Moved In

So, we're officially in our house. There's still loads of unpacking to do, but it'll get done eventually. When we're feeling nice and settled, I'll be sure to post some pictures (it might take a while). Until then, I have to say this move would have been impossible without the help of Jim's Aunt Michelle, and Uncle Dave. Both of these people have been a HUGE help to us, and we're SO thankful for them.

First of all, our old ward's Elders Quorum were setting up for the ward Christmas party during the time we scheduled to move all the big stuff. So, when Jim's Uncle showed up, there was just TWO guys there moving all the heavy things. We really appreciate Uncle Dave's willingness to help us move, and we're pretty sure he got a big workout doing it! Not only did Jim's Uncle move things for us, but he gave us a pretty sweet deal on some appliances for this place. We're so grateful for all the help he provided.

Aunt Michelle helped us finish packing all the miscellaneous items that are SO annoying to pack on the last day of moving, and she helped us clean up our old duplex. She was a cleaning machine! I don't think I could thank her enough if I tried. Not only that, but after we put her to work on day one, she came back a second day for round two of moving. She showed up at our new place with home-made soup, home-made bread, home-made cookies, gifts, AND she even stayed and helped me get all the kitchen stuff unpacked and organized. I honestly don't know what I would have done without her here helping me. I woke up yesterday morning feeling a little overwhelmed with all the things I would have to do to make my kitchen function, and after Michelle showed up my worries were gone. She whipped this place into shape, and again we're so thankful for her help! Even Aunt Michelle's nice neighbors, who we don't even know, gave us a gift. We're so thankful for them to, and are touched by their generosity.

My parents have also helped pitch in with helping us purchase things for the new place. We're grateful for their generosity and willingness to help us out.

I really wish there was something I could do to pay all these people back for their kindness to us this holiday season. I hope someday I'll be able to. I've been a little down lately, but all of this generosity has really helped perk up my spirits. Thanks again to everyone that's been watching out for us. We hope and pray you will be blessed beyond your means for your willingness to serve us. We're so thankful!
