Not too much...

Caution: This post may be a little boring due to the fact that my husband has my computer so I cannot put any pictures on. Lame-o.

Ok, now that you've been warned, I will continue with my awesomely boring post.

First off, I CANNOT believe it's March! Seriously, where did February go? Hmm...not that I'm sad or anything, but that was just crazy fast! Second, HAPPY BIRTHDAY OLIVIA (my niece who is turning 3, going on 30!)!! I tried to get all excited and tell her yesterday that her birthday was in ONE day, but then I was quickly hushed by her momma (something about they don't want her getting too excited about it, because she's not having a party till later...can't really remember why). So, I wanted to tell her happy birthday, but decided that this was the safest way, considering she probably won't be reading this!:)

Now, onto our family news. BIGGEST NEWS OF ALL: We are moving to the Phoenix area! Yeah, that's a big change. Eric's uncle has bought a number of properties down there that need to be fixed up and then rented out. So, off we go to a new adventure! We are excited about doing something new, and meeting new people, but we are sad to leave our families (most important), and our ward and friends. But, we hope to be up here often to visit, or have many visitors down there! How about we come up here in the summer, and you all come visit us in the winter. Plan? I get more and more excited about moving down there each time Eric leaves again to go work down there. It will just be nice to not be a single mom 1/2 of the time. We will leave as soon as we get a house down there.

NEXT BIGGEST NEWS: Tay is taking steps. Like lots of steps. Well, the highest so far is 8. Some days she's really into it, and other days she gets all nervous and makes funny sounds out of her throat. It is too cute. We don't have it on video yet, but when we do, I'll try and get it up here.

Also, Tay now has two bottom teath. It is adorable. And, her hair is coming in so super fast. It is so fun. Sometimes I put a cutie little clip in it, which will stay with lots of hairspray for about an hour! ha. She eats like crazy. She will chew anything up with those little baby teeth. It seems like her favorite thing so far is fetuchini alfredo, and ANY form of potato. Looks like she's taking after her mom. Or maybe she has no other choice, because I just feel her all the carbs I love to eat. Oh wait, she also LOVES cake and ice cream, but who doesn't?

She has turned into such a good sleeper. She is taking two naps for about 1.5 hours each, and sleeping about 12 hours at night. Ohhhh heaven! It is amazing. She is really cute when I put her down for naps and bed time, because she'll play in her bed for about 15 minutes before she goes to sleep, and she usually doesn't cry. What a doll face. I SO wish I had some pictures to put up, but that just means I need to do another post later.

I got to go to a couple of concerts this past week which were way fun. Last Sunday I went with my sis-in-law to the Celine Dion concert. She was awesome. We tried to get the best seats ever on the second row, but dumb guy showed up like an hour into the concert (before Celine had even come out), and we got kicked out. Dang. Then, Eric and I and Eric's parents all went to the Brian Reagan concert. He was sooo funny. It was a great night. I just love him, because he is a clean comedian. If you've never heard his stuff, you should check it out!

When Eric was home last week he started painting the outside of the house. It is going to look great!! It already looks like 100 times better, because it just looks so much cleaner! Love it. Thanks babe.

Well, Tay is awake from her nap, so I will stop here. I swear I'll get some pictures up when Eric gets back.

Bree, you're moving to Phoenix! We can hang out! Except we are moving to Oregon in early August, so get here soon!

Hahaha! Thanks for being the only one to officially wish Olivia a happy birthday! My concern was more that Spencer would be disappointed that we weren't doing anything. We aren't doing anything yet because Kev is out of town today and tomorrow. I think we may try Wednesday. We shall see.

I am so excited for this crazy adventure. Big changes, but I think you were meant to be a desert rat!!!

I love that little gal of yours. She is getting so big! LOVE HER! Thanks for playing with my kiddos last night. Dang, I was so tired and ornery! You are da baste!

Pheonix!? Well, I bet you will love it down there! It is hard to be a single mom, huh!? Even when you don't have to work. I don't know how some people do it!
Please give your super-cute babe a hug for me. I still cannot believe she is walking! That is so much fun. I would love to come visit you before you leave, but I know you are probably super busy! Let me know! Take care!

I can't believe your are moving to Phoenix! I bet your mom is about as happy about you moving as my mom is about me moving. You will love the warm weather though. I am jealous about the naps. Joshua will usually go down fine, but he never stays down very long. Oh well. I am excited for you to put pictures up, Taylor sounds cuter than ever.

Erica said...

Well, I learned something last night . . . Phoenix. Whoops!

Bri, Ash and Ty said...

Are you planning on keeping your house here or are you going to sell it?

Bree :--) said...

We are selling our house.

Jake and Nicole said...
