A number of websites are buying gift cards from consumers and reselling them for a discount and verifying there authenticity. They run out very quickly! Make a wish list and they will send you an email when the gift cards you are looking for come in. Make sure you set this up to a regular email account not a work email account!

If you want to know when the big sales are check out to see if you can find the item cheaper.

(image) Walked downstairs to find Trestin with a handful of cookies with a HUGE smile on his face.

(image) Trestin in the corner because he thought it was funny to jump on his plate even after I asked him to pick it up and put it in the trash!
(Notice the diaper showing and his legs spread)

Madison and Trestin

Madison's Photography!


The first 3 pictures she took with her camera back last year. The fourth one she took of Daren Christmas Eve! And the last photo I just found on our camera.
Pretty good for only being 3!


Our Lowes Trip


So Daren and I went to Lowes yesterday just to pick up a few things that we ran out of and as we were walking to the front of the store they must have just brought out these shelves full of merchandise that was 75% off, we must have walked up at the right time because we got some awesome deals!

Kitchen Light Orig. $135, we paid $35

Trestin's New Fan Orig. $49, we paid $12

Madison's New Fan Orig. $59, we paid $14

The Rokerij


If you have never been you have to go. It is an underground restaurant that makes you feel like your in a mountain.
It is very cozy and romantic.
Daren scored major brownie points with this restaurant!

The little moments


These are those little moments that I love...




Daren is cross training into Air Traffic Control and will be leaving Luke AFB in July for school. December 1st we will be reporting to Columbus AFB where he will start his new job. We are very excited and can't wait to start a new chapter with our family.
So that means that our house will be going on the market soon. We will be super busy keeping it clean.
Keep you updated.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!


Daren's Project


The Before Picture

Here is where Daren Started working


And what it looks like now that he is finished.


The Story
Daren and I were given slate from some friends that were moving. At first we were thinking of making a walkway from our gate to the driveway so it would be easier to get things like the trash can to the road. Then we found out Daren got accepted to cross train into Air Traffic Control and we would be receiving orders to a new base after school was finished. Well as you can see from the first photo when we purchased the house there was nothing there but a long tube sticking out of the ground. Daren asked me what I thought of putting a water fountain in. I said OK and he told me that he wanted to use the slate that we were given. So we asked our Realtor about it and she loved the idea and said that it would bring value to the house. So now it is officially finished and I think he did a wonderful job. A job that could have cost us a few thousand dollars only cost us a couple hundred.

Good News.....


Trestin saw a Cardiologist Saturday morning and they did another EKG and an ultra sound of his heart. No problems. He does have Acrocyanosis which means 'blue arms' but it has nothing to do with his heart. The Cardiologist said he thinks that Trestin might have food allergies or asthma. I will be calling his Pediatrician on Monday to schedule an appointment.
Keep you updated!

Another fun day in the grass!!
