can you believe it?

I thought it was appropriate to update our blog on the first snow of the season.  Can you believe it?!  :)

 Jonah was all suited up to play in the snow, but got upset when the caked on dirt from his boots made the snow muddy.  Poor kid was heart broken and could not be convinced otherwise.  Oh Jonah...

house update

WOW three months since a post? We now have paint on the walls, a toilet, most of the doors stained, tile in the guest bath, and Mom and Dad are working on our cabinets. We were even able to move some of our tubs from our old house into the basement! (Jayda had fun finding a box of old forget how much STUFF you have when it's mostly packed away) Here are a few of my favorite things...

The orange walls in the mud room...

Silas's chubby cheeks:)

Bricks on the fireplace- how about those future built-ins and kitchen cabinets?!

A finished door...yes I've already bought curtains. lol.

The octagon tiles in the guest bath...
We're hoping to be able to move in by March 1st. !!! Think we can do it?

Jayda, Ashley, & Belle

My big girl Jayda turned 4 on October 31st. What a good girl she smart & caring. Her favorite things right now are coloring with Macy, anything to do with princesses (especially Ariel & Belle), dancing & singing, dressing herself (this happens more than once a day), provoking Jonah:), and of course playing with our new pets!

Belle is our newest addition at the trees. She is a 6 month old golden retreiver & is an outside dog. She is so sweet & pretty too. I couldn't ask for a nicer dog. We love her!

Here is Jayda's kitty which she named Ashley. She is very girly- gentle & fluffy.

Here is Jonah with mama kitty, named "mama." He's been chasing the kitties & carrying them around all morning. We also have two other kitties- Jonah's is the all black boy kitty which he named "pink" :) Silas has the smallest one & her name is Cali.

In other news, Silas recently had his 4 month old checkup and weighs over 18 pounds!

Videos For Family Far Away

Here is your warning, this video is a little boring. It was such a beautiful morning and I finally had the camera with me. I didn't put any thought in to this. But if you have not seen the house and live far away, then at least you can see what we have been up to. More to come....

we have walls!

A lot can happen in six days...and with the help of my mom, dad, Kyle, Lee, Chad, Tim, & Beth, we went from a foundation with nothing on it, to having almost every wall up on the main floor. AMAZING! Thank you Mom, Dad and Kyle for being there sun-up to sun-down.

the three windows on the lower half are the kids' rooms.

...can't wait to call this place home!

cute pics

It is so hard to get a picture of Jonah these days! He keeps hitting the camera and saying "NO!" when I try to take a picture of him...He is definately a 2 yr old!

Not sure why this one keeps downloading sideways...

Silas is 7 weeks old tomorrow!
