Some photo updates

We made the treck to WI to see Tim's sister a few weeks back, it has been awhile and it was great to see them.

Jackson is such a great kid. And I think as far as babies go, he's pretty easy too. For now anyway.... :P Here he is checking out the swings at the park.

Finally a picture of our little chicken on Halloween

Today is a good day. Tim started a seasonal job at Cosco this afternoon and right before he left, he got a call for an interview for Monday for a job he's really interested in. AND we just found out that we have a signed, 18-month lease for the upstairs of our duplex. Wow. Exclamation points can't even scratch the surface of how thrilled we are. This is like the best day of my life!

Even with a full duplex, the rent we are bringing in is still quite shy of our mortgage, but we rejoice that it's full nonetheless. The coolest thing about all this is that about a month ago God told me that when things started to happen for, the provision was going to get a jump-started. Praise the LORD for His faithfulness.

We sure have a lot to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Our life is not so exciting right now

Our life is not all that exciting right now. Heidi and I pretty much spend our days at home and try to see friends on the weekends. My job search has been pretty quiet until today when Costco gave me a second interview. It is a part time, seasonal stop gap job but we could use some income. Once the drug test and background check comes through, the job offer will come. I will still keep looking for full time work but it will be nice to have something to do. Heidi is also looking for some part time work. Our desire is for her to be able to stay home but she may have to work for a little while until we can get settled again. The duplex still has an empty unit and that is causing our bank account to drain at an alarming rate and cause us to seek extra income. Hopefully we will have tenants soon and that stress will be over. We'll keep our readers posted.

My Denver Broncos have taken a promising 6-0 start and flushed it down the toilet with three straight losses. This Sunday's game against San Diego could determine the season. I am not hopeful.

Jackson is a full fledged crawler now. He can travel the length of a room incredibly fast. The other day I left the laptop on an ottoman and went into the kitchen for a moment. Jackson raced across the room, pulled himself up to his feet, and started banging his hands on the keyboard as hard as possible. After I rescued the computer, I noticed that he has decided that he has a new favorite activity. Every time the computer is open, he goes for it. Why does he pick the most expensive thing we own besides our cars to play with? Despite that one thing, he is a sweet baby and we sure love him.
