Nearly Scared Me To Death!!

I lost Asha today. That is the scariest feeling in the world. I was cleaning the kitchen and realized that it was just way too quiet. You mom's know what that means, the kids are doing something they aren't supposed to be doing. So I go searching the house for her and can't find her anywhere. Her new favorite thing to do is go and play downstairs so I am constantly going up and down the stairs to check on her. I checked everywhere even places I know she won't go. She isn't answering me (she's been kind of sassy lately) and I start to freak out. I finally go back into my bedroom and hear her giggling. I thought she was hiding in a corner or something. Nope she is under my bed with her flashlight playing and watching the light.

Crazy kid. I had to laugh but wow did that take a few years off of my life.


I'm just hanging in there right now so all I have the energy for is pictures. My life is pretty rough and stressful right now and I really do appreciate all the thoughts and prayers. I don't see my life getting any better any time soon so pictures may be all you get for a while. I'm sure that's all you come here for anyway. I don't blame you my girl is beautiful. :)

They just love eachother so much. I could post a million pictures like this because they are always together.Dakota took this one with his camera at gymnastics. He really does love his sister ALOT!! He did a really good job too. You'll have to forgive the very ugly couch and just concentrate on the pretty little girl sitting on it.

Still trying to potty train and apparently this is what she thinks it's for. No actually she does sit on it just won't go on it. She gets up right before she has to go and pees on the floor. I just don't know what to do about that.

I don't know if you can really see it but I love her hair like this. It's called a twist out and only lasts one day. This happens when I take her twists out (hence the term twist out) and she gets these wavy kind of curls in her hair.

I know you are all probably curious as to what's been going on at home and someday I will share with you but I just can't right now. It's painful and just hurts too bad to talk about most days. I'm also not real sure who reads this blog and there are people we don't want to know right now. Someday I will share but it may not be for a while. Until then please keep praying for me and my family because we REALLY do need it especially in the coming months. THANKS!!

Asha has started the first session of the year for gymnastics and she is doing so well again. This class only has one other little girl Asha's age so they get alot of attention and the two girls get along really well too. Asha is just catching on to things so fast this time around and keeps amazing me and her coach. She has so much fun and enjoys it so much that I am happy we put her in it. With everything that's going on I hope we can continue to take her to her classes.
Here are some pictures of her from class tonight. Since my husband bought me the new camera I get some great pictures of her in class now.She had just realized I was standing there taking pictures of her. Silly girl.

This is her concentrating very hard on not falling off the balance beam. This beam is a little ways off the ground and she was the only one to make it all the way down the beam. This is her stretching before class. They let the kids run around for a while before class begins and there is a class of older kids at the same time as Asha so she likes to copy the older kids. Here she is on the lower balance beam. This one she just glides across with no help at all.

I am just so proud of her. She is getting to be so big. She is going to be 3 in a few months and I just don't know where the last 3 years have gone. Where is my little pudgy baby who used to cuddle with me?

Thanks again ladies for all of your well wishes and prayers. I can still use them so I appreciate them all.

Still Here

I'm still here just haven't been up to blogging. I am still dealing with alot of tough stuff at home but thought I would come on and post some pictures from the last month or so. I see that alot of people have been checking the blog and I don't want to abandon anyone so here are some pictures of my girl.

My husband bought me a new camera and I love the quality of the pictures. Here's Asha and her friend Minta opening their Christmas presents from eachother. They are just so darn cute together. When they hug they both do the lean instead of wrapping their arms around eachother so it always looks so funny.Here is Asha on Christmas Eve. She really made out in the present area like usual. She wanted every present completely open and out of the boxes before she would move on to the next gift. She did really well this year though and had alot of fun.

This is how Asha celebrated New Years Eve. We went to my in laws house and they had Asha's cousin and another little girl there for her to play with so she had a blast. She spent alot of time on this horse and it was so cute because she was wearing he cowgirl boots too.

I will try to get back to blogging more it just depends on how I'm doing from day to day. Life is pretty hard right now and I am trying to take it minute by minute when most days I just want to curl up and sleep my life away.

Thanks for hanging in there with me!!

Serious Stuff

I'm going through some tough times right now and may not be blogging as much. If it seems to help or is theraputic I may do it but right now it is taking everything in me to breath and make it through the day so I probably will not be blogging much in the next few weeks at least.

Sorry to all of you who love to read about Asha and her antics but I really need some me time right now and I need to figure out where my life is headed.

I hope I don't loose you all so check back some time later this month to see if I'm back.
