Finally here and settling in...

Just thought I would share a few pictures of our house as we are getting it together It has been a whirlwind of a week. We moved into our house last Thursday and have unpacked over 16000 pounds of household goods, thanks to Chad and his "we got to get this done" encouragment. Seriously, I probably needed it though... when the movers left and we had all these boxes filling our floors I could have died but we really knocked things out pretty fast.

Our house is great, we have lots of room. Taylor and Aiden are with my mother in law right now so we have had time to get things organized without them. I am really anxious for them to see their new place. We tried to make it special for them. Taylor is already signed up for a music/drama camp next week and soccer starting in Fall. Sports is really big out here which will be great for our family.

How is the midwest compared to NJ? Well, much slower that is for sure but I guess that is a good thing (at times). I think it will be a good 3 years, people seem to be happy here. St. Louis is 12 minutes from here so that is a great thing as well.
My friend Maggie has taken me out to the Cheesecake Factory and shopping... what more could a girl as for!

Well, I hope to put more on here soon and start blogging again. I need to get my business up and running. Hope you are doing well! Don't mind the messy pictures compared to 2 days ago our house is a palace. Hopefully in the next week things will be totally put in their places. Miss you all!

I forget...did you guys buy or are you renting or is this base related housing??

We can't seem to sell our house so I'm in an extreme panic at the moment wondering how we are paying this mortgage and finding a place to stay there. Can't stay behind with the girls until it sells as Cierra starts 9th grade - credit classes. Ugh!!!!!!

Wow!! You have done a LOT of work in just a week!! I really like your house! We are hoping to be moving to Sacramento in the next couple of months if my husband gets a job there. But I don't look forward to packing up and moving all by ourselves with 4 small children and all their stuff!! I'm sure Taylor and Aiden will love their new place!!
