We are moving here...

Oh my goodness! We're finally doing it...we're moving out on our own again. Wesley keeps saying "just mommy, daddy and Wessey?" It will be a rough transition for him I think, but oh so worth it! I'm not sure how well you can see the picture, but the person on the bottom right will be me pushing the stroller back to our very own apartment!! As long as everything goes well we should be moving in about mid June, so wish us luck!! Or I guess I should say "wish us money" we'll be needing it!! :)

Finally...A Post About the Office

We decided on a logo. Thanks so much for all of your votes. It was a blast to see so many take time to vote. Here are the results...

This is the back of the business card! I love it, so I had to share it with all!!

This was the best shot I got of the banner I created. In love with that, too!

The View from the Street. If you click on the picture you'll see our name on the board! So exciting!

The Boardwalk--as we so lovingly call it

The waiting area--my personal favorite

The awesome reception desk we found on Craigslist!

The rest are kind of self-explanatory and interest Adam more than myself! :)

Last but not least...Our Bowen Therapist's Area. Adam met Peter from a BNI group. He's a fantastic addition to Adam's office.

We hope you enjoyed this little tour! Things have been finally picking up and we are getting really excited. His office is great and we keep adding a few additions here and there. We've had quite a few moms lately, so we bought a new kids table from Ikea to help keep the kids busy. It's Wesley's favorite part now.

Happy Belated Easter!

Potty Training

Okay, so I announced a long time ago that we started potty training. Well, we've been working on it off and on for all this time and then I decided we would spend all of General Conference weekend working on it since we wouldn't really be going anywhere or doing anything. It worked! Wesley was going to the potty! He kept his pants dry all day! We put his diaper on for bedtime, but then we put his underwears back on in the morning. But then we had errands to do last week, so we put the diapers back on for just a few days. Then me and my mom went to buy Pull-ups. Wesley was so excited and he did perfectly for another few days! But then Easter weekend came. We had a crazy, busy, out and about day. We had the Pull-ups on, but he was doing very well holding it. We had a few more issues that night, but still doing rather well. He stayed dry through nursery today, but as soon as we got home we rushed to the potty and didn't make it! He was sad at first, but he must have figured out that the Pull-ups work like diapers, because after that he had accident, after accident. We tried putting the underwear on while we were at Grandma A's, but still more accidents! Ugh! I thought we had this...easy, breezy. But now I don't know what to do. Spring break is over and it's back to our normal, craziness--cleaning my parents house tomorrow? okay, we can do that. Preschool Tuesday? uh, I don't think so! Any advice? We know how to do this at home, but how do we continue it when we have to leave the house? Please help!! I appreciate any and all advice!!!! Pee-pee on the potty dance

Poppies, Poppies, Everywhere

I LOVE California Poppies! When my family first moved to Cali that is the first thing I fell in love with. They are scattered all over the freeways, byways, highways, you name it. This year there is a plethora of Poppies just down the street from where we live, so of course, photo op! Forgive me for I have not done any editing. I haven't had the time lately and I'd rather just share these than spend hours on making our personal pictures perfect. But I hope you enjoy these gorgeous wild flowers as much as I do!On another spring note...We had a dove make a nest in the backyard. I had the opportunity to watch her gathering the sticks and create this magnificent home. Then my mom watched, not even a week later, as a blue bird swooped down and snatched an egg right out of that nest. I ran over to see as the poor mother dove was frantically searching everywhere for her missing egg. I felt so bad for this amazing bird. I could not imagine losing a child as she had. My heart reached out to her and to all mothers that have had to endure such a heart ache. I feel so blessed to have my Wesley!
