Look whose back, back again... Tif-dos back tell a friend~

After a frozen day of packing and 2 days of driving (and imagine I was only stopped twice by the Cop-pers, still with no ticket to my record, I guess its cause of my good looks and charm, or just maybe I'm plain lucky... I really wanted to take a picture with the first cop that stopped me, but I thought that would be pushing it a little.) we arrived to our new home. Don't get me wrong the journey wasn't all fun and games, by the time we arrived here I was so stressed I had diarrhea for 5 days straight... but nothing like starting the ol' New Year right by loosing 5 pounds the easy way, but we got here. My prayers were answered, the roads were clear, the weather was good, and we all arrived safely. Then there was our simple Christmas, which was lovely and I'll post pictures later. And Nice people stopping by with goodies. And I really have to brag about this one, because its one of the most exciting thing so far is the first trip to the local grocery store to buy a gallon of milk for $1.88. The last gallon of milk I bought in Big Twig was nearly $5.00. And also for the last 4 days it has been over 50 degrees as a high. I tell you what I could get used to that... defrost myself for a while. The kids seem to be settling in as well, Wyatt even got picked up by three lovely girls for a stake activity on New Years Eve. I'm hoping that we can all be able to call this place home someday.

We read your post, and Nathan said, "Lucky bastards!" (I think that was meant for Kenneth, not you.)
