Week 13 of 52 weeks in Pictures!

This past week we had a pretty easy week around here. On Monday, we had to say bye to Oma and send her back to CO. :(  We really enjoyed our time with her, and she enjoyed her trip up here! Jacob and I had a few playdates with our friends, and then on Saturday Hans, Jacob and I all packed up in the van and had a day trip to Seward, AK!

Seward is about a 2 hour drive south of Anchorage and is a really cute town. In the summer time it is a big destination for people wanting to go fishing. We wanted to go down to visit the Alaska Sealife Center. The Sealife center is a rehab facility for sea creatures. They usually have seals and sea-lions to see as well as other fish. So we headed down for a fun family day!

This is how our day on the road started:
Yep that is fog....but we were driving right along the coast (the only way to drive to Seward), so it isn't that unusual. Thankfully the weather got better about 45 minutes into our drive when we reached Girdwood, AK.

Thankfully our weather stayed this way for most of the remainder of the trip!

 Touching star-fish and other neat things!

 Sleeping Lady Mountain

On Hans job search....he leaves on Wednesday night to fly to South Dakota for a in-person interview with a company! This will be his 3rd interview with this company!!! He also has a phone interview scheduled with another company for this week!!! I am so excited that we may be close to knowing where we will be moving to!

Week 12 of 52 weeks in pictures!

We had a busy week this past week in our house. Oma was up visiting us from Colorado for the week, and we also had Jacob's 2nd birthday party! We choose to have it a month early so that Oma could be here for it, and because we hope to be either packing come Jacob's birthday next month or maybe even be moving! Hans goes for a 3rd interview next week with a company in South Dakota!!!

Ok onto the good stuff....the pictures :) I took a ton of pictures of Jacob's party, but will not post them all. Here are a few from the day!
Jacob loved running around with the balloons!

Week 11 of 52 weeks in Pictures

Hi everyone!! It has been crazy around here, but that is the norm these days. We are still trying to get better, and let me tell you I am so over being sick. I am going to the ENT on Friday to see what he says and hopefully can make me all better.

Oma came to visit!! She flew in on Friday and will be here until next week Monday. We are really enjoying our time with her.

Today I took Jacob to get his 2yr / Easter pictures done, and let me tell you they are cute! We are also having Jacob's birthday party this weekend so that Oma can be at it while she is here.

Oh I almost forgot to mention, Hans will be flying to South Dakota for a 3rd interview with a company at the end of the month!!! He has to wait until then because the manager of the department is on vacation for this week and next. He is really excited and we are keeping our fingers crossed that this is the job for him and that we will be moving soon. :) 

Now onto some pictures.....

Week 10 of 52 weeks in pictures!

What a week we have had here.....unfortunately we are still all sick and trying like mad to get better. I took Jacob back to the doctor on Friday and he has double ear infections again. So onto another round of antibiotics.  I am still not better, but the doctors can't figure out what exactly I have, so I am just suffering through and crossing my fingers that I am getting better. Now poor Hans started to feel sick Thursday night and has spent his weekend sick.

On Thursday, our friend Megan and her mom left to drive from Anchorage to North Dakota. :( Megan's husband and dad did the drive the week before with a U-Haul full of all their stuff. Megan and her mom made it there today. On Wednesday evening, Megan came over to say goodbye :( :( :( I took a bunch of pictures of her and Jacob as she was "Auntie Megan" him.

Hans job search: Hans received a call from the company in South Dakota that he interviewed with back in January. Apparently they have had another position open up can called to see if he was interested in interviewing for it! He had a skype interview a week ago Wednesday and they called him back Friday and want him to come to South Dakota for an in person interview!! He will  be talking to them tomorrow to set up when that will be!!!! I am keeping my fingers crossed that we will know something soon!!!

This week we don't have much coming up, except Hans' mom is coming later Friday night!!!! She will be staying up here for 10 days!! I am so excited to see Diane and for Jacob to have some Oma time!

I almost forgot to tell you all this....but I pulled out Jacob's potty chair and he loves to sit on it!!! They have been putting him on the potty at daycare, so I figured that I would do so here at home as well! He has not yet done anything in the potty, but sure loves sitting on it!
