Moving highlights

We have internet!

We didn’t take many photos during the move (for obvious reasons) but here are some highlights from the first few days of us settling in. {{Don’t worry, once we are actually settled and there aren’t boxes still hanging around – oh yes, there are boxes still hanging around – we will do a little tour of the house.}}

PS. Follow me on Twitter (thezivneys) and Instagram (zivlinny) to see even more of our “everyday” life.

First dinner in the new house!

The house had some pretty horrendous paint in the mudroom/laundry room/bonus room, so one of the first things on our to-do list was to paint that area. See, isn’t it, erm…lovely? {{It was hand painted, so part of me feels really bad about covering it up, buuuuttt, it’s just not “us”.}}

So let’s prime. My parents managed to get everything primed (and even a little painted) before they went home, so now I’ve been working on the rest of the painting little by little.

Even wet, the primer makes a huge difference.

Meanwhile, in the kitchen…

Installing a cat door in our garage door.

What were the kids up to during all this time, you ask?

Oh they were busy snuggling…

And working…

And playing ostrich…

And cleaning… {{just call her “Cinderella”!}}

And climbing onto things…

And trying on old Halloween costumes.

They really love the new house. There’s so much room for them to play in and explore, and the bonus room upstairs is probably the best part. We spend a fair chunk of the afternoon up there horsing around. Addy has been mastering puzzles and is even working on her tracing skills!

A HUGE thank you to my parents, sister and our friends for helping us move and get settled. We seriously couldn’t have done it without you!!!
