Jerry and Julie made it safe and sound from Scotland to New Jersey. I think they are a tad bit dissapointed to go from the beautiful landscape of Scotland to well, New Jersey, but hey, we will show them a good time!
Here they are fresh out of the box taking a look at their new surroundings
Josh was taking a nap when they arrived, so Ally got to meet them first
Nala saying "Hi" (I think I heard tiny little "Help me's" but I can't be sure)
Josh up from his nap, getting aquainted with J & J
Josh kept throwing them across the room so I had to fasten them to his wrist to get a picture
I'll take and post more tomorrow! Hopefully we'll do some interesting stuff while they are here, so we won't bore everyone to death, lol!
Here are a few pics from today. Unforatunately I left J & J in the car when we were in the mall (bad mom), but managed to get a few pics. Tomorrow I will try to drive around and show the sites of South Orange, and then Saturday we will take Julie and Jerry to a pool party at our friends house!!! Should get some great pics there.
In the car on the way to the mall - safety first
A picture after we got out of the mall...as you can see, Julie and Jerry are in the air mid-fling
Jerry and Julie taking a look at the swag that was bought (actually it was swag for our friend's anniversary...going out for dinner tonight without kids, woot!!)
Playing with the kids before naptime
As promised, here are pics of Jerry and Julie at my friend's pool party on Saturday
Hanging out in the sandbox with Ally

Swinging with Josh
Jerry and Julie on my friend's awesome playset (can you spot them?)
I promise I will try to take some pictures of South Orange's sites tomorrow, and then I will shop J&J off to Kim's this week!! We are going away on Saturday for a week and a half, so I want to make sure they are shipped off before we do that.
Here are the final pics from Jerry and Julie's New Jersey adventure
Josh and I took some pics today with J&J in South Orange's town village while Ally was at camp...some of the pics don't have the J&J in them
A view from one side of the village
A view from the other side

SOPAC (South Orange Performing Arts Center) - they hold concerts and shows here, and there is also a movie theater inside
Jerry and Julie hanging on the door at SOPAC
We had a blast with Jerry and Julie, and I think they had fun too I'll clean 'em up, and tomorrow they will be on their way to Kim's!!!
Jerry and Julie arrived late last week. (I think they may have spent a night outside, Whoops!) Along with a cool bib for Caden! (Mom likes it best because of the cool pattern and that it catches all those Caden messes!)
Hmmmm, what's in here?
Oooh, new friends to throw around!!! YeeHaa!!
Hey Ma - look what I got!!!!
Look at THIS Ma!! (Thank you Josh and Erica!!!!)
Okay, enough with the bib, where are Jerry and Julie?
I will post again in a couple more days - don't get too excited though. Most of our pics will be around the house or for that exciting trip to the grocery store!!! LOL
Jerry and Julie arrived from Connecticut - Savannah was really intrigued by the box but wasn't terribly interested in the fireflies!
Warming up to them!
Playing with them the next day
Taking them for a spin on the ATV - in the living room!
They had a quiet week but a busier weekend - off to TiTi Rosita's wedding
Found our table but the gift table is way more interesting to Savannah
A pic with the bride (after having a few Sex on The Beaches)
Down to the Dr. Seuss Memorial and museum cafe for lunch after church!
Then to the Basketball Hall of Fame and Coldstone Creamery for dessert!
Our little skyline!!
If we make it to the fair tomorrow, we'll snap a few more pics, otherwise, it's off to the post office and headed to Canada (I think)!!
They are here!!
So far we havent done much...just got them out and lounged around the house. I promise it will get more exciting!
Checking out the package
Her gift from Savannah
Trying to get into the baggie
Lookin' good bugs, lookin' good!
Making sure everything is on the up and up with the passports.
She loved the boxes
She dragged them around the whole time I was getting dinner ready!
Reading to the bugs!
Being silly in her chair with J & J[IMG]
Such a cheeseball!
More tomorrow hopefully. They will all be at my mom's for the day. I'll make sure she gets some pics of them playing
Here are some of the pics:
Tanner's first meeting them
Tanner's new pasttime
And an update on us:
We doing ok. I have been having more nausea issues. Hard to think that I am 23 wks almost 24 wks already. Tanner got a new room and it is getting ready for the baby to take naps. Baby also is a surprise as we did not get enough of a view to say either way.
The girls also got a new bed. DH and I built them bunk beds and they turned out great and very strong. Schooling is going great. I love the new curriulum we have.

Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality.
Okay, so I am finally getting around to posting the rest of the pictures of J & J's trip to visit Dani!
Here they are in front of the bar before we went in to see the concert!
There run in with a "celebrity" he was the bass player for the one band we saw. haha. he looks thrilled to be holding them!
DH and Dani took them to the dollar store to get some pics taken with some canadian gear!
Playing geeky computer games with DSS Adam
Learning to play poker with Dani's Grandpa!!
It was my dad's birthday over Thanksgiving...they enjoyed the birthday cupcakes!
Here we go to yet another concert! This time in Toronto. They were very excited to see the big city and the CN Tower
Here I am with the bugs standing by the docks in Toronto. It was cold and windy!
They wanted one without me in it...lol.
We found a moose Joee!!! They became fast friends
This ladies is Poutine...and its very Canadian. They loved it!
And it wouldn't be a trip to visit me if we didn't have some chips!!! ALL DRESSED chips, YUM!! Lucky bugs!
Thats it. I did have a few more pics, but I guess DH thought I had already posted them and got rid of them on the camera.
