I can't believe it's only been three weeks since we moved to Delware. That's right, we moved to Delaware. It's on the east coast, a couple hours north of Washington D.C. in case you are wondering. I certainly had no clue where it was when Tyler was approached about the job. Maryland? Delaware? Never heard of 'em. Tyler is working in Maryland, but we live 15 minutes away in Delaware. It's crazy how close together the states are over here! The day we arrived it looked like these pictures below. This is the view of our street from the front steps of our rental house. Within a few days all the tree had changed colors and it had poured and snowed on us. I was not ready for that but it was pretty cool! Things have gotten warmer again and we are currently enjoying absolutely beautiful (though sometimes chilly) weather and gorgeous fall leaves.
I don't know how, but we didn't get a picture of the outside of our house. I'll post some soon!
Moving in was tough with three little ones. They were crazy and we were exhausted and frazzled! I am happy to say that now each room of our house has no more than two unpacked boxes in it. Yay! We still have a lot of organizing to do. I hope to get to some decorating as well, but it's been so much work to move across the country on our own, that I just don't care about decorating at the moment. We'll see how long that lasts.
Here are some pictures of the boys being silly outside on the steps. By the way, that plunger has never been used. Just though I'd throw that in there.
Showing his "owie"
Brigham introduces himself to everyone we cross paths with in public. He will literally stop a shopper at Target and say "Hi, my name is Brigham. I'm four years old!" Every time.
How could daddy put that face in time out?!
Here are the boys, all ready for the ward Trunk-or-Treat. We actually ended up trick or treating inside the church building because it was cold and rainy!
Halloween Night: The boys were soooo good. This was the first year we did not have to fight little boys into their costumes. They were very proud to be a monkey, chicken, and dragon. Taft and Brigham were especially excited to trick or treat for candy. Taft ran as fast as he could till his little body couldn't any more, and then he just wanted to eat each piece of candy as he received it. Brigham wanted to lead the way and was upset whenever we tried to. Bentley enjoyed trick or treating as well. He fell asleep in the stroller and napped the whole time!
Why did the chicken (try to) cross the road?
Because his mommy told him not too!
Digging into their stash...
