Luke's Blessing. Oh yeah, & we're moving...

On Sunday we finally had the opportunity to bless our sweet Luke. It was the perfect day, which is ironic only because the night before was the worst-night-ever! Somehow though, even though all three of us were going on basically no sleep, Sunday was a joyous & peaceful experience. I am so grateful to have the priesthood in my home, what a difference it makes! We kept things small & just had our families come & it was so fun to watch them all dote over little Luke man. He definitely isn't short on attention this one. He is becoming more fun every day. He smiles & "coos" all the time now. I love his noises. He is also getting so much stronger & so much more interactive. The other night Bryce said, "it's like he's a little human now!" Haha, yup.. what was he before? Some pictures of the blessing for your enjoyment :).








In other news, on Monday Bryce got offered a job he had been interviewing for with Skywest Airlines in St. George. This is a dream position for him & we honestly feel over-the-top blessed. He starts work on Nov. 1 and we will be moving these next few weeks.

Our house is up for sale but we are doubtful that we will be able to sell it in this market anytime soon, & we may end up just renting it out. My wonderful Grandparents in St. George are going to let us stay with them for a little while while we get everything figured out & we are so grateful for them. This is all just happening so fast.

Even though there will be a lot of changes & it will be hard to move from where we have always been & especially leave our families we know this is the right move for us and we are so excited to start a new adventure in St. George.

Wish us luck :).
