Catching up...

i hope you all had a great christmas and a safe and happy new year! i've been without internet or phone for 3 weeks and i am so behind. the last time i blogged my life was centered around these.
LOTS of these...
we made the decision to move before christmas so that the kids could enjoy christmas morning in a new home. a little crazy, well, in hind sight, a lot crazy. but in the end, it was wayyyy worth it! although shawn may not agree, especially when his to-do list looked like this. (he did his very best, gotta love him!) we had planned on moving the weekend before christmas, however, due to rain the men decided to move on a tuesday night after work. our good friends, the riddles, were our life savers and with their help, the furniture was moved in one drizzly tuesday night.
the days that followed were exhausting, for all of us. one afternoon i walked in my room to find nolan curled up on the edge of the bed fast asleep.
and i cracked up when we woke up sunday morning to a poor attempt at toilet papering. in the defense of whom ever did this, it was raining.
i am grateful to the friends who helped us and brought us dinners. i am so very grateful to my mom who watched the kids, attempted to make dinner in a make shift kitchen, and who helped me, in spite of my crazy hubby! thanks mom!
so bare with me as i catch up on the last 3 weeks. so much to blog about, so little time!

Moving is so hard. I swore, the last two times, that I would never move again. I really hope this time it is true. Hope your new home brings you the happiness our's has.
