Long time no blog!

Hey there! Boy it has been a very long time! I don’t even remember the last time I sat down and even thought about blogging!

Lot’s has happened since my last post. Well, let’s see… I guess really just one main thing happened.. I moved! It was a lot of work. I feel like I packed for months and yet I was still frantically throwing things in boxes at the last minute. We moved on Easter weekend and then had the “family” over for dinner on Easter Sunday.. Crazy I know! but my wonderful sister in law did all the cooking at her house and brought it over. My brother in law helped with hanging some things on the walls so it didn’t feel quite so just moved in.. My Mom came and helped me unpack my craft room a bit and was there for general moral support during the “day after”. We have been so busy with the kids and their activities and such that it has taken so long to get things put where they need to be put. We are far from done but also far from where we started and I am so grateful.

So I think I will start with a house post and then show you what little crafty-ness I have been up to..

First up is the new house! I will show you some of my favorite things about the new house..2011-04-19 13.24.49

Isn’t it cute! Not a great picture but you get the idea. I love that it is Yellow!

I love this! It is right inside the front door. Beautiful huh?!

I love the floors! Cherry. SO pretty. I also love all the space.. I can’t show you space but it is there and I love it.. Now for the things I don’t love…

2011-04-19 13.15.48I don’t love the funky pink stained carpet.. This is after a professional shampooing..

I love the dog but not the funky raised garden and all of the bark left over from the old play structure.. both have to go!

First non-rainy day I did just that… well as much as I could anyway…

Now I need to get a flower bed dug out so I can put the soil from the garden in it.. and bring in some fill dirt and sod for the old play structure area.. still lots of work.. The “girls” like their new digs though.

I used some of the bark to level their house and begin the new run.. We still have to build the new enclosure but it will be nice when it is all done.

That’s all the time I have for now.. Next up… Inside pictures.. semi moved in..See you soon!
