We are in Utah!

We made it! We are staying with my Mom and Dad until we close on a house. Paul and I have been looking every day from sun up to sun down. The process is exhausting! We are so happy to be here though. Being around our family members is so awesome. Tonight we will be going to my husband's brother's home to celebrate our nephew's birthday. Tomorrow we are having a lot of my extended family and Paul's brother's family over for a big dinner at my Parent's home. My Mom and Dad just finished landscaping their yard and it looks amazing. They put in waterfalls, a zen garden,a huge gazebo, it looks like it could be in a magazine. My Mom is out in the yard every single day and it shows! It will be so fun to have our family over to enjoy it. We have found a home that we have fallen in love with. It is so beautiful. We are going to put an offer on it tomorrow! I am using my parent's computer and I have to figure out how to post pictures. When I do figure it out, I will post pictures of the home we are putting an offer on. I can't wait to get back into scrap booking. If we end up getting the house that we want, there is an entire area that could be my craft room. The home is in Layton and it is only 18 minutes to Paul's work. Paul started work today. He was so excited. It was so fun to watch him be so happy about this new opportunity. We are so excited about this new chapter in our lives. We have been saving for a home for years and we are excited to be settled for years to come in the house of our dreams. My Mom and Dad have been so supportive in letting all 8 of us live with them. They are so excited to have us here. I miss everyone so much in Missouri. I know a lot of you read this blog and I want to let you know that we miss you and we are so excited to have you come out and visit us! It has been hard to find the time to post on this blog but please know we are thinking about all of you!

Summer is here...

Well Tricia finally graduated and it is all behind us. We have had some very thoughtful relatives that have sent her money for her school fund. Tricia really wants to be a Dr. so she has been looking into going onto the Air Force. She took the ASVAP test and she scored extremely high, high enough to get into the medical program. I have been very leary about it, but this is something that she really wants to do. It is so hard to sit back and finally watch Trish want to make decisions on her own. I am scared to death to be honest. She is 18 though. I am still giving all kinds of advice. Stay tuned. If Tricia had it her way she would sign all of the Air Force documents tomorrow. I have been trying to slow her down though. My Mom and Dad were her for 10 days and we had a great time with them. We spent some time in Branson with them. They have a time share that they used there. The Condo was so beautiful. I have truly never seen a condo so beautiful. My parents just love spending time with all of the grandchildren I enjoy watching them spend so much time with them taking all of their personalities in. My Parent's just glow when they are around their grandchildren. Here are some Pictures....
