Random Photos

As you can see I was able to download the video. I'm sorry that it's so long, I was unable to figure out how to post just a portion of the video but I hope you enjoy it anyway.

Mia's Ski Adventure

A few weeks ago, we took Mia skiing for the first time. There's a ski resort in Las Vegas, yes you read right...a ski resort. It's about 45 minutes from our house. So we all packed up and went for a ride. I didn't ski because we brought Matthew with us but Dave and Mia had a ball. Dave was an awesome instructor and Mia was a good student. It only took her a couple of runs down the bunny slope before she was telling Dave to let her do it by herself. We got some great video of her skiing and if I can figure out how to download it so it will show up on the blog you'll be able to see for yourself. Way to go Mia!!

No Explanation

I bet you've all been wondering where an update has been. Pure laziness on my part, plus having a new baby (well sort of new) that doesn't like to sleep. Since my last post Dave got back from his deployment and we had a baby, our little man Matthew. He decided to grace us with his presence July 16, 2009. He was 10 days late and for those of you who've been prego in the summer in Vegas know it's no picnic. Now he's 6 months old. With the exception of not sleeping he's a very happy baby. Matthew loves his big sister Mia and jumping in his Jolly Jumper. Laughing at the things she does is his favorite past time. He sits up all by himself and is crawling which means he's getting into everything he's not supposed to, so it makes for a fun time for mom. As for big sister Mia, she's continues to make us laugh with the things she says and does. She'll always be the big sister in proper terms but Matthew is very close to passing her in size. She's 2 1/2 and still only weighs 23lbs, he's 6 months and 17lbs. I think it's because she never stops moving. She loves to read, play dress-up, ride her bike and go to the park. I love listening to and watching her little imagination go. It always amazes me how kids can play for hours with the simplest things.

As for Dave and me well, not much has changed. He's still working crazy long hours and I'm a stay at home mom to our kids. It's the greatest job in the world but also the hardest. I'm looking forward to the day that Matthew will sleep more then 2 hours in a row so I can catch up on my sleep but right now I think he thinks sleep is overrated. LOL!!

We did get some exciting news, we'll be moving to the DC area this summer. Dave will be attending school there. I'm particularly looking forward to our next assignment because it's only 2 hours from my mom and dad's. Oh how nice it will be not to have to get on an airplane to go and see them. Mia and Matthew will really enjoy being able to spend more time with their cousins.

Well, that's a quick update for now. I will be posting some updated photos soon. Bye for now. I promise it won't be very long until I post again.
