Freedom!!!!

Well I've been catching a lot of flack for not updating my blog. I've been a huge slacker lately, I admit it...and it's not like nothing's been going on, there has been tons, but I've still be slacking. Maybe it's the overwhelming amount of stuff that I get so busy that there's no time to update. Yes, that must be it! Well since I posted last, I'll give you a little overview.

We went to General Conference in Utah because Dad got called to be a new Area Seventy. It was very exciting, and he's been thrilled with his opportunities so far. We are so proud of him, and so happy for him too! Then after that, since it was a good time to have Luke's blessing, the whole family made their way to Denver. All I have to say about that is that I would move there in a second. We LOVED Denver. Luke's blessing was wonderful, and it was so nice to have the entire family together...but we're being overrun with children...soon they will outnumber the adults...that's a scary thought. But they're all so cute, we'll go ahead and keep them!

Then we were home to continue our search for a new home. Well, we found one. So, we're moving and selling our condo. Since the prices of homes is so horrible here, we found a bi-level split with a walkout basement, and tons of natural light down there, and we're putting in a kitchen, and buying the house with Jeffrey and Emily, and Kevin. So we're living upstairs, and Jeffrey and Emily are downstairs. We love the house, except for one minor issue, it's COVERED in wallpaper!! So Emily and I have some serious work to do!!! And I'll have the time, because I've quit my job at the dental office...only for a month, and then I'll find another one, but it's going to be so nice to have the time to fix the house! We take possession on Tuesday, so that's crazy! But I'm soo excited to have more space! Another bedroom, a kitchen with windows, hardwood, 2 bay windows...ahhh...it's going to be awesome!

Lastly, we're hoping to get away to the condo for the long weekend...I love the May long weekend! It's the kick off to my favorite time of year! We're just hoping that we can get things with the house squared away, or we might not be able to go at all. So keep your fingers crossed that our house sells! Other than all of that, Michael and I are doing great! He's working landscaping for the summer again, and importing cars from the States, so I'll enjoy my month off while I send him to work everyday. Poor guy, but hey, I did it for a few years so he can have a small turn! I'll get some pictures of the new house...I want everyone to see the wallpaper I'm talking about! But, we'll fix it, and it'll be wonderful!

Not only have I not blogged in a while, I haven't looked at blogs either.....so I just found this today (may 26th) I love the new blog look! You and Michael made the picture! :) Love it! We totally need to post the pictures of the wallpaper! No one could really know how horrendous it was unless they saw it! Did we take pictures of the garage yet??
