Oh Those Fingers and Toes...

Bella, Fia and I went and got our toes done the other day at the nail salon. I had taken Ashlynn a little while before that and when they saw her cute toes (painted with snowflakes), they wanted to go too. The picture below cannot even capture how adorable Fia's little toes were. The women at the nail place kept oohhing and awwing over her. She was sitting so still and kept looking at her toes - she could not have been more cute. Bella decided that she wanted her fingernails done instead, and her nails were also VERY cute. She was sitting at the table like she just came in and had her nails done all the time. When she was sitting at the table waiting for them to dry, she was very still and watching everyone - the girls were just SO cute. Fia's cute-y, cute little toes...she has butterflies on her big toes.
Bella's pretty fingernails - she has a flower on each thumb.

A Christmas Post...

Bella and Fia in their red Christmas dresses - Fia is mad because she wants to wear pants instead.
Above is the card that Ashlynn made us for Christmas. I think it is so cute, that I am going to put it in a frame and hang it on the wall at my new house.

Two of my little cuties!
Bella, Fia and I - Ashlynn spent Christmas at her dad's house...and I am sure that she had a great time, but we missed her. Grandma and Grandpa Bogue bought these pretty red dresses for the girls.

A New Year...

"Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives."

It is only the end of November, but I am already thinking of a new year. This new year is going to start on a different note - Perry and I are seperating, I am going to be in a new house and hopefully starting a new job. If all goes well, I will be starting a new academy in January. The new year is filled with possibilities...It has been a long, sometimes difficult, 9 years that Perry and I have been together. There have been plenty of fun times, we have 2 beautiful girls together and Perry has had a big hand in raising Ashlynn since she was almost one. Also, Perry is a great father, who loves his girls. For that I will be eternally grateful and we will remain friends.

While we realize that being divorced is not the ideal, we are at peace with the decisions that we have made, we know that it is a good move and are looking forward to the opportunities that await us.

I would like to thank my friends and family (you know who you are) that love me and have stood by me and listen to me (and listened and listened...) and if they wanted to shoot me or pull their hair out or be judgemental, they covered it pretty well. I love you more than you can ever know!

"It is true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we're missing until it arrives."

"May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy."

Time to create a new mastrpiece...amy
