This and That

We are getting a little more settled into our house but still have a long way to go. Here are a few pics of our new couch and our 6 week photos of Aidan that I finally got around to framing. We also got a new washer/dryer. This may seem boring to some peopel, but Cliff and I have been renters for 5 years which means 5 years of using other people's washer and dryer, so this was really exciting for us.
Also, wanted to let people know that Cliff called to tell me that this year instead of putting him in the non air conditioned dorm, he got an apartment with air conditioning. Needless to say, that was all the information I needed to pack my bags and head to Portland. Aidan, Gazey, and I will drive out tomorrow morning. YAAAAA!!!

All by my Lonesome

Cliff headed off this morning for P.U.M.P (Portland Urban Ministry Project). He will be gone through Friday night. He then will leave again the following Wednesday through Friday to go camping with the teens and then to leave again on Sunday for a week to go to church camp. Needless to say the next couple of weeks will be very lonely for me and Aidan. Luckily I will be going home the 4th, so that is something to look forward to.
I always hate it when Cliff is gone. Aidan and I miss him so much!!! He is also such a help to me around the house and giving me some Mommy free time. Hopefully these next 2 weeks will go by quickly. Say a quick prayer for us.....I'm a little scared being in this new house all alone and I tend to break down a little when he is gone....LOL
On a bright note, however, I have lots of pictures saved on my computer that I have not been able to post do to our move and am not working this week, so expect many posts in the next week or so.


6 Month Checkup

Aidan had his 6 month checkup a couple of weeks ago. I grabbed my camera for this appointment. He loves going to his checkups, I think because he gets so much attention. Here are some pics I shot. He is doing well and is very healthy. Appointments will start slowing down now. His next one isn't until he is 10 and a half months.

"I love the doctor's office!!!"

"Hey Mommy, can we get some of this paper for home!!!"

16 Pounds which puts him in the 25% for weight. 75% for height

"How does my heart sound doc?"

4th of July Weekend

We had a very eventful 4th of July. We headed to Portland on Friday morning where we checked in at the Cascade College lectureships. Cliff taught two classes there on Saturday morning. We stayed at the college until Monday morning because our good friend, Bryanna Martin, got married on Sunday evening. We got to see a lot of our good friends from York and Abilene. It was so great to catch up with everyone. Here our some pics of our mini vacation.

Father's Day

I know I'm a little behind on this post but better late than never right. We had a great father's day. I woke up early and went and got Cliff donuts. Then after church I made his favorite, Mexican casserole, for lunch. We then headed out with Gazey and Aidan for a walk in the park. We topped the day off by going out to dinner and then to see the new Wolverine movie. It was a very fun day and I think Cliff enjoyed himself. I also created a collage and got it framed for his office at the church building. I feel so blessed to have such a great husband and father for Aidan. He continues to be a blessing in our lives and goes above and beyond. I love you Clifford!!!!


6 Months!!!!

Well we can hardly believe that Aidan is 6 months old now. It has gone by sooooo fast. Here are some pics we have taken in the last couple of days along with his 6 month video. Enjoy!!
