We've Moved!

Ahhhhh!  We finally closed on the house this past Wednesday!  I definitely would not recommend trying to move into a house mid-week, but that's what we got.  Luckily Justin was off yesterday and was able to get EVERYTHING unloaded from the PODS with the help of some buddies.  Thanks guys for all the help!  They were awesome to get everything done so fast and I must admit they put things where they belonged!  I confess, having to work while the guys were at home unloading, was a real test to my 'control freak' ways, but they did AWESOME!  No chipped paint on the walls, no chipped furniture, and the dining room is pretty much set up....and the hutch is actually centered on the wall!  I know...I was amazed too!

So...are we going to unpack this weekend?  NOPE!  We have better plans for the weekend.  My brother is getting married (to a wonderful lady I might add!) this weekend and we wouldn't miss it for anythng!  The house can wait...we're headed north bright and early tomorrow morning to join the family for the wonderful occassion.  Not to mention we are getting our boys back tomorrow also!  It's going to be a great weekend!

Have a wonderful weekend....I'll post pics of the new place once I clear a few boxes out of the way :)

We're Homeless!

Hey there! Yes...I've been MIA from the blogging world, but so much has been going on which leaves little time for computers in the evening. The holidays were wonderful as always and since then we've been busy packing up the house and getting things nailed down with the builder on the new house (which is more frustrating than I ever thought).

As of yesterday, we are to speak. We sold our old house (I'll miss her...she is a great house!), but unfortunately the new house is not ready for us. So, the boys remain in WV with Nana, Pap Pap and all the other cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. And we are in NC staying with some wonderful friends! We are so truly thankful to the McNeal's for letting us stay with them while the new house is getting finished. And we're also very thankful for our family in WV for keeping the boys and letting them have fun while we're out of a house and out of toys, etc. for them to play with. Without the help of everyone, we don't know what we would do! Thank you all so very much!

They are having a blast in WV...and probably even going to get some snow to play in! But we miss them already so we're definitely ready for the new house to be ready so our family can all be in one state very shortly.

Oh yes...the fact that we are staying at Aiden's girldfriend's house is sort of a secret. So please don't spill the beans. He was very upset last night when he knew we were at her house so we chose to change the story (ok...we lied) so he would not worry about the time with Hannah that he is missing. Plus, we definitely promised a big sleepover when we finally get in the new house. I think that makes up for lying don't you??

Take care and we'll definitely have pics of the new house when she's finally ours. Everything is scheduled for Wednesday, January 26th hopefully things won't fall through again. Prayers definitely needed because this momma needs to be settled and have her boys back with her!
