thank goodness we aren't in Kansas anymore...

So I got my camera back so I thought I would post some pictures from our LONG drive home! Reed had fun playing with me while I took fun pics of him!

The sun was so crazy.. Its so weird that there isn't any mountains out there.

He kept pulling funny faces! this is one of my favs!

We saw fields of these everywhere we went! So cool they are using these now. such a great resource..
He loves straws, he loves to chew on them, and never lets them go. He fell asleep with it in his hand.. :)
these are from Friday night! We had a fun little Ward halloween party.. Shanna gave us this CUTE shirt last year and it fit him PERFECT!! The little ghost lights up and everyone thought it was so cute..
Kinda blurry, but me and reed!
Our little doggy.. Reed just loves her! They play and he laughs like crazy.
and I got my hair cut. I was going to post pics forever ago. But this is what it looks like. Its kinda crazy(thats what happens when your child thinks he needs to eat it and pull it out)

there's no place like home..

We've been home now for about 4 weeks, and we are loving it!! we really did miss being home, even though we only lived there for a few weeks, but that is were all of our things live so it definetly feels like home. I decided to go back to work. I got a job at interstate rock as the receptionist. The story behind it is kinda crazy so here it is, I had applied for the job a couple days before we came home from Chicago and I really wanted it becasue it was close to our house. So I wouldn't have to comute so far. They called me that wednesday while we were staying at my parents house and said they wanted to interview me on thursday. I told them I wasn't going ot be back till Monday, and they said that they were finishing up interviews by friday. So I talked to Jake about it and I called them back thursday morning and said that I would be back by friday morning. They had me come to an interview on Friday morning and then asked me to come back to a 2nd part of the interview later that afternooon. So I met with the "boss" that afternoon, but I was the first of 4 that were the finalist for the job. So I got to freak out all weekend, and they said they would let me know either monday or tuesday. So by 4:00 pm monday I thought that I didn't get the job and they called 20 min later and offered it to me. I was SO excited. by the time I interviewed they had over 140 applications! So it was great that I actually got the job.
I love working here. They keep me busy, and its a fun laid back construction company. I get to wear normal clothes so thats a plus!
Jake also got a job. He is working over at Diamond Ranch, He is a youth supervisor. So he goes up at 3:00pm and stays till 7:00am the next morning. He gets to sleep so its not to bad of a gig. He only goes 3 days a week but there is so much over time that he makes just as much as I do working 40 hours a week during the day. So he is playing stay at home dad. Reed only goes to a little day care center for 2 hours a day and he is loving it, and they love him there! They always tell me how much fun he is when I pick him up. So cute.
So we are doing realy good.
I will post pics as soon as I get my camera back. Hopefully this weekend. :)
