Home Sweet HOme

Well, we moved again! I can't remember if I said anything about us moving to another rental. The first one we were in just gives me the chills. It just did not work out. The rocks in front and back and no carpet were only a few reasons why we left. But thankfully that is all behind us and we endured a long 6 weeks there. We are now in a much better place. It has Carpet and Grass and is painted cute inside and we added an extra bedroom for guests. The neighborhood feels much safer and we already feel more comfortable here.It is amazing how the small and simple things make it feel like home. What makes your home feel comfortable? We got an offer on our home in Lubbock so we feel very blessed.Moving is not very fun but I am slowly unpacking and organizing our stuff.I am excited about fall coming I saw pumpkins at a local market yesterday and was thrilled. Can't wait to decorate with pumpkins and smell my apple Cinnamon plug ins again and get a Pumpkin Pie Blizzard from Dairy Queen but I have a feeling it will not taste like the ones in Texas!

Keep your chin up, and things will get better. They sound like they already have. I am glad that you like the new house and that you may have sold your old one. Are you going to buy a house after that or stay where you are for awhile? And hey, atleast you have Dairy Queen. I can't say the same for me, and you never know, you may find that the blizzards taste better! Just look towards the positive and things will turn out fine.

I am glad you like your new house. I felt so bad about the other. I am also happy that you are in our ward. You have a great family. We had fun going out a few weeks ago. We will have to do it again. Call me whenever you want to go to the park!

Hurray--you get to unpack the boxes!!! Putting up pictures and getting out the toys will feel like Home Sweet Home. As for the talk of blizzards, you know "I love it all!"
I still can't get over the Chuck E Cheese pictures. Jaden's face in that school bus is classic. Thanks for making my day.

I can't believe those cute kids of yours!! They are getting sooo big!! We miss you!! I didn't even get to see you off! We were on vacation and when we came home you were gone. So sad. I think of you often. What is your new address? We have something to send you. Know that you are missed. I hope you find happiness in California. That is my home...lots of good people. And the beach...nothing like it. Love you guys....marti
