Deeder, Carly and I spent the day at our new house. I brought my camera along to get some snaps of us in the place empty. As long as it doesn’t last too long eating on the empty kitchen floor and napping in sleeping bags is fun and ought to be remembered.

We were also supposed to be finding perfect places for household items, unpacking small things and mapping out where we would like the big stuff.

As you can see in the pictures we brought quite a few of the kids play things from my mom and dad’s house–we ended up doing a lot more playing than we did organizing.

I have a lifetime to get this place in order, right?

Starting small, I got the two children to get together in the living room for a picture together…




They spent hours playing, with a break of a half hour nap and brief snack. I got a couple pictures of them side by side again as they were having another bite to eat while we waited for my mom to pick us up for dinner. I’m glad they snacked before she came because the minute they were in the car both were asleep. Deeder never woke at all, and five hours later he’s still out cold in his bed fully dressed.



Our time at the new house was great with the exception of Deeder smacking right into a pointy corner in his bedroom. I took this picture of him and I hours after he thwacked his head so the wound doesn’t look nearly as bad as it initially did.


Tomorrow our new refrigerator is going to be delivered. When that comes we’ll go food shopping and stock up to live here forever and ever. :)

Then someday we’ll buy a table. In the meanwhile…we’ll just appreciate having the refrigerator.

Funny fact: We thought we’d save money by getting dial up rather than high speed internet. Guess what! Dial up isn’t available anymore.

    I’m sure the no dial up thing will be a blessing in disguise. I know I would go CRAZY going from high speed to the annoying sound and snail speed of dial up!

    The pic of you and Deeder is so cute! Except for the scrape on his forehead of course.

    So, tell me when you want to go paint searching. Maybe we should map out some color schemes you and Darren like this weekend, and then next week I could stalk the free sections at the ReStore in search of them?? Also, right now at the dollar store they have rollers and handles and paint dishes. then again, Dad maybe has all that already.
