Aussie Sauce

So yesterday we went to Arby's to get some dinner. We went through the drive through because we were on our way down to drop the kids off at Kira and Tommy's for the night. I placed our order and pulled through to pay when the guy asked me if I wanted horsey or arby's sauce. I was about to say no thanks when Aussie yelled from the back seat "Hey! I want AUSSIE SAUCE please!!!"

It was pretty funny. The guy could hear him and just laughed at him. He is always saying crazy stuff like that.

So since we took the kids down there I got to sleep in (well for the most part) until 10:10 this morning!!! It has been years since I have been able to sleep in that late. The only problem was that we were up til 1am so I really only got the same amount of sleep, maybe a little more, than usual. Either way it was really nice and I am one happy camper today!

A new first for me

I guess there is a first for everything right? Well I had my first car accident yesterday! I have never been in a car accident before and to make it worse it was MY FAULT!!! We were in the interstate in rush hour traffic. It was stop and go and at this particular point in time everyone hit the gas and went faster than they had before and then all of a sudden slammed on the breaks. I didn't have time to stop before I hit the car in front of me, which hit the car in front of him. Since I was the one in the back I got cited for it. BUT the guy behind me was seriously an inch away from hitting me! DANG IT!! lol...
Anyhow, there wasn't much damage done to anyones car. My car had the least amount of damage. You could hardly tell it was even in an accident. The other guys had minor bumper damage. So it really wasn't a big deal at all.
Andrew came down and met me there and told the guys we would just pay to fix their bumpers rather than let it go through our insurance and pay the deductable and then a higher premium on top of that. They were cool with doing it that way.
Luckily it was just me in the car. I had someone watching the kids. I think that is what I was thankful for the most.
I think I did pretty good going 27 years without having an accident. Lets just hope my luck continues and I dont have any for at least another 27 years!

Halloween 2007

I was going through Andrews computer and found these pics from last year. Sorry they're late but hey- better late than never right? Aren't they such cute little boys? I think Aussie's outfit turned out really cute!

Rumor Has It...

In answer to everyone's question. YES we are moving. We are actually really excited about it too! We have been planning on this since November but just have kept it quiet because we didn't know the exact time frame. Having a company takes a lot of things out of your control so we were just waiting til the company said we could move :)
We are moving back to Pennsylvania about an hour and a half north of Pittsburgh. Andrew is from there and we have some property that we can build on. So the plan for now is to go back and rent for the time being and start another company that has less to do with constructin seeing as the economy has taken a sky dive.
We knew that we were supposed to be back there, the Lord has made that very clear. It was just hard to see how it was all going to happen so soon, but we did everything moving forward with going back there and things are REALLY starting to fall into place. We have an offer on our house and we never even listed it!! We wanted to fix/replace a few things to make it perfect to sell but the buyer didn't want us to do that. Which is actually a blessing. We have a few options for a place to live back there for a VERY good price.
I am actually enjoying the "de-junking" process of moving. I hate clutter so things we dont use we are getting rid of. We're having a huge yard sale. Furniture and all will be there! We currently have 3 living/family rooms in our house and the new one will only have one so we have to get rid of at least 2 rooms of furniture, which is fine by me! I am looking forward to having a smaller house to clean and being out in the open away from a ton of people. The city wont be too far from us and we will have 2 large cities within 2 hours either direction. It will be a change but we are all looking forward to it.
Most of all I am excited to live in the mission field again and have all the opportunities to be a part of mission work! Its just a branch right now so it will be like a small ward family. Everyone in the church is really close and they know everyone, nobody gets lost in the cracks. We will also have the chance to feed the missionaries more than once every two years!! Seriously I'm STOKED!!
