Moving!

Hi!  As you are probably aware, we moved last Friday.  Our new house is awesome so far!  We love the location, set-up, modernish feel, etc.  No photos of the new place yet (wait until we've painted and organized), but here are a few from the last week in our house on Sussex.  It was an emotional week for all of us.  Finn cried a lot (he's totally fine now) and it was hard for Mickey and I to leave the house where two of our kids were born in the dining room.  Without further ado, here are the photos.

We all camped on the boys' floor for the last few nights.  It was hard to stay on the beds:












4/5 of us sleeping.  Mickey chose to sleep in a different room on a camping pad that night:












Moving night pizza dinner in our dining room - complete with "kid wine" (aka sparkling juice) and ice cream sandwiches:












For closure, we buried a rock under the boys' favorite climbing tree.  It says, "we lived, laughed and loved here 2007-2011."












Finn digging the hole:






























We also traced the boys' hands in the closet and had them write their names.  Finn helped with Odin's, since he was not into participating.


















Our new house is ~1 mile from the old one, so we didn't go far.  A young couple bought the house and are very excited about it. We hope they enjoy it as much as we did and it brings them much love and happiness.
