House Update!

So....we have an offer on our house. As long as inspections go well, we could be homeless by mid-February. We have no idea where we are going! We won't get much money from the sale of this house, so we need to downsize our living expenses, payoff more debt, and save money for a down payment on a new house.

Our solution... right now we are thinking of doing the RV living. We can buy an RV, park it at my dad's place, so we have a place to sleep, with less than half of the expenses we have now.

Now to play the waiting game......

Local Library Fun!

We had our monthly Lego Club meeting yesterday at the library. This is the second meeting. The library had so many kids show last month that they are now doing two meetings a month and split the age range. Avery participated even though she doesn't turn 5 until Saturday! The theme was winter, and the girls had a blast as usual :)

We also make Christmas ornaments in girl scouts every year. The library decorates their trees with them. Avery, Alexis, and Lillian each made one (even though Avery isn't technically a Daisy yet).

All and all, it was a fun evening in between piano and karate!

No more babies!

Today is Henna's 3rd birthday! It's bittersweet. I know we are having no more babies, that factory burned down a month after she was born. Sure she is still in diapers, and drinks from a sippy cup, and she has her own Minion language, but we no longer have a baby in the house. For 9 years we've had babies, or been pregnant, breastfeeding, swaddling, sleep deprived parents. Now we are just sleep deprived!

This year started "the change" in our life. That next chapter. We've survived 10 years in this house, now we are moving on to living and enjoying life. Finding a forever house, climbing out of debt, shaping our girls' education, and creating lasting memories.

So happy birthday kiddo. You completed our family, and ultimately pushed us into our next chapter!
