It's beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS!

It's beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS around the Whiting house.  Yesterday we put up our Christmas decorations
I know everyone has this Nativity set but 
it's by far my favorite
We got this when we went to Disneyland earlier this year
Not the best picture but it's our little Christmas tree
Someone got his Christmas present a little early:
The new Windows 7 phone
and this is what he's been doing ALL weekend 
Ok, so this is what we've both been doing all weekend since I got one 
too I wasn't about to let him have all the fun by himself! We've been holding off on joining the smart phone club, we thought it was too expensive and Nick being the computer guy he is was anti-apple (so no iphone for us!)  But then they came out with the windows phone and that caught Nick's attention.  After a little research we found out it would only add $15 to our monthly bill and we got a great deal on the price of the phones from Costco. I have to say that this phone is totally a luxury and a want not a need but I also have to say that IT'S TOTALLY AWESOME!

You say Goodbye and I say Hello!

Please pardon my lack of posting but the last few weeks have been 
busy because we moved into a new place. As far as moving goes, it 
really wasn't too bad-  we had lots of help from family and the weather
stayed dry (whew!)  We literally moved less than a block and stayed 
in the same ward  It's so close Uncle Rico could through a football 
from our old place to our new place-haha
Why the move?
1. It's cheaper (between rent and utilities we should save $100/month)
2. It's bigger
Items #3 & 4 sealed the deal for me- 
I'm DONE scraping snow off my car at 5:30 AM
Here are a few pics: 
(new ones will come as soon as I get my CHRISTMAS decorations up!)
 I actually have counter space AND empty cupboards 
 Plenty of space for our cereal food storage!
YES, Nick really does eat all of that cereal 
 All of our furniture fits in our bedroom 
 Meet my new babies!
We got an AWESOME deal on these 
yay for pre-holiday sales!
