Craziness at the Cooks!

Xander is everywhere! It seems like before I've even finished cleaning up one mess, he's made another...Andy asks me why I feel like I need 10 hours of sleep, and I think to myself...if he only knew....

Besides being crazy busy all of the time and not being able to see progress anywhere, I am so happy. Xander is really such a joy. He is getting very interactive and shows his different emotions well. He and Andy take turns making faces at one another to make each other laugh and it is so fun to watch! When I am with them and I have the cherished opportunity to watch this sweet interaction I am reminded how blessed my life is.

Our family is living in Shelley, Idaho now. We have been nearing closer to our goal, which is for Andy to become a Navy Chaplain. It will still be awhile but, we are looking forward to the journey. We won't know until January or possibly February if Andy is accepted into BYU's program for Chaplains. When he is accepted, we will be contacting the Navy and enlisting in the Chaplain Candidate Program. Afterwhich, we will be heading off to school where Andy will work for a little over 2 years to complete 72 credit hours, which are required by the military in order to become a Chaplain.

We had the opportunity to attend a LDS Chaplain seminar over the weekend of October conference. It was such a wonderful and inspiring experience. We learned so much and were blessed with the feeling that we were doing the right thing for our family.

Well, I've got lots to do and not nearly enough time to do it in. I'll try to keep this more updated but, you know how it goes :)
