We are in our new place at last.
And it is perfect.


We have many people to thank for this. BIG thank you's too.

My Mom & Dad.
They spent Friday at the house with me cleaning and building gates.
We were cleaning machines all day - we cleaned the kitchen top to bottom, washed walls, Mom cleaned all 3 bathrooms and we tackled the carpet edges/base boards that were GROSS.
Dad ran errands for me and built gates so that Cruz can't escape from the backyard. Did I mention it was freezing out!
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
And then they were back at it all day Saturday moving us in.
{And my Mom is over at our old house cleaning it for us today! Best parents EVER!}
Mom and Dad also took care of lunch and dinner for everyone on Saturday so thank you so much for doing all of that prep as well. xo
Then we have Blake & Karen.
They showed up at our old house at 8:15am Saturday morning.
We loaded up their truck, the guys made an early morning drop off and picked up the U-Haul. Karen and I brought loads and loads of boxes from the basement to the main floor and from the upstairs rooms to the main floor.
Let's just say we did a lot of flights of stairs! 
Dustin was at it all day too and even went and did a last load of the garage on his own. SO appreciate it.
Whitney and Easton joined us at the house in the afternoon and helped with unloading and also brought us some pumpkin whoopie cakes. Delicious!

Nana was a superstar helper too. Helped load up her car and then tackled sorting out the kitchen and the entire pantry.  REALLY appreciate that as it was a huge job! Thank you!
The nuts and bolts and caramels were also appreciated and devoured!

Crystal and Troy started at the old house loaded up their truck and they were at it all day - whether is was back and forth with loads or up and down the stairs arms full! Thank you.
Leigh and Mr. D were a huge help too. Mr. D made many trips with the guys and the U-haul and Leigh did many trips up and down the stairs at the new house.
 Leigh also made us muffins to keep us going and brought beer to keep the guys stamina up!
They also dognapped Cruz so that she could have a play with Harley and to give her a break from the chaos of the house.

We appreciate everyones muscles!!!

So even though we feel like this:

It was worth it.
Thank you again everyone - we appreciate it more than you will EVER know.

Sounds like a dream moving crew!! Our friends and family have helped us move twice now so next time we have to hire movers!! That won't be for awhile though! And we have so much more stuff now than we did 2 years ago!
