Happy 4th!

Ok, actually 6th--LOL! We had a fun 4th. My mom's neighborhood had a block party, and we got to visit and eat while the kids all played with water balloons and squirt guns. Then we lit tons of fireworks. Austin got totally into it this year. Brendan sat in Grandma's lap with his hands over his ears the whole time. I'll try to upload some pics this week.

We put an offer on a house this weekend. We'll know by tomorrow night if they accept the offer or not. It's a great house--4 bedrooms plus a den and a loft. Nice big backyard for the boys. We're really hoping we get it. As for the job, I'm meeting with some of the other teachers this week and if all goes well, I should sign a contract by the end of the week. Lots of things to look forward to this week.

We took the boys to see WALL-E today. It was a cute movie. I still like Cars and Finding Nemo better, but Austin LOVED it! Poor Brendy fell asleep. Crazy kid. Uncle Taylor, his girlfriend and Grandma and Papa came along too.

Would you believe I haven't touched my scrapbook stuff in over two weeks. I'm just not motivated and every time I do, I realize what I forgot to pack with me. I do have a CTMH order coming soon though, so maybe it will be the kick in the rear I need to start creating again. I just seem to be falling behind on everything, including my blog. Once everything gets settled maybe that will change.

Anyway, just wanted to check in. Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday weekend.
