I haven't blogged about our big news because we've been waiting for things to progress. Thanksgiving weekend we got an offer on our condo!! We were originally trying to close (simultaneously on selling our condo and on buying our new house) by Dec. 21st. Unfortunately, everyone working toward approving financing have been taking too many holiday hours (3 people working instead of 10), they're swamped trying to close many other loans that all say urgent, and even once it is approved you still have to wait 24 hours for everything to go through. We found out today (Dec. 30th) that our loan has been APPROVED! But we're still waiting for our buyer's loan to go through. Our loan officer said if it weren't for the holidays, we would have already had approval and possibly closed by now. We WILL close sometime next week. :)
SOOOO, because we thought we might be moving before Christmas, we ONLY put up our 3ft tree with no ornaments this year. Here's McKenna's loot before we opened presents Christmas morning.
This is McKenna's "I seek" smile. She closes her eyes really tight and scrunches her nose. It's super cute!
One of her favorite presents of the day- a teddy bear from Grandma Kelly.
Our 90 year old neighbor gave her this inflatable bouncy horse that she also adores!
My parents and local siblings came to watch Kenna open her gifts and to have our traditional German pancakes and apple cider syrup breakfast.
Later, we opened presents with Dan's family. I didn't take too many pictures there.
Then we visited with my mom's parents. My dad was leaving the next day, so I had to get a few cute pictures of them together. Kenna's trying to hide in the first one.
Here's her "I seek" face again. :)
This picture sums up the day! She's bouncing on her horse, admiring her new stickers, binkie in mouth after a 30 min car ride, holding a new blanket for baby brother from my mom's mom. Good times!
In baby news, I went to the doctor today (Dec. 30th). I'm 80% effaced and only dialated to a 1 and 3/4. No real contractions either. My babies like to cook a little more than 40 weeks I guess. I have an induction date for Friday the 7th, but I sure hope he comes before then. I finally packed a hospital bag last night...just in case. :)
