Don't give up on me yet.......

Well here is another mass update on us since I average a new post about every month or so. Let's see.....after finding out about our baby boy in the middle of April we spent the last week of April up in Utah. I went up for BYU Womens Conference and dragged Matt and Abby up with me so I wouldn't have to be away from them for too long! May 14 Matt and I celebrated our five year anniversary, yup you read that right, FIVE years. It feels like just last summer was our wedding but here we are three different houses, three different states and one and a half babies later! We celebrated by going to "The Phantom of the Opera" down at the Venitian. It was a great show and I loved getting dressed up to go out on a date with my hubby. That next Sunday Matt had to go to Mississippi for a training so Abby and I drove back up to Utah with my Mom to stay for a week and a half. Of course we missed Matt but didn't mind the staying at Mom's house one bit!
Now we are finally back home and getting settled again. We had a great Memorial day weekend. Matt came home Thursday so we got the long four day weekend to play with him. It mainly consisted of doing things around the house and working in the back yard but that's fun to me. (not so much to Matt) Memorial day we started with a breakfast at the park with some friends, came home to take naps and back out to more friends house for a BBQ.
The last but not least of my news is that Matt was promoted to Staff Sergent today!! So he is officially Sergent Steele to all of you! I told him he will always be Airman Steel to me, no matter how long we are in the Air Force.
Well I think that's it in a nutshell. I will try to stay more updated so you don't have to read these long posts of our lives! Here are a few pictures from the last month or so. Enjoy!

Grandma and Grandpa Steele came down to visit for a few hours one day while they were in St. George

My baby doll with her baby dolls.

I found these two like this the day after Matt came home from Mississippi. I think they may have missed each other a little bit.

This is one of the bar stools I got at a hotel yard sale here on base for ten dollars. After a little work..........(scroll down)

They are now this! I think they look pretty good for ten dollars and a little work on our (ok maybe just Matts) part.

Jenni Jenni Jenni, I need to see you. I miss you. Those stools look great by the way, we just finished refinishing a dresser that we got for free that looked awful but I forgot to take before and after pics and I still need to decide on the hardware for the drawers but it is amazing what a little work and stain/paint can do. Come see me! Oh and congrats Sgt Steele

Nice to hear what is going on in the steel household. Abby looks so big, not a baby anymore! So crazy how big they all are now.

Impressive on the stools! I like! Tell Matt congrats too. Miss you always.

P.S. Want to come to Jamie's baby shower???

Oh my goodness Abbi is getting big! Have I ever told you I live vicariously through your blog sometimes so make sure you update it regularly.

Tell Matt congrats! I am so excited him the both of you. As soon as I stop spending money on racing (which will end soon) I want to come see you.
