Kind of old picture, but I think it's cute! Emma left with Randi and Katie was NOT happy about it at all!
Andee after Emma and Randi left, she still says that she wants to go live in Indiana with them!

On our last walk up Spring Canyon before it snowed, Katie decided that she was going to be an airplane! She has such a funny personality!

We were really hoping that 2009 would get off to a GREAT start....boy were we wrong! After finally getting all the Christmas decorations down (they have yet to be put away) Gabe and I were looking forward to relaxing this past weekend---Andee stayed at my mom's all weekend and Katie spent the night with Gabe's parents. What we weren't expecting was for us to both get sick! I ended up dead on the couch all day Sunday with who knows what, while Gabe spent the better part of the day in the bathroom! At least the house got cleaned Saturday! LOL Katie has yet another ear infection, poor thing, I'm afraid she is going to have to get tubes put in her ears sooner or later! We need to get her hearing checked as well....might as well kill two birds with one stone I guess! Mom keeps telling me that Katie is deaf since she yells instead of talks---Gabe says that she just takes after me! :) Then today I think I have a piece of popcorn stuck between my teeth so I try dental floss to get it out----out comes half my tooth! Needless to say, this year has gotten off to a rocky start! On the brighter side of things, we are really hoping to buy our house in the next few months! We are so excited to have our first house, and we have been living in this house since October and just love it! After moving 11 times in 4 and a half years, I'm ready to settle down and not move for a LONG time (if ever)!
Enough of that......here's an update!
Katie will be 3 next month....man that makes us feel so old! I can't believe that she is growing up so fast! That means we have been back in Utah for 3 years! Where does the time go?! We are so ready to go back to Tennesee---just to visit! Amazing how much we really do miss it back there, but I know once we go there we will be ready to come back home!
Andee is in Pre-school with "Aunt" Cordie and she just loves it! She throws a fit if she can't go to school! Monday's she doesn't have school and she's mad all day long because she would so much rather be there than at Day Care!
My work just bought a new building! YAY!!! It's 10 times bigger than the one that we are now and best of all..... I get my own Office!!! I'm so excited to not have to smell the dust all the time, to not have to walk through the mess of the shop to get into my computer---just everything about it is so exciting! I'm really not looking forward to helping lay the tile and what not, but if it means I get my own space I'm definitely up for it! I absolutely love my job! I couldn't ask for a better boss, or a better work environment! When I left the Coal Mine, I missed being able to talk to all the workers and tease them--it's just my nature! But I have all that here, we all give each other a hard time, and it's just such a relaxed environment! We get what we need to get done, but we have fun doing it!
Gabe just got done taking down the Christmas decorations on Main Street, he was NOT to thrilled after just taking them all down at our house as well! He really enjoys working for the City, at least on most days! We are just thankful to have them pay 100% of our benefits even though the pay isn't the best, the benefits definitely make up for it!
That's our update for today....I really don't know how often I will remember to post on this thing....still trying to get the hang of all of it! Maybe one day it will look all cute and fancy like everyone elses, but for now, I'm still trying to figure it out! Love you guys!
