Settled down...a little...

I am still alive... We have been sooo busy the last few weeks! We finally got our things from the states. A week later than they said. But it's all good! Slowly we are getting everything unpacked and organized. Our living room is pretty much done as well as the kitchen. The dining room table is packed full of things with no places. And our room is packed with at least 10 more boxes! Briahna's room is farely clean and done, just need to put all her clothes away. The movers broke her very expensive changing table, so we will be waiting for a new one eventually. I was pretty mad because it was broke on purpose. You can tell they snapped itin half to get it to fit in the packing box. Ah! But we are sure glad to have our things!

The picture of Briahna (Granny Bri) was yesterday (Aug. 30). I tried 3 times to get it to flip and keeps uploading it sideways. She loves carrying purses!

^This is Briahna's cardboard house we made from left over boxes!! Ah she loves it, exept its breaking by the window. As tuan says, we have plenty of timber from the rest of our boxes!

Well sadly, our little Huyndai went to the garbage. The transmission went out after only 2 weeks of having! Some crooks sold it to us!
So we are in the process of getting a new car! Yay! Ill post a pic later and suprise ya! ha!

The stinky German deoderant--->

I got a job!!!! Im going to wait tables at Chillis! Ya! I was offered a few other jobs but this one paid the most plus Tips.. so I HAD to take this one..who wouldn't!

I am still hoping to get a better job for what I am actually going to school for. Speaking of that, I am takin an online class this semester and will take onemore next semester and graduate. Than hopefully start up again in the fall of 09 for Health Administration! But we will see how that goes.

Well what else can i say? We went out to eat at this suuper good mexican place last night. But it was soo expensive! (cuz the dollar is so weak on the dollar) But it was nice to get out! Well i hope every one is doing well! miss all of you! have a good Labor day weekend!

Oh p.S. She hasn't had a bottle for 3 days... it is going well but still cries! Any ideas on how to get her to nap without a bottle or something?!

Well I finally put a few pictures on here!

These first 2 pictures are of our hotel when we first got here. And the second is the house we stayed in, until we got our own house. But we only got the basement of this house!

We have still been adjusting to Germany. We got some more house-hold things, like our fridge and washer & dryer. The rest of our household things will be here on Friday! I am soo excited to sleep in my own bed! We have been sleeping on an air bed. Yea, not comfortable! We still need to get a large room rug for our floor. Everything is tile here, and not soft if Bri hits her head!!

Today, I had my first doctor appointment today! Just for my face. The climate here is doing crazy things to my face! But it is all ood. A friend gave us a ride to the appointment, than invited us to the MOPS (mother of pre-schoolers) picninc at the park. Briahna had a blast! She taught herself to go down the slide (on her tummy of course) But it was too cute! We came back and took a LONG nap to catch up on some ZZZ's. I am going to take my driver's test this week too. (I was too tired to go last week! ha)

Well I hope everything is going well with everyone! Miss all of you! Hope to put some more exciting news up soon! Or at least some new pictures!

Here are 2 pictures of Briahna, being her busy silly self! Love her! I will try to get more up soon!

We are STILL alive...

Sorry it has been soo long since I posted anything! We finally moved into our house and got internet! I am glad to be in our house! We are still waiting to get most of our things from our other house! They should be here the 22nd!

We haven't done too much exciting since we have been here. Mostly been settling in. Tuan got his German liscence and we got a car. I take my test tomorrow! So hope to pass that one! We went out last weekend to Chili's to celebrate him passing his test. It was good. Something new and a way to get out of the house. I have been trying to get to the gym a couple times a week and go on walks. We live in a small village off post. There are alot of shops and things here. Hopefully this weekend, we will get a chance to go explore! We went a tour 2 weeks ago. We learned how to ride the trains here and to order at German restaruants. It was fun, but the Euro rate makes it NOT fun!

I need to get a new battery for my camera, once I do that, I will take more pictures!! And post some new ones!

Briahna is adjusting well. She is doing better on the bottle. Now it's only water in there and she is drinkin from sippys much better. Except at night...Usually needs a bottle to sleep! She is also growing some back teeth and seems to be in alot of pain lately! So sad! But otherthan that, she is wonderful! She enjoys playing with all her toys, and all of ours! ha!

Hope everyone is doing well. Will post more intersting things soon! Love and Miss everyonE!
