We purchased a home!!!
Yep, it's a done deal. Josh and I are now officially homeowners! It's so surreal. We have already started to paint :) I am absolutely NO good at picking out paint colors, lol. What I see in my mind just doesn't quite transfer into real life! And painting is HARD! I haven't ever painted whole rooms before, and oh my goodness is it way different from what I expected.We have the master bath painted, and most of the master bedroom painted (haven't done the trey ceiling yet), plus the upstairs bonus room (which was supposed to be grey, but is very blue, lol). The next thing will be the kids rooms and the other bathroom. We have to wait until some sheet rock work is done in the kitchen/dining room/living room. We are also looking at replacing some of the carpet, and trying to refinish the living room floor. Our goal of a two week move-in date is probably a bit optimistic! But we should definitely be moved in and settled before Kyson's 3rd (sniff sniff) birthday party on October 20th! We are decorating his room and doing his party pirate themed! At the party all of the little kids are getting bandana's, eye patches, swords, and spy glasses! It should be so much fun! He loves to play dress up, Peter Pan and Captain Hook are his favorites, with Jake (from the Disney show Jake and the Neverland Pirates) right behind them. We are trying to figure out how to set up a "walk the plank" station and a treasure hunt! I'm excited :) He is officially potty trained :) It was so ridiculously easy! I guess he was a little more than ready, lol. He hardly ever ever has an accident, and even keeps his pull-up dry at nap and bedtime! And can even wear underwear when we go out and about! I am so proud of him :) :) He is such a big boy!! Kaedrianna has such a BIG personality! She reminds me so much of my mom :) If she grows up to be half as strong and smart as she is I will be one happy parent :) We are so blessed and favored!
