Finally I am posting some pictures of the house. Every time I though to take pictures, the house was a wreck. So, I finally decided that it didn't matter because it just looks "lived in"! Anyway, the pictures are not that great. The house is prettier in person. SO, come see it!

Here is our new armouire in our bedroom (beautiful in person)

Our messy desk with Chris' ducks (I couldn't talk him into hanging them in the garage)
Dining room looking into the foyer. The table is full of pictures to be hung.
Foyer looking into dining room
One of my favorite things about the house is all the neat details. Here is the top corner of the trim around all the doors. All trim is painted cream and the walls are a dark Khaki.

Master bathroom (love the tub!)

Breakfast room

I love our new table. This is a close up of the detail on the chairs
I love the thick legs!

Kid's bathroom

Living room (we are planning on getting a family picture made to hang above the fireplace)

John Evan's room

Sydney's room (she wants to paint it pink)

Well, I hope you enjoy! Sorry it took so long to post pictures!
Come see us!

Sydney started ballet class a couple of weeks ago. She loves it! She is so cute when she comes home and shows Daddy what she has learned.

Emma and Sydney

My friend, Nicole, and her family came to Tuscaloosa to visit. They are from Germany, but they are currently living in Florida. She said it is like being on vacation every day. SICKENING! It was so good to see them and I miss her a lot!

Fabienne and Sydney
Kim, Madison, and Jack came to visit again! We had a lot of fun! Thanks guys!

This race was definately a lot tougher. There was a really big hill at the end. Again, my goal was to run the whole time and I did that! YEAH! My time was 31:56 (1:28 faster than last time) I told Chris to go ahead with out me. I wish I would not have done that. About half way through the song"Wish you were here" came on my MP3 player and I was so wishing he was there beside me. IT makes it so much easier to have a partner! Can't wait till the next race!

Me and Chris before the race

Me and Meghan after the race (ofcourse she beat me!)
Chris, Chad, and Chad's friend

Chad and friend bet $50 on the race. Let's just say Chad lost $50 that day!

Last bit of news...........

John Evan was so sick at his birthday party. He was running a fever and just felt pitiful, but I decided to go ahead with it. Everyone else seemed to have a good time. He never got down and played or anything. He just pretty much stayed in someone's arms and was in and out of sleep a lot.

Opening presents

The cake
Not interested! (he had a pretty bad fall a couple of days before this and skinned up and bruised his nose!)
Sydney showing him how to eat his cake

Maw Maw and John Evan

We had to back yard outlined with "Caution" tape and a Construction site sign. We also had a bunch on construction cones. It was really cute!
We had little foam construction hats for the kids to decorate. Here are Anna and Luke showing them off.

The "dirt cake"

Drew on the new playground
Sydney in the new jumping thing

He got a lot of cute BOY toys! He actually perked up a little after the crowd left and played with a balloon for a little while.
Thanks to everyone for coming to his party!

We miss our friends!

The Messervy's came in town a couple of weekends ago for Ashley C's wedding. They stayed with us Sat. night. We had a great time!
Here is Madison and Sydney at the reception

The girls tried to sleep in tents, but about 11pm I went and got Sydney and put her in the bed with us. Sydney said Madison was being loud kicking and Madison said Sydney was breathing too loud! Sounds like sisters.
