Army Dudes 6th Birthday

Our first Birthday Party in the new house was last weekend, we celebrated it early so G'ma could partake since she was leaving for OH to finish packing up her Condo now that she living with us. His real Birthday is tomorrow and we have a little surprise planned. Here are some fun pics of our get together.
It was a small family get together since we haven't really met anyone with kids as of yet. Both G'mas were able to come and my Sister which was so nice!

The rule is NOT to throw anything over the balcany but we let the kids throw his Army parachute guys just this once...

Look at all this wall space I have to decorate...I'm so excited to get started!

Enjoy your Weekend!

Are We Home or Just Visiting? House Pics Included in Your Stay!

Don't they look so Excited! This was after a full day of driving that took 2 days to get to FL.


This is our 2 story 5 bedroom new rental, I did manage to find the time to hang my Americana wreath on the front door.

This is our front formal living room..

Very huge kitchen...My Roosters have got to somehow get to the top of the cabinets...lol...

Our eating area....not much of a backyard compared to our almost 6 back in OH.

This would be the family room but it will be part sewing room for my Mom and office space for my Husband...A room with many hats!

I know it's not very pretty right now and really boring. It took me 4 years to make my Farm house comfy cozy and now we move to FL...

Any and All decorating ideas for these HUGE walls Please??!!

I'm Linking Up to Kara for her Wassup Wednesday and

Country Mouse and City Mouse~ Part 2

Hello!! It feels like a lifetime ago since I sat down to post. How is everyone doing? We are finally settling in here. 

After thinking we were going to move to Washington D.C. for a new job Richard received a call from Nemours Children's Hospital here in Orlando FL. They are opening up a brand new Hospital and saw Richards resume online and called him to come for an interview, he informed them that he had already accepted a position but was open for talking so he went and was hired within the week.

So we had to find a house in Orlando and move with less than 2 weeks...We did it!! We still need to go back and clean up our farmhouse and rent a U-Haul for some leftovers in about 2 months. My Mom has moved in with us and she still has to finish moving too but really we are having fun setting up house.

This is NOT our house but very close to it, I'm charging my camera now for pics later. It's in a lovely gated community with private boat dock and a Elementary School within walking distance. There are so many kids playing outside in the evening and my kiddos love it. It's a huge change from our 6 acres and no noise but we hope that this will start to feel like home very soon.

Before we left OH we donated HOSS our Horse to a rescue that gives the horses a Forever home. We brought our dogs Coffee and Sniffer and they traveled pretty well in the car and slept in the hotel okay, we could tell Sniffer was very scared but Coffee went along and after getting comfy, she snored!

Richard starts his job tomorrow and we are wishing him the very best and I'm hoping to have most of the house unpacked and done when he gets home. I hate the feeling of not being able to find my stuff around me...hahah..Later this week I need to get all 3 enrolled into the school here.

I do need to revamp my decorations as all of my farmhouse decorations simply looks odd in this FL style house. If you have any ideas Please share!!
