Our address changed :)

It's official! We moved in to our new home this past weekend and we are slowly starting to get settled. We absolutely love it and feel God has really spoiled us! It's an absolute dream home to raise our growing family in and we just love everything about it.

The move itself went great, thanks to my hubby, dad and brother for working so hard all day. I've been busy unpacking boxes and getting things organized. I've been having fun making multiple trips to Target buying some little things to make our house a home and it's really coming along so cute. My dad was over yesterday and hung most of our pictures so that was nice. One of our dear neighbors at our old house that goes to our church came by to see it and said he would paint the family room for us as a housewarming gift. So nice! We are only wanting to paint one wall to bring some color to the room but still - so very nice of him! He'll probably paint sometime next month - I can't wait :)

The kids are absolutely loving the house. They have so much room to play and it is so nice to have carpeted stairs again. It's also nice to not have to worry about Gracelyn on the stairs. She does great on them and seeing as they are carpeted and there's just 5 or 6 stairs, a landing, and then another set it's perfect with little ones! No steep wooden stairs like our last place.

The basement has also turned out to be one of the kids favorite places to play. I had the idea to bring in their outdoor cars/bikes and they absolutely love riding on them in the basement. It's not finished so it makes it fun for them to play on the concrete with their bikes. They love it and it's nice on the cold winter days in Michigan or when mom doesn't feel like chasing them down the street outside.

I went to Home Depot today to price out getting the basement steps padded and carpeted. It's something we want to do since they are going up and down them so much and they aren't real safe for Gracelyn. They are coming out to measure on Thursday and they said it will be a few weeks to get the carpet in. So, it will be nice when they are padded and carpeted for the kids.

We are waiting on our fridge, double ovens and washer and dryer to get delivered...hopefully by the end of the week. We are living out of a mini fridge right now and I'm ready to be able to cook again and not eat out so much! The house is coming together though and we just love it!

I turned on our double sided fireplace yesterday (all by the flip of a switch!) when the kids were napping and sat by the fire, watched a show and ate a few oreos with a glass of milk. It was wonderful :)

In other exciting news, we find out if baby Harrison is a boy or girl in just 9 days!! I can't believe it. It's coming up so quickly - I'm getting excited to know! I've been feeling girl lately...and had a dream that we were at the ultrasound and the tech told us it was a girl. We will be thrilled either way and continue to pray for a healthy baby.

Just wanted to post an update on the move....I'm off to fold some laundry and unpack more boxes. Thanks for reading friends!
