I just found out that one of my sweet little students' father passed away the other day. My heart breaks for him and his family. 
If you could remember to keep this precious little boy and his family in your prayers I would greatly appreciate it.

Wednesday, June 25, 2008 of the perks of being a teacher

Summer has been so nice. Not working and getting paid for it...I can't think of many things better than that! Honestly, I haven't had a summer like this since I was 15 years old. It's been wonderful!

You would think with all this time I've had being at home I should be all unpacked and settled into our new house...not quite. I've been kinda's true but I'm not really in a hurry. However I did paint the entryway yesterday so I'm getting stuff done slowly but surely!

A big reason why things haven't been getting done....Babette. We've just been having fun together all day! Here are some new cute pictures of Babette and a few family photos.

I hope to post some new photos of the house soon...

Babette the French Bulldog

We got Babette on Thursday...she was from Littleton, Colorado so her breeder agreed to meet us in Wichita, Kansas. This was wonderful considering it was an 8 hour drive for her and and a 3 hour drive for us. Babette did wonderful on the drive she basically just slept the whole time.

I have loved having some extra company around the house while Alec is at work. She is a lot of fun to play with and snuggle with too.

Here are some things we had waiting for her when she got home
This is her adorable collar. She looks so cute in it.
Here she is...the precious Babette

Her cute paw (her front two paws are white and the back two are black)

She so precious :) We love her!!!

2 Wonderful Years

Better late than never:

June 3rd was our 2 year anniversary...we had a great day. We mainly spent the day unpacking and trying to get our room settled. As we were working on stuff the doorbell rang and it was a BEAUTIFUL arrangement of flowers.

Then we got cleaned up and went to dinner at Charleston's a restaurant that we had many dates to during our high school years. It was so good!

After dinner we were on mission to find an entertainment console for our living room. We went to a few different places and found a few possibilities, but nothing that we loved. So we went home and ended up watching Top Chef until 1:00 am. Side note: we have been without cable for two years (which was fine) but we decided to get it when we moved back and we are loving it!

Here are some pictures from the past 2 years:

I look forward to many more years with my best friend!

Home Sweet Home

We are finally home...

We got to Broken Arrow yesterday around 12:30 in the afternoon to find out our power was out due to a severe storm that had come through a few hours before we got there. Luckily it came back on around 4:00. Its good to be back...kinda weird...but good!

We've been unpacking all day and I need to get back to it! 

Also, me and Alec's 2 year anniversary is tomorrow...I can't believe its already been 2 years!
