The old neighborhood!


It's been 1 week since we moved to our temporary home and we have to say; We miss our old neighborhood. Hannah has so many friends there. We are trying to make sure we visit and let her play as often as possible. We took some cute pictures of Hannah with her little buddies! Now she can remember them always.

Check out the video below of Hannah riding her big girl!

No training wheels!

Look what Hannah can do!

I couldn't believe it...I had to see it with my own eyes.

Another proud Mommy moment!

Thanks Grandpa!

Grandpa e-mailed me what I thought are very cute pictures of the kids. They are probably the most recent ones we have. Moving is stressful and I got time to take pictures. So here they are.

Here We Go!

Lazy Summer Days....

I know its been awhile and I promised I'd do better. But I do have an excuse. We are moving. Many posts ago I wrote about our new home. Its near completion but not quite. Also,we have decided to keep our town home and rent it out instead of selling during this terrible housing market. We were able to find a tenant however they needed to move in before our new home is completed. We are about 30 days out. I was lucky and fortunate to find an in-law Apartment that we could move into for a month (Craigslist Rocks). So we are now in the process of moving to our temporary home. It's amazing how much Josh and I have acquired in our 7 years of being married. It didn't seem like much until we started boxing it all up. Speaking of boxes another great deal from Craigslist! I know...who knew you could get boxes on that site. Thanks to cousin Nicole for the great tip. We scored on about 100 boxes(assorted sizes) for.....$20! No joke! We feel very blessed that things have been working out so well for us. My other bragging point is we decided to store half of our stuff while in our small space so I went searching online for deals. I was able to get a coupon online for a POD. I saved 20% on that. I am loving bargains!
The kids are handling the change very well. Hannah has been a great little helper occupying Marshall while we pack.

In other news; We recently returned from our annual trip up North for the Festa! We had such a good time. It certainly made a difference with our new ride. Oh yeah, we are now the proud owners of a Town and Country Mini Van. Its awesome! I was so against vans for the longest time but you have got to see what it comes with. I am not going to go down the list of awesome features it has because I will be here all night. It definitely makes long trips way more bearable. So besides the drive up we had a ton of fun re-connecting with our family. We stopped in New Haven , CT and visited Chris and Ashley. They have the cutest Apartment and they were kind enough to let us crash there for the night. Hannah was so excited to have a sleep over at their house.

The Festa was as always great! Good Food, Good Music, and Good Company.

My work is keeping me very busy. I still love what I am doing. I can see myself with this Company for many years to come. We are projecting our revenue and company size to double in the next year. It's exciting to be in an environment where there is a lot of potential and job security.

Well that's all for now. I will post some pics of our cute Apartment once we get a little settled. I will also post some pics of our new house. We have some great photo's of the progress. From a pile of dirt to our lovely house. So stay tuned for that!
