Georgia, Here we come!!

We are moving to Augusta, Georgia! Jerry has gotten a job translating for a private company (not Army). He left for Baltimore this morning where he will be for the next month training, then Jonah and I will meet him in Georgia. We are so excited about this opportunity, but we are very sad to be leaving our family and friends! I will be really busy this month getting the house ready and trying to get Jonah to sleep (yeah he still won't nap hardly at all) But I would love to see everybody I can before we go, so if you have a minute, come on over and visit. And if you are REALLY bored and need something to do, I will welcome any help. Even if you just want to come over and play with Jonah so I can work on the house I would welcome anything. I know, shameless, but I am worried about being ready.

On other news, Jonah is growing so big. He is just about 7 months old now and still a cutie. He is too big for his swing. (see below)

Jerry ran the St. George marathon with 3 of his brothers. They all did really well and they all finished in under 4 hours, great job guys!

Jonah got into his first mischief. He pulled all the cd's off the shelf and was really proud of himself.

We have been working on our house like crazy. Here is how the bathroom started.

Then I thought I found a really beautiful color of green for the walls. Turned out HORRIBLE!

So we (Jerry) painted it twice in 2 days. This is how it ended up. New floor too! (the pic. doesn't show it, but the stenciling is gone)
Joey helped Jerry build this step in our office.

And...we finally finished our office which we started last February. It looks so good!! I love it. Too bad we are moving and I only get to enjoy it for a month :)

Now I just need to paint that door!

Here is the office before. And yes, that carpet was as gross as it looks!

Oh! I don't want to see you guys go! We'll have to come down between us packing as well! It looks like you guys did a ton in the house! Let me know if I can help! It might not be helpful if I bring my little ones to your house, but if you want to bring him to our house I'll watch him so you can get a few things done! Let me know when!

Look at all the great work on the house! I'm really excited (most sad) for you both. Sorry we didn't make it over to say goodbye to Jerry, but plan on any help I can give you.

Congrats on the new job! Georgia is such a fun place to live, that's where my husband is from. Augusta is beautiful!

That is so exciting! Adam always told me all our marriage, we were going to live in the south someday and Utah was just temporary, well we are still here (after almost 21 years of marriage). so I am so happy for you! I will miss you! If you have time, we will have to get together before you go.

Congrats! That sounds awesome Katie, I think you guys will have so much fun. I love the Deep South, make sure to eat some alligator, I had it in Florida, it's yummy.

Oh how sad but exciting as well. When are you leaving? I would love to come help you if you still need it and it would be fun to see you before you leave. We never did get together and do anything sad. Jon's just so busy with school its hard to get together. Sorry. But email me or give me a call if you still need any help. It would also be fun to see your little guy, I never did except in your blog.

That photo with someone hammering away at the step is Joey. Not Jerry. Just want to make sure credit is made where credit is due. Thanks for your help, Joeman!
