I miss blogging

Wow I can't believe I haven't blogged since last summer! The kids are getting older with busier after school activities and homework. Stephen and I have both been real busy at our jobs too. All my hard work and time at work paid off too, look at what I received at work in December...

I still enjoy keeping up on all the family blogs and everyone's Facebook posts. Miss y'all!
Hopefully I can post more frequent posts.

Special Visits

During our vacation to California the kids got to spend time with family and friends we don't see often. They especially had a good time with all their cousins. Love this shot of Alex and Madeline on the Ferris wheel.

We spent the night at Stephen's brother, Mark's home. James was actually pretty shy and quiet on this trip, seeing so many people he actually didn't talk a whole lot. But once he got comfortable, he started having fun with his cousins.

Madeline always loves seeing her girly cousins. Ella and Eden are such sweet girls.

This pretty sums up what happens when Spences get together. :)

I'm so glad we were able to fit in time to visit with the Abbott family. They are long time family friends, and Lynda is the jeweler that made my custom wedding ring using Stephen's great-grandmother's diamonds. To this day I still get compliments on my beautiful ring that she made.

We stayed with my parents the majority of the trip. I feel like we were always coming and going. But we did get some quality time with them including going out to eat to Island's - my fav!

We got to spend a lot of time with my nephew Alex. Love this kid. We took them all to the Family Fun Center near my parents home. It's been around since I was a kid. Used to go on the bumper boats here, as well as the skating rink. Lots of memories old and new.

I'm Still Alive!

My poor blog! Blogging has become a thing of the past for me. I swear I never have time but to give a quick Facebook or Instagram update these days. Well summer is in full swing for the Spences! We spent the 4th in Southern California visiting with family and friends. The kids had a blast!

My best friend also had her baby while we were there! 
Welcome to the world sweet baby Emma!

Madeline had an awesome school year participating in her school choir. She really loved it and learned a lot. This past week they had their last 2 choir events. And they did awesome (as you can see by their trophies!).

My Best Friend's Baby Shower

I flew out to California a couple weeks ago to throw my best friend a baby shower. She's expecting her first baby, a girl she is naming Emma. The shower turned out beautiful thanks to family and friends who helped!
