Ultrasound Day - Pink!

Asa called it!  He said he wanted another baby girl, but this morning he did qualify it, "but I still want to keep Ida too."

So much to be thankful for!  Breakfast at Nahptali's

Great Grandma and Ida Mae

Fun Kid Stuff

Adorable kiddo

More adorable kiddos

Kid Dessert

Amara's masterpiece was the most photo worthy

Fun fun day.  And I completely missed an October Breast Cancer post on my mom - but that fits just as well under Thanksgiving since everything is still clear!
Happy Thanksgiving!

where we are now

 This weekend we're moving into a rental (the place we're still hoping to get is off the market until the spring).  We've been living in some friends' basement, which has been a great interim but it will be nice to see a few of our old things unpacked for awhile!  The kids have been troopers through a very busy September though!  Mike had a few trips and a conference down in New Mexico (where his golf team came in first at the tournament, I'll go ahead and brag on him!), I had a bunch of weddings/flowers, Asa got all signed up to attend pre-school next year, and Ida broke my iPad!  Phew.  Looking forward to rain and fall! (And so glad Mike got me an iPhone so I've at least snapped some pics of the kids!)
 The kids have ended up doing a lot of sleeping in random places.
 And we've spent a LOT of time at Grammys!  Ida associates lunch with Grammy's house, or pretty much any time we get in the car.
 Fun pj times!
 Ice cream runs while Mike was out of town!
 And still being crazy kiddos.
 More car sleeping - we've spent a lot of time in the car this Sept/Oct!

We Survived

Well, everything made it into a box and out to storage one way or another! Thanks to a bunch of help from friends and family!  Seriously, how did we collect so much stuff!? Nothing like a move to make you purge.

We managed to squeeze in a quick trip to the fair  which the kids were thrilled about (and which is also likely where Asa picked up the stomach flu! My poor mom - we were at her house for that part of things! We seem to have a knack for getting the flu while we're imposing on other people's hospitality!) Things are a little more settled and healthy again and I'm loving the fact that we don't have to worry about any more showings!

(Ida lounged while we packed. It doesn't bother her that Woody's head is only attached by his bandana. She carries him around everywhere, body dangling.  It's especially gruesome when we find him in the highchair, head on tray.)

So the big news is that our house sold!  It'll all be final Monday morning and we're very excited, although we have no idea where we'll be moving to next!  
We got a whirlwind offer that wanted to close in two weeks, so we've been buried under boxes, speed purging and packing, and trying to find the next place to go!  As we try to throw a little work in here and there this poor blog will probably continue to be neglected for a bit!
