Holy Cow!!!!

Man, I think I just broke my last record of not blogging. We moved about 2 months ago and just finally got internet hooked up at home!! And because I am no longer working I will have absolutely no reason to not keep this blog updated!! I know all of you are absolutely dieing to here how things have been going!! :) Well here is just a quick little list of things:

1)Jeffs sister and her new boyfriend came to visit in June
2) Our old house sold after being in forclosure so we had until the end of June to be out of the house...luckily we found a great home in such short notice and are even thinking about buying it.
3) Got fired from Lakeside Dental...yes fired. And the reason??? I'm still wondering that myself. I had absolutely no warnings, no write-ups, no nothing; was a head assistant, had been there a year, and then after work on July 24th, was called in to HR office and was told that it was my last day and I would need to take all my belongings home!!! The biggest shock. The only reason I was given was "It's just not working out"....um, okay!?! So in the meantime, I've applied for unemployment benies but haven't recieved any yet, called every dental office in the phone book; no one is hiring, and just staying at home with my kiddies.....love it!!
4) Jeffery has started crawling...YEAH!! I can see it in his eyes, "crawling sucks, I wanna be on my feet like everyone else!" It's just a matter of time.
5) Registered the girls for school..Shannon included!! Oh My Gosh, she is starting Kindergarted this year! I can't believe it!! We went and found out her teacher; Ms. Grey at Knolls Vista. Her first day is Thursday Sept. 3. She can hardly contain herself!
6) Courtney is graduating this year!! Starting to get senior pic. info...I can't believe it!
7) Emily just had her 16th B-day!! She graduated from bottom of the line no camera, no bluetooth, no nothing cell phone to the Samsung Solstice...it's an IPhone knock off, touch screen, bluetooth, camera/video and she loves it....:)
8)Jeffery now has 6 teeth and 2 more are about to break through!!
9) Bought the girls a wakeboard back in July and they love it...they got up basically their first try and within 2 days they were cutting outside the wake! Amazing!! Just in time for us to hit our propellar on a big rock, take a chunck out of it and throw the whole motor off balance....what a way to end the summer! Thank heavens for insurance! :)
10) The guy who usually does all of the HVAC with Jeff at his work quit, leaving Jeff with ALL of the work to do by himself!! Not fun because he is literally working everyday! 114 hours in the last 2 weeks! Pay check is good, but not him being gone all of the time!
11)We went camping with some family friends of ours over Memorial weekend! We went up Icicle Creek Road. There was a mudslide wiping out the road about half way up this last winter so we were only able to make it up to 8 mile campground. It was still a lot of fun. jeffery's first camping experience.
12) Samantha had her 13th birthday. She had some friends over and went bowling. My friend Nicole made her cake, it was amazing...a volcano on the beach! Awesome!
13) The fair was here last week. Jeff had been working everyday so he didn't want to go walk around and for the older girls, it's not cool to walk around with your parents, so Nicole brought her nephew Canaan and I had Jeffery and Shannon. The two, Shannon and Canaan , had a blast on the rides! There are a few pics of that to follow.
14) Jeffery got his first haircut with clippers!! His hair was like a mop on the top of his hair, totally opposite of shannon...His hair is thick and a lot of it. He got it cut at the salon that Jeff goes to! We like to spike the top, just like Daddy!
15) I finally got the Coach purse and wallet that I had been wanting. I got it for mothers day! I love it!!!
16) I finally got baptized into my church on May 3, 2009! That was one of the most exciting days for me!! There are 2 pics of that on here too. Baptism by imerssion in front of the whole congregation!! What a rush! :)


Well I can't think of too many more exciting things...I'm just going to throw some random pictures on here. Hope this helps everyone get caught up with our lives, I'll definately be blogging again a lot sooner than last time! :)
