Move to Illinois: Phase One

Before our little family could move to Illinois, we had to first rent our home in Washington. We were so blessed that Katie & Sean , our favorite neighbors, happened to know of a couple looking for a house to rent. This couple came over to look at our home and signed the paperwork shortly after. We were so lucky to have found renters so quickly, especially with the large number of properties available just in our neighborhood alone. The only problem was that they wanted to move in two weeks before we could start our trip to Illinois. So this is how "phase one" of our move to Illinois went:

Step One: Move in and take over 2 of 3 bedrooms of your best friends house (Not sure how Carl really felt about Luke turning his "man room" into a nursery!).

In order to completely take over you must:

Bring your baby & all of his really big & bright toys!

Bring your dog, his bed, bowls, & of course more toys!

Step Two: Have your beautiful best friend tote your baby around while she cooks you amazing breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You of course are probably doing important things like checking your email or sipping a glass of wine!

Step Three: Make the boys take numerous pictures in their hats until you get the perfect one!

Step Four: Say goodbye to your best friends...the friends you prayed for when you first moved to Washington. The friends who you can really be yourself around and they still love you. The friends who were there with you when your baby was born. The friends who you can spend every waking minute with for two weeks and still feel that it was not enough time. Carl & Alyson are these friends. We will miss them more than they could possibly know. Thank you for all of the wonderful memories over the past 3 years...time truly does fly when you are having fun! We love you with all of our hearts always!
