Feeling like home now :)

Our house is finally starting to feel like a home now. Granite was installed on Monday and dishwasher and kitchen sink were hooked up yesterday afteroon. I cooked our first meal last night, although Brayden and I were sad daddy didn't get to enjoy it with us. I made poppyseed chicken casserole with a side of green beans! It was yummooo!!! I'll be cooking it again, and a plus was Brayden LOVED LOVED it. He ate 2 plates of it :) Anyway, really all we like now on the house is having the outside painted and a few touchups on paint on the inside, buy gas logs and get gas tanked moved from my in-laws house. They've had a tank for several years that they haven't even used, and so graciously are giving us the tank :) Which by the way is saving us a ton of money for having to rent one each year and or trying to find a used one for decent money which can take a while to find. So thank you Sandra and Victor! We do appreciate it so very much :) So I just now realized that I never blogged about our trailer AKA pull behind!
We sold it on August 10th and the movers came and picked it up on August 20th. It was a very bittersweet day. Brayden watched the guys through the whole process of getting it moved. I didn't cry, I wanted too very badly but I didn't. I know we had outgrown it, but its just the fact that its the first place we ever lived together, Brayden's first home... :'( It just makes me sad to think that we won't ever see it again. I'm glad that we sold it, I was really scared that we weren't. God took care of us after many many prayers! I think about it all the time, I'm weird I know. I mean we have more room in this house than we know what to do with, we aren't stepping on each other, everything has a place to go, AND that red furniture is gone!!! Tad and I to this day have no idea why in the world we wanted red microfiber furniture! A little piece of advice, microfiber and kids DO NOT mix!!!!

That's about it for tonight :) Brayden and I are super excited about watching Eli tomorrow at the football game, he gets to start :)
I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week and weekend :)

We are Here, There and Everywhere!

So, its catch up time once again... I've became a slacker once again. :( Here we go..

We are in the house!! Wohoo, the kitchen isn't finished yet, but will hopefully be done tomorrow ;) I'm so excited about seeing the granite around the fireplace. We still have lots of things that aren't in the house. Like our dressers are still at my mommas house and all of Tad's clothes and the majority of mine..Brayden's clothes are all in the house. I think the painter is going to start on the outside sometime this week! I can't wait to see it, its yellow.. Tad picked it out :)

Brayden is growing so fast! He now prays for every meal for the family, if you have a conversation with him he'll say "you think thats a good idea?" I'm like whoa! Where are you learning all this new stuff?? He has FINALLY learned how to ride his bicycle that we got him for his birthday. He's gotten really good about saying Thank you and Your Welcome.

I pick up the Russell kiddos Monday through Thursday from school and keep them until Aunt Sam picks them up. Brayden and I enjoy it, we love to spend time with those kids! :) I went to the Dot Mom conference this weekend, had a good time... I did tear up twice because I missed Brayden. I've never been anywhere without tadpole or my momma. So this was a little out of my comfort zone. I had anxiety about it all last week, but wouldn't let myself back out of it because I knew God wanted me to go hear all the great things that I learned. I made it through and I'm glad that I went! Tad and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary on September 5th. We enjoyed our day together in Prattville, Montgomery, Troy and Enterprise :) We traveled all over that day. We had a wonderful day, despite the awful looks we got in Jim N Nicks in Prattville. The people eating there stared us down the whole time we were there, we ate and got OUT!

Brayden and Sophie, I love these 2 kids! They crack me up, They say they are boyfriend/girlfriend. Tad, Brayden and I LOVE us some Sophie now! If Toyia and Kyle would give her to us, we would take her no questions asked :)) Soph decided that she wanted to go home with Brayden and I one day and of course I let her:) She also told me this morning that she was going home with me after church! I might just have to get her one afternoon soon:) *cough*cough* Toyia! *L*
My momma bought an underwater camera for her diving trips and you know us, we HAD to try it out on one of our Saturday pool days!

Our living room as of this afternoon :)
