One More Thing

Our holiday was good. I got to see my sister and nephew as well as Skype with my brother who is in Sweden. Vince's mom bought the kids a trampoline. They tried it out today and after multiple moments of refereeing they enjoyed it. Ian ran around in circles with his little legs. Pretty cute.

We took a day trip to Seaside yesterday. It was 45 degrees and no rain or wind. Pleasant for NW standards. We had fun going to the Seaside Aquarium to feed the seals, ride the carousel and eat at the Pig n Pancake for dinner. We found a candy shop that could of been Willie Wonkas. It seriously had at prob had 40 types of taffy.

Caylee played on the beach, Ian ate about 8 fistfuls of sand because he thought it was funny...gonna hurt later I am sure, and Logan stayed away from the waves. I mean about 200 feet away. That boy is so cautious of the ocean he does not go near it even while holding my hand. Smart.

I start my new job tomorrow. Even though I worked there before at night, and know the people I am still nervous and considered just going back to my old job because it is familiar to me. I just have to remind myself that it will be fine and I am there to work in order to provide for the family so the lights stay on and the kids can have yogurt and bananas whenever they want lol.

Happy New Year!!!

2013 Has Been a Good Year!

Time flies when you are having fun :) I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and Christmas. It has been a while since I have written. 3 out of 5 people in our house are busy having going to school. It has been a process for us this last year to get all of our schedules worked out. The kids have asked to be signed up for many different sports this next year, but money and time force us to narrow the list down a bit. I have also gotten a new job after being back at a community bank for a year, I start tomorrow as a staff accountant for a local CPA firm. It looks like I will be going back to school myself in order to work towards a Masters. The pictures below tell our story the last couple of months better than I could.
