Fish Tale

So I can't get this picture to go bigger, but anyway, Chris and his dad and brother went fishing and Chris caught this monster Steelhead! Unfortunately it had a clipped fin, so they thought they couldn't keep it - turns out, those are the ones you CAN keep!

AND NOW...THE MOMENT YOU'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR...MODEL HOME OPEN HOUSE! (mostly)

Corner lot




Look, my van is already in the garage...does that make it mine? ;o)


Ok, these are in reverse order because I haven't quite figured out my blog yet...heehee

This is the upstairs (3rd bedroom) girls room.



I love the look of pepto bismol everywhere! No...I really do!




This room wasn't finished when I took the pics - it was later turned into a toy room.

1st upstairs bedroom (Safari theme, LOVE it!)


2nd upstairs bedroom (YEEHAW)

The den wasn't done either when I took these pics, so I'll have to get more later - I'm dying to see the toy room! I told the designer that there needed to be some appeal to couples with young children (because the downstairs...NOT kid-friendly, I know!). So she decided to turn the upstairs room into a toy room instead of a library.

Seriously, my pictures DO NOT do this home justice! Everybody went gaga over the place.

It's good to be a Princess

Today was a fun day for the kids (and me!). They spent the morning at the Hollon's house. It was nice for them to play with Emma while Ann and I visited! Then in the afternoon, Emma came to our house while her sisters were at their violin lessons. Here they are dressed up as princesses and playing with Play-Doh!

Do you ever have a day...

Do you ever have a day when you revert back to easier times? (I think we could all use a few more of those). Well...Avonleigh crawled into Payton's stroller and covered up with a baby blanket. She is eating an apple, but in her other hand is a binky (for a doll). She was having binky lament and kept trying to suck on this hard plastic binky. And to top if all off, the shirt she's wearing is size 18 mo (she's 2 and a half years old)! She changed into this shirt before getting into the stroller. What a cutie!
