Tomorrow is the Big Day!

The day has finally arrived. As of tomorrow, we will once again be homeowners! When I began the countdown to closing I thought it would never come, but like all things, it has finally come. We are very excited!

Our realtor has a moving truck that they allow they buyers to use for free (besides gas) so we are picking that up first thing in the morning. Then we are headed off to our storage unit to pack up our belongings into it. We then have our final walk through at 2 and then closing takes place at 3. We are hoping to begin moving into the house around 4. We hope we can get A TON done on Friday evening because I have class all day Saturday and Heston has to be at LBC for 2 bastketball games. We know it will all work out and we are so excited to be in our own home. I even think Phoebe is excited. She is use to it being just her in the house and not having to be around dogs.

I will be sure to post pictures once we have them. Thanks for all of your prayers as we have gone through this moving and buying/selling process. We have seen God work in our lives, even in the small details.

Snow, Thanksgiving, and our New House

I know I know, I never post on this anymore. Sorry! We woke up to our first snow fall today. I didn't feel prepared for it at all! That is not a good way to start a Monday Morning, especially since all of our winter wardrobe is still in storage.

We are looking forward to having Thanksgiving with family this year. We have had our own Thanksgivings the past several years that we have been married. The last time I was with family for Thanksgiving was when my family drove up to MN and surprised me my freshmen year of college. That was a fun time!
We are definitely looking forward to the break from work, the great food, spending time with family, and of course shopping on Black Friday! If anyone knows of any furniture deals, let us know.

Lastly, we are counting down the days till we move into our OWN HOUSE!! When we wake up in the morning, it will be only 10 days. We are both so excited. It has been great living with family and we greatly appreciate your generosity as we go through this transition, but we are excited to be on our own again. I think at times we feel like we are still visiting. I can't wait to have my own dishes out, see my own things and just be the two of us. It occurred to me the other day that this will be the first Christmas of our married lives that we will wake up in our own house!! We have always been in CO with my family or here in PA with Heston's family. Heston was so excited about that, especially since he LOVES Christmas. I am going to have to make sure there are some presents under our tree, even through our big present to ourselves is our house. I will definitely post pictures! Please pray that things continue to go smoothly with the house.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
