Hello 2013 :)

It's a brand spanking new year! It is 2013!

I am really excited for this new year. We have a lot to look forward to as a family. Let's just take a moment to take a look back at 2012.

In 2012 my Lexi turned 1 :) and she has grown so much this year! She is absolutely gorgeous and amazing in every way, she is definitely her mother's daughter ;) Derek and I also decided to move back to Utah this past year. It turned out to be a great decision in terms of work for Derek and we are in a much better financial situation because of it. This past year I became an aunt :) my older brother and his girlfriend had a little baby girl, Harlow. I love being an aunt and Alexis loves having a little cousin! I also turned 25 this year and as much as I would love to stay 25 forever, I am looking forward to my birthday this year.

We went to Southern California to see my family for Christmas :) it was so nice to spend time with my family. Alexis got a lot of good stuff from us and from my family. I got my snow boots and new diaper bag with a wallet :) Derek got a Nike running GPS watch and some DVDs. Alexis got some cute bows, snacks, nail polish, doll and coloring books in her stocking. Derek got a magazine, work out stuff, an iPhone work out sleeve, iTunes gift card and some protein bars and vitamins. I got a Parenting magazine, a gift card for a massage (thank god, cause I really need it), some work out stuff, vitamins, body wash, and chocolate :) all in all we had a great Christmas. I was really sad to have to go but we had to pack all our stuff to move it up.

We had to move all our stuff we had left at my brothers apt, so we decided to move into our own place. We got a 2bd 1bth apt in Sandy. We moved in on the 26th and Alexis loves it! I am sure Alexis likes it so much because she gets her own room :) which mommy and daddy are thankful for because she really does need her own space. I had to go back to work on the 27th and lucky Derek had the whole 2 weeks off till tomorrow. It took us till yesterday to really get everything put away and packed but we got everything unpacked and a clean apt for the New Year :) We signed a 7 month lease because we should be all ready to go to get into a house by June. We originally were going to try and get into a house in February but we want to get the best interest rate we can so we want to wait till June.

Another thing that is uber exciting is my two younger brothers Alex and Manuel are moving out to Utah! I convinced them to move out here because of all the job opportunities here that they are not finding in California plus they can easily go to school while they work. They are coming out next week :)

Alexis and Derek ending the year sick and starting the new year sick :( poor babies. Mommy has a super human immune system and never gets sick :) so I do have to take care of my babies.

I'm sure there is more to say but for now that is all :)
