We're in Georgia!

Yep, we're in our new home and working our way through boxes.

We had a wonderful transition into GA with Mindy and Wendy's help. We stopped at Mindy's house as we crossed the Tennessee/Georgia border, spent the night and couldn't even get the 2 girls to leave! No, Mindy was her super energetic self and offered to take kids for the night if they wanted.. and of course they wanted! And she took on the dog too!

Here's some happiness for y'all (look... I put in y'all for y'all ;)

The boys waiting .. ahem.. "patiently" :) for Mindy's caramel rolls.

And they were delish... just as everything else was... Yum! Thank you Mindy and John!

Alec came with us to the Gainesville/Cumming area the next day, where he decided to stay at Wendy's for a night. It worked out perfectly since we had an early morning walk through of the house and then closing later that morning.

As Tim and I finished up the details with closing on the house and getting our animals into the house, Mindy/Wendy and crew went to this great place. I'll be going next! Mindy shared about the day here.

After the kids had their fill of swimming and rock climbing we all met up at our house. We hung out, ate and pretty much just reveled in this coming together.

Just wonderful.

And... can anyone guess as to what these crazy people are doing?

A BIG thank you to Wendy and Mindy's families for the welcome and help through this time of transition. It was a happy joyous time for all of us!

Welcome! We can't wait to see y'all. : ) These pictures are great. What are they all looking at in the kitchen?

I'm so glad that you made it safe and sound. Usually moving isn't so fun along the way. That is awesome it is for y'all.

Sandra Dodd said...

I'm glad to know you're there hale and whole.

If you're not ready to take photos of the inside of the house yet, how about at least views from the outside? What do you see out the front and back doors?

Deanne said...

Boy, *joyous* moving - what a gift! So glad that all is well with y'all. Be sure to let us know when you're heading down to Disney. ;)

Were y'all looking at your reflections in the shiney new fridge, or were you trying to use your mental powers to open the door?

Man oh man...have I told you how much we love your family??? I hope the boxes are slowly and lovingly getting unpacked. We miss you guys already and can't wait till we see you again! We're so happy you're in Jawja!

So exciting!! After you get settled you will have all those wonderful new places to explore!!

As far as the fridge, we saw there was a little sensor for the light on the water dispenser area. We thought if we stepped back out of the reach it would shut off. It didn't *g*, I now see it's a light sensor. I think if you have it on that mode the little light comes on when there's no light on in the kitchen. It was pretty funny at the time :)

And I'll have pictures up soon, looking from the front and back door!

Wow! You folks are a whirlwind of activity! And fun!

I'm glad that everything was good in moving. Have fun unpacking, slowly.

We are so incredibly happy to have y'all so close to us!!! It's already been a blast! We're looking forward to many more days like the ones we've already shared.
