Arizona it is!!!
Wow - thanks for all of the guesses! I wish that you all would stop and say hello more often!!
So the winner is Jennifer Kallevig! She was the first one to post a comment and she was right! - I guess it wasn't that surprising since we are in Arizona every month practically!! lol!
So, the story is that we have always wanted to live in Arizona - ever since we got married. We have always just loved it there and we are both fans of the heat and not the cold! I don't know if either of us thought that we would ever really move there but things have just fallen into place the last couple of months and so... we are on our way. We will be in the Mesa/Chandler/Gilbert area - not sure exactly where yet but somewhere in there!
And, now that we are telling people and moving forward, things seem to be progressing along very quickly! We just put our house on the market last week and it is already sold! We had a bunch of showings through the weekend and we got an offer Saturday night. Crazy!!
I am kind of freaking out now because it is all becoming so real! I am definitely excited but it will be really hard and emotional to leave family and friends! I can't even talk about it with my family because it is just too hard. I am sure that we will be visiting a lot and they will be coming down a lot too!
We are excited to get down there though. It will be a lot of fun and I am sure that it will be a great experience. We can't help but feel like it is meant to be the way things are all falling into place!
I am sure there will be more to come on that subject as things get closer.
In other news we are all happy and doing well. We gave the boys a haircut the other day, including Nathan. He still has the bald spot/area along the back and sides of his head and the top had gotten so long. He looked like an old man with a fake hair-piece! So, we cut it really short - hoping that it will all start to grow in together now. He looks different though and more grown up! sad!! I need to take a picture of him! He's such a little cutie - our little "Nooter Punks." I think nicknames are so funny. When you think of names for your children you try to think of all the not-nice nicknames that the other kids could come up with so you don't curse them and then we end up calling them the weirdest things that we never would have thought of! It started as Nafanoots (because Tyler and Matthew called him Nafan) and also punkinoots (because Brian called him his little punkin) and now we call him our Little Nooter Punks!
Anyway - Congrats to Jennifer. Email me your address and I will send you a package!! Lots of great guesses! It was fun! I'll have to do something like that again!
