Lorelei's Birthday and a Party for her Brett and Zeke

For Lorelei actual birthday we went to Cold Stone, she got her free birthday ice cream and I got cupcake for everyone else there. It was fun to do a little something on her actual bday. Then we had a party to celebrate Zeke (9/20) Lorelei (9/21) and Brett (9/22) later that weekend.

Brett wanted this gas mask from the army navy surplus store, so I got it for him. Handsome huh, he is single ladies.

Not sure how well you can see there is binder in James lap. Karen filled it with crayons, markers, scissors and other awesome art stuff. Plus, wait for it.............. Dora and Diego coloring books. She was screaming Dora, I think it was a hit.

Yummy cold stone

Just Cause it is cute

These are just a few cute pictures I liked.

Brandon and I went out with Joe and Katie for dinner and movie. Jessica said this is how Lorelei would go to bed, if Abagayle was holding her.

Brandon's work how we got to Seattle again

While we have been living in St George, since March, Brandon has been working so hard on trying to find a place to practice. Thankfully Costco transferred him. He met with a physical therapy company about sharing space in their office the two days it was closed, he met with VP who was on board. Then the top dog said no, he didn't want a chiropractor working there. Over the next 6 months Brandon met with or talked to every chiropractor in St George at least once. Only one guy as even willing to share space, he seemed to have shady business practices, so we passed. The chiropractic world was very weird among the chiropractors down there, very territorial maybe cause there is not much territory. Anyways in July I saw a guy in Seattle was hiring, I typed up an email and met to save it as a draft but accidentally sent it. Long story short he called the end of August and wanted to know how quickly we could be in Seattle. After talking and praying we decided we had exhausted all of our efforts in UT and needed to start working as a chiropractor. We actually felt very peaceful about our choice, not sure why were supposed to move to UT but I know that was the right choice also. We decided we were going to move even if this guy didn't end up hiring Brandon there was more opportunities up here. So we packed up and left 5 days later. We were all sad, I am crying now typing this. The kids were excited to be by family but sad to leave their friends and Joe and Katie. I will always be grateful for our time there and the generosity and love all the Guisingers gave us while we were there. But we had to move on. the timing actually worked out well because Brett was moving home that weekend and Jessica was driving with him, so we had help packing and driving. We drove up to Reno and stayed a few days then finished onto Kent. Thankfully my mom said we could move into the basement until Brandon got a contract here. 1. we couldn't afford to move into a new place right away and 2. i was worried about him working in Seattle and we live Kent or someplace else with a long commute. Off to WA we go
