So, I have a commercial to share. Funny story behind this one. Every time I see it, I cry. I think of my daughter and wonder how it is she grew up so quickly. Now, in a sweet email from my dad, he told me that he thinks of me when he sees it. GREAT! Now I will cry twice as hard when I watch it! I will cry about the thoughts of my own daughter, and then at the thoughts of my own father thinking of me. I guess I will just have to keep a box of tissues handy when I watch TV just in case this commercial comes on! :)

Hey, didn't I just say something along these same lines a few blog posts ago? I guess they read my mind! :)

It is official! This morning marks the one year anniversary of the first morning we woke up in our new home! We closed on the home on March 4, 2010 and slept here that night. Well, more like "camped" here that night! The kids all slept on the floor in sleeping bags, but they loved every second of it!
It really doesn't feel like it is possible that it has been an entire year since we moved in. I remember the day VERY clearly. The new house smell. The brand new paint. The new carpet. No scuff marks on the walls. Perfection!
My middle son and I did most of the moving. It was Spring Break, and I worked his tail off helping me get stuff moved in the house. My hubby was out of town working, and we didn't want to wait for him to get home before we started moving. We were WAY too excited to wait!!! My dad also was a huge help getting us moved in. He and "Bones" moved a lot of the big items. All that was left to move in when my hubby got home was the refrigerator, piano, a large armoire, and a few larger garage items :)
We LOVE it here! There is still a lot of stuff we need to do, like putting in the backyard! But, we have the rest of our lives to get the home just the way we want it!!!
