So obviously I haven't posted in a couple of weeks... ok, so it has been more like three weeks or so... but that is what happens when all of a sudden you have to move within a short period of time and nothing is packed... and then everything is packed away... and then you are living out of two houses and trying to find things you need while kinda living out of boxes... you catch my drift!
Anyway, we are not completely unpacked yet, but we ARE now living in just ONE home, (and it is finally our OWN home), and we are positively, absolutely over the moon about everything.
First, I want to thank everyone who prayed for us to find a home in our current ward. Prayers were answered in miraculous ways and we got to stay. On top of that, we ended up directly across the street from DeAnna's best friend, and just a few houses down from Mike's friends, so they are happy to say the least. (Although it feels like I have a heck of a lot more kids all of a sudden ;] )
To us, our new home is the most beautiful home in the world. It was very well taken care of by the previous owners, and is so perfect for us as far as paint, rooms and fixtures go that we don't have to do a thing to it right now. It met and then surpassed all of our requirements, (basically we just wanted it to have a big master bath tub for hubby and room in the yard for a trampoline for the kids). If I have things my way, we are NEVER moving again. EVER. I honestly feel that I can be content here for the rest of my life. :)
One of the perks of this house is that when you look out the master bathroom window, you have a perfect view of a triangle of three temples... the Jordan River, the Draper and last night was the first night that we actually noticed that the Oquirrh Mountain Temple, (which will be our new temple), is now lit up too. In just a few weeks the temple will be open up to the public before it is dedicated. Since we live in the area, our stake will be one of many assigned to help out with the open house. We have been super lucky to be here to witness the Draper Temple finished and dedicated, and now this one too! All in all we have FOUR temples within 25 mins driving distance in each direction, (the three aforementioned as well as the Salt Lake temple) and then not too much further are the Ogden, Bountiful, Mount Timpanogas and Provo. Having only seen a handful of temples in person in my entire life time, living so close to so many is just overwhelming! I find them to be constant reminders of how I am supposed to be living my life. I LOVE it. :)
Anyway, I am so relieved to be settled and while we are still working to get things sorted, I am very happy to be back in the blogging world and I look forward to catching up with all of you! Happy Tuesday everyone. :)
