Settling in

We are starting to come out of the unpacking marathon that has been going on this past month. We really are almost done unpacking thanks to so much help from friends and family. Randy's new job is great. He is traveling a lot more which I don't love but he loves his work which is always a plus.
Here is another great photo from our session with my good friend Eva Barnett. Her website is Check it out. She works anywhere in the Boise area of Idaho. I just love that picture.
The girls are doing great. Josie has started in her journey of becoming a young woman... (girls you know what I mean) It was a very hard day for her. She was totally freaked out. I guess all our talks about what was coming didn't quite get through. She is definately not 8. I'm guessing she is at least 11. We still need to have a dental exam to really know.
I am starting another grand adventure. We are homeschooling all the kids starting in the fall. I have enrolled them in it is an online charter program and it looks like just what we are looking for. My friend Janet is involved with it and it sounds great. I am really excited.
We continue to get the house closer to all cleaned up and usable. There are still quite a few weeds to battle with but I know by the end of summer it won't even look like the same yard.
I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying life. I know I am.  :)

Yeah... Birthday Season is Over!

We had our last birthday of the season on Sunday. Thank goodness! I love birthdays but seriously 9 in a row gets a little old. I'll post pictures from each if I remember to load my pictures from my phone before I post next.
I just got back from women's conference in Provo. I love going, and this year I got to bring a dear friend. It was her first year to go and we had a blast. I also was there with three of my sisters and my mom. We got to run around BYU and get spiritually filled. What better way could you spend a couple of days. SO fun!!!
Randy has yet another interview on Thursday so wish us luck. It is going on ten months of paying for two mortgages and things are a bit tight. We are still trying to get back to Idaho so we can rent the house here and live in the gangsta house in Wilder. Hee Hee. Look to an older post about it getting shot up if you aren't sure what I'm talking about.
The thing I remember most from conference besides not getting any sleep was that God appreciates the things we do for him. I had never thought about that before. If you are feeling under appreciated just remember that the eye in the sky that watches all you do also is thankful for your efforts.
Have a great day!!!

Birthday Season

In the dead of winter after the holidays when everyone else has nothing to do till spring we are busy with our family holiday season. All our birthdays except 1 are from Jan until April. We have at least two each month. That makes for a lot of cake and tablecloths. Here are a couple pictures of the first Four that have happened in the last month and a half.
Randy's was Jan. 13th I don't know why we have no pictures of his but oh well.
Here is Matthew's Jan 22 
 Naia's Feb. 5
And Josie's Feb. 22
It was so fun to have Josie's party. She had a few friends over and they played pin the tiarra on the princess and drop the hairclips into the jar. We also had a piniata. I love low key birthday parties. Luckily we don't have friend parties for the babies just the kids in school so it's not too crazy yet.

Our next round of birthdays starts next week with Jacob's on the 6th and mine on the 7th. Wow I'm seriously going to gain 10 pounds just from all the cake.
