The new craze

Back in June when we went to Texas, my brother in law gave us a copy of Toy Story and I realzed my kids had never seen it. So we watched it on the trip and they love it! They want to watch it all the time. Every weekend we have a movie night and I don't know why I even bother asking what they want to watch. In fact, yesterday they were both sick. They are much better today, but yesterday they were so sick they just layed on the couch all day, and they watched it twice! (thier request) They even picked out Toy Story backpacks for school. It is so fun to see them enjoying it. I wonder what the next big thing will be!

Cute boys

Wish me luck

Well, only 41 days until we leave. Not that I am counting down, I just want to make sure I manage my time so I get everything done. (Then why am I on the comuter? I don't know). So, being realistic, I know I have to pack everythimg on my own. My husband has no time. And I will admit it, I like packing everything because I want things a certain way. But don't tell my husband I admitted it. My husband has talked me into moving ourselves instead of having the military move us. (He's promised me a new desk, among other things that I have agreed upon) So, I scheduled to work on a room every week. Last week I focused on our extra bedroom. I organized it, packed up things we aren't curently using, like scrapbooks and such. And I finished it. This week, I scheduled to work on the garage. We have a lot of crap in our garage. All our baby stuff we are keeping for the next baby. All our holiday stuff. Our winter clothes, and a pile of stuff we need to go donate, or sell at a garage sale, broken things that we are "going to fix when we have time". Last week my husband comes in from the garage and says "I just saw a black widow and a scropian in the garage". So, needless to say, I'm not really excited about getting out there. I don't want the kids in there, so I was thinking of going out while they are napping, but by then it will probably be 100 degrees or more. So, wish me luck this week as I tackle the garage. I'll just pray that the heat and the arachnids don't hurt me.

We have been busy lately. As soon as we got back from our trip we got back to work. Joe was called as EQP, and I am busy with primary. Joe has had a lot of long work days. The kids are doing well. We have been doing a lot of arts and craft project. I started typing and reorganizing all my recipes. Which now I am wondering why because I have about 37 other projects I am also working on, but whatever. We have also been frequenting the pool and the playground(when it isnt 107). Last night Joe and I went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter, which was awesome! It was like when we were dating and would stay up all night! Of course today I am running on 3 1/2 hours of sleep, so if I spell a word wrong, you know why. Joe was also promoted last week! We had some cake and a little getogether for him. He works so hard for the family and I am so proud of hime! I love him!

It's official...

We have orders, and we will be moving back to the east coast. I didn't plan on leaving this area quite so soon, but I know it will be good. I am so excited to move back, but I am going to miss it here so much! I love it here! I love the weather, the branch, the primary, the post. I have really enjoyed living here. My husband will be going to school next year, and graduate in December. Then he will be stationed there. So, when are we moving? Well, that is something we have been musing over for a week or so. Our original plan was to leave the week of Thanksgiving and head to our new place, unpack, enjoy Christmas, and then classes begin Jan 5th (kind of early, but whateve). Anywho, last month we got a call from our renters who are renting our house and they informed us that they will be moving out at the end of the month. Well, that is great that when we return, we can just move right into our house, but until then, we have a mortgage to pay.So, the decision is, The Joe will take 2 weeks off in September and we will move out to NC, he will help us get settled, and the kids will be able to start preschool without missing too much of the new year. So, we will have a couple of tight months paying our mortgage and our rent here, but it will be fine. I have gone back and forth about this, prayed about it, talked about it, thought about it, and this is the plan. I'm not crazy about being there without Joe for two months, but I'm sure it will fly by.
In the mean time, Joe was promoted to 1LT yesterday. We had a fun little party with some friends of ours who also got promoted the same day. I will post pictures soon. As my brother would say. A good time was had by all.
I am looking forward to getting to NC during my favorite time of the year - FALL! I love the east coast in the fall.
