It's Official

So, I'm 6 months pregnant and we are moving! Not far, just up the road a bit but moving is moving no matter how far.

We are just no interested in dealing with this house nor the landlady for yet another year. Cheers to our new homestead. I just hope we can get packed and out of this place by the 30th. Everything as far as school and church will stay the same.

We are waiting to hear about where A's work will take him next before we settle down. We won't hear about that until March of next year. Until then we didn't see the point in changing too many things if we could help it. Here's to moving every year for 4 years. Whoo hoo! Bring it on!

I know one thing, the Lord certainly wants us to stay in the ward. We had looked at 3 houses, last on the list was the only house we found in the ward. The other two has something wrong with them or someone else snatched it up before us. Blessings can be disguised in many different ways.

It's a Girl!

I only wish I had a cake like this for my shower. 

Yes, we are adding yet another girl to the Godfrey family. Hubby will be terribly out numbered now. 
Girl Power! 

I'm sure she'll be just as cute as my other two.

We're Famous! .... Well, sort of anyway

Over spring break this year we went camping over in the Superstition Mountain area. It was still relatively cool for Phoenix, and not being prepared for anything colder than about 50 degrees, we opted to stay around Roosevelt Lake. The elevation is only a few hundred feet above Mesa but we still managed to freeze at night!

The girls haven't seen that much water here in AZ, go figure, so they were excited to see a lake. The only downside to all this is we forgot to pack swimsuits! We made the best of it and played in a river/stream at the North end of the lake down a road called A Plus. The girls had a blast. The truck even made it through the water to enjoy a bit of off road driving.

Kaylin seems to have a fascination with pine cones. She wanted to pick out tons of them to take home everywhere we went.

We stayed for 2 nights in Cholla Recreation site. It was very different from the forest camping I'm used to. Dirt everywhere, no trees, cacti, flat, hot, interesting to say the least. Not too bad though going in the spring. And just about 30 minutes up the road you climb a few thousand feet and get to the trees and camping that I grew up on. Our next visit will be to Rose Creek Campground. We went up to check it out and the girls seems to like the area in the few minutes we were there. It was cold enough that Kaylin needed her coat!

Here's a view of Roosevelt Lake from the North East side of the lake. The only roads on this side are dirt and most of the way, 4X4 required.  We saw two ranches along the road tucked away in small valley's in between the mountains. They were very nice indeed, but I think I require more trees!

Here the we and the girls are on our way to see some cliff dwellings and there happened to be a little niche in the side of the mountain. They both just had to have their pictures taken.

We were lucky the weekend we came over. It was the 100th anniversary of the Roosevelt Dam, and the 10th anniversary of the bigger, stronger dam that was build in it's place. Because of 9-11 no one has been able to walk on the new Dam. March 19th the public received the opportunity to walk across the dam as part of the the Roosevelt Centennial Celebration.

As a bonus we appeared in the Sunday paper!

New Addition to the Family

My somewhere-in-between-blue-and-green TDI Jetta has done well. It's survived the many tortures we've put it through and was willing to take more of what we dished out. It's been to Houston, Seattle, Denver and a few places far between. But, with capacity for only two car seats in the back seat, it was time to say goodbye.

After months of turmoil and the occasional spousal fight we (and to be truthful it was more of Adam trying to convince me) decided on a used Suburban. It'll get us comfortably to any destination we'd like to go and we will still have room for the friends. Without further delay here's a picture of the newest addition to the family.

We thought it was about time everyone was told...

HMMM Breadsticks

A few weeks ago, well I guess it's been just about a week, Iolana took a cooking class at a place called Young Chef's Academy. It was a free try-it class to entice you to sign up for more classes. After the class we got to take home the recipe they made...Cheesy Breadsticks!

So we made them at home. Or I should say Iolana made them. I helped her get out all the items we needed, but I let her measure, pour stir, kneed (i did help a little with this and rolling), rolling, cutting, the egg wash, cheese and herbs. She really enjoyed it, and probably liked the food that much more. Below are the pictures of her labors.

Can't you just smell the garlic, rosemary and oregano?

New Updates

I'm sure you've noticed but for those who haven't, I've been adding posts that I didn't have time to make from last year. So, if you feel inclined to know more about what we did last year I suggest to browse through. I'm almost finish but I have a few more posts to go until all the pictures I have for 2009 (at least the good ones) are posted.
