Well today was my 26th birthday, which means I am getting really old. I can't believe that I will be almost 30 in just a few years. My birthday was wonderful, thanks to my wonderful husband. He first took me out to IHOP for breakfast, which was delicious. Then we went to the store to put all my pictures (800 of them) onto Cd's. I have been meaning to do that for quite sometime and just never had the time. I was so glad to finally get that project done with. After the picture adventure we went to see a movie (Salt, with Angelina Jolie) and we both loved that movie. Then we went back home for a little bit, because we both wanted to see Julien (Jeremys little brother) with his new braces. He was a little shocked at how much they hurt and how he didn't want to eat, because of the pain. He realizes that all the pain will be worth it in the end when he has beautiful teeth. After that we went to my favorite restaurant, Mi Amigos, with my sister and her boyfriend. My wonderful sister HAD to tell the waiter it was my birthday, so they unfortunately came out and sang to me. After being humiliated by wearing a sombrero we went to get some yummy frozen yogurt. I decided that after all the eating I really needed to do something to burn some calories, so we went and bought some roller blades to have some fun. We ended up going rollerblading around the neighborhood, and I must say I am not as good as I remember. I think we also forgot how hot it was outside and we both melted even though it was after 8 pm. We did have a lot of fun and were glad that neither of us fell on our faces. My birthday was a lot of fun thanks to wonderful people in my life, and I am glad I don't have to celebrate another one for a whole year!!

So a lot has happened with our little family over the last few months. The biggest change would be that Jeremy got a job transfer to Gilbert Er. I couldn't be away from my love for too long so we packed up our house and put it all in storage, and moved in with the in-laws. We will be with the Brinkerhoffs temporally until the house in Prescott rents. We are breaking the lease on the house in Prescott so we are having to wait it out until they find new owners. In the mean time we are enjoying ourselves down in the valley, except we picked the wrong time of the year to move back. I think we all forgot how horribly hot and humid it is in Mesa. I guess its the price we have to pay to be close to family and friends. Jeremy seems to be enjoying his new location at the Gilbert hospital, and he loves the newer paint job that's on the helicopter. Jeremy in not only keeping busy at the hospital but he also got a second job on his weeks off up at the Grand Canyon, flying tours. He forgot how much he hated them when he worked there before. He does enjoy getting the extra flight time and the paychecks don't hurt either. While he is at work, me and the kids have been just hanging out at Grandmas house and staying quite toasty, since she only has a swamp cooler. I have been trying to stay busy, by helping my in-laws get organized. This has been a big task for me to take on but I enjoy going through things, especially if its not my stuff. Analyce has been having so much fun playing with her aunts, and friends. She missed all her friends so much when we lived in Prescott, so she is making up for lost time. She recently started a dance class that she seems to really enjoy. She doesn't have very much natural talent for dancing but she picks things up pretty quickly, and she loves to go to class. Jaren has had a little bit of a hard time with the moving experience. He is afraid that mommy is going to leave him at Grandmas house, so I cant do anything without him following me and crying. As the time goes by he seems to get a little bit more comfortable, so I am hopeful that he will be my big boy soon. He has also started talking so much since we have been here, he loves to say everyone's name over and over. He also enjoys the jumping on the tramp with a hose to get wet, and aunt Mariah likes to take him on walks and he seems to really enjoy getting all hot and sweaty for those. Then we have Makayla, and she has gotten so big over the last couple of weeks. She weighs in at a whopping 20 lbs and has chubby legs. She is the most mischievous baby that i have had, she loves to get into everything that shes not supposed too. She also puts everything into her mouth and eats it, and she has played in the toilet a couple of times. She has gotten really brave over the past couple of days and started to take some steps. She will be running around the house before we know it. She is also a big Daddy's girl, she gets sad when he leaves and clings to him when he gets back. She just started to wave bye to her dad when he leaves for work and it is so adorable. All three of my kids are getting so big and it makes me so sad. i want them to stay little forever so they can be with me. I am going to have such a hard time when they have to go to school, that's why I think I am going to home school for as long as i can handle it. Analyce already tells everybody that she is home schooled and that she loves it.
