My favorite Christmas gifts...

And people together in a photo.

Day before Christmas - Head to Jan and Jeff's to see them and Laurie+Adam
Love, Love the Hat and Gloves! Thank you. The Boots are the other favorite and that is thanks to our wonderful Western enthusiast friends Chase and Kristi+ Baby Finn.
Baby Finn is darling BTW...

These photos remind me of a Christmas story ....
I love these sweet kids. They are 9 months apart and have a fabulous time entertaining one another!

We did it

Moving day is over and I'm so glad. It's been 2 years since our last move. It really was awful. I didn't realize how hard it could be to move with a 20 month old. Boy was I wrong. I should have taken sweet Aunt Amy up on her offer to take Mills for the day. Instead I thought,"Oh no big deal, we can do it!" Yeah right! My sister in law Melinda was willing to watch her which made me feel so good and bad as Melinda is due with her 6th baby! Her Mom skills are awesome but I really felt bad leaving Mills there to be more work. I know she had a great time with them. It was much better than me yelling at her to "stay in this room, this room only and if you come out or stop watching Elmo then you are in trouble." Uh ... I'm such a great Mom this week. I think I've said enough ...
The photos are from the past few weeks of packing and unpacking Millie from whatever box, bin or set of drawers she put herself in. We saw lights with friends on Temple Square. It was so beautiful. It's been years since I've been. It was really nice. Yesterday we spent around 7 hours cleaning and getting the rest of the move completed. I was taking Millie to grab a corn dog for lunch (I know real health food) and on the way she opened a loaf of bread packed next to her carseat before I could stop her!
We couldn't have moved without all of the generous people who came and lifted and lugged all of our stuff! Kyle, Talley, Joe, Christy and Josh! Thanks so so so much! Really...Thank you!!!
