Soon to be Texans!

 Saturday, July 18, 2009

We are Texas bound! Here are some pictures of the boys getting ready for the move :)

We are super excited about moving to the BIG state of Texas. We will be living in the Dallas area! We are not sure what city, as neither Chris or I have ever been to Dallas! What a change it will be. But it will be a great move for us. And Connor is excited about shopping for a house.
Apparently, we can't stay in one place for too long...in 5 years will have made the move from Washington to Missouri to California back to Missouri and onto Texas.

We will be moving sometime the end of September-yikes...just over two months away. Lots to do in those two months-wish us luck!
Here are some random things I have learned about Texas/Dallas:
10. Texas has 15 kinds of rattlesnakes.
9. More than 25 major cities in Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas and are a 12-hour drive or less from Dallas.
8. Dallas has the ninth largest population in the nation.
7. More than five thousand wildflower species grow in Texas.
6.The average year-round temperature ranges from 55 degrees F to 76 degrees F.
5. Texas is larger than France, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland and Luxembourg combined.
4. Texas has only one natural lake, but has more lakes than Minnesota.
3. The frozen margarita machine was invented in Dallas.
2. The Dallas area is the largest metropolitan area in the nation not on a navigable body of water.
1. Texas’s native horny toad is actually a lizard and can shoot blood from its eyes.
***By the way, this is the 100th post...Yippee! Hope everyone is enjoying all the pictures and updates***

So I missed out visiting you in St. Louis. Boo. Oh, well I guess I have to go to Dallas. Um, you didn't mention spiders, just rattlesnakes, so there aren't any, right?! :)
