Where has the time gone?
Wow now that it has been almost a month since my last post, I thought I should atleast let everyone know we are alive and doing well! We have been crazy busy and it isn't going to get better... in fact the craziness is going to get worse for the next little while. So what have the Ellsworth's been up to? Well we had my family in town over Thanksgiving to surprise my Dad for his 60th birthday. We had a huge party for him, we had family pictures taken, and we ate two Thanksgiving dinners. Don't worry we manage to get some pre-christmas shopping done too! Now that Thanksgiving has passed we are now moving right along with the Christmas season. This year Christmas is a little different for Jon and I. This is the first Christmas that I didn't pull out my 15 boxes of Christmas decorations. There is no wonderful gingerbread tree to stare at. There is no amazing Christmas snow village to awe at, and there are no wonderful garlands hanging anywhere! Instead they all sit in the boxes stacked high in the garage awaiting the day in just a few weeks where we move yet again! It is really hard for me to not set up Christmas and even harder to know I have to say goodbye to my husband for 6 months. It is starting to hit home and I'm really scared and emotional if anyone brings it up. So this Christmas is going to be really hard but I have to keep my spirits up and enjoy the time with Jon and our friends and family nearby because next year we won't have an Arizona Christmas.
To keep everyone updated we are moving out of our house December 31st and the house will go up for rent through a rental company. We will load the moving truck and Jon and his Dad will head to Denver around January 6th. I can't believe this is all happening so fast! But, I am excited to move there and to be near my other sister and start a new adventure somewhere new. We are pretty good at that. What do you think?
