Well we got the house in Ashburn ~ and we are very excited. Richard leaves for VA in less than a week ~ the packers and movers will be here a few days after that and then we are outta here. We, the kids and I, will head to Jacksonville for Christmas with Jen, Jeremy & Charlie ~ picking up Richard at the Orlando airport on the way. 2 days in Jacksonville and then the four of us will drive home to Virginia together.
In case you are wondering, we are still in denial about the whole thing! It just seems so unreal! And I am ready for Christmas ~ not at all!!! We've already warned the kids, things will be a bit different this year. My car will have to hold everything the kids and I will need for the move PLUS all the Christmas gifts for them and J&J&C. It's gonna be a bit cramped! Presents are going to have to be small! I think some of their bigger gifts will be pictures of their gifts in little boxes wrapped up ~ to be purchased after the move. They are such great kids though, and they will be cool with that.
Here are a few pics we took of the new house. I'll post more once we get up there.
