A Double Whammy!

Summer zoomed by and it's already time to sign another contract! 
Which we did TODAY!

For the duration of the 2012-2013 basketball season we will be playing in France in a cute town in the northwestern Brittany region right on the English Channel called SAINT BRIEUC.

It's an old town established during the 5th century.
A few pictures we snatched off the internet.

 We love that it's got a beautiful beach and coastal area but also has a nice size inner city for shopping and walking around.
This sweet secondary Hogwarts school is only 15 minutes away. 
This is where we will be for Halloween.

We are super super super thrilled to be joining the team mainly for 3 reasons. 
Whose colors are most likely baby blue and yellow (heck yeah)

1. We are a 3 hour train ride to PARIS...meaning also Disneyland.
Disneyland for Christmas IN PARIS...anyone? anyone?
2. We will be living on the coast. But we hear it also snows.
Something Chris has wanted to do since serving his LDS mission on the Oregon coast. He lived on a beach house for almost half his mission, literally. And we all should know how much I LOVE snow.
3. The team is really happy to have us and Chris will be the only American which makes us thrilled. It will be fun to be the only Americans on the team.

We are excited to adjust to a billion new changes in our lives.
Basically think about any change that might occur in someones life and we will most likely be experiencing it you might think not but once you learn...

we are having another baby
you might think otherwise.
 We know how it happened but we don't REALLY know how it happened
Both our babies so far have knock us out of our socks by surprise.
We took 3 pregnancy test didn't believe them so we went and had another one at my Dr. office and sure enough I am about 10 weeks along.
Taimi is ecstatic she wants a baby brudder and sister
Ready or not baby Miles #2 is on it's way most likely making a debut in early Feb.
developing perfectly and making me sicker than sick.

And yes you read it right we are planning on having the baby in France
 this blog just got a whole lot more interesting ;)
