My stool covers :)

We had to take a trip to Texarkana during Ryan's spring break to get our boat. It was nice and warm :)

We stopped in Moab and took a few pics on our way home. Scarlet was doing a great job modelling for me!

The boys hiked to the "hole" in the rock. It was a nice break from our 30 hr drive!

It's nice to have our boat back, can't wait to dip it into Powell :)

Just after we moved in, Jen Langness and the kids were able to come visit for their spring break. It went quick, but all the kids were very happy to see some CO family. We just had to snag the Jackson girls from school for lunch and "frogurt" before they had to leave town. It was a lot of fun :)

Jen's really enjoying her camera, she took some great pics of all of us during her visit....I keep telling her to start a blog!!! (hint, hint)

Finally getting around to blogging :)

Well, we're just about settled in our new home here in Draper, UT. We're nestled half way down the Wasatch mountain range atop a hill we call "South Mountain". Our cute cul-de-sac is filled with plenty of playmates for our kids, we've really enjoyed getting to know our new neighbors.

This is our living room, I love that it's right off the kitchen. The house was used as a model home for the builder's, so the rooms were already painted nicely, so we just went with it. The colors wouldn't have been my first choice, but they've really grown on me :)
This is the view from our entree way. I like that it's so spacious.
I absolutely LOVE this island :)

Here the front side of our house, we're on the corner of the street with 3 other homes on the east side of us. It was a cold dreary day, so you can't see the giant mountain just past the houses. The other side of the cul-de-sac is just a big field right now, but there's supposed to be a church built on the property sometime in the near future. I really hope they'll give the kids a small patch of grass to play on :)

Here we go again....

Well, our time in this 3br apartment is drawing to a close.  We have spent the last 3 months here while getting to know our new city.  It's been a chaotic time, a new school for Ryan, new Church, new Awana group, new job for John, new Bible study group for me...sellling a house 500+  miles away, finding one here and waiting to know if our offer was accepted.  A lot has been going on here, and yet...Corey was still able to be potty trained!  He's officially a "big boy" accidents are few and far between.  Today he left a playground to go #2 in a public restroom, so I think he's in the final phase!  Yes, ice cream was definitely earned!  Next weekend we'll be moving in with either family or new friends as we complete our permanent housing details, which hopefully won't take long.  Ryan just started soccer here and just loves it!  All is going great.  This past year I've seen the Lord work so miraculously for us and I'm so thankful for His provisions.  I can't wait to get settled and be back to keeping the pics flying up here.  'Til then...pray for a quick transition and a great home for our family to come available!  Thanks~
