We got it!

We got our first house! I will post pictures and more details after the closing date  (Oct 12th).  Until then I have MUCH planning to do.

I'll be having a garage/moving sale on the 21st and 22nd.  Normally a garage sale would be too much work but we are going to be moving so we have a lot more than usual that we want to get rid of.   It's going to take some careful planning ahead of time to make sure it goes smoothly and hopefully everything gets sold!

I'm also preparing for our super long trip to California in two weeks.   Gage will be there for part of the time but Zoe and I will be there for a total of 19 days.  Thanks to my Master Packing Lists, I am pretty sure I know everything that I will pack and *how* we will pack them so thankfully that is all out of the way.  Now I just need to make plans for while we're out there... The first week is devoted mostly to Wedding related things, then I'll have 9 days to visit with friends and family!  It's a good thing because I don't know when I'll be able to get back out there.  I'm hoping it will be next summer when baby #2 is a few months old but we'll see.  Next Fall we plan to go to Disney World so it may be difficult to swing trips to both but that really depends on how many photo shoots I can do next year.

Speaking of baby #2, we have one month left until we find out the gender!  Seems like such a long time but I know with the trip coming up it'll go by pretty fast.  We have a girl name picked out but we're still sruggling with the boy name. I hope a name just sticks out to us soon! I'd love to know the name before we find out the gender. I'm at 16 weeks now! The baby is the size of an avocado (4.57 inches).

Zoe on the other hand is growing like a weed.  I'm not entirely sure how tall she is right now but she is beginning to be too tall for her 4T pants.  The 5T pants are way too big though so we'll just have to work with what we have.   She's growing up way too fast.  I can't believe she will be 5 in March.  FIVE years old!

Well now I'm of to make a list of everything to sell at the garage sale. Hoping I can get rid of a lot of stuff!!



Finding Joy in the Winter Months

For our family, this time of year is full of two things: celebrations and a slightly overwhelming sense of cabin fever. Both Gage and I cel...
