It's Officially Official

Now we FINALLY know where we will be moving to. Landon was accepted to Creighton University School of Dentistry where he was on the waiting list until just last week. We thought for sure we would be moving to Ohio in August but are SO HAPPY that he was accepted to Creighton. It is a great school and one of the benefits is that Utah students get in-state tuition. And the even greater benefit is that the first year of school is at the University of Utah!! I need to brag a little bit here, Landon was one of ten students to be accepted to the RDEP program at the U, I think that stands for Resident Dental Education Program, I could be wrong (I really should know what that stands for by now) I always just assume I know things. So we will be here for yet another year and then off to Omaha, Nebraska, which is only about a 12 hour drive. I am so glad that we don't have to move in August with a brand new baby too. I feel as if Heavenly Father is preparing me to live away from family and knows that it will be hard for me. We first thought we would be moving when Kinnie was almost one and didn't get accepted, then we thought we would be moving this August to Ohio, now we know we won't be moving until next summer and only be gone for three years instead of four. I really do look forward to live in a new place but I am glad I have been given more time to live so close to family.

Our December

First, we had really fun Christmas Eve putting Kinnie in this shirt to make an announcement to our families. I didn't get a very good picture because our camera is dying but take a look at the print on Kinnie's shirt...

That's right, this July Kinnie is going to be a big sister! We are so excited! I pretty much feel sick all the time and it gets worse throughout the day. With Kinnie I didn't feel sick all day, just in the afternoons so who knows what that means right?...

Enjoying the snow, sort of (I really miss summer!)

Kinnie was a little under the weather and the only place she would settle down was the floor in her room. Pretty cozy.

I had to include this picture of Christmas morning because I love Kinnie's expression.

I was so excited that Kinnie loved her stroller!

And Happy New Year! I can't believe it is 2009 and that December has come and gone. It is sad when Christmas comes and goes so quickly, it is such a fun time of year, and this year it zoomed by for us. I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays.
