Hey guys!! I miss you soooo much!! I hate seeing no hosts in here I want to come back SO bad, but my internet connection doesn't like JM lol. Every other site works, but not this one. It just spazzes. But I wanted to come say hi! How are you?! What's new?

We're doing well! Mason is in preschool again and Claire starts "baby school" tomorrow (half the time I'm in class with her, then we separate and have parent time while the kids stay in their room- we love it!)

I got a Frontier 85! Mason is just about at the top slot of his Nauti so I had a small panic attack and happened to get a killer deal on a F85 lol. ($209 at amazon, price matched diapers.com, and had $30 in referrals so it was $179! Thanks to everyone who has used my code! ) So we love it so far. His grandparents jeep was only allowed to be retrofitted with one tether anchor, and they have two FF seats, so I thought the long belt path of the F85 would be better than having no top tether at all. Does that make sense? I'll have to take some pics. He loves it so far.

So yeah. That's that. Have I mentioned I miss you?!?! SO much! It kills me to not be around.






Oh, and new pics, of course

Hey girl! HOW IN THE WORLD did you get a frontier so darn cheap?!?

Wow, Clay must be short for his age? He is 6.5 and is on one-before-the-last slot of the Naut.
Carson just got one for my sisters car. He looks sooo cute in it,and I am officially apart of the I heart Nauti club!!!

Good to see you here momma!

your kids are sooo adorable as always,we miss you around here.

oh,and a question for you,where did you get claires harness covers?we have the CA and the straps are a bit narrow,so they cut into tatums neck and i can't seem to find ones thin enough for my liking,i know that they aren't recommended because they are aftermarket,but i'm willing to risk itthanks!

Well Mason is just even with the 2nd to top slot in his Nauti in my rental car (I got backed into, my Camry is in the shop) but that pic up there is how much room he has in MY car.. so not quite ready for the top slot.. but getting close. And you should know I am the deal QUEEN!

I got the strap covers from BRU for like $6. They are pretty thin, so I'm ok with it. I just put the velcro side up so the "doubled up" side isn't between her and the harness.

Maddie! I miss you so much! How is your new place? Hope everything is going well.

I SO wish I needed a Frontier 85. I saw it for 209 at Amazon, and with my gcs, it would be like 160ish. I keep telling myself another deal will come along, but I'm really impatient lol.

Hey Maddie!! It's so nice to see you! Boo to your internet not liking JM very much.

We're doing well. Christian turned 2 a couple weeks ago (so we celebrated 1 year ERF ) and Nolan is 2.5 months old already. I always figured I'd get Christian a new seat when Nolan grows out of his infant seat, but Nolan is proving to be VERY tall (he was .1 in longer at 2 months than Christian was at 4 months!) so I'm not sure what we'll do when the time comes.

Maddie- I miss you!!!

Nothing much new in my house, except I had a baby . Levi was born a month ago!! He is riding in a Graco Snugride 35- WHICH WE LOVE! And I got a Complete Air in Harvest like Claire's for Collin. Overall, nothing new or exciting.

Hope to see you around some more!!
