Sorry! Jack and I both got very sick during the move. We were out of commission for 2-3 weeks. I promise to update by the weekend. Thanks for being so patient, or eager in your case, Jen. :)

It's a Chihuly...and I want one!

This pic was taken at WGUs graduation in SLC, UT, notice the Mormon Temple in the background. I have seen Dave Chihuly pieces at hotels around the city on privious trips. This one was at Abravanel Hall. They are spectatular pieces. I just want a small one for my new house. I can't afford it. I've never been so amazed and attached to a piece of artwork before, but I love it!!! I've seen them hung as chandeliers, but this one is on the main floor of the hall. You can't tell from the photo, but the people are actually walking past it on the second level.

I waaaaaannnnnt one!!!!

Jack-rabbit loves to play peek-a-boo with the dogs when they're outside. He pulls the blinds back over and over to jump out at them. I finally took the time to snap a quick photo. :)

Jack's First Snow

We went to MS to look at houses last weekend. While we were at Grandma's, it snowed...unexpectedly. If you're from the South, you know how disappointing it is to go to sleep with the VERY REMOTE HOPE of snow, more like a wish. It was magical to wake to the white stuff when we weren't expecting it. Here are a couple pics of Jack's very first snow. He didn't know what to think!

We decided to sell the house with an agent Monday of last week. Kevin and I knew we needed to come out with a certain amount of equity. We prayed about it. We had two contract offers for the right amount by Friday. Saturday, we accepted one. So, we close in 2 1/2 weeks. Crazy I know. We're looking for houses in Mississippi right now. We narrowed the list from 31 to 10 this week. So, I looked at 8 houses today. We're looking at 2 more Friday. We hope to make an offer by Saturday. I'm exhausted!

Amanda & Tony!

My little sis is having a baby sister or brother for Mallory. We are so excited for you!

Catching up...

I'M SORRY!!! I'd ask for a 25-hour day, but someone would just fill it up with stuff for me to do. I don't even have time to read!

Christmas was wonderful. Jack is such a blessing. We celebrated the Saturday before Christmas with some local friends. Our tradition is to have them all over to our house for taco soup and exchange gifts. It was a fun time, and I love to entertain. Sunday was Christmas Eve. We went to church, and we celebrated with my family that night. Granny and Papa enjoyed the new grandies this year. Jack enjoyed watching us open gifts. He didn't really get the hang of it, but hey...the paper sure was fun to play with after the grown-ups tore it off the boxes! Jack had fun playing with his gifts, and Mallory had fun playing with, well...Jack gifts. :) Hers were pretty much the exact same...she just wanted to make sure, though. Cousins Christian and Katelyn sure are growing fast! Christian is now 10, and Katelyn is almost 7. Where does the time go? Santa came that night. We woke up and played with all the cool things Santa brought Jack on Monday morning. Then, we went to Christmas Mass and headed to Tupelo to visit Grandma. Jack finally got to meet Erin. She's the only girl in her generation and one of Jack's biggest fans. She was also the last cuz to meet him. She goes to college farther away than the boys. He had a blast playing with everyone in Tupelo. It was nice to rest our arms for a change. In fact, he was carried so much it's a wonder he still knows how to crawl or stand. He was definitely spoiled to say the least. By the time our celebrating was done, I counted up that it had been 9 whole days since Kevin, Jack, and I had been at our home, alone, for dinner. We were exhausted. Jack was back on schedule after about 3 days. :)

I'll try to get some photos up by Friday.

Happy New Year!
