Well, we've finally moved in. I still have boxes to unpack and closets to organize, but it's so nice to have a place of our own. It took an army of friends and family to get us in here. Ben's mom helped pack boxes for us and then babysat the girls while a group of guys from our Sunday school class, through sweat, tears and rain (I cried because of the rain), moved everything we own to our new house. In just 3 hours, we were done! Well, almost. My parents showed up the next day loaded down with more furniture that I had bought in Ft. Worth. It took another round of Sunday school guys to finish the job. Thank goodness for hard working boys and for Jennifer, who brought the pizza! The next weekend, our good friend Matt came into town to help Ben with the landscape. Actually, Ben helped him. Matt has an incredible eye for landscapes and with Ben's help, they planted 90 plants in one day. Whew! And it looks great! Thank you to all who helped out with this great process. This project has been my life for 6 months and although it's been fun, I'm more than thrilled that it's behind us.
Addi watched Mickey Mouse (her new favorite)
while we brought in boxes.
Sydney is pretty easy going these days.
New lights and sounds were enough entertainment.
Deer freely roam the neighborhood. Ben took this from our driveway.
