I don't have much time, but I had to write! About 10 minutes ago Rob got offered and accepted a new job! It is located in Sandy and is for a printing business. We are excited about it! So, we were planning on moving to Clearfield on Monday, but now we will be moving to Sandy instead! It works out okay because Rob's mom is moving to Clearfield, but hasn't sold her Sandy house yet, so we will be moving into her house as she is moving out of it. We will stay until it sells, and then we will find our own place. Anyway, I have to run, but I had to share! This week has been crazy! The interview for it was yesterday, so it's been a whirlwind week, and this weekend will be super busy!!
Happy New Year! I thought I would post some more pictures since I finally got some uploaded! So, a couple of weeks ago we were sitting at church and my kids were getting a little restless. So, in my smartness, I pulled out my camera to let them look at pictures, kind of like a book. Eden knows how to use the camera, so I was letting her hold it and look through the pictures. Well, it turns out that she KNOWS how to use the camera and all its functions because suddenly there was a flash, and wa-la, a picture of Isaac at church! I guess it's proof we went to church that day, huh?! This is a picture of Eden at her dance recital a month or so ago. I will have to download the video sometime because it was so cute! So, two weeks ago Eden came into me and asked me if I liked her hair. At first I didn't understand why, but on closer examination, I realized she had AGAIN cut her bangs pretty much to the top! Apparently they were getting in her eyes (they were finally growing out enough to reach her eyes!) so she just got rid of them! Luckily that was the only part she got to, so I attempted a fix myself. This is the before picture . . . and this is the after! Not too bad, but I did cut just a little too far on the sides and gave her some funny side bangs, but oh well! At least it wasn't as bad as the last time! I had to get a picture of EmmaLee in, so this is EmmaLee Christmas morning. Her favorite presant by far is the little play cell phone we got her! She loves it, and takes it everywhere with her! She is actually starting to talk a little! She says the usual, mama, dada, but lately will mimick most anything, but likes to say sit (I often say it to her when she is in her highchair!) hi, bye, num-num (she if food oriented!), and like I said, she will mimick most words, even if they don't always sound as much like the real words! She also loves to chase Isaac around and it has been so fun to see the two of them playing together. He can get her to laugh in a way no one else can! It's hilarious! So, that's about it for now. We still haven't had much luck with a job, although we have had a few contacts again, so we are hoping that maybe now that the holidays are over, we might actually hear back again from more. But, we are going to have to give our notice the beginning of next week for our place, so it looks like another move for us! We won't have to be out until the end of January, so we are still hopeful that maybe something will happen by then, but we will still have to move one way or another. And, unless we do get a job, it does look like we will be moving back in with Rob's mom. But, she has bought a new house up in Clearfield, by Layton, that has a basement apartment with three bedrooms, so at least it will still be somewhere new, with a little bit more room! Right now our best job possibility is actually for a printing place up in Layton, so maybe everything happens for a reason! But, who knows what will actually end up happening! All I know right now is that by the end of this new month, something will be different, one way or the other!!!
I am a wife and mother of six beautiful children! My oldest child and son passed away on August 28th, 2005 when he was 2 1/2 after a choking accident the day before. We miss him, but know he's in a better place and will always be looking out for his family! I am currently in school at USU online working towards my Family Life Studies degree and hope to one day be a marriage and family educator. Life is busy with five growing children to take care of, but we're having fun and learning as we go!
