Summer in a nutshell

So...I started this blog a while ago when I was feeling sentimental about my baby growing like a weed and I wasn't exactly sure how I felt about it. While I love following others' blogs (kellyskornerblog.com), I just didn't feel that anyone would want to read about me and all that is going on in my life! However, I made the decision to continue blogging, not for anyone else, but or myself. =) I think I might have kept a diary when I was little, but never seriously. Anyway, there IS a lot going on in my life as of late and so I am going to blog about it. I feel that it will be neat to document these exciting changes in our lives as they unfold! Since it has been a while since my last post, I've decided to make a list to summarize summer 2009. Here it goes...

  • I wrapped up my second-to-last semester of college to kick off the summer! (YAY!)
  • My mom celebrated her (age undisclosed) birthday on May 20th.
  • Trey turned 26(yes, 26...that is 4 years away from being 30...YIKES!!!) on June 2nd.
  • Perhaps the most important event of summer was on June 21st. Our baby boy, Jaxon Trey, turned a whopping 3-years-old (break my heart<3)!!!>
  • One week after Jax turned 3, we took a family vacation (as we do every year) with my parents and my two little brothers to Hilton Head Island, SC. Jax loved it even more this year...he had SUCH a good time!
  • Around that same time, Trey and I began house hunting for our very first house.
  • For the next few weeks, house hunting consumed our lives.
  • We looked at houses.
  • We looked at more houses.
  • And more houses.
  • FINALLY! We found the one! We made and offer and they accepted! We were SO excited to get the ball rolling and start the process! =)
  • On July 19th, my little brother, Ethan, turned 14-years-old! I cannot believe he will be a freshman in high school. I can remember the day he was born like it was yesterday...time really does fly (sigh).
  • My stepdad, Sean, also celebrated a birthday on July 23rd.
  • My other little brother, Evan, turned 13-years-old on August 4th. Again, I can remember when he was born...that makes me feel so old!
  • Jax and I went swimming on the very few days that the Kentucky weather would allow. He is SUCH a little fish! I'm SO glad he enjoys the water.
  • On Monday, August 10th, Trey and I closed on our house! WOO HOO!!! (the 2nd most exciting event of summer) I cannot wait to move...or better yet...paint my house! ha!
All in all, summer was pretty exciting for us! We have LOTS more coming up so stay tuned! There will definitely be pics posted of that special little boy in my life and also of our new home. If you're even awake at this point, thanks for reading! I'm really going to get into this from now on so feel free to come back soon!
