I changed my mind. I don't want to move anymore.
I want to stay in comfy, familiar Spokane, with it's many options of shopping and restaurants and parks and parades and food events where I can pig out in the park. I don't want to go make new friends. I don't want a new adventure anymore.
I am feeling downnnnnn.

About 90% of my house is packed and I can't seem to find the motivation to pack the rest.
And we are moving tomorrow.

I want to stay here.
Can someone please explain this to my husband?

Livia is 4!

Our little Livi Lou turned 4 yesterday! We celebrated just how she wanted to....with a Toy Story birthday! Wait....have we done this before? Oh, that's right, she had a Toy Story party last year, too. Obsessed much?
We had a party on Saturday to celebrate with family and friends. Even Nana and Uncle Chad made the trip over!

Yesterday we just did whatever Livia wanted. We went to Ross, where she found this:

She is now the proud owner of a "Rockstar guitar!", thanks to her birthday money from Grammy & Grumpa, Nana & Papa, Grandma Peggy & Papa Jim, and Grandma Weller! So far she hasn't drove me crazy.

We visited friends and watched the snow fall. What happened to our early spring???

For dinner she requested fruit snacks, McDonalds and milkshakes. I was happy to make that happen. And finally, we dropped Stella off with the Crawford's (THANK YOU!) and headed to the Chiefs hockey game! My camera died after 3 pictures, boooo!
Even though it wasn't the outcome we anticipated, Livia had a great time! She even got a foam hockey puck to go with her Chiefs hockey stick she got for her birthday.

Happy Birthday to our little Rockstar! We love you!!

Time out

I am sick of packing.
So I am taking a time out.
Do mommies get time out?

Enjoy the cuteness!

Yes folks, that is a Justin Bieber t-shirt.

I know, I know

I am horrible. I have many excuses, though! The biggest being that my laptop was out of commission and hooking it up to the TV to blog wasn't very appealing. I was kind of going through a rough patch of loneliness as well, with Clancy being in Yakima.

Long story short, I am back in the game!

Today, we are getting ready to celebrate Livia's 4th birthday, which is really on the 23rd. I took her shopping this morning to pick out her birthday dress, and being the tomboy that she is, she didn't want a dress. Instead, she fell in love with a 'Rockstar Outfit" as she calls it.

Love this girl!

Remember this? Today is the one year anniversary of her being admitted to the hospital for Periorbital Cellulitus.

I am grateful everyday for all the great medical care we received at the Sacred Heart Children's Hospital.

Other news: We are moving next weekend! We are renting out our house (yes, we were desperate) to a nice family and getting the heck outta dodge!

Happy Weekend!!
