Luke helped cut the Thanksgiving turkey and then the following day we moved. We moved to Wasatch County. We packed and cleaned and unloaded and did our best to get baby O settled and used to her new surroundings. Despite change, which is always hard for me, we love it here. But, in the few days before leaving Salt Lake for good, I kept thinking about all that would be left behind...my job, play dates for Olivia, etc. But, most importantly, I thought about the good people, our neighbors, that we would be leaving behind. I wanted to pack them all up and take them with me.
However, when I picked up O after my last day of work, I hugged her a little closer because I was so grateful that I had her and Luke. They will never be left behind and every adventure we take in this life will be taken together as a family and I will always have them.
Despite the craziness of moving, we had a wonderful holiday season. Luke played Santa. We attended my brother's gorgeous wedding. We spent Christmas doing things we love with people we love. And now we are on to a new year!
Santa...played by Luke.
O wasn't too sure...
Wedding day for G and K!
