Been a long time...

{ Monday, January 23, 2012 }
The Wallace home has been busy in the past 6 months. We have moved, renovated/destroyed losts of things in our new house, celebrated 3 birthdays and Christmas, and probably some other things that I've forgotten but hope to remember. So I'm going to try to catch up.

We closed on our new house on July 29th. Ethan went on a camping trip with Mamaw, Papaw, cousins, and aunts while Callie stayed with Nanny and Grandaddy.  I tried to count the boxes as we loaded them into the moving van, but I lost count around 147.
Just the beginning of the boxes...

When the kiddos came home from camping and Nanny's, we tried to have their bedrooms ready, but that was a harder than we thought.

All of the bedrooms needed to be painted, needed new carpet, then the furniture could be moved in.

Ethan's room before removing curtains (circa 1970), fresh paint, and new carpet.

Callie's room with 1970s curtains removed (see them on the floor?), but no new paint

We had only about 4 days to get semi-settled before we had to start back to school. The kids were great through the whole process. They adjusted well and really enjoyed the open space to run.

This house is a major work-in-progress, but we love it. It's what we have dreamed of having for our kids- space to run and play, wooded area to explore, fruit trees, plenty of room for a big garden, and even a pool (which wasn't in the original plan, but I'll take it!). We are blessed to be here.
