My sister-in-law Jo's birthday was today and we got to celebrate with her. It was so nice to be with family on their birthdays, its been a while since we have been able to do that. Jo would kill me if I told everyone it was her 39th birthday so I wont. The girls came up yesterday and we made a rainbow cake with homemade cream cheese frosting. The girls did an awesome job decorating the cake and it came out beautiful. Happy birthday Jo, we love you!!!
Finally a long overdue update. We have made it to Omaha and are getting settled. I can not tell you what a joy it is to be closer to family. We are about 6 houses away from where my brother, sister-in-law, and nieces live. We get to see "The Girls" (what we always call my nieces) almost everyday and we absolutely love it. My Dad and Mari are only about 30 mins. away. We've already seen them more in the few weeks we have been here then in the past few years. We're reaping the benefits of Dad's cooking and garden and we love it. Mom and Dave are only a days drive away. They spent over a week with us helping us get settled and lovin on the babies. And we get to them again at Christmas. The babies are doing so wonderfully and getting settled into a nice schedule. Jeff is home as of right now and the babies and I love having him home. It really is so wonderful. We are learning our way around the city too. There is so much to do here and a lot of it is FREE. So nice! We went to a great city park today complete with swans and slides. We got lunch at a great sub shop then had a picnic at the slides while the kids played. I have more to update on but for now I will leave you with pictures of these 3 adorable little munchkins. . .
