I HAD TO WORK FRIDAY BEFORE MOVE IN DAY.....
I DROVE ZACK CRAZY BY CALLING HIM EVERY HOUR
SO ANXIOUS TO GET HOME!!
THE CLEANING HAD ALREADY BEGUN......
MY SWEET GRANNY WRESTLED WITH MY CLOTHES ALL WEEKEND LONG!
MAMMY WAS ENERGETIC AND WORKED HARD TOO
FROM ORGANIZING MY KITCHEN TO SCRUBBING WALLS!
ALMOST BREAKING A LEG IN THE PROCESS TOO
THESE GUYS BUILT UP THEIR MUSCLES ALL WEEKEND
POOR TREY AND BUBBA LIFTED MORE THAN I EVEN WANT TO THINK ABOUT
THEY ALSO PUT TOGETHER ZB'S OFFICE!
HE IS PROUD OF IT....REAL PROUD!
THEN ON MARCH 18TH WE SPENT OUR LAST NIGHT (WITH TREY AND MAMMY) AND SAID GOODBYE TO OUR FIRST HOME...
"FOR 5 YEARS AND 3 MONTHS OUR FIRST HOUSE HAS BEEN A HOME. WE'VE CHANGED SOME AND CHASED DREAMS. IT'S HEARD MUCH LAUGHTER AND SOME SCREAMS. FRIENDS AND FAMILY HAVE FILLED IT WITH MUCH LOVE AND FUN BUT AFTER TONIGHT IT WILL ALL BE DONE. OUR LAST NIGHT HERE I WILL THINK ABOUT ALL THE MEMORIES MADE, MOST OF WHICH I WOULDN'T TRADE! THANKFUL I GET A NEW SEASON WITH YOU....OH WHAT A SPECIAL PLACE AND A DREAM COME TRUE....A FOREVER FARMHOUSE....JUST ME AND YOU!"
THEN THE REAL WORK BEGAN EARLY SATURDAY MARCH 19 AT 8AM!
BUBBA AND TREY...
GRANNY AND PAPA JOHN...
AUNT MOLLIE AND OF COURSE ME, MAMMY AND ZB WERE THE FIRSTS TO ARRIVE
NIN-NIN, DADDY, MELISSA AND LINDSEY
PAWPAW RICK, FARRAH, MAW-MAW
JENNY AND OTHERS STOPPED BY TO HELP!
I EVEN HAD DADDY HANGING PICTURES ON THE WALLS....
SO THIS HOUSE IS ALREADY LOOKING LIKE A HOME!!!
AND OF COURSE WE ARE HAVING A LITTLE AUBURN THEMED ROOM TOO....
AT ABOUT 10:30 WE CALLED IT A NIGHT AND I POSTED:
Once again today, I watched my family pull together and make things happen for me. These folks absolutely take my breath away and I'm beyond blessed that God made them mine!! They love us well and always go the extra mile to make sure "their princess" has very special memories. I will never be able to express my thanks for all the help, support and encouragement. I will never be able to show my love for each of you....it's just too great! Thank you all for making tonight a dream come true. This is my current view. Calling it a night for the first time in our forever farmhouse with the most precious farmer I've ever known....
SUNDAY AFTER CHURCH I COULDN'T WAIT TO GET BACK HOME TO WORK....
CENTER PIECES ARE PRIORITY OF COURSE!
WE LOVE OUR FARM TABLE THAT MR.TOMMY HENDON BUILT FOR US!!!
AND THE PARTY IS PLANNED....
CAN'T WAIT TO CELEBRATE THIS NEW SEASON
AND FILL THIS HOME WITH MANY FAMILY AND FRIENDS FOR YEARS TO COME!
