Madd Max Have The House Saged

Holly Rose has now saged all three of the homes Sam and Jess have shared.  It was important that she sage the new house before the family spent the night - a fresh, clean, warm slate.
All openings blessed.

Madd Max Will Miss The Old House

Jess will particularly miss the kitchen floor, which she laid when Sam and she first moved in.
And this closet.
Which is actually a ladder to get to the crawl space, something that wooed both Sam and Jess when they first viewed 2101 N Rose.

Madd Max Get Visitors At The New House

The Leonhardts stopped by, as did Alison.
Then back to the old house for some cleaning and an exhausted nap in a car seat.
Then back to the new house for a quick stop over by the Findleys.

Madd Max Live The High Life

Full sized fridge in the bedroom.

Madd Max Move

 Giddy with excitement, there was some mad swinging as the movers began loading the truck.
 The very big truck.
 Some running thru the partially empty house.
 A break at the new house for some hockey.
 When the movers paused for lunch, Jess and the kids rushed over to celebrate Annie and Maggie's birthday.
And what happens when your floors aren't finished and you have to put stuff somewhere.

Madd Max Spend A Last Night

At the old house with aerobeds and the TV.

Madd Max Take Out The Floors

With the old vinyl flooring taken out, the original subfloor was exposed.  Also exposed was a 1944 penny that had been underneath the original hardwood.  This inspired Sam to put back not only that penny, but also a 2003 penny (the year Sam and Jess were married) by the door to the master bedroom and a 2012 penny (since no 2013 were able to be located), all of which will be covered by the new hardwood floors.

And Maddie got in some play time with Edith and Shanna.

Slappy Finds The Holes

The laminate floors are pulled up.  Maddie enjoyed finding every loose sub-floor board and attempting to pull it up with her toes.

A classic game.

And Max hanging all by himself.

Madd Max Spend Their First Day In The New House

 Where Uncle Wills thought of the funniest game ever.
 And Maddie took it upon herself to measure the outlets, calling out, "1, 2, 3 and 4."
And a first family meal, In-and-Out, was had.

Madd Max Are Excited

 At the arrival of Uncle Wills.  Although not as excited as Sam and Jess, since he arrived on the night before they were able to get into the new house, ie Look!  Here's someone to help us!
