Besides moving I have Vivi's first dentist appt., another egg hunt, shopping and preparing for a wedding shower here this weekend, baking for playgroup, a garage sale, packing, moving, grocery shopping, cleaning, Mops, and a road trip w/ the kids to San Antonio. Whew! I am tired just thinking about all that. And aside from that we bought a laptop computer with the money we have made from Craigslist and so until we get Wireless set up at the new apartment, I will not have internet axcess. :(
So I am signing off...with tears in my eyes...*sniff*
Just kidding, but seriously I will be back soon with more pictures, stories, and updates than ever as I try to catch up after my blog hiatus. Bye, Bye Blog Buddies!

The Thursday before Vivi's birthday was the school's spring carnival/egg hunt/fund raiser. They covered all their bases! The kids all got to hunt for 12 eggs, play in bounce houses, eat lots of free popcorn, cotton candy, and snow cones, ride the train, and do a petting zoo. We got to buy raffle tickets for really great prizes, which sadly we didn't win any. It was so windy that day and a bit too chilly for the spring dress I had Vivi in- good thing she had a sweater on. She never left the comfort of her stroller and blanket. Isaac loved seeing his teacher and the school mascot!

Doesn't Vivianna look like such a toddler in these pictures?! Today it really hit me that she is growing up. We took her bumper pads and crib skirt off to be washed in an effort to sell our lamb nursery set on Craigslist and we also took off her changing table from her dresser. (We are keeping all furniture for our next baby, and I am hopeful that atleast one of my children will get a gender specific nursery!). So now her room looks really different. But the biggest change came when we sold her rocker and ottoman! This is one of many things we have to sell so we can all fit in an apartment. We posted it last night for $50...apparently this was way too low because by today we had 26 emails of different people wanting to buy it!! So we said we would take the best offer and it was $100. Yeah!! I think we got the chair on sale new for $130 so that was a great deal! Here is the chair corner BEFORE
And here it is AFTER
A kitchen, living room, and garage fit for a little girl!

Two days old

Please pray for his Dad to be healed, for the surgery to go well, and for him to be able to eat and walk around. Right now he does nothing but lay there trying to sleep. Also, please pray that Billy's travels will be safe.
I am nervous about him being gone even though it is only for 2 days. As you know, we have two very active children and it is tough to go that long without another adult around! I can't even shop with them these days because no grocery cart seatbelt can hold Vivi down, she wriggles and pulls to standing non-stop, and Isaac constantly talks! I have noticed lately I am at some store almost every day because I can never concentrate to remember everything I need!
Thanks for your prayers! I'll update when we get some significant news.

Here is our floor plan (minus the annoying fireplace)!
**UPDATE!!! Less than an hour after I posted this, they called and said we were the easiest approval that particular agent had ever had. Billy dropped off our stuff around 1:30 and we were approved 2 hours later. YEAH!!**
We found several HUGE icicles

The inspector and termite guys were here for 2 hours, checking out the house for the buyers. Those are some dedicated guys.
Vivi is not sure what to make of this cold stuff coming down from the sky.
It was pouring snow! She lasted about 10 minutes and then went in to Daddy and a dry pair of pajamas!
