We Are In Our Home!!!!

Things have been so busy here, but in a very GREAT way! We moved in on August 1st so everyday has been unpacking, gathering stuff from the grain bin, the quansit, the basement where we have been residing for over two years, and just going through boxes. I pulled out our toaster that for some strange reason was packed with Brad's shoes and you know what? Nobody really recognized it. It was so weird!

We are slowly getting settled although we have so much still to do. Clark is here for 10 days, Laurel is finishing up her summer theater this week and so we are just taking time off from the house and enjoying life. Here are a few pictures of our first week in the house. Can you tell we have missed having our very own kitchen with our very own stuff?


Whenever a friend has a birthday a few of them get together and make a cake for them. This time it is Scott's. He is the one standing up. Tate is leaning over and Avery is standing next to Michelle.



Then a few days ago it was Adrianne's birthday so Laurel and Michelle whipped up an asian meal, complete with a noodle dish and sushi. Laurel can roll a mean sushi tighter than anyone I know.

I will try and be better about posting because I don't want to lose my faithful blog followers.

That is not a home. It'a a hotel! No wonder it took so long to build. It's awesome. I'm looking to seeing more photos of it on future blogs. Congratulations on finally moving in!

Your faithful are still following you but it seems Brad is missing from the pack so eat your heart out, we get him around our table!!! We just LOVE that boy.

The house looks gorgeous and y'all look so happy to be IN!!!!

Looks like we both moved in on the same day. We just put up our blog pics too so check it out when you can.

That Asian meal looks JUST about as good as your house!! I can't wait to enjoy that new house every single weekend. Okay, maybe not EVERY single weekend. lol

I'm so relieved to see that someone other than myself is busy with things besides blogging this past month!

Its very comforting to come back and check out your kids faces. Laurel, Michelle and Neal always have a 'wow' story for me!
