Happy Holidays!!!

It's hard to believe it's this time of year again! My little baby Sam is 1yr old now, and Taylor will be 3 in just a few months... They are getting so big and smarter every day. It wont be much longer before Samantha is walking. She gets so frustrated sometimes because she wants to just get up and walk around but can't quite do it yet by herself. Taylor is talking more and amazes me daily by things she says or does. They love the Christmas lights around the house and keep pulling them off the ET center. hehe
We are still enjoying it here in MO other than the freezing weather, but wish we were closer to family this time of year. We miss you all! We hope you have a wonderful Christmas Season & Happy Holiday Season!!!!

Such cuties!!! I love my sweet girls.


I know, I know. I am a big slacker. It's been a lil crazy around here the last few months, so I haven't been able to get on this. Dan and I had surgery back in April for our gall bladders, so we were kinda outta commission for a lil while. Then Joe came home from his mission in May, woohoo. We are glad to have him back home. During all this, Dan decides he is going to go back to school to get his masters, so we are trying to pack everything and get it together, so Cathy can move into the trailor, mean while, she is getting ready for her wedding on the 11th of June. Then pack up, go to Alpine for the fam reunion, and then head on out to Warrensburg, MO. My is crazy. It has slowed down a little bit, but Dan is still looking for a job, have a few good possibilities still, so hoping that works out very soon. We are almost outta money. :P Dan dad broke a few vertibre in his back last month, so we went out to TN for a week to help his mom and to visit. It was nice to go see the family and friends. But always good to be back in your own home. The girls are growing so fast. Especially Sam. She will be 8mo old this month!!! Scary. She's working on getting ready to crawl, so it won't be too much longer...Taylor is talking more and more every day, and definately figuring out the whole 2yr attitude. She can still be the sweet little girl I know and love, but oh goodness watch out! hehe Life is so much fun isn't?!?! I am surviving. One day at a time. Some days are definately better than others, but we are doing good. This is a nice little place. The weather has been soo nice, I'm a little worried about this winter...It's very beautiful and green out here.

Happy Easter

Summer time already!!!

So, it's been a lil while since I wrote on I'll give you a brief has been a lil hectic and crazy...Sam is doing great, she got to come home after 2 wks in the hospital, not fun at all. She will be 6mo old already here shortly. She's definately gonna be taller and bigger than Taylor. She's already 15lbs. Taylor's still 24. hehe She's just gonna be short like her momma I guess...They are both doing well, growing more every day. Taylor is 2 now, and definately likes to remind us on a regular basis. It's crazy, but she's still a cutie. We are in the process of potty training too, so that has been fun all in itself. :P We enjoyed having my mother-in-law come out here for a week in March, sadly due to the flu we didn't get to do as much as we would have liked. But oh well, you do what you can I guess. Last month Dan and I both had gall bladder surgery, mine was on Mon & his was Wed...ohh that was interesting, but luckily my mom was there to save the day again. She's just wonderful like that. They have helped out a lot. We are both recouperating well from it. Although with some other medical problems, Dan has been on medical leave from work for the last few weeks. So that has been bitter-sweet. It's nice having him around to help and spend time with the girls and I, but it's hard to get things done around the house sometimes...hehe
My lil bro Joe comes home from his mission this week and we are so excited! It's hard to believe 2 yrs are already up!
And those of you who know my youngest sis Cathy, she is getting married next month on the 11th. She's just a lil excited. hehe It is right between 2 family reunions so it will be a busy month.
We have also been looking at several possibilities for moving and jobs and school, so that has definately taken a crazy different turn. Life sure can be unpredictable. The next few years definately will be interesting though. It looks as though we will be moving to Warrensburg MO next month. Dan will be attending the Univ there doing their ESL graduate program. It's kind of a last minute thing that actually just came up today, but that's where we are suppose to be, so it will all work out one way or another. Wow life sure can change quickly can't it.

Happy New Year!!!

Hello everyone!!! Yes, it has been a while. It has been crazy as usual here. The time has just gone by so fast I can't believe it. This year isn't going to slow down at all either I'm afraid. Taylor is growning a lil more every day. It's fun to see how much she is learning. She is definately getting to her terrible twos and thinking she needs to throw tantrums. It's kinda funny sometimes. The other day she got upset about something, and I was in the bathroom, so she walks down the hall with her little wimper, looking for me, and once she did, she throws herself onto the floor onto her back and starts fussing "like woe is me..." hehe I had to try not to laugh. She is a cutie though. Definatley has her own personality. (She finally has a little bit of hair I can do something with. hehe
Sam is growing, and getting cuter every day. She looks a lot like Taylor did. She's had kind of a hard week. We have been in the hospital almost a week now with her. She got rsv. Poor thing, she has been a real trouper and fighter. She is doing much better, but is pretty hoarse and sore from them having to suction out her nose and such, and from crying. This morning found she is a little anemic, so it will be at least tomorrow or Saturday before she will get to come home. Poor Taylor has had a hard time with it too, and gets upset every time we have to leave her somewhere to go watch the baby. It has been a tough week for all of us, but thanks to wonderful family and friends, we have made it through a lot easier. Thanks to all of you who have offered prayers in her behalf. We love you.
Well, Dan is busy with work, and trying to get things worked out to attend grad school in the fall. So BIG change!!! If he gets accepted, we will be moving to Charleston, South Carolina...(yikes!!) Kinda bitter sweet, excited about new experiences and new place, etc...but its a looong ways from home. We would be a lil closer to Dan's parent's but still a lil bit of a drive. About 6hrs, which means with kids, about 7hrs. So we will see what happens with that. But it looks like he has the possibility of an assistantship, which would give us a place to live & pay a little bit, plus help pay tuition. So it is slowly coming together. So you all will have to come visit us and we will go to the beach!
So over all we are doing well. Taking it one day at a time. But considering everything going on in the world, we have been very blessed. Dan hasn't been really affected job wise, which is nice. Life is ok. We are surviving. Hehe
