It's getting close!! It looks like we just might make it in before Christmas!! They are tape and texturing now, and will be ready for siding and rock next week. We'll start the flooring in about three weeks, maybe four. We are hoping to do the flooring during Thanksgiving break. We feel so blessed, especially with the house we are renting right now, it's been great!

Today I start packing for the BIG move....around the corner. We have anticipated this day for 8 months and now it's here! We are so excited about this new adventure, but a little sad about leaving the house and neighbors. So many fun times! But the really cool thing about this move is, all I have to do if I miss my neighbors is walk around the corner to visit them. Pretty cool. John is mourning all the hard work that went into the yard, but is excited about the possibilities with the new one. I have to admit as well, I'm mourning all the painting I did in this house, but I know that the new owner loves it so that makes me feel better. So here's to you HOUSE~ thanks for all the great memories... You'll be missed.

Yesterday Olivia was awarded the "Hope of America" award at school. The award says that Olivia has demonstrated the capacity for leadership, ethical and moral character and outstanding academic accomplishment. We knew she was receiving the award last week, but decided not to tell her so she could be surprised. In the first picture she just realized I was at the assembly, in the second picture are all the recipients, in the third picture is Olivia with her teacher Mrs. Skeen, and in the last photo is Olivia with the superindendent Mr. Garrett. We are so proud of Olivia, she has always been so self-motivated~ keep up the good work Olivia, we love you.

Jayben turned 8 on the 30th of April, but waited for this weekend to get baptized because my parents wanted to come up for all the festivities (the twins birthday and the graduation) so it worked out really well. I'm so happy for Jayben~ he is such a sweetheart. I know that he really enjoyed his baptism~ he just couldn't stop smiling. It was a great day. I'm so proud of him and feel so honored to be his Mom.

Hunter turned 13 on Thursday!!! I can't believe I'm a Mom to a teenager!!! When did this happen? I'd have to say that he is the BEST teenager around~ and I'm super impressed on the his choice of friends. What a great group of boys! I feel so blessed to have Hunter as a son. When he was first born, I felt he came straight from heaven and now 13 years later I still feel he came straight from heaven~ what a wonderful kid!!! Happy Birthday Hunter~ we love you...

I have to take advantage of when Chloe is in the mood to take a few pictures~ she rarely lets me, except for this week~ well not really, if you notice in the pony tail pics she's looking the other way. I was actually asking her to look at me and smile and she pretended not to hear me. But today she wanted to take pics!!
