The New House


Here is a picture of the new house ... of course this is before they put in the landscaping ... but you get the idea ...
Our moving story ...
The house took a about 3-4 weeks longer than planned, and we had a family living in a hotel waiting to move into our house ... so we had to move at the first opportunity ... that would be the day after closing ... that would also be the day of Todd's final (he has been taking online classes), and that would also be the day it decided to flood in San Antonio ... 5 inches of rain in one day ! It rained and rained and rained .... but we moved anyway ! Our movers we soaked we were soaked, as was all of our stuff and carpets ... it was a crazy day ... The rain of course also slowed down the movers ... which didn't leave them time to put beds back together, or even carry all the boxes to the rooms in which they were labeled ... So basically everything was just dropped off ... which made finding anything like an Easter egg hunt ... All the while, Ellie was very upset about all of this ... very dramatic ... But we are moved in now and thanks to some of our wonderful family ... most things are were they go ... of course I still have several boxes to unpack ... but we are getting there ... I will say that I have NO idea what happened to our iron ... I think I will just count it as a loss and buy a new one :) ... haha
