We have had one crazy week around here. Last week we put our house up for sale. On the sixth day we had an offer and with a little negotiating, we sold our house. I was so happy that it was over. It was so hard keeping the house clean, looking after two active toddlers, dinners, laundry, the dog. I had enough! Just when I thought it was all over I was wrong. The couple who bought our house wanted to have an inspection before things were finalized. So the inspector that they hired shows up here along with them and their circus of a family. The inspector decides he's going to rough play with my dog. I guess he figured because the dog was so little he could do this. After 5 minutes of him jumping at the dog and swinging his flashlight at him, my little Malta-poo decided he had enough. He bit him! The guy actually has the nerve to turn to me and tell me that if he does that again he's going to do something to the dog. In a not so nice tone of voice I told the guy to stop jumping at the dog and he won't bite you. I wonder if he would done the same thing if we had a Rottweiller? Within a half an hour of this happening the inspector finishes and leaves. Thank god. The deal is done the house is sold. Just when I think this crazy day is over, the inspector calls our house that night and asks if our dog has up to date shots. Are you kidding me? He's so lucky I didn't answer the phone because I would have had a few not so nice words for him. Along with probably asking him if he was up to date with his shots. Idiot!!!
The day before all this happened we had a nice visit from Angela and Elizabeth. Angi brought some crafts for the girl's to do but the twins were only interested in playing with the paper and eating the candy hearts. Elizabeth was really good at finger painting with pudding. "Thanks Angi for bringing all of that, we'll have to get together again soon".

So now were preparing for our move up to Guelph which is only 8 weeks away! I'm not 100% thrilled about moving for 2 reasons, first I hate moving, and second it's going to be so sad leaving the only house the girl's know. All of their "firsts" happened here. First crawl, first steps, first words, first birthday. I know once we get settled in Guelph everything will be fine. I guess it's just going to take some time.
The picture's I have posted are one's I took over the past week. Check out the one's of Olivia & Elizabeth. They look more like twins.

Congratulations on the sale of your house. You are going to need a nanny to help you pack, move and then unpack. Maybe the girls will their own little way.

The reason I don't want to sell our house is because of the "random" people you have to welcome into your home. You did a great job keeping your cool. Some people just have no class.

When you move to Guelph, you will have to call us. Cole would love to visit with Olivia and Avery. They would have a blast!!

I cannot believe what you have had to put up with!! I have been waiting and waiting for you to blog since it had been a while and wow what an ordeal! I don't know if I would have been able to keep my cool with that inspector like you did!

I love all of the pictures that you have taken, and wow Elizabeth could pass for your girls other sister! I especially love the last adorable is that?!
