please allow me to introduce
the newest member of the mccoy family
~
we are now a family of six
.
darek
amberli
atticus
beckett
BOB
and
sienna la blanca
...
yep - we made the plunge. isn't she a beauty? let me tell you a little secret
about how my life is already easier with this little number driving us from place to place.
this is it folks - i'm fully embracing suburbian motherhood.
and the best is yet to come!
.
plus - in equally exciting news - we had our first visitors today! my sister and niece were "in the area" (namely, mesquite for her hub's work) and came down for the day! how about them apples, eh? let me tell you folks, this is why we moved across the country - family! it was fabulous and wonderful and made me so happy and maybe i haven't stopped smiling about it! plus they brought us real live, honest to goodness salt water taffy. we're not talking about the icky goo thrown out of parades - we're talking authentic, yummy, delicious, sticks-to-att's-fingers-and-makes-a-mess taffy! mmm!
...
hmm...still homeless
hopefully happier news on that front to come!

Wow! Congratulations on the minivan purchase! It's so exciting. I can't wait to get a car like that and for the suburbs. I also can't wait to visit you (soon!). Good luck with the house-hunting!

Just checked in to see . . . what the what?! You dudes had another baby and moved to Las Vegas? No way! Congratulations on your new baby--your kids are adorable. I work in Vegas at least once a month and sometimes Rachel comes with. We'd love to see you guys some day. Or, let us know if you're ever in LA.
Hope you find a place to live. Welcome back to the West.

Congrats...the move, the van, the visitors! Fun that Kirst got to come down. And the minivan...aren't they so easy with kids??? Crazy, huh. My mom ran into your mom yesterday and she said your mom was so happy you moved back this way. Maybe we can "be in the area" sometime and see you now that you're closer!
