Mama and Papa Are moved in!

So finally after many months Mama and Pap are moved into thier new house.

At Thanksgiving the g-parents informed us that they had decided to do a reverse mortage and would be up grading the home they live in. WOW and good news, oh but they have to be out in by December 5.

We do a run out to Hemet on the next Saturday. We were expecting a big day but nothing compared to what happened as we got out of the car. Kathy who has said that the PT Cruiser hates her Proved it by having the car eat her finger. Her "BAD" finger was smashed really really smashed by the car door. Jacquelyn just yelled MOM and I knew something had happened. She won the best big sister award for opening the car door off the finger. ( OK I believe the car hates her now.)

We got there to find that because of their health, not much had been packed. so in one day we packed and moved them into a storage unit and the ( don't ask) empty house they control next door. By 11:30 we were done even Kathy helped splint and all. BTW she lost the finger nail it was so bad.

We would be going back early in Janurary when the new house would be delievered and set up. we were all excited. Mam and Papa really deserve a new house and this is a super upgrade.

So fast forward to March all the red tape is cut the house is in all is well....until the Code Inforcement called saying the other house was in violation and would be red tagged in 5 days. Oh my we now have to get all the stuff out of the other house >>>gesh .

Kory is the good son and is deflecting the Code Enforcement people and sets up a day to clear out the other house. Saturday>>> Of Roadshow. UM not working for any of us. New plan Thursday thats when we will go move them.

We show up to find that Papa has hired someone to clear out the other house and put all of the contents on his driveway. All we had to do is put everything away .Yipee for our team . 6 hours of work later the master bedroom has the funriture, cable, and closet set up and the knick nacs Still in boxes near the shelves they go onto. The Living room has the furniture put in place and all the videos still in boxes in front of the entertainment center. The china cabnet which hasn't seen light of day for 16 years is out and while not completely filled the stuff is in the boxes right next to it ready to be unpacked. ( we will see how great a job I did packing so many years ago.)

We made it home by 11:00 and showers and all done by midnight. I am so proud that all the kids got up for seminary and zero period classes Friday morning.

Kathy got the best part of the thank you gift her room was clean and all her laundry done when she came home from school. The boys room is for next week. I couldn't tell clean from dirty or up from down for that matter.

Friday after school was roadshow pratice till 9:00pm and playing video games after that till ???? I went to bed at midnight. Isiah and Will spent the night knowing we were out by 7:00am the next day.

Saturday At 8:15 was a preformance at the Pacific Symphony lobby ( wow the sounded great) and we all got to see the Magic Flute in a children experienceing the arts show. As soon as we were done race to the car with 5 of the kids in the roadshow,including the Director and one of the main characters. we were only 1 hour late for tha call for Roadshow. WOOO HOOO (As soon as I figure out how to load the video to my computer I will add it to Youtube.)

Roadshow pratice went on until the night was done at 7:30 that night.

Again how proud a mom is when her kids make it to the right place at the right time and in the right clothes. Kyle was set apart as a Teacher in the Aaronic Priesthood on sunday March 15. We are proud that the Little family was all there and in a good mood.

Sunday>>>>>NAPS ARE MANDATORY!!!! we haven't been home for more than a nap in days.
Kameron made a great soup for Lunch yummy. Potato cheese.
