Update from the Road

Well we haven't quite made it to Chicago yet but we are on our way. We are still in Denver visiting some friends but we are leaving this afternoon and hope to be at our new home by tomorrow evening. I am a little frustrated though because our laptop died a few days ago and until we can have someone check it out or we can buy a new one we won't be able to access the internet as much as we would like. Right now I am posting this from a library in Denver and I'll probably be using the library in Chicago for a while. We are all holding up well...the kids handle all the drving better than I do sometimes! We hope everyone is well and we will be in touch soon.

Keeping with Tradition

Whenever I get pregnant I cut my hair. I don't know why that is. Maybe because it's the only thing about my body I feel like I can control...who knows. I was thinking that I would wait till after the baby came this time but I just didn't have the patience. I'm pretty happy with it and luckily Mark has always been a fan of my short hair.

Good Friends

Ryan & Melanie


Ammon & Chalise


David (Mark's brother) & Lis



The kids - Addie (Ammon & Chalise's), Ethan, Liv and Cada (Ryan & Melanie's)


Melanie & I are both due (it's her second) the same week. She is having a boy.




We have some great friends here in Cedar that we are going to miss a lot! It's been fun to hang out and relax with these guys over the last few months. All of us wives in the group also had scrapbook nights every Thursday night that I always looked forward to. We usually ended up talking and watching The Office more than actually accomplishing anything but, hey, it was really just an excuse for us to get together anyway. It was always fun! Last Friday we all got together for one last big party and had a blast. We will miss you guys!

On the Move

I just wanted to post a quick update on what's going on with us. Yesterday we moved out of our apartment and we are now staying with Mark's parents for the weekend. On Monday we are headed up to my folk's house for a week while Mark finishes up some work before we leave for Chicago. Actually, once we leave my parent's house we are stopping in Denver (we lived there last summer) to spend time with some friends and then we will be on our way to our new home. I will try to keep everyone updated along the way. We are extremely excited about this summer and look forward to all of our new experiences!
