Well we are officially moved to Thatcher and freezing our booty's off! Nathan loves it, I am hoping that Santa brings me some warm slippers. I don't have a way to upload pictures yet, but have some fun ones to post of the kids decorating the tree and enjoying the new place. Just wanted to take a minute to say... THANK YOU to all our awesome friends in Queen Creek who helped us move and who we fondly think of during this holiday. Also so glad to be here with lots of family and doing fun stuff together like eating and playing and visiting.
Most of all, I have received every gift I could have wanted this year. I am together with my hubs and ALL my kids. I have missed my boys so much...more than I even thought. It is so fun to sit down on the couch next to them and realize that at the end of the day we don't have to say "See you in a couple weeks." Time is such a gift. I am blessed and lucky.
Here's hoping that you are all having a happy holiday filled with good food, good company and good memories!
Stay warm and cozy!

So we only have 2 days until we move. The countdown never officially started because it has been so bittersweet for all of us. We cannot wait to be all together as a family. But it will be so hard to leave our "family" that we have here. I don't think that Nathan and I could have known how amazing the past 6 years were going to be. I am so thankful for friends that have encouraged us to reach our potential and strive to be better every day.
Having said that, there are sometimes that I think that my body is too old to do what my mind thinks would be "fun!" Enter Laura Woods...
Usually when she says she has and "idea" we all smile cuz we know it is going to be awesome. She has been wanting to climb a cotton bale for awhile now. I am so glad that my husband is super strong so he could lift me on top of the bale. It was pretty hilarious to see him almost fall off when he tried to jump from the truck to the top of the cotton...good times people.
I would do just about anything to see Laura as happy as she was after we climbed down the cotton bale. She reminds me that it really is the little things that matter. Not saying she is short or anything...
Love all these girls and glad that we have made the time to make lasting memories. This is what life is made of.
