back in rexburg

We had a good time in Grand Junction, way too much snow but it was nice. we got back about 1 this morning to find that about 3 feet of snow had fallen while we were gone. It's suppose to snow non stop for the next few days. this is gunna be a fun move on monday... anyway I don't have a ton of time. I didn't have my camera christmas morning so I will have to get pics from my father in law who took plenty. here are some pics of rexburg today. including a picture of my friend jacko's car... you have to look closely to see its a car.

I read about 25 pages this morning before I had to be a responsible parent and then i picked it up again "tonight" (technically last night) and I'm on page 347... now i have to go to bed so i can wake up and be a responsible parent again tomorrow... then finish the book so i can go watch the movie with my sister in law tomorrow :)

Seth didn't actually walk but he graduated! We are finally done at BYU-I... well... as long as they don't lose his paperwork again. I'm proud of him and excited for our future away from Idaho and with an actual income. Wish us luck... we need to be packed by tuesday and we've barely started.

some cute pictures

I still haven't gotten everything working on this computer and since we have windows vista it is rediculous to figure out because you have to give the computer permission to do everything you tell it to do... so here are some explainations on the pics. we went on a horse drawn carriage ride for jackos birthday. Lily thinks everything should be eaten off a fork. She loves to climb into everything. she got into powdered-sugar donuts while i was in the other room and of course she loves to feed her snuggle bear. oh and she is obsessed with sitting like that on seth any time he kneels... she is a goof.

catch up

This is just going to be a quick review of the last few weeks. Sorry I haven't posted but we have been busy getting ready for the big move.

THE MORRIS FAMILY IS GOING ORGANIC (when it comes to dairy at least). We discovered that Lily isn't allergic to milk itself but something in non-organic milk. This is something we assumed before, but recently we truely tested it and found that she has no reaction with organic dairy products. This contradicts everything we have read about milk allergies. (which makes me wonder how many kids are actually allergic to milk) Luckily in phoenix it is quite easy to find organic dairy products for a reasonable price.

We found a house to rent in Gilbert. It is a 4 bedroom 2 bathroom house, in a good area and the backyard is seths dream! It has a grapefruit, 2 orange, lemon and tangerine and apple trees. It also has 4 raised garden beds, set up with irrigation and all. It has a underground fire pit in the back too. (which is awesome for seth who really wants to cook underground. It has a tool shop and tons of storage including a pantry almost the size of moms storage room. Anyway the house wasn't my favorite of the houses we looked at but the property makes up for it. We are really excited and we will be moving in around the 28th of the month, just in time for seth to start work the next week. If we like the house we will probably save up for a down payment and buy it from the owners

We went to Blythe for thanksgiving. It was nice, but weird without more people there. I missed all of my siblings. Lily loved having the attention of her granny and grandpa, who spoiled her by pushing her in the swing for hours a day. She would simply grab one of their hands and take them to the back door.

Lilys current favorite hobbies include talking and talking and talking on the phone. She steals my phone and walks around the house just jabbering on and on. She also likes to turn anything into a baby doll. In the bath she takes two shampoo bottles (one for each arm). She rocks them, kisses them and pats them on the back. She is obsessed with babies. Shes a ton of fun. Anyway its late and mmy bread is done baking so i am going to bed.
