NCAA Football 2009
Jim got a new game this week. I was on the computer tonight and looked over and this is what I saw. Elise is going to be a football fan I can feel it! In our house we love football season. I grew up in a house full of fans so naturally I love football too. I am not so much into the video games but since we can't watch BYU here at least Jim can play them.

5 Months Old
Elise turned 5 months last week. Where does the time go? Here are some pictures of her from the last few weeks. She still has her amazing red hair that stands up. She gets stopped by admirers wherever we go. At the grocery store today we had 3 people stop and make a comment about her hair.
She is a true rock-star.

Help! I am a prisoner
Chillin on Mom and Dad's bed
Hangin out in the swing
Sooo cute!!

Elise rolls over all the time. This is her usual position
Sucking on her toes. Her new favorite trick

We Are Here
After driving for 2 days we made it to Lubbock on Friday. My Mom drove with us and stayed until today. To say it has been nice to have her here would be an understatement. It has been a blessing to have her. I could not have made the 1000 mile drive with a 5 month old without her. It was sad to drop her off at the airport this morning. Ever since Elise was born my Mom has been my rock. This will be such an adjustment for us as we have had family and friends close to us for so long. I know this is where we are supposed to be and I know we will make friends. So far we really like it here. The people are so friendly. I will have pictures and more to post later.

We Have Made a Decision
and this is what it involves....

That's right, we are moving to Lubbock TX. It has been a tough decision for both of us but we feel that it is right. Jim will be starting the Marriage and Family Therapy graduate program at Texas Tech University. We leave next week!! I am sad to leave family, friends and a great job. Now the dreaded task of packing begins. Jim was at Scout Camp all week last week and I was in Orlando for work all week. I am a bit overwhelmed but we will get it done.
