It's finally ours....sorta...

Yesterday we finally signed papers for the new house! It officially ours....in about 30 years..hahaha! We are so excited to get started on all our little projects we have planned and get settled into "our home". The kids can't wait to be in their new rooms and play in their big yard. I haven't taken very many new pictures...but as the next week or so progresses with our big move I'm sure I'll be posting many more for those of you who are too far away to visit right now.

For the last couple of years it has felt like this day was never going to come. Thanks to a patient realtor(thanks Brian) and lots of prayer, we finally made it.

We are SO thankful for such an amazing and wonderful God that He is able to provide this home for us!

John and I accomplishing the task of signing ALL those papers...ugh!

On a different note...here are some more things we did this last week:

new cut and color...yay! (thanks mom)

Adventures with corn on the cob.....very messy.

Alison is going fishing??? well at least she ready to! And what's with that face??!

so that's how you do it...

In the midst of all the packing over the last couple of weeks...I got a little more help than I bargained for, on more than one occasion. At one point, the kids got a hold of some Breathe-Right strips...which they thought were Band-Aids at first. Then, when I explained that they are for your nose, to help you breathe better...they gave me a lesson on how to apply them....."No, no Mom, you do it like this..", Jeremiah says....

So, do you think it really works if you hang them out of your mouth?.....LOL

fun times...

The kids and I went to the Children's Museum yesterday with our friends. They had so much fun! Jeremiah loved the Fire Department Exhibit and the little chinese restaurant. They did great!
