Home Sweet Home

Last week we moved into our new house! Let me just say, life is great. James just hooked the computer up so I decided to post a little update. It's amazing, we didn't have internet for about 2 weeks and I didn't really miss it much:)

We have been painting non stop and have managed to complete the kitchen, living room, dining room, and Koby's room. We still have halls, stairs, Linc's room, our room, and 3 bathrooms to go...UG! The only time we can peacefully paint is after the kids are in bed. This means James and I have been painting well into the early hours of the morning and living off about 3-4 hours of sleep at night. Not healthy, I know! And did I mention our yard needs some serious LOVE?! That is a project we will start next week.

We love where we live. The neighborhood is nice and cheery and there are little kids everywhere. The other day Koby and I were weeding and 2 kids came over and helped. Koby is in heaven with all his new "friends."  Anyone who passes by gets a, "You wanna come to Koby's house?"

These two have really bonded lately

If anyone knows Koby, they know he would NEVER fall asleep eating. This is what moving does to us. We are so over it...


Lincoln is growing even bigger and is a lot more interactive now. He loves to smile when you make eye contact with him. He also loves toys and tries to grab them all the time...



We've been so blessed :)
