{The Arizona Journey Continues}

Wow, hard to believe it has almost been a year since we made the big move from Colorado to Arizona. We officially left the great state of Colorado on this date, Feb 28th, of last year and moved in to our now home in Arizona on March 6th. Time sure has gone by fast. Along with the post I made here about the new year and year in photos, I won't bore you to death with all of that again. Yes, you can thank me.

This year has definitely had its' ups and downs, but we made it.

 A lot has happened this year NOT involving us. While we've been away...Let's see if I can get this right... 

9 of our friends have had babies this year {Stephanie, Rebekah, Jennifer, Ashleigh, Leota, Alicia, Shannon, Susan S., Katie M.-cousin}. 
One of our cousin's {Holly} got engaged
Our sister {Steph} is expecting baby #2 and her and her now hubby got married {Steph & Erin August 2010}. 
Numerous friends graduated from college {In May & December}.
My brother {Jimmy} finished his 4 year active duty in the Marines and moved back to Colorado from Oceanside, CA. 
Some friends and family celebrated their little one's 1st birthday {Isabella-Mark & Sarah; Connor-Cassie & Nate}, there may be a few others I can't think of now.

As for Josh and I...
We survived our first 114 degree day (3 days in a row).
We survived the overnight temperature only getting down to 94 degrees. 
We survived an electric (air conditioning) bill over $200.
We are still surviving winter with green grass, wearing t-shirts, light hoodies (I knew I could wear some of them again!), flip flops year round (but I did that in Colorado anyway) and NOT having to shovel snow or scrape the windows in the morning.
We enjoy having a swimming pool, outdoors mind you, to swim in year round. 

I'm sure I've missed one or more things here...sorry! I hope you all have had a wonderful year as well. We sure have missed all of our family and friends and love hearing about all that is going on with them.
