Tag your'e it

The fun middle-name game!
1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
4. At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
Here goes:
This is the only time that i wish i had ashley's middle name.

D-Dance is my passion after my family and church.-easy one
A-my first name is spelled with an A-even though I am not a boy. got teased about that one the first day of Kindergarten.
N-Nightowl-I hate mornings and i don't think that will change anytime soon.
E-I love to EAT-no secret there-i think my whole family,even extended is the same. My family loves to eat.
T-Teamwork- I like the connection when you move together in unity towards a goal. I think with any new team-it's rocky at first but when you are finally insync, its awesome. My marriage is still rocky at times but we have our good moments too.
T-Terrible twos have now passed and I am wondering if Terrible Three's is another phase i was unaware of until recently......
E-Empty my house is almost empty-it needs occupants to refill it..

Okay so now i know you will be dissapointed-but i only know three other people who have blog-and two of them have a name that cooincides with a letter in my middle name-the same letter-so i guess the only person i can tag is arica since ashley has already done the tag thing. So arica you are tagged.

Moving

Okay so Joe was offered a great job out of state and we are excited to make the move and be there as soon as we can. We will be in an apartment until our house sells so we will have to downsize our living for a while-not as many toys to pick up is okay by me. This week we are finishing packing up all of our stuff and saying goodbye to friends. Whitney will start school next week-first day of school is the day after we move so things will get really crazy. I have to make sure to keep out her back pack with all the things i will need to register her with. Hopefully she gets am school-the school does full day but only for those who need it (It's more geared to catch up kids that are behind). Hopefully everything will run as smoothly as it possible can given the situation. Crossing fingers.

Garden Harvesting

I am so happy. The last few days I have been able to pick some tomatoes out of our garden. They took forever to ripen and my mouth has been watering all summer waiting for them to turn red. I also picked some corn today for dinner. We kind of went crazy with our garden this year and planted a good variety of things: Carrots, Cucumbers, Radishes(I hate radishes-but joe wanted to try them), Onions, Corn, Bell Peppers, Zucchini, Tomatoes, Cantaloupe and Watermelon and Strawberries. Everything has grown well, except the carrots are a bit small and ofcourse the strawberries won't produce until next year. Its been really nice not to have to buy much from the produce isle. (just salad and apples/bananas) Joe wants to grow twice as much next year. We always try something new each time and learn what not to do the next go around. Maybe our next house will have a few fruit trees and spot already reserved for a garden. I would love to have peaches or apricots. Wishful thinking but can you blame me-we are forever a greenthumb family now.
