Moving!


Well, it's official- we are moving to Arizona! Ryan's working his last week here and I've been packing up the house! We aren't sure exactly when we are leaving, but sometime in the next couple of weeks. We think that we are going to be living in the Gilbert area, but haven't locked into a rental yet. I had to post this picture so that everyone could see what a sweet thoughtful daughter I have! I had been packing all day and I guess I had said something about needing to get something to eat and before I knew it Ella had made not only for herself- but for me as well a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with an apple. I love that she even cut the sandwiches in half! Most of the time I feel like food having been prepared by children is inedible, however this time it looked really good and we had a wonderful lunch together. After I decided I better go and see what kind of mess the kitchen was in, it was spotless! She had even wiped down the counter! I just have to say that for a 4 year old, I was very impressed! I'm so glad that she's such a great helper to me! Some day's I don't know what I would do without her. I feel so blessed that she was given to me, that I am able to be her mother. She's my best friend.

That is so sweet! I always think of Ella as sweet and thoughtful, she is always thinking of her cousins when she is around them. I am so glad that you guys will be closer. I bet it is nerve racking not knowing exactly when to move, and I hate packing because I never know where to start, what I won't use or need in the next little bit! You can have BBQ's all time in AZ!

I'm sad you guys are moving but I'm sure it is for the best. I can't wait til Bailee's four if that's what I get to look forward too. She always wants to help me clean as it is.

Wow! One week, I bet you are excited! No, I didn't think your bows were ghetto at all, Jolie wears them all the time, I didn't know you made them actually! I would love to learn to make them!

Ella is so thoughtful and sweet! I wish Gavin could make me lunch and help out right now while I'm pregnant, ahhh...that'd be nice!!! So exciting that you are moving, I heard next weekend? That happened fast! Do you have a place to live, etc?? How exciting! If you guys need a pit stop along the way, you know where to find us!
