We decided to put our house on the market about a week ago to try and take advantage of the historic low interest rates that are available now. We had it on the market for seven days when we received our first offer! We are blessed to say the least. The race is on now to find a new home- and by the end of January too! We may not have a home by the end of January, and we're okay with that. If we have to set up camp in an apartment or extended stay until we find a home we like, we'll do it. We're thinking about Cedar Park or Leander area right now. Maybe Georgetown- I think that the commute back and forth from work would really start to wear on Jaime though. We also have a pretty tall order as to what we're looking for in a new home- hey why not?-we're going to be living there for quite a long time! I know that I will be a little sad when we're all packed up and ready to move out. This was our very first home- and we really do love it. If we can find one like it but bigger, we'll be very happy. We'll keep you posted!

New Camera!

Jaime came home yesterday with a new camera for my Christmas gift-I know it is early but he wanted to give it to me so that I can snap some pictures this weekend when we celebrate Christmas with his parents. We'll be in New Mexico for Christmas this year so that's why we're celebrating early here in Austin. I've been wanting a good camera since before Quinn was here and am so excited that I finally have one to capture all of her fun little moments! I had so much fun playing around with it today and here's a look at what my little model gave me...

Baby It's Cold Outside...

Brrrrr.... It has been pretty darn cold and wet here in Austin lately. Although Jaime and I are used to much colder temps and snow, being that we're from NewMexico, we're freezing our hineys off here! We got some light snow on Friday that really only lasted about 30 mintues and didn't even stick. Here is Quinn as we were headed to the grocery store that day. She kept staring at her mittens- I think she was trying to figure out where her fingers went!
