Happy Birthday!

Cody is 7 now!  He was sad we weren't having a party but we took him to Movie Park instead so he was happy.  Of course we didn't tell him about it until we got there and he was so surprised!  It was the first time any of the boys had been to Germany so that was awesome too!  We were there for about 5 hours and then came home and opened presents and had cake.  Now there's a chocolate cake in my house that I can't resist and I've already eaten 2 pieces today :(

Thank you Great Grandma for the book and the card!

Blew them all out!

Moving In!

Only had to wait about 4 days after moving in the house for our stuff to come.  It feels like we're missing so much since this house is way bigger than the one we moved out of!  Even with the boys toys it seems like something is missing now that they have a whole room to play in and tons of storage! 

Here are pictures of the moving truck and our house on that first day.  Things are still getting organized and put together so once it's donw there will be more pictures!

Testing out the fireplace!

Now it's on wheels

Apparently they work smarter not harder
6 crates full

Now it's not

Searching for Elmo!

The toy room.  I unpacked most of it but Cody finished it off.  I guess he got tired of waiting.

Organizing the kitchen. 

We thought there'd be way more than this in here! 

We still need to get the boys new beds and some cabinets and a kitchen table.  We ordered our couch last week so that will be here in 5-12 more weeks.  Then we have to figure out how to get it home since they don't deliver.

Pumpkin Day

Brice and I went on a field trip to a pumpkin patch with a big group, but we got there too late and they had already picked all of the pumpkins.  We just chose from the giant selection in the garage! 

Pictures as promised

Here are pictures from the festival we went to a few weeks ago.

Today the movers came and brought all of our stuff!!  They took avout 4 hours to unload everything, including union breaks and a lunch break.  The movers from our friends house were done way early so they came over to help our movers.  They had a cool truck that lowered all the way to the ground, I took pictures and will post those next week when we get our super fast internet. 

In a big house it doesn't seem like we have that many boxes, we thought our whole sun room would be full.  There must be more stuff in the garage than I know about because it feels like we're missing so much stuff!  We pretty much started unpacking as they were unloading and have been going non stop.  Neither one of us wanted to stop because the other one was still going so we went longer than we wanted!  Now we're both so sore and Brandon is bored so he started on the office.  I actually think we're about 80% unpacked except for the toy room.  We're going to get a glass cabinet from Ikea to put our mugs and the frogs in. 

A lot of these boxes are completely random and have things from 3 different rooms in them so that's fun! 

Tomorrow I think we're going to go order our couch, and we still need to decide what dining set we want to get.  At least we have our camping chairs, and our rocking chair that we always forget about!  I'm so glad it made it over in 1 piece, it's older than I am!
