The Many Sad Faces of Connor

This is so sad. I am telling you all about it. He gets upset over the smallest things and has complete meltdowns. It's a good thing he's cute.

Christmas 2010

We had a really great Christmas. We went to Kirk's mom's house. It was fun. I felt bad for his siblings that were there, because they didn't have any presents to open. So they watched my kids open present after present. Calista had so much fun this year. It was the first year that she got really excited about Christmas and she even said she heard Santa and his reindeer on the roof.

Our home

Here is the last post of the house before we move in. It has the red shutters and red door and I love it. I am really excited. I found out today that we will be closing on the home on January 13 and we can move in that day. It will be a very busy day.

I love carpet. We had hard wood all throughout our other house, so to have carpet is so nice and squishy and warm.

What week are we one?

Here is an update on the house MOM!! This post is for you, cause you keep bugging me about it. :-) The house is looking really good. The shudders aren't on yet and I don't have the front door on yet and they need to paint that white post black. I cannot believe how much it has changed though in the last few weeks. We walked in last week and all of a sudden we had kitchen cabinets and counter tops. It was pretty AWESOME!!! I love the granite we chose. I do wish we could of had a bigger kitchen, but it is waaaaay bigger then the one we had at our old house, so I am very happy about that.

Don't worry the radio and pepsi is not ours. LOL!!! This is the kids' sink in their bathroom.

The beautiful chandelier in the dining area.

This is my bathroom and "YES!!!" it has two sinks. Saweeeeet!!!! I love it!

Here is a close up on the granite. Its gorgeous!

Here are my cabinets and yes I did the two toned cabinets on purpose. It looks pretty cool to me.

More cabinets.

Wider shot of the kitchen. It looks soooooo cool!!!
As you can tell I am very anxious to get into our new home. It is just beautiful. Thank you to my Mom for letting us crash at her house and basically take over. It has been really nice to have a comfortable place that we can go home to after work. Mom you are the best and I love you very much. I hope you are having a good time in Florida with Cheree.

I will probably have an open house in April or May, because that is when I should have a driveway. It is too cold to poor a driveway right now, so we will be living without one for a couple of months.

Let's Dance!

Calista did a fantastic job on her first dance recital.
It was lots of fun and we laughed a lot.

This first picture was the rehearsal so she still had curlers in her hair.
She is ready to perform!

Very proud mama!!

Blackmail photos

I love these and I can't wait until he brings home his first girlfriends and I can show them these photos. HHaaaaaaheeeeee!! I am so evil!!!!


Calista and Connor

Connor all ready for church.
Calista posing like a model for me in her pretty dress.

Her hair looked very pretty that day and I had to take a picture. She sits still really good for me.

Connor wearing Calista's hat I made to match her coat.

Calista wearing the cute head band I made. I love it!! She gives the best cheesy smiles.

The kids are loving the snow a lot more than I am. We did have fun on Thanksgiving. We went hooky bobbin on the back of Paul's four wheelers and we also played on a little snow hill with the sleds in the cul-de-sac. It was awesome!!!

New home week 6

It just amazes me what they can get accomplished in a week. We have the shingles on, they wrapped the house. They have all the plumbing and electrical done and the windows are in (but not in that first picture, because they put them in later that day). It is just so way cool!!
