This next picture is my living room and the only room I have pretty much unpacked. My mother in -law came in town yesterday to help me out. I love the laminate wood floors. It makes it so easy to move furniture in place. We only tried out a bazillion different ways until we came up with this one. Thanks Lori for your input too!Now, so you won't think I'm super woman and have my act together completely. Here is the garage full of mess I still have left to unpack. I figure I should have everything in its place right before it is time to move again in January. Remember we are renting this house for 9 months and then moving back to our home that never sold last year. Got it? Good, because I don't.
See that mattress in the background. No, I'm not making my kids sleep on the floor or anything. It is just that the girls are sharing a room, so Annie's bed is staying in storage (my garage storage that is). * I just want to send a special note of thanks to all of our family and friends who helped us move. We couldn't have done it without you!
In the midst of packing and getting ready for our move, last Saturday I helped my family and some others throw my niece Stephanie a fun baby shower. It is her first baby and we are so excited for this new blessing to arrive. Deacon will be his name and he is due in late June. Here is Steph in the middle of my girls. Ashley is 7 years younger than Steph, but almost 7 inches taller. Ashley is already 5'7'' and I don't see signs of her slowing down.
Here are all the hostesses with Stephanie. From left to right: my mom, me, my cousin Paula, my cousin Cindy(the one who owns this yummy coffee shop), Stephanie, my cousin JoNell, Steph's aunts Diana and Renae, and my aunt Connie. She received the cutest gifts for baby Deacon and we had such a great time celebrating.
Here is a picture of Ashley and Annie with my sweet mother-in-law. I can't tell you how much I love Skip's mom. She is the kind of mother-in-law everyone dreams of having. Thank you Linda!
