After much careful thought and prayer we have decided, not to move to Minnesota! I really appreciate all of your comments and words of advice. I know that someday I may have to move away from my family, and it will suck, but I am sure I will come out a stronger person on the other end. However, now just doesn't seem to be that time. So, the more local job hunt continues. Even Seattle would be fine, it is still within driving distance, but the ultimate hope is that we can stay in our house since we just bought it and don't want to pay back the $8,000 the government was so kind to give us.

In other great news, it is snowing. I love everything about Christmas and the holiday season. Snow just makes everything so pretty! I love just gazing out the window as it flutters and floats and swirls around. I'm sure I'll still even measure it like when I was a kid hoping for a snow day. Unfortunately, snow days don't apply to real jobs, but if we get one, maybe I can take the kids out to play with Grandpa since he's a teacher and snow days are exciting for him too!
And the last piece of good news is for you guys! With snow comes the season of giving, and what better time to have a giveaway. The snow is telling me tomorrow would be a great day for a giveaway!
