We've been doing a lot of this....


The joys of buying a new home there is no landscaping.... and the only 2 enjoying it is Peyton and Brody! Hopefully it will be all done by the time we get back from Canada.

Our New Home...

I'm totally in LOVE with our NEW home!
We have been waiting along time to buy our first house and we finally found the perfect one.
It is WAY bigger than Brett wanted, and came with a few extras that helped seal the deal.
5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a family room, formal living room, dining room, and a loft. Now only if it came with furniture and a maid!

To the family room,
and a hall off to the right that has a bathroom, laundry room and guest room..

The sitting area is off to the right

Loft/toy room

Peyton's room

Brody's room-not a very good pic. His room is shaped funny so it's hard to get a good view.

4th bedroom upstairs, Brett made this his office.

The guest room (which is downstairs) has nothing in it except my sewing desk, so i didn't take a pic.

The backyard.
We have a "wash" behind us which is basically desert stuff that blocks other houses. Anyways we see different animals running through it all the time like, a fox, bunnies, gofers, lizards and who knows what else. The kids love chucking their toys over and i'm not sure why because i can't retrieve them.

Stress.... this is what happens when too many things happen in the same week!

Brett and i just bought our first home (that's another post) and we moved into it April 24/25. Then the painters got their dates messed up and couldn't paint until we were already moved in, so i had to keep my kiddos away from the paint! So not fun when you have 2 active, curious little boys. I have to say they did pretty good though and only got paint on their feet once, each!

So to keep myself sain, i bought this piece of cake from target. They had samples and it was so yummy i caved. My kids and i enjoyed the entire thing.

Then we had our Anniversary 2 days after we moved into the new house. Yep seven years, oh how time flies! Well we didn't get to do much because I had my last cake decorating class the same night so we enjoyed even more cake when i got home.

Then my birthday was 2 days later! (I don't recommend any of this, just some advice, plan your wedding and move around no other events!)
Brett's parents were in town and watched our kids that night so Brett and i could go for dinner. It was sure nice to have a break from my kids, that was a great gift!

Then i got to enjoy lunch with these girls the following day! It was great food and great company!
My little shadow came with me...

Ellie and Elizabeth...
and Arriana and Natalie!
Thanks ladies for taking my out, i love lunch dates!!!

Then Brett's parents had a dinner at Vince and Shannon's AZ home and we celebrated yet again. The kids had so much fun together as they always do. Avery was the little leader and they followed her around all cute.

My entourage!

Brett's mom and aunt made me the CAKE i requested (since Brett had no clue) and it was sure yummy. They did run out of frosting but it didn't matter it was so scrumptious any way! Thank you so much.....

So at the end of the week i would have to say i ended up forgetting about all the stress and chaos and enjoyed myself. All the cake eating might of had a little something to do with it....mmm it was so worth it.
