Halloween 2009

Aaron and I went to order our carpet today, while the boys went to Grandma's for a while. When we came back we got the boys ready for Trick-or-Treating. We had a quick dinner at Kathy's and then went out with our whole family in the neighborhood to get treats. Zac was so proud to get something in his basket! Alex was a Rock Star, Parker a Ninja, and Zac was a Giraffe first then a Cowboy. The girls were super cute too! Mya was a Cat and Kennady a Fairy. They all got more candy than they needed, but we had lot's of Fun.

Moving In:

Well, this is us moving in. We had to paint the bedrooms and lay new carpet, hang fans, tile a closet, clean up and cut some trees down. Oh yea, and take the shower out of the masterbath because it was leaking into the bedroom. We all slept on mattress' in the livingroom for 3weeks because we couldn't put in the carpet right away. We also discovered that we can't wash clothes here until we fix something with the laundry plumbing!!!! I am starting to miss the old house already, haha!

Packing is a Pain

June 2001 (3 months after moving in)

Ok, I am going to try and get up to speed here. We are moving in a week! I can't believe it. We have been here for 8.5 yrs. Alex was only 7 months when we moved in. All of our babies have been in this house. It's the only real house we have lived in. The 1st one that we ever bought and sad to say, we have finally outgrown it. We have buyers for our house and they are very excited to move in too! So I am praying that everything goes smoothly for next Friday. I pray that we like our new house as much as we have LOVED this house!

I am shocked at how much we have accumulated over 8 yrs! When we moved here all of our stuff fit in a tiny corner in the living room. Now every room is overflowing with STUFF! (Especially comic books, Aaron) We have had some really great times here and I am really sad to leave. On the other hand, I am excited about have 2.48 acres to roam thru and a bigger house. I know God has a plan for us and has protected and helped us find this house. It will be very different, and that is a good thing for my boys! I know that the reason we haven't moved before was partly fear and mostly packing, haha.... But seriously, Packing is a huge pain! Once you pack, then you realize that you shouldn't have all these things and I really don't want to unpack it. I am going to just use the same 5 plates, cups, forks, bowls ect....for a while because I don't want to unpack it when I get there! Anybody want to come help organize my new house?
