Back to blogging..

At least for now. :) It has been a long time since I have updated my blog, so I will start with a basic update on us. Chris~ Is working for Neset Consulting, a geology firm working in the Western ND oil fields. His job includes collecting samples of the rock that they are drilling for, examining and describing them, and completing a geologic summery of the whole well. He works every day for 12 hours while the rig is drilling, an average of 32 days, and works and lives on site. When he is off he often gets several weeks at home! The boys and I look forward to these really awesome times! Jennie~ I am a full time stay at home mom. :) I love hanging out with my babies, and some days can be super challenging as well! I am currently over my head in laundry and dishes, and those tasks never seem to end. I am back to my passion of cloth diapering, and have even posted some cloth diaper reviews on youtube! I really, really enjoy cloth diapers, and have gotten a chance to try out several new brands lately. I am also leading Financial Peace University at church! This class is incredible and has changed the way we think and view money. It has been such a blessing to be able to go through it with out church family and friends. Judah~ is newly 3 as of June 8. He is busy, and never stops! He is also learning a lot from talking, to new stunts to pull, and everything in between. He was very proud of himself last week when he said his first Bible verse, Genesis 1:1. He said 'In the beginning, God created, uh, um, uh, the heaven and ALL THE EARTHS EVERYWHERE!' Not quite word perfect, but his enthusiasm was priceless. <3 He also knows most of the letters, how to count to 10, and most of the colors. We are going to start talking shapes here any day. :) Justice~ Is 16 months, and is just a charm. He is so happy, and can put a smile on anyone's face. <3 He is a little jabberjaws, and talks constantly. He even can say a few words already! He says "Mama, Daddy, Judah, More, Please, Yes, and All done" We are doing really well, and learning more and more about relying on God every day.

The last year: A picture review!

I am going to give this another shot.. :)

Justice, our baby will be 1 already on March 10. Its crazy to watch him grow up.. Overall, he has had a much easier first year than his brother did, who by the time he was 1 had already been hospitalized twice.

Here are some shots of the boys last March.. (I think on the 16th, when Justice was 6 days old! Quick family tidbit: Justice got his full name on the day his first pictures were taken. Chris and I had decided not to decide on a name until we got to know him.. We settled on Justice by Monday the 14th, but Zachary, his first name was not decided until we were driving to the photo studio. Its a perfect fit and we love it!

Judah at 21 Months

Justice at 6 days!

Fast forward 6 months, and we have these pics. :)

Judah at 27 months

Both boys together!

Justice at 6 Months!!

And now some of current. These were both taken in Oregon when we were there at the beginning of February.

This is Judah on the beach.. He had a blast! He got to feed the seagulls, and he got to chase them. We found a couple bigger pieces of broken shells, including half of a sand dollar that we brought home.

And this is Justice playing in the baby area of the Portland Children's Museum.

We really enjoyed our time in Oregon. Now that we are back in ND, I wish that we could escape and go out there more often. It truly is beautiful.. Maybe someday we will live out there.

That's all for now.. We will see how long this blogging thing lasts. :)
