The move has been made. I repeat...THE MOVE HAS BEEN MADE. At 9 a.m. on the nose Wednesday morning the movers arrived and got straight to work. I dropped the girls off at my mother-in-laws and the day began.
I feared the day would be filled with shouting and words not to be repeated among kids, the breaking of precious items, & extreme exhaustion. I would like to be able to say these moments happened and are now funny, but it was all calm on the home front. I would like to credit American Eagle Moving Co. out of Birmingham with the bliss of our move. They were prepared, organized, and very careful of our home goods. I recommend them to anyone!
Today is Friday and I finally have almost every box out of the house and broken down. The girls are still adjusting. AK loves her new room & the playroom. She says its, "Beautiful." Palmer just keeps trying to scale the stairs and then runs circles starting in the kitchen, moving on to the dining room, then in to the family room, and takes a turn in to the foyer to make her loop back to the beginning. She proceeds to do this over and over and over.....
Blake is FINALLY starting to settle in. Even at 17 months she is not a fan of change. She cried mainly the whole first day but now is starting to get her bearings.
I now am ready to get my decorate on! Jeff, probably not so much. The extra space is so nice and being so close to everything in Hoover is just peachy! Hello Hoover..The Morans have arrived.

New Year...New Blog

2012 has arrived and might I say rather quickly. 2010 was such a insane year for our family it made 2011 look totally normal. Well normal for the Morans. It was a year of growing and learning and hair pulling. Now that that the girls are running towards turning 2 (OH MY WORD) I just didn't feel like "OH BABY 2010" was still what described our life. New things are happening and we must all keep up with the times. The blog was feeling left out. The old blog will still be there so you can read the old post, but all new information will be on this one.
Controlled Chaos! I felt the title was very appropriate. To most my life does seem chaotic. I don't really understand why though. I mean doesn't everyone have three little girls under the age of three running around, pulling stuff out of the trash, knocking stuff over, and completely disheveling their lives? It does look chaotic to the onlookers (and honestly most of the time it is) but hey I know whats going which makes me feel in control. I can honestly say I don't feel like a spinning top anymore. updates for our new year.
1. The Morans are moving! Yes you read that right. M-O-V-I-N-G! Our lovely 1770 sqft. house that Jeff & I built in 2006 has finally screamed at us...GET OUT! We are moving to a new house in Riverchase. I love it. It is larger and accommodates our ever growing family. Oh and wait for has a PLAYROOM! Praise the Lord because he is good. I just don't think I will know what to do without having to spend my day bending over in every room picking up toys. The move takes place next week and it can't get here fast enough.
2. Blake & Palmer are precious! Their personalities are shining brighter than ever. Each day they say more and do more. They have really gotten closer and are enjoying playing with each other and making each other laugh. Its wonderful. If only we could keep Palmer out of that dang trashcan.
3. My sis started a online business. She is carrying cloth diapering supplies and such. I am very proud of her and I know it will be such a success. Once the site is LIVE I will post it on here. We are cloth diapering and saving money and loving it.

I believe that is all of the new year updates so far. I am excited about 2012. Lots of fun already in store. Two girlfriends finally tying the knot, I will be turning 3-0, and a possible trip to Disney in the works. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.
