Our little Girl....

I'm not going to lie, Taylor has taken her good ole time getting adjusted to the move and her new school. But today was a wonderful day on the way to school and at the drop off. She even hugged me, walked away and said back to me "mom, look, i'm not crying anymore!" Then she ran to me and gave me the biggest hug ever! Days like this morning make it all worth it!

Side note - she crosses her legs just like my dad did. She is pretty special.

Welcome to Billings, MT

I am going to post more pictures about our pituresque new home... but until I get motivated and get the Canon out, I am posting about our recent TORNADO!
On Sunday, June 20th in the afternoon, sirens went off and clouds combined to create a tornado 5 miles from our house. It touched down 100 yards from the office we have been using for the past 3 weeks. Fortunately/unfortunately, we moved into our new office this weekend and aren't on that side of town anymore to see the actual destruction and damage done to the large complex and fairgrounds where it hit.
Below is a picture of the damage from the rain and hail... this has happened twice in the past week! Thankfully, we have great neighbors who helps us clean it up! We need to design a new landscaping plan so we can have fun this summer - not continue cleaning up the road! haha.

Our new house!!

Here's our new house.... it's really too big for us, but Taylor loves running around and going up and down the stairs! She loves it!

Joe and Taylor coming to the house for the first time!

The layout... I am missing a bedroom, the basement and two bathrooms here, but you get the picture!

The Chaotic Kitchen during unpacking!! YIKES!!!!!

We are all settled in and getting our bearings... we started work and school on Tuesday... both are going well. Hope to see you all up here soon!!!

Our trip to Billings!

We took 3 days to get to Billings... we headed up through New Mexico, and stopped in Denver to hang out with family friends. We headed to the awesome Denver Zoo and Taylor LOVED it! We got to hang out with our friend, Liam, he was SUPER! Taylor loved seeing all the animals and ran throughout the entire park. We were super tired!

This is our trip to get some furniture for the house... Taylor thought this bed would be perfect in her new room. She did not get to take it home! :)

Last Days in Midland!

I can't even talk about how much I miss the Midland people... so I'm not going to talk about it... rather, post pictures of our last two weeks and the memories we have made!!!

One of our last adventures in Midland was a HUGE rain storm. No, this is not a river, it's our road! :)

Pack and load days were on the 24th of May... Tay had a great time watching all the comotion!

So much crap!!!
