Our Crazy Couple of Days

We made it to Snowflake!! Thanks to everyone that helped us this last week. We had dinners, people to help load a trailer, and to help us clean. We owe you all! We got up here Thurs around noon. As we driving, there was snow on the ground and slush on the road. We knew we were in for some change in weather. It was raining and cold all afternoon. Thanks to Ryan's cousin and brother who helped unload our trailer. I went to Ryan's sister's house so Dallin could take a good nap. Then came the fun part. When I got back I didn't know where to start. I took pictures and will have to post them later. Ryan and I got started in one room and just kept working. We aren't all the way there but our duplex is starting to feel like home. We are just having a little hard time going to a smaller house with no closet or storage space. We went to Showlow (about 20 min away) today to go to Lowes and Walmart. Yes, that's the closest Walmart. While we were in Walmart, the power surged and all the registers weren't working. We had a basket of food and shelving. We left disappointed but laughing. We were experiencing small town life. We are going back tomorrow. It has been snowing and cold all day long. I laughed because just this last Tues we were in 109 degree weather and today the high was around 50 but that was late in the afternoon when the sun finally came out. Poor Dallin came here with a cold so this weather hasn't helped. He is so congested. We love and miss you all. Ryan has only gotten tears once so far. I was so exhausted and had a disaster in my house last night. I felt better once I got it out. Ryan has been an awesome husband and dad through all of this. He has taken great care of us. He even slept on the floor Wed night before the move when we accidentally got a twin blow up mattress. I love you honey!!

OH Kim, you just have to love the craziness of moving, huh??? I feel for you so much, but it will definitely get better! Hang in there!!!! It will strengthen your marriage because you are going through the ordeal together! I am really glad that you are in Snowflake so now I can come visit you and see the new temple.

I kept waiting for a post to see how things were going. Glad eveyone is still alive. Wow, can you believe all that snow in May? I am sure it brings back great memories of Flagstaff and good old NAU. I am sure your house looks great and things will be perfect. Can't wait to come and visit.

We all had fun at Walmart - especially waiting for 2 1/2 hours to hopefully get the computers back up. But it was fun to go back the next day.
We all had fun in the wind, snow, rain and cold - the camping was memorable. Thanks for coming out and sharing the day with us!

I can't wait to see some of the pictures you have taken of the MOVING experience! I have enjoyed the text messages and such about the small town quirks. Remember, Benson had just two stoplights when I lived there so I can relate. Ha, have fun!
