Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Well, our trip to Louisiana was really nice - we couldn't believe the 80 degree weather! Jude's job interviews went well. He had one in Houston, 2 in Lafayette, and one in Baton Rouge.  Everyone was very helpful and very complimentary of his work. Now we just have to wait and see if a position opens up.  Please pray that something will open up soon. We've also had three people come to see the house in the last 6 days, so hopefully we continue to get more traffic. Joan is doing well and is looking forward to the next time she can visit family. Enjoy the few photos of Joan.

Supernova Lova

I took Alisha to a themed suite in a nearby town for Valentines day because she had been seeing commercials for it for two years. The rooms were so cheesy that we just couldn't pass up this opportunity. Around the same time we were invited by some friends to submit a short film for their amateur film festival. So we wrote a cheesy love song full of space metaphors and filmed the music video at this suite. Here is the video - we won best overall, too!

Joan is almost 10 months!

So much has been going on this last month.  Jude has begun his job search for something closer to home, so please keep that in your prayers.  He has some interviews already scheduled and we hope things work out!  We've also put our house up for sale and hope to have a buyer by the summer.  

Joan loves coming to work with me at the Catholic Student Center at ISU and loves playing with "Gemma" their resident dog.  She's babbling tons and making cute little kissing noises all the time.  Her top teeth should be in any day now - we can tell by her crankiness! We've also seen her stand by herself for a few seconds, but I'm not quite ready to see my little girl walk yet...

I decided I wanted to become a Children's Book Author.  I had my first story "Ruby Makes-Do" done, but then learned that rhyming stories don't really have a great shot unless they're flawless.  So it either needs a lot more work on its specific rhythm and beat count, or I've got to try and re-write it in prose.  I'll let you all know when I've got some progress.  Well, as always, enjoy the videos and photos.  There's a lot, so pace yourself!
