Mother’s Day page & what’s new with us

Well now I’m only a couple of holidays behind–lol. I’m still trying to decide whether or not to put journaling on this page underneath the picture….so I thought I’d post it since I couldn’t make up my mind, lol.
Amber started crawling this week!!! She’s been getting around pretty well for awhile now by scooting and doing these flips and twists across the room but day before yesterday she started really truly crawling. It’s already getting her in trouble though. I was so excited because we have a fireplace to hang our stockings over this year and they looked way too cute!!! Well somehow Amber managed to get ahold of my stocking and started tugging at it which caused the stocking holder (an adorable very heavy duty ceramic snowman) to fall right on her head!!!! :S Oh no!! Of course she starts screaming bloody murder and since Bob and I had been right by her on the couch I had looked up just in time to see it hit her 🙁 Needless to stay I was pretty freaked out! She did get a pretty nasty bruise but it actually looked worse last night than it did today so I think she’ll be just fine. Now I’ve just got to keep her from pulling the tree down on top of her…..
So Bob has decided not to go to school after all. Once we got here and he started looking into things more in depth it looked like it would be a lot harder on us in several different ways than we had originally thought. He still has his application in with the Laramie PD but they made it sound like they won’t be hiring anyone for awhile and we stop getting income from the CG the end of this month. Bob has put his 2 weeks in at Wal*Mart because he absolutely hated it and it was making him miserable. So now the main option he’s looking into is joining the Army. Of course I’m not very happy about that option at all–to put things mildly–so please be praying for him and me as we (still) have to make some tough decisions.
Well I think that’s about it for us here. I’m just now getting over a nasty cold–I ended up catching one after all!! Amber was sick again this week too so no fun!! But I think we’re all on the mend now so that’s a good thing!

    Isn’t it weird to look back at these posts and see how dramatically different life was.

    I think head wounds are the worst! Ethan fell out of his bed and had the biggest goose egg I’ve ever seen. So scary!
