Well... WE MOVED!!! Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020

 We hired movers--and I'm glad we did! They brought their semi truck because it was what they recommended.
 The shed in our new back yard.  I think those are a couple of old-fashioned rose bushes to the right of that green bush along the wall of the shed.
We strong-armed our son to come and help us move.... he and his dad enjoying the first day of sunshine we'd seen all week---something I specifically asked for (no rain!!!!).
The new kitchen (picture from the real estate site) at the new house. 
The "before" picture of only one room in the old house! 
We only moved about 7 miles north of the old house.... but this one is MUCH easier to get around (versus the 2-story 1920 house we lived in for the past 23 years!).
Alex and Samantha (our kids) trying to figure out where to start unboxing!

Maybe Mondays don't end on Monday??? Wednesday, April 10th, 2019

 Maxwell (grandson, 19 months old) at his house in Minnesota last week while we were there babysitting (while his parents went to London on vacation!).
 Wyatt on Saturday enjoying the warmer temperatures at his house.
 Bogie, trying to keep warm today because the furnace broke (again and again and again and again.....), and it's gotten much colder since last Saturday!!!
 The old van John uses to get around when he's at the other end of the road needed work, too.  Sunday when I got home the water heater was under water again because a drain in the basement backed up.  What will happen next?
 Miss Olivia's unicorn hat looks lovely with her art clothes at her preschool yesterday.
 Mr. Wyatt at day care playing outside Monday.
Wyatt enjoying his lunch at day care the other day.

My brother's 60th birthday party!! March 31, 2019

 This is our nephew, Joe, and his new daughter, Avery Jo.
 That's Elysce (Adeline, Avery, Ava and Asher's mom) with Adeline (in high chair) and Ava and my mom across from her.  That's my son-in-law, Marty, my hubby, John, and our daughter, Samantha at the table behind them.
 Elycse and Avery Jo (at Mema's after the party).
 This is our nephew, Ben (Joe's little brother) holding his new niece.
 The 'birthday boy' holding his new granddaughter for the first time.
 We are a little bit of a Cubs household so we had the party at the Iowa Cubs restaurant (Cub Club) yesterday.  It was fun and the view was nice.  There wasn't a game yet (opening day is April 9th!!), but it was still fun.
 The view of the ball park from the Cub Club.
 "Uncle Billy" (Audrey and Izaac's dad) with Wyatt.
