update from the South!

We made it to Georgia last week and are settling in slowly but surely.
Little Charlie and his cousin are peas and carrots since reuniting and it feels good to see those two playing again.
My sister Leanna and her family live right outside of Atlanta and we have seen them 3 times already! We love living by family! We went to a family BBQ on Saturday night and had a family dinner on Sunday night!
We attended our new ward with the in-laws last week and the members were very warm and welcoming. There were several moms that came up to me following Sacrament meeting getting my name and number to invite me to mommy playgroups. We feel very loved here and very comfortable in our new town and ward.

creamy tomato soup

This is hands down, the best tomato soup I have EVER had!
Plus, the little one slurps it right up.
Isn't he getting so big eating with a spoon!
It is on the pricier side, but I figure I can serve it for dinner one night
and serve the leftovers for lunch the next day!
I serve it with some grated Parmesan cheese on top and viola!!

moving right along

favorite pastime lately
(I think the pictures show what I'm referring to!)

and he falls over!!

he wasn't too happy

love my mischievous little boy!

Did I mention we are moving?
Ah yes, moving.
Isn't moving splendid? Perhaps for those that are fortunate enough to have someone else pack up their lives.
But really, we have been taking our merry ole' time packing and doing quite a good job at that. My husband is very organized and I am warming up slowly but surely to his style and professional attempt to packing.
Charlie will take off an afternoon to devote his time to packing every thing perfectly.
While I, look for any 2 minutes or 30 seconds to spare and throw baby clothes and shoes into boxes.
See the difference?
Actually, we have been working together this last week and it has made all the difference.
Little Charlie's newborn to 2 year clothes are all packed into old diaper and wipes boxes, neatly labeled and sealed for shipment. Well, not really shipment but sort of.
Today, we opened the garage and began sifting through things we haven't used in 3 years.
Since living in my Aunt Maureen's home, we haven't had to use our wedding presents at all. Dishes, eating utensils, can openers, blenders, every thing we needed was in her kitchen.

We are about 2/3 packed which is looking good. We have 2 more weeks before we head to the South! Georgia that is!
I am beyond thrilled to move to Georgia. I LOVE Georgia. Even more, we will live close to all of Charlie's family! Plus, my sister Leanna and her family will be there too!
Things are looking up and things are moving right along!
