We are on the move....

Well, not until next Thursday, but I cannot wait to get into our house.

As we have started to see it all come together I am getting so excited.

This weekend we were over there putting hardware in the cabinets and checking how the progress was coming.

Aly found her room - she was soo excited that they must have known she wanted a purple room.

More pictures to come...

Dear State of PA and my Health Insurance Company

Dear State of PA and my wonderful health insurance company,

It would have been really nice if you had forwarned me that you have no flu shot vaccines left in the state for children under 3. It really is not all that convenient for me to be driving a 7 HOUR roundtrip next Wed so that I can have my children vaccinated by our WONDERFUL pediatrician back in CT.

I like to think that I have patience, but spending multiple hours in a car with my small children only to take them to a place that is going to make them both cry is really not what I would call a joyous roadtrip.

My insurance company when I called them for my options was oh so helpful when they let me know, they have "no idea" where I could find such vaccine but surely it was important to get not only the flu but also the H1N1 "as soon as possible" - Gee Thanks for the info.

I mean seriously - how is it that of the 10 pediatricians I called in PA - no one has the flu shot and they have never seen the H1N1 vaccine and CT has plenty to go around?????

Okay I am done my rant!

Hauntless House

Tonight we went to the kids school for the Hauntless House.

They had soo much fun. We played games and decorated bags and raised money for a great cause.

I have been so impressed with this school.

On another note, everyone thought Brianna was a boy, go figure. She loved the dragon - and has a great ROAR!!!

School Must Be A Hit

Here is Aly this morning, teaching Brianna - she was singing some songs to Brianna trying to teach her the finger play motions.

Apparently they like school.

Here is Brianna - the attentive student that she is.....I don't think that I have seen her sit still this long.

There are not a lot of playing options outside the condo - so this afternoon - we ran road races.

Brianna refused to run without her backpack........it is slightly smaller than her.

We love fall

We spent Columbus Day weekend up in NH - it was fun minus the 7 hour trek up there. We hit the local Pumpkin Festival on Sat with my brother - it was a great time. The kids had fun and it was nice to catch up.

Our First Weekend in PA

We spent the majority of the weekend getting settled in our temporary digs. There were a lot of errands to be run and stores to be found and the girls did great. They were troopers!!

On Sunday we went with our friends to a Fall Festival at a local farm. We rode hayrides and picked pumpkins from the patch. The girls rode horses and watched pig races - it was tons of fun.

We are working on finding a preschool this week and a gym to be a part of. The girls have adjusted great and I am looking forward to getting into our new house!
