The next time we spoke was just 7 short months later, when we moved to Santaquin. I thought we maybe have a month oh no 2 weeks after we moved in the bishop came over Sunday night and asked us to speak the following Sunday. Of course we said yes. Technically we moved in during November but with moving in and the Holidays we didn't start coming to our ward until December. We spoke on the Power of prayer simple yet effective. Johns mom was in town so she was able to watch Dax and listen to us speak. Everyone complimented us and we felt more at home with the ward. After sacrament we went home and took a family picture to remember the occasion and then we we're off to Sunday dinner with Johns sister Stacy and her family.
After MUCH anticipation for months and months people asking if Dax has walked yet...Well Friday December 13th was a Magical day He FINALLY decided to walk. We were getting ready to leave for dinner plans with our friends the Robinson and we were making yummy Christmas Rice Krispies treats and then we left for dinner. When we got there he was taking steps here and there and I wasn't sure if he was really doing it or pretending. He took his "First Steps" In august when he was 13 months old but stopped and never did it again. The next day we we're putting up our Christmas Tree and all of the Sudden Full on Walking!!!!!!! We we're so excited. We recorded it and Dax was so cute he was putting ornaments on the tree.It was a Moment we will never forget and we are so happy to have both been there to see it. Official Big Boy status now.
During the summer when we were still living in Vernal we decided to start looking for houses in Utah county and we found a few in payson and santaquin. We looked at 2 houses and a townhouse. We luckily found a cute rambler next to a huge orchard in Santaquin and we put an offer and closed 2 months later! We moved in November 4th Monday afternoon and we were ecstatic! We had a lot of unpacking to do. We finally we're homeowners and owned a Home! It needed a lot of work but it is definitely worth it! We are so happy we decided to leave vernal and move back down to Utah county.Sweet home santaquin we're happy to raise Dax here for a few years. We're excited to ser what this will bring! Lots of new projects new friends and much more!
The day after Thanksgiving we drove down to California because my brother was blessing Nicolette . We got there Friday afternoon. We took Richard down with us and got subway on the way. After we got to Joe's we got settled and decided to drive to Riverside where we grew up and went to the Mission Inn and looked at the lights! It was incredible and very crowded. Especially being a Friday night. We all walked around together and took pictures. It was really fun. My Mom came too. After we decided to get Little Cesars Pizza and watch Hone Alone! one of our favorite childhood movies! The next day we hung out in the morning and then we went to Tom's Farms. It is walking distance from their house. It had animals and rides and was all outdoor ir was so cute, The food was amazing and they even had a magic shop. They had the cutest little shops with yummy candy in it. I bought a little bag. After we all walked home and Paulo and Dax napped. We watched some tv and started cleaning the house for Nicolette blessing the next day. That night my mom Jordan Richard and Stephen went to dinner at Old Spaghetti Factory. Joe invited us to Janices his Mother in laws for dinner and Birthday cake for Tammys birthday the next day! After we got home we deep cleaned the house then hung out! The next morning we all got ready for Nicolettes Blessing and it was beautiful Joe did an incredible job. Such a great dad he is. After we went back to the houe and all the family and friends came over for the lunch in, After we packed up and drove back to Vegas. The traffic was horrible! Once we got to Vegas we dropped Richard off and visited my parents. After we got back on the road and stayed at Johns parents in St George. What a long fun weekend. So glad we were able to be apart of it.
