Long Overdue!

I have many other things to post about, but I always get behind, and then don't post anything!  This blog I feel more weight on my shoulders to say something amazing!  So I did write a post about Fayes birthday, but I did not feel it was amazing enough to post!  Silly I know!  Sometime this week I will just click that little publish button and call it a day!  I don't know why I get such anxiety about it!

I guess no news is good news right!  We are happy to report Faye is doing amazing!  In about a week it will be one year from when she got to come home!  HOLY COW right!  We could not be happier with the way everything is working out, and how well she is doing!  

She started Kindergarten yesterday!  It is such a bittersweet moment!  We are so excited for her to be in Kindergarten!  Especially since a year and a half ago we didn't have a clue as to where our lives would be at this point!  So sending her off to school was super exciting!  It is always sad to send your kids off to school, it means they are getting too big, but at the same is exciting to see this little girl grow up and pass all those darn cancer milestones she will be passing!
 She wanted her hair in pigtails for the first day of school!  At first I was bummed, because I wanted to be able to do her hair in some cute way for the first day of school!  But then I realized having her hair long enough to put into cute little pigtails is perfect for her!
 Her sweet teacher Mrs. Cook!  She seems so nice, and we are excited for Faye to have her.
 Sitting at this desk she seems way to grown up!  She was right ready to go....sat right down in her seat and was ready to begin!
 Day two!  Just had to snap a quick shot, cuz she looked so darn adorable!  Do you love her pose as much as I do?   Look at all that hair!  I still cannot believe how fast it is growing in! 
So heres to going to school!  I will get you updated with everything else Faye has been doing!  Especially now her and Mitchell are in school!  No excuses anymore right!

Stacey! That's me yelling at you for not posting something because you don't think it's amazing. Just do it. We want to see and hear it all. I love the pic of her sitting at her desk. And hello!! She could absolutely not be any cuter in her puma dress and curly hair. Bellisima! (for Nick)

She is adorable Stace!! Look at that hair, and you have quite a knack for styling it. You are really quite good at it. I would be scared to death to have a girl, i can barely do my own hair. haha. So good to see an update from you, you silly goof publish that birthday post. Love you!

oh and love little Nixon hanging out on the stairs in that last picture, tell him to stop growing...i barely recognize that baby that was here in April. How are these kids so big??

Love those pig tails! I see what you mean about Ella and Faye being hair do twins. They even kindof have the same look on their face. Too cute. Yea for one year. One down four to go!!

Yay on the updates!! I am so glad that everything is going so well for Faye and for your family. I check in on your blog from time to time to see how you guys are and I know it's silly but every time I see Faye wearing one of those flower headbands I made her it just makes me smile. I am so happy she likes them! With all her beautiful hair growing in I'm sure she could use some new flower clips and non-stretchy headbands. I'll see what I can do about that ;) Hope Faye and Mitchell have a great school year!!
