Happy Easter

Well 2011 Easter was great!  We started out the weekend by heading to the hospital to see the newest addition to the Southall family. Congratulations Matt and Diane!! Luke William Southall was born Thursday night and boy is he adorable!  He is Sloan's newest boyfriend and soon to be day-time buddy.  Jackson will be leaving in June :( but Luke will be stepping in to fill his shoes. 

Friday evening we headed to the lake to see Heather, Ann Marie and Denny.  However, when we got there we were pleasantly surprised to see Dow!  Sloan was so happy to see her Aunt Heather and Uncle Dow.  For the most part, we relaxed, ate great food, but the best part was Sloan got to go on her first boat ride!  Boy did she love the water...not like she had much choice since her parents love the lake :)

Sunday morning we met my Dad and Kelly at church in The Woodlands.  We attempted to be 'those people' who bring their kids into church because we knew Sloan would be good.  However, as the preacher was going through the proper etiquette of church...turn your cell phones off, if your child starts being noisy take them outside...Sloan starts talking...LOUDLY lol!  So needless to say we ended up in the Family Viewing Room.  After church, we met my sister and grandparents at Guadalajara in the Woodlands...yum! I am already looking forward to next Easter when Sloan can go on an Easter Egg Hunt :)  I wish we could have seen my mom and her side of the family too though!  Happy Easter everyone!!

Walking in Orlando

Well, we just got back from Orlando with the family...all 13 of us!  We were there for 7 days, so it was long break from the 'real world.'  Tim and I were very nervous before leaving because we had gone to the doctor twice that week because Sloan had been running fever for 7 days.  Come to find out, she had an ear infection and sinus infection...not things you want to have before going on an airplane.  However, she was a TROOPER!  She did not even make a peep either way on the flights.  While we were there, Sloan took some more steps (12 at one time to be exact), went to Disney World, went swimming, rode on a paddle boat, stayed up REAL late :), and was held pretty much 24-7.  Here are some pics and a video from the vacay!!

The Cahills are moving!

So it is official...burbs here we come!  Tim and I decided it was time to move from the city to a more family oriented area - Augusta Pines!  We have been eyeing this lot for a while, but just recently sat down with the builder and signed to start of drawing/construction process.  We are hoping to break ground in early May which will put us with a tenative close date of the end of November-ish.  We have some of our best friends in Augusta Pines and the subdivision is closer to both of our parents.  We are in the process of getting our townhouse up for if any of you know people who are looking to move to the Cottage Grove area, send them our way :)  The following week that we signed, Tim and I ate chinese food the same day for lunch, but not with each other.  We called each other to tell our forutnes and I just had to put this pic in this post!
