Just for the heck of it

This is what Kristen looked like when she came up to me yesterday. I had the camera handy and just had to take a picture. This is the outcome when I asked her to say cheese...We're workin' on it...

I thought it was about time I updated this blog!! We have had a VERY busy month. Three different sets of company made for very exciting times.

First we had Cory's Mom Debbie and her husband Rick visit for about a week iAdd Imagen the first part of March. They did a spur of the moment trip and drove down. We were so glad they did! Lauren got an early birthday present from Grandpa, a new bike! We did a lot of driving around and just spent time with each other and the girls ate up every moment of spoiling they could! Pay attention to the top 2 pictures...hilarious!

Next we had my Mom and Dad (LuJean & George) come down for their yearly spring visit and they stayed for about 10 days! It was so nice to have them here too. Unfortunately we all got sick...My dad with Pneumonia, my mom with Bronchitis, and me with Pneumonia AND a sinus infection! We still managed to enjoy each others company in spite of all of the sickies!! For some reason they took all of the pictures of that week on their camera so I'll post some when I get some *hint hint Dad!*

Then 3 days later my awesome sister Paula graced us with her presence for a whole week! We had a blast just doing whatever we felt like.

We also were able to catch up with some old friends/neighbors the Wormell's who we lived next to us when we were teenagers. They happen to live about 45 min. away from us down here in AZ now. It was great reliving old memories...ohhh the bad hair Paula and I were sporting in those days. Karen you have total blackmail on us on those old home videos!

Last I wanted to post some pictures of the girls in some new dresses Nana sent down for Easter. I LOVE the colors and the style. Thanks Deb!

All in all it was a fantastic month. The weather was absolutely perfect the whole time and everyone got a taste of just how beautiful it is this time of the year here. We are so thankful for all of the wonderful family we have and we love you all!!!

I was tagged...

So I have to go to my 6th folder and get my 6th picture....
Since we have a new computer I don't even have 6 folders yet, so I'll do the 6th picture!
My #1 girl and I!!

So here we are in our last few months in Arizona. We will be leaving in the end of May and moving to Denver for the summer. The problem is (besides the fact we have to uproot our family and move around for the next year) we have never even spent any time in Denver so we have no idea what parts of town are good for us to live. Cory will be at the VA in downtown Denver, so we'd like somewhere that's not too much of a commute but also be a decent place for us to live. So I'm calling all of you out there who would have ANY insight as to where we should be looking. We're going to be in a "short-term" apartment which makes things even more complicated. I've done searches online and found some places that look decent...but you could also do a search for places in Phoenix and they look "decent" but then you drive by and realize it's in the ghetto! I'm just nervous and need some advice.
