House Hand Over

We get the keys to our new house on Friday! WooHoo!!! I'm currently flat out trying to organise the flooring guy, air conditioning guy, heater guy, carpets, blinds... did I miss anything?!! I've been pouring over light fitting websites, trying to find "just the right ones"!

We had HEAPS of dirt moved last week, so it really feels like, we're almost there! We've got lawn areas prepped, and hopefully will get some lawn delivered late this week. And just to make our lives that little bit busier, Miss M is having her 13th birthday party on Sat! We're hoping to have a big bonfire, so her friends can toast marshmallows!

ahhhh... so much to do, so little time!

No pics today! Will attempt to post some more next week... maybe?!!!

I was just looking over the last few posts, seeing how much Tiny has changed. Its absolutely incredible. She's gone from being a tiny, scared, tearless little baby - to a confident, emotion expressing, 2 and half year old diva!!! She is absolutely hilarious. The things she comes out with really astound us! She was driving in the car with my parents the other day - they overtook a truck on the freeway, and as they drove past, she looked at the truck and said (in her best Simpson's Nelson voice) HA-HA! To my knowledge, none of us, have done that when overtaking a car or truck... so how come she has it all in context, and did that?!!! She loves to sing too! Its very very cute. And she's recently become a HUGE fan of Pooh Bear! She sings all the songs from the Pooh Bear movie!!! Its so cute!!!!

I followed your journey until you brought Mini home. We returned with our daughter Willow on Jan 1, 2009 and have been quite busy since then as we also had a domestic adoption while waiting for Willow. I wonder if you could private e-mail me @ tpgolds@msn.com. We have been looking for a Nici Ladybird plush toy and the only place we have found them is in Australia and they won't ship to the USA. I'm looking for someone in Australia who will allow us to ship them to their address and them maybe ship them to us. Our 3 year old's favorite thing in the world is her Ladybug and we have come close to losing her several times so we really need a couple of backups. Please let me know if you can help. Tom
