Our Vacation

In the midst of selling our home and buying another, Jerid and I decided to go ahead with our planned trip to Angel Fire, NM. Every since I was a young kid, I have loved being in the mountains! We invited our good friends Mitchel and Amanda to share in our adventure. We played golf, went hiking, and ate a lot of wonderful food, but most of all it was VERY RELAXING! Now, it's back to the real world of packing and moving and then unpacking. I will put some pictures up of the new house soon. We did get the one I originally talked about in my previous post. This first picture is from the golf course. I had some doritos in the cart and while we were all putting, a chipmunk got into them! All in all it was a wonderful vacation, but I was happy to get home to my little girl!

Here's the little thief enjoying the fruits of his labor!

The lake from the hike that Amanda and I took while our husbands stayed at the condo watching they never get to do that at home!

Amanda and I just before dinner at the Roasted was delicious!!!

Here's a pic of Layne just for fun!

Busy Bees

Hello Everyone! Sorry it has been so long since the last post, but we have been extremely busy(hence the title). We have spent the last month getting our house ready to put on the market. We know that we want to move before our kids get in school and involved in other activities, so we thought we would just list it and see what happens. We know we have a few years, so if it doesn't sell...oh well! Needless to say, we put it on the market and it sold in 5 days!!! I can't believe it! We found another home that we LOVE and our waiting to hear back, so I'll keep you updated. Thanks to everyone who helped get our house ready. Jerid's parents came up and worked on the yard. It was in bad shape and they really helped us make it beautiful! Mandy helped with some staging, most of you know how wonderful she is at that stuff. And Lance, poor Lance. He had the "pleasure" of keeping Layne (along with Reece and Kamryn) while I cleaned my house during the day. Thanks to all of you!
I am starting my new job with One Chord Song tomorrow! I am so excited. This is Kandace and Stoney's management company, so I will be working for Kandace. So, not only is she back in Oklahoma, but I get to see her everyday and get paid for it! It will still be work, but I can't think of a more ideal job!
So, now to the pictures. Layne's hair was looking very bad, so I attempted to cut her bangs...BIG MISTAKE. I took her to Christi (yes, this is Chad's Christi) to get the mullet cut and the bangs fixed. Layne was very good and really enjoyed it!

She was so still and patient...YES, Layne WAS PATIENT!

Here's Layne and Christi after the cut was complete!
