We moved!!!

This is my 4th attempt at this post... I keep getting interrupted, so let's see how this goes!

We are finally out of the apartment and in our new house!!
Wednesday was a blur of crazyness... with 7 kids, as well as the kid's cousin from overseas, AND 2 kittens!!! added to the mix, we somehow manage to pack up and transfer our belongings from apartment to house.  Our oldest girls and their cousin were of great help, while our 2 youngest were not exactly useful.  The kittens added some stress too, we had to make sure they didn't get lost or stepped on in the commotion!
Thanks to my wonderful in-laws who also helped out a lot!!  (they are here from overseas, and sacrificed their time on a very hot and muggy day helping us out!)
What's up with the kittens??  Well...  we have sort of promised our kids that we would get a cat when we finally moved in to our house.  I happened to see an ad for kittens for sale a week and a half ago, and we went to see them.  Of course we ended up with 2 kittens...  and we couldn't wait to get them till after we moved (how do you argure with 7 kids wanting the same thing??), so there they were in the middle of the moving madness.

Now we've spent 3 nights here, and I have my appliances all working!  Big help to keep this place running smoothly.  I'm already enjoying our kitchen immensely!!  It feels like I'm visiting someone who has a super nice (although still rather messy) house, full of our stuff!  I don't have a working camera for the moment, but as soon as I do, I'm gonna post some pictures!!

The week coming up will be busy (nothing too unusual around here, it's a chronic condition!!).
My dear brother from USA is coming to pay us a visit along with his wife and little boy!  Our 2nd oldest daughter's BFF from USA is also coming, together with her great-aunt!!  So things are going on, and we don't have a dull moment!

Well, I'm gonna post this now, before something else interrupts me!

congratulations! can't wait to see pics - glad all went well and that you are getting settled!! remember you can have my old double bed at our place (after Tomi's visit so he has someplace to sleep!!). Maybe you can send me some marimekko fabrics home w/T&T in exchange?? xo Happy unpacking!

tnx Sis. It feels so great to be in here, and for each day I get more energy to enjoy the fact that we are finally at this stage of our move here to Finland! Will look into the Marimekko options... xoxo
