We had a great Thanksgiving weekend! Chance took Wednesday off and he only had to work a half day on Friday, so it seems like we had an extra long, beautiful weekend.
We celebrated Thanksgiving with some of the great friends we have made here in Austin. Cori set a beautiful table and we all pitched in with the food. It was a great afternoon!
This is Gwen, she and Leo might get married some day.

Saturday we went to the temple and took turns with Leo. It worked out great and it felt so good to be able to go, I love the temple. 
It was a beautiful day to spend some time outside!
I can't believe we are leaving Austin in a week. We have had some great experiences here, with Leo definitely topping the charts. Chance has some interviews in northern California in December so we will see what happens, but for the time being we will be living with our families. Here is to a week of packing all of our belongings for the third time in three years, I am hoping this will be the last time for a few years!

5 months at the zoo!

Happy Thanksgiving! Yesterday we celebrated Leo's five month birthday by going to the Austin Zoo. He had no idea what was going on, but he loved being outside and we enjoyed reading each of the animal's story on how they were rescued. The zoo is unique in that they only have rescue animals, including the biggest pig you have ever seen... ever.
crazy big pig, this picture does not do justice
Leo means lion
Leo continues to get cuter (and chubbier) every day and we are so grateful to have him in our life. He is sleeping better (after a rough few weeks of sleep training), talks all day,  gets hyper in the evening which is hilarious to watch, loves to grab at our faces, and is just so so smiley. We love our little boy!
