Did I mention that we moved to Amarillo??
Well, on January 4th, we packed up the van with the rest of the stuff the movers didn't pack, and Dave, Crew, Halle and I headed on the road. William and Hudson stayed behind with my parents for a few extra days. It gave them some concentrated time with Mimi and Papa, and gave me some time to get the house set up.
This is how Halle feels about moving:
And this is what it looks like between Fort Worth and Amarillo:
Crew was pooped after a day of "helping" me unpack boxes:
One big bonus of moving: the movers ruined our 10yr old refrigerator, so we totally banked and got this nice, new, fancy fridge.
We have a guest bed! Come visit! But don't bring your large family... :-)
Before unpacking for the day, I had to snuggle with this peanut and get warm....it was 9 degrees the first morning we were there!
Crew was a little needy...
and a little destructive:

Crew helping me with Taco Soup for dinner. We've been eating a lot of soup around here this winter!
So, by the time the big boys got here with Mimi and Papa, I had gotten a large chunk of the house unpacked and mostly organized. My mom helped me for 2 days hanging things and forcing me to get the whole house ready to go. It's a tiny house, but we like it, and we like the character of it. And one of the biggest reasons we got it: it's 2 houses down from a HUGE park with a splash pad, basketball courts, tennis courts, Amarillo College (which, the boys LOVE to ride their scooters over to and explore), and a "rose garden".
