New

One of the things the kids were so excited about in the move was their new beds.  They picked out their own bedding and couldn't wait to sleep in it!
 And Selah didn't get a new bed but she finally got her room back to herself!  Just the way she likes it!
 Maeta really wanted a princess canopy over her bed.
 You can see how excited she was!

 Snuggling under the canopy!
 Snuggling in my bed...
 Trying out our new reading couch...
 My grandparents gave us their piano.  We had it moved in and the kids got right to playing it!

Moving day!

We are having a wonderful time in our new house and we are so thankful to be here!!!  We had a great move in day with a lot of help.  It made for a fun day with all the help we were given.  I feel so blessed.
 My mom and dad both took the day off of work to come help.  They brought breakfast and our kids!  And stayed the ENTIRE day painting, cleaning and organizing.
Here is my mom cleaning the carpets...
And my dad turning the pink room grey.  He painted this bedroom and our master bedroom.  I love how it turned out and am so thankful for his work!
Debbie brought lunch...
 The kids were very patient and had a blast running around all day!
 Chelsea was on vacation and still came to help scrub cabinets.  I feel so loved!
 Soren helping Nana paint...
 Mom and I



 Dustin did such a great job organizing the garage and getting everything in the house!
 Sami was there!
 Alicia came in the morning and cleaned carpets, and then came back at night with Jessica to wash bathrooms and organize.  At one point these two started grabbing sheets and putting them on the beds because the kids were melting down.  AND they both brought dinner which fed us for the next few nights!
The next day Nick, Drew, and Debbie came to help move more boxes in.  

We are so thankful for all who helped us move.  I can't believe what a process it is and am so thankful for all the help!

2 weeks in between...

We had 2 weeks in between houses when we moved out of our town home and before we closed on our house.  So we stayed with my parents and loved every minute of it!!! The kids loved living with Nana and Papa too!!!  Here is some of the ways we filled our 2 weeks.

Staying 1 night with G'ma and G'pa Williams.  Dustin, Soren, and Maeta stayed the night in the motor home!
