This Thanksgiving I am especially thankful for the people of Nashville!
I cant even begin to describe how kind and generous the folks are here.
Today at the grocery store I was greeted by NAME and introduced to a employee from AZ. Seriously everybody just cares about being friendly and building relationships!
Every guy tips their hat, and in a polite way.
I decided Mia only can marry a boy from the south:)
I love our ward, we had so many invites for Thanksgiving.
I was in charge of rolls, moms Chocolate pie, MAshed potatoes and bacon water chesnuts. It was actually pretty fun trying new things that our different peoples traditions.
The South knows how to cook!
Even though someone dropped my pie, I couldnt be mad at them because they were too nice!
We then sat around the fire and listened to singing and roasted marshmellows.
It is so beautiful here, so green and open.
Myles and Mia loved going on tractor rides and playing with all the kids.
I hope when I leave NAshville that a part of NAshville stays with me:)
Ice is something everyone should do! Im sad I didnt take more pics inside, but they keep it at 10 degrees, and I wasnt taking my hands out of my pockets.
Everything is carved out of ice from Santa and his sled to the Nativity scene.
Myles and Willie slid down the ice slides, and Mia was loving all the characters.
There really is so much to do here, Im hoping we check out the worlds biggest aquarium in Georgia during Willies Christmas break.
Dear Mom and Dad,
Thank you so much for letting us live with you the past 18 mon. It was honestly such a blast. I will treasure all the wonderful memories there. You taught me so much! Like how to make the best sunday roast, mashed potatoes/gravy dinner. I learned how to put a belt back on the vacume. Willie learned how to mow a perfect lawn.PERFECT.
Myles will miss his rough housing with Grandpa and Mia will miss the nightly dance parties. All the times you knew I was going to pull my hair out, you knew and would save me. If it were taking them on a walk or playing the piano for Mia. I Thank you!
All our movie nights and ice cream eating. I now have nobody to eat the pistachios out of the blue bell icecream so I dont even buy it now.(probably a good thing)
With tears streaming down my face, I just want you to know we are forever changed for the better and miss you alot! As for Dad being superman and helping us with the move, I feel so blessed to have the relationship I do with him. I dont know very many that are as close to their dad as I am. I know Willie will miss having him to talk to every night. He already misses his gym buddy. I always wanted to marry someone as humble as my dad and I really did. The two of them were the best of friends.
Hurry and come visit
sooner then later
We love you both so much!
Home sweet home! We love our little condo, We have never lived anywhere so long on our
Myles at Berry Chapels Pre school, Tues-Thurs 9-2 . There is a church on every corner here, such religious folks in the South. Love it!
I flew to Little Rock with the kids to meet Willie, my dad and the Waites. They surprised us at the gates, I balled my eyes out. It was so nice to have them help us move in.
I had so much fun decorating our little place, I was on Craigslist the whole month before we moved. I even busted out the oil paint and made the painting. It was so fun, Im working on another one right now.
We checked out one of the 6 Paul Mitchel Schools that Bill and Donna own. Super cool, and great spa!
2 hours from Nashville, we stopped and got some good ol southern BBQ
***I recently discovered Instagram and love everything about it. Mostly because Im lonely and love the instant responses. It makes me feel like Im having conversations with people besides my kids.
So if you have the iphone look me up! rachwaite
unfortunately it has made me put the blog on the back burner.
This picture cracks me up! Myle didnt feel good, but didnt want to miss out on the fun. He just made a little bed by the master carver
Fun night with the mom and sisters to Ipic. Favorite theatre. recliners, blankets, pillows, popcorn-heaven for a long legged girl.
Mia is becoming quite the lady
Myles already misses his sweet cousins, we send videos daily!
We really were so spoiled by the Halls. Natalie is the most giving person I know.
Myles woke up one morning with a stiff neck and we wrapped it with a towel so it would hold it still. He made me laugh so hard, we would tease him and say hurry "look" just to see him move
Our Sunday baking at its finest
