Getting Settled In

Finally, we are getting ourselves settled into our new house. Last Wednesday evening was the first night we spent in our house and it was crazy. The movers came late in the afternoon and into the evening so we didn't get the bed put together until late (or early in the morning). We were soooo tired on Thursday morning but we had to get up early to go take the U-Haul back. Matthew was a trooper through all of the chaos around here those few days. The first night he had to sleep in his play yard, but he fell asleep in his car seat first because we had to make a late night trip to Wal-mart to get diapers. We also didn't have dinner because the movers were late so we ate around 11:00 p.m. (I felt horrible being out that late with Matthew) In any event we are now moved into our house. I am still unpacking boxes but can actually see that the end is near.

Despite all the craziness we had a great 4th of July. Actually, the evening was great but during the day we waited all day for Comcast to come install our cable, internet and phone. Needless to say we didn't get our services until today due to technical problems with the signal outside our house. The city of Homestead puts on a huge fireworks show on the 4th and we could see the entire show in our backyard. The fireworks were really pretty reflecting on the lake. We also met a very nice couple that moved in during the same time we did.

Below are some pictures of Matthew during the holiday weekend.

The house is finally ours!!!!
