For those who don't already know, we have relocated our little family to Spokane, Washington. Joe finished his last semester of his Masters Degree at BYU in December and has started a new job in Spokane. He works for a local accounting firm here in the Valley called Dingus, Zarecor and Associates. It's a very small firm (I think that there's a total of 17 people on staff) and seems to be a great fit for him. We are now hunting for our first house and that has been quite a rollercoaster ride! It looks like we're going to be putting an offer on a house in the next couple of days, so hopefully we'll get this one. (The last one we put an offer on, we were outbid by another family by about 1%, I was so bummed!) I just can't wait to get into a house and finally get all of our stuff out of storage! (Most of it has been there for the past year as we've been moving back and forth for school and internships.) But, for now, my parents have surrendered their basement to our little family. Sam loves being at Grandma and Grandpa's house and all the extra attention he gets here. I love not having to cook dinner every night (we take turns) and having extra hands to help when I need it with a (sometimes) fussy baby and an always stubborn two year old. It's especially helpful when Joe is out of town, like he is this week. That's latest with us, we'll keep you posted on the house hunt!

I'm not quite sure what I'm doing, but I'm determined to figure this blog thing out. I've decided that it's time to jump on the band wagon and so I go! If anyone has any pointers or suggestions, feel free to let me know, I'm just learning by trial and error.
