Hello Fountain Valley,CA!!!

So, here's the story... not even two weeks ago I was awake in the middle of the night feeding Garrett and I was thinking, thinking, thinking of what we could do to get financially ahead without Brad getting 2 jobs. The thought popped into my brain "maybe we should sell our house," but then I was filled with sadness plus I had no idea where we would move. I couldn't go back to sleep cause my brain was running wild. I then talked to Brad about it and he had the thought that we should look for job openings in the Huntington Beach area and we could move in with my parents. I wasn't too sure about it, but I called my parents anyway to ask if we COULD find a job if they would be willing. They were.

Then that got our wheels turning even more and conveniently the next day was Fast Sunday. We fasted and prayed and felt really good about pursuing this idea. Which we thought would be a big deal to make happen. Getting a job in this economy and selling our house in the economy might take a long time.

To make a long story short; within a week Brad got a accepted for a job transfer to the Irvine Lowe's where he would still be a department manager but he would get paid more. The store manager wanted him there by April 4th which was less than a month away. Now we had to sell our house. Two days later we put our house up for sale and within 4 hours of our sign going up in the yard... SOLD! Sold to the women I visit teach (Petra)and her family. I had told her about our house a couple days previous to putting it up for sale and they liked it, but already had an offer on a different house. Once the house went up online they decided they needed to come over for another look. Our house is absolutely PERFECT for them even down to the paint colors in the bedrooms already being the right colors for their kids. They will move in and not have to change a thing. They wanted to close as soon as possible. We are closing March 31st which means our WHOLE famiy can move to CA before April 4th!

Is this the Lord's will or what? From the time we decided this is what we should do it only took a week and half to get a job and sell our house. The Lord knew this would be coming and put everything in place for us. Why was I Petra's visiting teacher? If I wasn't, I would not have known she was even looking for a house. Why were there openings in CA Lowe's but nothing here in Utah? Heavnly Father loves us and we love Him. We give Him credit for all things and we could not live our lives with out Him at the head of our home guiding us. We can't thank Him enough for going above and beyond our expectations. The blessings are overflowing and we can't thank Him enough.

Mommy WOW....

He did it! We did it! Parker is now wearing big boy underwear all day, everyday except for at night. He wakes up most mornings dry, but I don't want to chance it yet. It took a solid week, but I think it is safe to say he is potty trained(mostly). I am so proud of our "not-so-little" guy. We have gone to the store and other outings and he holds it... he actually does it. Today at a little play group he was doing the potty dance so I asked him if he needed to go pee and he went in his friends potty with out even getting nervous. (this was his first time using someone elses potty) Every time he finishes "peeing like Daddy" he glows from head to toe with pride. Parker amazes me. How are we so blessed to have such a wonderful child. Every big transition in his life so far has been so much easier than I thought it would be.
This is parker showing me his BIG muscles.
Big boy bed... big boy underwear... Parker, you really are a big boy now. It is hard to believe that in 4 short months you will be 3 years old!
