We are outta here Charlotte!

We just accepted an offer on our house! I don't want to jinx anything, but if all goes well, we will be closed on Feb 27. I am rather excited to close this chapter in our lives. It does not mean I won't continue to miss all of you in Charlotte terribly, but I do think what I can do with all that extra money comin back!

It's like just yesterday she was only 3

Riley turned 4 yesterday I can't believe it. She is getting so big! We baked cupcakes together. I took one lick of that batter and felt sick. She must have eaten the whole thing.

Uncle Greg, Auntie Lauren, GaGa and Pop Pop came over for dinner and cake. Riley got a little too close to the candles and burned her lip while blowing them out. I think she was too embarrassed to admit it actually hurt.

It's Beginning to Feel a Lot Like Christmas!

Nothing makes me feel more in the Christmas spirit than being at my in-laws. Everywhere you look there is somthing Chritsmasy. I mean every corner, every nook, every shelf, every wall. I love it! Not to mention the Christmas room (which stays up all year long) with PopPop's train set and Christmas Village. I wish pictures could do it justice!I think Riley will always remember being at her GaGa and PopPop's house for Christmas.

Our New House

Finally, pictures of our new house. These are just some pics of the inside. I suppose a professional would not have left the big load of laundry at the bottom of the stairs for the picture huh? That is my Mom in the pics too!! I do love this house. I am so happy to be settled! Please come visit!!!!

Winter Wonderland!

Riley and I got to play in the snow for a little while before it turned to rain. We didn't quite get enough for sledding, but we had fun throwing snowballs to the dogs. They couldn't understand why they couldn't find the "ball" after it hit the ground. It is raining outside right now. I can't think of anything worse than a cold rain in the winter. I would much rather it snow. They are calling for snow on Christmas Eve. We'll see......

We are in the new house. I will post pictures soon. I have been such a slacker. I like to think it is because I did not have my computer for a while, but that really isn't it. I have been unpacking like crazy though which I HATE! My mom has been here for 2 weeks and goes back on Staurday. I am so sad. She has been a Godsend. She helps with Riley, cooks, cleans and does laundry!! I also thought it would be fun to have everyone (14 people) over for Christmas dinner. What was I thinking? I guess it motivated me to get the house in order, but now I have to cook. I am not that domestic. Oh well, at least its just family.
Merrry Christmas everyone! Check back for pics of the house.

Finally....but not quite!

We were supposed to close on our new house this Monday, November 24. Jeff and I have been counting down the days. Of course, even though I kept telling everyone it wouldn't happen to us.......they have to postpone the closing. Our carpet is coming in late, and they can't so inspections. Soooooo, we are not moving in before Thanksgiving. We have plans to go down to Charlotte and retrieve all of our stuff over the turkey day weekend. I am keeping my fingers crossed, that we can be in the house (with carpeting) by the time we get back. Otherwise, the movers are going to have to drop everything on the front lawn. Other than this fiasco, we are all doing very well. It is so cold up here already. They are calling for snow this week! I don't know what I am going to do for the next 4 months or so. I may never go outside! Anyway, here are some new pics of Rileyreading to her fish Bob.
