Where do I go from here?

It's been nearly a year since I last updated my blog. Needless to say life has gotten supper busy with a 3 year old and adjusting to a new baby, new house and new city. But, it's managable at times. Gavin and Olivia are growing up so fast and she is getting quiet the personality. She continues to wrap us around those sweet little fingers a little more everyday. We have just celebrated our first year of living in Kingwood and so far we love it here. It's been a great year and we are looking forward to many more.

Our little Princess has arrived!

Baby Olivia Grace was born November 22, 2010 at 11:28 pm. She weighed 5 lbs. 13 oz. and was 19 inches long. We are so thrilled to welcome "baby sissy" into our family.

November 22nd was a big day for us. We learned that the bank accepted our offer on a new home and our family grew. Good thing cause this house has a whopping 5 bedrooms! If all goes well with inspection & paper work we should close no later than December 21st.

I'm Back

Hello again,
I haven't totally fell off the face of the earth. Just transitioned to a new part of it. It's been such a crazy couple months but things are starting to settle down a bit. Gavin and I spent 2 weeks in Mississippi visiting family from mid to end of September. However, the night before we left for MS Randy came home from work with news that we were moving to Houston. He was given the opportunity to manage the Houston store and very gladly accepted! The down side was that he had to start the next day. Wow what a whirlwind!! It's going to be a great, positive thing for us once we finally get settled in. After returning from MS, we gathered up some of our belongings and all Gavin's furniture and moved into our temporary housing here in Kingwood. Randy was able to rent us a 2bed/2bath furnished apartment that is brand new. It's very nice and spacious and I'm so enjoying the downsize in cleaning. Of course I would though...being that I'm 33 weeks pregnant. I have managed to find a new Doctor, one that I'm not so sure about, but am hoping for the best. We are currently trying to sell both houses in Laredo and looking pretty seriously here for a new home. Randy is just itching to buy something before the baby comes. There are so many options here that I've only been left confused after every weekend of touring these beautiful homes.
Well, hopefully that gives you a glimpse of how we are doing here. Sorry, that there aren't any pictures uploaded. I managed to bring my camera, but not the CD to install it on Randy's laptop. Hopefully next trip.

Time Flies!

Wow!! I can't believe how lazy I have been at updating this blog. I've had so much news in the last months and I haven't even made a point to share it. The beginning of July my sister and her family came down for a visit over the 4th of July weekend. We had lots of fun with them here in Laredo and then spent a couple days in San Antonio for the 4th and for them to enjoy Schlitterbahn. I think this was the highlight of the trip for her kids.

Then the following week we had our first sonogram and found out that we are having a baby girl!! After the shock wore off (for me) we are all very excited about this new baby girl that is due to arrive December 10th.

Next, Gavin's best little friend, Avery and her family moved away from Laredo and we sure hated to see them all go. Here's a couple pics from her last play date with us.

Gavin sure misses Avery. He still ask for her to come over and play regularly and misses our morning walks with Courtney and Avery. I do to!

The first of August my Mom, Aunt and Niece all came down for a visit and you won't believe that I never ever thought to get my camera out of the bag for one picture. Pregnancy has definitely done a number on me! :))

Today, we just returned from a little weekend getaway in Austin, TX. Not to much excitement other than Randy and Gavin going to the zoo. They let me stay in the room and rest all morning, it was so nice. Here's a couple of pictures from there outing.

Lastly, I have bit of news to share. Looks like we are moving to Fort Worth, TX in October. Randy is going to be managing the Fort Worth store. We are told this is not a permanent move but who knows how long it could be. We are planning a trip to FW over Labor Day weekend to visit friends and look for housing options. We are excited for what God has in-store for us there. We have put our house here on the market and haven't had any luck at this point. We just pray that God will let it all work out!!

Birthday Fun!!

Gavin turned 2 on June 5th and we celebrated with a party of bubbles, balloons and balls. He had a fun time and also got to share it with his Mawmaw & Pawpaw from MS. It was a fun party to plan!

Waco Weekend

We spent last weekend in Waco, TX for the Xterra (triathlon) that Randy was signed up to participate in. We had a nice drive up on Friday and stopped at the outlet mall in San Marcos along the way. We also made a stop to Pottery Barn kids in Austin, TX to check out glider rockers for the new baby. Everything was going fine until Randy went out Friday evening to pre-ride the bike course. His bike broke beyond repair!! That put him out of the race. We still managed to enjoy a nice weekend getaway. Waco is a very pretty place and had lots of good "local food" to offer. When we weren't out sight seeing or swimming Randy managed to do a little online bike shopping and find his new "eye candy" as they called it in the store, in Austin. Needless to say we stopped in on the ride home and he brought it home with him. He's on cloud 9!!!
