A Life Update

2.12.2013

Today marks one week since we've been back in the United States. It's definitely true that time flies when you're having fun! Since I haven't blogged much, this will be a little catch-all of everything that has gone on in the last 10 days or so.

The weekend before we left our awesome neighbors gave us a going away party. I was terrible at taking pictures but I did get this one of Emerson with her new Build A Bear named Dhabi (for Abu Dhabi.) She calls him Bobby. I told her that it's d d Dhabi with a D so now she says d d Bobby. She cracks me up.


On our last day, Brittney, Grace, and Sophia stopped by to spend some with us. As always, the girls were precious together.

Our time in Fort Worth went by so fast. We had an awesome time hanging out with Jesse's sister and her sweet kiddos.





The car buying experience started off rocky but we ended up finding a car that we love and we are happy with the price we paid. It's going to be our car for a long, long time so it's a good thing we love it.
We drove down to West Texas on Saturday. E did pretty good in the car but she was ready to call it quits after about 4 hours. Luckily the drive isn't too far so we made it here not long after that.

Since then, we've just been hanging out and enjoying our time with our families. Emerson is just loving being with her grandparents. Being home is the best feeling ever!

Things are starting to come together for our move to California so I'll be back later to update y'all on that. It's much easier to plan and get things organized when you're in the same time zone! :)

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
