New House

We're movin on up, to the east side. We finally got a piece of the pie. Lets see if any one knows where that came from.
Well we bought a house this week. Its in South Layton about a quarter mile from the Kaysville border. I had to stay close enough to Kaysville so I could keep my job on the fire department.
It's a five bedroom, two bathroom, multi-level home. It's about 1800sq feet and sits on about .15 acers.
Now we get to move. I didn't realize how much stuff we had until I tried boxing it all up. I keep having to go find more boxes. We are going to do some cleaning in it and then we will move in Friday and Saturday. So if any one is free and wants to come help we could use your help. Especially if you have a truck.
It'll be nice to be out of our cramped two bedroom apartment that we've been in for the last 5 and a half years. We're sure Lucy will love having a yard to play in.

Temple Square Lights

This last week we made the trek from Davis County down to Temple Square to see the lights. It's actually something I haven't done in about seven or eight years. I work down there every night but the problem is they turn the lights off between 10:00pm and 10:30pm, other wise people would never leave. So when I start my shift at 11:00pm it's lights out for the square. It was nice to finally see what it looks like all lit up. Of course Lucy being only 20 months old had never seen it.
My brother Tyler his wife Brooke and their son Britian were in town from Kansas and came with us. My other brother Greg and his wife Stacy were down from Logan and we talked them into coming with us. Since all of us were going to be there my parents and sister Alison decided to come as well.
It was actually a pretty warm night. Gotta love the global warming. The little kids were mildly impressed with the lights and very impressed with the fountains even though the fountains had nothing to do with Christmas. The rest of had a good time walking the square and plaza. Wasn't to crowded either so we all enjoyed ourselves. We stayed just long enough for the kids to get tired and cranky. Lucy fell asleep on the car ride home, I however was driving and didn't have that luxury and I was not that tired.
