Weekend Rewind~The In-Laws aren't COMING anymore!

Ok, well the in-laws aren't coming anymore...they're here! Hubby's parents arrived on Wednesday to a completely empty house. Well except for a little bit of food, a BMW that was delivered a few days earlier, & a mattress & box spring...the house was completely empty.  And it would stay that way until Friday morning when the moving truck aka MOVING SEMI arrived on Friday morning.  In a matter of a little less than 36 hours, the movers transported all 450 items (1 box = 1 item) from the moving truck to the house. 

I failed to take any pictures of the boxes stacked everywhere...but let's just say that it's just a wee-bit overwhelming and I know they're going to be so happy to have their new house in order. We are so incredibly happy to have them within a quick 30 minute drive from us, after being in Michigan and 800 miles away for almost 11 years! 

Friday night we planned dinner with the in-laws at one of our favorite local Mexican places, Maria's.  Elyse has been trying to officially welcome her first tooth the past few days so our evening was cut fairly short as she was a little bit grumpy...and I can't say that I blame her. 

Saturday I worked in the morning while Hubby spent some quality time with Elyse (aka they took a morning nap together).  We had a quick lunch at home & then headed back up to my in-laws house to help with a little bit of unpacking.  My SIL & nephews were also there and those boys just love Elyse to fun to watch them play together! 
Hubby, Elyse, Jackson, & Hunter

Can you see her precious dimples?!?
Saturday evening we introduced them to another favorite local place...Big Whiskey's.  My parents joined us for dinner & we all had a blast as Elyse started talking in some new ways & was just full of energy.  Thankfully she was in a much better mood than the night before! 

Sunday we decided to let Hubby's mom & dad enjoy some quality alone time with the moving boxes and after church we came down to enjoy my parents' pool!  Elyse is such a water baby & I just hope that she loves it as much next year as she has this year! 
Hanging out in Mommy's raft with her toys!

Yeah I hat is awesome!  ha!  It's hubby's and it was keeping the sun off my face! 

Having some peaches for dessert...she LOVED them! 

All dressed in her Under Armour onesie with a football in her arms...I know that her Uncle Nick is so proud! 
It was a fabulous weekend and it's still a little hard to believe that Nick's parents are now officially Missouri residents!  Woohoo for another free babysitter!

Looks like it was a great weekend!! That first tooth seems like one of the hardest for them to cut too for some reason..hope she gets it in soon with NO more pain!
