We have finally succumbed!

I have enjoyed reading our many friends blogs for years now, and since I update our website about once a year, I have finally decided to join the blogging fun and have one of our own. Denise (my friend up in Michigan) will be so happy to get to read about us and have NEW info online. When my friend Kendra signed up this week, I made a decision that I too would join the bloggers, instead of the lurkers that just read everyone else's!

For a family update, here goes:
Eric is currently finishing up classes to get certified to teach 6-12th grade band in the state of Texas. He took his content exam on Saturday the 9th, and now we are praying for job interviews to start happening. He has been teaching trombone, baritone and tuba lessons over the past year in three school districts around our neighborhood. He really enjoys the kids, and I really enjoy his flexibility!

I am currently with ConocoPhillips, helping get their SOX documentation in order for our internal and external audits coming up. I help with settlements and A/R within the Natural Gas Marketing Accoutning group. I started there April 1st, 2004, and love it. I have met some GREAT friends there, and it is a great company to work for.

We have two dogs, Gweny and Riley, both mutts. Gweny we have had will be 5 years in November. It will be 1 year of having Riley in November as well. Gweny will be 5 in September, and Riley will be 1 in September. Gweny is white with brown spots, and Riley is a pretty brindle color. We have been told that Gweny (short for Gwenyvere!) is part brittany spaniel, or collie. Riley is part australian shepherd. Pictures will come shortly.

Eric and I built a house in September of 2004, just west of Houston. It is in Lakemont Subdivision, which is considered Richmond. We are across the street from Katy. We have a 2 story, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, cul-de-sac lot and we LOVE it. Our most recent attemps at 'decorating' have been outside in the backyard. It's been 2 weeks coming, and we're still not through with the landscaping! We love our game room, and bedrooms, and on to the bigger news.....

We are trying to start turning that 3rd bedroom into a baby nursery! We are trying to start a family in the near future, and we couldn't be more excited about it! We have already started reading the books (ok, I've read 1.5 already and Eric has read about 2 pages in his!). I have some doctor appointments coming up so that I can figure out which one I'd like to go to.

Well, I guess that's enough for now. Feel free to comment and we will be writing more later! :)
