The Flood

For those of you who have noticed,I have not blogged in quite awhile. This will probably be a quick one too while Emma naps. We had a flood over Christmas. We got a call while we were in Utah on the 23rd of December saying that our condo had flooded and they had to move all of our stuff out. Then we found out that it was going to take a couple of months for them to repair the condo we were renting, so we had to find a place to live ASAP. Rod was able to find a great condo in our same ward over new years and we moved in with what we had brought with us over Christmas. We just got our boxes back last week with stuff that wasn't damaged and the few pieces of furniture that were not damaged, but most of our stuff is gone or needs repairs. So while we wait for the insurance check, we are trying to figure out where to put all of our stuff that is in boxes and get our lives back on track.

Emma is finally getting on a good schedule. We moved her to the crib and since she started fighting being rocked to bed, gets put into bed and after about 10minutes of playing/fussing or crying she usually falls asleep and last night only woke up twice to eat. For you moms who had 4 1/2 months old who slept through the night that might not seem like a great thing, but for me who has had her waking up every 2-3 hours for the last few weeks it is a blessing. Well that is the update on our lives. Emma started some rice cereal and loves it. She grabbed my hand with the spoon in it last night and kept putting it in her mouth. She couldn't get that cereal fast enough. I am going to wait till she is a bit older before we try vegetables and fruits. I can't believe how fast she is growing up. She rolls from her back to her tummy now and then tries to crawl without any arm help which of course gets her nowhere and then she just gets mad....but she will learn eventually. We are having so much fun with our sweet baby girl!

My first blog experience

Halloween in AZ

This is the first picture I could find of us. Really it is Christmas now. Rod and I had fun planning this Halloween party. I even thought it would be a good time to make costumes ( I will think more about that next time).

Europe up till now

We spent a month this summer in Europe and it was so fun!! Then we packed up and moved from Bullhead City to Tempe, AZ. Roderick is enjoying his time finishing his Economics degree at ASU ( although finals stink). I am being a dental hygienist in Scottsdale, which is very fun! I love the people I work with and it keeps me busy. We are getting ready to head up to Utah next week for our Christmas break and can't wait. This blogging stuff is fun!
