Update--we're in Utah

Quick update for those who want to know what's going on in our lives! We're in Utah, staying in temporary lodging on Hill Air Force Base while we look for a permanent home. I'm getting anxious to be settled, but since we may be buying a home that could take awhile. I found a home I like--the house isn't large, but it has a big yard that lends itself nicely to my grandiose gardening visions. And it has a nice treehouse in the back yard, which lends itself to the children's grandiose adventure visions. It's a foreclosure, so needs a little work--mostly cosmetic, the paint and carpet aren't looking too good. If we get a good deal on it we can afford to replace those. We're attending church today in the local LDS ward, so we'll get a better feel for the neighborhood.
I'm super excited to have a new nephew, six days old today--we haven't been down to visit yet, but will get to see him soon. This is my sister's first baby, and we were so happy to hear everything went well with the birth.
So--there's my update, prayers for us to find a good home and get settled quickly would be welcome! Christmas is coming, and a reunion with almost all of my family, gathering from around the world. We feel very blessed, and wish the same for all of you.

Brian and I were just talking about you guys yesterday and wondering how the move went. I hope you find a great place! I've got my fingers crossed that we can figure out a time to visit when we're in Utah later this month, I'll have to touch base with you as it gets closer. Will you e-mail me a phone number I can reach you at?

Good luck!!!!

I've been wondering how things were going for you. I look forward to hearing more details about the house. Call me when you can.

I can't wait to hear more about where you end up settling! You'll be really close to where I have my family, so we'd love to visit whenever we're next in Utah.

BTW, I'd love to send you a Christmas card but somehow I don't have your e-mail address. Do you have a temporary address where you could receive a card? Can you e-mail it to me at maileinchina (at) yahoo (dot) com
