It's ABOUT Time!

Craig and Miss Millie Playing in the water. Oh how she loves the water.

I Know I Know....I have been slackin on blogging but I have been quite busy. We moved out of our home of 3 years on the 16th of May. Packed up all of our belongings and placed everything in storage. That same night Madison had her dance recital. It was one of the best recitals I have been to. It was put together so nicely and they had it running so smoothly. Madison did an amazing job on her performance.

Sunday morning Millie and I packed our car and heading to Arizona to spend some time with the family and get some much needed rest. Most of last week was spent getting caught up on the lack of sleep from previous weeks of packing and playing with a 20 month old. I did discover one thing - I can do things on my own........Multi tasking with a most adorable but very busy 20 month old is manageable.......Let's just say I would play with her and when she would fall asleep I would hustle and get to packing then around 1 or 2 in the morning I would crash myself.

The Elders and High Priest were wonderful in helping to move everything to storage. You should see my storage unit. They did an amazing job on packing everything in and being very careful with my belongings.

Oscar and Aaron helped to move my bedroom over to Prissy's house. I really appreciate all the help that everyone offered to me during this time.

I went back over to the house and Aaron and Melanie helped to clean the house. Words can't describe how grateful I was to have help by this point. I was exhausted and at my ropes end by this stage.

Driving to Arizona was so relaxing and Miss Millie does such a good job traveling. I couldn't ask for a more delightful child. We made few stops but when we did we took our time and stretched. We arrived Flagstaff around dinner time and we talked about it and we (Miss Millie and I) decided to stop at Cracker Barrel for dinner. I am so glad that we had that discussion........then again Miss Millie was agreeing with just about anything by this point.

On Saturday Ashlynn, Colby and I went to see Angels and Demons it was so much fun we had so much fun......

Here we are on the way to the Movies, we had to stop and get goodies at the store first.

Today is Memorial Day and we had a really fun day. Colby, Miss Millie and I went swimming over at Colby's friends home (Pam) although she was not there she was nice enough to let us use her pool. Then Millie and I came home so that she could take a nap.

After Miss Millie's nap my Mom, Colby, Miss Millie and I went to Joe's BBQ for dinner. It was so Yummy! Miss Millie just wanted to go and visit with all the customers.....she didn't want to sit still at the table. They were all making a fuss over how cute she was and she was eating up the attention. Oh well......we don't always get what we want.

Thanks so much for sharing! Hope you guys are enjoying yourselves visiting with family and friends there. That baby girl of your certainly looks like Aaron did when he was her age, especially the hair. Give her a squeeze for me! :-)
