Home sweet home

We made it home late last night and I am already going at full speed trying to get things squared away before closing on Tuesday. It will be nice when it is all done!

The trip to Chicago was a lot of fun. I think it was the most stress free Hudson family function I have ever attended! Bryn really bonded with cousin Lili and they had a lot of fun playing hide and seek and various animal games together. We stopped on the way home to visit some friends in Iowa - we had a nice dinner and got to watch a whole lot of hot air balloons fly over as it was hot air balloon festival time there.

My friend, Tiffani, had her baby girl on Friday - hopefully Bryn and I can head over there today to see her.

No specific plans for this week - just packing and preparing for the move. We can't wait to be in and settled - it is still hard to believe we will finally have our own house!

So glad to hear you had such a nice time! "Stress-free" and "family gathering" rarely seem to appear in the same sentence, do they? How wonderful that they did this go-round!

I'm sure you're glad to home none-the-less. But whew...what a busy, but exciting time you've got ahead, huh? I don't envy the busy part, but oh what fun it will be moving into your very own home!!! I cannot wait to start seeing pictures as you get yourselves settled!

Good luck with everything! Sure wish we were there to help.

Good luck! I miss the move-in days. There was a week or two there, right after the unpacking and right before life settled back in, when the house was actually clean. Now I can't move because it would mean trying to get the house that clean again.

It did sound like you guys had a blast in Chicago! I'm glad to hear you had a good trip back, including the stop to visit and see the hot air balloons. I know you'll be busy, but have fun and enjoy this time. It's so exciting about the new house - have fun and take some pictures for us!

Good luck with everything and have a great week :)

So glad y'all had a nice vacation!

Ya know, Pioneer Woman (a blogger) was in Chicago and at the American Girl place at the same time. She blogged and posted pictures of it! Y'all might have passed each other.

I didn't realize closing time was so soon! Whew! How exciting!
