2 Days Until We Move

Ember thinks she is very helpful these days. She’ll stumble upon a pile of organized items and pick up pieces and walk to the nearest box and toss them in. Then she claps with a huge grin on her face. I’ve found toys in the bathroom boxes, dishes in the office supply boxes, etc. It’s fun. I haven’t been really frustrated by it all because it keeps her in eyesight to have her messing with my boxes in the same room as I am in, but it is difficult to completely finish packing certain boxes wihle she’s around.

The main rooms of my home are really messy. It’s funny how a clean freak like me, who normally can’t feel settled in a messy home, can accept the mess with a shrug because we’re moving and it’s just part of the package of that… I mean, normally I’d feel twitchy looking at these rooms but this week… *shrug*

Brooklyn discovered the kids’ preschool song CDs in a box that had been packed away the last four months and was pretty darn excited. We’ve been listening to those CDs on repeat ever since 🙂

I filled up every last square inch of free space in our SUV with stuff to donate and took a trip to Goodwill. I think I probably have two more of those trips in store for me. While we were out we stopped at KFC. We’re very low on food since I haven’t been grocery shopping in a while since we’re moving.
The rest of these pictures are from our little lunch out.

Ariana: “What are you doing, Payson?”
Payson: “I’m being a scary monster!!”

The older girls were thrilled about the honey packets for the biscuits. Can’t blame them. Yum.

The older girls spent some time around the condiment stand. They ate (drank?) an extra honey packet and then were daring each other to eat a hot sauce packet.

Ember, meanwhile, was refusing every single type of food and instead running from empty table to empty table having a grand ol’ time.

She stopped back at our table long enough to taste some rootbeer for the first time.

She was pretty surprised by the taste and not in a good way! haha

The girls each took a swig of hot sauce and giggled. Well, Sierra giggled and Brooklyn tried to keep from throwing up! haha. She has a hard enough time not throwing up when she eats regular old food items (she is extremely picky) so I wasn’t surprised. Surprised she was willing to even taste the hot sauce packet, though!

And just now Ember is taking a nap for the first time in a week and I am going to try to get some boxes packed!!
