Well I am finally sitting down to update my blog! The past few months have been pretty eventful! We found out about 3 weeks ago that we are going to be moving. Josh got a promotion with his job and we are relocating to Oklahoma City. We will actually be living in Edmond, and his office will be in the city. He will have about a 30 min commute everyday, but I think it will be worth living in Edmond. We are sad to leave all of our friends and family here, but are excited to see what this next chapter will bring in our lives. 

Josh is now a college graduate! We are all so very proud of him. We really enjoyed spending time with all our family! CONGRATS JOSH!
I cant believe the girls are growing so fast! They are almost 2 and 4!! Time sure has flown by! Cait is now talking, a lot!! She will repeat anything you say, and is using sentences! Madeline is learning so much, using a pencil, writing her name!! Unbelievable! 
We did catch the flu bug that was going around! We all had it except for Josh! Lucky him, we were all pretty worthless for about 2 weeks. 

We are trying to sell our house, its been on the market for a week now. But the past few weeks have been hours and hours of cleaning and painting... unfortunately there is still more painting to do.

We have had a few trips to OKC, to check things out. I was happy to find out they have an In The Raw there. Its my favorite place to have sushi here! Josh's company paid for us to stay the night there, we really enjoyed ourselves and getting to know the town a little better.
It is now spring break, and I am looking forward to the week. The weather looks as if its going to be pretty warm! It will be a week filled with trips to the park and the zoo! At the end of this month I will no longer be working at the Mothers Day Out or teaching the youth at our church. I am not looking forward to packing and such. 

Hopefully this time it wont take me 2 months to update my blog! Enjoy the pics!

Christmas was GREAT!! Madeline finally got it! When she came out Christmas morning she was just gushing with excitment! She looked at the things santa brought, then looked over at the place of empty cookies and half drank milk and yelled " Santa all his cookies and milk!" It was the most precious thing ever.. of course, I teared up a little!

We rang in the new year with some good friends! I cant believe the year has flown by so fast!
And, I had a birthday yesterday! I am greatful for my friends and family! Here are some pics of the last few weeks!

The past few weeks have flown bye! Amanda and Kaden are now living with us, and it has been good. They moved in Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Watching 3 kids is a little harder than I expected, but once I get Kade's schedule adjusted it will be Great!

Thanksgiving was at my house this year! It was fun. Hosting is always a hard job, I felt like I was always cleaning. :) I really enjoyed everyone coming over! I haven't sat down to upload all my pictures from Thanksgiving, but I stole one from my aunt. (thanks cris)

Josh has been job hunting, he has an interview in 3 minutes, hopefully it will be the job he has been looking for.

Tonight I am going to the Christmas Gathering at my church. I went last year and had a great time, so I am really looking foward to it.

Its been so cold! Brrrrr! If you know me you know I hate cold weather! I wish I could hibernate all winter. Cold weather is not motivating to me. I would rather lay in a warm bed till all hours of the day, than face the cold.

Josh turned 28 on Monday. The girls and I took him lunch to work and ate with him. Then we went and Madeline picked out a birthday cake for him. Baskin Robbins ice cream cake!!! YUMM. Although, his favorite cake in german chocolate, none of us like it. Then we came come home, I cooked dinner and we had cake! A small little birthday party for him. Madeline sang happy birthday all night long. It was perfect. I guess you might be wondering what we got him for his birthday... well he recieved his gift about a month ago. He got new golf clubs, and bag.

Tomorrow is our 4 year anniversary! Its been a fast 4 years! 2 kids, 4 dogs (2 of which only lasted a few days), 1 house, 6 cars, and hours of lost sleep! But I tell you, I wouldnt have it any other way. There is no one else I would rather spend my life with than Josh. Sure, Josh and I have had our seasons of good and not so good, but its perfect!

Josh finally finished his resume! He posted it on monday night, and had 2 calls on tuesday. Hopefully God will open some doors for Josh to get the right job for the family!

Perfect fall day!

The weather was AMAZING today! The high was around 80 with a cool breeze, we had to be outside!

So I took, what will probably be the last for a while, opprotunity to take the girls to the zoo. It was by far the best trip we have had yet! Not alot of people were there, and we went backwards through the zoo, because I wanted Madeline to see what she is usually to tired to see.
Because the weather was so great, we saw alot of the animals. The baby chimps were expecially playful today, they would jump off the glass making Madi laugh sooo hard. Cait loved it so much, except when the baby chimp was about 2 inches from her face... she said "no, no, no." It was so cute. If you put your hand on the glass, they would put their had over yours. We had a great time. Here are a few of our pics! The pumpkin and hay bails were left over from HalloZOOween.

kid stuff

What is it about Halloween that makes you feel like a kid again? Maybe its the costumes and the candy.
The girls had so much fun trick or treating! Madeline wasnt scared of anything, she just kept reassuring her self the whole night, " mom, its just pretend." Cait couldnt wait to go up to the doors and say " tee-teet." It was absolutely adorable! For the past 2 years we head down to a neighborhood in Mid-town, everyhouse seems to be envolved and decked out! The candy is ok, but the atmosphere is amazing!! There are about 100-200 kids walking all around, it reminds me of being little. :)
At the end of the night, Madeline looks at me and says, "mommy, will you carry my basket, its to heavy" I laugh and tell her its time to head home. BUT not before a pit stop at my moms house. My mom made her day, she gave her the new Tinkerbell movie! Madeline was so excited. She has been begging me for it! With Christmas around the corner, I was telling her to wait, so you could imagine her excitement! She stayed up until midnight with very heavy eyes to watch the whole thing!

Josh and I attended a costume party on saturday night. It was a good time. I love dressing up, and we take it pretty seriously!
I hope everyone had as much fun as we did for halloween! :)
