Emily's birthday party

We are entering our 4th week out of our house and being in hotels and family's homes. Its really starting to wear on me. Mostly its Jax. Having his supplies scattered everywhere, and no place to do his cares without breaking my back.
Friday we meet with a financial guy about a home loan. I'm just worried that our credit still isn't high enough. Its amazing how fast your credit is hit, but how slow they are to rebuild it. Our big financial breakdown was in Jax first year, thats almost 6 years ago. A month ago Ray's credit was barely too low. We are hoping that with now no bills, and open credit cards, that our debt to credit will change and his score will automatically go up. I'm telling you, opening credit cards was the biggest thing that raised his score. We never had cards before, and these are low limits, but its credit on your score, and it helps big time! Its a shame they look at a single score, instead of the fact that we have zero bills now, and a huge chunk of money to put down on a house. Fingers crossed we can get our loan, I'm ready to start looking for houses NOW!

Last Thursday we went to our sweet Emily's birthday party. I'm so excited that now we live so close to them that we can get together often. They are good friends of ours!
Look at all these gorgeous kido's

This is sweet Gracie, she loved Jax. She kept checking him out!

We actually found something she won't eat...broccoli!

The gorgeous cake

LinkA DS friend needs your help. Her son is getting glasses, and she needs advice on what kind to get him. Please click on this link and help her if you have experience in this area!

Oh, and we go to a Halloween party at Disneyland on Friday. I'm going to reveal Jax and Arina's costumes Saturday morning in the pictures. So if you haven't voted, do it now!

Were so sad to miss Emily's party. Looked like it was amazing and the cake, wow!

Loved all the pictures on the post below ... that Arina, she is something else, isn't she? Her faces kill me!

Enjoy Disneyland. We have never been at Halloween, we really, really should go.

I am so jealous that you got to spend a day with so many special kiddos! I bet it was a blessed day!

I hope you are able to get a home of your own soon! It must be difficult no being settled yet.

Love all the pics! Can't wait to see your cuties in their long awaited costumes! :)
