All is still well. We are slowly getting settled in. Still no phone or Internet. We'll keep you posted. Have a fabulous week.

Aaron had his eyes glued on our chef, as you can see in these pictures, and the chef loved Aaron. Everyone at our table ended up watch Aaron's reactions instead of watching the chef perform. It was so much fun. He was just in utter awe. That's a chopstick in his hand, by the way.
This is a picture of Aaron with the Valentine's Bear that Kimmie got him. I will say 'Thank God for Grandparents'. Grandma Beth sent Aaron a Valentine's Package that included the SWEETEST book. I must take a picture. And Kimmie sent him a card in the mail that he played with A LOT and gave him this bear. If it wasn't for Grandmas, Aaron would have received nothing for Valentine's this year. Nothing. I should be too proud to admit that, but I guess I'm not. He didn't even wear a red sweater and I didn't buy him a bib that says 'Baby's First Valentine's'. Nothing. It is incredibly pitiful and I'm already trying to figure out what picture I'll use for February in next year's calendar. But all of that to say, 'Thank God for Grandparents!'
And today Aaron was eating lunch and I was reading the paper and I swear to you, he cleared his throat! I looked up and he had eaten everything on his plate. He was looking at me like, "Ummm...I'm out of food here!"And here he is with a huge bowl of corn that I brought from home. We went to Chick Fil A today for a Farewell Lunch with our Sunday School Class. Aaron was the sweetest boy ever. I was so proud of him!

Here are the two video links. The first one is the original from Jan 30th. The second one is a week later. Watch them both and see for yourself how much he improved in a week!

We will not move all of our stuff to Dallas for at least a week. We'll just take what we need to get by. Aaron and I will have to come back quite a bit in the next weeks anyway so we will be pseudo-living in Dallas. We will have movers move everything else. Probably in about a week. We are getting estimates on that now. We are going to get some estimates on having a moving company just handle the whole thing. That way it could be done on a weekday. Assuming we can't afford that, we have priced renting a U-Haul and paying movers to load the truck here and paying Dallas movers to unload it in Dallas. This would have to be done over a weekend, so it would probably be the 20th and the 21st.
In any case, very soon we will be together again in Dallas!
He did, however, still make it to Dallas in an hour.
The next two pictures are from Tyler. We have less snow than DFW but WAY more than we were supposed to and it's still snowing!
I also took some pictures of the Munchkin watching the snow. I'll post those soon. I did not take him out in it. I am the only person in the area who did not take her child out to experience the plethora of snow likely never to be seen again in such quantities. I am positive that if Jory were here Aaron would have had his first snow experience. Alas, he is not and I am not interested in playing in the snow. We can add that to the reasons I will likely not earn Mother of the Year this year.

The rest of these pictures are from Sunday morning. Daddy was being silly to make Aaron laugh.

I think this picture is great. Do you see the mirror behind Aaron? Do you see that he was practicing his kisses on it?Jory had another great day at work and another good commute. He left his dad's early and drove to an area where we would really like to live. He left that neighborhood at 7am and made it to work in less than 30 minutes! Very encouraging!The Munchkin seems to have abandoned crawling for good now. He walks everywhere and if he falls he just gets up and keeps on trucking. It's a little unsettling how quickly he can be gone now!

We are STILL waiting to hear on the house. We have been told that they have a list of amendments they want to attach to the contract based on the inspection (though we believe most will be minor), but we do not have them yet. We were supposed to get them either yesterday or today and then this morning we were told that we would definitely have them today. Since the option period ends on Friday, the negotiation time is shrinking and I am very ready to have all of this settled!
