Life lately...Our family has seen a lot of change over the past few months!
In October we began searching for a new home after finding out we were expecting BABY BOY #3. We knew we needed more space to raise our family and as much as we adored our 1960's ranch on a basement, we were already busting at the seams! I expected our search to last well into spring but we found our new home right before Thanksgiving which threw us into a perpetual state of chaos right before the holidays. We then had to turn around and get our current house ready to sell. With the kids out of school and our house officially on the market, we decided it was easier to get away for the holidays than stay here and have to clean house for potential buyers everyday. We headed to South Carolina for Thanksgiving and stayed in Debordieu. Have you been there? It's a lovely spot near Pawley's Island.
We moved into the new house the first weekend of December and tried to get somewhat settled before Christmas. Luke just happened to turn 8 that weekend too. We took time to celebrate and somewhere there are pictures. He is such an awesome kid. I call him my gentle giant. He's got such a sweet heart and is so very patient with his energetic little brother, Jett.
Christmas break was spent lounging in our pjs and visiting with friends and family. We had a lot of visitors to the new house despite it's constant state of disarray.
The boys are doing a great job of breaking in the place. It's seen a ton of truck action as well as Nerf gun fights and wrestling matches. And I'm getting used to having stairs, especially being so pregnant!
Had to share a New Years Day photo with y'all too. Daniel (Mr. Your Southern Peach) outdid himself this year. The collards were amazing but the black eyed peas were his best ever. One day, I'll sit down and grab his recipe.
As for now, we are finally in a spot where we can actually start thinking and preparing for baby. The crib isn't assembled and is currently being used as a pretend "jail" where the boys lock up Grandma sometimes. We do not have a name for the baby yet and we still have to get a car that will fit our entire family. We DO have a car seat, some hand me down clothes and lots of love! It's a start...
