Happy Brithday Adopted Mother!

Cheryl is my mother-in-law...for those of you who do not know her that is very unfortunate! Today is her birthday! I hope that you have a wonderful day because you deserve it! Josh and I sure miss you. I think it has only been less than 2 weeks since i left , and Christmas can't come soon enough... These are the reasons we LOVE Mom/Cheryl!
  • Loves to Laugh (usually till she cannot breathe)
  • Makes the yummiest treats
  • Always bugs us to have her grand babies
  • Would do ANYTHING for ANYONE
  • She is a expert "list maker" : )
  • She is a great example
  • She can let loose and have fun
  • She always makes the best of every situation
  • Treats everyone like her own child..ask Chris if you don't believe us
xoxo Have a HAPPY HAPPY day! xoxo

BrOgAn' S 7!!!

Hard to believe Brog turned seven years old today! Wish I could celebrate with the fam, but I was lucky enough to see him while I was in Utah a couple of times! Hope you ad a great day buddy! We love you!

Back in Kansas!

Well Josh and I made it through our time apart! Some days were harder than others, but it sure made me appreciate our marriage, spending time together and all that Josh does for me! I am so happy to be back in Kansas...We had a few days before I started up my fall semester. It has been nice not having a set schedule since work starts for him in September (YAY!) and I just began my fall semester today...Along with Josh I missed my family that is here- especially the boys. I got home just in time for Tyler's 3rd Birthday. I do of course miss my favorite things about Logan...Family...Friends...My Job...Mountains...Sports Academy (lame, but true!) But being away from all that is SO worth being back with Joshua!

Tyler being a GOOF!

The last couple of months have been a little crazy...the move to first semester of grad school...Josh's job hunt...etc...Once my semester ended for Summer, Josh was still playing the "waiting game" on jobs. He had applied for many and interviewed for others (once or twice) all while he was still applying to many others. Luckily, my old boss in Logan was generous enough to let me come work for 5 weeks. GREAT! We knew that was a huge blessing for us- the only downside, Josh and I would be separated the whole time since he was in the middle of his job search. I think the longest we have been apart since we have been married is 4 we have faith through our trials, great things come! We are down to less than 2 weeks and it has not been the easiest experience, but we are grateful for opportunity my boss gave to me. Josh has been so patient and diligent in his job search and it has paid off! He was offered a position with Farmers Insurance today! YAY! We were so happy for Josh to get the offer, it really took a huge amount of stress off of us! Thanks to our family and friends who have been supportive and encouraging, you are all blessings in our life as well!

I appreciate Josh for being positive throughout the last few weeks. I know it has probably gone by even slower for him since I have been SO busy working. Plus the fact that he is in new place where he does not know a ton of people. Thank you for sacrificing your sanity Josh : )

Since I have been in Logan I work nearly everyday, but I have played a little too...

We took the girls (for work) to Jackson Hole and went river rafting, to Bar J's, and hiking.

Jenny Lake Hike with my sidekick Kristy!

I went to Boise to visit my family

Yes, this is what Clay wears to church...on a regular basis!

I have got to spend a good amount of time with the Browns since I am staying there. It has been wonderful to be with them- thank you so much Jeff and Cheryl for all you do! Cheryl, Celsey and I also went to Lagoon one day and had a BLAST...(Go Jet Star)
I found out this is the actual house Josh's Grandpa Brown grew up in. It is in the Pioneer Village at Lagoon and was brought from Rockport, where he grew up...crazy!

This lady had the SWEETEST hair I think I will ever see...ever!

Miss you TONS Josh and I can't wait to see you...10 days...
