WOW - LONG LONG time with no updates!

2 3/4 years without an update but I'll try to catch you up on the best happenings.....

1.  Son - Jeffrey left on a mission in January 2012 to the Spokane, WA mission which was split into the Kennewick, WA mission and returned last December 2013 in time for Christmas.  Great mission and we are SO proud of him!
     a.  Then he returned to BYU-I for the winter and spring semesters.
     b.  Then he got engaged to Allora Stratford and will be married on                  July 26, 2014 in the San Diego, CA temple.   We are excited!
2.  Daughter - Brandi, Scott, Sebastian and PRIYA (born July 24, 2012) moved back to Indiana in Dec. 2012.  WE ARE STILL ECSTATIC about this!
     a.  Baby #3 will be born August 18, 2014 - gender will be a surprise!
3.  Son - Bill was married on August 20, 2011 to Melanie Archer.
     a.  They bought a new house about 1 year ago and are living here in               Elkhart too.  So happy for them and their new house!
4.  My parents - still doing good but there have been some ups and downs with their health but all-in-all doing great!
5.  My health - FANTASTIC after being diagnosed with Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy in Nov. of 2011.  I still say it was because Sebastian moved away and it broke my heart.  :(    Anyway, after many doctor visits and trying medication therapy with little success, I was referred to a doctor in South Bend who was able to perform Septal Alcohol Ablation surgery in Goshen, IN and it was so successful that I now do not have ANY problems with my heart.  I was the very first patient to have this procedure done at Goshen Hospital.  Quite the story but the real truth is that I was blessed to find this doctor (Dr. Nasser Naseer) and Heavenly Father watched over me during this operation almost 1 year ago (July 22, 2013) and my genetic problem was able to be fixed!  Quite the miracle and now I am back to "normal".  LOL
   Okay, that's the update for now and next will be pictures!!

Bob the Builder

Can we fix it? Ya! Can we build it? Ya!

Sad day

Today was moving day for Brandi, Scott and Sebastian who are moving to Lewisburg, PA to find greener pastures. It's a sad day for everyone left behind in Indiana as we will miss them all terribly and especially our beloved Sebastian.
Please come back soon!

More Dancing

Sebastian likes to watch "Dora The Explorer" and at the end she sings, "we did it!" Check out the hip movement!

Video of a video

Sebastian asks to watch the "splash water" video over and over and so I took a video of the video so he could watch that. Listen to him say, "Oh my goodness!" (I wonder where he gets that from?) hahaha

3 Year B-Day Party

Splash Universe was the site for Sebastian's 3 year old party. He had so much fun and woke up talking about the big splash this morning because it was kinda sceeery.

His next favorite part was the cake and he wanted cake for breakfast too!

Sebie still learning!

We get to stay home from work today and Sebastian wanted to play his learning game. He has quite the sense of humor and makes me giggle too!

Baby Genius

What was most amazing about this one is that at the end of it...I told him to click on the arrow on the left to go back to home page and he followed my instructions! (I think it was just a coincidence though!)

Michigan City, Indiana

This is Sebastian telling me the letters in the mouse pad. It's one from the Blue Chip in "Michigan City, Indiana". Isn't he the cutest thing?

It's Official!

Sebastian is 2 and 2/3 years old (yesterday) and he knows ALL his ABC's (they have to be capital letters though) and ALL numbers 0-9. This baby is one smart cracker!! He did a ABC puzzle today at church and told me each letter (don't worry - not in order) and then did a number puzzle too. I'm kinda partial but he's AMAZING!!! Here are some pictures from our zoo trip yesterday with Jeffie too! Jeff is making faces at the papa monkey who is making the same face back at him. Who's the real monkey?

Sebastian got a haircut! He was a little scared at first but sat really still and was a good boy!

He recognizes 12 letters already!

Here's Sebastian cheering us up at work again! You'll hear him say, "Pa Pa, dens" which means that Blake needs to shake his head back and forth and look like his groovin!
