On December 23rd, we had an inspection on our home. We hadn't expected to pass, and our builder kept insisting that we try not to get our hopes up. However, we were surprised and thrilled when we were told that we could move whenever we wanted! So we went back to my parents' house, packed as quickly as we could, and spent one more night as my parents' tenants. On Christmas Eve, we spent the day at my grandma's house, and then drove to our new home to spend our first night on air mattresses, setting up our miniature Christmas tree, and waiting for Santa! On Christmas morning, we excitedly opened presents, and spent the morning in our pajamas, enjoying our new home! Movers came the next day, and we've been attempting to unpack ever since! It was definitely a Christmas we will never forget!

|Yep, this is the best picture I could get of the girls at the party. Madelyn still has not come to appreciate photography!|
|Eric and my dad admiring Lillian!|
|Lillian's First Christmas!|
|Santa found our new address!|
|Thankfully, McDonald's was open Christmas morning for our breakfast coffee!|

So now, we are thoroughly enjoying our new home. We are still drowning in boxes, haven't put a thing up on the walls, and are using plastic cutlery because we can't find our spoons... but we are very happy!

|It took us weeks to get through the laundry in our new home!|
|Yes, we do have a new pet - Mr. Bunny!|
|The girls love playing with Mr. Bunny. Too bad they don't love cleaning or feeding him!|
