A long overdue post

i'm so sorry for the lack of posts.  i just can't seem to keep up with hubby, kids, unpacking, laundry, and cleaning house, let alone blogging!  the days just seem to run together.  i've taken a ton of photos, but will try to share just a few for now.  we're in our own place again and that is so nice.  it seems like the unpacking is never-ending despite the fact we really do not own much (we fit all of our belongings in a 5x9 uhaul trailer, the car trunk, and the back of a jimmy when moving back to michigan).  we've been beyond blessed by family, friends and strangers alike.  they've given us support, housewarming gifts, furniture and lots of love.  it's amazing, really. 

jonathan is keeping very busy.  he's working now for a kroger fuel center and looking for something part-time as well.  he is also still taking classes online toward his bachelor's degree and taking some real estate courses toward his real estate license.  plus being a husband, father and doing a lot around our place.  i'm so proud of him and all his hard work!

the girls are busy busy busy.  enjoying having a room they don't have to share with daddy and mama.  leila is now sleeping in a big girl bed (read: twin bed).  she seems to be doing well with that.  haven't really gotten bedtime down quite right yet.  it seems to take libbs and leila close to an hour to finally lay quietly in bed until they go to sleep (they are jumping on the beds, getting out of bed, playing with the curtains, etc...).  any tips are welcome!  nadia is 6 months old now...i can hardly believe it!  oh there are so many things i could say about the girls...but for now i'll share some pictures.

ok, if you made it this far...thanks!  i know there are so many pictures, but it's hard to pick a few when it's been so long since i've posted.  from top to bottom, thise pictures go from most recent to from the time i last posted.  i hope to try to squeeze in a little time to post more often :).
