With all the craziness of preparing to move on Monday, and Will just getting back in town, it was important to both Will and I that Catelyn had a day especially for her to celebrate her birthday. She understands this year what is going on, and we wanted to make sure she felt special. What a fun day it was! We are having a princess party for her when things calm down, but today we had a family party at Chuck-e-Cheese. It was great! She was in heaven with all the rides, play areas, games, pizza and a prize to redeem at the end of it all. After we left the resteraunt we came back home and blew out candles on a cookie cake and opened presents. She had such a great time. Later in the evening, some friends of ours threw a going away party for us, but it happened to be at Catelyn's best buddy's house which made for a perfect ending for our birthday girl. How quickly these four years have gone, and what a blessing she is and continues to be! I am so thankful for everything she brings to our lives. Happy 4th Birthday Catelyn! We love you very much!

Early Monday morning, the movers will be here to take our things from Jonesboro, Arkansas (home of the ASU Red Wolves) to Bowling Green, Kentucky (home of the WKU Hilltoppers). Will accepted a position at Western Kentucky University where he will be doing compliance in their athletic department. I'm really excited about the move and the next chapter in this crazy life of ours. However, I will definitely miss some super sweet people who have loved on us while being here in Jonesboro. We have been shown more kindness and care than I ever could have imagined, and for that I am so grateful. Thank heavens for cell phones, text, email, facebook and blogs, or I don't know what I would do. So...without further ado, KY here we come!!!

May 10th, my baby boy turned one! I still can't get over how fast it went by. He is such a sweet little guy and so easy going. We went in for his 12 month check up, and he weighs 23.6 pounds (50th percentile) and is 31 inches long (85th percentile) and is doing great. He is still crawling and will walk only when holding someone's hand or a chair. He is definitely more cautious then Catelyn, which is just fine. He says moma and dada and is really into throwing his food off of his tray, which makes me a little crazy. :) I'm so proud of my little boy! Happy 1st Birthday Tripp!
