it's been awhile... a lot has happened in our lives since my last post.

*we live in texas now and have been here for just a bit over a year

*we have made a ton of friends here which has been a huge blessing... and it's been nice living near my sister, brandi, kelly and james... love them!

*all the kids have been surfing competively and doing great - tyler has been killing it, tannyn got third in her first contest and tayli got fourth in her first contest!

*texas summers suck - so HOT!

*dan fishes a lot since there is rarely any surf

* ty went to bali on a missions trip this summer - we are beyond proud of him and his love for Jesus and others

* in february we found out we are expecting!

*in june we found out we are are expecting TWINS! one of each...boy and girl..

*i'm due at the end of october but hoping they come a few weeks early... my belly is HUGE!

*i'm planning a home birth and have the most wonderful mid wife, chris duffy, whom i completely trust and respect... we love her assistant, ashley, as well. they are awesome!

*tyler just turned 15, tayli turned 5 in july and tannyn is almost 8!

*dan and i celebrated 9 years of marriage on august 9th

so much change has happened and i'm sure if i put my mind to it, i could write a book! but i have total pregnancy brain and can't think of anything else... but i wanted to update you all on our lives. i'm not sure if many of you still check my blog, but if so, let me know if you would be interested in me keeping up with it from here on out - i'm sure i'll have a lot to write about over the next few weeks until the arrival of the twins and, of course, after they come.

looking forward to this journey...


*all pics are from my iphone/instagram...sorry for the bad quality

I've just started reading your blog (found you through instagram-on James' page, and loved your pics!) but I read it all the way back a few months ago, and I would love for you to continue blogging! I'm terrible at it, myself, so I always like to read about other peoples lives/experiences. Have a great day :)

I just recently started following your blog and I love it! so please continue:) I also love you and your husbands instagram photos! even your sons too because I am the same age so it's cool to see. I was so blown away when I read your story, you are such an inspirational family with how you trust and love God and how you love eachother. I guess you could say with how you "keep calm and carry on"! thanks for sharing
