Update


I took this picture of Tucker a couple of days ago and I really like it. Tucker loves getting his picture taken, and every time I take a picture of Penelope he is right there ready to get his taken also. I've been getting up extra early (5:45) because I am watching another child all week. This gives me a couple extra hours a day that I usually spend sleeping. I will probably spend much of that time blogging. It has been harder than I thought it would be to watch Ethan. He is very good, the hard part is that all day Tucker follows him around taking everything away from him. This make Ethan cry so then Tucker gets into trouble and starts crying and before I know if Penelope joins in the fun and I can't wait until nap time. In the end it is going to be worth it because I am going to take the money I get to buy a nice double jogging stroller. A definite necessity if I am going to run the Tacoma Narrows half marathon in August. That is my goal. Yay!! I can't offically start training until I get the stroller and it gets a little warmer outside. I still worry about it being too cold for Penelope.

We took this picture yesterday right before church. It was freezing, but I think everyone looks nice. Well, it is not my favorite picture of me but everyone is looking at the camera and with the two kids that is the best I can hope for. I had the camera and chairs all set up so we just had to run out and take the pic and run back inside.

Bob and I went to the cannery on Friday. We are well on our way to our first goal of our year supply of food storage. Which is getting a three month supply. I am not sure what to do about the water though. Any suggestions?

Once again, Your Family is so adorable! That is an amazing pic of Tucker! I love it! You should get an 8x10 and put it in his room or something. You and bob are so awesome going to the cannery! You make me want to be better with all of your goal making. I checked out the food storage site you gave and i signed up for the emails in hopes your motivation will rub off on me ;-) We have all the food stuff, but as far as an emergency plan and clothes, etc we aren't prepared. So it will be nice to get the emails and see what I'm missing. Have a great week!

As far as water goes, we have a few of those big blue 55 gallon water barrels. I don't think you would need many for your size family. cute pictures, as always!

Great family pic! Tucker's hair is awesome. Does he like to have it done? I've tried with Leighton, no go. We too have the 55 gallon barrels. However, we still need to get the tool to open them with, they didn't send one with the barrels. Takes up room, so they sit in our back yard. Not sure if that matters.

Where did everyone get their 55 gallon barrels?

I think I got some of my barrels at Emergency essentials in SL, that is when we lived down there. The others someone got a deal from a syrup factory. It was a long time ago. Sorry not much help :(
