Here is my sweet Olivia.  I'm planning her butterfly birthday party and thought I'd share a picture.  She is a beautiful girl inside and out.

Wow, it's been a long time since I actually wrote a blog post.  I'm not sure anybody reads this anymore, but sometimes it is just nice to write again.  My family is doing great.  Ryan and I have had more than our share of health problems over the last few years.  Ryan was diagnosed with adult onset asthma and sleep apnea.  Along with diabetes, I started suffering with horrible migraines last September and although they have lessened a bit, they still are more frequent than I'd like.  I've decided to take control of my health and I am starting the whole30 program, where you focus on lean meats, vegetables and fruit. . .whole, real food instead of processed foods, sugar and carbs.  I have high hopes for this as it seems just what my body and mind need to heal. 

Olivia will be turning 8 and beginning second grade.  She's kind of to the age that I don't want to share too much about her, but she is doing awesome.  We still struggle with weight gain. . .a lot.  We are to 40 lbs, but just on a good day.  Abigail is 2 1/2 and she almost weighs 35 lbs.  They are about 5 years and 5 pounds apart.  But, those girls are my world. 

Anyway, I'm not sure if I'll start posting again.  I may blog about my journal with whole30.  I begin it on July 13th (after vacation.)  Wish me luck!!
