And it Unfolds...

After a few weeks of bumming around at the Canadian inlaw's place, Lily and I have finally made it down to California. We are now bumming around my parents. Hmmm. You would think that at nearly 30 years of age there would not be a whole lot of 'bumming around' going on- especially when you happen to own a child. Ahh... but this segues nicely into our great news! We shall not be bums much longer! Ben was approved for his Greencard this morning and we just found out that we have secured the townhouse in the town of Danville. The new place is in a great little complex with a pool, playground and surrounded by amazing outdoor shopping centers. Can't wait to live the California lifestyle. Our move-in date is tentatively set for December 12th but we are praying for it to be moved up sooner. The thought of driving a rickety u-haul through the snowy mountain passes of I-5 is not super appealing.

 I want to take this opportunity to thank all of our gracious Canadian friends and family for the outpouring of love and generosity that was lavished upon us in our last days in Victoria. We appreciate the support in this next stage of our adventure. We also plan on visiting often- so you have not gotten rid of us yet. It will probably feel like we have never left!

Leslie- I can't wait for you guys to come up at Christmas!! So fun!

Party of Five- I bet the bridal store will have a new 'no children' policy after our visit this week! That was insanely funny. I bet we will always remember that!
