chad and i are both so excited that we finally found a house that we LOVE and one that we will be so proud to call our home!!! we will love it even MORE when we move into it. after two offers on other houses that fell through, we found that our third time really was a charm.

We closed on the sale of our home yesterday (monday, the 28th) and will close on the purchase of this house TOMORROW!!! OMG!!! SOOOOO STINKIN HAPPY!!! Thursday (new years eve) mimi and poppi will be traveling from texarkana with their trailer to help us move. we are also renting a 24' u-haul so we can just get everything in one go. What a way to bring in the new year, huh??? :)


Master Bath - probably chad's side

oh, i cannot WAIT to fill this thing up with bubbles...i picture me as julia roberts in Pretty Woman! ha!

my side of the vanity

the backyard...it's a lot bigger than it looks in the picture...we are so excited that we now have a FLAT backyard that graham can run around and play in all day long...can't wait to get him a swingset!!

I love this...do they call this a halltree or something like that??? perfect for my purse and graham's backpack/diaper bags...usually it all ends up on the counter or dining room table

our front door. i just absolutely LOVE IT!!

Graham with his Aunt Shana

This is what he does when you ask him to "show us your belly!!"

he points these little fingers when he is trying to figure out what he wants to get into next.
I can't believe how much this lil stinker has grown up.


Daddy is still very much a kid himself. ha!

Here is our left handed batter!

Graham and his Nana (Chad's mom)

We tried to do family pictures and this is the best one that we got! ha! I love it!!! It really shows the true colors of us as a family.
