That's right - we're moving to another part of South Fargo. A home that has more space and 3 bedrooms on one level - can't wait!! This past weekend we spent moving things into the garage of our new house and now all that's left is some cleaning of our current house and a walk-through tomorrow and then Thursday morning is closing of both houses. In 36 hours from now, we should be standing in our new home!

It's been such a whirlwind last couple months. So much fun and so much work! As I sit typing tonight, there is 2 mattresses, a pack-n-play, a few clothes, a recliner, this computer and a small TV left in the house. Tomorrow night after kids are in bed, everything we don't need Thursday morning will be put in the trailer sitting in the driveway - waiting to go to the new house.

Look for pictures to come soon . . . I hope! We've been so blessed to have so many of our friends and family help with this move and can't wait to share the new house with everyone!

Easter 2010

Samantha had her 1st Easter and it was such a beautiful day! The boys were able to do their egg hunt outside . . . I don't remember a time that was able to happen! We spent the day with my family at my parents home. I would have to say - a good day had by all.

some of Samantha's firsts

Her 1st haircut - which, yes - should have happened much sooner than it did, but I was dragging my feet. The poor girl couldn't see past her hair any longer. So - the first haircut was done by Mom at home (and she's since already had another).



So - she's now tried green veggies (peas & beans), orange veggies (squash, sweet potatoes & carrots) and fruits of bananas, pears, peaches and applesauce. All the fruits were a hit and the sweet potatoes were well received also . . . all the others - not so much.


maybe a little tired of the camera in her face . . .

And when she turned 6 months old on 2/5/10, she got to test out the exersaucer - and it's STILL a hit! You might be able to tell by the smiles :)

guess which is her favorite toy to chew on?? :)
