A new look

Here is the latest as far as our moving news goes:  We are headed to MT this Thursday-Sunday to look for a house to rent in Helena.  The movers are coming April 8th and 9th to pack our things and then we are taking the ferry to Prince Rupert BC on Sunday, April 11th.  We are planning to drive to Seattle to see Paige and Karmen and then over to Spokane to see my brother on our way to Helena.  We are hoping to sell the boat and our car before we leave (not to mention the house).  YIKES!

We just finished the floors in the house so I thought I would post a few pictures of the upgrades we have made while living in Alaska.
The Kitchen floor was white with pink flowers and the countertops were a yellow laminate.  The Laundry room and bathroom floors were yellow.
The flooring in the livingroom was just plain old and nasty.  Reid and Jeremy installed the floor. 

I still haven't figured out how to rotate pictures so you will have to turn your head to the side.  Picture orange countertops and a yellow floor as the "before" picture for our bathroom.

Reid had fun with the fireplace.  It wasn't part of the plan to redo it, but I am glad he did.

Pre-Tulip Festival

We went for a LONG drive up to see the tulips.  We were a little early, but there were a few tulips for some photo's with the little ones.  It was so great to have Jesse, Tricia, Sophie and Shelby here. We were happy to see Esme get to know her cousins better.  Shelby was facinated with Esme, and once while Esme was crying in the car, Sophie exclaimed "Mom, This BABY!"  We had a lovely time, and as always it is soooo hard to say goodbye.  Thanks for spending your hard earned spring break with us.  We loved it.

Zoo Day

We went to the Cougar Mountain Zoo, It is a tiny little Zoo, Sophie fed the deer, me and Esme and a parrot, Tricia, Sophie and a cougar, Tricia, Shelby and Sophie on a camel, and Sophie with a Tiger.

Pike's Market Really Fast

Esme had a melt down so we hit Pike's really quick.  Sophie and Shelby at the pig near the flying fish:)

Jordans boss has a daughter with a ladybug room and these are the paintings that they wanted for her.

Charlee and Jett

I have not posted anything on the blog for a while so, i thought i might update some of the pictures of Charlee and Jett.  Well, Jett is getting so big, i cant even stop it... and Charlee, well Charlee has a thing for princesses!!!  it all started after Christmas when gramma got Charlee her first princess dress.  ever since then she wants to be a princess all day every day.  we were lucky that we found a box of dress up clothes at a garage sale so that we can keep up with Charlee's princess dress demands:)  In fact, because she loves princess dresses sooo much, she is going to get another one once she gets potty trained (which she still has a way to go).  But thank you thank you thank you mom for the original dress:)

Reid had a Layover in Seattle

So we had a Seattle Day on Thursday.  We are lucky this month because I will be seeing 3 of my siblings in March!!!!Yippeee!  (I do miss you Caroline-y) But it's nice Reid adjusts his flight to spend time with us.
We went to the Space Needle because he hasn't done that yet, we went down to Pikes Market, got some squeaky cheese and hot chocolate and vanilla steamed milk.  It was a treat for sure.  The biggest treat was having Reid:)

Sleeping Jackson

Joss and Jackson have been into sleeping in sleeping bags and tents lately, and this is how Jackson fell asleep the other night - thought it was cute with his little hands by his face!
