We're back!

We flew back into town last Monday. We got back ready to kick it in high gear. With closing on our first home on Thursday and moving scheduled for Friday we only had a couple of days to finish packing. After scrambling around to get all the last papers over to our lender we found out on Wednesday that because of a mistake they made we would not be able to close on Thursday as planned. Which ended up being a blessing in disguise because they ended up giving us an unexpected lenders credit and we won't have a mortgage payment till April which will help us get our finances back on track, finally!

The down side is that when we started packing before we left we planned to be back home for only a couple of days and we were going to be so busy finishing up that we wouldn't even have time to cook or notice all the stuff that was already in boxes. We went from planning to be "living off of boxes" for three days to 8 days! It hasn't been easy but it's coming to an end and we are thrilled for what's coming!!!

Anyway, we had a wonderful time in Mexico. Lots of friends, family, and good food. Not only that but also a very needed week at the beach resting, swimming, and eating to our hearts content. Lots of "firsts" for our little one that we thoroughly enjoyed and the Abuelos where beyond themselves spoiling, holding, changing, and loving on Ethan which gave Bruce and I a very needed break as well as a few date nights with no extra babysitting charge! 

Besides all the "firsts" we lived in Mexico we also lived a couple of very significant events for our family. We had Ethan's dedication with the Pastor/dear friend that officiated our wedding and celebrated Ethan's 7 months with our friends and family there. Since we won't be there when he turns one, we decided to throw him a 7 month monster party which was a big success.  

I leave you with some pictures:

First flight, First Vacation, First Time Swimming, First Time at the Beach!

Thank you Abuelos for the best Christmas present ever!

More on the party and the dedication soon, stay tuned!
