Just like the energizer bunny!

Today was kind of a stressful day. It started out great with my friend Dagmar coming over, but then it kind of headed down hill for a while. We have this hole in the front of our house where the previous owners had put in a pond. They ripped it out before we moved in, so we had to fill it in with Dirt. We had hired a young fellow to come and do the work for us, but he got sick and ended up asking his grandpa, who runs the nursery part of the business, to come and dump the dirt. He showed up by himself and I asked him if he needed me to help guide him back up the truck. He kindly rejected me so I stood aside and watched. Well some older folks don't have very goodjudgement when it comes to distances. This man happened to be one of them. He was like theenergizer bunny. He kept going and going and going....until it was to late, he was over the side walk and sliding down into the hole and into our house. Luckily the truck hit the corner of our garage and didn't do a ton of damage, but still, we have only been living here for a couple of weeks! We were blessed, he could have done a lot more damage than he did. Oh well, life goes on...just like that energizer bunny :)

The house

As many of you know we just purchased a home. It is a wonderful home and we are so very happy with the way it turned out. We have put a lot of work into it, paint, carpet, wood flooring, and a lot of elbow grease. We still have a ways to go, but we love our beautiful home!
The living room:
The kitchen:
The master bedroom:
Brooklyn's Room:
Formal dinning room

There are more pictures on my facebook page if you are interested. I will post one of the boys room is really cute, we painted it. I just have to make them pick it up first :)

Oh how I love my bathroom!

I just LOVE our new house but my absolute favorite part of the whole house is the master bathroom! I have never had a bathroom like this and I love it. I especially love the tub:)

Yard Work

Today as the boys played outside and Brooklyn slept, I decided I was going to do some yard work. So I got out my little branch cutters and was going to cut the palm trees and the bushes outside. As I was putting on my gloves my good neighbor Danny saw and me and before I knew it I heard a power saw being reved up. He walked over to me and said, "You are more than welcome to use this. It is really easy." So he showed me and so I gladly took it off his hands. I have never gotten to use a power tool before. IT IS AWESOME! So I trimmed all the bushes and then I trimmed the palm trees. The branches were so overgrown they were hanging all the way to the ground. Even though the palms are brown I still say they look much better than they did. There is some green so hopefully they will return to life when spring comes. The job could have taken the whole day, but, thanks to danny it only took me an hour :) I have decided that I love working in the yard! Hopefully I will still enjoy it when it is 95 degrees outside and 100% humidity.
