We went to Show Low on Thursday and it snowed. I could not believe it!!! It is almost the end of May and I got snowed on. The only thing I took to Show Low was shorts! This is Jason and Dallas painting our "study"!! We had a lot of fun. It only took 3 trips to Walmart and 8 cans of paint. We 'finished' around 3 am. There is still a lot of painting to do, but at least all the big stuff got done before we moved in the next day.
Thanks so much to all my family and Dallas's family for helping us move. It was a lot of work and there is no way we could have done it without your help!!
Dallas and I got Caleb back Monday and Tuesday (Yeay!)
He found my closet and started running around in it.
Isn't he so dang cute???

He thought my belts were really fun to play hide and seek in!!

We started playing tickle bug and he thought the hat added a little bit extra.

soooooooooooooo cute!

Kyson is home!!! Here he is wire free and sleeping!!

Andrea and Jared finally home with precious Kyson!!
I am so thankfully for the time that I got to spend with Caleb these last few weeks. He is such a happy boy. His laugh is contagious. I love to look back at the few shots we got of him and remember all his smiles. Although he missed his mom and dad. I am so happy that he gets to be home with them and little baby Kyson for awhile.

We are now pseudo official homeowners!!

We signed papers this morning, a day early!!! We won't actually 'own' the home until tomorrow when it is recorded somewhere. ****So exciting****

Here's a tour through our house!!

When you walk in the front door, to your right is the stairs..

and to the left is our little kitchen...

Our front room and dining room (It's actually pretty big!)

Upstairs are the two bedrooms!!

This will be the study room:(

This is going to be our bedroom!!
Don't be jealous but there are two walk in closets!! Dallas gets one and I get one:)

Today Dallas and I spent the day with my little nephew Caleb, while Andrea and Jared spent the day with his little brother Kyson. (Kyson was taken to the hospital today for low oxygen and it was discovered that he has a heart defect. Andrea and Jared .)
Caleb is such a fun, easy going little boy!! I love his smiles and laughter which filled my day. I can't imagine how much his parents must be missing him. I was so thankful to have him with me today. After Andrea and Jared got 'settled' in at Phoenix Children's Hospital, Dallas and I stopped by with Caleb and visited Kyson. Caleb was absolutely wonderful. He laughed almost the entire time he was there. I was sure when it was time to leave, Caleb would throw a fit having to leave his Mom and Dad behind. Thankfully, like he knew what was going on, he gave them hugs, kisses and waved goodbye. That is amazing for a 2 year old. I was so thankful.
The cutest part was when we kneeled down to pray before it was time to go to bed. He folded his arms and bowed his head (almost the whole time.) It was an extra long prayer as we prayed for his little brother and he still stayed perfectly silent (only peeking every once in awhile). I was so impressed. What wonderful parents he has who have taught him at 22 months to pray.

We are all praying for little precious Kyson who will be going to surgery tomorrow morning. He is so little, it breaks my heart to think of the pain he may have to go through. I know the Lord is watching out for him and that the surgeon's hands will be guided by the Lord.



Christy's graduation!!

Christy and Zack

All the girls at Kyson's Blessing

(With Caleb and Kyson, ofcourse)

We had a hard time figuring out what boys to get in this picture. First we had Jason, Stephen, Kyson and Caleb. Then Jared popped in. Then we realized it couldn't be a family "boy" picture without Dallas. Then we realized that Zack will 'probably' be in the family soon so we should add him to the Picture. So below is the final result!!!

I just realized there are now more boys in our family than girls!! I didn't ever think that would happen. (Not including my Parents). We have 6 girls and will soon have 7 boys!!! We have been a family full of girls for so long it's kind of a funny!!??!

I have been terrible at updating our blog. Stuff has been happening(I've even taken pictures). I just haven't found the time to update.

Today Dallas and I went through our house for the last walk through before we sign papers NEXT WEDNESDAY!!

Everything is coming up soon and all of the sudden I feel like my days are speeding by. School starts 24 days from today which is a little more than 3 weeks!!

Caleb came with us to walk through our house. Dallas brought the tape measure to start measuring things and Caleb thought it was fun to pull it out then watch it snap back into the case.
