NOT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know that I am a slacker, but I have a good excuse for not updating the blog for the past month. We are not moving to Georgia after all!!! Welcome to our ever changing, hectic life!!! We are now back in Utah staying with my parents for the month of December. Last week Dave traveled back to Charlottesville, Virginia to buy a house for us since that is where we are headed now! For those of you that remember, we were planning on heading to Charlottesville before we were given the opportunity to go to Hawai'i. So I guess it is where we are meant to be. We absolutely LOVE it back there and are planning on starting our trek across the country a day or two after Christmas.

I was asked to provide snowy pictures. My parents live in a log house in a small town in the mountains near Park City, UT. In fact, I always worked in Park City as a teenager. Anyway, they have five acres and 2 four wheelers---which makes for a really fun winter combination! We pulled a sled behind one of the four wheelers while the other just drove around with kids holding on to grandpa! They had so much fun. The didn't want to stop even though they were frozen through! Jonas enjoyed it the most. After each turn he would say "just one more time!"
