crazy beautiful life

Hello there,

Well life is officially CRAZY!!!! We are expecting baby #2 in late July. I am working part time as is JEremiah who is also going to school full time. Brendon is growing and growing and is just the most adorable boy ever. I love my life, but it is so crazy right now!

Papa in Town

Well papa is in town and brendon is having a ball. There is someone to follow him around all over creation! As a parent we try to put kids onto our schedule and run all over the place, but as a grandparent, you can get onto the kids schedule and just let them walk at their own pace, stop and pick up rocks and examine all things colorful! It is such a joy to watch Papa and Brendon hang out together.

Things, They are a changin'

Well life never sits still very long and for us that seems to be especially true! We have decided to close the store. We are liquidating everything trying to at least make back the money we put into it. We are praying hard to work out our lease issues. God is in the business of miracles and that is what we are praying for at the moment. Smooth transitions, so we can get back to California, where God really wants us to be! Brendon needs to know his grandparents, we feel that this is very important, so we are coming home to California. Jeremiah is going back to school to get his degree and find a job he loves (and is good at). If you are in the business of praying, add us to your list please!

Hiking at Silver Jack

Monday we decided to do a family day and get out of town a little. We drove up to Silver Jack Resevoir which is just beautiful. Brendon had a great time walking on the trails and picking up rocks. It was a great family day. Brendon posing on the fence

For reference I don't recomend taking a toddler to a canyon... all they want to do is run around and there is about a 2000 foot drop if they fall. This is when toddler leashes are a GREAT thing.

Moving along

Well life seems to be getting into a bit of a routine ... and I am begining to hate routine! I guess I am finding I like the surprizes that come through the day, both good and bad. Jeremiah is now working full time at Office Depot (for a steady income) and I work at the store full time. Brendon is either with me or with his "intown grandparents". He has a lot more fun with them, since they let him run around outside and play!
I was given a couple hours last week to go do whatever I wanted, during the day, without the boy.... and I cried because I could not think of anything I wanted to do. I am not used to not working or having the boy with me... I guess I need to rediscover things that I (just Annsley) like to do!
Well that is all my complaining for the moment. Life is good, I am just restless and want it all right now... but in God's timing it will all come together, I am sure.

Hello Again

Well it has been a while, not that there hasn't been anything to write, just no real desire to write it all down. We have been busy here at the Hiles house. We spent a week in California, showing Brendon off and having a good time. Brendon is getting teeth #3 & 4 (the top two) the boy seems to teeth in two's... painful! Makes for a cranky baby. He has also started walking and is quite good at it. It is really cute! Jeremiah got hired at Office Depot (a job to bring in some cash)... if you are a praying person, please include us and our store in those prayers.... we are doing all right, but could do much better!

Anyway, we keep getting surprize visitors and just LOVE it!

hey, howdy, hi

Well I am still here, I haven't gone anywhere, just to tired to type it seems. Anyway, we had a good but quick visit to California at the begining of June. One week is just to short for a real vacation. Brendon did great on the flights, we are so proud of him. He has also started walking since then... it is still weird to see him come walking around the corner instead of crawling.
