A BIG Announcement!

So yesterday I hinted that I had another announcement....Well get ready, big changes are happening for our family, not only are we having another addition which I announced a few weeks ago, but.......


We're Moving

That's right. We will no longer be living our life on an island in the middle of the Bering Sea!

In less than a month, our family is headed to the mountains outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Dh accepted a job as the Executive Director of a medical center there.
It's such an exciting opportunity for him and for our family. 
I am busy packing and coordinating a move while being almost 20 weeks pregnant. So if you don't hear from me much in the next few weeks you know why.

I have never seen where we are moving, but DH spent a week there and says I will love it. 
For now I will leave you with a pic of the area from google images :)

missing teeth, girl scout cookies, and a growing belly

Wow, I had good intentions, but this week with DH gone, then time to blog just got away from me. There's so much going on around here. Some news that I can't wait to share with yall, but I think I have to wait another day or so.

Anyway, Dh comes home tomorow (weather permitting) and I can not wait. I have missed him so much this week. 

A and I have been busy. She lost a tooth Saturday and another one is close to coming out as well.
She was just so excited. Her first tooth, out 2 weeks before her 7th birthday!

 We've been busy sorting and delivering almost 400 boxes of girl scout cookies that A sold...
...
and my belly has been busy growing!
Here I am at 16 and 1/2 weeks. Taken about a weeks ago.
Can't believe how fast it is going.
Well, I am headed to bed, praying DH is able to fly in tomorrow. 
And hopefully you stay tuned to hear my news soon!

Ice cream social, v-day, and father daughter dance....lots of fun

Wow it's been a while since I have blogged....after saying I was going to be better at it too. Oh well. We've been busy here and I will try to catch up in the next few days, but for tonight I thought I'd share a bit of the activities we have been doing around town. 
This month was the annual Ice Cream Social. It's a fundraiser for our local preschool. There's always a huge turn out. I mean who doesn't love as much ice cream and toppings as they can eat right?

Events like these bring the whole town out.
A chowed down on several bowl fulls while dad watched in amazement. LOL
Of course this past Friday was V-day and A and I decided to make a cake. She had read in her highlights magazine how to make a heart shape cake using a square pan and one round pan. It worked great, and she had a lot of fun decorating it just the way she wanted.


That evening Dad took A and I out for our special valentine date. We went to the Grand and had a wonderful time. A was one of the only kids there and she was so well behaved. She ordered the cheese plate, a entree, and even was able to pick out a dessert.

Sunday the local PCR threw their second annual Father/Daughter Dance.
A has been looking forward to it all year. She had so much fun last year.
I snapped a pic of them before they left the house, and then I headed out to dinner with a friend who's husband and daughter were at the dance as well.
A loved dancing with her dad, but she didn't like the pictures being taken. LOL
They did the Limbo (even the dads), and the chicken dance. That was her favorite
A great time for the two of them.
The perfect special night.
Well I'm off for now. About to get A ready for bed, and the spend some time with DH before he leaves the island tomorrow for a week.
Night all.
