.::Move-IN Day::.

It's OFFICIAL....we're homeowners!!!
We have our keys and we've moved in! Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of the actual move INTO the house...kinda like how I forgot to take pictures of the move OUT of our apartment in Louisville. I've been a lil' preoccupied lately!!! :-) But here we are just before we headed over to our new house yesterday.
The last couple days have been say the least. Travelling across the country with two little ones, dealing with a 3 hour time change, not being in our own element or having our own things around, not having daddy around...all these things have taken their toll! I really couldn't be a single parent! But we're all back together now and we're in our new house. We've got a lot of unpacking and organizing to do...but at least we can get back to some sort of routine and schedule!
Oh and by the way...I LOVE my house!! :-)
More pictures to come of the fun little things we've been up to!

.:Moving Days & Goodbyes:.

I say Moving Days in the plural form because we packed up the truck on Monday and actually started the move out West on Tuesday. It was quite the process. But we're so grateful for wonderful friends who helped us out. We had several guys come help load our truck up, my fabulous friend and neighbor watched my girls all day and then fed us dinner that night. Kevin's parents were a constant support in loading and cleaning our apartment. It was a long busy day...but one that will hold memories forever!
For many weeks now, every time I would think about moving and having to say goodbye, I'd get emotional. We've made some really great friends in the 5 years we've been in Louisville and it's hard to say goodbye. Becky, I'm so sooooo glad your sweet little family moved into the apartment below us. We have loved getting to know you guys. I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful it was having such a great friend live so close by and having our kids be such good friends. We miss you soooo much already! Thank you again for all your help, especially the last few weeks while I was getting ready to move. I really couldn't have done it without you!
After all the packing was done, my dear friends, Waveney, Brinn and Sarah came and stole me away for a treat to say goodbye. It wasn't easy. But it was so nice to sit and visit and reminisce about good times. You ladies are wonderful!
Here's Kevin and his dad in the wee hours of the morning on Tuesday. I flew back to Arizona with my girls and my mother-in-law while Kevin and his dad made the trek driving our huge moving truck with one car in tow and driving the other car. I'm glad it was him and not me!!
It was pouring rain that morning so this is the best picture we could get of the two of us before we said goodbye to our home for the last five years!'ve treated us well, thank you for all the good times!
