Christmas past....

This little boy is by far my favorite side kick these days. He was absolutely in love with Christmas this year. He'd talk about Santa and flying Reindeer, he'd comment how certain Santa's weren't real since they didn't have a "ball" on their hats etc. His favorite thing this Christmas season? Charlie Brown. He read and read and memorized every Charlie Brown Christmas book and movie he could snag. It was quite humorous and incredibly sweet. Here's a little peek at his obsession. BTW David and I had no part of this, totally learned it on his own.

I probably was a little more on the Scrooge side this year and didn't always feel up to sliding around on the ice and freezing my tushy off. We still managed to do some fun things inside our nice crowd-free, warm home. 

All Grant asked for from Santa was a Dream Lite. Yes a Dream Lite. I'm just as confused as you are about how anyone could come up with this idea and charge too much for it and people actually buy it. Anyway he was over the moon about having it.

We also surprised him with this beauty.  He absolutely loves it (who wouldn't? Didn't we all want a power wheels car at some point?!) and will put little treasures in it each day, go through the "drive thru" for his breakfast and lunch and make sure it's locked up and full of gas each night. I love watching him pretend and expand his imagination.

It's official!

I'm a little late announcing this but We ACCEPTED A JOB!!! After graduation we are California bound and couldn't be more excited about that!!!! The whole month of November David flew around the country interviewing, he was in 5 states within 14 days. It was crazy, neither of us could ever remember where he was or where he was going. All his hard work and preparation paid off when Adobe called and offered him the position in San Jose. They do have an office here in Lehi but the corporate office is located in CA and we feel that will be a great starting point for us. I'm so proud of David!

We were debating between Mars (candy) in New Jersey and Adobe, we both feel really good about our decision. I am excited for visitors...hint hint. Sure it may be cramped in our teeny tiny cardboard box but we'll gladly welcome guests! This is going to be a very busy spring in the Luke house! Poor little Grant won't know what hit babies, packing up toys, leaving friends. Ugh. I suppose he should be used to this considering he's lived in 5 states in 4 years! Sheesh! Wish us luck!
