Our new house and other news

Our house officially closes on August 22nd, so we're down to a few weeks now--woohoo! Loving it! I have no idea what we're going to do with that backyard--it's huge!! Ic an't wait to get all moved in and settled. More importantly, get my scrap room set up so I can start creating again--LOL We were over there last night and took a walk in our new neighborhood. Nice and peaceful. Here's a couple pics

I have been online looking at the new CTMH catty and boy am I going to be broke!! I can't wait to get settled and start having classes and crops again so I can afford all the new goodies :)

In other news the boys and I have been sick all week. Started with colds and pink eye for the boys--yuck! I have a bad cold that has settled in my throat and ears (as it always does for me). Now I get to take Austin BACK to the dr. today because his eye is getting worse instead of better. I swear it's been one thing after another lately. Better now than once school starts though!

On a happier note, here are a few pics from the airshow last weekend. It was so hot--about 109 on the tarmac, but very neat getting to see the Blue Angels!! It is so amaizing what they can do in the air--I was in awe. My pics of them are far away,s o I didn't load them. Poor Brendan had his ears covered the whole time.

Look at Austin with both teeth missing! Hee hee.
Brendan looks like he just finished a 5K, he is so pink.
Glad you guys got the house. Too bad we can't be there to help you move in too.
Miss you,

That is exciting about your house. That is going to be really nice. And congrats on the job too.

Sorry to hear that you guys are all sick. But I totally feel your pain. All three of my kids had pink eye, then my husband. It was horrible and took forever to get rid of. I wish you luck.

Thanks for the update Nic, great house and look at that blank canvas of a backyard - I know you will have fun with that.

Take care and rest up.

Congratulations on the home. It is beautiful. The boys are going to have a great time in that "big" backyard. Maybe you could turn it into a soccer field. Just kidding.

Love the new house. I know y'all have to be more than ready to get moved in.

The new house is gorgeous. But the backyard is long and narrow...kind of a weird shape to work with!

Can't wait until you are settled in and posting artwork again.


Kari said...

Yeah! Congrats on the house... In no time you will be settled and unpacked... and creating again.
