Hello all!

It has been a long time, we are finally getting all settled in the new place and are LOVING it! Our new ward is amazing and we love it! I have yet to find my camera, so this will just be a post without pics. Hope to find it tomorrow!

Elli is getting so much bigger and is talking SO much! She is so funny, if we drive by Tom's school, she knows....and says Dad where are you? Also, when we drive by her friend Zhar's house, Zhar, where are you?

As everyone who has moved knows, it is SO expensive. There are so many little things you have to get, but all those little things just keep adding up. I don't even want to think about how much money we have spent moving here. Because of the hard wood floors, we had to get an area rug. Our table broke right before we moved, so we had to get a table and chairs. Tom got a grill for his B-day, so we had to get a propane tank. Elli's crib is still not super functioning, so we are moving her to a big girl we moved our queen to her room, (for when guests come; our air mattress broke) and got us a king size bed, which is SO much better for us. We had to buy another book case, our books don't fit on the 3 we already own. With a second bathroom, come seconds of cleaning supplies, towels, rugs, etc. Anyways, the list could go on and on. I will stop there though!

Tom has had to spend a lot of time at the school; so I have been home with Elli. She just craves attention from her daddy! We met him for dinner tonight and she loves to push buttons (ie...the handicap buttons to open doors), she did that tonight, and wasn't paying much attention and walked right into the glass right next to the door. She fell flat on her hinney, it was SO funny! Tom and I just laughed and laughed!

This weekend we are going to the Airforce vs BYU football game in Colorado Springs! We can't wait and are SO excited!!! Pictures to come soon!

I feel like I just keep rambling, so I will post again soon, hopefully with pics!

Oh this post is right up my alley haha I know exactly how you feel. We have moved 6 times in less than 2 years of marriage. I'd like to think we would be rich if we never moved because so much of our savings goes toward new things. It is a pain but it is fun to be somewhere new and have new things! I try to enjoy them so my money isn't wasted :) Have fun at the game tonight!

So glad things are settling in for you!! Glad you like your new place too! I agree, moving is expensive, and we haven't even moved long distance! I can't imagine! Hope all is well with you guys, we sure miss you!

I totally understand about how expensive moving is. I feel like everything we earned this summer went to the move to get to Boulder and all settled in. Since we closer now we will have to get together sometime. And by the way your baby girl is adorable!
