Families are like fudge... mostly sweet with a few nuts

Isn't the Medford OR temple pretty? Of course I think all temples are beautiful and since we live 4 hours away from any temple I find temples a big plus wherever you live. Looking back at our lives Corey and I have moved a ton.....I mean like every 2 years. And just as our 2 year mark will roll around this December we will again be making another move. Corey has been looking for a different place to work considering the place he is at now has no potential for him to grow. Corey is driven and I love that quality about him. So for him to just sit in a job and know he has no where to move really was bugging him. So he applied for a position with the same company in Medford OR which would be a nice increase in pay for him and the ability to move up. We have been waiting for weeks to find out if he actually got the job or not and finally today he got the official offer. So we will be moving to OR as soon as we can sell our house and get things in order.
The hardest part was telling our kids because they are at the age now where they have made friends and are fitting in at school. They all cried when we told them but we at least could soften the blow by telling them we would be close to Grandma and Grandpa Esquibel. So we are busy busy trying to get the basement finished up and odds and ends done before the relocation people call to get our house on the market. If everyone could cross their fingers and say prayers for us that it will sell fast we would appreciate it. My worst fear is being stuck here over the holidays with the kids alone while Corey is in OR. Here goes another adventure....stay tuned.
Logan is my little helper. He is willing to do anything that I ask him. He is so loving and mild mannered. He also can get his feelings hurt easily. And boy does he love his Grandma.
Gabe to put it mildly is WILD. He has always been moving and grooving since he was born. He is our stubborn child and is very aggresive. Always thinks he is the best at everything. He is the only one he even slightly resembles mom.
Lexie is our girly girl. She loves make-up and painting her fingernails. She has a mind of her own and thinks she can do what she wants when she wants. She is always the one who tests our authority as parents. But she loves her Dad and can wiggle out of just about anything.
What a sweetheart. Very quick to smile at anyone willing to make a fool out of themselves. She has become very attached to mom and I think mom really enjoys it. She requires A LOT of attention all the time. Mom really only gets a break while she is sleeping or being entertained by someone else. What a sweet addition to our growing family.
Our 5th and final miracle. Danni has already been such a joy to our family. Even with long nights and busy days she has blessed our lives. We are so excited to see what kind of person she will grow up to be.
