Now that the holidays are over, I actually have time to post! We had a wonderful Christmas and New Years. We spent Christmas in California with my family. It was so fun introducing them to Lyla. It is always nice to go down there. However, driving home was a NIGHTMARE! It took us 10.5 hours to get to Vegas (which usually takes us 3.5 hours) because there was so much traffic! In total, it took us 17 hours to get home. It stunk. Then we spent New Years in Idaho with Nate's family, which was a lot of fun as well.
Now for some news... Nate has accepted a job with Sears Holdings Corporation in Chicago and we are VERY excited/nervous/anxious about it! We are taking the early start date they offered and Nate will begin his first day there on February 5. So, this month we are trying to hurry to take care of everything it will take to move across the country. We'll be flying out in a couple of weeks for a house hunting trip and Nate will be driving out on the 27th to drive out our furniture and our car. Then I will probably fly out from Utah a few days later with Lyla. So now we will be entering into a new chapter in our lives and we feel very ready and excited for it. We're just sad to leave the friends we've made and the family we've grown closer to. So... if any of you have been to Chicago and know of fun things to do... let me know!
Now for some pictures
She just looked so cute in her car seat...
From left: Rachel and Cameron, Candace and Jared, Me and Lyla. All baby cousins born within 3 months of each other! There was one more cousin that was born in the middle of these babies but he wasn't there.
Nate took this one when we were sleeping.
My Papa Tom, Lyla, myself, and my dad. 4 generations!
On dad's lap.
My favorite sleeping position of hers. She has the cutest poses!
She must have been really bored...
This is just a cute face :)
