Today was the day to tackle the garage. You have no clue how exciting it is to have a garage.  Wow. yes, we have a driveway, a garage and an ice maker on the fridge. Boy, this is great! I’ll tell you the full story soon.  Everyday I seriously pinch myself that we are able to live here. I love everything about this place. The family who lived here prior was as amazing as it gets and has given us such a blessing. I just can’t get over it.

But I’ll stop cuz I need to tell you what happened when I was cleaning the garage. And no, no gross bug or dead birds or stashes of money, just WISDOM. So I am cleaning and I need to run out to the  end of the driveway (yes, I said driveway, MY driveway) to check on Gabe. He was playing with a sweet neighbor boy named Joe. I tell Joe I’m real tired of cleaning the garage. He looks at me with those eyes of a 6 yr old and says, “Mrs. DeMarchis, don’t waste your time doing something you don’t like waste your time doing something you like.” Yes, he’s 6.

I have so many things to post, you still need to meet Sam. I love that cat. We love that cat. You need to see the house and my new cute chair. Oh, and my new painting, The Smoker. I lucked out and traded Anne a painting for my trailer we used for art fairs! Always love a good trade.

And how about 2 Hammond Bay numbers. Wait 3…..4410, 56 and 50.  Now how about who ever can tell me what these represent we’ll get you a little surprise. First one in takes the cake.

4410 is a winner
56 is a winner
50 is a winner

4410 your new address

Kim S - March 14, 2010 - 9:04 pm

4410 is the number of your old house? 56 yrs and 50 yrs are the ages of your new and old house? Congrats!

Beautifulclothing - March 13, 2010 - 8:32 pm

Man….has nobody guessed right yet. I thought for sure that 4410 was your previous address and 5650 is your new address.

Jessica Johnson - March 13, 2010 - 7:29 pm

4-4-10 is your anniversary, 5o years is al long as your parnets have been married and 56 years is how long your In laws have been married! 🙂 My husband spoils me and our girls with some MJC! step 1 to making your wife happy 🙂

Jessica Johnson - March 13, 2010 - 7:22 pm

4-4-10 is your anniversary. 50 is how many pairs of painted shoes you had, and 56 is 5 and 6 are the ages of your boys ( I have to say I don’t know the ages of your boys but they are soo cute!

Ashley Pequignot - March 13, 2010 - 12:33 pm

noelle s - March 12, 2010 - 9:38 pm

4/4/10 is easter and you are planning to have an easter egg hunt with 56 hidden eggs and 50 tulips planted after the kids tromp all over the yard! I love your little mystery games.

Chelle Belle / Alchemist - March 12, 2010 - 5:50 pm

4410 is your old house number and 56 is the age in years of the old house. 50 is the age of your new house? I wore my mossy willow today and it is so great! MJC rocks!

Jessica Johnson - March 12, 2010 - 3:34 pm

4410 is how many orders you had the first day!
56 Your favorite number?
50 your parents have been married this long.
Love my stuff! Just got Ava’s Wendy Tiered dress today and she put it on right out of the box and ran straight to our neighbor’s house to tell her best friend ” I just got my NEW matilda Jane dress today don’t you love it?”

Beautifulclothing - March 12, 2010 - 1:24 pm

Oh my goodness. The new clothing is adorable. I just came from my open house and bought a couple items. I would have bought it all if I had the funds. Are you enjoying cleaning your new garage at 5650? lol

ForMy2MJGirls - March 12, 2010 - 12:45 pm

I have no idea, but my wife says to guess 4410 is your old address and 5650 is your new address.

katie - March 11, 2010 - 8:20 pm

4410-garage code. I’m guessing not….you wouldn’t all of us to know that;)

RachelR - March 11, 2010 - 6:50 pm

Love seeing familiar cuties up on the blog!

That boy of yours is too stinkin funny D! lol

fruit punch tulip - March 11, 2010 - 5:32 pm

If you spend at least an hour with someone under the age of six, you can’t help but walk away with some wisdom – or at the very least a big smile on your face. They really do live a simple / stress free life. Can’t wait to see the house, the chair & Sam.

gran - March 11, 2010 - 5:21 pm

The numbers must be the address numbers which have been guessed many times over but the other whimsical answers have brought smiles as they were read. Your neighbor Joe is certainly a wise boy. I know you will record that comment and it is one that all of us would do well to remember.
Happy for the DeMarchis Family and all the new memories that will be a part of this home. Looking forward to pictures.

Stephanie Lake - March 11, 2010 - 2:00 pm

It is my measurements…had a baby 8 months ago. It is either that or close to the amount of money I spent on MJ recently (still looking forward to my order – gosh, when will it get here)??????

Brandie - March 11, 2010 - 12:55 pm

4-4-10 Easter Sunday and 5650 is the square ft. in your new home????:-) Please tell me part of my guesses are right…LOL hehe

Lil - March 11, 2010 - 12:53 pm

4410 Pembroke Ln the old home of yours and where the starting of Matilda Jane…

5650 being the home # of the Scott and Linda Miller old home,
Now the new home of the Mr & Mrs. David DeMarchis

Sounds as if Gabe has a very smart and polite friend, cuz i love what 6 year old Joe had to say, the words of wisdom from a small little man….

Most mostly I am happy for you and your NEW DREAM home and and the fact that you finally got THAT painting “The Smoker” from Anne, you have been wanting it as long as I can re-call being a MJ fan.
Your going to have a great year.. Enjoy your blessings <3

Brandie - March 11, 2010 - 12:45 pm

4-4-10 is Easter Sunday, and 5650 is your new addy????

Brandie - March 11, 2010 - 12:32 pm

Or…it’s the 1 year anniversary at the new building and your new addy????

Brandie - March 11, 2010 - 12:31 pm

Is it…4410 orders made for Hammond Bay 2010….the number of employees and the number of trunk keepers????

Beautifulclothing - March 11, 2010 - 11:18 am

I am not guessing anymore b/c I am right with the 4410 being your old address on Pembroke Ln. and 5650 being your new address. Enjoy cleaning your garage.

Beautifulclothing - March 11, 2010 - 11:07 am

5650 is your new address now. 4410 is your previous address on Pembroke Lane.

Beautifulclothing - March 11, 2010 - 10:53 am

4410 previous address. 56 days till Art Fair and 50 new cookie tanks coming out in April.

Beautifulclothing - March 11, 2010 - 10:45 am

I know that 4410 is your address previously! Now if I could figure out the 56 and the 50. I am thinking that it could be your address now! 5650 must be your address now. Unless it is 56 dreams that you have and 50 dreams that have already come true!

Beautifulclothing - March 11, 2010 - 10:33 am

I have been pondering all morning long Denise…….On April 4th 2010 you will have 56 cookie tank tops ready to be sold and 50 Raven skirts. Lol

BeccaBoo - March 11, 2010 - 10:30 am

The first is your new house #. 56 is the # of Coke’s you will need before HB2 comes out, and 50 is the # of kisses you gave your kids today! ;0)

Laura - March 11, 2010 - 10:24 am

Hmmmm… I think 4410 is the number of McDonalds Diet Cokes you drank last year, 56 is the number of Wizards of Waverly Place episodes you have watched, and 50 is the number of fingernail clippings you have. 🙂

mimi - March 11, 2010 - 9:35 am

April 10, 2010, 1 year in your new building, 56, and 50, number of pieces in Hammond Bay, and what’s still left, tempting me. I was born in 1956, wish I was 50??? Love these contests.

Allie - March 11, 2010 - 9:18 am

Is 4410 the amount of minutes we have to wait for HB2 to launch?

Allie - March 11, 2010 - 9:17 am

It’s my favorite little model, Haley! Just love her 🙂

mama2a~n~i - March 11, 2010 - 7:59 am

So I think the 56 is the # of boxes that came in this week with the back ordered stuff in them from peru… 50 boxes of BO items that went out yesterday… 4410? the # of emails you have in your inbox since you started the move and HB was launched. Love HB and looking forward to seeing more from HB2/HB3.

Beautifulclothing - March 11, 2010 - 7:50 am

4410 and 5650 could be the next numbers that you are going to announce to be the winners!!

Joy - March 11, 2010 - 7:27 am

My guess is that 4410 was your room number at Hammond Bay. The 56 and 50 are the number of kids and adults? Just a shot in the dark:)

Beautifulclothing - March 11, 2010 - 7:23 am

OK so I am thinking that 4410 is either your house number or the date of April, 4th 2010. The number 56 is how many boxes that you have in your WONDERFUL garage to unpack still and 50 is the number of boxes that you have left inside the house or the other way around. If 4410 is the date of April, 4th 2010 then I think that is your goal day to be done with all of the packing. After that you can spend all of your time to enjoy your wonderful beautiful house and spend some time relaxing and enjoying your time in your new chair.

Deb - March 11, 2010 - 6:27 am

Will HB2 be uploaded soon? I received an email it would be on the website on the 10th. Don’t want to waste time checking throughout the day today if it will not be up for another few days.

kristin m. - March 11, 2010 - 5:32 am

i guess i need to check back more often to be the first one in on a guess….i would have to say (as a LOT of others have guessed) that they are the address numbers of the old and new houses. congrats on the new home!

Head over Heels for Hammond Bay - March 11, 2010 - 5:08 am

Are they the keytags of the only 3 people that had orders under $300.00???!!!! That would have made my husband happy!

christine - March 11, 2010 - 4:31 am

We’ll have to see some pictures soon! Not even going to guess because I think it was answered:)

My Little Carolina Girl - March 11, 2010 - 4:03 am

I haven’t read all the post so I don’t know if someone has already said this.. “4 4 10” represents April 4, 2010 a special day for you and it takes 56 steps to get to your house from the end of the driveway and another 50 to get to your bedroom. Congrats on the house.

Katie M. - March 11, 2010 - 2:15 am

I’ll go with 4410 miles it would take to drive round trip from you to me, 56 days till your birthday and 50 till art fair
Isnt it exciting to be almost all done- I love getting things put away and having it look great (until the kids come in and wreck it anyhow LOL)

Holly's Mama - March 11, 2010 - 2:15 am

Hi Annette! 🙂

Holly's Mama - March 11, 2010 - 2:13 am

I was so busy today and didn’t have time to look at the blog until now. My guess is the numbers have to do with your new and old address but not sure which numbers are the old address and which are the new ones. I guess some other people already guessed my answer though. 🙁 Oh, well. I get to go on a week long cruise to Mexico in about one week. That will make up for not winning on the blog. Of course Holly will be wearing some MJ on the cruise! Goodnight Denise. I so need to go to bed!

Annette M - March 11, 2010 - 12:20 am

Old Milly! Always a dollar short and day late. 4410 your old house number and 5650 is the new house number.

lookingforsunshine - March 10, 2010 - 11:13 pm

4410 new house number, 56 number of coke bottles found, 50 number of weeks you waited to get the house??

Congratulations! So exciting . . .well all except the fingernail part, kind of scary but love you all the more!

saoirse's mom - March 10, 2010 - 9:51 pm

4410 is your new house number. and 5650 is your old house number. and a big congrats on the house!

Dawn - March 10, 2010 - 9:45 pm

kaitlyn - March 10, 2010 - 9:39 pm

Congrats on the new house! As for the numbers…your old and new addresses??

Jennifer M - March 10, 2010 - 9:30 pm

JJARMOM - March 10, 2010 - 9:26 pm

4410- Room keys to give out

vanessa diel - March 10, 2010 - 9:19 pm

What an amazing phrase from a 6yo. It has so much meaning to it. So much said in just a few words. I think I will take that advice.

God Bless!

Knot*Addicted - March 10, 2010 - 9:12 pm

recent and/or soon-to-be birthday ages of family/friends .. 44,10,50,56

Joann E - March 10, 2010 - 9:09 pm

4410- New House Number
50- Number of shoes that you gave away
56- Number of outfits that you sent out from all the nominations

Please let this be right 🙂

a lovell - March 10, 2010 - 9:09 pm

Well, I really think that they are house numbers 4410 old house and 5650 new house…or vice-versa. But since that has already been guessed I will say something that I hope is actually not the case….4410 old fingernails (I’m sorry, but that is a little gross that this could in fact be a possibilty), 56 prized trolls, and 50 old barbie dolls or somthing like that.

I don’t know, like I’ve said before, I really suck at this stuff. Why can’t you ever put easy questions on here for the less-insightfull like myself :o)?

*Twinkle*Toes* - March 10, 2010 - 9:09 pm

the 4410 is your Address #. 56 pieces in Hammond bay 1 and 50 in Hammond bay 2 and 3…..?

Erin (Ava, Lily & Claire's mom) - March 10, 2010 - 9:06 pm

First thing that popped into my mind for 4410 was “the last four digits of your social security number,” but that would be silly. Ha! So, I am going to guess that is the 4410 is the number of minutes since you last posted on your blog, 56 is the number of diet cokes you had to consume to unpack all of those boxes and 50 is the number of things that are in Hammond Bay’s second collection (okay, wishful thinking…)

Shelley - March 10, 2010 - 9:03 pm

I think it’s your new and old house numbers!

JackieF - March 10, 2010 - 8:53 pm

Congrats on finally finding a place for your beloved painting!

Kendall Lilly's Mama - March 10, 2010 - 8:48 pm

4410 – # of Hammond Bay keys given out to the “Addicts,”
56 – # of pieces in the Hammond Bay collection, and
50 – # of prized Troll dolls in your collection:)

Kari D - March 10, 2010 - 8:46 pm

4410- address of the new house, 50 and 56 are the ages of the previous owners

Mitra - March 10, 2010 - 8:43 pm

Or how about.. 4410 is the old digs and 5056 or 5650 is the new digs? thats a good one! I can see you being sneaky like that!

tree*head - March 10, 2010 - 8:42 pm

Out of the mouth of babes – its amazing how much wisdom littles possess without even knowing it!

I am guessing new house number and old house number(s)?

Mitra - March 10, 2010 - 8:41 pm

4410 a house number you lived at on pembroke lane… 50 and 6 houses up, making it 56 is where you’re living now…and where I am GUESSING you have 2 mortages because I am not thinking you’ve sold your old house yet or you would be OVER THE MOON excited for yourself!

dot+3 - March 10, 2010 - 8:39 pm

Aaaah, the wisdom of a 6-year-old… My guess–your new house number, the total number of boxes moved, and the number of boxes you have unpacked respectively

mom2four - March 10, 2010 - 8:38 pm

Hmmm…4410 might be your OLD house number and 56 and 50 (5650)might be your NEW house number (because the numbers don’t go that high on the key tags).

I think 4410 was listed first because of how much the old house also means to you with all of the memories you have made there. 🙂

Sara - March 10, 2010 - 8:35 pm

Your new house address and favorite numbers

*TKJT* - March 10, 2010 - 8:35 pm

oh shoot those were already guessed how about…
4410 house number, 56 boxes unpacked, 50 boxes remain lol

4410 house number, 56 things on your to do list and 50 seconds you had to yourself lol

Mary R. - March 10, 2010 - 8:32 pm

Your new house addy and your parents’ ages? Just a guess, obviously! LOL
Sounds like you have a very smart little neighbor. :o)

Summer - March 10, 2010 - 8:27 pm

Let’s see, your new house number, the amount of coke bottles you collected, and the number of boxes you have to unpack

*TKJT* - March 10, 2010 - 8:27 pm

Your new house number and your past house number

Laura Ann - March 10, 2010 - 8:25 pm

Hmmmm…I think they represent room key numbers from the Hammond Bay Collection. I also think they represent one happy girl whose dream of living in the perfect house has finally come true for the perfect family with the perfect boys and the perfect cat.

Sweetp6373 - March 10, 2010 - 8:21 pm

your current and past house numbers.

Melody in Arizona - March 10, 2010 - 8:16 pm

4410 is your new address

56 is the number of boxes/packages you have unpacked

50 is the number of things you have on a list in your mind that need to be done!

Wendy - March 10, 2010 - 8:16 pm

How about where you live and have lived and worked.

Tanya - March 10, 2010 - 8:14 pm

4410-the number of total orders the first day of Hammond Bay 2.
56-the number of keys given out (Boo.)
50-the minutes it took to sell out the Raven skirt.

Merri Thomas - March 10, 2010 - 8:14 pm

Oh yes and congrats on your new house…it sounds amazing!

Mississippi Gal - March 10, 2010 - 8:14 pm

Can’t wait to see pic of the house and of Sam. My cat’s name is Sammie, he is the most awesome cat ever. Everyday when I walk out in my garage I either step on a dead mole, dead rat or dead bird! He had a baby snake in his mouth yesterday!

I think the numbers represent the amount you are selling your old house for??? Or an old combination lock code……

Merri Thomas - March 10, 2010 - 8:13 pm

Your new house number, a lucky number, and how many pieces of clothing you sold at your first art fair 🙂

Ella's Mom - March 10, 2010 - 8:12 pm

Well, I might be the first one in, but I’m not sure I’m takin’ the cake! Congrats on your new digs and much good luck! I’m thinking those are house numbers…old house number, new house number and….sheesh…old apartment number?! Ha! Worth a try 🙂

Aurora Arceo - March 10, 2010 - 8:11 pm
