As Promised....

I found the Halloween picture from 1997 of Darren and I as a dead bride and groom!! I had just turned 16 and he was 17!! We were at a church scavenger hunt. The best part was when we drove up to the hospital and I ran up to the door because we needed a red ink pen....the lady at the desk thought I was really hurt :-) I guess that wasn't the smartest place for us to stop but that year each group had a specific area they were made to stay in. And remember that was my mom's wedding dress....after that night of running around looking for odd items around town it had seen it's day, had had fake blood stains on it :-)

Now back to the present day...
This is what the old lights looked like on the front of the house. There were three of them. Yesterday Darren got busy putting up new ones.Here he is hard at work!And here are the new lights! Much better looking, don't you think?!? While we put the lights up the kids played out in the driveway. We made hopscotch and drew ourselves with chalk. Lots of fun!Hailey showed Jack how to jump on the hopscotch :-)"See, like this Jack...come on"Enough of the chalk...now on to the 3-wheelers...they love the cul-de-sac! So here is Jack's room so far...

He needs a dresser and some other toy holder thingy
And here is Hailey's room...we got her some new curtains...but they are not up yet.

Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!

I love the new lights! That will look great with black shutters. Jack looks super cool in his Beatles shirt! He also looks very talented at hopscotch!

Don't you love being on a cul de sac? We don't really have a place here for the kids to ride their bikes, it's super hilly.

I love that picture. You guys look so young.
The lights look great. I really like Hailey's quilt, too. Was it in her old room?

OMG! You look gorgeous even when you're DEAD!

Don't you love husbands that are all handy and home-improvement oriented? Yeah, I know!

See you at the wedding Saturday!

I was the opposite, sweets with sage and salty with noah. I couldn't get enough bacon with noah. Hmmm, bacon does sound good.

Labor Day weekend sounds GREAT! I am so excited already! I will mark it on our calendar and make sure that we don't make any other plans. :)
Yes, the offer on the house is the same guy that made the verbal offer...we'll find out tomorrow for sure if he accepted our counter.
