Jake's all-time favorite holiday, paws down, is Halloween. When else does he get personal visits from dozens of children? We had everything from princesses to dragons to Power Rangers come by. What a fun neighborhood - I'm so glad we found this house.
I made a huge pot of chili for supper. Jon has been diligently working on clearing out some of the garage. Yesterday he said the hardest thing he's had to handle lately is doing all the moving by himself (it was a question in class). But he's going to get help soon!
My mom-in-law called this weekend to tell me she and Aunt Claire Anne would like to come visit next weekend and help put the house together. My mom is thinking of visiting the weekend after to help some more and bring all of Hambone's things (evidently he has a full wardrobe already, I just haven't seen it. :^)) I'm so excited! Not only will they be fun help, but they always have good ideas. So I can drag them to Babies R Us or have them help me look at paint chips or whatever. Best of all we'll get to have them see the house and where we are - it becomes more real then, for us and for them.
I can't wait... :^)
