Little Miss Audrey

Audrey Blenda joined our family on January 28th at 07:05 AM. She weighed 6 pounds 6 ounces and was 19 inches long. We made it all the way up to San Luis Obispo without having to deliver her in the car and enjoyed the beautiful moonight drive along the Central Coast in the process. What a change from Derek coming in the middle of a blizzard! We were expecting a small little peanut but not a six pounder. :) More pictures to come this week! Here's a preview...

So as our lives are about to get turned upside down once again with our new addition wanting to make her entrance, I thought I had better post a quick update so as not to appear that I am totally slacking.

1. I have run out of things to clean. Everything from inside the washing machine to the silverware drawer has been done.
2. The rainy weather has been fabulous and I love the change.
3. Bending is a graceful movement that I took for granted for too long. Yes I am 37 weeks and little Audrey will most likely come soon. She just has to wait for Grandma Dee to get here from New York. Hold on for 4 more days, baby!
4. Courtney lost her first tooth. She was so excited and her second one is wiggling its way out to follow suit.
5. Ryan has fallen in love with skateboarding and we make our way to the skate park every weekend it seems.
6. Home is where the Air Force sends update on this one would be nice.
7. Breanna has developed a taste for "Hobbit Food" and quizzes us every night on new things she has learned reading "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit."
8. Derek is now yelling "Fire in the Hole!" every time he pees in the toilet. Hilarious!
9. Kevin is now an all weather runner as he ran in the drenching rain this morning with his squadron. You go honey! I will join you in...sigh, not soon enough. :)
10. Our last trip to Disneyland is fast approaching and I am already saddened at the thought of having to leave our "Happy Place" this summer. Bummer.

New Year's Eve 2009

So our annual tradition since living in California has been to go to the beach on New Year's Eve. Yesterday we happened to go when the tide was -1 and it was amazing. Absolutely amazing. What a wonderful world we have to live in...
