So for the past little while we have spent every single spare minute we have working on our new house. Our boys were so good to put up with it. They brought their tools to the "job site" and came home FILTHY every single night. Brevin and Kesler played in the dirt while we tiled, grouted, painted, cleaned, and did whatever else needed to be done to finish in time. Just as suspected--as soon as our house sold we had 30 days to get out of our old house and about 40 days worth of work left on our new one. So we worked as fast and furiously as we could and came up just short. We ended up camping in Malad for a few days. Which proved to be a good thing--gave us a minute to breathe.
We are thankful for good friends and family who helped us. We wouldn't have been able to do it otherwise. Brooke and Bree were very helpful with the boys while the adults worked our tails of. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who helped. We are so excited to finally be in our new house. We aren't all the way in yet, but we are getting there.
It has been a much bigger adjustment than I had anticipated. I thought the boys would be the ones to struggle, but I have been the worst of all. Don't get me wrong--I am sure we made the right choice, it has just been a big change...and I am no good at change.

We're Back!!! After 2 months of blood, sweat and tears we are finally in our new house. HOORAY!! So I have A LOT of blogging to catch up on....I know, I know. But most importantly I want to post Kesler's 2nd Birthday!! (Then, I will fill you in on the past couple of months). So....

On September 21st Kesler turned two!! I cannot believe how fast the past two years have gone. Kesler is so stinking funny, and cute I might add. He was sooo excited for his bertday! He wanted a Ka-er-pi-der cake. So his mommy did her best :) Lots of family came to eat cake and ice cream. Kesler's favorite part; however, was "bow canels!" For lunch I told him we could meet daddy and asked him where he wanted to go. Of all places he chose "Chilis" I have a feeling his brother may have been whispering that in his ear when I wasn't looking.
