Just an Update...

So, I thought I'd give alittle update on our little life over here in Las Vegas...
Currently I am packing up all our stuff because we are moving to a different apartment. Its on the north side of town, about a half hour away. We wanted a newer and bigger place, cheaper rent, and to be closer to all our friends. We are actually going to be in our best friends, Aaron and Jens, ward. So we're excited about that! Packing is definately NOT fun- but I'm excited to move into our new place!
Travis has been working for a new Heating and A/C company- selling units for them. He's been in the industry for about 3 or 4 months now and hasnt made much money at it so far. Sales are really slow right now because its not scorching hot outside anymore. Trav's had to work 14 hour days, first half of the day at ARS (A/C Company) and the second half of the day at CRS (Alarm Company). I know, its funny how their names are so similar. We have alot of faith that working for ARS will be worth it in the long run- because sales sky-rocket during the summer when it gets hot. So, we are wading it out through the winter until then. We've prayed about it and felt good about it.. I just think we'll have to be patient until next summer.
Xander has been growing so fast.. although he's still not crawling yet, he is on his way. He gets on all fours and rocks back and forth. Personally, I prefer he not crawl until I am all moved into our new place because there is stuff everywhere! He has 2 teeth coming in on the bottom, and his hair is starting to get long. We love him and love watching him grow.
As for me, I am sad to be leaving my "position" as YW 2nd Counselor in our ward. I have always wanted to be in YW, and now we are leaving.. oh well. It was so fun to get to know my Beehives and be "kid" again :)

So I brought home some balloons from the YW Halloween party we had, and Xander had a great time entertaining himself with them! I was in the other room and heard him laughing, and come to find out, he had made a new friend :)

Trav's twenti...I mean, 31st!!

Yep, my husband is officially in his 30s... he's not too happy about that- but fortunately I dont think anybody is able to tell that he is that old ;) Trav says, "It's the Botox." Anyways- we had fun at Aaron and Jen's for cake. Then on his birthday we went to Outback Steakhouse and the movie, Surragotes. It was a good movie. I recommend it- makes you think.
