The sorry is for Kim. She's always the one that kicks me in the butt to write a new blog. While I was at mom's it was fun to update cause I had pics. But all of the pics on this computer at home are old. So maybe I'll just attach old pics- that's still fun, right? Not much is new, really. Jaran has been working on the basement the past couple of days, and he has all of the basement framed! We just need to pour the new floor(cause the house has moved so it needs to be more level), do the electric, plumbing and heating, sheet-rock, tape and texture, paint, do the flooring, do the bathroom and install cabinets, doors and all of that jazz. Hmm so I guess it sounds worse than it is. The important thing is that it's started, and once Jaran starts something, he can't rest until it's finished. Upstairs we're going to re-texture and re-paint everything, so that'll take a while, but I don't know if we'll finish the basement and then move down there to finish the upstairs or not. We'll also have to re-finish the floors as well as install the tongue and groove on the ceiling. We do have a ways to go, but it's getting exciting to start. It was hard the last couple of days, however, to get the kids to nap with banging and clanging going on downstairs! Hopefully next time we'll be able to plan to visit Bozeman and nap and Kade's and Rose's or something. Not that the kids really take naps very well anyway. Brensyn always goes down right away, but then Kies won't leave him alone, and it ends up taking more than an hour, on average, to finally make them stay in bed and sleep. Then, if Kies wakes up first, he also wakes Brensyn up when he gets off of his bed. So we need to figure out a way to fix that problem. If they are in different rooms Brens always goes right to bed, so I get quite frustrated with Kies... I just need to realize I have a great life and it's not as hard as I see it in my head! Well... this has really been a pointless post, but it's for you KIM! I hope you've all been doing well! TAKE CARE!

Just for fun

More fun

The only pregnant pic I have of myself besides the ones on my old phone that I can't forward to my email... bums me out!

Hey, thanks for the new post! That picture of you pregnant reminded me so much of Cam! I didn't turn it or enlarge it, so at a glance your face looks just like a picture of Cam when she was probably 14 years old or something. Crazy!

Yay! That is exciting that you are starting on your basement! Good luck with that! If you need any help just let us know, I got Kev some sweet dewalt tools for christmas so he is always excited to get them out and play with them!
