We have been so busy the last couple of months!
Jeff is still here as many of you know. He is going through some issues with his back and is currently in physical therapy, and going to the pain clinic. If they decide not to do steroid shots, the next step is the neurosurgeon to determine if surgery is the way to go. Lets all pray that they get him fixed! He had some issues with the acting rear-detachment command treating badly, as if he has any control over what the doctor tells him he can and cannot do. But so far it seems like whatever their problem was is dissapated for now. Which is great, because its no fun to work with a bunch of jerks!
The big boys are busy with soccer, and school! The little ones are just being busy being the little ones, lol!
Stephanie comes up again at the end of this month. And again next month! I am stoked for her visits! We made the trip up to Mount St. Helens with Danielle and Kyle in tow. It was stunning to see!
My sister is planning a trip up for Christmas which is the very best Christmas gift I could ever ask for! I cannot wait to hold that baby Alice and snuggle her! I probably wont put her down! Will and Gabe are really stoked to come see me, I am going to try and book the big kids flights up here for Christmas too, just have to talk to Clint.
Danielle had her baby, too! HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAM! ;)
I am working at the PX next week with my bows. I am really nervous about it. Its my first venture in to an actual customer base outside of the internet and word of mouth! Lets hope they dont laugh me out of the PX! ha!
Will try to update more, just cannot promise it. We are so incredibly busy lately, and with the Holidays coming up it's only going to get worse!
Love you all! Visit anytime you want! We love it here!

Well, I never promised to be incredibly good at updating the good 'ole family blog. We have had the busiest summer EVER! Thought I would pop in and update everyone on a few things and add some great pics of our gorgeous family. ;)
So Luke and Tylor came home, and holy cow did they have a crazy summer! We have been to the beach so many times on the coast its insane. And literally all over the Olympic peninsula. We had so many fun times! And have had so much family visit. Even our best friend in the world Kyle Cox came and stayed a few days with us. And my beautiful fairy God mother Stephanie come too! :)
My mom came down as well. It was fun!
There isnt too much to update other than we spend our weekends scouring the countryside for things to do. We spend a lot of time on the coast line. All the way down in to Oregon. Lots of play times outside and lots of birthdays!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY! Jeff is getting old! *snickers* Still I am the old woman in the fam. *sighs*
Anyways just a quick post to let everyone know the blog isnt completely dead, almost, but not quite yet...
Here are some great pics from the summer! I am stoked for Fall to get here, I hope its as gorgeous as back home!
Happy Weekend everyone!

*sighs* Well, I guess you could say we are finally settled here at Fort Lewis. So much has happened the last 2 months. And with being on the move I have not had much time to update all of you. So this might be a long post. :)
We finally reported here in March. Housing was not available so we ended up in a temp apartment off post in Puyallup until it was ready. About 6 weeks, long enough to un-pack only to pack it up and move on post again. We are lucky though, the boys will be here at the end of this month, and having joint custody helped us get into a 4 bedroom. So space will not be an issue!
The kiddos fly in, along with Marie, Caydee, Nelson, Mendy and my aunt Cathy! So we will have a ton of visitors for a few days. I am stoked to spend some time with them.
Having a hard time though, my little sister is due with my niece in June, and its going to be rough not being there with her. I cannot wait to meet the baby! She is going to be a little doll face.
We have been a few places here, Seattle, Forks, and some beaches. Its gorgeous but rains so much. Seriously, more rain than you would believe. I am hoping the summer is better than the spring. Some days are colder than others, and we have had a couple really warm nice days.
I havent really met too many on post. The neighbors are okay, just not my Michelf or Jes. Or anything like my Korea girls. And that is a hard adjustment. I guess we all learned to lean on each other being 7k + miles from our homes. I miss some of them so terribly. Especially Bobby Kitchen and Monica. I hope they are doing well. And we love you if you all check in here!
Words cannot express the feelings with the boys on their way! I cannot wait until they get here!
No definitive date on deployment yet. I will obviouslly not post it. But it will be late summer. Family will know I believe, but I will know more specifics here soon I imagine. I am dreading it. And its all I can do not to pack up and go home when he leaves.
I got to meet Peter Facinelli, and that was really neat!
The babies are doing well. We are fighting a bought with the flu. Dear Lord, I hope it passes quickly. Its frustrating with the little ones being sick.
We also got a new puppy love! Well I suppose he isnt a puppy, he is 4. A little brown weenie dog. His name is Elvis. He is amazing the kids, although tends to favor Kyle much more than Miss Erica.
We got to spend so much time back home. But it is never enough. I got to hang out with my mom and sister in Eureak Springs, that was fun! And we spent a lot time at the Browns. And with Aunt Cathy. It was wonderful!
We love you all and miss you all. Keep us in your prayers! XOXO
