Arizona Update

We are back & settled in Chandler, AZ! It is like we never left :) We have been here almost two weeks & the weather has fluctuated between 65-80! This is the best time of the year in Arizona because the summers are brutal! We are enjoying this weather now bc we know that pretty soon we will either be at the pool or indoors...
We have also been a house filled with sickness :( Im assuming it is all the beautiful trees, bushes, flowers that are making us crazy, but they are sure beautiful to look at. Poor Paytyn has had a deep cough, fever & stuffy nose for almost a week & now Miss Payzlyn is sneezing & coughing...I'm praying for a quick recovery & for two healthy babies :) This momma is exhausted!
On another note, Odie is almost done with training camp. It's officially over Friday, so it's going well. He had a scrimmage & I got to experience taking both girls by myself...let's just say game day is going to be an interesting & exhausting experience. It's great being back this way & we absolutely love the boys & their families! Last year, we had a "wives club" & only one other girl had a baby. This season every wife has a baby (or two) or preggo, so it's a total family atmosphere!! <3 it!
We miss our families, but are really having a great time & have even been to the pool a couple times.

Tonight we are headed back to the great state of Arizona for another (our last?) season as Rattlers!  My husband and I had been debating (a lot) on what move would be best for our family and after much much much debate we decided to go one more year! I have to admit, it is so great and definitely makes me proud to watch my hubby play football. He's so talented and so humble and the pride on my Paytyns face when she sees daddy run out on that field is priceless.  We are packed and the Tahizzi is loaded and we are headed for a 18 hour drive...I know, I know...UGH! 

We will be there until August (hopefully after we win another ARENA BOWL)! 
I'm sure I will be a terrible blogger during those six months, but I'm determined to try!!  
God Bless!!

Valentine's Day 2012

I have been so busy being a mommy that my blogging has definitely taken a back seat. I've never been much of a Valentine's person, but this year I decided I wanted pictures of my babies together. For some reason VDay has become more about my girls then daddy (sorry babe:) Having children changes so much! 
Since we are heading to Arizona, we decided we weren't buying anything we had to pack up, so daddy bought Paytyn and I pedicures!  Our favorite thing to do together :)
