Music Quote

“Sometimes the world tries to knock it out of you. But I believe in music the way that some people believe in fairy tales…I believe that once upon a time, long ago, they heard the music and followed it.” ~August Rush~

Heya 2010!

Hi family and friends! Well I figure since it has been a year since we last posted, it is about dang time! Here it is: Nick graduated in May with a B.S. in Accountancy from BSU, and is now working for a national top 25 public accounting firm here in Boise called Eide Bailly. He loves it and is happy with what he’s doing. He gets to travel but not too much. Ryan and I are stellar as well! I am signed up to take online classes in astronomy and psychology just for fun! And I need to get some canvas to start painting again. Ryan has become a fun loving and kind-hearted almost-3-year-old. My background in child development has been very helpful and useful in raising him to be the best he can be. It surprises us how smart he is. He knows all his colors, shapes, numbers (English and Spanish), songs, ABCs, etc. It is so fun to watch how curiosity about the world captivates him. We are so in love with him! Hehe. Nick’s sister-in-law Heidi is now living with us as we are home certified to take care of her. She also helps us by helping watching Ryan and cooking us her amazing gourmet meals when she is feeling well. We love our new house and the neighbors in our cul de sac. It is now a home! Thanks to Nick’s parents, we have a beautiful garden all around our house; I’ve learned so much about flowers and plants and trees. I have recovered well from my third back surgery (spinal fusion), but my back problems still continue to cause problems. But it could be so much worse, so we must count our blessings. We are excited for the good weather so we can go camping, start bbq-ing, and go roadtripping to various places! We are thankful to have you as our friend/friends and wish you the best that life can bring! Peace, love, rock n roll! :-D

Our New Home

Hey everyone. We just bought our very first house!!! It was a HUD foreclosure so we got a really good deal on it. It is a one story, 1240 square foot 3 bed 2 bath home with a large walk-in closet and nice kitchen. We had the home inspected and there were NO major problems so we are very thankful for that. We close on the house in early April and plan to move it soon after. We love it and can't wait to move in.

Close Up

Finally I got Ryan to smile for the camera... but of course he has a pacifier in his mouth! You take what you can get! Happy Valentine's Day to all. We are going to a Brazilian Grill for dinner (new to Boise) so that should be fun. I know there's also one in SLC. Nick got me beautiful roses and the new Red Jumpsuit Apparatus cd because they are one of my favorite bands. Aaww, I love him a lot. Love is what keeps us going in this life- especially God's love for us and ours for Him. What's that scripture that says he's in all things? It's a good one.
