James 1st Haircut

James turned 8 months on the 4th of December! He is starting to show us his cute personality! He has 3 teeth now. Loves to eat! Smiles a lot. Is close to crawling. (He gets on all four and rocks or drops to his belly scoots then gets back on all fours or on hands and feet) He Loves to cuddle. Likes to pull hair or hold on to it. His first word was " MaMa". Loves playing with his brother and sisters. Such a fun little guy. We love our JamesE.Before haircut

December WHAT?

We have had some Amazing warm days these last 3 for 4 days. Today hit 82 in the valley. We did a little surfing in Newport on Saturday! I love the warm weather! It makes us wonder a little bit how we lived in Minnesota for 5 years and also why are we moving to Utah? I was going to title my blog Minnesotans don't hate us cause we are warm. Then i read some friends in Minnesota blogs and i really did not want to make people feel bad-( cause it is blizzard there.) Just know our home is always open when you get the need to defrost! It is however hard to feel like it is Christmas with out any snow! So Family and friends enjoy your white Christmas! Ours may be a little sandy.
