Friday Coffee with Nana Jane

My mom and I get along fantastically as adults! There are a few things that we have continued to love to do together no matter what. I hope I can only pass this wonderful things on to my beautiful little girls (i'm not sure Andrew feels the same way...keep reading).

Our favorite things include:
Long Speedy Walks
Coffee & Treats (at the end of those walks)

So begins, walks with Nana Jane nearly every Friday since we've moved to Kansas City! I am over the moon happy that my little girls have gotten to spend so much time with family since we've moved here. Isabelle continues to ask to go to Nana's house or Nick & Cara's house. She never wants to go home if Grandma & Grandpa aren't going to be there. I'm so excited she can now ask to see family, because so many people are within driving distance!

From our last walk....

My Cutiest

This is a fabulous representation of my life....

Love you Nana Jane

Such a little ham

Love, Isabelle & Adelaide

Moving Success

WE MADE IT!!! It has been nearly a month and I'm still waiting in anticipation to break down in tears from all the chaios, but WE HAVE MOVED TO KANSAS CITY! Honestly, it was an enormous success. Andrew & his brother, Jason, may disagree, but Nana Janette & I did pretty darn well.
Nana Janette & I were in charge of the children, the dogs and the China. We all made it successfully (we hope, I haven't checked on the China?!?!). Nana had to do a lot of "stretching" in order to keep sweet Adelaide happy, but as long as Nana was touching her, all was well. We made the 12 hour trip from PHX to Hereford in 14-15 hours and the 11 hour trip from Hereford to KC in 12-13 hours! GO US! I seriously could not have made it without her. Seriously, 4 people and 2 dogs had to eat & potty at every stop, so we kept stopping to a minimum. No one got rideculously upset and I honestly believe Isabelle enjoyed it, because she got to watch hours and hours of TV which is not the norm at our house. Andrew & Jason were in charge of packing up the house and moving the truck across the country. They did wonderfully besides being forced to drive 35 miles per hour through Payson and Northern Arizona. We moved everything into a massive storage unit and we are now living the dream with my father & step mother while searching for our next home!
We miss all of our Arizona friends terribly, but you are forever a wonderful memory to us all. We cannot wait to come visit you some winter! We love you all!!!
We'll keep you updated on what is going on with us, but eveything is still up in the air and my mind is rediculously unorganized (it's driving me insane). Call anytime!
