Fort Campbell, Our New Home!!!

Well, if you haven't heard the news, we are off to Kentucky or Tennessee on June 15 for three years!!! Fort Campbell is on the SW tip of Kentucky and NW tip of Tennessee. It's about an hour away from Nashville which I hear is a fun city. The closest "big" city to the fort is Clarksville, TN, so it looks like we will most likely end up there. Housing is ridiculously cheap. We are looking to buy and huge 3-4 bedroom homes with tons of land are under 200,000 some are even under 100,000! BUT, it is a sad goodbye to the city we have close to our hearts, as it is where we met, married and had our first baby. And a goodbye to the state which houses both our families and where we both grew up. (It's only three years:) Hasn't really sunk in just yet, we are somewhat excited. At least we will have cool neighbors:) (Steve and Christy are 2 hours away!) More posts to come......

Baby Kisses

Ellie is doing this new thing where she attacks Andrew's face when she is sitting on his chest. Most of the time she bites his nose or kicks him in the face, at other times she just gives him slobbery baby kisses. She's her father's daughter.

She has also recently discovered herself. The other day I noticed that she was grabbing the mirror with both hands and checking herself out. What a babe! 

Happy Easter!

The Fambly

Challa, Ellie, and Grandpa Bill kickin' it

Easter was fantastic! Church was great, even the talk delivered about church magazines went well (?). Then we came home and had turkey, ham with all the fixings, and Papa's homemade brownies for dessert (yummy!). Ellie was really excited to get her Easter basket full of baby toys so she could put them in her mouth, and Mommy and Daddy were excited to take home a garbage bag full of candy -thanks easter bunny:) We were so glad that my sister Michelle and friend Bonnie could join us with Andrew's family in Bakersfield for the day. Bonnie found the coveted "fruity monster" egg as pictured above- good job egg decorating Michelle!

Its been half a year since she was born; where did the time go? She has been such a blessing in our lives. We just love this little one.
