The move

Well things have been a little crazy the last few weeks. Not as crazy as the last time we moved though. We are officially out of Ogden. We had some great help moving. Doug and Rochelle came out to Ogden to help load the Pods and let us stay at their house for a week and have done countless other things to help us with the move. Mom came out and watched the kids while we loaded and unloaded. Jimmy Joe and Joanna helped paint and sheetrock some. Hannah came out all day and helped with lots of things. Johnny came out real quich when we needed him. Our pod driver was a crazy man and yelled at us a lot. We ended up needing to unload the entire pod in about an hour. Me johnny doug and ethan were able to do it.
I can't even begin to say how much we love our new house. It feels like a mansion compared to our ogden house. Gas tanks last longer. Our washer and dryer are not in our kitchen. Our ward is full of younger couples like us. We have great neighbors. We are so happy here. We will be here for a long time. We feel so blessed to have found this house. We love love love living here.
Here are some pix from the move.

Johnny saved the day with his jeep. We had to move someone
elses trailer cause the crazy pod guy was looking for every
excuse he could find not to leave our other pod.

This is the only photo we have of outside our home. We will get
some more up later of the inside. This is hannah, aprils
mom standing there by the pod.

so nice to have you here I can hardly wait to see the house all put together. Let's have a house warming party and get the house all broke in. JJ loves those pjs Joanna is trying to get rid of them.

Mom, let's leave the breaking in of the house to Davey and April... Davey and April we LOVE LOVE LOVE having you here. There is still tons of fun yet to be had.
BTW, I think I probably should have made it into at least 2 pictures for all the help that I did:)
