Now that Christmas is over I can finally post the Christmas pictures our family took this year. Hopefully our Internet and phone will be hooked up on Dec 29! But I'm not holding my breath. Meanwhile we have temporary service with Verizon Wireless. I hope everyone had a great holiday!!

Please Stay Posted

Well we are in the new house but due to the great planning and customer service our local telphone provider has given us we are without phone or internet. As soon as I can I will post pictures of the house and update the blog. In the mean time please use my cell as it is the only way to reach me!

Fun with Grandma and Papa in the yellow house

I know it is weird but our kids call my parents Grandma and Papa in the yellow house. This is because Ali was with them when they were looking at homes and bought the yellow one they currently live in. They love going to visit. Who wouldn't when there are dogs, cats, cows and 4 wheelers. Plus cousins, fishing trips and a million other things to do there. They ask several times a week when we can go to their house. Here are some pictures of our most recent trip. The kids call Josh's parents Grandma and Papa with the mustache. They are so excited to see them for Thanksgiving.

Pictures from October

I know that October is long gone but here are some pictures from pumkin patch field trips, the Balloon Fiesta, and Halloween. For Halloween Abby was riding a unicorn, Nate rode a pony and Ali was a pink bunny. Enjoy!

Manchild Part 2 (Baby makes 6)

Title says it all. Nate is getting a brother! Josh is so thrilled. He says he has an heir and a spare. We went to Sneak Peek Ultrasound on Friday but the 3D/4D pictures are not the best because the baby was so skinny. He had his legs crossed the whole time but they are pretty sure it's a boy. In one of the pictures it looks like he is sucking his thumb. We get to go back around Christmas time when the baby is nice and fat and they say the pictures will be better. My official due date is March 9, a week before our 10 year anniversary. Sorry honey, no trip to Hawaii this year. I hope no one is offended that this is the first that they heard about my pregnancy. With two miscarriages and horrible morning sickness we always wait a while before we say anything. It has actually made the pregnancy go by a little faster.

Cordoba is getting a Temple!!!!!

Some of you know that Josh and I served in the same mission, Argentina Cordoba Mission or La MAC. Yesterday during the morning session President Monson announced that Cordoba will be getting it's own temple. Josh just broke down in tears and all I could think about were all of the faithful members that I worked with who were promised one so many years ago. While I was there is was rumored in one of my areas that the Church already owned a piece of land big enough for a temple (an area called Nueve de Julio) by the road that goes on to Carlos Paz. I will be excited to see where the actual site is. While Argentina has a temple in Buenos Aires, it is an 8-10 hour trip one way by bus to get there (no one has cars). From La Rioja and Catamarca I believe it is almost 2 days one way (also areas in our mission I served in). So this is a great area because it will serve so many in this great country who don't have the funds to make that long trip. Another testimony that the Lord blesses the faithful and fullfils all of his promises and prophesies!! Anyone feel like a road trip to go to the dedication? Viva Argentina! Here is the news

Soccer Fun

Ali and Abby are both in soccer this year. Ali loves the fact the her dad is helping coach. Abby has already asked when he will coach her team. Here are some recent pictures of them playing. It was a great game for each because both Ali and Abby scored three goals each to help their teams win!!! Sorry some of the pictures are blurry.

I finally gave in!

After months of enjoying the blogs of family and friends I have finally given in! I kept saying that I don't have time to do things like that but I feel like this might be the only way to keep in touch with most of you. I hope that I can keep it updated with new events in our lives.
Josh is busy with work and coaching Ali's soccer team. I am a true soccer mom with both Ali and Abby in soccer this year. Nate is all boy and like my little (huge) backpack that goes everywhere with me. It has been crazy but we are loving it. We are selling our current home and waiting for our new one to be completed. Our closing date is next month in October but as you can tell by the pictures below that isn't going to happen. So for now we don't know when we will move but at least they started to dig the pool!
