Update and a Birthday!




My baby girl, Perry, turned 1 year old today. It's hard to believe but it's here. She's walking and jabbering, and just a joy to us all.

Last I wrote, I told you I lost my camera. I am looking at new lenses this weekend so I can get my Nikon back up and working. The old lens broke back in July and I had been using my point and shoot... which disappeared on me earlier this month. Sooooooo.... hopefully I will be back to posting regularly once I get that purchased.

A week after I got back from New York, I got a call from the relocation company and they wanted to get our big move done before Thanksgiving. I was given TWO DAYS NOTICE that the moving truck would be at my house to load up our things. It was frantic. It was chaos. But I got it done. A few days after everything was packed up, the girls and I loaded up the Explorer and made the big trek up to New York.

So here we are in a hotel room waiting for the house to be ready for move-in. Our household goods arrive Wednesday (the day before Thanksgiving) and we will be out of the hotel on Friday and living full-time at the house. Can't wait! You should see the kitchen. I am so excited. I will show lots of pictures!

I hope you all will continue to be patient with me while I get through this period of transition. Thank you thank you!!
