This Halloween marks the 9th year we closed on this farm house. These are old pictures, and a stroll down memory lane.

9 years ago was one of the craziest times in my life. Two kids under the age of two, I had just returned to work from maternity leave. My husband and I worked opposite shifts, having two days off together a month.  My kids did not nap at the same time, so I tried to get one sleeping in the car, pack the car, move as much as I could before they woke up. The house had been vacant for a while so I was trying to clean it too.
I remember when my dad came for Thanksgiving and moved us all over here from our other house, only a half mile away.  I just cried and cried, I was so thankful.  But then everything kept breaking and I'd be cloth diapering without a washing machine. Then no dishwasher. Then the water pump broke. And the furnace. Somehow we moved in and didn't shut all the storm windows and were freezing.  And then of course we still needed to sell our other house. It was a year of surviving, I barely remember it.  Would I do it all over again? Absolutely.  I absolutely love our home and would be deeply crushed if we ever had to move.  This is really my dream home and I'm so thankful we get to raise our littles here.
