Really going to do this!!

OK. So I have had this blog since September '07 and never actually posted! I am really going to do this now! I frequent other blogs and love getting updates on dear friends so I want to share our life, too.

We are really busy right now! We are building a new house! Grant is doing the contracting himself, so right now my husband is also my builder! It is working out well, and we are enjoying the process. We have had some ups and downs, but overall it has been a good experience so far. We had a nasty, mean, sorry person break in and cut some wire. Having to buy wire to replace it was bad, but the worse part was Grant had worked so hard on wiring the house. He really took it personally. They got it redone, but we are now paranoid! The sheetrock finishing should be done next week, and then we will start the trim work. Our cabinets are being built and should be ready in about 4 weeks. We are getting quotes on painting and the outside trim siding is starting today. So much to keep up with!

Addison is growing and is so much fun right now! She loves going to the lot and getting very dirty! We go out there so much and run errands for the house constantly! This morning I decided for us to do something fun before we ever left the house. We decorated a pumpkin! I had read this idea in a magazine and decided to try it. We cut out body parts from a magazine and glued them to the pumpkin. We had picked up leaves yesterday at the park and used those for hair. It was fun and she had a ball making it!

Hooray! I'm so glad you've joined the blogging world. Good luck with the house. Addison is so precious. We need to get together for a playdate soon.

Addison looks like such a big girl sitting there! I'm proud of the little "craft" you did! The house is coming along and looks great. I'll see you soon. Love you guys.
