we are packing up our house, selling some things, putting the rest in storage, and moving to Plainville to live with my parents until we either build a house or buy something a little bigger to hold all the girls' toys! I am sooo thankful to my parents for opening their house to us, but also nervous about moving back. It is sure to be interesting! The girls are of course sooo excited and Abby tells everyone we are builing a "sparkly" house next to Grandma and Grandpa Ramsay. So, onto the next adventure in this exciting thing we call LIFE!

Today as I was heading into the hospital to work I received a call from my mom that reminded me how precious life is and how we shouldn't take anything for granted! A mother I know from high school lost one of her precious boys in a drowning accident at their home. I just cannot imagine what they are feeling right now, only knowing they need everyones prayers and support to help them through this tragedy. And through this tragedy they were able to give the gift of life to others through the donation of their little boys organs. What a truly amazing thing! When I got home today, I hugged my girls a little harder and longer knowing how lucky we are! May God be with this family through their grief and help ease their pain.

So last night as we were headed inside from playing, I looked down at the end of our block and noticed the beautiful wheat field that was just calling us for pictures. So, me, Abby, Shelby, and Zoe took a little walk over to the field and got some great shots. Abby fell and skinned her knee...again, on the trek over and Shelby really wasn't too sure about the wheat touching her legs. Oh well, it was fun! I may have to try some other pics with a sunset behind them before they harvest the field.
Ok so if I was getting graded on my blog, I would be FAILING! I can't believe it's almost been a month since I posted. I've come to keeping my facebook up to date better than the blog, but am going to try harder (isn't that what you say in school?). We have been extremely busy to say the least! We've had graduations, weddings, baby showers, more weddings, t-ball, cheerleading camp...and summer is just starting. I did manage to get the girls' pictures done because sadly enough it had been awhile and I was needing to update my wall. They turned out really good. Abby loves the camera and although it was a little difficult to get Shelby to sit still, we did get some excellent pictures!

This past weekend we celebrated Abby's 3rd birthday! Wow- 3 years have gone by since I received the most amazing phone call-EVER! It is amazing how fast the years have gone. I remember people telling me when she was born, but never imagined they were all right! Abby picked a Disney princess party for her theme and was excited to have friends and family there to help her celebrate. She received a Power Wheels Barbie Jeep from us and is now trying to learn how to steer this Jeep! Needless to say, even Shelby isn't too fond of riding with her right now due to a little whiplash she has had to experience. After her party on Saturday afternoon, Abby fell asleep in church while her little sister had to be taken out of church to the cry room and then out of the cry room to outside due to her sugar high she was on from the cake and ice cream. Shelby figured out when it was quiet, her voice echoed and once she figured that out...we were outta there! Caroline, Mac, and Nate came back for the festivities so after church we went to Jalisco's and Abby got to wear the sombrero while we sang to her. She loved, loved, loved all the attention on her special day! She has brought us so much joy and laughter. We cannot begin to imagine our life without her. She is so intelligent and is starting to teach her little sister words too.

These girls are lucky little girls. I think from Aunts, Godparents, Grandparents and the Easter Bunny they made a haul...a big haul! They had a fun time hunting easter eggs (3 times). Shelby was quick to catch on and loved carrying her basket. We headed to Aunt Eileen and Uncle Bob's house on Easter Sunday for a wonderful dinner and easter egg hunt. The girls always have so much fun playing with their cousins and we are lucky to have some that live so close! It made me so proud when AZ asked Abby on Easter Sunday what we celebrated today and she replied "JESUS, he rose from the ground" She is such a smart little girl and we feel very blessed!
So I just noticed I've neglected my blog! So I guess we'll do some updating! Lets see...Shelby and Abby are finally well (knock on wood). I was really beginning to wonder if the cold bug was ever going to leave our house. In March we got tickets to one session of the Big 12 tourny in KC so we could go watch the Jayhawks. We decided to take Abby to her first game, but figured Shelby would have more fun with Grandma Kath and Grandpa Charlie. But of course we still had to get them both their cheerleeding outfits and what fun they both have in them...

We had Shelby's 1st birthday party the weekend before her real birthday because the weekend after we headed to KC to see Sesame Street Live with Mac and celebrate his 2nd birthday! Poor Abby keeps telling me her birthday is coming. (only 3 months to go) We had a wonderful time celebrating with Mac in KC and hate that he has to live that far from us!

On Saturday, we celebrated Shelby's first birthday with a "Ladybug" theme party and lots of family and friends! She had so much fun and LOVED her cake! She got so many gifts we are really going to need an addition on our house. Her real birthday was on Tuesday so Grandma and Grandpa Ramsay came over for dinner and she got to have another cake! It was difficult for Abby to understand that it was Shelby's birthday and not hers, but in the end she did very good in letting Shelby have her day! I can't believe a year has gone by. Shelby is walking...make that running EVERYWHERE! She is becoming more and more independant! She is such a Happy little girl and brings us so much joy everyday!

Here I thought our life would slow down after the holidays...WRONG!!!! Can't believe the 1st month of this new year is almost over and even harder to believe Shelby will turn 1 next week! We are getting ready to celebrate her 1st Birthday this weekend with a "Ladybug" Party. She has changed so much just in the past couple weeks. She is walking everywhere, and even trying to run to keep up with Abby. She can show us with her finger she will be 1 and is really trying to say words like drink, diaper, Abby. She is such a good little girl and we can't imagine our life without her! We thank God daily for bringing us to our little angels of joy!
