Our month in a collage

Here's a very short summary of the pictures. They are in chronological order, so just follow along...

Brad's parents came to see baby Maggie for the first time! Brad's Mom stayed the week and helped me get packed up and moved out of the Babcock's basement. The night before she left she took the girls "shopping" and Kate got a baby doll car seat just like Mom's. Livie got a puppy dog carrier just like Paris Hilton's =).
Maggie looked so sweet all dressed up for her first wedding at three weeks old.
Then our big girls got sick.... that was no fun.
Then they got better and started acting like sweet sisters again.
Maggie loves her bath - it makes her sleepy =)
We closed on our house!!! We had SO MUCH help, and everything went so smoothly. Brad Berthold came and painted for us. Several guys from church pitched it to help him out. Adam and Rosie came up to help out on their "vacation". Adam hung all kinds of lights and fans for us. The wives and kids just hung out and bragged on their work =).
After the busiest month of our lives, it was just "us" again. Kathryn kept asking "where Nana and PawPaw were" and "would Chelsea be here at our new house" and "could Corbin come live with us". It was quite an adjustment to just be "us" again, and it took a lot of explaining to remind the girls just exactly who "us" was =).
Maggie is starting to really enjoy her Bumbo seat (when the big girls aren't sitting in it :-O)
And last but not least, Livie misses being "the baby", so she just pretends every once in a while =).

The only reason we are where we are is because of all the help we have had getting here. We pray every day that we will use our house to be as much of a blessing to others as others have been to us. Thank you all, so much, for your hard work, love, support, and prayers over the past 8 months. We are so thankful for every one of you.
