Mom and the kids and I will be over here tomorrow to pack up the kitchen and take a load back. Then, the menfolk have to move a few more large items and I'll have another load or two and we'll be done!
Well, done with moving. We women know that all the hard work starts once you're moved! LOL!
Plans for today!
~Call utilities and get them switched to our name. (This may or may not include internet service, so I might not be back for a while unless I post from my mom's.)
~Load up my truck.
~Call my nephew Kevin and have him come over and load up his vehicle.
~Head to Canby and unload
~Head to storage unit and load up both vehicles as well as my dad and my brother, Cody's.
~Unload at the house
~Repeat until storage unit is empty! :)
~2:00 go to the fairgrounds and pick up my photos and layouts. Ask about the picture of Norman. (I think it might be going to the State Fair!!!)
~2:30 take Audrey to her 4 month check up
~Head back to Silverton and pack more stuff up
~3:00 Andrew gets off work and will pick up a trailer from the realtor
~4:00 load up trailer, unload in Canby
~repeat until we're too tired or it's too late in the day
It's almost eight now so I've got to go! It's gonna be a busy day! :D

The family is seriously thrilled. Granny has clocked the distance between our two homes and we will be less than four miles away. She is so excited! :D
This is our new house. Well, it will be the end of this month. :)
Here's our shop. (Andrew loves this!)
The shed/dog house/dog run.
Now, we're back to that door in the master suite. It's a ginormous walk in closet. It's almost the size of a bedroom and it has a window! This is going to be my craft room. There is a closet between the master bedroom and the master bath that houses the washer/dryer. Andrew is going to move those into the garage and that will be our closet.
We just don't have that many clothes and I do have that much craft stuff! LOL!
The house also comes with a goat. Yep, I'm getting a goat, finally!!! His name is Chuck but I think we're going to call him Cleatus. LOL!
Now for the giveaway!!! Since I'm so excited, I thought I'd share the love. Leave a comment here and you'll be entered in the drawing. Your comment can be anything you want. But please make sure that there's a way that I can get a hold of you. :D This contest will be open for entries until our loan funds. LOL!
Oh, you want to know the prize, do you? Well, it's a collection of five little stamp sets and some kraft journaling spots. (I'll post a pic of the goodies later!)

She's still a great baby. Wakes with a smile and does almost everything else with a smile, too! Including spit up! I've started calling her Pukey McPukerton because she does it so much lately! I think she's making up for the first few weeks of her life when she only spit up once or twice a week.
She takes a little while to get used to new people and won't do it at all if she's in a crowded or noisy situation. She gets all upset and starts crying and finally gets handed back to me. She'll yell at me for a few seconds to let me know how ticked she was and then boom! back to normal. She also doesn't like strong perfumes/colognes and if you're wearing them while holding her...look out!
The funny thing is, if the person she won't let hold her, puts her on the floor and just makes faces at her and talks to her, she's fine. She'll coo and babble and smile for all she's worth. She's just such a happy girl and so much fun to be around.
She's truly brought happiness and joy to my heart. :)

After that, we walked the strip of shops that line the highway and did all the things I wanted to do as a kid. :D We had ice cream (Tillamook chocolate chip cookie dough), watched salt water taffy being made, and bought some for Mickey's Hawaiian cousins to take home. We also sampled a little of it ourselves. Mickey is not a fan. :) Then we found a couple of machines to smash pennies and bought some caramel corn. Mickey is a fan of caramel corn!
All in all, it was a great trip! My sanity was helped by the cool temps, Audrey loved all the time in the Snugli, and Mickey had a lot of fun. I love the coast!
