I can't post any pictures yet, because we are still in Cali. I just wanted to write a short update.
Christmas was so wonderful. It was a real treat for us to come here and spend this holiday with my family. Santa got us a wii! Yeah for us. I am looking forward to getting the wii fit to use after the baby comes. It is so warm here!! In the 70's. I talked to my sister in law yesterday, and it is in the 30's back home. Burrrr!!
Dan is looking into new job oppurtunities outside of St. George. It will be wierd living somewhere else, but looking forward to having more of a stable income. It is going to suck working for someone else after being our own boss for so long, but you do what you have to do. I start school on Monday. Scary........
I will update again with pictures when we get home! Have a safe and very Happy New Year!

So, every year it snows here a very little. It is fun for the kids, and not a big deal for me. It is so little that driving isn't a problem. Last night, though, we got DUMPED on! We have 2+ inches of snow in some places. It truly looks like a White Christmas. Here are some pictures from our house..........

early Christmas present.

Let me start at the beginning....
Last night at 10:30, my friend Renee texted me to see if I had lunch plans for today. I asked Dan if it was okay for me to go. (budget) He said it was fine. So today @ noon, the kids and I went to Panda Garden and met Renee. It was fun. It is always nice to eat in a restaurant. 
So we were turning the corner to come home, and we saw Dan's car parked in front of the house. I said "daddy's home!". The kids were excited, and so was I. I love it when he has short work days. More time with the family. I tried to open the door, but it was locked. Dan came to the door, and was blocking everyone from getting in. He then let us all in together to a
 wonderful surprise..........
we were really surprised, and super happy!
Loving the piano sounds!

Since we will be in California for Christmas, Dan decided to give this gift to us now. I have wanted a piano for a long time. I absolutely LOVE it!!
Thank you Dan!
