Happy Birthday, Mick!

Wow! Can't believe it's been four years. Amazing how a little person can change your life!?! Tonight was the family celebration. Michael Cameron got a TON of Cars stuff and LOVES every piece of it. He wanted to play with the Mac truck that Gran got him for most of the night! But, Daddy's gift was a huge "HIT" - can anyone send me earplugs, please?

Baby, it's cold outside.... got down into the 40s last week. Mommy was actually wearing tights, boots, and a sweater!! It even snowed near Orlando!! On this particular day, it was in the 60s.

Kaila and her Papa!

Here's Papa reading to K. She ADORES him!!! But Papa is so much fun, how could you not? We're so lucky to have them so close by.

Can't forget Uncle Tim...

The only picture we have of Uncle Tim - he and Mick chillin' on the hammock. Sorry to all of you who live in cold weather, it was about 78 degrees here (maybe chillier at 75!)

How sweet is this boy???

Mick absolutely fell in love with Lily...he was constantly near her, rubbing her head and singing the ABC's to her! He must've sat next to her in these pictures for about an hour! Before they left to go back to Georgia, he did ask if we could keep her! She is such a sweet baby. Oh, and that is Kaila grabbing Mick's nose and Mick grabbing Lily! Priceless.

some of my faves from the weekend...


We have so much to be thankful for this year. We're thankful for our two beautfiul children who bring a smile (or two) each and every day. We're so thankful that they are healthy kids. We're thankful for our wonderful church ( What a wonderful group of people to turn to for support and encouragement. We have wonderful families who are such blessings. We're thankful, especially, to be living in this country where we can worship freely. We're thankful for all the many blessings God has granted us which are too many to list. As we gear up for the hustle and bustle of Christmas, we pray that YOU know Christ as your personal Savior and know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you will spend eternity with Him.


Can't forget about Mick!

Kaila and Aria having too much fun!

The girls

Here's Miss Lily...look at those cheeks! This child even has fat rolls on her knees! The cutest! Here's Regan and Aria and Regan with Lily.

Happy Thanksgiving

This is what it's all about! Ryan's sister Regan and her husband, Tim and their girls came to Florida for turkey day! It was great to watch the kids all enjoy each other! This is Aria feeding Kaila her turkey dinner - after their bath and after poor Aria had a visit to the ER (everything turned out fine, but was a little scary for mom and dad!)

Day at the beach...

This was last weekend...Mick had his first run-in with a jellyfish and was horrible! Didn't stop him though, he got right back in the water a few minutes later. We try to go at least once a week (doesn't always work out though).

Margaret Becker and Kelly Minter

Kelly guest worship leads at our church and has become a great friend! This was taken one weekend when Margaret came down with her. It was great having them both here!

Bathing Beauties...

Notice the position of the goggles...hillarious!! :-)

Every girl needs a pink fur hat!

Too cute...

This is one of my favorites. She is about 98% of the time in a great mood, and very social. I think this shot shows her personality. Love her.

What a Ham!

This is Kaila's "Pose" ... decided today to put pigtails in the hair, she doesn't normally look this goofy!! :-) LOL.

Ohio???? WHY?

Because Michael had the all important job of ring bearer at cousin Kelly's wedding (oh, and mommy sang)!!! How cute is the too big tuxedo?? We had a blast in Ohio, the weather was gorgeous, got to see lots of family and catch up. Mick's fav?? Seeing his "tuzzins, tyle and AJ" (that's, cousins, Kyle and AJ)!! :-)

On the Carousel

Smiling for the camera, Kaila LOVES the merry-go-round. She belly laughed most of the ride, kept moving my hands so that I was definitely NOT holding onto her. Amazing how two kids from the same house can be completely different! Michael prefers to sit in the carriage versus the horse!



We went to the Columbus Zoo two weeks ago. This is Mick in the aquarium. What a fabulous zoo. We had a blast.

Capt Kaila

Had to put this one in here...Kaila sat with Mick's Captain Hook
hat on for over a half an hour! Laughing and throwing it up in the air. What a hoot!

Karate Graduation

This is Mick at his karate graduation. He moved up to an Orange Belt (as you can see!). He was SO excited and can't wait till the next one to get his Green Belt. His teachers say he's doing excellent and have invited him to be a part of the "leadership" program...we'll see about's a HUGE time commitment.

Family Photo

This is one of the only family pics we've got. Was taken in Estes Park, CO in August. How cute...Ryan and I match! :-)

1st Day Of School

This is Michael Cameron Floria on his First Day of Preschool! How exciting is this?!? He's riding in daddy's Jeep, which NOW of course, he thinks is the ONLY way to get to school!

Welcome to the 21st Century!

Okay, everyone's doing it, so I've got to, too! Hopefully I'll be able to keep on top of this thing! Please come visit often and I'll try my best to keep everyone updated with new pics of the kiddos!
