Moving & The Last Part of February

We are moving! And Ry wanted to help pack.
But then got tired and fell asleep in his sister's bed.
We celebrated Valentine's Day as a family.
Dylan reading a book to Rylan.
I was sitting on the floor watching a movie and both the boys came and sat in my lap. {melt}
Dressed for church!
I said to Chris (in front of Payton), "She (Payton) really is cute huh?" Payton piped  up, "Yes, I'm adorbs!". Where does she come up with this stuff?

It finally warmed up enough to wear flip flops to get the kids from the bus (then it cooled right back down - boo!).
Our landlord let us start moving things into the garage before our lease began.
The house is the next city over so we just filled up the van and dropped off a load whenever we could.
This is the same van that Chris and I drive (we share one car). I thought the bumper sticker was perfect for us... Maybe we will get one for our van!
We found out about The Burger Shack. Supposedly the hamburgers tasted just like In-N-Out.  And guess what?!?!?! It DID! Holey moley it was SO GOOD! It was awesome to have a taste (literally) of home.
Here's our new (to us) rent home!

We did our walk thru a week before our lease began and our landlord said we could move in that night if we wanted to. So we started cleaning and unpacking stuff into the house.
The kids started playing and making it "home".
Ry now "hides" by covering his eyes when he gets into trouble. {I love it! So cute!}
Monday the movers came and moved the furniture.
And Monday night we spent our first night there! The kids loved the jacuzzi bath.
This is in my laundry room and I have NO idea what to do with it. Any ideas?
Rylan has been off his schedule with this move . . . Poor baby!

Yes, that is vomit. He threw a tantrum while I was driving and gagged himself to MAKE himself puke. Fun times.
"His mercies are new every morning . . ." I guess mine should be too.
Isn't our Creator just amazing?
Finally having our first home cooked meal at the house!
Rylan brought these to me. I guess he wants a smoothie????
Sweet Payton had a hard day today. It was her teacher's last day in her class. Payton's regular teacher, who was already out on maternity leave by the time Payton started school here, comes back Monday. Her teacher made them these adorable Lego heart necklaces for them to remember her by.
I love my crazy kids!
I cannot believe March starts tomorrow. February just flew by!

What's Been Happening Lately?

Watching a peacefully sleeping baby.

Listening to him sing this song over and over. I can't get enough of it!
Wishing I could remember this before I open my mouth. . . always.
Drinking my FAVORITE ice tea.
Melting while watching Payton ask Daddy for a pretty dress (with her puppy eyes and thru the store window).
Getting a Hello Kitty toaster from Auntie D!
Putting together Valentine's decorations.
And getting a old picture texted to me from my sister . . .
(Two of her daughters, Priscilla & Penelope and Dylan & Payton - they were so young!)
Eating spaghetti like a crazy man.
Enjoying a warmer day.
Celebrating the 100th Day of School.
(Payton's class dressed up as 100 year olds.)
Going to Munchies with Mom at the kiddos school.
Walking Payton to her classroom door.
Hanging out with this guy.
Starting to sleep train...taking pictures of my success (after taking him back to bed at least 100 times).
Snowing for a little bit and it melting even quicker.
Having success again at nap time!
You know . . . all those things which equal living and enjoying life and ultimately being grateful for all of God's blessings!
