House update! The final one before we move in!

So, after signing, scanning, and e-mailing many, many forms, We have a projected closing date of the 20th! I am so excited but it's now crunch time and I have packing, cleaning and organizing to do. I wish we had the keys now so I could go ahead and start moving stuff but I know we won't until closing date. I also need to call and have our utilities transferred to the new house and all that fun stuff. It will be cutting it pretty close to Christmas, though. And the Sunday before, Jordan starts a new schedule at work where he'll be forking from 4pm to 12 midnight. Our land lords also plan on moving into the duplex when we move out so I need to get on the ball.

I wish I had pictures to share, but the only ones I have are on the appraisal and I don't know how to get them. But. I'll post some once we move in. This is so exciting and scary all at the same time.

In other news, we have all of the girls' Christmas presents. They came this week and I think they'll have a pretty good Christmas. We got Rosslyn a Beauty and the Beast tea set that has a cart with it, a princess figurine doll set, some Disney princess shirts, a pair of Pocahontas moccasins, and we're getting her a game for the Kinect. I'm not sure which one though. We can't decide between Disnelyand Adventures and Sesame Street Once Upon a Monster.

As for Aurelia, we got her a stuffed owl from Winnie the Pooh, A stuffed Pocahontas doll, a Toy Story 3 figurine set, a talking cooking pot with vegetables, and a talking picnic basket.

Jordan told me not to get him anything for Christmas but there's a really nice cardigan from the Gap that I want to get him. He says I can get something but I don't know what I want. Or if I want anything. Maybe we'll buy stuff for each other after Christmas.

That's pretty much all of the updates I have. I am off school for winter break and don't have to go back until January and hopefully, with my projected academic plan, I'll be able to graduate with my associate's degree in December 2012! Then I can start subbing and have a bit of extra money coming in. So hopefully, the next post you see from me will be in our new house!!

Congrats!! I can't wait to see pictures :) We had a tight schedule to when we moved. The people that bought our rental were living in a hotel waiting on our VA appraisal to go thru because the owners jumped the gun a bit. It was a crazy mess but we are so glad to own our own home now, even when we have to fix it ourselves, lol
Congrats again!!
