8 Years Together...Moving Day....

8 years ago on Monday Mickey & I were married. It was a small, intimate ceremony at the Williams Inn in Williamstown, MA. Only about 25 of us, pretty much just our parents & siblings. We had just decided one day about a month before to get married. We wanted another baby & but felt we should get married first. We were going to have our "big" family wedding on our first anniversary but life happens, didn't have the money etc... I've told him though in 2 years for our 10th I would like to renew our vows & have the wedding we didn't have back then. And also go on a honeymoon which we also never had! We figure the kids will be15, 9, 6 & 3 & we will have definitely earned it by then!! Happy Anniversary babe! Luv You!

Ok so a while ago I posted how we had purchased a house & would be moving to Dalton. Well tomorrow is moving day! Can't wait, well not really thrilled on the actual moving furniture, heavy boxes, unpacking, etc but once that's all done it will be great! I can't believe the day is finally here! We have waited soooo long to have a house of our own. I gotta say though what they say is true about buying a house it is VERY stressful!! We had a few unexpected issues arise & it was not easy! Thank god for my mom, my father-in-law & step-mother-in-law!! I don't know what we would have done if it wasn't for their help w/one of the issues w/the house. We are extremely grateful!! And it wasn't easy to ask for their help, I'm a very stubborn, proud person but sometimes you have to give in & ask. Anyway I probably won't be able to post for a bit, but I'm going to try not to be away for too long! Wish us luck!!

Apple Picking

My mom & I took the kids apple picking today at Lakeview Orchards. It was a really nice day for it, not to hot, not to cold. The kids had fun. Lauren took off on us to taste all the different apples, she wasn't really into the "apple picking" thing. Rylan was old enough this year to enjoy it. He was funny, going from apple to apple. At one point he was eating one & dropped it & it got dirt all over it, he picked it back up & started to eat it again. I tried to take it away & give him a new one & he freiked so I handed it back to him. Oh well, what's a little dirt right?! You will notice there is no pics of Lauren because she wouldn't let me take any of course! What a pain sometimes.

Think we got enough!? Carmel apples, apple pie & apple sauce to be made!

Of course when we were done picking we had to go in the shop & buy some goodies! We got cookies, donuts, a whoopie pie & the carmel apple kit. The kids can't wait to make those! Maybe we will do it tomorrow. A nice day spent with my mom & kids!!
