*Cheney*..Our New Home

I still haven't gotten used the fact that we live in Cheney. Moses Lake is home and always will be. I can't complain about having our own place again though. We liked living with my parents, but when you've lived on your own with your family and then gone back to living with your parents it's a little hard because you have to think about other people and not just about you and your little family.

So far I've liked Cheney. It's small, but hey Spokane is a quick 15 minutes away! Roger got a job at Mustard Seed, but is still looking for another job so he gets more hours. I can't wait for him to bring me home some food. He said he tried some last night and it all was delicious. We took the kids to Kun Fu Panda the other day and I was so proud of Ethan because he watched almost the whole thing but the last twenty minutes. Ehtan would yell out "uh oh" when something bad happened. It was so cute. Ali was awake too and watched most as well. It's nice to have your kids calm enough to go to a move. It was an animation movie though so I don't plan on going to any other type with them because I know that won't be too fun unless it's a late show and they are already konked out like they did when we went and saw Prince Caspian in Utah.

Aliana is getting so big. I am convinced she is a weed. I can't complain though since she was so tiny and is filling out so there is more to fill her clothes. Everything is still ginormous around her waist. I wish that was me. She grabs at everything and wants to put all of it in her mouth.

Ethan continues to amaze me daily. He is trying to talk and it kills me that he gets so frustrated when he can't say something. We have watched a lot of baby einstein since we don't have cable yet and so he's constantly trying to say things they say. His new words are "bus, car, cat, dog, uh oh and cracker." It was so cute last night I was on the phone with Roger when he got off work and we were watching baby einstein about shapes and a cracker came on for a square and he just yelled "CRACKER" but kind of with a monster voice and pointed at it. It was cute because he sounded so proud of himself and was beaming. He also likes to take Ali's blankets to her. And he always says "OOOH" when he's around her or if he sees another baby. He's always trying to help me clean which makes me a little crazy because he makes more of a mess than anything so then I have to clean that up too. He has such a tender heart though I hate getting mad at him because he just sobs. He threw the football off the couch last night and I know he was intending for it to hit Aliana but it did right in the back of the head. She didn't cry though, but he got a spank for that and had to kiss her better. I've also noticed he's been trying to feed her when she's in her carseat next to him in the car. I found to chicken nuggets in her seat on the opposite side of where he sits because he was trying to feed her and yesterday I caught him trying to feed her a cookie. haha...too funny

Well we only have my parents laptop here so I don't have any pictures to post, but we're hoping to get a desktop soon and then hopefully I can get some pictures up.

Kaelyn and I are dying to come see you guys! I was going to stop by on my way back from Moses yesterday but was in a hurry because I had to get back for my job orientation. And I was planning on going back to Moses tomorrow evening but now we can't. We need to get together though! Ethan sounds all grown up!

That's crazy that you guys live in Cheney now. It's exciting though that you're back out on your own and doing school. I hope everything is going well for you!
