Busy Few Weeks

It's been very busy around here. We decided a few weeks ago that we needed to find a new apartment. Our apartment has served us well over the past year, but the rent is too much and more space would be nice, so we started looking at apartments and Freddy T. found one for us a few weeks ago. We've been busy painting and tomorrow I'm giving it a thorough cleaning so we'll be ready to move everything over the next several days. Our goal is to be completely moved in by next Monday, lots to do! The new apartment is great! Great kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a balcony, a courtyard for residences to use (its a small building) and the best feature... a washer and dryer! No more of this! I'll post pictures once we are all settled.

The kids have had several baby sitters over the past week or so letting me get work done on the new apartment. They do great with new people coming in an staying with them. Today a girl named Kat came, Jack had never met her. I told him a girl named Kat was coming and she was going to play the matching game with him. He smiled real big and said "Is the doggy coming too?" I knew he would be confused! I laughed and explained that it was a girls name not the animal. Too funny...

Here are a few pictures over the last week or so.



Not a great picture of Jack, but he piled up a bunch of pillows and got cozy reading on top of them.
Lillie and Jack working puzzles together one morning.
Elliott was playing with toys while Jack and Lillie worked puzzles. He would have joined them if he knew how to get to them... it won't be long!
Lillie learned how to sit like her cousin Karlee and she's clapping.

Do I see big boy underwear on your big boy?! Doesn't feel like a pay raise when you are buying diapers for one less child?

Love Lillie clapping and sitting like that :) Ditto what Katie said about the pay raise! Haha! :) Elliott is beautiful! Is Jack excited about moving.Has he seen the new place, does he understand what/when is going on? So glad to hear they are comfortable with the loving kind sitters. Have a nice day! Blessing! Apt sounds wonderful! :) Yay!

I just love seeing new pictures of the kids. Jack is getting so big. I told your mom the other day that it is strange to me that I love the twins so much and I've never even touched them. I could reach through the screen and squeeze them. We sure do miss you and Freddy T here in Clarksville.
