In January, Emilee (Christopher's little sister) got engaged to Ricky. Through the course of interesting events, Emilee & Ricky bought our house in Spanish Fork, we sold our rental house, and we decided to build a house in Lehi. Needless to say, January to April has been busy with wedding plans, packing, moving, and waiting. We are so excited for our new house and for wonderful in-laws who have graciously let us live with them until our house is finished in June. 

Here are some pictures to show to process:

Christmas & Beginning of 2013

We are a little behind in our blogging. We are going to try to catch up. Here we go...
In December, we celebrated Christmas by decorating our house, going to SLC with the Borget family to celebrate, and Christopher surprised Melissa with a surprise trip to Indiana.
