We moved at the end of September so it's been very hectic! We only moved about 8 miles away, so it's working out well. Daddy is a little closer to work and doesn't have to deal with RTP traffic and we are the same distance to church/preschool, so that's good. We really like our new neighborhood and our new house! Mia has adjusted well so far, which was a big worry of ours. I think kids do better than we do sometimes! Anyway, here are some pictures from the move and our new house.

Packing up....

Everything is almost loaded!

New house!

Ohio Trip

Daddy's cousin Jennifer got married recently, so we made the trip to Ohio for the wedding. Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle Greg, Aunt Nancy, and Mackenzie went as well and it was fun spending time with family that we don't get to see very often. Mia did great during the long ride, thanks to our friends Thom and Sue letting us borrow their portable dvd player. It was a lifesaver! Friday we went to the rehearsal dinner and then the wedding was Saturday outdoors. Mia had a good time and especially loved dancing with everyone at the reception! She still talks about "Aunt Jennifer," Sophie, and Abby all the time.

Mia and Mackenzie right after the ceremony.

Having fun dancing at the reception. Yes her baby doll "Castle" had to go too.
With the bride "Aunt Jennifer."

On Sunday, everyone else headed back but we decided to drive the hour and a half to go to the Columbus zoo. We had a great time, but we were worn out by the afternoon! We drove back to WV and stayed the night there and headed back Monday. Mia still talks about our trip to Ohio!

Checking out the manatees. I like how you can see Mia's reflection in the glass.

Getting ready to ride the carousel.

The kangaroos. This was the best part! You could walk in and they were right there. There was nothing keeping you from them.

Daddy and Mia were trying to feed some birds. I got this picture just as the bird bit Daddy's finger. If you look closely, you can see the nectar spilling and see his mouth wide open.

Back in September, Mia took a soccer class. They ended up putting her in a class that was too old for her....she did ok at the beginning when they would play games like "red light, green light," but she didn't like any of the fundamental drills they did. By the next to last class she decided that she just wanted to sit on the bench and wait until the end of the class so she could "get a stamp." I think we'll have to try soccer again in a year or two......

First day of class

Mia's First Day at Preschool

I know I am really late on these posts, but I promise I am going to try to do better! Mia started preschool in September and she loves it! She was so cute on the first day of school. When we were driving there, she said, "You can just drop me off Mommy!" I walked her to her class and she walked right in....I was so proud of her!
