Catch-Up

I HATE being behind on this here blog! It makes me crazy. So hopefully after this it will be more up to speed and I won't have it weighing on my conscience. 
Like I said, we have moved back to Arizona and life could NOT be better. Things have all fallen into place and we know we made the right choice to come back. Jordan wasn't without a job for even a week before a job pretty much fell into his lap. It is all kind of a blur but Stephen, JJ, and Jordan loaded the U-Haul and made the trek from Oklahoma to Arizona. They got here on a Saturday. We unloaded everything {thank you SO much family} Saturday night and Monday was Memorial Day. As we got everything settled in I remember thinking on Monday..."Well, let's enjoy the holiday and then let the job search commense." Jordan woke up on Tuesday with an e-mail from a guy in Tempe who wanted to interview with him. {A contact from American Airlines had sent Jordan's resume.} He had an interview that Wednesday and a second interview that Friday. The following week he had the job! AND he is loving it! Yay! We are all loving life right now and it has been absolutely splendid being surrounded by family and getting the love and support we have needed for the past couple of years. So, with all that said...now for the photo update!
{Totally not sorted out and all kind of random, some are in Tulsa still - but they gotta get on here someday!}
Ollie has been "going nigh night" whenever he thinks it might be a funny time and will make Mom laugh...
the little smirk.


 I guess he didn't approve of his photo being taken. Stinker.
Thankfully, Ollie started actually watching t.v. the week I had to start packing up the house. He watched the movie Beethoven several times {his obvious fave} and occasionally would assume this pathetic stance for minutes until he snapped out of it.

 {Now that we are in Arizona, there is so much going on and so many other things to do, the little guy has gone back to paying little to no attention to the t.v. Good boy.}
A cute pic of Gru.
 "Haaatt!"
 You will see throughout these pics the boy needs a haircut. BAD. He always wears a hat so I always forgot to cut it. I finally cut it last week. Oh, can you tell what he is saying?!...
"Shoes."
Such a handsome dude. :)
 Two handsome dudes.
Ollie and Rio said Goodbye! So SO sad. :(

 We sure are going to miss that Rio girl and her awesome parents.
Ollie taking after his parents...

 That haircut I was talking about...Olivia needs a haircut!
More playing "nigh night."


I taught him to smell the flowers and he finally got it. 

 Cadbury apparently caught on too...
On Memorial Day, at the cemetery visiting Grandpa's who served our country.
 Chris and Heather's gang went up to the cabin in Prescott and invited us up for the day. The weather was gorgeous and we all had a pretty great time.



 Batter UP!
The Outfielders.
 Thanks for the invite guys! Let's do it again sometime!

We celebrated getting a new job! Oh, happy day!

 Oliver has taken up the harmonica...and performs in the buff, apparently.

And finally....'Does this haircut look good on me, or what?!'

Last but not least, Cadbury has obviously taken up playing the recorder. He is a dog of many talents, what can I say.
Done! It wasn't as grandiose as originally planned, but it got the job done and now I am officially caught up!
