What a wild and crazy bunch they are! A rare breed indeed.

Ok, so I know I'm a little biased, but isn't she just adorable?
Recently she has developed a pretty serious stutter. And I don't think it's a coincidence that it began right during the most stressful period of our move. She seems to thrive on structure and routine, and there hasn't been much of that lately. It has been a tough adjustment for her. So it was nice to have a special night to take a break from the craziness of getting unpacked and simply celebrate her. I just hope her stress and stutter go away as we get more settled in our new home.
She's definitely her mommy's girl. I get equally as excited about cake.
Love my little Charity Lynn! Happy Birthday sweet girl. We are so glad you are part of our family!
Here he is trying to make me laugh by posing for the camera. OH man... he cracks me up.
Thankfully, everyone in the office loved it and they didn't write him off as a complete goof-off nut job (at least I hope not). Hopefully they'll give him a chance to prove how brilliant he is. I sure love my wacky hubby who doesn't take himself too seriously and lives life to the fullest!
Moving with 4 young kids is insane. It's especially crazy to make multiple home improvements and run a home business at the same time. Luckily, my parents and my little brother came to the rescue and stayed with us for 2 weeks and worked tirelessly to help us. We also have some wonderful friends here who rushed to help us in our time of need by watching our kids, bringing us meals, and helping us pack the moving truck. Thank you again to everyone who was able to help!
We repainted almost the entire house, had new carpet installed upstairs, put in laminate hardwood flooring in the living room, and did some landscaping in the front and backyards. What an ordeal!
Here is a picture of true love and charity... It's hard to see in this picture, but my mom had a cast on her arm from when she broke her wrist a few weeks ago in Bulgaria. She was still sore all over from her injuries (which included a concussion which made her dizzy at times), but she didn't let it stop her from working every day, ALL day.
And then there's my dad. He is the hardest worker I know. I think the floor turned out beautifully under the tutalge of our friend "Trekky Man".
Whew! I'm so glad that fiasco is over... and that we're finally getting settled in our new home in WI. And as far as I'm concerned we're staying put for good! I'm determined that I won't put our kids through that again!
P.S. Anyone want to buy a house? ;)

I am so grateful to be a member of this church that has brought so much JOY into my life! I know the doctrine is TRUE, and the Book of Mormon is the word of God. We believe that the book is another testament of Jesus Christ. We also believe the Bible to be the word of God. I am grateful beyond expression to be a part of this church that has been such a blessing to me and my family! I invite any and all to read the Book and find out for themselves.
I testify that if you read the Book of Mormon, and sincerely ask in prayer if it is true, that God will manifest the truthfulness of it to you by the power of the Holy Ghost, and it will bless your life as it has mine.
