Goodbye Utah...

This last week has been crazy. We packed up our little life in Provo and moved to Texas. The Wednesday before we left, it snowed a ton so we decided to take Kaitlyn outside and let her play in the snow and build a snow man. She had so much fun!
We are really going to miss our last Apartment Complex. It was such a fun place to spend the last 15 months.

Alma made the snowman pregnant... So I had to take a picture with it!

Packing up our apartment was not as hard as I thought it would be with a 2 year old.
She did awesome and kept herself entertained.
Here we made a box fort for her and she just played in it for awhile with her new house.
Not sure why she is sucking on the Mom figure... but I thought it was a cute picture.

Alma drove the truck all the way to Texas and Kaitlyn and I were lucky enough to fly to Texas, with a layover in Denver. Since she just turned two 2 weeks before we had to buy her a seat... which she loved. She looked so cute in her little seat all ready to go.

As crazy as moving is... we were able to find sometime to say good bye to good friends before we left.
The night before we left we went to Salt Lake and saw some of Almas friends from College. It was great to get to see them one more time.
After dinner, we decided, since I had never been to Temple square at Christmas... that we would go look at the lights.

Great friends!

And Shannon and Owen had us over for the best dinner ever the Sunday before we left and it was so great to catch up and talk about life and of course, babies.
Shannon is exactly 8 weeks ahead of me with a little boy. It was so fun to show off our preggo bellies!
She is super cute!!

We are going to miss them big time... especially watching LOST together on our little love seat!

We are now in Texas and finally settled, unpacked and feeling a little bit of the stress from moving melt away and starting to enjoy the Christmas season... especially at 77 degrees.
