 we closed on our new house and got it all cleaned up

THEN the movers came.....Let's not talk about it
  
 
 We've had a lot of adventures so far...
 Finding all sorts of animals
and having a REALLY cute face to convince your mom to keep it
  
Ashtyn celebrated her 4th bday!
 We've visited A TON of farms & orchards
 
 
 Made a couple friends


 had Halloween
 and snow days
we were able to visit Utah and Idaho for Thanksgiving it was short and we didn't really have much time but it was good and I loved being able to see some family there!
We came home and got all ready for Christmas
Had class parties
 
 decorated a tree

 Made cookies

 Christmas Eve

Ashtyn just cant hold still lol!
For some reason I didn't get any pics on Christmas :( but it was good too!
We had new years with a few friends and our four missionaries it was so much fun!
And that just about catches you up on our Missourian adventure!

Before packing up and heading to ST Louis we were able to say goodbye to some family
:'(
 My big sisters and their families came for a visit
 I went for a girls lagoon day with some of the Newman ladies
 And gave some tearful goodbye hugs to my Momma Jina and little sisters
 I miss our family and friends SO MUCH!

I don't actually have anything to write, I don't even have any cute/cool pics to post.
Well I do they're just on my phone.
Now that I've joined this century and got an iphone I never see my camera.
Anyway the adapter to upload the pics to the computer is in the other room and I'm simply too lazy to get up and get it :)
But I feel like I should maybe write something on here -every now and again.
Maybe even get a new blog and start fresh?? This one needs a face lift.
We've moved to Missouri -the St. Louis area- and there is SO much to do here!
We've been to a number of farms, we've been to the AMAZING zoo, there's the gateway arch, the city museum, the magic house, the children's museum, a different historic site on every corner, blues games, rams games, cardinals games, the list is seriously NEVER ENDING!
I haven't even scratched the tip of  the scenic St. Louis iceberg!
Anyway when I feel less lazy I'll show some pics ;)

well most of you know that we've moved and -holy cow- when I can wrap my brain around it, I just might post about it :) 
-but for now, look at these hilarious pics of my "Newman girls' date" to Lagoon.
 I wish ALL the girls could have made it! It was so fun to have Natalie, Jessica the 3rd, and Mom 
-it would've been EVEN BETTER if Carrie, Jessica the 1st, and Lindsay came too! 
It was so funny Mom decided what all of us should be, "I want to be the QUEEN! She will be an injun and those two can be outlaws" lol She cracks me up! It was pretty fun!
Although I probably need to start watching my back 
-Jess and Natalie look WAY TOO HAPPY to be shooting me ...hmm?
