With Darren & Aleta

Hi everyone,

We've enjoyed our first of two nights with Darren & Aleta. Paul (18 mos.) and Jonathan are entertaining us and keeping us hopping as we teach them how to share with each other! Jonathan has been drooling like crazy-both over the excitement of having a new kitty in the house, and because he just cut tooth #18, another 2-year molar. He's been sleeping at night and napping like a champ, and we're thankful for that.

We re-signed some of our closing papers today because our signatures were not positioned correctly the first time (seriously.) Once those go through, I think we'll have officially closed on our new house. The former owners discovered that when they had the kids' rooms painted pink, the professional painters spilled paint on the rug and covered the spill with furniture. So, Jonathan's room will have a nice pink splat on the floor that we will also likely cover with furniture. :)

We dropped "Toto" the car off today to be shipped to our new home, so now we're "homeless" and down to one car (the newer one.) We're thankful for the hospitality of so many friends during our time of transition!

In a few minutes, we're going to dinner at P.F. Chang's-a big favorite for us. As you can tell by this not-so-newsy post, not much is going on, but even that is something to be thankful for!

We're excited to get home and see you all once more!

Currently we're snowed in, but we'll make it back by the 2nd. That's our goal!!!

Love, the Elliotts
