Closing was set to happen on November 30th and then we had to be out of our house by December 3rd. Between the time we got the contract and the time we closed, we had 6 weekends, only 2 of which we were actually home. Whew! We had a trip to New York for the marathon, then Pennsylvania after that and were also gone for Thanksgiving. It was a busy month to say the least! And to top things off, Caroline got pink eye and I got it TWICE! Although Josh had trained all year, the marathon getting cancelled was actually a blessing and gave us a good solid, unplanned weekend where we were able to get quite a bit done. We started getting nervous that we wouldn't be able to do everything so my parents graciously offered to come down and help! They were absolutely LIFESAVERS and I'm not sure how we would have done it with out them! My mom packed a ton on Friday during naps and my dad made A TON of trips back and forth, getting us all ready for the movers. Then they took the kids all weekend and pretty much just kept them out of our hair. I think Grami and Pop Pop were quite tired after it all, but the kids had a blast!
They visited Merry Madagascar ICE at the Gaylord Texan and then stopped by Rainforest Cafe for lunch! After searching all dat and not finding a Gloria doll, Caroline settled for an elephant animal and Cooper came home with an elephant hat. Those kids sure have them wrapped around their fingers!
Cooper LOVES this picture and carries it around everywhere with him saying "Madagascar" as fast as he can!
Grami's camera froze up from being so cold, but they managed to get some cute pictures in the lobby of this amazing hotel!
