Time to catch everyone up........

Well It's Summer in Arizona and obviously HOT but still no humidity and suprisingly tolerable (yes even at 110 degrees). We've been very busy doing a whole lot of nothing it seems. We have Rachel (my step-daughter) half the time, but it seems like it's more than that which is OK with both Chris and I because we like it that way. Olivia and Rachel have each other to play with...well really it's more like cause trouble and make messes with but at least they have fun together doing it. They are pretty much inseparable minus a few sibling squabbles throughout the day.
 Chris has been learning to tattoo. He's doing so well! Of course I have been practice skin a few times but I am pleased with the way it has all turned out. A lot of our friends have come over and been practice skin too and we have even made new acquaintances in the process. So all in all that has been pretty cool. He and I team up doing it too. I do the art/stencil/placement part and he does the dropping ink part. It's actually quite fun but my house get's pretty busy sometimes and then I feel like a tornado has swept through my living area and the thought of putting everything back makes me cringe. Luckily I find moments to do it and on nights like tonight, it looks fantastic (thank God).
***sidenote - the picture of the fore arm with the lotus flowers and vines is just the outline but I put that sucker together myself. and free-handed the vines on his arm. it is SICK!***

We are hoping to move into a new house in August *crosses fingers*. We simply can't live in our little 2 bedroom for much longer... not with 2 adults, 2 kids, 2 dogs, a 55 and a 10 gallon fish tank, and frequent company. There's just no way. I feel like I have to come up with super creative places to put things lol and I know I shouldn't have to do that. So I have been in touch with a realtor and hopefully we can get something bigger for less than we are paying now :D

Oh goodness..... I'm sure there's more but I'm drawing a blank.

I'm working for Primerica and I love it. It's been a slow start trying to remember all the information and get a client base but I have faith that I will get there. Chris is looking for a new job too but we're having a hard time finding a place that's hiring cooks. He'll be back in school in the fall so that will be nice as he's working towards his Business degree and his Hotel/Restaurant Management degree.

All in all everything is going well and we are having a great time doing tons of stuff and nothing at all.

To Catch you up here are some pictures of the girls... enjoy! :D
