Hello long lost friends !!!! I've been gone off the blog scene for months now sorry :( Well the Williams are all moved into the new house and loving it more than ever. We are getting ready to landscape the backyard as soon as the weather gets nice enough to get a tractor in the back without it sinking into the mud :) We have an entire unit of lumber just sitting in our garage waitng to be a fence when it grows up :) Right now it's just in the way, but it has to stop raining soon right? lol oh yeah i forgot this is oregon!!!
So I know it's been like forever since I've posted anything, but we've been keeping pretty busy around here. As most of you all know, we've been building a new house! I'ts almost done, our move in date is June 5th so not long now. I've actually got off my dead but and put some pictures up for you all to check out the progress. We're all really excited to move in! We will try to have a house warming party this summer and you can all come see it and help us eat some bbq! Until then enjoy the pics! This is the empty lot, they just started framing out the foundation. laying out the frame for the foundation

Hello dear friends, Sorry I kinda fell off the face of the earth for a while there! I have been sooo busy with work (man it feels really really nice to say that word, work, ) I haven't even had time to do laundry or dishes for like two months, thank god Steve has been helping me out on that one! I have been working at Davita Dialysis for about 8 weeks now and I love it!!! I'm working 5am - 6pm so getting up at 4am and getting home around 6:30pm, it leaves little time for a social life! I'm starting to go thru withdrawls from not spending much time with my kids. They are growing so fast I can't believe my little girl is 8yrs old now and in the 3rd grade! My baby is 6 and 1/2 ! We are all doing awesome right now! We have been truly blessed this year. Me with my new job and the kids are doing great at school and making lots of new friends and Steve has just got a promotion at his job too. Steve is now an inspector for Douglas County Public Works Engineering Dept. and he is loving it. We will hopefully be starting construction on our new house in a couple weeks. We are living in the tiniest rental ever right now and it's getting tight. The kids are fighting every night cause they are sharing a room right now. They keep saying they can't wait to have their own rooms like in our old house, but they were always in each others rooms anyways so I think it will be the same at the new house. I'll just be happy to have a bathroom that I don't have to share with the kids cause they are slobs, but I'm a bigger slob and that many slobs in one bathroom is a disaster! Well guys I'm not getting any work done around the house sitting here on the computer so I gotta get crackin. I have the busiest weekend ever. The kids are going to Washington with my parents so I've gotta wash and pack their clothes, Steve is having knee surgery tomorrow so I've gotta get his crutches and post op supplies ready, I'm having oral surgery on Saturday so I've gotta get laundry and dishes all done cause I'm not doin it doped up on pain pills :) Well peeps I'll try to keep up on this blog a little better and give you an update on the crazy Williams !!!
Ok so I finally found the cord to downlowd my pictures from the camera to the computer :)
Here are a couple pictures of the kids in their scary halloween costumes. Not my first choice for Jo to dress like a vampire or P-dog to dress like the winged reaper, but anyone with kids knows the insanity of the dreaded halloween isle at walmart ! We looked at darth vadar and cute superheroes and little princess and fairies but after 2 hours in the roseburg walmart I wanted to just shoot myself and in my moment of extreme weakness I surrendered. It was a fun night all the same. The kids got to trick or treat with their cousin Rilee.
My mom had a costume party halloween night and let me tell you, I'm not big on grown ups dressing up and getting their drink on, but it turned out to be alot of fun :) My parents bought a wii for the kids to play when they stay the night so of course we all had to try it out. There is nothing worse than getting your but kicked by your 6 and 7 year old children. I wans't drinking so that made it even more of a kick in the but !!! Even with all the costumes and the drinking and the serious but kicking, We all had sooo much fun :)
I'm sooo happy to report that I've got a new job :) YAY YAY YAY!!! I'll be working at Davita Dialysis as a tech. I'm kinda nervous cause I've never stuck needles into people before or done any patient monitoring but they said they will train me to do it all :) I'm supposed to start sometime next week. I'll be working 3-4 days a week on 12 hour shifts so that will take some getting used to as well. They say I'll be hooking people up to the dialysis machines, checking vitals, and then unhooking them. I can't wait to get started :) And I get to wear cute scrubs :)
Hey friends, Well it's been a crazy week ! As you all know I'm now selling Avon and thanks to those of you who ordered it is greatly appreciated :) My husband Steve plays softball on a mixed league, and this last weekend he was hit by the ball in the mouth. Now if you know Steve at all then you know he's a perfectionist and a nag! When I played ball he would always yell at me to use two hands when catching the ball (see where this is going people) When I played infield he said make sure you spread your legs, squat down, and get your glove in the dirt. Your non glove hand should be over your glove to protect your face. If you always do this you will never get hit in the face with the ball ! Well I guess he means do as i say and not as i do! In his defense this ball was freakin movin!!! line drive to short stop one hop right in front of him and he couldn't get his glove up fast enough. The ball hit him in the mouth and I tell you the sound it made when it hit his face was like the sound the ball makes comming off the bat ! I was sitting in the bleachers and I could hear the ball hit so loud i thought he was going down. At first I thought it hit his nose but when he pulled his hands away from his face you could see lips galore ! He looked like Bubbah from Forest Gump ! The swelling has gone down almost all the way now but seriously you don't know how much you miss kissing your man until his lips are outta action for a whole week!!! I'm having kissing withdrawls :( Glad to say things are pretty normal other than the fat lip. The kids are looking forward to Halloween. We are going to a big costume party at my moms property so that should be fun :) So I'm sending in a new Avon order Wednesday the 29th at noon so let me know if you need to order :)

I will be submitting my order wednesday night by midnight, so email me your orders or check out my online store www.youravon.com/faithwilliams or call me 541-733-7233 !
