Last minute vacation

Michael had to give a 30 day notice for leaving his current employer. They told him yesterday that he can leave after 3 weeks. So he will have a week off before he starts at the Corps.
So we want to take a vacation!!!!! Here are the 3 ideas we are throwing around right now

1. Hawaii!!!! what what! We have great friends who just moved there.
Pros: Won't have to pay for Hotel, get to see friends, and hello its Hawaii
Cons: Looking up flight tickets last night, the cheapest I could find was $1000 a ticket, we need 4 tickets.

2. Road trip out west
Pros: Always wanted to go, would get to see the redwoods, and could I talk Michael into taking me to Edwards stomping ground????
Cons: We would drive, the kids have always done great with road trips but this by far would be the longest.

3. Cruise
Pro: All inclusive, it will be warm
Cons: Have to get to New Orleans or Miami and that is going to be either long or expensive.

So what do you think? Or any new ideas????

Have I said lately how much I LOVE having kids.
This morning Savannah was sitting on the floor in my bedroom talking to the wall (LOL... wait) I went and sat next to her and asked what she was doing. She said "I'm talking to my friend" I said what is your friends name "Holive", I asked what they were talking about, she said "momma Holive doesn't talk, she just listens". That was that, I later asked her what color hair Holive has and it is white.
Then Thursday morning Cohen and I were having our usual cuddle time on the couch before Savvy wakes up. She woke up crying and Cohen ran as fast as he could to her and while he was running down the hall he was yelling "i'm coming sweet heart!"

Yes I woke up this morning with hives on my face and neck. Don't know what has caused it but I look horrible and itch, itch, itch! I'm about to take some more benadryl hopefully it will be gone tomorrow!
I was talking with my mom today about our "bucket list's" and here are a few of mine

Go to the Olympics
Go to the Kentucky Derby
Run a marathon
Have a baby naturally (crazy I know, but i always have)
See Celine in Vegas
Change somebodies life (for the good)

I have so many more but those are the ones on my mind tonight

Enlisting in the Army

Not really but Michael has taken a job with the US Army Corps of Engineers! We are super excited and for some reason feel very patriotic :0) He has been with his current employer for over 5 years now and we have both made great friends and they will be greatly missed.
This new job really feels like the way God is leading us and I can't wait to see where we go from here! Who knows maybe we will move to Hawaii with our friends...

And Savannah wanted me to show everyone her new hat. She has yet to take it off, when I went into her room while she was napping it was on!

Getting so Big

Savannah had a homework assignment to help her learn how to write her name. We were given a piece of paper that had her name written out in dots and she was supposed to trace it. Well she did it and she did it all by herself. I'm so proud but miss my baby! And look how proud she is

And look at this precious little man! Mommy looks a little scary, but I can't resist his giggly smile!

My faithful 9 followers, I have not forgotten about blogging. My computer has no more memory left and as it takes me weeks to get an external hard drive and upload my pics I have been MIA from the blog world. I will be back soon..... but I leave you with a quote of wisdom:

Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings.
