The Book Tag

Ok...I'm only doing this because Alisha tagged me and I know it would mean a lot to hear that I respond. =) I love you friend!! is really hard for me to make decisions, so this was not an easy task for me. I really enjoy reading, I just wish I had more time for it.

One book that changed your life: Lady in Waiting
2. One book that you've read more than once: The BFG
3. One book you'd want on a desert island: Other than the Bible? this is too hard to decide on...sorry =)
4. One book that made you laugh: The Nanny Diaries
5. One book that made you cry: Beyond Tuesday Morning by Karen Kingsbury
6. One book that you wish had been written: A book on raising multiples by Kristi Poskitt. The woman has some amazing knowledge and great experience. It would be entertaining and educational.
7. One book you wish hadn’t been written: The Book of Morman
8. One book that you are currently reading: The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks
9. One book you've been meaning to read: Little Earthquakes by Jennifer Weiner

My life as a nanny

For the past eight month I've been working as a nanny. I loved kids and have always wanted to be a nanny. I babysat when I was younger, but I wanted to do it again full time. God totally blessed me by connecting me with the Poskitt family. Scotty and Kristi are the proud parents of Taylor Rae (3 years old); and Avery, Elijah, and Jackson (1 year old triplets). When I started the triplets were only 3 months old. It was so much fun to watch them grow and be apart of their family life every day. I have to say that I don't think any job will ever replace this one, except for when I have my own kids =). I will probably continue to post pictures of these kids since I love them so much and miss them like crazy. Here they are in all their glory...(L-R Jackson, Avery, Elijah, and Taylor & I)


The Big Move

It's now been four weeks since the big move from LA to Fresno. It was a crazy weekend with lots of seat, heavy lifting and hard work. We had 18 awesome friends and family (see picture on the left) that came over to help us pack up the 16ft Budget rental truck in LA. We did the whole thing in only 90 minutes, so we decided to take off for Fresno that night. We crashed into bed around midnight. The next day we again had some great workers in Fresno that helped us unload the truck in only 45 minutes. The process was exhausting, but really rewarding. We downsized from a 2 to 1 bedroom apartment, so we did a lot of getting rid of stuff. It feels great to get rid of the junk. We now only have a few more pictures to hang up.

My mom and sister-in-law both flew in to help up move. They were such a blessing and we are so thankful. Mom ended up staying for almost 2 weeks. We had some great mother-daughter time and got lots of organizing done. I only wish my family was a little closer. However, we are excited about being closer to Paul's family. One thing both Paul and I were reminded up during this process is how blessed we are with the friends that we have. My sister-in-law was amazed at all the people that came to help, and it just reminded us that not everyone has such an amazing group of friends. What a blessing! A big thanks to everyone who helped int the process.

The First Post it is, my very first post. I can't believe that I am going to be a "blogger." This will be a place where I can share things that are going on in my life with my friends and family that are all over the world. Since we recently moved, I am hoping this will be a way to stay in touch and continue to build relationships. I hope you enjoy my posts and will leave me lots of comments. This is just the beginning...=)
