Comfort

As many of you already know, Albert and I as a family have decided to move to the Coeur d' Alene area. This decision has come by much discussion, prayer, fasting and patience. There are many opportunities that have made themselves known to us over the last few weeks that we just couldn't pass up. I just need to say what a great blessing the Spirit is to me. We would not have been able to make this decision with out the comfort that Heavenly Father has given us through the Holy Ghost. We are so blessed to have his presence with us always, and to be able to have the knowledge that the choices we are making in our lives are the right ones. Even though they may be scary and unknown. So once again I am packing our things (for the fourth time in our marriage of one year and 4 months haha) and Harley and I will be leaving Washington around the first of October, and Albert will be following soon after. A HUGE shout out to Cassie and Steven for being our own personal live savers and letting us stay there until we get things sorted out. And an even BIGGER shout out goes to Matt and Kami for letting my little kitty stay with them, since she cant be around Steven. We are VERY excited, even a little nervous but we know that this is the right thing for our family at this moment. We are sad to leave all of those we have grown to love while we have lived here, and extremely sad to leave our wonderful family here, who are so good to us.


Other than that, there is not much new going on in our lives haha. Harley is getting so big and is such a doll!! She is rolling all over the house, and trys to mimick what we say which is hilarious :) She just keeps getting longer and longer but doesn't seem to have the chunkyness we thought she would. She has the best giggle, and it is so fun to try and get it out of her! Daddy and Uncle Pasquale, and Uncle Isaac are the best at it.....apparently we are going to have a problem with boys haha!


Here are a few pictures from our vacation and the Christensen family reunion, I don't know when I am going to have time to blog again for a little while, but I will try!



My face art from the reunion,my tatoo artist cousin in law tried his hand at face painting....not to shabby eh?

Change is hard for me, but not when I know it's the right thing. Sounds like you guys definitely know it's right...have so much fun! And I do not envy you one little bit with having to pack...again. That just plain stinks! Good luck.

So excited for you!!! The actual physical packing and unpacking part is EW but settling down in a new place is so fun, I always love that part. Plus you'll be by the fam bam! Harley is getting bigger and cuter by the minute, miss you!
