Home Sweet Home



So for those of you who don't know, we purchased our first house! One of the doctor's Don works with, who was also in our ward, called us up one night and told us that they had just bought another house, needed to sell this one quickly, and would give us a killer deal if we wanted it. So that night we drove over to look at it and after much back and forth and freaking out (mostly by me), we decided to get it. We LOVE it! It is in a great neighborhood on a coldesack. We got to stay in our ward, which we love, and we are really excited. We are learning how to take care of the yard and still have a few more paintings to find homes for, but we are more or less pretty settled now. So come on out and visit us everyone! ;)

Brighton has had a great time playing in her new backyard. She loves to hide up under the big trees and with the recent warm weather has pretty much lived outside. Her blow-up pool from last year popped so she picked this princess pool out. She calls it her swimmy castle and LOVES it! The pictures of the princesses on it are kind of scary looking, but she doesn't seem to mind so whatever. :)

Congrats on your new house... but I hope that doesn't mean you'll never move back!! Bri could not be girlier if she tried. She is stinkin' cute. Hope to see you this summer.

Lovely house!!! I hope that I can see it in person one day.
The princess pool is an obvious winner for Brighton, isn't it?

Oh my gosh, this is AMAZING! Congratulations! And I dig the creepy princess pool. That is backyard made for a big imagination, and I have to admit that a fab ruffle swimsuit was on the top of my list for reasons to want a girl baby lol

Welcome to the world of a mortgage! We've had one for 9 years as of this month---can't believe it's gone that fast!
