Nicholas Speaks Out....

Last night Kevin and I decided to take the kids to Olive Garden for some family time and dinner. The kids of course did not want to act the right way until the appetizers arrived. Then we all pretty much filled up on salad, bread sticks, stuffed mushrooms, clamari, and cheese sticks...even Kevin ate stuffed mushrooms with me! By the time the food came, Nicholas and Kevin were the only ones that really ate their food! I ordered the Tour of Italy which had Lasagna, Chicken Parmigina, and Fettuccine Alfredo. Of course, Nic had to have some of my Fettuccine. Since there was not a lot on the plate due to everything else it did not take the two of us long to eat it all. It happened to work out that our waiter had just checked on us and was walking away when Nic noticed we were out of the Fettuccine. Out of nowhere, he yelled out, "Hey Buddy, you ate it all. Why?" He yelled this right at our waiter! Kevin and I could not help but to laugh at him. It was the first time either of us had really heard him put together a full sentence directed towards someone like that with a question! It was just too cute!

You....Eye on You

We took the kids to play at McDonalds, and out of nowhere Nicholas starts yelling "You...Want You" or "You...eye on you". This all started after we bought and watched the movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. At the very beginning someone makes a comment about keeping their eyes on someone. Well, of course, Nicholas picked up on that and for a few days all we heard was "You...eye on you". Lol. That is all he would say! It is so cute and funny to watch him. The video is not the best, but gives you an idea of what he was doing and saying. When he is not running around and playing it is a whole lot easier to understand! Plus, he says it right.

Here We Go Again...

As you all know it is very rare that we stay at one location for a very long length of time. Even though we did stay at our house in Horizon for almost four years. However, the time has come to part with our house due to some upcoming changes due to the Army. We are in the process of moving out of our house and into an apartment as this update is being posted. Once we are moved we can prepare the house to sell!

We have been talking with Branch and more than likely we will be coming down on orders rather quickly and going back to Germany! Which by the way, all five of us are more than excited about! We cannot wait for the opportunity to go back over and experience the life in Europe again! This time it will only be better!

Our new address is:
601 S Mesa Hills
Apt 314
El Paso, TX 79912

Fun at Bob O's

                       Happy 7th Birthday Caitlin! We let her pick how to spend her day and she choose Bob O's

Curiosity soaked the cat

All I wanted tonight was to relax in a hot bath when I was joined by my new kitten. Roscoe, is what Kevin has named him. No matter how many times I pushed off the edge, he jumped back up curious of the bath water. He kept swatting at the bubbles, which made me a little nervous thinking that he was going to fall in. Then I remembered that cat's are supposed to be more graceful than that. Man, was I ever wrong! Right after I took this picture Roscoe somehow managed to fall into my bath, getting himself soaked! I am talking drenched! He scrammbled to get out, scratching my foot up pretty bad before he managed to get out. He sat on the bathroom floor trying his hardest to lick the water off!

Nicholas has found a liking for Spiderman! Now all we hear are "my car" and "piderman". We are working on him saying words that begin with s, which is not coming along as well as we would like. For now, he refers to Spiderman as "piderman". The video is shortly after he started saying it.
