All moved in!

I just posted most of this on Facebook but I realize there are a few loyal readers who don't have a Facebook account....( So this one is for "the rest of you"!

We're all moved in! Yay! It was much harder process than I thought it would be and I'm glad it's over. :)

(yes, the curtains and light fixture will soon meet their end....or better yet find a new home via Craig's list)
The day we officially moved out of our old house we went over to say good buy to our old rooms. It was really sad to me. It was mine and Preston's first's where I brought home my babies from the hospital. :( sadness.

Bye bye Chase's room.
Bye bye Ava's room. :(
OK I'm over it.

We had fun putting up our Christmas tree last night! They were such big helpers!
Chase was a pro!
Ava wasn't exactly a pro but she sure tried!
Daddy taking video.
Mommy helping with the ornaments.
Then after the kids went to bed I arranged it fit for a home with a 1-year old! Top half only!
I don't think so!
Moving boxes make for great fun! I've hummed the "pop goes the weasel" song about a million times today. It never gets old....well at least to them it doesn't.
And I just added this one in b/c I think it's super cute. I tried to get a cute picture of Chase too but he would not have it.

I thought you might enjoy this before some of the wallpaper also meets it's end. This house was built in 1976 and I don't think it's been updated since. (We purchased it from some of our best friend's grandparents so I'm not making fun of Apoo and Grandmommy...I mean, I'm sure it was da bomb back in the day.)

Anyway, here's the kid's bathroom (yes, it's metallic):
Master bedroom:

And my personal favorite; Chase's room. Notice the curtains are exactly like the wall. :)

I never thought I would see that bathroom wallpaper ever again! When the Millicans moved into their house in Tulsa one of the bathrooms had that except instead of green it was a full on rainbow. If I remember it was REALLY hard to remove. Good Luck!

Wow, didn't know you guys were moving. Same town? It looks like you have a lot of work ahead of you removing all of that lovely wallpaper! ;)

Didn't want your Dad to feel alone...still haven't joined the world of Facebook, so very glad you still posted "for the rest of us". Congrats on the new place!

Man, that's the main thing I remember about Luke's grandparents' house is the green bathroom. Enjoy taking all of that down. :) Glad y'all are all moved in!

We are with you-my husband moved all of our things while we have been in TX. We have lots of unpacking to do in Jan. Can't wait to see the after pictures :)
