We had a whirlwind of a move. The house we found to move into was available right away, so we ended up moving within a week. Hiring movers (Tony's company paid all moving expenses) made everything SO much easier in most ways, but challenging too. It was nice not having to pack anything at all, but that made it a little more difficult when it came to finding necessary things once we got here. We are mostly settled in, but still have a few more boxes to unpack and I need to organize the garage. We haven't hung any pictures on the wall either. Honestly, we've been here a month now, but we have only had one weekend where we were actually home. We didn't get anything done that weekend either because Tony somehow hurt his back and spent the entire weekend laid up in bed.
I've missed this space. There's been so many things I wanted to write about, but had no computer (internet) to be able to sit down and actually blog. But let's be honest, I wasn't blogging much before that either! We've moved TWICE in just a four month period! Ridiculous. We've move three times in the last 13 months, and still have another move on the horizon when we hopefully buy a house in about a year, which better be our last move for a long, long while.
We made a not so great impression on our next door neighbors within the first day of moving in. Tony's parents were here on moving day to help watch the kids while Tony and I directed the movers on where to put things and worked on unpacking. At one point, I saw Ayden pushin his MegaBloks truck around outside. I commented on how that's supposed to be an inside toy, but let it slide in all the craziness that was going on. The next day, I unpacked the same truck out of a box of toys and wondered how the heck it had gotten packed back up. I didn't put too much thought into it though. I thought somewhere between the movers, the in-laws, and Tony, someone had just put it back with all the other toys. Well, turns out that the truck wasn't Ayden's! He took it right off our neighbors front porch. I learned this when the mom came knocking on our door a few days later asking if we might have her son's truck. ding, ding, ding! It all made sense then! I found the neighbors truck in our backyard and returned it. The mom was not very friendly or understanding at all. She wasn't rude, but she was nice either. I noticed later that they no longer keep any of their son's toys on the front porch at all. They also never smile or wave when they see us. It's kind of awkward. So much for making friends with our neighbors.
Other than moving, the biggest changes for us have been Ayden and Rylee! They turned 2.5 in June, and they are learning new things at a rapid rate right now. I'm going to do individual posts for each of them, hopefully this week.
I'll wrap this up by sharing that Ayden and Rylee were in their first wedding two weekends ago! They were flower girl and ring security for one of Tony's cousins. It was pretty special for us, because this cousin and her brother were the flower girl and ring bearer in our wedding almost 19 years ago! I know I'm biased, but I have to say that Ayden and Rylee were the cutest kids there! We were nervous about how they would do. Let's be honest, we were nervous how AYDEN would do! We were pretty sure Rylee would do okay, but Ayden is rarely still and does not like to be contained at all. During the rehearsal, Ayden ran all over the place! During pictures before the wedding, he had a major meltdown and wanted nothing to do with being in any of the pictures. However, he pulled himself together and they both did AMAZING during the actual wedding! Then, they danced the night away afterward. Is there anything cuter than two year old's dancing?
