Happy Thanksgiving from South Dakota!!

Since Jon had 3 weeks off, we took full advantage and decided to go visit GG and all our family in South Dakota!! GG was so excited to see us and had so many delicious and wonderful meals! Aunt Liz and Uncle Chuck hosted a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner at their home and even had a "special table" for the girls!! The food was beyond amazing.....just thinking about the brussel sprouts makes my mouth water. It was the girls first time to meet Cousin Ann and they were pals right away! They even snuggled to watch a classic "Beauty & the Beast". We enjoyed visiting with Jon & Pat too. Cousin Charlie and Emma went to work building with blocks.....just like old times :) We even went to a Christmas Parade with Liz, Chuck & Charlie which was a little cold, but so much fun! We saw Santa...and the Grinch!! No trip is complete without going to the Falls and this time was extra special as it was lit up with "ooh my goodness, these are the most beautiful lights in the whole world" per Ava. Thanks for a wonderful trip!! We miss you all!!

Hello Sunny Arizona!!

We are so lucky Jon has 3 weeks off and we were able to meet him in Phoenix to visit G-ma Lor Lor & Baby Jim and check out some rentals for our new home. We have decided to rent for a few months while we search for the perfect house with the perfect pool with lots of "water features" per Emma! The girls were so good while we were out apt hunting all day, we decided to bring them home some new "princess" dresses and I don't think they took them off the rest of the trip!!

Spending time on the farm....

We were so lucky G-ma Nancy came to stay with us our last week in St. Louis to help with moving and watching the girls while we officially got our house SOLD!! She was a lifesaver and the girls had lots of fun with G-ma. The fun continued as we moved into G-ma Nancy & Papa Charles house for a couple of months while Jon finishes work (official last day is Christmas Eve). We had so much fun spending quality time with family!! A special Thank You to G-ma Nancy for all the delicious meals and "Aunt Chelsea" for all the help with the girls!!!

Thanks for all the memories.....we will miss you sweet home!
