big Big BIG Update

WE MOVED!!! Are you surpised??? I know, your thinking whats new because we move alot, right? Well, this is very different. This is the beginning of the end of moving! YEAH!!! With lots and lots of prayers, Tim was able to get a job with a Utility company on Orcas Island. Yes, you heard me right, an Island. Who knew there were Island's in Washington?! A couple of weeks ago, Orcas Public Utility called Tim in for a 2nd Interview and Aubriana and I went with him. I needed to see what this Island was all about.

sorry, telling my story with pictures... should be use to it by now.

We drove our truck on a Ferry, and relaxed for an hour and we were there! Easier then I had imagined.

Anyway, Tim's interview went really well and they gave him the job!!! We were thrilled! It was an answer to our prayers. Thank you to all our family who included us in your prayers. Thank you!

We moved to the Island last weekend, right before Christmas. Thank you to the Huber family for all your help and putting up with us. Also to my sister-in-law Tammy, she is amazing for everything she did for us and I will miss her so much! Also our nephew's Cody & Ashton, thanks for helping Tim with your manly powers! :) I better move on, I'm feeling emotional.

Here is a little tour (using my photos of course) of our place we are renting and our fantastic view from our balconies. My family has been awaiting the pictures.

Now here is another cool thing... we live a mile from the 4th largest state park in Washington. Moran State Park. It's simply a breath taking drive through and at the top is Mt. Constitution, a tower, where you can see all the way around the island, all the other islands, and CANADA! We are not far from Canada. To all the Twilight fans, you can see Vancouver, Canada where Twilight is filmed. Vancouver is also where the winter Olympics will be next year, so come visit me!!! :)

we got to Mt. Constitution almost at sunset, so my pics are dark...

We are expecting another baby!!! I'll try to answer any questions you have... lets see... I'm almost 17 weeks along. Oh, we are due JUNE 13th. Right before Tim and I's 10th Anniversary. I've always wanted to have a June baby :) Yeah for sharing birthday months! I don't care if its a boy or a girl, but we find out in January. We'll keep you posted. I have a feeling that its another girl, but Tim is still unsure. He would really like to have a boy to name after himself... cause he loves his name so much, LOL! If it is a girl, I might be stuck with her name being Timberly, J/K! haha! I think thats it. It came as a bit of a surprise when we found out, but we are very excited!

Just a cute picture of my adorable 2 year old :)

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas! Ours was very memorable this year! :) Also, if you're ever in the Seattle area, or in Washington at all, or you want to just come and visit us, please do! We're only a Ferry ride away.

I can't resist sharing...

During Thanksgiving we went to an awesome place called, Ensign Ranch. It's owned by the LDS church. Beautiful place. The lodge was perfect for the size of our family and so was the kitchen. They had gadgets to use to make food for GIANT people. We cranked out the food too! It was a good thanksgiving dinner. Going to see "New Moon" after was a pumpkin pie treat as well.

Tim's older sister Dana was there with her big family and her new little grand baby, Taygen. She's a pretty little baby but not a happy camper. I took some pictures for them of her and got quite a few winners, but the following two were by far my favorite. :)

all clean!

You can't have a happy baby all the time. It's just not reality people!
so sad!

Share the knowledge!
