Afternoon Play

This is what we do in the afternoons...

My stroller has a flat tire.  I was telling Corbin how I'd like to go for a walk, but I don't have a stroller.  He solved my problem as shown below...

It was raining this afternoon, so the boys played with playdough.

And Merek ate it.

Hanging with friends

We took Opie to hang with friends too.  It was quite amusing.

This is Merek's I was just told "no" face.

I thought I would do something special for the boys today so I made them begium waffles.  Yum.

For dinner I made homemade Shrimp Florentine Alfredo.  Double Yum.  They boys helped me make everything so it was a lot of fun.

Happy Valentines Day Everyone!

These are pictures of STS-130 that launched on Monday.  It was scheduled as the last night launch.

I didn't take these pictures.  They were provided to us by my managment.

Here's a quick update...

Merek got his first tooth last week.  He started saying mama two days ago, and he is super cute. 

Rylan is doing great at potty training, but I can't keep his underwear on him.  Comando

Tyler loves to sing Jesus songs and ABC songs, and doesn't like my music. 

Corbin is making strides with his reading skills. Love seeing the changes.

Mike is back in Texas until next month.  Sure miss him.  This weekend he put texture on the office and hallway, and we partially painted them (ran out of paint.) and he put the new flooring in the office.Still left to do, floors in kitchen, Boys room and my room. No go on the house.  Still looking.

I have been notified that Layoffs will occur in May due to lack of NASA budget. Their new budget will go to R&D and we don't do that.  The rest of the company is looking at layoffs when we are done flying.  Hoping for an extention. We will be moving to texas as soon as I am laidoff. 

Kids are going crazy, so this quick update is over!

I think we found it!

Mike found a house in Texas, that we are going to TRY to buy.  It is on 3 acres, 2300 sq ft, and has been forclosed. We'll see how it goes

There is an offer on it. Let's  hope if falls through.

New Budget

Well, one good thing is coming from Obama's new budget, I'm going to be laid off, along with the rest of my coworkers... 

(In case anyone fails to see the sarcasm in the above statement.  I do not feel that the new budget is a good thing.  I have only found a silver lining that is unique to me. The thousands of people that will be affected negatively by this is in no way a good thing.  What happened to creating jobs?)
