Hello and Happy Holidays!

This time of year brings about a flurry of activity.  Well our flurry is a snow storm!  We found out in early November that they are building a new subdivision in the field behind my house, which is literally in our back yard.

We have wanted to find a bigger house for a while, but the fact that our daycare provider lives across the street and Evan’s caregiver next door, has really made it tough for us to leave.  The upcoming 2-3 years of construction finally pushed us over the hump, and we’re moving!

We’re staying in Round Rock so that Evan can go to the same school, so we’re not moving far, but we have bought, sold, and are closing on both houses by December 28th.  Nothing like a little moving chaos around the holidays!

With that said, I’m taking a few weeks off from the blog to get packed, unpacked, and settled.  My internet hosting company was having problems last week, so if you didn’t get that post, you can read it here.

I wish you and your family a blessed and happy holiday season.  Thank you so much for taking the time to read my posts and be part of my life.  I look forward to connecting in 2013!

  1. my grandmother always used to give toothpicks to people who moved into new homes – so at least they would be so poor they wouldn’t have a toothpick to their names… so here are some virtual toothpicks for you – may you always be rich in love and patience.

  2. Congrats on the move, wishing you and your family a safe and Merry Christmas and your New Year will be a happy one now that you are moving into a bigger home.

  3. As we like to say here in Texas, “Well bless your heart”. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate right here at a time when your plate would have been full enough already. Good wishes to you and your family. Here’s to returning to “normal” (whatever that is) in 2013.

    • Ha! Thanks, Trish. I’ve found you can say anything at all and by adding “bless your heart” at the end, you can get away with it 😉 Hope you and your family have a very Happy Holidays!

  4. Anne, I will surely miss your posts but will be very eager to hear about your holidays in 2013 in your new home. I hope your family have a great Merry Christmas and awesome 2013 start. Thank you for being so inspiring!

  5. Hope you enjoy your new Christmas present to yourselves. Not the best time to be moving but it is something you have thought about doing so it should be joyful. At least in the long run. God Bless and have a Merry Christmas, despite the mess.
