Random Pics of the week

Here are a few glimpses of life this week.

This treasure was Ian's gift at a white elephant exchange. Still in the original box and looking brand new, it's a flashlight and vacuum cleaner combo! I can't imagine how I've lived this long without one. :P

A couple of kiddos in front of our tree...

A cutie pie who will be FOUR months old in two days.

Time is passing too quickly.

And a little princess who learned that her new chapstick was purple instead of clear...I think she'll use a mirror next time. :)

Between moving and Christmas coming up, I feel exhausted. Blogging about anything of interest would take brain power I just don't seem to have right now. Hopefully things will return to a normal pace soon.

House Pictures

We took a couple of things over to the new house yesterday so I was able to snap a few photos!

This is a front view...

This one is from the side looking into the backyard...

This is from the back yard looking at the back of the house...

There is a gas fireplace in the family room (and a silly boy!)

oops, I mean TWO silly boys ;)

This is a view of the living room (and more silly children...)

I think they are happy and like the new house! :)

I'll be taking pictures as we move in so check back for more!
