Goodbye Pacifier!!

Allee has always used a pacifier. For the last few months however, she has only used one overnight and naps.

A couple of weeks ago one of her last two pacifiers had a hole in it. I threw it away. As I did, I turned it to her and said "You have one left. When it gets a whole in it too, you are finished with them."

Well guess what? 3 days ago I was putting her into bed & I noticed a whole in it. It was a sad moment. I had to put it in my pocket. The worst part was that she was looking at me with her little mouth open waiting for me to tuck her in with her Pacifier for sleep.

It was hard to walk out of that room knowing that she was going to struggle to get to sleep. The crazy thing was, she had no problem. I thought I was home free!!!!!!! No such luck!!!!! The next day, nap time and sleep were very difficult. Lots of crying. Yesterday's nap was okay, but going to bed was awful. She cried for a half hour.

No matter what...... I will stick to this. There is no reason why I need to go back.

I am sure in about 2 or 3 weeks will get through the tough part and it will all just be a memory.

Wish me luck friends.

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her





I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

















I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Fail.
Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
