One stall in our garage is absolutely filled with bags of stuff to wash & unpack. I am going very slowly to make sure it is all clean before it comes in. I keep saying "one lazy mistake" to not properly treat or wash something or one decision to be cheap (and keep a flea-egged chair, etc.) and all of our hard work was for nill... It's hard because I want to keep everything... like our beloved leather rocker... but after throwing out all of our couches, rugs and beds, why should I keep that one upholstered item that sat on a flea infested rug?
The boys are doing great. They love the new house too.
My parents were here for a week and literally worked from 7:30am til 8pm every day, nonstop with the exception of a break for Thanksgiving dinner. Hard working people, those folks!
And speaking of hard working people, you would not believe the help we had from friends and family. The Emmer's took the kids for multiple nights & even brought us food! Uncle Tim helped in a million different ways - moving, kid care, etc. My sweet friend Jono came over and must have put in almost 20 hours of sweat labor - painting and putting together ikea furniture. Josh came over one evening and painted... If any of you read this -- A HUGE THANK YOU!!!!
Lynn & Fishpa arrive. Lynn becomes a nanny. Fishpa morphs into "Fixpa"
This is our breakfast nook card table!
I didnt take a lot of pictures at the Emmer's for Thanksgiving (too busy enjoying relaxing for the first time!) but see if you can spot Nana in this one!
