we did it! two weeks ago our family made the big move to our new home. i spent the week prior to the move packing things up and labeling the boxes. below is a picture of the boxes of BOOKS! i used sticky name tags and sticky address labels on each box labeling which room to place the box in at the new house.
this was helpful because several of the boxes were from friends who moved prior to us and wrote their own things on the boxes. everyone who helped us just looked for the label.
speaking of help....we had LOTS of family and dear friends come out for the morning and afternoon to help us. our pastor even stopped over to pray with us that morning. the day was beautiful and spirits were high.
thank you a million times to our family and friends!!!
this guy here rocks! he is 13 and the oldest of 5. i love this family and we are so thankful for the
three cheers to this cute mama! we grew up together and she came with her 3 little ones and filled up the back of her van to help with the move. another friend brought her two adorable girls and helped too!
my dad (in the red) and more friends! we had about 15 people come out to help. amazing.
we are so blessed.
not only did friends and family come to help move...there were others taking care of our children all morning! the 3 big kids came late in the morning so they could participate :)
yikes!! the kitchen was the FIRST room to get unpacked and cleaned up....even after simplifying before the move i am amazed at the amount of stuff used in a kitchen!
okay....another huge blessing was this beautiful table of food set up for our family and all the workers!
one couple couldn't physically help that day due but the wanted to bring lunch.
they came, set up this beautiful table with a table cloth, fresh flowers, homemade sandwiches, chips, fruit, snacks and cold drinks. this was amazing!!
boone and me. he couldn't wait to start sorting out his books on the new shelves in the bunkroom! :)
master bedroom. the day of the move my dad was in charge of putting together the crib in the nursery and our bed. thanks dad! it was SUPER helpful to have this done and not have to think about it later that day.
nana and dancy making her bed up for the first time. my mom always has helped made up my bed wherever i have moved since college :)
here is a picture of our main family room.
i will be posting more since we are now connected to the internet!
thank you again to all our friends and family who helped in so many ways on moving day! we started at 9:00am and were done by 3:00pm. one moving truck with 3 men were hired to move the big stuff but i still thing being done by 3 was pretty impressive! :)
