movin' on up!

well, we're here. we're in the new house. we've been here since Wednesday, and i am just now able to sit down, upload my photos, and share our photos! bear with me, this will be a long post {mostly for my own memory...}

we closed at 9:15 on Wednesday morning. then, we loaded up our "stuff" and went over to look at the house and get some pictures, of course!



{we had some church girls with us at the time, too}







girls' bedroom...

master bedroom, with Liv in mid air!





the "unfinished" room...



daddy's office...

lower family room...

under stairs storage, also known as "the secret hiding place"...


I wish I would have taken photos of moving day. it was quite the fiasco. rainy, cold, muddy and icky. we were incredibly blessed to have the help of our amazing church family. the move took about 5 total hours of back and forth, back and forth, etc.

after the move, we went back, as a family, to pick up Piper (ha!) and to say goodbye to our old house. it was more emotional than any of us thought it would have been...


so odd to see it empty. no more memories of us there, at all...{except the purple wall...ha!}


in this photo you can see Avery starting to come towards me in tears...it was an emotional meltdown, and then the water works began for this momma too...


daddy tried to comfort her, but she just needed to cry it out. Liv was not affected at all. she is her same ol' 3 1/2 crazy self, and is going with the flow...








{tear...} the girls room....







then, back to the "new house". it was late already, and we were all spent-emotionally, and physically. we found what we needed to get by for the night, and then we all sat and watched daddy put together the girls' bunk bed. they ended up falling asleep right here, watching daddy! Of course they were moved, and we survived the first night. Avery even said, "I think I'm used to this room now."


Thursday morning, no phone line, no television....just the four of us, in this new house, with all this mess....


daddy got their bunk together!


the master bedroom still has a loooooong way to go. Our king bed will be coming in a week or so!




Piper is doing fine. Fine, as in after 1 minute in our new house, she pooped on the carpet. She's learning her way around, as we are. She really enjoys the deck!


so, that is moving day for us. we're knee deep in work around here, so not sure the next time I'll be blogging!

So fun to see the process. I did the same. Pictures of the old house empty, new house empty and new house with things everywhere and the process of getting things put away. keep em coming!
