Our 7th anniversary just so happened to come the month @wshill started working for a copper mine. He brought me home these pretty little pieces of copper, made a key chain of penny's with our important dates and got me a dozen 7 different color roses. Lucky to be married to my best friend!

September has wrapped up. 
It was a long summer and it is finally feeling like we are back to normal. I am so happy to have Willie home after 6 weeks of working in Mesa. I am not cut out to be a single mother... and I really missed having my husband home at night. In late July while Hoyt was in the hospital we made a huge choice to change jobs. It was scary at first to make that leap of faith but so far we are happy and excited about what has come! Willie started with Freeport McMoRan in August and Vance now thinks his dad is Bob the Builder! We did a lot of traveling and spent lots of time with family.
 It seems like Willie and I  like to shake things up a lot. We are constantly moving and changing jobs. Somedays I think a permanent house, job, ward and neighbors would be nice. So far that has not been our life and I would not trade this crazy roller coaster for ANYTHING!!! 
We have so much fun and no matter what happens we are always in it together. Life hasn't always played out the way we hoped it would.  Still, no job, no stress, no move, no regrets, no hospital stay has ever been able to stop us from being a happy family. 
For that I'm thankful.

Labor day. No laboring here.
