We're Heeeere!

Today we arrived at our new home. And it only took 7 days of driving to get here! We stopped in AL to visit C's family for a day, in a change of our original plans to ski in CO. Mother Nature did not like that plan, and we benefitted from taking the southern route across the country. Tomorrow we prep the house for the arrival of all our stuff on Monday. And Tuesday we will spend our first night in our new home. I can't wait for my bed!! The cat was amazingly great as a road tripping feline and she is settled in the house for the night, glad not to see the cat carrier or car again. The girls were great travelers, as well, with E only complaining about being bored about 50 times. Seriously, we had a good trip. We had fun collecting keychains from the states we passed through and learning how to spell them all. A learned to spell Mississippi as we were crossing the river into Memphis! We really know how to make learning relevant! ;-)

I miss everyone we left behind and E has to call all her friends every day to tell them she misses them. I don't really want to think about how I am going to feel when I no longer have so much to do to get settled in. :-(

I'll be back with pictures and more thoughts after I get my computer set up in the house. Later alligators!

Hooray! You made it safe and sound!

Of course, I was pretty assured that you were getting along just fine from Emma's daily calls, but still, it's good to hear from (read) you. :)

Welcome back to the east coast! Looking forward to visiting you all in April :) Glad the trip went well and that you'll be settled in soon.

Welcome back to our neck o' the woods. Hmmmm, is it too early to plan a playdate? ;) Seriously, though, maybe we can talk you guys into heading up to the farm once the weather's a bit nicer and there are some babies around.

Glad the trip went well!

You're home! Have you gotten your stuff and gotten settled? We certainly miss you guys but hope you're having fun.

PS Would you fix your "feed" already so I can add you to my reader or add a subscription box so I know when you post?? LOL

Hey there! I wanted to let you know that I enjoy reading your blog and pop in now and then. Glad you made it to your new home safely; it sounds like you'll have lots of friends there too.

emm-eye-crooked letter-crooked letter-eye-crooked letter-crooked letter-eye-humpbacked-humpbacked-eye as I sung in the mulberry trees at my neighbors house in Omaha, Nebraska. I still Mississippi that way now. Congrats on your move. Change can be so invigorating. We are moving this weekend, but only 20 miles or so.
