New House - staying here awhile!

One of the reasons I haven't been posting is because we decided to get a house sooner than expected. We have been busy moving. This is probably the biggest move we have ever made! It took us 5 days and 5 truck loads to just get all of our stuff IN the house. We had to move Clinton's apartment, 2 storage units, and our warehouse that we use for our business. Clinton added it up tonight and it is about 1 football field length of stuff!!! The warehouse alone took 3 truck loads! So the stuff IN the house is 2 of the truck loads and the stuff IN the GARAGE is 3 truck loads. Needless to say the garage is FULL! We also have our truck here that we use to transport all of our equipment. It is so nice to have ALL of our belongings under 1 roof! I LOVE the house and the location. It is perfect for our needs. I see us staying here for a really long time :) We finished moving about 5 am last Friday. We slept a few hours and then went to Las Vegas for my birthday ( upcoming post). I have been spending the past week UNPACKING stuff and still have more to go. At least most of the rooms are liveable now. We just got our bed put together this weekend.

Aidan is also LOVING the new house. He has his own playroom, his own storage shed outside for his riding toys, and a good size yard to play in! We have already had a playdate with one of the neighbors who has 3 girls. The youngest just turned 4 in November. There is a GREAT park within walking distance from here. Clinton took Aidan there for a couple of hours yesterday so I could have some uninterrupted unpacking time ( a BIG help!) Tomorrow Aidan has a "discovery day" at one of the preschools we visited ( that just happens to be within walking distance). Its a visitation day from 8:30 to 12:30 to see if it is a good fit for us. I am excited for him!

I haven't really taken any pictures of the house yet because it has been such a mess but I did post some video above. The first day we moved, Suzanne and Jacob came down to entertain Aidan while we were busy ( also a BIG help). The truck had a lift and Clinton put them on it and gave them a ride. After that they wanted to do it again and again and again!
