Complete Dining Set

After Josh (2) building the bench and me, frantically searching for a table and chairs, our dining set is complete, just in time for Thanksgiving. My friend Laura made the cushion... so this whole set is custom. I LOVE IT!!

Wind Storm Surprise

Those of you that live in the Tri-Cities are well aware of the CRAZY windstorm we had this week. It kept us up in the middle of the night the way it shook the house and blew EVERYTHING into our yard and up against the house. The next morning I woke up to get ready for work and let Brittany out and saw that our house was SURROUNDED by tumbleweeds.

A picture IS worth a thousand words....

This is what Josh gets to clean up! lol

Little By Little....

We are preparing to spend our first Thanksgiving dinner in our new home. So I have been searching high and low for a table to fit in our kitchen as well as seat plenty of people for the holidays. I have Josh (and Josh) build a storage bench for the kitchen and found a nice LARGE table on Craigslists. Now I am searching for chairs to go with it. I am so excited!

New Job!!

As some of you may already know, I was offered a couple of jobs out at the Hanford area. I took one position out there. I now work for Mission Support Alliance. I love it! I haven't been there too long, because the paperwork process took some time, but from the short time I have worked there, I can tell I am going to like it. I work with 45~ guys and no women. I could get used to this. :o)

I Have A Job!!

After a few months with only working at Victoria's Secret and several applications and interviews at Hanford I have been offered two jobs. One fell through and the other (which offered more money) worked out well! I passed background and drug test and I start August 9th!! Yay! I am so excited!! I hope that getting a job out in the area will turn things around for us in starting a new life as a married couple. :o)

Grandma Passed Away

Imogene Morrison Connerly, April 1917 – July 2010. At the age of 93, Imogene went home to be with her Lord and Savior. Her last few hours were spent at Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland, WA, where she was surrounded by family members as she slipped peacefully away.

Imogene was one of four children born to Clifford and Blanche Stone in Athena, OR. She was married to Thomas D. Morrison for 52 years. Most of their years together were in Pasco, WA where they raised four children. After being widowed, Imogene remarried to William Connerly, also of Pasco who had been previously widowed. They had enjoyed 10 years together when Bill passed away at the age of 93.

She is remembered fondly by her sister Lena Gibson, daughters Jerry Franklin, Joyce and husband Dennis Hay, June and husband Mike Detloff, and son Thomas and wife Wanda Morrison, step-daughter Mary and husband Chuck Green, step-sons William and wife Marcia Connerly, David and wife Chris Connerly, James and wife Norma Connerly. Imogene also has nine treasured grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren and great great grandchildren. There are countless friends and family members who were blessed to know her.

Imogene’s love for the Lord and children led her to teach Sunday School and work in Vacation Bible School for many years at First Baptist Church of Pasco, where she was a charter member. She had the privilege of introducing many souls to her Savior. Imogene enjoyed having friends, family and visiting missionaries in her home for visits and meals. She always had a genuine concern for the cares and well being of others. Imogene enjoyed Bible study and scripture memory, most recently committing Isaiah 53 to memory.

Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service for Imogene on Wednesday, July 14th at 11 am at First Baptist Church of Pasco, 1105 N. Road 36. The service will be followed by a luncheon at the church. The memorial service will be preceded by a private graveside service for the family.

We have a YARD!!

After months of living with a dirt lot we FINALLY got our sprinklers in and and our grass laid. Yay! We can finally enjoy the nice weather from our own backyard and have BBQs etc. I'm so excited!! A couple of the neighbors came over to enjoy the new backyard with us and see what have done, as they know.... dirt yards a HELL!! hehe
I have also had the chance to do some gardening in the past few weeks. I grew my herbs from seed and by placing them on my back patio, they are taking off, now that the backyard is almost done, I need to do some BBQing to use up some of those herbs.
I also planted my garden last weekend and it's AWESOME!! It's 15' x 5', I thought it would be more that enough room, but it turns out that its smaller than I thought. maybe next year I will make it bigger or grow less items. But for now I can't wait for everything to start growing so I can start EATING!!

New Addition to Our Family

It's been a long time since I wrote on here last but I have been super busy with work, the wedding, working on our yard and we have a new addition to our family. My sister, Cassie, gave birth to a healthy little baby boy on May 26th. His name is Daniel Rey Venegas, he was 7lbs 13oz and 19 3/4 inches long. Mom and baby are doing very well.
