Yes, moving sucks. Packing, cleaning, more packing, loading; none of it is fun! I have concluded at least one thing from our recent packing experience- we have too much crap! Yup, our young family has 19,000 lbs worth of household crap! Anyway, the act of moving is not the only thing that sucks. Starting over is not always fun when you are perfectly content where you are. This is really the first time that I am not more excited about what lies ahead than sad of what I'm leaving behind. Does that make sense? The words are not coming to me but all I know is that I have an amazing group of friends in New Jersey that I don't want to leave! Friends that are up for just about anything I can come up with and who will also put up with my energetic crazy kids! I am looking forward to new experiences in Florida and taking advantage of DisneyWorld being so close and chances are good that we will make new friends. Plus, the best thing about good friends is that you don't have to live in the same place to maintain the relationship! Enough moving talk for one day, time to enjoy sleeping kids!

My first blog post will be Addison and Zack's 4th birthday party! We decided to have their party awhile before their birthday so they could celebrate with our New Jersey friends. We chose the park on base because the playground is great and we were able to rent a bounce house. The theme was Florida since that's where we're headed and that way I didn't have to worry about trying to fit in two themes! Jeremy and I made two cupcake cakes: a palm tree and a sun and they turned out great (and much easier than the cakes we made last year)! We had sme rain at the beginning of the party but it quickly cleared up and I think all the kids had a great time. We ended with a trip to Jeremy's squadron so the kids (and adults) could go on the airplane and even sit in the cockpit! Jeremy surprised me and all the kids with a name patch complete with Navy wings of gold! A great party overall. We really confused them though. After the party, they both asked me of they were 4 now and when I told them no, they asked why and just didn't get it! I can't believe they will be 4 in just over a week! Where does the time go?
