More of that game called CATCHING UP.

Ok...so another blog with old photos. I really have been trying hard to get up here and blog but its been so crazy. I cannot even begin to tell you everything we have been doing but its been crazy busy and we're loving every minute of it...ok, almost every minute of it!

Let's see...so our packers came one day and then the movers the next. This is the big moving truck that drove all our stuff from Virginia to Texas.

It was a cold day.

Boxes were stacked like this ALL over our house. I was soooo glad they were going to be moving them and I could feel "settled" eventually.

The doors had to be opened so the three guys could move the stuff in and out...it got very, very, very cold inside the house.

Just so you know...you should NEVER let your house get that cold...especially if the movers have packed all your tools!

We moved into the TLF at Langley AFB for approximately two weeks.

This is the view from our room on the third floor.

There was a nice play area but it was far too cold to be out on it...

The kitchen was small...but decent.

This is the "main living area"...

It wasn't all that bad. The girls had their own room. Seen next...

And, we had our own room too...all attached of course, the main living area was in the middle and the bedrooms on either side.

It was kind of small for a family of five...but we did it. The dogs couldn't come with us because the "towers" as this TLF is known does not accept pets. I was okay with that because I couldn't figure out how I was going to walk two dogs in the cold weather with three little kids too! We dropped the pups off at the Vet to be boarded and they got their teeth cleaned too!

While we were in TLF we did lots of things to keep busy! We visited the Virginia Living Museum where Gator & Peanut enjoyed looking at the microscopes, animals and lots more.

And, I even took video.

Aside from the museum, we tried other things to pass the time. We went to a birthday party.

They loved the ball pit...but really enjoyed the whole place.

We spent some time inside fork-weaving. Its part of Gator's Kindergarten Curriculum. She loved it!!

She was really proud of herself!! It was a fun, easy activity that took up quite a bit of time! (Those are the kind of activities I like!!!)

In the above video you do have to tilt your head at first but I do change it...

We also took a trip up to Richmond to visit the Children's Museum. I LOVE that museum.

The girls had such a good time...

2011-01-12_11-52-04_459

They moved from activity, to activity...and back to the other activities.

I would have loved to have stayed longer and played but that wasn't in the cards that day...and while I had hoped to go back one more time in those two weeks things got crazy and well, it didn't happen.

One weekend day we took Daddy to the bounce house place...if you look close you'll see Gator standing at the top...

And now, Peanut & Daddy!

The girls also spent lots of time at the "room" making Valentine's for their friends.

2011-01-14_15-36-43_418

We took one last trip to the VLM (Virginia Living Museum)...

2011-01-17_10-37-41_165

And, then...it was time to go...our last night before we left, beautiful.

2011-01-19_17-32-36_306

And...then we were off....more later, kids are awake from their naps!!
