IT'S ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We're baaaAAaaaAaAaAaAckkkkkkk-iiiiiiiishhhhhhhhhhhh ;) Ok so in my defense people, our computer died, we moved back to pullman than took off for utah shortly thereafter and then when we got back we moved again and school started. Something like's funny cause i'm not really on the computer that much but when you are without it you realize how much you depend upon it. I've missed you all. Brad just barely got our new computer up and running and it's a little after 10pm so i thought i'd post just to let you know i'll post pics as soon as i can figure out the computer.

We're all doing good besides a bit of sickness as of the moment. Brad's plugging on through school, but enjoying it. He was also recently called to be a gospel doctrine teacher (his secretly coveted calling...well not anymore i guess;) He's a great teacher and i love his deep and insightful knowledge of the gospel. He's amazing! Emma's the spitfire she's always been. We love that little girl, and we've started to work with her on french and spanish vocab and are impressed with her ability to pronounce the various words. She cracks us up with all the little things she says and does and tries our patience with her determined independence and strong opinions. She's a great help to me though and has become somewhat of a little mommy to Jude. They really are pals. Jude is a riot and i often hear people saying, "i want a jude!" Sorry suckers, he's MINE! Bwahahahaha! He really is a good baby and has such an easy going, always happy, loving nature. He's quite adventurous and has began picking up signs and select words pretty quickly. At his last check up he was in the 99th percentile for height. I can't wait to post pics so you can see more of this little man's BIG personality. As for me i'm kept pretty busy with the kids, my relief society calling and training for my half marathon in moscow next saturday. Ever since Aunt Sydney started doing marathons it inspired me and i decided one of my life goals would be to do one. (thanks Syd!) I'm hoping to do it in under 2 hours but i've been averaging 9:24 min miles for my long runs which i'm happy with too. we'll see.

Well that's a quick update for yall. All in all we're happy healthy and feeling SOOOOOO incredibly blessed with amazing friends and family and everything in between. We hope you are all doing equally well and apologize about our lack of keeping in touch. We may not be the greatest but we think and pray for you all daily. Hugs and kisses all around and pics and video to come soon!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
