The Printer

Our printer is in our closet...mostly because it's a huge black monstrosity that I don't want in the living room. Ruby is fascinated by it. Every time we print or copy something she has to check it out. And she always strikes this pose:

We have a few bushes in our landscaping that attract butterflies and during the summer we didn't see many, probably because it was so hot. But once fall hit and the weather cooled we've had tons of butterflies frequenting our yard. Ruby's loved watching them and trying to find them and it's been fun for me to see the plants that I picked finally doing what they're supposed to.

Can you spot them?

We had such a great time in Utah for Thanksgiving. We saw Bobby's family and Ruby loved spending time with her Grandma all of Daddy's family. We ate lots of good food there, of course, and enjoyed being together.

We spent most of our time with my parents which was so nice because all of my siblings and their spouses were able to be there. With all of us and our schedules it's not a common thing for us to all be able to be under one roof too often.

Unfortunately Ruby got walloped by hand, foot and mouth disease and was understandably a crank most of the time. Luckily she's got such an easy going and sweet personality that she still had a great time, and we know how blessed we are to not have to have too hard of a time when she's under the weather.

She had so much fun taking a trip to the Wheeler Farm and seeing the animals.

And playing with Grandpa and his iphone and ipad.

And of course putting stickers on her aunt's and uncle's noses.

Going to Colorado

A couple months ago our little family came to the conclusion that our little Texas town is not where we're supposed to be. Bobby started looking for a job and I reluctantly realized that we'd need to pack up our house and move (ugh, I hate moving!).

We narrowed down where we'd like to go either to Utah or Colorado, both being much closer to family. Utah ended up being a no go, but we lucked out with Colorado and Bobby has landed a great opportunity in Broomfield, Colorado. We're very excited, and feel very blessed that this has all worked out and that we'll be able to make a new home there. Especially since we'll be having a new addition to our little family in June.

We'll be moving at the end of the month, so Christmas will be celebrated, albeit somewhat abbreviated, and then we'll finish packing up and be on our way. It definitely will be a little bit of a shock going from 70 degree weather to freezing temps, but we are so excited.

We will miss the wonderful people we've met here in Beeville. They are honestly some of the kindest people we've associated with and our little congregation here is truly special.

So now our next few weeks are going to be a blur of packing, cleaning and trying (cross your fingers) to sell our house before we move. Our new adventure awaits!
