New Apartment

Well, after four months of looking, Tyler has found a job here in Plano, TX, working for Countrywide. We are so excited and feel so blessed to have found something. Tyler started training last week and he's really liking it so far. Unfortunately, he has to drive quite a distance (45 minutes to an hour) to get back and forth. It's hard only having one car so we decided to find an apartment closer to work. We found a place last weekend that is gorgeous and has everything we want. We're not thrilled about moving again and it's especially hard leaving our awesome ward where we've made so many awesome friends. However, we know that wherever the road takes us we'll always have good experiences. We've loved living in Dallas and are so glad we got to come here.

Okay, I went a little video crazy yesterday and just can't resist putting one more video of Kellen on here.

Waking From a Nap

I'm so glad I finally figured out how to post videos. My sister Charlotte and I were discussing how sad it was yesterday that we don't get to see eachothers kids and all the fun things they're doing since we live so far apart. So here you go Charlotte, this one is for you. This is one of my new favorite activities, going in to get Kellen from a nap. He always greets me with the biggest smile that makes me melt every time.


We borrowed this exersaucer from sweet Sammy in our ward. Kellen was very unsure of it at first but it's been fun to see how his skills have developed with it over the course of a week. Of course he doesn't show much of that in the video.

Okay, so I'm reading my e-mail today and got an e-mail from a girl in my ward offering to babysit on Valentines for Tyler and I. I was so shocked, how sweet is that? It seriously has been four months since Tyler and I have been or gone anywhere without Kellen. So, of course I said yes and now we're so excited for a night out on the town. It's hard to find babysitters in our ward since practically everyone has kids and there are no young women. Anyway, I'm a little nervous as to how he's going to be with a stranger and he's pretty difficult when it comes to going to bed, so we'll see how it goes.
