I've thought about posting a few times, but just didn't. Shame on me!

Ian and Evan turned a year old on the 3rd. My how time has flown by. They are up to 21lbs now and trying so hard to walk. It's cute watching them get excited about standing on their own. And since when did the 1 year appointments require a blood draw? A butterfly needle in my baby's arm or hand is not what I want to go through again! Evan had to get stuck in each hand because he pulled his hand away and the needle came out.

Aiden is asking for lunch so I better go.

Boxes, boxes, and MORE boxes!

Last Friday we finally got our things delivered. YAY! I'm so excited to have my nice comfy bed back because, even with carpet, the floor is not a bit comfy! Over the weekend Joe and I managed to get quite a few of the boxes emptied out. Some things are just randomly shoved somewhere until shelving can be put up and we need to get a stud finder to do that. Other things are resting comfortably in their new home. I can't wait to get done so I can show after pictures of the house. Still lots of work to do though so I better get back to it! Take care everyone.

Vacation has been fun. Grandparents have been able to dote on their grandbabies. Aiden has been able to swim in a pool too cold for Mommy. Ian and Evan were able to show off how they've changed and progressed since Christmas. Joe got to swim, grill, drink, fish on the beach, and catch up with his parents poolside. And I got to enjoy it all. I even got to spend a bit of time window shopping for our new house and puppy. Although we mainly window shopped we did score some pieces at an awesome price. From Grandma and Grandpa we got a leather couch and chair, 2 tall, marble topped wrought iron end tables, and a short, marble top wrought iron coffee table. Super excited for the solid oak dining table, 6 chairs, and a china cabinet/hutch we got. We also got Aiden an All-in-One bed with trundle and 2 mattresses. It's got cubbies, a 'crawl through' closet, 7 drawers, and a spot for a t.v. or computer with pull out keyboard shelf.

Today also happens to be my sixth anniversary! Joe and I are going to see Clash of the Titans in 3D then dinner at The Fish House. Maybe we can squeeze in some more window shopping or just a quiet walk with only the two of us. Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

Week of relaxation in Florida!

Signed for the house on Tuesday and spent the day yesterday driving to Grandma and Pawpa's. Aiden was so excited to be coming for a visit. He spent some time in the pool goofing around with Pawpa. No idea what the plans are for today, but since the rest of the week has been so productive it doesn't really matter!

A picture of the house is below for a peek. To see more head over to Facebook. I'm so excited that the house has one floor, carpets, and closets that I don't care if it's a tad small. Type at you later!

We made it!

Our total travel time was about 27 hours, but we're finally here and were lucky enough to get a house our first day. It's got closets and carpet and only one floor so it's good enough for me! Hoping to get pictures up in the next day or two on facebook. Maybe I'll pop a few on here too. Joe and I have phones and have an appointment to get internet and such once we get back from Florida. Gotta go for now, Evan is being Mr. Fussypants today. Get hold of me on facebook if you want my number!

Good bye and see you later

Today is the day and it started at 330am. Twins were a terror to get to sleep last night. They woke up around 9pm and didn't want to go back to bed. Joe used the pull out bed and our massive amount of luggage to corral them. Eventually they went back to sleep. The shuttle picks us up at 430 so we can fly out of Nuremberg at 730. Our day of flying doesn't end until we land in Alexandria at 930pm central time. When our day will finally end with a bed is anyones guess.

The last six years seem to have flown by. I've seen some stuff and met a lot of great people. I need to get off of here before I turn into a ball of tears. There will always be a place in my home for my friends. So keep in touch and know that this isn't good bye, merely an extended see you later.

One Last Hurrah

Its Friday afternoon which means I'll be flying high in two more wake ups. After six years I am ready for a change. I'll miss the friends I have made though. We've had a lot of good nights out back around the fire. Our coolest fire night wasn't that long ago. It was raining out, but that didn't stop us. Joe and Ela moved the fire table around front and we burned under the porch. The warmth of the fire mixed with the sound of rain was both refreshing and soothing. It was the perfect ending to a less than perfect day. I love my friends and I'm sad to say good-bye. We're gonna have one last fun packed night tonight. So lets have an awesome night and leave it at "See you later."

Short one

So...... the weekend zoomed by and it wasn't all good. I have pink eye in BOTH eyes. Fun fun

Saturday got rather crazy, leaving it at that, and I spent Sunday recovering.

This is super crazy mass cleaning day because tomorrow we are getting booted to the curbside, well the hotel. 5 days and a wake up to go.

Here we go.

I've decided to do a start over with this blog, keep it more family oriented. Stampin' up has added a blog feature to the DBWS, so I'll go there for my crafting. (A DBWS is basically a page you can enter the Stampin' Up store from and give me credit for anything you buy.) I may keep some of the links, but if not I'll at least keep the link to my DBWS.

On to the blogging...

Yesterday afternoon the sun decided to shine and the temperature got up to about 58. Today it's supposed to get up into the 60s! Crossing my fingers for that! All of Aiden's friends go to school or a part-day preschool thing. He gets lonely and doesn't know what to do with himself since all his stuff is gone. Sunny days let me kick him out for some run around time.

Aiden is super excited to be moving. He can't wait to go see Papa and Grandma so he can go swimming in the pool and fishing in the Gulf. Aiden still likes his hair short, but he's letting it grow out just a little bit. He is also very excited to go to school in the fall. I think it's a little scary to see how big my baby boy is getting. The next thing I know he'll have a girlfriend and be driving!

He's still over the moon about his brothers though. He tries to play with them, but has to be constantly reminded not to be too rough. Aiden makes funny noises and goofy faces, sometimes right in their faces. But they love it and have a ball when he plays with them.

Ian and Evan are growing by leaps and bounds. Ian is a pound heavier and the doctors say Evan is about a quarter inch taller. Ian started getting teeth first, but Evan has at least 2 more teeth now. They are crawling and pulling up, therefore, getting into everything! It's so funny to compare the amount of hair they were born with and still have to the lack of head covering Aiden had for over a year! The curls are popping up all over now. It's interesting to see curls in brown when I'm so used to seeing them in blonde. Maybe they will turn blonde in the summer sun. It'll be nice to take them outside and see what they think about grass!

I'm so ready to be back in the states. We leave Easter morning and get into Louisiana around 9:30 at night. We are hoping to get settled in a bit before taking leave. I have a neighborhood and floor plan picked out that I hope we can get. We are number 14 out of 46 on the waiting list. We're hoping to be bumped to number one once we get there. I'm not looking forward to staying in single room hotel rooms for very long. So please, oh please bump us to number one!

Another exciting thing about going to the states, other than 24 hour stores, is that we will finally be able to get a puppy. We've put a deposit on a German Shepard puppy due April 12th. We are going to get her from Two River Kennel. Still thinking on a name though. Any suggestions?

I think this has been a pretty good restart. So I'll add one of my favorite pictures of my three munchkins.

Okay so I really suck at getting on this thing and posting. You already know this though. BUT!!! I'll be flying in to the states on Easter!! Yay, finally back to 24 hour stores! I'm hoping once we get settled in I can make a list of New "House" Resolutions. One of them being to get on here weekly if not daily. Maybe I can make myself a daily schedule and block out some time each day for this, get me focused. Okay twins are fighting so I'm out for now.
