Orders?...Anyone?...Does anyone have orders?

The move is supposed to start happening Monday. Key words: SUPPOSED TO. We still don't have orders and therefore we can't do anything to get this move going in the right direction. It is going to take us 13+ hours to get from Pensacola to Corpus Christi, so we want to leave in the middle of the week next week. In order to do that, our cars need to be packed, the packers need to box up the house, and the movers need to unload the boxes from the house to a truck.

"What's the problem?" you may ask. Well, the problem is that you have to have military orders to get anything scheduled with military moves...and we don't have orders yet! Selections were a week ago! I know, wishful thinking that it could get done within a week, but come on! They want Lane there and classing up on the 8th - which is quickly approaching!

I do have things going on at the house to keep me busy as we await these ever-important orders though. Eden's birthday party is Saturday and she's having her 1st birthday pictures done tomorrow, so there's a lot of prep to be done and I still have to make her a cake for her pictures AND for her party.

Speaking of her party, we've got family coming in town starting today to help with the prep for her party and to help me stay sane - if that's even possible! Mom and Aunt Nana (Pat) will be coming in this evening and Pop, Parker and Uncle Papa (Paul) will be coming in tomorrow evening. Sara - from the good ol' KD days - will be getting here at some point tomorrow as well! Grandma and Grandpa will be getting here Saturday morning before the party and they will have Stephanie, Skylar and Bentley in tow! Ryan can't come because he isn't able to get off work at such short notice. (He was going to be able to make it if this were next weekend, but we all know THAT didn't happen the way we planned!) We are beyond lucky to be able to have so many friends and family from out of town that are able to come help us celebrate in addition to the friends that we will have coming from in town as well!
