Ben's party

Goleta Beach has for the last four years been our birthday spot.

Manly Cupcakes

Friends and Family enjoying themselves very much

Ben wanted to start his party off with a bang so he jumped into the ocean right out of the car.

Its like she knew...

In the midst of the insanity that is moving with two small children, the delightful Katie Erb brought a welcomed surprise. If they don't follow us to Maryland I will cry.

A Name and a Blessing

Today her father gave her a name and blessing in front of the world. It was beautiful.

He Did it!

My darling husband became a doctor today. I love him so much. And we are so tired.

Our New Home!

Some of you have seen this on Facebook, but I want to share our darling new home in Maryland with all of my blogging friends.

PS How adorable is my cousin Jeri and her sweet children. They are going to be in our ward and we are so excited.

This week has been a joy, exhausting but wonderful. The girls are getting along great. Brooke is getting plenty of food and sleep now. it was a little touch and go at first but we are working on a routine. The Relief Society has been providing us with delicious dinners and the Econ department has been hosting a plethora of BBQ's. Ben has officially filed his dissertation and will be graduating with his PHD on Sunday. Life is good.

I have totally embraced the matching outfits.

Now we just need to pack up all of our stuff and move across the country in a month.
