Fun Fall Day



The girls enjoyed playing outside on this warm fall day. Emma got her first experience at playing in the leaves. She loves to mimic Darya's actions. I'm trying my hand at posting a video on the blog. LOL.

Riverfront Property



We have been busy over the last four weeks preparing to buy a house in Poca. During our last boating adventure on October 20, my mom had spotted an open house in the newspaper. With his great sense of navigation, my dad was able to find the property along the river. We docked the boat and went up to the open house. We couldn't believe all the pluses about this house. We had been talking for the last 6+ months about getting a fairly large piece of property and building a house with my parents (in-law wing). The description on the flyer read "great in-law quarters". The house is 3700+ square feet and is situated on 5+ acreas with 750 square feet of riverfront property. We placed an offer on the house before we had made it back to the marina. Our biggest dilema was to sell two houses! Our house went into contract approximatel two weeks after it went on the market. My parent's house just went into contract on Saturday. We are planning on closing our house and the new house during the week of December 10. I guess we will be decorating for Christmas as we unload the boxes from the UHAUL.
We are trying to begin the tedious task of packing boxes. Darya will also have to change schools after the Christmas break. She is a little nervous about meeting new friends, but we don't think our social butterfly will have any trouble adjusting to new school.
We look forward to having family and friends at our new abode. There will be plenty of room for everyone to play!
