We're almost there.....

This will be picture overload for some, but I'm so excited that I just can't help it!

--The four pieces of our house came today--

They will sit there until Monday (because of the weather) but they are there!  We have a long checklist of things that will all come together in the next few weeks, but with any luck, we will be moving within a month!
We are so grateful and overjoyed to see the completion of this process.  We are truly blessed to be able to move close to family and to have our own home again!

Here, the first and second pieces arrive.  

The second portion arrives:

 They used a bulldozer to pull them up the driveway.

 Charlie, watching with Aunt Cara:

We told Charlie they will be putting it together, like a puzzle.  He doesn't seem as excited about the house as he is about the trucks and machinery :)

We've been very happy with the process, so here is a shout out to Bill Lake:

 We went halfway up the driveway to watch the second piece come in.  It was a lot colder than it looks. Trust me. 

 Two of the pieces are wider than the other two, so it was a tight fit at the top!

 The first two pieces, along with the crane they will use to set them.  You can see the foundation between the pieces of the house.

Hours later, the kids were nearing nap time so we decided to leave.  On the way out, we passed the arrival of the third and fourth pieces.  We decided to stop and watch again.  Matthew slept through it, but Charlie was pretty excited.  We stood on the opposite side this time, so don't let the different angle throw you!

So that's it! A few weeks and we will be moving into our new home!  
I can't wait to start this new adventure!
