Movin' and Groovin'

So for those of you who haven't heard, we are finally moving! Yes! We fell in love with a little house in Santa Ana and the Lord totally opened the doors for us to be able to rent it. (Isn't it the cutest?) So as crazy as things can be around here at times, this is like nothing before. I started packing on Friday and the boxes are piling up quickly. (not to high of course because Char pushes them off eachother!) Which brings me to another point. How do you pack a house with children around? Brandi? Erica? Carly? Any ideas would be appriciated. The girls NEED all day long, they need to eat(multiple times a day), they need to play, they need to be outside, they need my attention, they need to cuddle, they need to be kept safe from stacks of boxes and everything that was once hidden away in a closet or drawer and is now at their disposal. And somewhere in the midst of all this I am to pack up my entire house, succesfully? Yes. Yes I am. And obviously I have even been able to take a little blogging break! God is Good and I am in the packing Groove. It may sound strange but I actually really enjoy packing things! I like the way everything gets wrapped up and fits snuggly in a box and then that box is stacked neaty with the other boxes of completion. I love going through and organizing and throwing away things that I know I do not need and will never wear or use. Those of you with similar personality types are sure to understand. And...... I like using the packing tape dispenser.... I like the sound it makes(:

What a Trip

The girls and I made a quick trip to Fresno last week. It was shorter than most of our trips but still very sweet. My sister Brandi and her fam are now officially Californians again and it was great to have all the cousins together. They played non-stop! Which was really good for Nevaeh. She had them all acting like animals! And surprisingly she held her own while interacting with her cousins who have been described as 'professional kids'!

I also had the privilege of meeting the newest member of the Coplin family. My friend Carly gave birth to her second boy, Myles Everett on Sept 8, and he is just simply precious.

Wasting No Time

She just took her first steps a few days ago and already this little Chubba-lub is on the move. It seriously seems like she is getting better and better every hour. This video was taken yesterday and today she is much improved and has been working on her 360.
Look at her go!
