Are we done yet??

Alex and I officially moved to Spanish Fork this past Saturday. I thought I would FINALLY be out of clutter and done with boxes. I must have been fooling myself. Here it is Wednesday night and our room, complete disaster area. I seriously think we might need to Put CAUTION tape around the door. I am slowly getting to the unpacking but it seems to be taking forever. There is always something else coming up or a cute little baby that needs tending to. So my goal for tomorrow is to at least get my room in order. I at least need that. My sanity is riding on it. On the plus side, I finished cleaning the apartment today. It was such a bitter sweet moment leaving knowing that I would not be going back. It was "our" first apartment. It was the home that we brought our baby home to, it was the place where he had so many of his "firsts". It's where we learned to not sponge bathe our son close to our tooth brushes, he had incredible aim. He learned to roll over, he had his first Christmas, and so many more other memories we will have. As much as I wanted to leave I didn't expect the the feeling of sadness to take over for a minute. However, it is time to move on, move on to bigger and better things.

Speaking of bigger things. I found out today that my sister in law Kate is having TWINS!!! I'm totally stoked and hoping for at least one boy. Honestly, I feel kind of bad for her since she lives in Vegas and I know what's it's like carrying one baby inside, two must be hard! My brother better be good to her! She's due around Christmas but since they never let twins go full term they should be here before the 18th of December!! Why am I so excited?? Because we were already planning on being in Vegas for the 18th to do Erick's 1st birthday and now I'll be able to see my cute little jellybeans. That's what I'll call them for now. I can't call them peanuts because that's what we call my little man. My little jellybeans they'll be until the sexes are determined.

In a nutshell

I can't believe it's almost been a month since I've blogged. We're packing up and getting ready to move on Saturday. Blogging just has been pushed to the back as it was just one more thing I felt I had to do that I didn't really want to do. My mommy came up a week ago and helped me pack up pretty much everything that could be packed up and that was a HUGE help. I can't believe it's already Wednesday and we're moving in with my grandparents on Saturday. Our original plan was to only be there for 6 months but I think we will be there for longer. I've decided not to put a time frame on it. As long as we're actively paying off our debt, saving and doing something with our lives, I hope my grandma will be okay with it.

My little niece turned 2 the beginning of the month and we went down to Ephraim for her little party. I helped my sister decorate the cupcakes while she decorated the cake. We both love decorating cakes. In fact, I was perusing last night and came across a cake that I want to make for the 4th of July. I need to get a few things before I make it and it's a fondant cake so it will be a huge experiment for me. I'm excited though. Unfortunately my sister will be gone by then so she won't be able to enjoy it with me.

So while we were packing up last week, my mom came across my journal and asked if I wanted to pack it. I told her to leave it unpacked. I picked it up last night and the last entry was over a year ago. I wasn't even pregnant at the time. I decided to do a quick catch up and I kind of justified not writing in there a little by saying that I had been blogging. It's true, but I need to be better about writing. Writing and blogging.
