The past few months...

Ok, so I know it has been like two months since my last blog... you would think now that I am staying at home I would have more time to write but sadly that is not the case. So much has been going on with us. In May, Charles and I took a much needed vaca to Jamaica and then spent some time with family. We had the 4th annual Russell Family Reunion in May out at Camp Creek which was wonderful and I spent time getting use to a new job as a full time stay at home mommy. June was a crazy month for Charles... he went on business trips to Florida and California and then went to Wisconsin to see his favorite band Phish preform. While he was gone I spent some time with family... Mom and I went to my Nana's home to start the process of cleaning it out and from there meet up with Dad, Andy, Bobbie, and Shelby to spend a week at Camp Creek relaxing in the sun. Also, in those two months we celebrated our first Mother's Day, Father's Day and 6 year Anniversary! This past week was Capitol Hill VBS and next week I go to Ft. Worth for a mini reunion with Tricia and Joanna (my old roomies from college). Hopefully after that our lives will slow down a little so we can breath! I thought in this post I would attached a lot of pictures from the past two months... Enjoy!

It's been a looong time since I posted too! Sheesh! Emma has the blue-est eyes!!! I love looking at them with those long eye lashes!

Settlers, really? Where did this game come from? Andrew and all of his little college buddies are obsessed... it's like monopoly but in the stone ages.. wheat, coal, bricks? whatev.
