Texas Update #2

The weather was AMAZING. While Utah was getting a foot of snow, in Texas I was wishing I had brought more short sleeved shirts and some flip flops. What was I thinking bringing TWO COATS and 3 pairs of boots???? I guess I haven't lived there in 10 years and sort of forgot what the weather was like in the winter. It was in the 70's the majority of the time, I think it got into the 80's once.

My parents have two orange trees that the raccoons love to get into.


Notice the damage done here:

Grandpa took the kids orange pickin in the comfort of the backyard, the kids didn't even know they were being put to work.
This is only a small fraction of what they collected:

Fresh squeezed orange juice each morning, that alone was enough to make me start looking for real estate in Texas.


Good to the last drop!

How bad was the road trip. We are planning to drive to Houston in July? I am a little apprehensive. I am totally jealous, I love and miss Texas so much.

Honestly Jamie, the trip wasn't that bad. It doesn't mean I want to make the trip again anytime soon, but it was so worth it to go out there.

Tami, homeschool is going great, we love it. We took our house off the market because I didn't want to have to deal with showings over the holidays. We will try putting it back up in the next couple of months.

So fun!! I told Randy that I would like to start a commune in the Austin area. It'd be awesome, right?

Glad you guys had a nice time!
