full house

So it has been kinda crazy round here. Which is my excuse for the lack of posts lately. I have a couple of crafty things I will finish up and post later this week:)
We have recently moved. Our house is still for sale but we are not living in it right now. It's a crazy story, here it goes...
Our good friends Jordan and Brittany bought a fantastic house this last summer and began flipping it. We have known that Bob and I will be moving somewhere for residency this coming May so we thought it might be a good idea to put our house on the market early in case it took a while to sell. Well good thing we got started early cause we have had no luck on selling the house and are hoping for our luck to change in the next few months. Anyways...when Jordan and Brittany first bought the new house they had a wonderful idea. It is a pretty good sized house (6 bedroom, 7 bath) so they told us that if our house just so happened to sell before we were ready to move for residency then we could move in with them in the new house. It's so big that we could have our own little wing. Of course I became giddy about the thought of us all living under one roof and couldn't wait for our house to sell. Well months went by and our house was still on the market. Jordan and Brittany finished all the remodeling this last month and they moved in. I couldn't take it. I was so sad that we weren't living in the house with them like we thought we would have been. So last week we decided to just move in anyway! We left most our furniture in our house to help sell it. Bob, Ella and I are now living in the east wing of the new house and Jordan and Brittany are in the west wing. The fun doesn't stop there though! Our friend Chris lives upstairs! Party house! Ella is in heaven. She is living with some of her favorite people and just runs around the house so happy all day. It has been such a blessing to have this opportunity and it will make our last few months in Lubbock that much more special. It is so great knowing that whenever a realtor calls to show our house I don't have to start throwing toys in closets to get it clean, and with McKenna getting here in the next couple of weeks (ahhh!) it will be so nice having people around:) Then in March Brittany will have her baby! Yep, she is pregnant too! So for a couple of months we will have two newborns and a toddler in the house. How fun (and crazy) is that gonna be! I love it!

We call the house "Casa Grande."  We had some family/roomie pics taken yesterday and they just make me smile (even though I'm so puffy and prego!)
