Sad house :-(

We had to say good-bye to Jasper this weekend. He was just making life too stressful in our new house with it being a rental. We couldn't seem to break him of the once in a while accidents and he continues to run whenever he gets a chance at the door. Saturday was the last straw for Andy so we had to drop him off at the vet who was then giving him to a rescue league. They promised he would go to a good home and that all homes are screened. That made me feel better, but it was still sad. Just tonight Zach told me he missed Jasper :-( He hadn't mentioned him in a couple of days. In good news I am heading to NH this weekend to go to my little brother's wedding! I am so proud of all that he is doing with his life right now and I am excited to celebrate with him and my new sister to be!

We are all adjusting to life in the new house. It is different from our old house but it certainly beats an apartment. Ava is doing ok in her new bed, most of the time. Today she took a long nap and is now getting out of bed repeatedly with tons of different stories. I need to pee, I need a drink, rock me, I'm sick. Wow, is she really only two years old?! The funny thing she is doing lately is trying to distract us when she is being disciplined. She has started saying "there's something in my teeth" whenever she wants to take the pressure off of herself! I think that is a higher level cognitive action so while I know what she is doing, I also know that is a very advance concept for her to have gotten! She also likes to discipline Zach. The other night he was crying in his room and she told him to "be quiet because I don't like it and mommy doesn't like it". Andy and I had to do all we could to not laugh uncontrollably! We are just 5.5 months away from the big move. It seems so surreal to think of all the changes we are going through and have gone through.

So Big!

Ava was so happy to be in her new bed! She stayed up until 10:30 showing us just how easy it was for her to get up! Finally we had to put her in her room and close the door. She cried for a few minutes then finally went down. Then wouldn't you know she was up at 6:30 this morning!

Change, Change and More Change!

We are all moved out of the old house. The house that holds so many memories. I've heard from a couple people that memories are of people, not of things. I am trying to tell myself this, but I am still a bit sad to have seen the inside of my little house for the last time. I walked around for longer then I needed to and just had a good cry to mourn the loss. The kids didn't understand, but they tried to be sympathetic. They are so darn cute sometimes. Poor Zach even cried a little because I was crying.

In other news, Ava is really a big girl now. First she gave up the pacifier with ease, then she started potty training and is doing really well. Now she is moving into a big girl bed. Her crib didn't survive the move so we are getting her a toddler bed. She has made a special request for a princess bed. I suppose I should go to bed now. This weekend of changes has been exhausting! We still have so much to do to get settled in our new abode. Wish us luck!

Happy New Year!

We had a great time at Josh and Sara's for New Years Eve! The kids even managed to stay up until 11. 2011 is going to be a year of ginormous changes for our little family, but we all know they will be good in the end! I'm also going to be an Auntie on my side of the family and gain a sister in law this year! Here's hoping that 2011 is the year that things get good for everyone :-)

Blog Neglect!

With the events of the last two weeks I have not had a lot of blogging time! We are moving into the new house today and tomorrow so I hope to get a little bit of time again to catch up here! My poor lil' blog :-( My designers have made some fabulous stuff in the last two weeks but I think it may be time to start a digi scrapping blog of it's own. With the kids and layouts my blog is getting super full!
