And Away We Go...

I have been pretty absent since the beginning of this year.  Life with 2 little toddlers make sitting at the computer a little more difficult! But we have some super fun news to share!  

Norris is about to start his LAST semester of Law School and I could not be more thrilled.  I am so proud of all the hard work that Norris has put in these last 2 1/2 years and all that he has accomplished (like a 75 page paper), but I will be glad to have him back!!!   But enough about that....We are excited to announce that we are moving...     

He has been given the opportunity to have an internship with USaid in Washington D.C!!!!  We are so excited to see where the Lord might be taking us, but we are sad to leave South Bend.  We have had such a community of friends and family supporting us through the last year and a half, but we are so excited about this opportunity.  We could use some prayers as we make the move after Christmas.  Prayers that cars don't break down on our drives, prayers for Jovee as she adjusts to a new place, and prayers for Norris as he beginnings his last semester of school!!

The "Golden" Years

Over the last few months our life has gone through a few changes.  It all began in December and is finally ending in August.  There are many things that have gone into our decision, but the Lord has opened an opportunity for Norris to finish his law degree at Notre Dame!!!!

Now, if you know my hubby at all, you will know that this is a dream that he has had forever.  He LOVES Notre Dame and we are so excited that this opportunity has been placed in our lives.  It was not something that we were looking for, but that seems to be how God works with us!  He gives us so many open doors and we are thrilled/nervous to walk through them and see what he has in store for us. 

We will miss Montana and the friends that we made while we were there.  It is a BEAUTIFUL place and we hope that we can visit it again some day.  But we are looking forward to seeing where this new adventure will take us.  (At least 4 years in Thailand or India or Vietnam or Costa Rica or Hawaii or.....)

Big Shout Out....

A Huge Thank you and shout out must go to:

Mickey Mouse Club House,
 buckets of water, 
toilet paper,
an open Refrigerator,
 oh yes and who could forget.......

These things have been my lifesavers over the past 3 years and especially since the addition of sweet C-Man!  I am not sure that I would have survived many a day with out the help of at least one if not all of these things!  

 thank you for the moments of peace in my house, 
the ability to do the laundry, 
wash the dishes, 
make dinner, 
take a shower, 
and eat lunch. 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,


One Blessed Momma!

Hello Friends

Well I missed the entire month of February!  I am going to use the excuse that February is a short month!!!  ;-)  Really I was just trying to keep up with life!! 

Here are a few photos from the month of February:

Day 11- Flights to Missoula

We were on our flights to Missoula during the 6:30 hour so we had to try to snap a picture on the plane.  
Norris is not looking at me because he is trying not to move to keep CJ asleep.  (And not the TV screen did not show movies, and would NOT turn off.  So there was an annoying bright blue screen for 3 hours in our face!!)

I was not going to bother Jovee either and let her play with her i-pad, we wanted to keep the peace!

Day 10- Hanging with the Masterson's

On our way back to Missoula we stopped to see Uncle Justin, Aunt Meryl and best of all Cousin Eden!  I love how much Jovee and Eden love each other.  They play so well together for two almost 3 years olds!

It's hard to get a good photo of this many people!  But you get the point!!
