Top 10

Okay so we finally got into our house this weekend! So exciting!!! And I was just thinking about all the things that I love about our new house. So here they are in no particular order.
1- The new paint and new carpet smell
2- Nice big pantry
3- Nice new carpet that I can run my fingers and toes through
4- A two car garage
5- Being able to finally get off my side of the bed! (Imagine me being 8 months pregnant and rolling over Weston every time I had to pee. That was a sight to see!)
6- Houses for neighbors instead of a parking lot
7- A place for all my scrapbook supplies
8- A living room and a family room. Now our guests won't trip over toys when they come to the front door!
9- A walk in closet
10- Being able to decorate our new house

So now that I have thought about everything I love about our new house I am kind of sad about leaving our old place. Even though it was an old rental that always smelled bad, (no matter what we did to try and fix that), it was the perfect house for us as newlyweds. We had great memories that we will always remember. The thing that I am going to miss most about living there is the amazing neighbors that were across the street. They were the best neighbors that we will ever have and we are going to definitely miss them. Especially Makenna. Even though they were family they are our best friends. So we are definitely going to miss Shane, Cali and Shali. All the shared dinners, walks to the park and midnight phone calls for help. Thanks for being the greatest neighbors ever!

I was tagged by Ashley because I love chocolate and cheescake! Okay, here are the rules: Go to your pictures, go to your 6th folder, pull up your 6th picture and post it! Here is what I found:

This is Makenna after one of her baths. Isn't she so cute!
Okay now I tag anyone who likes to scrapbook. (or make cards)!

I just can't believe that it was snowing before Halloween. Crazy weather! Well when we woke up last Sunday to snow I had to get Makenna dressed up in her cute snowsuit so we could go play before church. I knew that it would melt before we could get home. So here are some cute pictures of her. I need to get her snow gloves and boots for christmas. She didn't like her little knit ones that got wet.

State Fair

Driving the tractor!

Okay so I know this was a month ago, I am just being really slow putting the pictures up. But better late then never! So we went to the state fair and it was so much fun. Makenna loved the animals and the big slide. She road it three times! She also got to ride a little tractor that was so cute. It was a fun night out as a family so here are a few pics.

Painting, painting and more painting. So can you guess what I've been doing lately? Well that and also the washing of the walls before hand, tearing down ugly wall paper and taping. Who knew this was going to be such a project? (Well, besides everyone else in the world that has done). Although this is lots to do I am having so much fun doing it. I guess it's just doesn't seem so bad because you want to work hard because you actually own the place. And you can be proud of all the work you did on it. So we are keeping extremely busy right now but totally enjoying it. If everything goes well we will try and move in, in two weeks!!! I can't wait! I am so excited to just sleep our first night there. Thanks also to everyone that has been helping us with the house and with babysitting. We couldn't do it with out you!
