My handsome boy

I think I have a little model here
He was in one of my moving boxes.

Wow! I would have never thought that so much would have happen since the last time I did my blog. Well since I blogged last we have rented out our townhome to a man that just got a divorce. He will be living here by himself except when his 3 girls come and stay with him on the weekends. We feel very blessed to have found him and hopefully he will want to rent for awhile. He signed a 6 month lease and hopefully will want to stay longer than that. Right now he is living in a hotel so he was looking for something ASAP! we told him that we could be out by the 10th of this month.

We got our place rented out...but now what? we didn't know where we were going to live...we knew it had to be with family but we didn't know with who. My mom finally offered us a house in Herriman that we could live in for a month for free...and then move down to the basement (1 bedroom) apartment and again stay their for free....this offer was a lot least we don't have to feel like we are on top of anyone except for our little family. We will move their and see what happens...who knows Corey might get a job up in this area (Layton/Ogden) and we will have to move back and live with family for awhile. I have been looking for a storage unit or apartment manager job...something that I can with Gavin and live on-site. I know that this is the right thing to do...but it is so hard to not know what is going to happen next. I just want things to be so good and that we can start repairing our lives (from the last year and half). It has been a long road and I am ready to meet it at the end. I am looking forward to living by some of my brothers & sisters. That is another reason we decided to move out that sister Lana has been having lots of medical problems. The doctors are still trying to run test on her and see what it is going. Lana has 3 cute little girls and I feel like I need and want to be able to help her. I just hope all will work out...I know it will I just have to faith and trust in the Lord. Life has been stressful but thankfully we have our health (except for Gavin's cold...and I think he is teething) but other than that we have been healthy and I really am greatful for.

Gavin has been such a big helper. He moves things for us, and pulls things out...even if we don't want them pulled out. The other day my in-laws took Gavin for awhile so I could get some things done...I was very greatful for the couple of hours of work I could get done without having my items that I just put into a box pulled out.

That is our life lately..............................................hopefully we will have more answers of where we are going to be working and living.

Saturday is the big day to move all the big items. We got a storage unit since we don't know what next month will bring us. Our nephew Jacob is also getting baptized on Saturday. Corey, his brother, and dad will be loading up the truck durning the baptism and my family will help unload it after words. I am going to the baptism so I will take some smaller items down in my car. I will have to clean the house Saturday & Monday.
Well have a goodnight!

He loves to sit on his toys

loving to play!

he loves to put things on his head...sometimes it is scary because he really can't see where he is going.

Here are some random pictures of my sweet son Gavin. He is so funny. I feel so blessed to have him in my life...when I feel like my world is crashing around me...he will make me feel better and remind me that their is hope and to enjoy every day.

I watched my VT daughter the other day. Gavin was really good with her at first but the longer she was their the more Gavin started to try to hit her on the top of her head.

Yesterday we rented out our townhome to a man that just went through a divorce. We feel very grateful for being able to rent our home out. Until we have jobs we will be moving in a family member....(not sure who yet :) but most likely my sister Lana and her family. I feel like I could help her out while we live their since she has been having a lot of health problems. We will have to be out by the 10th of this I will be busy packing this week. I feel blessed but stressed at the same time.

Corey's 28th Birthday

Corey turned 28 on Jan. 22, 2008. We had a good day. We looked for jobs :) But first I took him to get a message. He had given me a cert. for my birthday and so I decided that we would go get a couple message. It was GREAT! We had never gone to get messages before so it was a real treat. My sister-in-law watched Gavin for us and it was just what we needed. Later that night we went Olive Garden (my mother-in-law had given us a gift cert. to use and that was really nice of her). They watched Gavin for us so we could just go to dinner and have a night with out Gavin....again it was a real treat and we had a great evening.

We had Corey's birthday dinner with his family the Sunday before. They did pizza and cake & ice cream. I can't believe we are getting close to 30!

St. George / Job Interview

alseep in a car ride in St. George

going to take part of the walking tour. We were loving the weather down their.

This is outside of President Brigham Young winter home

Well hello! It has been some time since I have written. I thought today (Sunday) would be the perfect day to put some post up here.

We are still on the job hunt. I have been trying to have hope and faith that Corey will be able to get something that it make it that I will be able to be a stay home mom. I do look for things that I can do at home to help bring some income but would really like to be able to stay home with Gavin. Corey at a job interview about the 2nd week in Jan. down in Hurrican Utah (right by St. George). He would have been a driver for Pepsi and would have started off about 40,000.00 a year (that would have been really nice!). Ever since I meet Corey he has always wanted to move down their...he loves St. George...and of course I would have not minded the nice weather at all!We decided to turn the interview into a much needed couple of days of vacation. We had a good time down their but Corey didn't feel like the interview went all that well. They had told him on the phone that the interview would be about 2 hours....well he wasn't even their more than 15 mins. We tried to enjoy the rest of the time and not worry about it too much. We came home and a few days later found out that he didn't get the job.

We did get to see Brigham Young's winter home that is in St. George. We had always tried to find it when ever we went down their. I guess they have a walking tour that you can do (we had never done that either) we did part of the walking tour and President's Young home...we then went back and had lunch Pizza Factory. Even though he didn't get the job I am glad we had the chances to go down their and get away from everything else. We would love to still move down their...and maybe one day we will.
