This has provided hours of entertainment...and it's not going anywhere soon...

Labor Day 2010

We enjoyed Labor Day by visiting the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. We took the kids to The Holy City and Mt. Scott. It was very windy that day, but we enjoyed walking around and the mild temperatures.

Birthday Celebrations

Our family celebrates 3 birthdays within 10 days of each other- Mom, Lillian, and Sarah. This year, we hosted a combined birthday party on Aug. 29, Mom's birthday. We had pulled pork sandwiches and all the fixin's. Each birthday girl opened presents and we had our first large gathering in our "new" house.

Watch out for the 2 boys in the middle...

The newest addition- Wade Douglas- born Aug 19.

As soon as we found out we had an offer on our house in Guthrie, we made plans for a quick trip to Greenwood, MO. It gave all the cousins time to play together.

Fun with the lawn sprinklers

Underwear rules!


My last post was July 21???!?!!!??

In the last 2 months, we moved and started new schools, jobs, etc. It's been a whirlwind of activity but, hopefully, things are starting to settle down. We moved to Elgin, OK the last weekend in July. It was 105 in the shade and high humidity. We had tons of help and the move went smoother than expected. We moved from a new home to one built in 1979. You'll see lots of before and after pictures over the next few months! We have lots of things planned to do to cosmetically improve the house. The house sits on 5 acres, so the kids have had a blast exploring.

Be prepared for several posts over the next few days! I'm finally taking time to get this thing updated!
