hallelujah!

Oh, happy day. We are in our house for the first time tonight! We've been moving since Wednesday and the past two days have been especially long, but we are just so glad to be home. The house is really a joy and blessing. The space is just right and it is incredible to have a room for Johnny and not just a closet! A lot remains to be done, but thank God my mom is here. She is such doer and project person and she's been working non-stop, too, which keeps me motivated. We are currently getting things out of the lodge and cleaning it. Hopefully that will be done tommorrow--good bye old lodge! Then, we just have lots of settling in things to do, and there are a few big items that remain: some lighting,the washer/dryer, closet rods/shelves (shelves? in a closet?) just putting accessories out and finding bookcases.
The Northpark mall commercial keeps coming on reminding me of how few days I have until Christmas! It's scary, because we've been so busy with other things and then delayed with the house that I feel as if Christmas were slipping away so quickly. I will post pictures on, soon of the house and also our Christmas letter for those who aren't getting it snail mail. Thanks for all of your prayers for us. Good night!

I'm glad to see you are into the new place...with a little girl(!) on the way, I know you will need the extra space.

Christmas has gotten away from me this year too. It wasn't until our church's big Christmas concert this evening that it really hit me. I suppose the wedding has really distracted me. Next year, look out...

I know that y'all are thrilled. Hope the moving in process goes smoothly. That place has now gone through two major transformations. You should do a photo essay chronicling the evolution of the La home.
