We're In! (Sort of)

Don't have a lot of time and 0 pictures- just wanted to let you know that we are alive and have been slowing moving things from the garage into our new house and unpacking things for the last couple of days.  Before that it was all cleaning! And getting the carpet in and Russell is doing laminate flooring in the kitchen and dining room with the help of his dad.  It's finally finished (well almost) and we were able to bring the stove and refrigerator into the house yesterday.  Hooray!  My mom has been here since monday night helping me clean this place as well as clean the apartment so we could get our deposit back.   Of course I am sick now and my belly totally popped out last week so I am having a hard time doing much of anything!  Thank goodness for my mother!! She is also painting the kitchen for me since I can't be around the chemicals.  It was literally the color of dried blood before- dark red with some orange tint to it- disgusting!  We chose a soft yellow color and we all love it! It makes everything so bright and pleasant looking!  I tell you what I've never cleaned so much in my life!!! Like every inch of this place needed cleaning. I mean I'm washing walls for goodness' sake- but the end result is  so worth it.  It's becoming a home and hopefully it will be finished in a few more days.  I'm way behind on posts, too- I have to tell you all about Morgan's big ouchie and about the gender of the baby too!
Care to venture a guess at the gender?  I'll tell you all tomorrow (and if you know already- don't comment on the gender and spoil it!!)
