Mess, mess, mess

Well, we are officially in our new house! We spent our first night last night and are headed to the bed for the second night. Our old house is cleaned out and we said goodbye to it yesterday, and our new house is a MESS, MESS, MESS! You know how it is after you move in...where is this, where is that? In a box? What box? Where is the box? No one knows any of these answers! But a ton of work has already been done and we could not have done it without the help of our family and our good friend Bart Ives! Even though most of the boxes are not unpacked and the house is a mess, all the bedrooms were painted today which is a huge task done! And after these nasty curtains were all taken down, the rooms looked 100% better! Too bad wallpaper is not as easy to take down.
Our little Avery Grace has been a trooper through it all. I could sense a few days ago that she was really needing some normalcy once again, but though she has had her whiny moments, she has been great. She has slept in a different place for just about every nap and nighttime, but as long as she has had her dee-dee, she has been fine. Thankfully tonight we found "Elmo Horsey" a DVD she has been begging to watch, but we just couldn't find it! As much as I hate to sit her in front of a DVD, you need a distraction for a 2 year old when you're trying to unload boxes and unpack! She is excited about her new house and the most excited about her new "stairs!" I had to buy a baby gate to keep her from going up the stairs because I am afraid she will fall down them when I am not with her!
Hopefully we will have some new pictures to post soon of all the updates of the house, but for now just wanted to post an update of our status!

We love the house! I know there is lots of work to be done, but just think how great it will be when it is all finished! Let me know how I can help.
