Talon's bike

I had to post a clip of Talon on his bike, too. As you can see by the past couple of posts, they are a pretty hot item at our house right now. It seems we are always tripping over something. If it's not a dog or a ball, it's some object with wheels! I'm telling you... I really do think we could start our own car lot of kids' riding toys!

Talon is so proud of himself when he gets on his 'big boy bike'. He still has a difficult time riding it, but he sure gives it his best shot! When he can't figure something out, or get something to work right away, his first reaction is that it must be "boken" (broken). It is then Daddy and Mommy's job to problem solve. He's so funny. I just love this kid!

Big girl on the trike

Kaitlyn has recently decided she no longer wants to ride on the little toys that are her size, and is determined to ride Bubby's trike. Both of her feet don't quite touch the floor, but that isn't gonna stop her!

My adorable little munchkins

Goin' for a ride on the four wheeler.
They love to ride together in the stroller when we go places.
Dressed up for church on Sunday.
Once she decided she didn't want to wear her hat anymore, it was all over!
(It didn't help that it was nap time!)

A brief update

Wow, what a whirlwind of activity we've seen this past week. Just a brief update on what we've been up to. Kaitlyn and I flew to Oregon on the 4th of February so I could do my health testing and start my orientation with my job. Anthony and Talon drove to Oregon with Papa and Granny on the 5th so we all could look at some houses. I started orientation last Monday (the 8th), Anthony and Talon drove back home on Thursday with Anthony's parents, I left work and headed straight to the airport yesterday, and Kaitlyn and I flew home. We did a lot of driving and looking for a place to live, but we haven't found one yet. Anthony's parents found a house and will be moving in a couple of weeks.
I have to fly back for work this next week (the 16th), and will come home on the 24th. The kids are going to stay home with Daddy (which is going to be very difficult), but I'm trying to line up some houses to look at while I'm there this time. We hope to move in March, but we'll see. Lots to do before then. I think I've probably had a chance to pack a total of 3 boxes so far. At this rate, we wont be moving until NEXT March! I guess I better get on the ball! With everything that's going on, the blog has been put a little lower on the list of priorities, but when I can, I'll try to keep it updated as things change.
Our friends and family have been great with transportation and letting us stay with them. Walt and Rachel kept our dogs the whole time, which was a huge blessing, and Seth did a great job taking care of them. We really appreciate everyone's help and support during this transitional phase, and can't wait until life slows down to a somewhat 'normal' pace again.
