Our new place

A wonderful neighbor brought us some yummy cupcakes!

Kellen decided to eat one himself. This kid climbs EVERYTHING!!!
Front of our place. It is a townhouse, but we are used to that!
The kitchen.The living room/toy area/dining room... kind of like our place back in Montana. I love this color we choose for down here.The boys' room... sometime we were directed that we must put wolves and airplanes on the wall, so we are thinking of some possibilities. Ayla's room, I directed her towards the lavender instead of pink, and she happily agreed (thank goodness!!) Soon (maybe) there will be paintings on the wall... but maybe not!
My sewing room!!! Love this space... now just to clean it!

In Texas

So we are jn Texas. Have been for a week almost! So far, so good. When we got here, they had us look at a house on base... I thought it was awful, but Tyler said "with some tlc we could fix it up" (what an optimist!) but we passed on the house, knowing that we might be houseless for a bit longer (there is no estimated wait list for base housing) and decided we could stay at the local KOA if need be. Turns out the housing office called us 2 days later with another house! Before we even went inside, we knew it was one we would say yes to! It is newer housing, connected in the middle (townhouse) with a decent sized backyard! We probably won't move in for another week, but that is okay! We are staying in a temporary 3 bdrm apartment that is working just fine! The cats have no idea what is going on, but the kids think it is all just one big adventure with bunkbeds at the end for them!
I can't load pictures right now, but as soon as I can, I will. We have done a lot of fun things on this trip (Arches and Grand Canyon, Granna and Papa's) and I can't wait to share!
Kellen is getting close to walking, the baby is kicking a lot, Colton and Ayla are enjoying the sun and we are happily learning this place we will eventually call home. We miss Montana and our wonderful friends there, but in order to get by, we must look forward to what is to come... And really, there is SO much to come!

Oh, did I forget to mention WE'RE HAVING A BOY!!!! Three boys and a girl sounds perfect to me... Maybe means more ER visits and whatnot, but I have a feeling there will be a lot of baseball and golf and oh so much fun!!!
