Slacking again!

Tho this time I think I have a good excuse:

Nevyn joined our family on July 29th at 5:53pm after 2 very intense hours of labor. He was 8lbs and 20 inches long. He's an absolute joy and a wonderful addition to our family.


Gyven and Kyra started school last week and are very excited about it. They are enjoying everything from riding the bus to playing on the playground and going to the library. They were both definitely ready for the new year to start. The only part they don't seem to like is the new strictness of bedtime and what time they have to get up!

I Have Been A Terrible Slacker


It has been so BUSY the last few months! In March we put in our notice to the house we were renting, as we were preparing to buy our first home! The last day of March I turned in the keys and the kids and I stayed in a hotel that night, and the next morning we picked up Patrick from the airport and began the drive from WA to OK! When we got to OK we were staying in a hotel until we closed on the house. We were supposed to close about two weeks later. That didn't happen, and the rescheduled closing date fell during a two week training class for Patrick in TX! When the closing date was rescheduled, the kids and I drove down to TX to spend some time with Patrick and see my dad and his wife. The week we were supposed to drive to my dad's and then back to OK, my van broke down! We had it repaired, and I drove it to my dad's without incident. But on the drive back to OK, the van broke down again, and this time it was all over. The repair estimate is more than the worth of the vehicle, so we called it a loss, Patrick and my dad came to rescue us from the little town in the middle of nowhere in TX where we spent the night and after we got back to OK, we rented me a vehicle to carry us through the next weekend to the again rescheduled closing date and while we got the things we needed to set up the house before we could really live there. We finally closed on the house (the picture is from that day, when we first got to the house after it was ours!), and then just a week ago we purchased a new-to-us Chevy Express van. It's been an expensive and very busy few months! And in just a couple more months we will welcome baby Nevyn, so we're trying very hard to get things unpacked and in order before he decides to make his appearance.

I've really not posted since Christmas?

Sorry, I'm really sorry.

Have some adorable pictures of the kids during our trip to Portland last week (we spent 4 days there while Patrick was attending a conference) to make up for it.






Ok, this one isn't from our trip, but it fits the 'adorable' requirement:
