Hubs company has always moved up in the past,

but it's always been a "you pack it, we'll move it"

kind of deal.

This time we got packers!

It's an odd feeling to be happy I don't have to pack,

and still want to do it myself!

Mimi, who is the family librarian,

couldn't stand to have the packers box up

the books, because she has them organized just so,

and she ended up doing them all!

Babycakes is not pleased that these big guys

are touching his house,

so we're definitely getting out today!

After today, we should be completely packed,

and ready to move!

Sprayground Fun

We met our friends at the sprayground this week.
 Last time we went here Babycakes refused to

go anywhere NEAR the water.
 This time?
I couldn't keep him out!

Party Time-Birthday Edition

Princess had her birthday

just a few days before our move.
 She wanted a Doctor Who theme,
 (which was kind of fun to plan!)
 and to invite some friends over,
for a quick birthday party!

Catch Up

We're still here!

We had 5 parties in 8 days

and house painting

and pre-moving

(yes, that is a real thing!)

and chaos

so I fell behind,

so I'm catching up.

Well, catching up for a moment,

because the moving truck comes NEXT WEEK!!!

Park Day

Our homeschool co-op

schedules park day throughout the summer.

It's a nice way for the moms

and kids

to get together for some fun and

I'm gonna miss this!

Big Boy Bed

Babycakes has been out of his crib for quite a while

but we didn't want to put him in  a twin,

since his little legs are so short

he could never get in it by himself,

and putting himself to bed is

WAY to nice to give up.

SO, he's been sleeping on a mattress

on the floor for months.

We were planning on rearranging beds

once we'd moved,

until today.

 How could we say no to THIS?

Found by a friend on Craig's List,

and too good to miss!

We were supposed to be closing on our new house


The movers were scheduled to come


But at the last second, the bank

let us know they didn't have their act together

and our closing has been delayed

for up to TWO WEEKS!

I'm SO frustrated!


And also, secretly,  a bit relieved.

This gives me a bit more time to

visit with friends,

attend our church

and relax about packing.

It also gives me some time to get some painting done

in the kids new rooms.

Unfortunately, if the bank isn't ready

in two weeks,

we'll loose the house!

Convos with My Two Year Old

Me: What do you want for lunch?
Babycakes: Rice.
Me: I don't think they have rice.  What else do you want?
Babycakes: Rice

Daddy: Come look at this worm
B: Ewww!  Yucky!
Daddy: No, it's not yucky, it's cute!  It's a baby worm. Here, touch it.
cautiously touches, squeels
B: A baby?  A baby worm?  I kiss it!
The kids told him he was out of gas.

He thought they said grass

and spent the rest of the week stuffing grass into the gas flap.
