We are in!

We are finally in our new house! It has been one crazy week. We closed on the house on the 5th, moved most everything over by the 7th and just finished getting the rest of our stuff from the apartment yesterday. It has been so great being in our own place with lots of room and the kids are loving it. At this point each kid has their own room and when the baby is born, depending on what it is we will bunk it with one of the kids. And yes, I am still very pregnant but only 5 more days to go!

We have such a wonderful neighborhood and some awesome neighbors. Many have come by to meet us and people have brought over brownies, freezer jam, and zucchini bread. Lots of ward members have been by to visit and we feel very welcomed already. The kids really enjoy their new school and we are anxious to go to our new ward tomorrow. The only bummer part of this move is that I haven't been able to do much in the way of lifting and putting things away. All I can do is direct and tell people where to put things.

We have had such amazing help from family and friends! Dave's brother Kyle and his wife Lindsay came to help us pack and move. I don't know what I would have done without the wonderful help. Kyle, Lindsay, my mom, my sisters, friends, new ward members, Greg Edgar, and my dad have been so willing to give of their time and efforts. My good friend Sherry come over one day and brought me my favorite salad from Bajio's and painted my fingernails and toenails. Dave and I have been quite humbled with all of the extended help from everyone. Thank you, thank you!

I will post some pictures of the house later. I have got to get as much done as possible to get the house ready for the baby. I am not able to do much but I have good girls that can be my arms and legs. I appreciate their help. Love to all!
