Flashlight Fun

Sydney and Abby's new game.

It's been awhile since we've posted anything.  We've had a busy last few months.  David had a job offer in DC so three weeks later we were on our way.  Currently we are staying with my family in Fredericksburg but will be moving into our own home next week.  We've been here for a total of three weeks.  David has started working and is getting the hang of commuting and DC life.  I started a part time job last week at a small community hospital in OB and Abby has been having lots of fun with our houseful of people.  Matthew Powney has been here for the past few weeks and we've also had a visit from my Aunt Sherry and cousin Jacey.  There's also the permanent residents of my parents house: mom, dad, Sharon, Allison, and Buddy.  Sydney and Buddy had a rough start, but I think they've finally developed a truce.  Here are a few recent pictures...

Our new home.  We'll move in next weekend.  I am really excited about it!  It's a neat house with a lot of character and plenty of room for visitors......

Abby and Jacey.  I was doing hospital orientation all last week, but Abby had fun going around with Grandma, Aunt Sherry (who she refered to as "nother grandma"), and Jacey.  They went and toured the Capital building, Mary Washington's house, and Mount Vernon.  

 Abby and I made cookies this morning.  She is wearing Auntie Sharon's apron and being a monkey as usual. :)

A few weekends ago we went to a park and down some trails.  There are lots of nature trails and creeks around here.  Abby ended up soaked head to toe, but had a lot of fun. 

We had a long drive from Tennessee to Virginia.  David and Syd drove a truck and towed a car.  Abby and I drove the Jetta.  She did really well (she usually doesn't ).  

My pictures are a bit out of order, but you get the point.  Hope you are all well.  Keep in touch!!!
