A few pictures....words to follow later!!

So much to say, but too tired to write it all down!! We left Arizona on Friday and arrived in Sacramento Saturday afternoon. We are hoping to get into our house this week, but it may be next Monday. :( I will write more about our moving adventures later, but for right now enjoy the pictures. Today we went to the new house to show Derek's mom, then we went out to the Sacramento LDS temple, and then to Goethe Park where the kids had a great time playing in the trees....yes, there are trees here!!! Yay!!!


Adorable Presley!

Oh heck no!! That is NOT Miss Presley?!?! Her hair is sooo long!!! I swear all your kiddos just get cuter and cuter......

Good luck with the move! I hope you get in sooner rather than later. Moving is such a pain! UGH!

Hugs, Jill

Your children are getting so BIG! Presley's hair is so long!! I'm jealous as Tia's does not grow :(
