Packing Up

We have sold our house in case some of you didn't know, so now I am in the process of packing up everything. I get tickled at Max. He finds a different box to sleep in everyday. Here are a few pictures of him.

We close on September 30th and our moving date is set for that Friday, October 2nd. Moving day will be a very emotional day for us. We will be leaving our first home and a lot of great memories of starting our life together here and raising McKenzie and Matt here, too. But I have to remember that we will take all of that with us in our hearts. I am very sentimental, so it will probably be a little harder for me. But I know we will make great memories in our new place!

To escape from all the boxes today, I went to one of my favorite stores, Walls. I love to go in there when I have the time just to ramble. David took the kids this morning to do their breakfast thing, so I headed over there. I am so excited about my finds! I have been looking for a big clock for the new house and found this one over in a corner.

It was only $24, so I grabbed it. Walls got in a shipment of Michaels stuff. They had great fall and Christmas things. I saw this turkey and knew that it would be great for my kitchen table this Thanksgiving.

It is so pretty with all the different textures. I had several women stop me in the store asking me where I found it. I was sorry to tell them that I got the last one!
