Ode to my family

Yesterday I scrapbooked my family pictures from 2005! I'm a little behind, I am very well aware of this but honestly, who is up to date on their scrapbook? Anyway, as I was scrapbooking these pictures I thought a lot about my family and how much I love and appreciate them. I know that if I ever needed them that they would be there for me. I know that no matter what would happen to me or to Travis that they would be there to help. I love my family so much and am so grateful for them. As I moved across the country to be here for Travis they have supported us the whole way. They have not forgotten about me either which has been wonderful to know. I miss them so much and am so happy to announce that I will be near them again soon. Very soon in fact. Which brings me to the next thing that I wanted to say-

Most of you knew that Travis was headed out to Utah in November to do some rotations there for school to hopefully get some job offers while he was there. I was planning on staying here in Pennsylvania to hold down the fort and work. But with recent events I have changed my mind. I don't want to stay so far away from Travis for six months so we have changed our plans and I will be moving back to Utah with Travis in just nine very short weeks! Hooray! :D I am very excited! I can't wait to be back in Utah! I can't wait to feel that dry heat again. I can't wait to be close to my family again. I can't wait to buy real birthday presents instead of gift cards. I can't wait to attend family home evenings and other small holidays with the family. I can't wait to see my neice and nephews again soon! It's gonna be great! So everyone that is in Utah make a space for me in your calendar cuz I would love to visit. I miss everyone. It's gonna be so great to be back!

Havre de Grace, Maryland

Travis and I had the pleasure of visiting with the Nate, Stephanie, and Abby Littlefield this past weekend. We had so much fun! They took us out to the bay area and the little town and just walked around and enjoyed the scenery. We even saw a lighthouse, which is the longest continously running lighthouse in the whole Unite States! Who knew.

We also stopped at the beach, but I forgot my suit so we just stopped for a picture. For those of you that can't see it look on the bottom left side of this pic. :)
We checked out town area with all of the little shops and stuff. Steph and I talked about dreaming of having real furniture that matched as well as day. And when we saw these fashionable hats we had to try them on.
We ate ice cream, chocolate, had a lovely lunch, watched a movie, hung out and chatted some more and then went out and played some video games. Needless the say, the boys had fun.
But this cutie-pootie had me baby hungry! She was so cute. This is Abby, Nate and Stephanie's 17-month old daughter and she was adorable. She is a talker and we kept trying to her to say mine and Travis' name. When she finally did say them they came out as "ras" and "moe", it was so cute. Every time she said or did something it made me say, ' cute!' and kept me thinking that I wanted of my very own! *sigh* One day people, one day I'll be doing posts of my own kids, until then other people's kids will have to do!
We had a great time with the Littlefields. It was so much fun to hang out with them while were both back east for the short time periods that we were here. Hopefully we'll get a chance to see them in Utah. Thanks again Littlefields! We had a great time!
