Moving Day!

We've been busy this last month and looks like it won't slow up quite yet. We are officially homeless for a bit and close on our new house Dec. 17th. Then there will be lots of work to get done so the house is ready to settle in. The pictures here are of all our wonderful help the day we moved out. Like Patty's bowl? We all grabbed what wasn't already packed up to eat our lunch with.
Thanks for all your help everyone!! Couldn't have done it without you!

All the ladies were doing their hair fancy for Thanksgiving dinner and Addy got in on the action.

What happens when it rains during the winter. So beautiful and amazing. Even every little blade of grass was covered in ice.

Maybe they did need to nap!!

I had intended for them to take a nap but it did not go as planned. Nap time has become more and more of a struggle. One problem is that Addy is no longer in a crib so to get her to understand she needs to stay in her bed and rest can be a bit of a challenge. Then there is Axel who knows better so he stays in his bed most of the time but he asks Addy to go get this and that for him. So I come down to a room that is a mess. Well yesterday..while they were suppose to be napping I was running around getting some things done. After about 45min or so had passed Addy comes and finds me with no diaper on and a strong smell of poop. Upon further investigation I realize she is covered in it. So into the tub she goes to get the scrub down. I dread going down to the bedroom to see where the explosion took place but on I go. There is Axel sitting in the mist of it saying I cleaned it up mom. Sure enough...he had went through a whole tub of wipes and a couple diapers. There was poop covered wipes everywhere and smeared poop in way too many places. It took a while to get it all cleaned up and after I had little energy to struggle to get them to take a nap so I said no nap today.

Later that evening I was making supper and I yelled down to Axel since the kids were being a little too quiet to ask if everything was ok. Axel said, "yeah Addy's ok she's just sleeping." I came downstairs and the above pictures are what I found. Then while Axel was suppose to be eating his supper (I was upstairs nursing Gavin) he laid his head down on the table and fell asleep.
Good to know that my kids still need their nap no matter how much they struggle and protest.

Playing at the park.
Picnic on the couch. Axel and Addy had already eaten supper but I hadn't yet. So I grabbed my sandwich and went downstairs where everyone was playing. Next thing I know Axel comes over with a plate of food to eat with me. Oh and Addy couldn't be left out.
Axel was being rather goofy this night. Every time Kent and I would laugh about something he would laugh right along with us but had no idea what we were talking about. It was pretty cute...I ended up laughing so hard I was crying.
Story time.
