I didn't get to show pictures from Halloween Sydney my little Bat Girl and Rowyn my little Dora. What a fun night! And these pictures are a few of my favorite that Cathy ( a dear friend of mine in PA took right before we left PA.) They are so special. So much to be thankful for right now. These girls keep my perspective in line. I may be anxious to be without a home...but as long as I am with my family....I am home. (Thank you Josh and Jalee for making sure we have a roof over our heads until we get our home) :)

New Life

It has been a crazy couple of months. We have been extremely blessed above all to know that we are where we are supposed to be. We are days away from buying our home. We were supposed to have it last week....but you know how crazy things are when you are buying a home. We are really anxious to get in...clean it....and get settled. We are buying a home in an amazing neighborhood, but it has been vacant for about a year. Everyone in our ward is super nice and helpful. I think they are just really happy that someone is moving in and fixing up this house. Our Mayor lives right around the corner and informed us that if we need anything that we can just come over and rummage through his garage. I love our neighbors already. I have never had such nice neighbors. They even have the awesome neighborhood parties that have seemed to be exstinct in most parts of the country. So we were watching on craigslist for appliances because this house doesn't have ANY. So we found a woman in cedar city who was remodeling her whole home. We went and got .... A fridge, Stove, dishwasher, microwave, couch, loveseat, coffee table, 2 side tables, and matching lamps.....for.....wait for it. $1000. We were thinking we would spend that on just the fridge alone. YAY!!!! Now just give me a house. :)

Halloween was awesome. The girls were Batgirl and Dora (thanks to Shandra) I was the Rosy Riveter from the womans liberation know the one with her arm in a muscle man pose. Mark was a professor. He is so excited to be one already. :) I am loving being home again. I do miss PA though. I miss you all so much.
