It's been a while since I have last posted anything on here. I cannot believe where time is going! I mean Mason is almost 1!! WHHAAAT??? 1?? Where the heck has this past year gone? It makes me sad thinking that I almost have a 1 year old. I have absolutely loved having Mason in our lives this past year! Kyle and I have grown so close because of him and our love for another person has grown immensely! Since Mason has been born we have made him change time zones 3 times! Poor guy. But he is a champ and does it so well! When Mason was 5 months old we moved to China. Then when he was 9 months old, we moved back to Utah. And now he is almost 12 months old and we have moved to California.
Kyle got a job out here in California just over a month ago, so he has been living out here for just over a month. And Mason and I just moved out here last week. So ya we have been here a week and we are in love with this place! We have gone to the beach more times in a week than I have been my entire life! I love living 10 minutes from the beach! Mason is so close to walking, he will take 10-12 steps at a time, and so it's really fun taking him to the beach and having him walk to us.
When Mason and I first moved out here, I had a really hard time with being homesick. I love the feeling of being surrounded by family members or just being surrounded in a familiar place, it's a comfort to anyone I think. For some reason moving to California was harder on me than moving to China was... don't ask me why but it was. We have been so blessed to have good friends Chris and Randi Holmes out here with us, so it's been nice being able to hang out with people we already know. When Sunday rolled around I was over the moon ecstatic to go to church. As soon as we walked into our church building, that familiar feeling of being surrounded by family entered my soul. I felt like I was at home! I felt that feeling of relief, love, comfort, shoulders to cry on... home. I LOVE the church! I LOVE being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! I LOVE it! All the members were so welcoming to Kyle and I, I even got invited to a 1 year old's birthday party haha
All-in-all we have loved living in California! I would post some pictures of what we have been doing, but my phone is being retarded and I can't access my pictures. But take my word for it, living 10 minutes from the beach and 20 minutes from Disneyland... it doesn't get better! When my phone stops acting like a teenager and starts listening to me when I push it's buttons.... I will post pictures.
