Our Sweet New Wheels

We had a divine appointment at the Toyota dealership today! Josh got a call yesterday from the dealer (who we used before) offering us a new mini van : ) We got a new van with only 17K miles for the same price each month with no money down, and for only a couple extra years than what we were already going to pay. After we left the dealership Josh and I just kept looking at each other in disbelief wondering what God has in mind for us!! Neither one of us was even thinking about a new car yesterday morning and here we are today with a great new Toyota that we both LOVE!!! We feel so blessed.

Gelsey is FAMOUS!!

Gelsey got her picture on the cover of the In & Out magazine this week!!! She went to a birthday party at Sweet & Sassy a couple of weeks ago and they used pictures from that birthday party in a story about the store. If you haven't had the chance to check out a sweet & sassy and you have girls you should make the trip! It is a PARADISE for little girls with glitter, lipgloss, perfume, webkinz, jewelry and everything little girls LOVE! The girls have a blast going in there everytime, and it's not too bad for Josh either : ) The issue of the In & Out came out today and will be out for a week, Gelsey thinks it is the coolest thing ever to have her picture in there (and more than once)

Happy Birthday Josh!!!

Today is Josh's birthday, YIPEE!! He got this new track suit for his birthday which is really comfortable I hear. The girls decorated the house for him with streamers (pink is what he had to have, all girls for two more months : )) Tonight we will mostly just relax and have some dinner and enjoy his company. He just keeps getting better each year it has been such a joy to share all of these years with him, I can't wait for the years we have ahead!!
Happy Birthday Babypie!! We LOVE You!!

Catching up & Stubborn old Frankie!!

Well I am kind of a slacker with my blogging lately! With school starting and Josh buying a business my mind has been elsewhere. I took a picture of the family picture we had taken and looking at it you really can't tell how fake we look in the real thing. It is really kind of funny looking, it looks like Josh is wearing make-up and we have all been airbrushed! We still like it though!

Josh and I had an anniversary two days ago which was wonderful!! This has been the best four years of my life and I am soo excited that I know it will keep getting better! Josh and I started a tradition of buying a cross each year on our anniversary, it all started when we found a really great cross on our honeymoon. I tried but couldn't really get a great picture of the one we picked out this year but it is really awesome!

We also got to have a 3D ultrasound last week : ) However, stubborn old Frank had his hand over his face the whole time. We got one picture of half of his face and a picture of his feet. It was still really amazing though!! We could see him moving his hands and feet and we could see his heart beating! God has blessed us in such a wonderful way and I just can hardly wait to meet my little man.

Equestrian Jillian

Jillian has had a fun time the last several months learning to ride a horse. Here is some footage of her riding last night, it is really dark but you can still see. Her instructor is moving to Kansas at the end of the month so this will be it for her lessons for a while. While we were there Gelsey got to do a little riding also which was great because she has been asking me to ride for weeks now! She was exstatic to say the least!

Oh the joys of living in Arizona

Look what Josh found while cleaning a pool, I think I will just let the pictures speak for me, YIKES!!!

Happy Birthday/Anniversary Extravaganza

Happy Birthdays and Anniversary to me and Josh : )!! We decided to buy ourselves some new drapes. They are soo great! I had no idea how much of an impact they would have on the family room but they really make it cozy in here!

We had Josh's mom, Merrilee over for the long weekend which was a lot of fun! We really just hung out and enjoyed each others company. With the exception of going to a mass baptism on Sunday and dinner on Saturday we just stayed home and vegged out.
More of that vegging out I was talking about : )
