Everyone has bee asking me 'how is life now with two kids?' I honestly don't know HOW to answer that... See we have been on fast forward mode since Hailyn was born... moving then (ugh) a short sale (ugh) a new career for Ryan, me opening a school and working with H beside me for three years... it was tiring... to say the least... So having little man here, we immediately started to look for a more affordable home so I WOULDN'T HAVE TO WORK!!! (YAY!!!) then right as we moved Ryan's little sister Kylee got married and well I went into wedding planning mode (yuuuup!) So after three am feedings I was trying to finish favors for the shower and unpack a box... But sleep deprivation? I've done it for YEARS so I was trained for that... multitasking? BRING IT I am super great at that too (not to brag but hey I can't sew or cook so I need SOMETHING people) Honestly adjusting to the new ward is the hardest part for me. They are great and I know some people- I just really really really miss my old ward...and stake... a lot... I'm sure when we finally meet the bishop and people it'll be good- I am nervous there is a nursery teacher vacancy... Now we are in June... it is still busy... but oh my I LOVE life with two kids!!! It helps Silas is a super sweet easy baby... I'm so smitten with him it's not even funny- and Hailyn is an amazing big sister- that helps a ton!! Also Silas only scoots right now- I am sure when he is a toddler I will be singing a different song... So I never had a chance to 'adjust' to life with just one really, Hailyn was always around kids, so having two is pretty manageable (for me) so I am happy with two for now... hope that sticks :)

Wow, in true 'Lacie' fashion let me update my blog... once a month. Sheesh I need to be better about it (especially since this is the only family 'journaling' I do) yaoza- family history... scrapbooking... yep should get on that... except life has been truly INSANE! from my last blog post that was a short novel, life has been crazy. We moved and all, our anniversary (Panda and packing, we DID get to go out later though:) moving and then I planned Ryan's little sister's wedding... yep. In all the craziness let's toss a wedding in there:) so why did I plan it? Ryan's mom is yw presidnet and camp director basically and she was SWAMPED with things- it was a super short engagement (She got engaged when Silas was born- well that weekend before)I said 'hey I'll plan your wedding!!' thinking it would be in September...(not to brag but I am a great planner- thank you student council) nope- MAY!! ok then!! oh have I mentioned I love this girl? a ton! I wanted her to have a wonderful and beautiful day... so as we celebrated our anniversary date- I went to walmart at 11pm to buy stuff for her bridal shower the next day. Up at five am feeding Silas and making bridal shower games and favors... so sleepy. Then the wedding planning craziness ensued. There was a dress fiasco. She borrowed my friend's dress and it fit perfectly no alterations! It looked amazing!! We borrowed a chandelier-we borrowed uplights- Ryan built a gazebo- one friend ran the chocolate fountain and the other catered. Another friend took pictures- despite her having the flu... (she loves me) I have amazing friends. The day was beautiful... it was the best sealing I had ever been to- yep ours the sealer kept calling Ryan Aaron- pretty sure ryan and I aren't even married... So I still have three boxes to unpack and my house needs some organizing... but wow- I am pretty amazed we accomplished this feat- a move- anniversary- 30th birthday- mother's day- Silas's baby blessing (on mothers day:) and a wedding- oh and a newborn... I hope the summer is mellow..
