Here is a video of our family this year. I know I have been aweful at keeping up with our blog.
So just a quick update...we are still in San Angelo, TX...I am 18 weeks pregnant with our 3rd baby which is a BOY!! We are so excited to be adding another sweet baby boy to our family! Arlie is getting so big! She is loving kindergarten and she has made some great friends here. She is doing gymnastics and she loves it. Deacon is 3 now and he goes to a program called Kids day out on Tuesday's and Thursdays from 8:45 to 1:30 at one of the local baptist churches. He loves it and is learning so much. I am enjoying having 2 days to myself to get caught up with work and do whatever I need to do. I know it won't last long but I will enjoy it while I can. I have been working like crazy this past year and that is why my blog has suffered so much. Planning on cutting back a lot this year and focusing more on my family. Josh is working his guts out here. He has been working 50-60 hours a week for the past 6 months. Hopefully he will be able to get some relief soon. Since Christmas break he has been coming home around 5 which has been such a nice change. Hopefully it stays that way. But with all this work he has been doing he has scored an awesome evaluation that we are hoping will get him promoted to Sr. Chief this June. Number 6 out of 125 Sailors in his career field. We are so proud of him!
We had a really nice Christmas this year. It was so fun to see the kids get so excited about Christmas this year. We also got to have Josh's mom come out for Christmas and it was fun to have someone come visit. We went to the Great Wolf Lodge for a couple days during the break and it was a lot of fun. Well I know this isn't much of an update but at least it is something.

Deacon's learning how to sing the abc song and he is so cute! I am just loving every minute of him right now and I sure don't want him to grow up any more. He turned 2 in November. Everyday he comes up with something new to say. So fun. Seriously the best 2 year old ever! Crossing my fingers hoping that doesn't change.

We had such a wonderful Christmas this year. It was so much fun seeing our kids excitement and experiencing Christmas again through our children. We stayed in Texas this year and enjoyed a nice relaxing Christmas break. Then had some friends over for dinner that evening.
We missed our family back home in Idaho but it was nice for our family to have our own Christmas this year. We wanted to send a special thank you out to all of our family that sent us gifts!!! You are awesome! We love you and we are so thankful for everything! It was more than enough and we are very greatful for the fun gifts you sent.
Here are some pictures of the kids on Christmas playing with some of their fun new toys as well as some videos for the grandparents of them opening up their stockings. Love and miss you all!!!
Thanks again and Happy New Year!!!
ok so here is one of the videos. The other ones are having a hard time loading. I will work on it and see if I can get the rest up.

We had a great time visiting old friends in Alamogordo, New Mexico over the holiday weekend. We stayed with our friends Josh and Melissa and got to catch up on old times. The six of us were all friends when we lived in Japan together before we all had kids.

The kids had a fun time playin in the rain tonight as it down poured on us and continues to down pour. We haven't had rain in a while so it is kind of fun. And of course it happens on the day I plan a photo shoot. So I decided to take pictures of the kids instead.

I just posted pictures from my brother's wedding if anyone cares to take a look. They are on my photography blog. http://www.tiffanyroundyphotos.blogspot.com/ We are celebrating 7 years of marriage today. We are still so happy to be together and our love is still going strong. I love him more than ever. I am so grateful to have such an amazing husband who is truly my better half. Thank you Josh for all you do for me and the kids. Your the best.
We went out last night to celebrate and enjoyed a yummy dinner at a place called The Grill and then went to the movies and saw Dinner for Schmucks. It was hilarious!

Here are some pics of our new house as well as pics of the kids. Arlie just finished her swim lessons for the season and loved it! The pics were taken with my little camera hence the poor quality of images. I had my first photoshoot here in Texas last week and I found out that my camera is not working. I am going to have to send it in to canon to get it fixed. That really stresses me out! I hope they can fix it. But luckily I have a backup camera so we got some awesome images. Hopefully things start to pick up now. I got Arlie registered for pre-k starting in 2 weeks. She is very excited. It's gonna kill me though. The kids and I have not been waking up till 8-8:30 lately and now her school starts at 7:30 so I am going to have to get them up by at least 6:30. I am not looking forward to the early mornings. Wow summer has gone by quick! Our house:
The living room
My new canvas wall display
Our awesome huge closet

Well I know we are way far behind when it comes to blogging and so I figured I'd better do somthing about it. I guess the thing that has been holding me back from posting anything is not having or wanting to deal with getting pictures ready to post as well. But today I decided it is finally time to write something. No pictures today but I will upload some soon and show some pictures of what we have been up to. So far Texas is good. We are all settled into our rental home that we LOVE. I think a lot about whether you like a place or not has to do with two things. Where you live, and whether you have good friends. Those two things can make or break a place for you. So so far we are off to a good start on liking this place. Hopefully the good friends will come too. We have been spending a lot of time at the base pool with some other people in our ward and that has been fun for me and the kids. Wednesday mornings they have a play group at an awesome park here in town and I went last week and the kids had a blast. I will have to take pictures this week so you all can see how awesome this park is.
We have seen a few tiranchulas since we have been here. Two crossing our street and a few others on some other roads. Both Josh and Arlie have now been attacked by fire ants...Josh while mowing our lawn and Arlie stepped in an ant pile at the park. She scrame bloody murder!
The kids are adjusting well to the new place. Once in a while Arlie will say she misses her friends back in MD but for the most part she has done surprisingly well. I really miss my friends. I wonder if I will ever make as good of friends as I had there. I have a really hard time establishing close relationships with my friends. It's hard for me to really open up to people most of the time. But I had some really great friends there that I REALLY clicked with. I don't know how often you find friends like that. But for now I am going to try and be optimistic and open minded about everyone I meet.
Anyway, on to other things. We had a really great time visiting family in Idaho. I ended up staying there extra long almost two months because we found out my older brother was getting married. So I decided to just stay instead of drive back with Josh and then turn around 3 weeks later to come back. So because of that I got to go to my 10 year reunion that I didn't think I would be able to go to. It was a lot of fun to see everyone again and see how much some had changed and how others I could catch up with like no time had passed at all. My brother's wedding was amazing. I haven't felt that much joy and excitement for a wedding since my own. I am so happy for Travis and his beautiful wife Ashley. She is going to be an awesome addition to our family. Their wedding was gorgeous! I got to photograph all of it and we got some amazing pictures. I will post some of those soon too.
We had an awesome 4th holiday. Josh flew back for the holiday and we spent the day at the parade in the morning and a BBQ with my brother Scott and his wife and family. Then we enjoyed the fireworks together down by the river in IF. I swear I haven't seen a better firework show anywhere else. Deacon LOVED it! Everytime a firework would go off he would yell WOW!! WOW!!! WOWOW!!! Arlie loved it too of course. And it was so nice to be there together as a family ejoying it. It was the first time Josh and I have been together for the 4th of July since Arlie was 1.
Some updates with the kids. I took Arlie in for her 4 year check up and she was amazing. She asked me if she could go to the doctor and I told her well we actually do need to take you in for your 4 year check up but you are going to have shots. She said yay for shots! Which I thought was weird. But she was exceptional for the doctor and really good for the shots too. She barely cried. Then she had to show off her Dora bandaids to everyone she saw. She has grown a few inches in the past month so good for her! She is now 39 inches tall and I think 28.5 lbs. She is now 35% for height when she was only 10% last year and 3% for weight. The doctor since it was her first time seeing her was a little concerned with her weight so she wants me to start supplimenting her with carnation instant breakfast daily and then see her again in 6 months. We'll see if it helps.
As far as Deacon goes...he has started talking a lot more lately. It seems like every day he comes up with something new. His new word today was open. When he wanted me to open his fruit snack he handed it to me and said open over and over again till I finally opened it. He is cuter than ever and I just can't seem to get enough of him. He finally said I love you the other day along with good morning. It is so fun to hear all those words. Also this boy is getting DARK down here in Texas. He is my little brown baby with white hair. And those baby blues just melt me.
Well that's just about all of what we have been up to for the past few months. I am sure I have forgotten a lot of the little details but oh well. I am sure you have heard enough from me if you are in fact still reading this. Love you all and miss you all so much!
