The Hap Happiest New Year's

Us Austin's spent New Year's Eve morning frantically throwing our valuables in boxes. Why? Because we had an appt at 11a to sign the papers for our home.

We jetted from Bickleton to Kennewick and signed our lives away. We were able to do our walk through and get the keys right after.

We took a family lunch break before unloading the car/truck/trailer. We unpacked and did a little cleaning before ordering pizza for our move in feast.

Bedtime was about 9p, but technically I was awakened at 12a by the neighborhood setting off fireworks. So I'll count that as ringing in the New Year.

I had wonderful dreams of paint colors and bossing Cody around in my mission to improve and update the home. At 5:30a on New Year's day I was up and ready for more action. Reagan was right behind me at 6:15a. Once Cody was up we managed to pull ourselves away from organizing to enjoy the morning over a hot cup of joe and cold pizza.

Cody took a trip to Home Depot for some items, and when he came home we both finished our first diy projects! Cody installed a new lock and bolt set on our front door and I applied a frosted window cling to our front door decorative window. Neither project was anything to write home about, but we both felt very accomplished with our small steps.

Reagan seems to be loving her new digs, she has been running around being crazy. Most important she has been sleeping great! Even took a 2.5 hour nap today, and that happens, uhhhh never. Litterally the first time she has ever napped that long.

And now, Cody is off to work- Reagan and I are enjoying a little couch time and watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The original of course.

The rest of my to-do's for the day are: spaghetti, bath for her, shower for me and bed for us both!

Pretty damn good start to 2014!

Cheers to the New Year!
