Just In Case You Thought I Have Been Sitting Around Eating Bon Bons......

Things have recently gone into hyper speed around here, not that we were bored before, but just when I was getting good at keeping the portions on my plate at a healthy level I decided to add a little more here and a little more there and now it appears to be OVERFLOWING! Sheesh, will I EVER learn?? So a run down of everyone and their busyness!

Jimmy- Working hard and earning a nice raise and insurance (coming soon thankfully), devoting many evenings to his website to get it poppin, working out with his friend Rob and getting in some deserved time away with a Guys night (he's making friends, we are so proud!! ), and still rockin the nursery where all the little girls seem to heart him!




Marylin- Still doing laundry, cooking, cleaning, started training for her first race (a 10K), enjoying her calling in YoungWomens (getting ready for New Beginnings), working on 7 different sewing projects, participating in the ward cooking and book clubs, pausing for girls nights, bathing and sleeping, and only one small nervous break down!



Met the sidewalk up close and personal after slipping on ice while running, good times!



Alexis- Loving 5th Grade, part of the reading club, getting straight A's ( a blessing), enjoying her friends, getting an allowance (when she does her chores), great big sister, messy room keeper, missing her Grandma & Grandpa Holler, and getting way too tall!




Grace- Working very hard in Kindergarten and making tons of progress, attended several friends birthday parties, roller skated for the first time, tags along with Lexi and her friends on occasion, loves to torture/play with her brother, also getting allowance with completion of chores, and making all of us laugh on a daily basis!







James (Buddy or Dude)- Decided that 1 was way too boring brought 2 in with a bang, mural drawing, new words everyday, still sleeping in his crib (amen), loves watching Matilda and Mickey Mouse Club House, finally growing into his size 24 months clothing, eats cheese like a mouse, thinks he is the funniest thing since his Dad!






Whisper (the cat)- 8 years old and lazy as ever, loves her family so very much (especially her human mom), enjoying the new family members Coco, Chanel & Princess!!



Family Update: As a whole we are all doing well, we still LOVE Colorado and the area we live in! We welcomed 3 baby Dumbo Rats into our home a few weeks ago, they have made for great pets, and the kids LOVE them! Jimmy will be signed to a new contract (in May) at the base so we will be here for at least one more year (hoping for more), we are healthy, happy and feeling at HOME! Oh we also LOVE visitors so come one, come all!!

Josh KEEPS talking about holding the rat. We need to get him and Grace together soon.

John and Marissa said...

Ha! And you thought you were going to be able to fly below the radar... You are just too talented. Hope everything goes as planned with your YW activity!

What a perfect update!! Love the quick break downs. Although, pet rats??? You, are one good mama!

Also, you look amazing!! I am so excited that you are training for a 10K! I will send you a running link on facebook to keep track.

What the heck was Rob doing in that picture? Sometimes I wonder about that guy!

Love the post! I sure miss you guys. I'm glad you are busy and happy! Alan has tried to convince me that rats are good pets, but I still feel otherwise...
