What a fun Thanksgiving! We decided to drive out to California and visit Becky and Dave for the holidays. Becky cooked, and it was fabulous. After filling our selfs up Matt and Troy watched football(took a nap) while Becky and I took the girls swimming. The girls all started out in the pool but ended up having way to much fun playing in the showers.Aunt Becky Troy and Justice.
The Next day we went to LegoLand. It was a lot of fun, much different from other amusement parks. The girls are checking out the whitehouse made out of Lego's. They had these all over the park. Its really amazing.
Because we did not have time to do the Sealife we went back the next day.

I just love the ocean. Justice, Georgia and Madison
The drive home was crazy. The weather was horrible. When we reached AZ and into Utah we hit a huge snow storm. There were a ton of accidents and people all over the road. We made it home safely, just took much longer.
We had so much fun! Thanks for having us Becky!

One step Closer

Its official. We have a mortgage again, LOL. We just got the letter from the bank saying that they have accepted our offer. We have been pretty nervous about the whole thing because it was a short sale and everyone told us from the get go that they can take up to 6 months. We have alot of work to do, but can't wait to move out of this rental!
We cant wait to start the New Year off in Rancho Sahuarita!Bye Bye Winter

What we have been up too?

For the last 3 weeks Grandma Newson has been here visiting. She met little bud for the first time. The girls and Grandma did a lot of coloring, beads, and singing Christmas music. The girls showed her all their moves, took lots of walks, and just spent time together.
We are lucky to have such a great family!! We love you Grandma!!!

little buddy is 2 months old

Matt and I took Troy in for his 2 month check up. Its official, we make shrimps. Troy weighed in at 11.1 pounds and was 22.75 inches long. He is in the 25th percentile. This basically where all the girls sit as far as height and weight go. The Dr says that Troy is doing great. Of course he did not like the shots, but I can't say that I blame him.

Monte Cristo With The Family

We all took advantage of what looks like the last nice weekend before the cold winter sets in. We headed up to the mountain, Monte Cristo. Grandma, Aunt Nat, Drew and Brandon all came.Nat,Drew and Brandon did some shooting with the guns.
Drew hit the can on the first shot. WOW! Brandon was pretty good too. He hit every can that was setup. Nat took a little longer to get a can….
Matt took his mom out for a ride in the rhino. They hit some snow and did a couple of hill climbs. The word on the street is that grandma wants a rhino............ Then we all just took the four wheelers out and messed around. Justice is getting to be quite the dare devil riding down this huge hill. Pretty much scared the crap out of me. Matt of course... was a proud father.
It was a little windy up there, but it was great to get out one last time.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! This is such a fun time for the girls. They just love to get dressed up in costumes and of course get candy. We started out on Friday by heading up to my work, trick or treating and decorating cookies. Then we headed up on Base for "The Haunting On The Hill". The girls had fun playing games and winning candy.
Georgia was Bat Girl
Brooklyn dressed up as Tinker Bell
Troy was a little Tiger
Justice was a Devil
Madison was a LadyBug
We started out at about 6pm and trick or treated for about 1 1/2 hours. By that time everyone was pretty tired out and ready to head home except for Justice, she wanted more candy. Here is Grandma, Troy and the girls before heading out.

Then we all headed up to see Matt at work, to drop off some candy.
