I'm dreaming of a White Christmas...

Well I have nothing to blog about really. Nothing too exciting in the Zellers home. We are selling our house right now, so I thought I would post some pics of the house before we move. I set up our Christmas tree on Saturday. I didn't take ONE picture of Thanksgiving, so I don't have anything to show for that. I'm really upset about it. I even considered taking a picture of us eating after Thanksgiving just so I would have a picture of something. Oh well. We went up to Geoffery's parents house in Rexburg, so we had to travel 30 minutes. This is the first year that we haven't had to fly out to Indiana for either Thanksgiving and Christmas and its so nice to have them close now in Rexburg. We also just purchased a piece of land approx. .33 acres, so pretty small, in Rexburg. It is exactly 12 houses down on the same exact street as Geoffery's parents. We are excited to live close to them and then once we move Geoffery will only have to drive 2 minutes to work instead of 30 minutes. It will be nice to have him so close during the day. I also just discovered, thanks to Geoffery's fam, my favorite movie... White Christmas. We watched it over the break, and I am in love. It was so cute and it was even more fun because Geoffery and his family knew every word and song in the movie. If you haven't seen it, you should run and get it now. I definitely will buy this movie and add it to our collection. Well here are some pics of our house and Grant playing. He is now pulling himself up to a standing position, so I posted some pictures of his attempts. Hope you enjoy! (I don't know how to get the words above the pics without it being underlined, SORRY)

Trip to GA...

This isn't so bad after all

Bad lighting, but look at Grant's smile! So cute!

We just returned from a long trip to the great state of Georgia. We went for two reasons 1) To go to the beach 2) See family and friends and have Geoffery see where I grew up. There was also a wedding, so it was enough reason for us to make the trip. We were gone for 10 days and it went by way to fast. We flew into Atlanta on Saturday, hung out with the fam Sunday, then drove to Hilton Head, SC (the beach) Sunday night (4 hr drive). My family went with us, my 2 sisters and their husbands and kids, and my parents. So we had a huge crew. We spent 4 days in Hilton Head. It was very pleasant and warm (not hot), but we were able to lay on the beach in our bathing suits and get some sun at least one day out of our stay. I even got in a heated pool, so I was happy because all I wanted was to swim in a pool (I was only in for about 10 min. before Grant pooped, but I got in the pool non the less). Anyways, after Hilton Head we drove to Jekyll Island (3 hr drive) for the wedding. There we stay in a VERY old hotel on the island. There aren't any new buildings on the island and EVERYTHING is outrageously priced, but still not very nice. So I sprayed the entire hotel room with Lysol before I would let Grant out of my arms. It was across the street from the ocean, so it wasn't too bad. The wedding was very laveous and beautiful. We didn't have too much downtime as all my extended family was there and we were always doing something with them. Finally on Sunday after the wedding we decided to take a stroll on the beach before we headed back for Atlanta. That was probably my favorite day because we didn't have anything we had to do and we could take our time with enjoying the beach. Then we headed for Atlanta (5 hr drive) and stayed the night with my grandparents. It was so good to have Geoffery finally see where I grew up. I grew up on a 350 acre farm with my grandparents next door and I've always wanted to show him what it looked like in person. I can only describe so much. It was a great vacation, but let me tell you I was sooooooooo excited to be home! There's nothing better than coming home after being gone for so long. So here are some pictures from the trip. I have others that Abby (my sis) took for me, and I will post those later. Enjoy!
