Two cheese heads signing the document to put the house into our names!

The final look of our home. The back still needs top soil and sod, but hopefully I can get that put in soon!

We finally own our very own house! We signed our final loan documents today! We also did a final walk through today to check for anything out of order. Everything looks great, the superintendent hates Haley but thats ok! We are excited to move in although it will be delayed a bit until Haley and the kids get back from Yellowstone. While they are gone I will be puting in the correct appliances, painting (maybe), and installing ceiling fans in seven different rooms! It sounds like it would suck but I am excited to finally do something nice for my own house.

I got my hair cut about a week and a half ago. I decided it was time for a change and maybe it would help Bella from not pulling it as much as she does. I'm still getting used to it but it's starting to grow on me.

Strawberries and Jam

We had such a busy day today we went to a U-Pick Farm down in Fife to pick strawberries. We had a lot of fun. Kaleb and Riley loved picking them and Bella just wanted to eat them. After we were done Aime and I made freezer jam with our strawberries. Yummy!

Water Park

We had so much fun yesterday. Aime invited us to go to the water park down in Auburn. Riley had fun getting wet but Bella didn't like it I think the water was to cold for her. I love it when we have play group like this because it keeps me and my kids from going CRAZY doing nothing at home. Thanks for inviting me Aime.

4TH OF JULY!!!!!!!

On the fourth we went and played football up at the school with some of our family and it was loads of fun but I'm still sooo soar from it. Later that night we went up to my grandmas house for a pot luck and fireworks (tradition). We love going up there and seeing family that we haven't seen in a long time and catching up on what's new in their lives.

Riley got a brand new tea set at the DI yesterday never been used. She really wanted to have a tea party so my sister was over and we had one she gave everyone parts too. She was Bell, my sister Aimie was Mrs. Potts, Kaleb was Chip, and I was guess who? yeah that's right the Beast. It was a lot of fun and Riley makes great tea.


Aime and I took our kids to the commons the other day to play on the play toys they have there and they had a lot of fun. Mostly they just ran around it and Kaleb and Ashton wrestled a lot. After that we headed over to the DI to see what fun stuff they had and the kids went crazy when they saw the toy section. All in all we had a lot of fun thanks Aime for hanging out.

What I have to pay for it?

Kids Bathroom

Kitchen finally put together with the island and the wood installed.

The house is looking more complete than last time. I am trimming the house on Thursday and I am excited. They said our estimated closing date is the 22July08. Whether that stays true is yet to be seen. There is always a chance that it could be changed, such as me complaining about the trim/mill work color. Yes the one I so homosexualy ranted on about last week. It has been bothering me ever since. The plumbing is going to look sweet! The outside still needs the stone and yard but this is a better picture than the last one. I will put some pictures of the plumbing on here this weekend. I am at the point where the payment starts to hit you a little, and it is not good! Hopefully we can adjust fast!
