The cat's outta the bag...

So I've been given the ok from my hubby to spill the beans... Wisconsin here we come!! That's right- we've been prompted and led to move to the cold, cheesy state of Wisconsin. My dad and step-mom and 2 younger brothers live up there (and my step-mom's side of the family) and they've given us an amazing offer and opportunity that we would be stupid to refuse. It's gonna be a huge change and we're so sad to be leaving our other family here in AZ behind but we know it's the Lord's will for us and we're excited for this new adventure- this new beginning. The area is Lake Geneva area which is right on the Southern border of Wisconsin and only minutes away from Illinois. So we're only going to be about an hour north of Chicago and about an hour away from Milwaukee. It's beautiful up there and I'm excited for Baily to be able to experience 4 real seasons. We're gonna freeze our hineys off but I'd much rather take that than the blasted AZ summers! So even though it's a bit scary and sad, we're ready. Besides, my favorite food is cheese so moving to Wisconsin should be a no-brainer for me right?! We're headed up there in a U-Haul Nov. 17th and then Robert will fly back and stay with his mom for a while until I find a job and then he will come join us. Hopefully that won't take too long. And then'll all be one family in the great cheese state. So Wisconsin watch out 'cause here comes the Dominguez family!!

Wow Sara that is awsome! Moving was hard for me but I have to say that I really do love change. It is a challange and not fun at times but for the most part I love getting to know new people and finding out new things about my husband, girls and even myself! Your family pictures are so cute, you look beautiful! Sorry I didn't do the thing you tagged me for, I know I am lame, but oh well!

Sarah, We moved out of the 61st ward to live in Colorado Springs. The 4 seasons are awesome. One way to combat the cold: Heated matress pads. They are expensive but SOOOOOOOOOOOOO worth it!
