The constant changing, twisting turning course of events that is my life, have brought us to this point.
We now live in Utah. Lehi, Utah. A place with red trees, bushes, and SEASONS! In my in-laws basement. They are very kind to us and help keep us fed. Joe continues to do his best to find work to keep him busy, but that has not been extremely plentiful lately. We are grateful not to be stressed over looming rent due. We will stay here until the house sells and then try and find a place nearby to keep Scarlett at the same school (assuming it goes well at this school).
The stake here had a clothing exchange on Saturday, and we got some pants and a few shirts for Scarlett and Ellie, and on the way home I passed a yard sale that had really nice clothes in scoobys size for $1 a piece, So i am feeling pretty good about at least having something to dress her in for school. We also found her a hello kitty backpack at walmart that she loves. I've told her she isnt allowed to wear her princess shoes (payless bogo BLESS THEM) until she starts school... she is ever so impatient to be able to jump around with flashing lights.
Eloise is a crawling fool. She favors her left leg to push herself around while she crawls forward, and uses her right leg to "steer" lol. she is so happy to have the additional mobility... its keeping the floor clean enough that is the trick. She can see every microscopic speck on the floor and is after it like lightning! She also LOVES to eat paper and cardboard, much to my dismay. She is already in 12 month and even some 12-18mo clothes.
My mother in law signed me up for doTERRA, the essential oils company, and I am so in love with these products! For those of you who enjoy all natural and healthy things, this is RIGHT UP YOUR ALLEY. let me know if you'd like more information! I'm going to be starting up another blog just for that called inlovewithoils.blogspot.com.
I'm missing all my sweet family and friends in AZ, a lot. I am hoping I can come down for winter break, and escape the *gasp* SNOW!! I have never lived anyplace where it snows so I am a little excited actually to experience it, but as it seems to for the people who do live here I'm sure I'll get tired of it quick. Love to all, that is assuming anyone still follows this neglected blog of mine.
Last month we attended Joe's family reunion, and Eloise got to meet her great Grandma Julia Rawlins.
