Fall is here...

Well, we don't have much to update on hence the reason for no blogs since our original one. We are loving our home and slowly getting things unpacked. John has put in the flooring in the majority of the house. The three spare bedrooms are still in need of flooring, unpacking, and organization but without anyone coming to visit us we really have no motivation to clean those rooms. :) (guilt trip?) My dad did come to visit for our birthdays last weekend. His friend Michele came also. With them, we celebrated: my birthday, dad's birthday, Michele's retirement, and John's and my anniversary...whew! Went to Fayetteville to a WWII museum that was fantastic and ate at our favorite restaraunt on the planet - Smokey Bones. :)

The dogs are great too. They are super muscular from running their acre all day long. They tree squirrels on a daily basis, but haven't caught any yet.

Work is work. John just moved to a new store that is closer to home (by 10 minutes) and is helping them open that store.

That's about it...come visit when you can! We miss you all!


During the last few weeks of pregnancy, Kate listened to Brad Paisley's new song "Then". She didn't just listen to it a few times, she obsessively played the song on repeat, learned every word, and sung it at the top of her lungs while driving. Then one day a few weeks after Kaylee was born, Kate was driving with Kaylee by themselves. Kaylee began to cry...then scream. It didn't matter how much Kate reassured her, pulled over to make sure something wasn't wrong, or attempted to hold the pacifier in place with one arm backwards while driving. It finally occurred to Kate that maybe Kaylee wants mommy to sing to her (although no one else would want this!). So Kate put track #4 on and began to sing. Kaylee immediately calmed down. Low and behold, it's not even mommy's singing that Kaylee likes! It's Brad's!
