New Camera...

Today I am sitting and looking out the window for Mr.UPS to bring me my new camera! I have been without since before Colton was born and it really upsets me that I do not have near as many pics of him as a baby that I do of Cooper. So today when I get my new one Colton doesn't know it yet but he will have a photo shoot this afternoon! :) He started rolling over on Easter Sunday and that was really neat. Cooper thinks its funny, not sure why, but he is actually moving now so Cooper loves to watch! I will post some pics on here as soon as I get a chance!

We're In

We are finally in our new house. After a little bit of drama we closed on Friday the 21st and moved in that night. We are finally settled on the inside with all the furniture and things like that but the garage is still packed full with boxes that we have the great joy of going through and putting stuff where it belongs. That is not fun at all to me! I would rather stay inside and pretend that the garage is clean!!! :) Cooper loves his playroom and loves to run like crazy in the backyard with Griz. Colton really has no clue that we even moved so that is good! He is growing so fast and started rolling over on Easter Sunday so that was neat! Our lives have calmed down quite a bit moving out here which has been very nice and we love just spending time together! We have many projects still to do, like tear down all the wallpaper, but I am really in no hurry. We will get to it when we can. Thats our lives in a nutshell at the moment!

Spring - My Favorite Time of Year

I love the spring! My birthday happens to be the 1st offical day of spring and I love that!! I love when we can open the windows and play outside to the warm day and the cool evenings! I cannot wait for Spring to get here this year because we will be living in our new house. I cannot wait to see how our lives calm down a bit as we get settled outside of the busy city that we have been living in all our lives. We are so blessed to be where we are right now in our lives. Our boys have blessed us more than we ever dreamed and I honestly don't know what we did without them in our family. I am more in love with my husband than I ever have been and I am so thankful that I get to spend the rest of my days with him taking care of me! He is the perfect example of a provider to our children. I pray that my boys will have as good as a work ethic as their father. As for me, I am striving daily to be a better wife and mom to my family. I think the role that I have in this family is very important and I want to provide a loving and fun atmosphere in my home. Needless to say I CANNOT WAIT TILL MARCH 21ST, the day we close on our house!!!

House Hunting

Friday we went looking for a house in Brighton, TN. We had about 7 houses to look at including the one that we had seen the Friday before that we really liked. As we looked at all of them we just did not fine one that would meet all of our needs except the last one. This was the 2nd time we had gone to look at this one and we fell in love with it! It's a 4 bedroom with a huge backyard for the boys! It is a place that we hope to live in for a very long time. So...we went back to the Realtor's office and wrote up an offer on the house on Friday afternoon. The people that are selling the house have moved to Germany so he told us it could take a while to get a response from them. Saturday afternoon we got a phone call from Dan Craddock, our Realtor, and they ACCEPTED OUR OFFER!!!!!!!!!!! So if everything goes as planned we will close March 21, Good Friday, so it will be extra good this year!!! We are so excited to move our family out to the country and get a fresh start. I will post some pics of the house once we move in!
