As promised, here are updated house pictures. The only thing new thing is the paint color and I put up a few things on the wall. But if you know me at all, you know that things around here are constantly changing...But I love the paint color more than I thought I would.
The front room where the kids are cold cause we left windows open last night and where they're watching "Christmas with the Kranks" (I know, it's a funny choice of movie):
And now I present to you our laundry room. It needs a lot of work. One day it'll be a bathroom. But before it gets to that, I'm going to paint it and maybe even put some curtains up. But lets not talk about curtains cause every window in this house needs curtains before winter and I'm starting to get antsy for them. Remember that dryer Mom? It's going on how many years now? 18? It works perfectly still:
The view from the front of the house and the potato farm and the BYU-I agricultural center. All the way to the left of the picture are some trees and those trees are hiding the mountain where we hike. It's not really a mountain, it's a volcano that erupted sometime in the last million years and left behind some really pretty basaltic rock. Anyway, we love hiking there:
Next spring we're going to start fencing and getting it all ready for the next 60 years.
I love it here.
This is more home than any other place I've ever lived and you know how much I love home!
The kids love to be outside (hallelujah). It took us awhile to get to loving it but they have great friends around and lots to do.
Stephen likes to catch grasshoppers and dragon fly's with his friends and make rockets and use their slingshots.
The girls go to the neighbors and jump on their trampoline and generally have a good time.
The grass needs to be mowed again but that's okay because the longer it is, the softer it is on our bare feet.
We wish you were here and hopefully we'll get to see you soon!
I love you!
And would it surprise you to know that I enjoyed a piece of apple crisp and a Diet Dr. Pepper while writing this out? I love breakfast...
(Candice...we'll see you in a few weeks! We CANNOT wait!!!!!!)
