It's Officially, Official...

We finally have our house up for sale. (did anyone think I was going to put something else??)  We have loved living in our current neighborhood.  Growing up in the country made me so excited to get out once I finally was married and moved to the city (maybe, I should use town, because Cheyenne is quite small compared to where many of you reside).  It is so nice to be close to conveniences like the grocery store, gas station, bank, have neighbors that aren't more than a 3 min walk away, and walking to school, plus having family right down the street!  We love living next to Mike & Amanda so much and this is one of the  things we are going to miss most.  Tai and Kaila are best buds, Kuhio and Kalea, too.  I love that Kuhio comes and picks Kalea up for school every morning and they accompany each other home as well!   However, as much as I loved all of these things, I find myself yearning for my piece of prairie, especially, now that I am raising kids.  I want wide open spaces for them to run around on, for me to yell and know that my neighbors had no clue, and most importantly to see my sweet husband more.  That is probably the biggest reason!  Come summer our lives are beyond hectic and many days we won't even see Danny because he is up at the crack of dawn and home late because he was at the shop working.  We purchased land out North of town a few years back and since built our shop out there.  We are finally ready to get our house going as well!  We or rather I have decided to sell our house FSBO.  A little scary, but realtors fees are a hard "pill" to swallow.  Good thing for modern conveniences....the internet, namely!  So we will see how this goes, after all this is a want....we don't have to move...but it is something we would like to do.  Here is our listing:  and here is a peek at our house plans.  We have made a bit of changes to this plan but this is the plan that we started with:

It's been a long time...

Not only has it been a long time that I have posted on my blog...but this last weekend we were able to be in Texas for the blessing of David's newest addition, Noa. We had a blast and it was so nice to get out of the cold, windy Wyoming weather and enjoy more pleasant temperatures! It has also been over 5 years since all of us siblings have been together! It was so nice to be with all of my brother's and sister and parents. We did miss having everybody's families there, but I will take what we had!

Alani & Kalea

We went to Whole Foods in Austin and ate to eat at this place, the chocolate mousse is divine, I had the teriyaki salmon with rice and veggies, yum!

We also went to play at a few amusement parks. This is one of my fav. pics...they boys into the motorcycle game, of course, and little Tai looking like an expert. Tai was in heaven at this place...could have gone all night, but after throwing himself on the floor and crying (us laughing at him) we finally got him out and in the car.
We ate at a great BBQ pit, Rudy's, AWESOME! Wishing we had one in Cheyenne! We also met up with a good friends, Natalie and Justin, at Rudy's other franchise, Mighty Fine Burgers! The kids loved these restaurants because of the hand washing machines...they were pretty cool! They also had a great selection of bottled sodas.

Funniest Home Video

I was working down in the office when Kalea came running down, in what I thought was a panic, until she made me run upstairs to find this....

We can be together, forever someday

On June 19 we were saddened to find that our beloved Bruiser had died. A tragic accident of him being too friendly with dogs much bigger than he. We loved Bruiser so much and have so many fond memories of him. I am going to miss him coming running out the garage door every time we came home and being soo excited to see us. I miss him being our cleaner of food off the floors. I will miss him being carried everywhere by the Kalea and Tai and the neighbor kids. I miss his excitement and his exuberance. I will miss finding mutilated Barbie's and other various toys underneath Kalea's bed. He was so outgoing and loved to visit all the neighbors but was very protective of us. We love you Bruiser and miss you terribly....we can be together, forever someday!

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an
animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet
goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our
special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of
food, water and sunshine and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and
vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong
again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times
gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small
thing: they each miss someone very special, someone who was left

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly
stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his

eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly, he breaks from the group,
flying over the green grass, faster and faster. You have been
spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling
together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses
rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and
you look once more into those trusting eyes, so long gone from your
life, but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together...
