You will not believe what we found today.  In our preparation for the baby, we have moved a LOT of furniture around.  Today I had Alan here to help me with the lifting, so we tackled……..THE STORAGE ROOM……..scary stuff.

Alan opened a box labeled “Christmas glass, June 2008, leave packed.”  So Alan couldn’t resist.  He cracked it open, and the entire box was still wrapped in mover’s packing paper.  He was so excited.  The whole box was full of things we have not seen, since our 2008 move!!  That’s FIVE years ago, and the last time we have used/seen any of this stuff was three houses ago….in Anniston.

Look at a little bit of what we found:

The pics in this frame date 2002-2005.  Look at how young Laura Ellen was!  The pic on the bottom left shows me 6 months pregnant with Joshua.

a beautiful portrait of Alan’s Granny.  This used to hang in our guest room in Anniston.

Joshua at 6 weeks!

No, we did not find this in the box, but I would like to say thank you to the sweet family member who called me up and recommended this cereal, in light of my aforementioned pregnancy issues….  ; )

Other things that happened today:

While cooking dinner, I was desperate for a way to entertain the Dan Man.  This worked for all of two minutes….

Caleb, playing Legos.  This room is also messy lately, unlike the basement it is ashamedly so….
  Alan made a fire in the basement fireplace for the first time today, we finally put together the globe puzzle Nonna gave us a couple years ago (not a kid activity.  That was mine and Alan’s proudest accomplishment of the day.  It’s a puzzle that’s a sphere, it’s literally a puzzle ball.),  and I officially decided that running is just not fun anymore.  I don’t know what happened, I guess it’s the big belly thing, but it now gives me shin splints and sore ankles to try to run.  I guess walking and workout DVDs will just have to make up my workout regimen for the rest of the pregnancy.
  It looks like Amy and Greg will be having their baby this week!  I’ve got two presents ready to mail, and I can’t wait to find out which one to send!!  Is there anything more exciting than a new baby?  I think not.
