Straight Hair

This is the new hair, I got it straightened and i LOVE it... it's so easy to take care of now!

And E-lo if you look close you can see it, but it's pretty small. I am glad I got it done, and does your dad really believe you? hehe

Friends in other continents

I am back in school (well on Monday) but mostly the classes are online. I have one I will have to go to, and I am excited. I will be a nurse in less than 2 years. It's really exciting.

Lil S is having some tough times transitioning to bed time, but it's also a minor problem as she has moved all the way around the world. In all she is adjusting well, but is quite clingy to mommy. ;) I am sure we all were as 2 year olds.

D is enjoying work, and excited about exploring the outback. It's a great adventure and we learn new things about Australia every day. It's beautiful out here in the winter (think Phoenix in America in January). Not a cloud in the sky and virtually no rain. I know that most of our family in Texas wish for that now... NO rain! heh

The Dog is loving being with us, she is very well mannered, doesn't beg too much, and goes to sleep in her dog bed. She is also housetrained which is very nice, since our previous pets weren't as well trained. (we still miss them though)

We wish we were with family right now, missing everyone a lot, but making lots of new friends. Plus all the kids love playing with each other!

Out of the mouth of Babes

So this evening while watching some Little Einsteins after dinner she asks me, "What's that Mama?"

I say to her, " That's a trumpet."

She looks at me and says,"A strumpet?"

After that every time we see/hear a trumpet play in the episode, she gleefully yells "STRUMPET!"

Tonite we met some really nice people. I think around new place and new people I get nervous and say anything and everything that pops into my head. D really notices that. I think it's more that I want to make a good impression, and I hate long silent pauses.

So I hope that as people get to know me that they will forgive me that quirk. But it's me. Oh well.

We are adjusting well and supposed to be getting our things we shipped via ship in the next couple weeks, so I guess I should hang up those clothes that have been sitting on the bed in the spare bedroom! hehe... procrastination is such a bad thing,but I am sure I'll get that done this week. That's the goal anyways!

We have made a few friends in the neighborhood and a couple of them have kids close to Lil S's age, which is nice, cause when we get together, for the most part the kids play well together. Sometimes they bicker over toys, etc.

Some days it's easy, but other days the terrible 2s rear their ugly head. These are the days I wished we lived close to Grandma and Gramps and Aunt and Uncles. It's hard being away from them. And Lil S really misses them, but she doesn't know how to say it. But we do love this modern age we live in, and she does like to see them online and see their pictures. So it's not too bad.

I have updated a ton of pics on flickr from our various trips/moving. If you have a flickr acct and want to see ours, email me and I will add you into my friends/family group. And it's free if you want to join :) it's so much easier than sending huge attachments etc!

Ok... gotta go and sleep!
