Costume Party

We just had to try these one while we were packing up our costumes.

We're off to the lake for a week! Can't wait for the break!

Pools in heaven?

Jackson says the cutest stuff sometimes.

We were at the pool today having one of our "talks" during a break.
J: "I wish Honeybabe (our deceased dog) could be at the pool with us because she would just love it."
Me: "Oh I'm sure she's swimming away up there."
J: "But Heavenly Father doesn't have any pools in heaven."
ME: "I'm sure he does."
J: "I think I need to ask him." (J continues on folding his arms, then whispering to me- fold your arms, mom!)
J: "Dear Heavenly Father, Do you have any pools in heaven? And could you send Honeybabe and Joy (grandparents' deceased dog) down to play with us? In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

I have to admit I had the chuckles. I secretly wanted to get him a dog too. Shhhhhhh.

It's official

After 5 attempts to buy a house and 2 failed contracts, we decided to build! We found the perfect extra-large lot on a culdesac and everything just felt right!

Here's what it will look like, except it will be all siding instead of brick.

Unfortunately we have to move out of our townhome and into a ghetto apartment for a few months. But it will be worth it. We are so excited!

Happy Fourth Part 2

S'more please!

Statue of liberty pose in the I heart NY shirt. A must!
Kirtis lit up a great show for us in the driveway, but it just wasn't as entertaining as Jackson's sparkler show!

A Low-key Fourth of July Part 1

We are in the midst of moving, so we stayed close to home and spent most the weekend organizing and packing, then went to gram and gramps for dinner and some fireworks.

Dressed up and ready for some fun. :)

Avery was in heaven. She found THREE binkies and was taking turns sticking each one in her mouth. Talk about obsessed! I had to laugh!

The munchkins love cornamacob!
