We Are Here!

We have finally arrived. We are somewhat settled in our new apartment. The girls are still getting used to how things work. Micah doesn't go back to work for a little while so we get to have him around. We are going to be house hunting for the next couple months. Our apartment is okay but I don't want to stay here for a long period of time. I will post pictures soon hopefull but just so you know we are safe and ready to get some of our stuff sometime soon.

Famous Dave's

One of our favorite restaurants since moving out here is Famous Dave's. We went last night and the kids were so hungry. I put pics of Micah and I up to be sure that everyone knows we were there too.

Micah didn't want me to take a picture of him.

Their french fries are so good. They are really thick and crispy.
Nattie with a happy face because she got some corn bread. She made a huge mess with it too.
Mara eating a lemon. This is all the face that she made. She didn't do the sour face like I do when eating a lemon.
I love it when my kids do weird things and then say "take a picture of me like this mommy". This was one of those moments.
Alyssa was awesome! She ordered ribs, which at first I thought she wasn't going to like them and then we would've wasted that money on her getting ribs and she'd still be hungry. Well, not the case. As you can see she ate the one clean pretty quick.

Here she is on her second and eating her corn on the cob.
Look at that face! She ate both of them and loved every bit of it. She ate every last bit of meat from the bone. We definitely have kids with good taste. The taste for BBQ!!! Mmmmmmm.

Nicknames

Alyssa and Samara have made up nicknames for themselves. Alyssa's new nickname is Blondie. When Samara was a baby Alyssa called her Goonar. I don't know why! So, now that Alyssa made up her own nickname Mara wants to be called Goonar again. Nattie's nickname was Snotikiss. Hopefully they don't remember that but chances are they will. Anyways, I thought it was funny that they all of a sudden want to be called different names. Is this part of their independent streak coming out?!? Is it only going to get worse?!? They are my cuties that's for sure.

Bible Verses

Mara has been doing "school at home" since Syssa's in school. We do lots of fun activities, lots of coloring, and she's learning Bible verses (along with some school-type stuff like drawing lines and that type of stuff). These are the three Bible verses that Alyssa and Samara have both memorized. I'm so proud of her. She's only three and I'm sure she knows the Bible better than some. ;-) I'm going to type what she is saying after each video because you can barely understand her. I told her to talk loudly so the camera could hear her. Here's what I got.
