2011 brought challenges and lots of change to our little home. We started the previous New Year living in San Diego California, having a fabulous New Years Eve party with my close friend Michelle (Muffin Tin Mom) and her family and later we were joined by my brother and his girlfriend. It was an awesome night full of tasty food, laughter and fun. Little did we know then that we would be moving to a rural part of Northeastern PA only four short months later.
It was a very quick four months. Packing, saying goodbye to our friends and family and then hopping in the car for a 6 day cross country drive with two kids and a dog. Lucky for me this was C's third time moving cross country and M's second, so they were seasoned pro's. The dog on the other hand had to be dosed with Benadryl to keep her stress level at a minimum...lol
We had a wonderful drive, saw beautiful landscape and enjoyed our time together. We arrived at our new home tired yet excited, and while the transition for the girls was hard the first couple months...new school, new friends, ect, they have been amazing troopers as always.
So we start 2012 where 2011 end. We have settled into our new home, made new friends and are still exploring the area. We are preparing for the snow as we have never been stationed in an area that had more than just a dusting. We are very excited to see what 2012 has in store for us. As long as it is not another cross country move in four months, I think we will be just fine :)
Now for some fun this new year...Are you addicted like I am to Pinterest? Have you seen the Pinterest Challenge?
