I guess it's time for an update!

Here goes an update in the life of the Tag Team.

Where did we leave off?

Spence graduated from Thunderbird on December 12, yipee! December 13 we packed up all of our stuff and moved back to SLC. Yes, it's true, we are officially home to Utah. The funny thing - we were open with going anywhere in the world (in terms of Spencer's job) and he ended up accepting a great job in downtown SLC. I wasn't so sure I thought we would ever end up back in Utah, but I can't complain. We are thrilled to be back with family and friends... minus the cold weather, living in California and Arizona definitely had its perks! He started his job on December 17 and so far so good.

(*A side note to our Thunderbird friends - he did get the offer with Flying J, but we didn't feel right about it. We were shocked to hear 1 week after he declined the offer they took out Chapter 11 bankruptcy. You can only imagine our gratitude.)

Well, where did we move? After our bad experience buying a house in California, we were "for sure" not buying a house again! Well, after crunching the numbers, we have decided to look around for a house and so for now our stuff is in a pod somewhere!

Here are some pictures of what we have been up to lately. The week before Christmas we had two friends come into town. First my BF from my study abroad in London came and stayed with us with her little boy Brennan, and the next night our friends from Provo came and slept over with their baby Spencer.

We had a wonderful Christmas Eve at my parents house. Our friend Dale came over and celebrated with us and we were happy to have his company. Christmas was a lot of fun with Lance this year, however he was a bit overwhelmed with all the presents and places we went that day.

Let's see - here are some pictures from the week after Christmas. We went out to dinner with a bunch of T-birds up in Park City, laughed and played with Lance, celebrated Christmas with my brother and his wife when they got into town, and had a girls luncheon.

Here are some pictures from New Years Eve. We went out to a great dinner with some good friends and then to the U game. And what a great game, the Utes beat Gonzaga by 1 point! And the other pictures are what we have been up to since.

So there is a run down on what our little Tag Team has been up to. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Go 2009! Now that we are back in SLC, we would love to hang out!

That is awesome that you guys are back in UT!! Looks like you have been enjoying yourselves as always. We need to do a play date or lunch for sure! I am free pretty much any day, so let me know.

I will be in Utah in february. No need to send the book. I will call you when I get into town.
I am so happy to hear that you didn't go with flying J. We were thinking of you guys. Hope all goes well.

I'm just so excited Spence landed a job in this awful economy. Cheers to him! And in SLC... though we're not living here, we'll for sure see you more often, which makes me happy.

Happy New Year! Whoop Whoop!

I miss Lance! My marshmellow man :( I love his hair all spiked! Cute, fun pictures. Your sister in law looks a lot like you and your mother. Isn't that funny. She's very pretty. I'm sure you heard we ran into your parents. Small world. Hope Spence is loving his new job. xo
