I am back!!

well we have been in Utah for 1 week as of yesterday.
So far I have enjoyed my time here but for some reason it still feels like I am on vacation unpacking my luggage.
It snowed for the first few days but today and yesterday it has been sunny and slightly warm.
on Thursday night we went to bed to this 
 and woke up to this. 
but it was gone by Friday night.

We celebrated Jacobs Birthday on the 6th! It was fun I went last minute shopping to my mall that's only about 3 minutes away! Thankfully because I cant figure out the streets here to save my life. I got him a weed eater/whacker/trimmer, Tarp, Tron and lots of kisses. He is not a big fan of cake so I made him Jello and put a candle in the middle of it. 

I have gone back and forth on if I like Utah and today I decided Yes! I do. All because the ice cream truck drove past our house and I jumped back 10 years or more to the days that it was the highlight of my week to purchase something yummy!

Little Xelly fell down the stairs (16 of them) onto hard wood floors. It was the worst feeling to me and to her. I never want to experience that again that's for sure! Thankfully she is okay now she just had a little bump on her head then Sunday morning she woke up with a little black eye. Papa's kisses healed that one real quick!

All in all we are glad to be here! Some quality time together as a family enjoying one another. That sounds good to me!

I also enjoy the frequent phone calls to my family! I love hearing from them!!

sounds like an overall fun trip! I also get reeeeeally excited when I hear an ice cream truck coming around the corner! It's the little things in life :) I'm sorry to hear about your baby, glad she's doing okay now! Have a great week!
XO, Elle

I'm so happy that you are happy! It's a good thing that I'm not a selfish person or I would be miserable without you guys here! The office is not the same without Xelly (or you) and I miss you coming in the front door with her in the morning - hair to the wind! Can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks! Love you! Mom

Looks like fun! I know what you mean about the Ice Cream Truck. I moved to Las Vegas and now the darn thing drives around every day. I actually posted a whole series about it on my blog.

I'm new here, found you through FTLOB! Feel free to check me out too!
