John Got the JOB!!!!!!!

We found out this afternoon that John got the job and starts Monday! We are all so thankful for all your wonderful comments, thoughts, prayers, good job vibes and e-mails you have sent our way! It has been a very hard 4 years for us and now I think we are finally climbing our way out of the "bad" luck. John's interview was almost 2 hours long and he was asked many, many questions. When the interview was over they told him they would have to discuss the compensation package but they would definitely call him this afternoon. They only took a few hours to call him back and he will be making more with this job than the job he just got laid off from!! We are so excited and happy about this lovely news! We are treating ourselves out to dinner tonight-woooooohoooooo!!!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
