11 months.

I can't believe it is time to write about another month already. As I look at my blog I haven't posted many pictures this month.
It has already been a year since Jason and I took a trip out here to look for a place to live....I just can't believe how fast time has gone by. It is hard to believe but last year it was alot colder. We have had a busy and an emotional month. We made it to Michigan this past month. My grandfather past away. My grandpa Don was such an amazing man. I have so many wonderful memories with my Grandpa Don. He had a huge impact on my life. He always put his family first, he was a strong man of faith, he always helped where there was a need. He got alztimers disease about 12 years ago and never once did he complain about life and the pain he was in, instead he always thanked anyone that was helping him and would read his Bible. His words in everything were" It's all Good". This was true man of his unbelievable faith. I have been truly blessed to have had my grandfather as a role model, he taught me so much. His life has been an inspiration to me. It was so hard to say goodbye for now but we also rejoice knowing that he went home to his father and I can't wait to give him a big hug with his new body someday.
While we were in Michigan we were able to see most of our family and friends. I can't believe it but for the second time visiting in Michigan I don't have any pictures....sorry. It was very nice to see all of you again. On our way home we took the kids to a great wolf lodge. We all had so much fun. It was a nice break for the kids for our long drive. The kids have been doing alot better in the car.
We celebrated valentine's this year as a family. We made some Valentine heart crafts and heart cupcakes, the kids enjoy it.
Jason still keeps very busy at work. They have been doing a lot of house which he loves. It is starting to get back into the busy season again.
Isabelle has been doing very good on the potty. She has been getting up very early, so we got her an alarm clock. That has helped a lot. She has been very sick this past month with two ear infections, a very bad cold and the flu. She has been coming up with so much funny stuff. One day we were driving home and a flock of birds went by and Isabelle says " bye bye birds go home to mommy now". I just love their imagination!!! The last couple of months she has been into Dora. Everything has to be Dora. She always says" mom I love Dora. She has made alot of new friends at daycare. She is going to have one of her new friends come over to play in a couple of weeks. I can't believe this time is coming already.
Gideon id definitely going threw his terrible 2's. He has been having alot of tantrums and everything is no. He is such a sweet and sensitive little guy, I have a hard time punishing him. He has been quite sick this month too with two double ear infections, a bad cold and the flu.He has gotten really attached to his elephants. He wants his elephants by him at all times. He also wants every stuffed animal in his bed with him at all times. On our trip whenever a big truck went by he would say " mom big you see um,do you see um. It is so cute!!
It has been a little harder month saying goodbye to our Grandfather and having some winter blues but this month God has really taught me about how he works everything out in his plan, he always supply all of our needs. Sometimes I need to trust a little bit more.
We love and miss you all.
