I'm baaaaaaaaack!

Well after dropping off the face of the planet there for a while, I'm back! Things have been crazy.  To say the least! But I'm here to give you an update on our lives.  Aren't you just thrilled!?!? After much searching, and quite a bit of frustration, we finally found a place to live.  We got this awesome little condo in downtown Huntington Beach.  It's an AMAZING location, 3 blocks from the beach, 2 bed/2 bath.  Has a patio that overlooks the pool.  I feel like we're in a fancy little resort all the time.  Can't beat that!! I'm so happy to have a home and be almost settled into it! So pack your bags people! We need visitors:)

My parents were able to come out for Christmas which was great! It was not feeling like Christmas at all this year with everything going on, but having them here made it seem a little more normal.  We had a great time showing them around and hanging out with them for a few days.

Our Christmas was wonderful! Brook got a surfboard and that's pretty much all he needs to be happy at this point! I got a GPS for my car which is so cool and it's helped a lot living in Orange County!! We got lots of fun stuff from family.  Cash rules! Got some fun games, books, my mom-in-law made me a quilt from all my sorority tshirts.  I love my quilt! Just being able to spend Christmas with family was the greatest gift though and we got to do webcam Christmas with B's fam so that was great too!

We have already been blessed with some great friends since moving here.  The Normans have been wonderful and really taken us under their wings.  Maybe they just feel sorry for us? Who knows.  They invited us to come stay with them in an awesome house in the mountains for New Years so that was a blast too.

So that's basically what we've been up to for the last few weeks.  It's been nuts, but it's been a blast and we are loving it out here in Cali!!
