So.... what now?

Every once in awhile, I shock myself and post a picture of me on my blog. Crazy, I know.
Just wanted Matt to know that I love the hot pink t-shirt he brought me last time he came to visit. That reminds me- I packed all of our clothes and I don't think I actually left out enough stuff to get us through the next week. We shall see.
Andrew helped me take all of the boxes that I packed to our storage unit today. I guess that means we are really moving. It just doesn't seem possible that we have lived in Utah for 2 whole years. Time goes by way too fast.
Tomorrow I am going to be baking up a storm. There are a couple of things I have to get out of the way before my main food fans are no longer close by. (Andrew and Jacob!!!!!)
We are all going to the airport to pick Matt up on Saturday night. Then, Matt and I are going to pack our stuff into the truck and the next day, stuff as much junk as we can in our car and start out on our little driving adventure. I wonder if it will feel familiar since we did this same move almost exactly 2 years ago?
We are going on a different route this time. We are going to hit the Grand Canyon, visit my grandma in Albuquerque and then keep on going, through Oklahoma, til we get to Memphis and then we will almost be there. The kids are older, so hopefully they won't cry and scream the whole, entire time.
The best thing is that we get to travel together, instead of Matt driving the U-haul and me following him, at a snails pace, all the way there.

I am excited, but sad.
I can't wait to see my old friends and our family, but at the same time, I am going to miss all the people that I have become close to here. Plus, my family is here and I don't know when I will get to see them all again.
Why can't everyone I love just live in the same place as me?
It would make everything so much easier.
ok- I feel like I am rambling so I am going to stop.
But, first I have to share the adventures in playdough that we had today.
My mom helped the girls make little people and beds out of playdough and then Savannah was telling me all about how kids should sleep. It was quite funny. Notice the little baby that is connected to the daddy. That means that they have to stay together at all times, especially at night. That actually explains why Savannah has to sleep with me every single night. Maybe she thinks she is still a baby..........

This is the mommy hugging Jonah so he can go to bed.

Sleep tight everyone.

Will you be coming through Phoenix on your way? If so please consider stopping by for a night! I'd love for you guys to meet Mont and to see you one last time before you move to the south.

All the best during your travels! We'll be sure to keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Wow...Your fav food fan is Andrew??? I'm sorely disappointed. It's gonna be weird having your family gone. Specifically alot more boring, especially for Andrew.

You read my mind with your question, "why can't everyone I love all live in the same place?" I've been trying to figure out a solution to that same problem for 8 years. I'm sad for you that you had to leave your family but I'm glad you're excited!
