hello arizona

Well it's been awhile and I'm sorry, but boy do I have a lot to say...
I don't think that I ever really announced that we are going to Midwestern University in ARIZONA for medical school. We're excited and anxious to get going with school. It's a very bittersweet thing to me. People ask me if I'm excited and I am very, but I'm also very sad to leave family. I'm definitely a homebody and Idaho is all I've ever known, but it will be a wonderful experience for our family. Tyler is such a hard worker and I know that he will be a great doctor someday. Hello Arizona. This is our Christmas card for this year. My mom took our pictures a couple weeks ago and it was FREEZING cold, but she did a great job. Thank you, mom!
Kate came up to see me the other night and to have me help her with her Christmas cards. It was really fun to see her and Krew. We tried to get our boys to sleep so that we could have a couple hours to work on scrapbooking, but the little stinkers knew what we were up to and didn't go to sleep like we planned. Well, I'll be generous and say they were pretty good and played together for awhile. :) Our little Christmas tree.
Olivia and I went to the David Archueleta concert last week and it was a rockin' good time. I may or may not have a little crush on him. He was super good in concert and I absolutely loved it. It was really fun to go with Olivia; I love that girl.
You rock.

Tyler's parents gave Jacoby this little basketball hoop last year and he has recently been very interested in it. This is all that he ever wants to do anymore and it's pretty fun to watch him. He's starting to do so many fun things lately and it's a lot of fun.

So glad you were able to decide where you'll be going. Arizona sounds like fun! When do you move? It is hard being away from family but you and Tyler will grow so close together. It'll be a great experience for you! Love your tree too! So cute!

Missy, I can completely relate to what you are feeling. Let me reassure you that this will be an incredible time for your family. The first few months will probably be an adjustment, but then you will love Arizona and your friends become family as well. You'll look back at this stage of your life with fondness and will be sad when you have to move on.Remember you can call or write me anytime with questions or for reassurance. (:

I am glad that I get to see your tree here because I don't know if I will get to see it in person. Love all the pictures. It is so fun that Jacoby loves to play basketball. I remember when Thomas was like that at his age.

Jenn and Tyler said...

Wow, I can't believe how many times he made it in the basket! That kid has quite the career ahead of him!
Your tree is gorgeous, your card is darling and I am so excited for you to start the med school experience! You're going to love it!
