On The Road Again......

Yehaaaw or however you spell that. Well you guessed it we are off to sunny Florida! I am so excited it will be like a big reunion out there, also it's our anniversary and what a good place to spend it (this is where we got married). We are setting out with the RV on Thursday, yup this Thursday. Things have just kinda fallen into place and we have all of the business stuff taken care of. The kiddies are so happy to see Mickey Mouse, we are actually staying at disney's RV park for the first few nights. They have a campfire with Chip and Dale every night so it should be fun. We will take lots and lots of pictures so I will make up for my lack of writing then. Well we look forward to seeing those of you who will be there and will chat with ya'll later. Take care now y'hear. Ha ha. Anyway here are a few old pics but they are too cute!

Here's one for you Kenny!

Okay so Jacob got this cute little outfit from his cousins Jack and Sammy and despite the fact that it has the dallas cowboys on it I let Jacob wear it. Ha ha just joking I actually don't really follow football anyway, but thought you would appreciate this Kenny. Things here have been crazy as usual but of course it's great. I am getting used to the sound of banging drums amongst the other noises from my household. I think Jim is great but he seems to think he needs a lot of work. My kiddies seem so grown up sometimes. We are thinking of going to Florida for a much needed vacation (haha) but are coming across a few obstacles like the length of time it takes to get there. Anyway Jim told Kristjan to pray about it and see what he thought. I picked him up after school today and he said "mommy I prayed at school today and God thinks it would be a good idea if we go to florida". It's moments like that where you think man you are growing up. Things are going well here, just got our passport pictures done today and man alive I look pretty scary! The kids loved it, they ran the show in that place. Not much else is new here, but I am going to make a pact to write at least once a week in my blog. The gym is going great we have been blessed. Well we love you all and thanks for your comments, this is sooooo fun.

Our New Addition

Okay okay the title is a bit misleading but I know how to get your attention. Ha Ha! I am actually talking about our new drumset. For those of you who don't know, Jim used to play the drums. When we first met he played quite a bit then just stopped playing as he didn't have any drums. Well I have been encouraging him for some time now to get drums and he finally did. One night he said I think I am going to get some drums so we checked on ebay and found a "sick" set of drums. We now have them set up and they are great! I don't quite know how I am going to keep the kiddies off of them but hey we will figure it out. Kristjan thinks that we should have a family band so they have been playing their tamborine and spoons, Jessica also loves to play the recorder. Mom and dad I am so sorry if I played that little thing as loud as she does!

Wow can you believe I am doing this?

Well I have finally decided to try this whole blogging thing out. I figured this way I can keep everyone updated at once, ha ha. Well life is always crazy and exciting and a crazy thing happened, I won a car. Well for 8 months that is, but hey I still have a car that I don't have to pay for! As of right now I am the one who drives it and the picture tells you why. I can't picture Jim driving a car with lips on it although we will be able to remove the stickers right away. The kiddies love it, they think it's the coolest car. It's neat how God provides though! Our neighbor is leaving for a week to go to Mexico, she is the one that walks Kristjan to school in the mornings for me. Anyway it has been like -60 (which really means -35-40 in Jill language) and I can't imagine bundling up all the kids to walk him to school, but now I have a car!!!!

Everything is going well , the gym is doing amazing we have been so blessed. I am still doing the cleaning and working weekends, but it actually isn't too bad. Jim just celebrated his 31st birthday and he is looking as studly as ever. The kiddies are non-stop action all the time so I never get bored. Well speaking of children mine are getting a bit ansy so I should probably run. I hope all is well with everyone and hey thanks for checking out our blog.
