First Haircut

Jamison has needed a haircut for a while. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. But after looking at the scraggly mess after naps, I just had to do it. I was a little worried about doing it by myself, but fortunately, any Muppets movie keeps him well entertained. He didn't even notice what I was doing. Here are the before, during, and after pictures.

Change is inevitable. But sometimes it jumps out at us when we least expect it.

Walker left yesterday to start his new job in Salt Lake City. And I am left in Boise to take care of a 19 month old crazy boy while being 8 months pregnant.

After working through all the different scenarios, we decided this was the best one. I will stay in Boise for the baby's birth, after which we will pack up and move on down.

This will most definitely be a hard 2 months, but I am grateful for the support of neighbors, friends, family, and the ward. Keep those meals coming!

I won't lie and say we're happy and excited about the move. We are perfectly content in Boise and in our house. But we won't fight against what we're supposed to do.

For me, one of the best parts of the move is that I won't have to get a new Utah driver's license. Yes, after living in Boise for 2 years, I still don't have my Idaho driver's license. Don't ask, long story.

Liz and I have set some blogging rules for ourselves, in order to minimize the kitschy-ness and promote the entertain-ability of our family blog. We know there are thousands of others out there, clammoring for your attention just like ours -- so we thank you for visiting, and want you to be glad you stopped by for a visit.

The rules run as follows. There will be no lol's and no pictures of our dinners. Words will be properly spelled and as grammatically correct as the sanity of the day allows. Stick with brevity in word...and picture. Dignity, always dignity. And so forth...

I guess they're more like guidelines, really, since certain rare situations merit their breaking. Tonight will be one such time.

We thank Andrades of Boise for going the extra culinary mile the other night. Yes, here is a picture of our dinner. How could so much love between a pair of burritos go blogless. We heart Andrades; and we heart each other.

(Heart is now going on the forbidden list.)

It's Official

We're moving to Salt Lake City, Utah.

More details to come...

Many people have commented that Jamison looks like Liz's dad.
What do you think?
