The Buzz...


We've been in Utah visiting friends since Thursday. I worked with Kimmie at CPS in SLC for a few years. Her wedding was the main reason for our trip but we were glad for an excuse to go.
We stayed with DeDe and Russ, whose baby is a month older than Cohen. They are a party in a bag! Because we are too cheap to rent a car, we also got to spend time with Becca and Schroeder while they carted us all over the Salt Lake Valley. Utah is AMAZING right now. The leaves on the trees are unbelievable. Living in Arizona makes us forget there are seasons.

So the buzz on the house is that we got out of the contract on the house on Hale and are instead buying a house 1/4 mile away on Kachina Cir. The Kachina house was our first choice but it was off the market before we could even make an offer. So when it came back on the market during the inspection phase of the Hale house, we made an offer on it... Putting us in contract with BOTH houses. No, we cant afford both houses, nor do we need two houses. So we got out of Hale house and are moving forward with the purchase of the Kachina house, our first choice and dream come true! We cant stop day-dreaming of life at the Kachina house... We close on the 19th.

How fun, is the playground going to stay? How fun for Cohen when he gets a little bigger. Plus you'll have a gazebo! We are excited for you!

Jill, don't you just adore this age? Being that Cohen and Alec are just a couple weeks apart, we can relate with each other. I am absolutely head over heels for my baby. Isn't this the most exciting time? Isn't this the best?

No the playground doesn't stay, its brand new so I'm positive they want to bring it with. But the desk in the office will only come out of the house through the window so they told me you guys could keep it if you want.

Fun times! Can't wait to see the new place!

The kids offered us the Gazebo... I'm not a huge fan of it or the desk that only comes out through the window. We are planning to put a tarp over the playground this week in hopes that they'll forget to take it with them. Dont tell, Cathy!!!

We are going to renovate for the next year as we get money and motivation. The house is livable but needs updating. We'll let you help on weekends, dont worry.
