Update:



Happy Fall


I had a little time to sit at the computer today since my kids are home (Parent/Teacher Conf.) and they are actually entertaining eachother pretty well. Anyways, I uploaded a bunch of pictures to my facebook photo album so if you want to see pictures, hop on facebook.
Life is crazy as normal. Dealing with colds, school and just about everything else.
We had a week in Oct. where all 3 of the kids had every symptom of the swine flu: a week of fevers, coughs, sore bodies and sore throats and throw-up!! But at least they've had it and are all better, with the exception of that crummy cough that forever lingers. Besides a month long headcold for me, Justin and I so far have been spared from anything horrible.

You'd think with Tyson in a preschool program that is 4 days a week- it's a special preschool program in our school district that Tyson qualifies for because he is "speech delayed", I'd have all this free time and get more done. But I spend a lot of time volunteering in all 3 kids classes, or volunteer for PTO activities, etc. But it definitely is nice to be able to run errands kid free, most of the time.

Some good news for our store... WE PAID OFF OUR BUSINESS LOAN last month so now the store is debt free!! We are eligible to get a home loan in the spring (we have to have 2 full years of taxes for our business) so we hope to buy/build a house next summer in the subdivision that we both love. But the store is doing great and we are still loving it!!

Hope you are all having a great fall and have a great Thanksgiving!! I know we can't wait to have my family come for Thanksgiving week and to go see New Moon with my sistas!!!

Been thinking about you lately. Glad to hear all is going well. It must feel awesome to have the store paid off. Our CricKet store will be paid off in about a year...so excited. It's a nice accomplishment, and nice to have the extra money.
Your kids are getting HUGE!!! And since Tyson is officailly in school...isn't it time for another one? HAHAHA.
When are you coming up for a visit again? Love you lady!

I hope everyone feels better - - there is so much going around. Luckily everyone in our family (except Tyler of course) got the swine flu vaccine. We were sick the very beginning of september, but have been better since. Yuck for you, though! Congrats on paying off your business loan and getting started on getting a house! How exciting!

Wow - Tyson looks huge! I can't believe it's been like 6 months since I've seen him (and you all!). I hope he is loving preschool and his speech is coming along. What a cutie!

CONGRATS on paying off the store. WOW! That is so great. Everytime I drive by, it looks packed. I am excited to hear about your housing adventure next spring!

Enjoy New Moon! So fun!

Hey congratulations on paying off your debt! You should go yell "We're debt free!" on Dave Ramsey's radio show. Your kids look so big. Hope you both are doing well. Merry Christmas, and Happy Thanksgiving
