New Year, New Address...

It has been just over a week, and I am already so far behind I feel I will never catch up. Typical of me, I know...falling eternally behind. Doug and I are both back in school, the girls are as energetic as ever, and life just keeps on moving along - whether we're ready for it or not.

As an update, we found a rental home in East Costa Mesa; unfortunately, we can't move in until the 1st of February. The house is old but it's really cute and Doug and I think it will be perfect for our new life back in So Cal. It's a 2BD/1BA, plus dining room (which we plan to use as a play room), plus "alcove" (which was previously used as a bedroom, but we plan to use as a guest area). It's not the largest of homes, but it will fit our family's needs just fine.The best thing about the house is the location - it is just down the street from the elementary school, a huge park, only a couple of miles to the beach, and about 10-minute commute from Doug's work. Here's a pic (borrowed from the craigslist posting, I'll take some with my camera next time we go down there)...

Fortunately, my parents have been kind enough to let us stay with them until the house is available...I cannot say enough how grateful I am that my parents have opened up their home to us for this long. I'm afraid the girls and I have given mom and dad a run for their money, but seeing as how they survived raising 7 kids, I am sure they will survive our little family of four. I don't know if we'll ever be able to repay them for their kindness, but that doesn't mean I won't try!

Anyway, enough of sharing my thoughts...I'm sure you aren't here to read my ramblings. To let you see what we've been up to, I'll be posting some recent pics of the girls and some scrap pages - it's been a while since I've shared anything (sorry), but I hope you enjoy catching up with us!!
