Catching UP!

I have kind of been neglecting my blog mostly because I know I have a lot of catching up to do. So these next couple posts might be kind of long but they will be mostly for my record keeping purposes. I will probably devote a whole other post just to Bentley :)

Here is the condensed version :)

I decided to become a presenter for Younique makeup and I am totally loving it! Currently I have 34 people on my team and I have advanced 3 levels!
I know this was a long time ago.... but this is when Josh decided he was done with his painting company. He was not spending hardly any time with family. It wasn't that his company wasn't successful because he was super busy but he was so busy that it was consuming all his time. He kept trying to find good workers to take the burden off of himself but we were not successful. So he got a job at Lowes in the paint department and that got us by for a while.

We went and spent thanksgiving with Erica in Payette and Bentley loved spending time with his cousins. We always love going up and visiting Erica and her family.

Quiet nice Christmas at my parents house. 

We decided to start working on our house so we could put it on the market.

Talked to the realator.

Listed our house. 3 days later we got a full offer and accepted it. We needed to be out by the end of the month.

Moved out of our house and moved into our new apartment in Chubbuck. 
Bentley turned 1. 
Josh got a job offer at Sherwin Williams he couldn't refuse so he quit his job at Lowes and started working for them. 
The Saturday after we moved into our new apartment I found out that I was pregnant! We are really excited to be welcoming this new addition into our family in November. We find out in July if we are having a boy or girl. We both would love a girl so that we have one of each but we would really be happy with either.

My last month of substitute teaching. 
I started rehearsals for Anthems of America.
Took a trip to South Jordan to see two of my best friends that I haven't seen for a long time!

Started watching a sweet little 2 month old Dax.
My grandpa turned 80 and we had a surprise birthday party for him.
My sister got married!

Took Bentley to Hogle Zoo and he was in seventh heaven looking at the elephants.
We found out we are having another little boy! We are so excited for Bentley to have a play mate.
Josh's last month with Sherwin Williams.

Josh started working as a lead tech at Idaho Fire and Flood.
Josh and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary.
Went to our annual Mendenhall reunion. Boy nature sure is not baby proof.... but it was fun!
We put an offer in on a house and plan to close in September!

After only working at Idaho Fire and Flood for a month Josh got a promotion, which was huge, and he is now the assistant project manager. We are seeing great things in our future with this company and are so happy he is working there.
Started a long term sub job for the band teacher at Irving Middle school who is on maternity leave.
Bought another house! I will post pictures later.

Wow crazy amount of changes in our life in one year but I woulndn't change it for anything! And the next couple months are only going to bring more changes as this new little one comes into our family but it sure is a great life to live!
