I'm sorry that it's taken so long to get back to my moving story. I've been busy trying to unpack, keep our lives going, and get back into our school routine (which could be a different blog post because I've noticed some things have changed in the routine since moving).
So moving day arrives.............We have friends lined up to help us move, and a box of VooDoo Doughnuts and a fresh pot of coffee ready (to keep them happy as our friends).
The boy spent a lot of time in and around the U-Haul, not wanting to miss out riding in one. I think that to him, this was the equivalent of meeting a celebrity!
Valentine's Day also fell at the tail end of the moving weekend. Knowing that this was going to happen, I shopped a few weeks earlier and had everything prepared so this "holiday" would still be celebrated. It's also rather nice after a big move, to get some new things for new rooms. The kids received lot's of chocolates, and new books (which was nice for them since their books were still packed and in storage) and trinkets.
French toast for breakfast! I didn't have anything to cut them into the shape of hearts, but I don't think that my family cared. French toast is always tasty, especially when covered in sugar!
For an afternoon snack, I bought a couple of red velvet cupcakes for the kids. I would have made them, however, my baking pans were still packed and I didn't know where they were. It's a good thing too, because I really didn't need extra cupcakes tempting me along with all of the chocolate candy that was still available in the house :)
