it's been awhile.....

I'm ashamed, I admit it. I've gotten so terribly lazy. On top of being extremely busy. Who knew that raising three kids while holding down a full time job could be so time consuming??? ha ha... just kidding.

So what has happened since my last visit to the blogosphere????

Hmmm, my sister bought a house and we got her moved in and even had a Housewarming party... See for yourself...

This was quite a journey in itself and it wasn't even me buying the home.

What else?? Oh yea, my oldest turned 17!!! What a way to make a woman feel old.... and want to cry at the same time. Even though she's turning into quite the young lady, she is still my little girl.

and my baby, my sweet angel, celebrated her first birthday 4 days after her sister turned 17!

ohhhh, and we celebrated halloween by going to a relative's house for a bonfire and a good time had by all....

now, just trying to prepare for the upcoming holidays... whoa! this year has really flown by...

It's been a while

Oh my, it's been such a long time since I've blogged! Summer 2009 has been a busy one indeed!!! And I don't even know where to start...

We started off in June going home to TX for the family reunion which I briefly blogged on. Then in July we took a girls' only trip to Dallas to see Keith Urban and Jason Aldean in concert. WOW! What a weekend.... That was followed by a quick trip to Houston and San Antonio to tend to some family business.

Through all of this we've played ball and did some fishing.

Now school is upon us and I have a junior in high school and one that started jr. high. Where does the time go??? And my baby girl will be a year old in just two months!!! Wow!!! There goes time flying by at lightning speed again.

Work has been busy and I'm preparing to go to Houston this weekend to visit with my sister and help her pick out some things for the new house she is having built. I'm very excited for her and glad I can be there to help her through it all. I love shopping!!! lol.. she despises it.

Not much else going on so I'm just going to post some pics... lol... besides, I know you all just wanna see how much Addison has grown~!

Urbanski family reunion

This past weekend the 2009 Urbanski Family Reunion was held.  This happens once every two years.  And my mother and the rest of the family all get together for food and fun.  It's always nice to go home to Texas for the event. 
Just thought I'd share a few pics with you.

the buzzard, bat and bumblebee

 If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8 feet and is entirely
open at the top, the bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner. The reason is that a
buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a run of 10 to 12
 feet. Without space to run, as is its habit, it will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top.
The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkable nimble
creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place.  If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about
 helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight
elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash.
A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will be there until it
dies, unless it is taken out.  It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near
 the bottom.  It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself.
In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and the bumblebee

We struggle about with all our problems and frustrations, never realizing that all we have to do is look up! 

That's the answer, the escape route and the solution to any problem! 

Just look up. Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, But faith looks up!

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly and trust in our Creator who loves us

Addy's bag

My dear friend, Dinnetta, made this awesome bag for Addison.  We are going out of town this weekend and she needed something sassy!
You rock Dinnetta!


Hotmail® has ever-growing storage! Don't worry about storage limits. Check it out.

She's growing up way too fast!

The adoption is taking forever!  I'll be glad when it's over.
Life has been hectic.  Hopefully things will go back to normal soon!
I'd be ever so thankful!
