News and Our visit with my sister and her family.

It has been awhile since I updated this so I thought I would come in and give an update. I recently got a position as a customer service support and I start this position on monday the 28th. I'm really looking forward to it because it sounds like something right up my alley. I might end up with a crazy shift but that's ok because it's something I have a feeling I will like. Besides that, with some hard work, they could give me a pick of shifts in the future.

We went up to Jessica's this past weekend to visit and meet our new niece. She is just too precious. Kierra warmed up to Ian pretty fast which shocked all of us. It would be so cute, Ian would go hide, and Kierra would say, Ian's hiding, lets go find him. Or if he was playing with her, she would be like, ian's gonna get me. It was pretty funny to watch. She has grown quite a bit since I last saw her. Kamrynn(probably misspelled her name) is so precious. She is a good baby. Ian and I babysat her and Kierra on Friday night so jess and Rod could go on a real date. She would sleep for a little bit, and then wake up. She has really started to make some smiling faces and you could just watch her for hours. Pictures up next. I didn't get too many because I was more interested in visiting and holding the new one, than taking them.

Chrsitmas/decorating update

We are back to finally update after our first Christmas in our new home. Ian's parent's came in the Friday before Christmas and brought us all kinds of goodies for decorating/storage/working surfaces. It was a great visit. We cooked up a ham/kaiser potato's(something that my grandpa on my dad's side came up with and has been handed down)/cranberry salad(this was his mom's side of the family's recipe via his grandpa)/mac and cheese/salad/rolls/etc. We also decorated our first letters for our visitor's wall. You will see what I mean in a few pictures. Any person that comes for a visit we are buying your first initial for you to paint when you come to visit for the first time. You can decorate it however you like and then when it dries you hang it up below our "Welcome to our home" sign. It's your way to leave an imprint on our home. Back to the main story. After my grandma,sister,mom and nephew stayed with us, we messed with the garage and moved in most of the furniture that Ian's parents brought down for us. On to the pictures.
