The Big News!!!!

Well.. we finally found out where we are going next. We will be in Washington D.C. where Preston will be working at the Pentagon. He will be working for the Rated Force Policy Development which he will be able to use his Operations Research degree for. He is very happy because that was what he was hoping for. He said to me yesterday when we found out "man, this is going to stink.. I'm going to have a real job now!" haha.. but I think he is really going to enjoy it. I was kinda hoping to go somewhere closer to home and warmer but there is so much to do in a place like D.C and I'm sure we are going to love being there! Now we just have to find a place to live!!!!

Pink for a good Cause

On Saturday, for 5 dollars which was donated to breast cancer research, we were able to wear pink to work. We are usually only allowed to wear black, white and gray so it was really fun to add a little color.. anyway here is a picture of some of us supporting "save the TaTa's"



Also, we all wore pink hair pieces that day and when I got home Tonka decided he really liked to play with it! So here is a funny video of him trying to get it out of his hair!

Halloween Crafts

I can't belive it's October already! I went to pull out my Halloween decorations and realized I don't really have any. Well we did have a couple dish towels and a door mat but that was it so I started making some halloween crafts. I also found out how crafty Preston can be! With a jig saw and some careful drilling he made me some spooky trees and I painted them! They turned out really cute! Anyway it was really fun making crafts and now I can't wait til christmas time so I can make lots more!!
This is the outside of our house!! Just kidding.. This is our neighbors!
They really like Halloween!!

This is our front door. I cut the bats out with my friend Nicole!
Here are the trees we made not lit up

Here they are lit up! Cute huh!!

Here are some ghosts Nicole and I made together one afternoon.. and tonka pretending he's a ghost too.


And this is our centerpiece. It's kind of a dark picture but this was the best looking one!

Tonka!! He is so big now!
