Well, a lot has happened in the past few weeks! We got possession of our new home, moved in, closed on it and tore down the old. I type that all in one easy sentence, but the reality has been exhausting both physically and mentally. We are thrilled with our new home! The space is WONDERFUL! The kids are adjusting well and it has immediately felt like home for me. Perhaps the fact that we designed and thought about every square inch of this place, as well as being through it many times a day helped with that fact.

Today being Thanksgiving and thinking about what I am thankful for, I can't help but be grateful to God for the gift of this place. I am also so thankful for all of my dear family and friends that have been SO helpful.

I leave you with this great photo taken by my dad. Unfortunately, our last limping camera died on the day of the demolition :( so I have no photos of my own (but I do have video). It is of our old house literally biting the dust in the shadow of our new home.

I know it's got to be beyond exciting to have your dream home, but it must've been sad to watch your old one be demolished. It is awesome the way you can see your new house behind the old. It seems to say, life goes on, and they're are great things ahead for all of you. Happy Thanksgiving, and congratulations!
