I was thinking last night how I still miss the house Lee and I rented in Bountiful right after we were married. It was even smaller then this. The shower was so small you couldn't shave your leg's, the front door you could see daylight through multiple cracks, it was just a tiny little 2 bedroom....BUT it was our first home, our first Christmas, the first place we cooked dinner together, our first yard. I now feel that same sort of nostalgia for this place. I am sad to leave the home we picked out from the ground up, the home we brought Keaton home to, the home that we had Keaton on Billi lights for a month in, that front room that I rocked my little preemie in night after night after night because he couldn't figure out how to sleep, the neighborhood where Lee would be sure the snow was gone not only on our drive but the neighbors too, sweet little old Pat next door, our great ward, Abigail and Andrew, the list goes on and on.....
How can we leave?!?
Do you still feel nostalgic for any of your old nests or am I finally certifiable :)?

P.S. We have to be out about a week before we can move into our new house. We are going to rent a U-haul for a week so we don't have to load 2x. Any ideas where we can park that thing for a week while we stay with my Aunt?

This sister graduates this weekend with her Doctorate. We are pretty proud of her. Her Doctorate is in English and Creative Writing emphasis is Poetry. For many people it takes years to get a teaching gig. Deja got a college professor job at Framingham State College in Boston (We are thrilled for a reason to go back east, not to mention a free place to stay!) before she even walked down the aisle, YAHOO a way to pay off student loans. As you can imagine she has a great writing style, and she is just entering the Blogging world. Click HERE to check out here new Blog.
P.S. She is single and will be in Utah for a couple of months if you have any cute single friends!
Keaton and I LOVE the downtown SLC library. Not only does it have the coolest elevators but also the coolest story time. The lady that does it plans a couple of books (always interactive books), a puppet show, and a couple of songs. This week was all about ducks and chickens so the song was the chicken dance. The picture is deep in the heart of the chicken dance. I put the one on here with Keatons favorite friends in the whole world. Keaton is going through a shy stage and would not participate until I did it with him :(
After the story time it is always fun to check out all their kids reading nooks, or climbing areas as Keaton likes to refer to them :)
This month I also tried my hand at English Toffee (think Almond Roca). I thought it would be hard. Thanks to THIS ANYONE can make this delicacy. This lady walks you through step by delicious step, easy as pie.
