A Blog Worthy Day!

So, I am behind on my blogging, but I have been having a wonderful summer spending quality time with my family. That is so much more important than blogging! But, I am glad that I do take the time to put the memories down on "paper" now.
In May, we had a wonderful family day going to the new Sea Life Aquarium that opened in Tempe. We spent the morning exploring fish, star fish, stingrays, and Amie's favorite jelly fish!

Me and My Girl!

Jelly Fish! Aren't they cool?

Amie Lynn checking out the tide pool.

Amie was a little shy when it came to pet the star fish. They even put one in a tupperware for her to touch, but she just couldn't do it.

Amie is our little Dora, she needs to consult her map!

Cool bubbles to stand in to get a better view of the fishes.

Aren't they cute?

Afterwards we went to the park. Amie and Daddy had a blast playing together!

Twirly slides are the best!

Isn't he the best Daddy?

It was such a great family day. We love spending time together doing nothing or being on the go. I love how Chris really plays with Amie. He is a big kid at heart. It is fun to watch. Daddy works so hard for his girls that it is nice when he gets a break and gets to unwind!

Amie Lynn Turns 3...I know I am behind, but I have been a little busy!

Amie Lynn turned 3 this January! It is amazing how fast time flies by. We didn't have a big extravaganza for a party, we had her bestest friends over for some pizza and cake, and then her very bestest friend in the "high wold world" spent the night - Morganne. I love that my daughter is so easy going, and doesn't need lots of hoopla to satisfy her. We can lay low, and she is just as excited as when we go somewhere. She is a very good little girl, and I pray that we are teaching her to be a well mannered, caring, loving, happy child. Her first 3 years have been wonderful, and I am excited to see what this year brings as far as her learning and trying new things!

My Tough Little Trooper!

Two weeks ago, Amie Lynn was playing with the boys at church on Wednesday night after an awards ceremony for her Rainbows class when she fell. She didn't just fall, she fell on her face! Poor thing was bleeding from her nose, and her mouth. She fell in the dirt, so there was mud, blood and saliva involved. She cried, she was scared, but after getting her cleaned up with the help of some friends (Thanks Jeremy for offering to eat the neosporin to show Amie that it wouldn't hurt!), she was back in the swing of things playing with the boys again! And, no, she didn't get hit in the face with the piece of wood she is holding; she just wanted to pose with it!
Life with a 3 year old is fun and exciting! I can't wait until September when I will have a baby and my 3 year old. I am very excited to have siblings, and watch them love each other, and grow together.

Merry Christmas!

So, I am officially on break for three whole weeks! It has been an amazing start to a great break thus far. I have been blessed with so many wonderful people in my life and I have been able to spend some time with those people this weekend! Chris, Amie and I went to Zoo Lights on Friday night after our school's Social Committee Christmas Party. I took Tammy out for pedicures as a Christmas gift, and spent time with lots of ladies at our Church's Ladies Christmas Luncheon, including a great friend Michelle. I even got to go on a special date with my hubby while Michelle watched Amie for us. It has been a busy, fun and special weekend! Today, I got to spend time with my friend Amy and her family at lunch after church listening to their funny family stories! I have only 2 days left here in Arizona until I take off for Alabama, so I know I have a few more days of spending time with important people in my life. It is a fast and furious way to tell everyone I know Merry Christmas, love ya, and see ya in a few weeks!

The highlight of my weekend was getting to watch Amie Lynn in our Church Christmas Play! She was an angel, a beautiful one, I may add! She was shy, overwhelmed, and scared, so she did her best for about 2.4 minutes and then cried, "I want my Momma!" A friend got a shot of her looking around for me and crying in costume! I can't believe that she is old enough to be in the play. I have watched the play for years wondering what it would be like to have my baby involved in it somehow, and this year, she was! It is a rite of passage that makes me proud and sad at the same time.

Here she is being ushered in to her spot in the manger scene! She is doing alright...

And, here she is on Amy's lap crying as Amy is trying to console her!
Just love it!
From our Angel to yours...Merry Christmas!
May your Christmas be filled with the reason for the season - Jesus and his unconditional love.

Halloween at the Conrey's was fun! It was a few days of wearing cute Halloween clothes, picking out pumpkins, carving pumpkins (at a party!), and then Halloween! It is so cool that Amie is really starting to understand Halloween. She was excited to dress up and go Trick-or-Treating, look at her pumpkin, light it up, pass out candy, and everything else that goes along with Halloween! Enjoy the picture of Amie's Halloween Extravaganza :)

Picking out Pumpkins!

After the carving of the pumpkins! Mine is the best of course - it is the ghost! Chris did a pack-man-o'lantern! It is on the end. Amie has a scary pumpkin!

Tinker Bell! Isn't she just too cute for words?

Daddy and Amie heading out to do some Trick-or-Treating!

Trick-or-Treating at her first house. She is such a big girl that she wanted to do it all by herself! she knocked, said Trick-or-Treat, and even said Thank You without needing Mom and Dad.

The after candy shot! She snuck a few chocolates while we weren't looking!

It's Been a While!

So, it has been a while since I posted last. What can I say? Life has been busy. I realized this past Friday, just how fast life has been lately when I was using every muscle in my body to keep my eyelids opens all day. But, I did it, I stayed awake for our Kindergarten Fall Festival, and a pumpkin carving party! Everything was fun and well worth the effort, but still I was exhausted! Then, yesterday, which was Halloween, I again just kept going like the Energizer Bunny. Life is so hectic sometimes, but lately it has not felt like sometimes, but all the time! Chris' schedule for the month of November looks something like this: I took a picture so that I can remember what he looks like, 'cause, I am not seeing much of the man until Thanksgiving! So, in all the craziness life has to offer, I am trying to remember to capture the small moments in life, especially those involving Amie Lynn!
Amie Lynn was Dedicated in August!

In September, Amie Lynn went on her first camping trip! She loved sleeping in a sleeping bag...wait, she loved PLAYING in her sleeping bag. It took forever for her to fall asleep!

A few weekends ago, we went with the Gooden's to the Florence High School Homecoming Game! We showed Liah and Amie what it takes to be Homecoming Queen.

Dancing at a local restaurant! We had a blast with my Aunt and Uncle. We do take time out to enjoy the little things in life :)
