Meanwhile, in Austin....

Jon has been playing Bachelor in Austin for the past week and a half. He is very happy that he has his new iPad and for the free trial for Netflix! He's tried out some restaurants and went and saw Cowboys and Aliens....I think someone drew the short stick. ME! :) But he took the time and effort to send a cute Miss-You card and come CARS stickers for Cole. He was super excited! What a cute Daddy.

Jon is enjoying his job so far. He likes the people he works with-which is super important. He stopped by our house the other day and they are coming along! Walk through will be next Tuesday! We are very nervous/excited! Here are a few updated pictures from inside. (Jon took them with his new, they are a bit grainy)

He also attended our new ward on Sunday. They get at least one new family a week! Yikes! I guess that is what you get in a developing area! He said it seemed good and he even attended a Stake Priesthood meeting that night. What a good guy I married.

Cole and I miss him TONS. I wonder what Cole thinks of this whole situation. How confusing for a little guy! He has made a lot of progress in his speech since Jon has been gone. He is speaking in sentences now...understandable sentences. Like, "Oink Oink! I'm a pig!" and things like that. It is awesome. I think Jon will be surprised when he sees him again.

Just a little busy....

So, we have been busy bees over here at the Dunning household! Between seeing doctors for the last time before we go, packing, and still trying to live a semi-normal life for Cole's sake...I have had 4 photo sessions! Now, don't misunderstand, they have been fun! It just makes for an EXTRA busy single mom! THANK GOODNESS FOR LIVING WITH GRANDPA AND GRANDMA! There is NO WAY I could have shot this wedding without them.

Actually, the money made from these photos sessions has covered most of our moving costs. Seems like Heavenly Father knows how to take care of us and what we need. He knew I would be busy, but also knew it would work. I am thankful that he knows our needs and abilities so well.

Anywho, here is a sampling of the shoots.

Happy Birthday to the Best Mom!

We are so happy to celebrate Mom's birthday this year! We are so thankful she is here with us and pray that we will be able to celebrate MANY more with her!

Cole helped Grandma open every single gift...each time saying, "What in it? Car?" But he wasn't disappointed, just happy to give Grandma her gift! We had a fun day and are so thankful to have such a great Grandma and Mom.
