What a NUT!

Need I say more!

Some time off...

So as a mom I notice that I have much more patience with Marcus if I get a break every once in a while. If that's a solo trip to the store or library or time to clean the house I enjoy my "ME" time. Well a sweet girl at NJC really wanted to watch Marcus during the week so I took her up on her offer and had her come 1 to 2 times a week for an hour + to take Marcus to the park or just keep him busy while I get some much needed things done around here.

Marcus did really well most of the time... he would of course cry to make me feel bad about leaving him but that was just a show and once I was out of sight I was pretty much out of mind. Here's a pic of him and Sam his favorite park buddy!

Our Home!

Well you ask me how much do I trust my husband...well how's this for starters. We bought a house that I haven't even seen yet! Well not officially but we put an offer down and they accepted it so we hope to officially close on the house by July 3rd. Aaron left on Monday to go look at about 8 houses in Chadron. Well he called me around noon and said that he found the one (the night before we talked about what we really wanted ect...) and that someone one coming to view the house for the 2nd time and they probably would make an offer that afternoon.

So we talked and he said his likes and dislikes of the house and by the end of our conversation we both felt really good about making an offer. That afternoon Aaron still had a few house to look at with another agent so he went and after finishing that the other agent called and said our offer was accepted! Yeah us! Anyways here's a pic from the agency's website and here's a few details: 4 bedroom, 2 bath, huge back yard, newly remodeled. Isn't it a cute house!

We weren't even planning on making any kind of offer during this trip. Aaron was just going to narrow down to 2 -3 houses and I was going to go up next week and make the decision. Aaron said that hands down he feels 100% confident that this is our house...I can't wait to see it!

Movin' on UP!

Ok so Aaron says that this blog should be called "Marcus" because that's all that's posted on here, but not anymore! This post is dedicated to my one and only... Anyways there's a few ways that Aaron has moved on up. The first and probably most important is that he has now officially entered into his THIRTIES! Aaron celebrated his birthday on Thursday and before he came home we decorated the house with balloons and a sign and the sidewalk outside with chalk for his big day. That night we went over the Miller's who had us, another guy from church, and the missionaries over for a fabulous dinner. It was sure yummy! Well on Friday we had some people over for a BBQ and some homemade carrot cake for some more B-day celebration. Aaron has said that upon entering into his thirties that we should "really" celebrate and have an all weekend thing...and it's actually kind of turned into that but hey he deserves it!

The next way Aaron has moved on up is actually an NEW position in Chadron NE. That's right we are on the move UP to Chadron NE. This new position is an awesome opportunity for Aaron professionally and I am really PROUD of him! He will be the Director of Student Support Services there at Chadron State. Way to go you OLD FART! Love U
