Happy Anniversary


Jon and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary yesterday. Paul and Becky kept the kids overnight so we were able to go out for a nice dinner and not rush home to get kids in bed. We went to Azul in La Jolla. It is a really nice Steakhouse that just opened up on Monday. The food was delicious and the waitress was so sweet she brought us a piece of chocolate cake for desert and said it was on her as long as we shared. We had a really good night. Can't believe it has been 5 years already.

Andrew opens a present

You'll need to stop the music player at the bottom of this page before starting this video.

Be honest, none of us REALLY want to open a present and get this...

Happy Birthday Andrew





Today was Andrew's 3rd birthday. I can't believe he is already 3. Seems like not that long ago he was Ashlee's age and just starting to crawl.
He had school today so he took cookies and some party favors to the class today. They gave him a birthday hat to wear. He had a lot of fun. We had Jon's parents over for pizza and cake tonight. Andrew had a great day and loved all his presents. He got a big wheels bike from Jon's parents and we got him a tool work bench which were both a big hit. Happy Birthday Andrew! We love you.

Ashlee Crawling

video

Ashlee started crawling yesterday. She has been so close and has only gotten as far as moving one arm and one leg forward before she would fall over but I guess she put things together overnight because she is all of a sudden able to crawl forward a few feet. Looks like she is taking after her brother he also started crawling at 6 1/2 months of age. I was hoping she would start crawling on Andrew's birthday but I guess she couldn't wait a few more days. Andrew started crawling on Jon's birthday. I can't believe how fast they are growing.

On another note I just got a new position at work. I will now be working the PM shift. Which means more sleep for me. I will now be working from 2:30-11:00 pm. Jon is going to start going in a little earlier and coming home at 2:00 so I can head off to work. I will be working 4 days a week which is 1 day more than I have been working but at least I can come home and sleep at night. Staying up for 2-3 days has really been getting hard. I won't start my new shift until we hire and I help train my replacement on night shift. So I still have another month or so of night shift, but things are looking up. Jon parents are also going to help out on those nights that Jon has a meeting and I have to work but hopefully we can schedule it most of the time where I work when he doesn't have a meeting.

We got so many great pictures while we were in Nevada visiting my family I had to post a few more.


My parents with all the grandkids.

Me with my brother and sister.

Andrew had a great time helping to feed the horses and chickens, and then chase them.
We just got back from visiting my parents for a week. We had such a good time. The kids had so much fun playing together. and of course Papa saddled up one of the horses for them.


Of course no visit would be complete without Papa saddling up one of the horses.


Jon and Cody battled it out with Guitar Hero on the Nintendo Wii.


My mom had gotten the girls matching Christmas outfits but since we won't be together for Christmas we took the opportunity to get a picture of them in their matching outfits together.


"Cheese!"


My sister and her family were able to come down for a couple of days. It was great to have us all there at the same time.

Halloween




It has been so busy the last few weeks I finally have a chance to get our Halloween pictures up. Andrew had a great time and thought it was pretty cool that he got candy for knocking on peoples door and saying Trick or Treat. He was so excited to get the candy he would say "Trick or Treat" before they even opened the door. It was cute.
