A month ago today we moved into a new apartment. We still have some major settling in to do before we host Christmas Eve at our place next week (building IKEA furniture, putting up a Christmas tree, and such.) Immediately following the move Eliza and I travelled to UT with Jacob. He came to TX to spend some time with Nate before he left for his mission. He came right in time to help us move. Bless him! We couldn't have done it without him and the gangster crew that we hired. Nate hired some movers because they were cheap. Little did we know they were inner city movers who were stoked about getting a gig out in the burbs. We were stoked that they were buff. My couch and crib both took a hit from this move. Let's not talk about how bad the piano needs to be tuned. We're just happy the move is over and to have a craigslist treasure of a piano in our home.
Eliza turned 11 months the day that we returned to TX! In the two weeks that we were gone I feel like she became a big girl! She adored all of her cousins and aunts and uncles. She even warmed up to Papa Devery and Grandpa Don with time and a few cheerios! Of course by the end of the trip she loved Grandma Diane to pieces too!
TX family and weather gave us a warm welcome home, literally. And home it is! We're grateful to live in TX and can say that we are feeling more at home. Can't wait to spend some time with Nate over the Christmas break before busy season strikes. Looking forward to our first family Christmas in our own home!!
To All, Have a Very Merry Christmas!!! LOVE, Nathan, Rachael and Miss Eliza Lu!
