I know...It's about time!

Wow! I has been forever! So much has happened, I don't know where to start! Things are still going great with us it has just been really busy! Audrey is so full of life and keeps us hoping every minute. Our summer has been filled with fun, shopping, hunting, camping, crafting, lots of softball, trips to lagoon, visits to the zoo, playing at the park, swimming, and making a whole lot of memories! I will get photos up soon!

Catching up...

I haven't had much spare time for blogging lately so we have some catching up to do...

Of course Drew has been Mountain Lion hunting every Saturday because it's winter. Don't worry, he hasn't killed one! They just go let the dogs chase them and tree them so they can take pictures. It's apparently and adrenalain rush to play with danger! Whatever makes him happy!

Audrey loves pizza! And everything you you give her except milk! She is almost 1 so we have been introducing the wonderful world of food to her, she loves everything and despite her looks doesn't ever want to stop eating unless you give her some milk! She spits it out and gives the funniest look I have ever seen, like she can't believe I would even try to give her something so gross! If any of you have any ideas about how to get her to drink it I would love to try them out, we seriously feel like we have tried everything!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! We celebrated by going to Layton City's Family Recreation Night at the Library. We meet the Lepercans, played games, and listened to story time. Of course my dad was a lepercan, as you can see! Audrey had a lot of fun!

As most of you know I am a craft-a-holic! This is my newest creation! A onesie all dolled up with a flower that buttons on so it is interchangeable! Audrey is my little model and this was her St. Patrick's Day outfit. I have gotten involved with craft fairs so I have to come up with new cute ideas all the time. I am selling these, each shirt comes with two flowers for a different look each time they are worn! I also have hair bows that match sold seperately. I am going to be making a blog for all my crafts soon so stay tuned if you are interested!

She is such a good sport! She hangs out with my manning the booth at the craft fairs and models all the cute stuff we are selling! She waves and says hi to all the people...and people just flock to see her! Here she is all sprawled out napping after a long day at the craft fair...looking just like the little princess she is!

So this picture is giving me fits, sorry it is turned wrong! Aunt Barbara spoiled her and made her this adorable princess dress! She looked darling and was acting so cute in it!

Yeah...That's Right...I Got A New Job! I can't believe that it happened so fast! The first job that I applied for I got! Everything really does happen for a reason! I will be working at America First in the Collections Deptartement and I start on Monday. Starting a new job is always stressful but I think there are some great opportunities for me at AFCU so I am excited. I will have to start full time until a 30 hour a week position opens but that shouldn't be more then a few months, it will be hard to be away from my princess more but I think the sacrifice for right now will pay off in the long run and this move will be good for our family.
Thanks so much for all your prayers and support! It was really nice to know that I had so many people pushing for me and giving me leads on jobs. I have to best family and friends in the world!

Idol Chatter!

It's that time of the week again! How about American Idol this week! I was pretty happy with who made it through but I was really hoping that Jun'not would be on the wild card show! I can't believe that they are bringing Tatiana back for the wild card show...are they insane, nobody will vote for her! And if they do then they are insane too! I'm also not a huge fan of the weird tone voices like Megan's but we will just have to see what happens! Tell me what you think!

So...although we never thought it would affect us in this way, the economy crunch has hit home for us this week. I was laid off from my job on Monday. It has been a rollercoaster of emotion as I have dealt with the questions why and what now. They had to make cut backs and so my position was eliminated...they couldn't give me any reasons why and so I have had to come to my own conclusions, but no matter the reason it is done and we have to move forward. Hopefully this will be a blessing in disguise and through the hardship we will learn a lot and become stronger while finding something better for our family. I have started looking for something else and have got some great leads but if any of you hear of anything please let me know. I am looking into translating for the courts and things are looking great for that, I also have some great leads with FedEx, America First, and a few others but I want to look at all my options. I am sure that my experience and being biligual will help me find something great. So I guess the reason I am writing this post is to see if any of you know of any leads that I can follow up on, as we all know it's who you know that often gets you in the door and then I can definately take it from there. Thanks for all your help...I will keep you updated!
