Apparently she thinks there should be a cup holder...
We are also converting all of our cleaning supplies to an environmentally friendly product...
And, aside from using the energy smart light bulbs, not drinking bottled water, and using reusable cloth bags at the grocery store...we haven't ventured any further.

The surgery went better than Dr. Miller expected, although, we will be heading back out to UCLA at least once more for some fine tuning. Jae continues to work super hard at physical therapy every day. I've attached a link to a video describing the program and it's first servicemember they treated.
As you can see, there are some amazing people out there, and we cannot thank these indviduals enough. They are literally CHANGING people's lives. Thank you Mr. Katz, Dr. Miller, and everyone involved.
We were able to see some of the most famous sites in Los Angeles while we were out there...thanks to our amazing sponsor family, the Simons. We got to see the infamous Hollywood sign, the Kodak Theatre (where they hold the Oscars), Muscle Beach at Venice Beach, Malibu, Rodeo Drive, Santa Monica, and the list goes on. We had a lot of fun...
We also got to visit the Getty Musuem, which is nestled into the top of a mountain overlooking Los Angeles. The view was absolutely amazing! Addison got to play in the Family Room, where there were a handful of things that she could play with relating to art at the museum.
Addie LOVES the "wa-wa"
We just kept saying..."How can there be such beautiful mountains, beautiful beaches, and a fun city...all within 20 minutes of eachother?"
Objects in mirror are closer than they appear!
Addison spent a little while rebuilding some architecture...
And finished off the afternoon in a comfy antique bed with the spanish version of "Goodnight Moon"!

So, needless to say, we needed a little bit of time to think about it...a few days to "try it on" (as Jae's mom would say). The next week, Sierra flew back out to Huntsville, and put a contract on the house. She was able to pick EVERYTHING in the house, from paint, to trim, to brick...the whole nine yards. The house is set to close on October 17th. We are SOOO excited! There is not a day that goes by that we don't talk about how excited and ready we are to head to Alabama.
Here are a few pictures...
The lot we bought...home sweet home at 3113 Mossy Oak!!!
Jae and I had a lot of fun, watching Addison play and interact (and we got to have a few adult conversations with people other than eachother!) Funny how life changes...parties used to consist of much different activities...and the more we experience, the more we are realizing...THIS is the best kind of party!
Here are a few pictures from the "fiesta"...
Helping the magician to blow GIANT bubbles
Just making sure there isn't a hole in the bag...
Bye, Trey-Trey...Happy 3rd Birthday!
