Kansas City, mogli children, and John Denver

Ev'rythin's up to date in Kansas City
They've gone about as fur as they c'n go!

After gobs of resumes, interviews, and a few offers, Spencer has accepted a job offer in Kansas City with the consulting firm, Burns & McDonnell. Both Spencer and I are really excited about the job and uber-excited about the location (it's right on the border between Missouri and Kansas). It's a beautiful city, both the city itself and the area, environment-wise. As an added bonus, it's only a 4-5 hour drive away from my family in Oklahoma and significantly cuts down the time it takes to get to Spencer's family in Utah. So, come June this summer, we'll be living in be-u-tiful Kansas City!
Yes sir, that's my baby
No sir, I don't mean maybe

Scarlett had her blessing last Sunday. It went really well-she looked absolutely beautiful and was wide awake for the entire blessing, just looking around without a peep. Unfortunately, I didn't get any really great pictures of her, but that seems to be the pattern when it comes to blessing pictures for me. I even attempted to take a picture of all three of the kids by myself (Spencer was still at church doing his calling), but that didn't turn out too fabulous either...

(note: these were taken post-church, so everyone looks a little wrinkled and mogli-like)

Country roads, take me home
To the place where I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads

I was looking at Georgia this morning and noticed something...when her hair is all flat from being slept on, my daughter resembles John Denver. It's more than a little disconcerting that my daughter looks like some old guy from the '70s.

I don't know if you remember me or not, but I lived in Stillwater from 2003-2005 and I'm good friends with your sisters. Anyway, we moved to KC in 2005, so if you have any questions about the area, feel free to ask me!

Yay for you and Spencer. Although, I am still mad at Spencer for not taking the Johnson Controls job - just so he knows! (just kidding) And I love Scarlett's dress.

That is exciting - but I was holding out that just possibly you might want to come back west...


Cute baby blessing photos!
