Long Time Gone

























































I doubt anyone checks this blog anymore because I never update! I've been meaning to - but I have been seriously busy! I hate moving! But I love my new house. We are finally in. Aside from the exterior painting (which will have to wait until spring) - the house is finally, finally finished. I didn't believe the day would ever come. We are loving it so far - but it's quite a task to get everything unpacked. The garage is still compeltely full of stuff but I think we have lost all motivation for a week or so. I'll get to it eventually. Aside from that, not much has been going on - which is why I never update. I don't want to bore people to death. But I love checking everyone else's blogs - it's so fun to get updated on people's lives and see pictures. Daisy is growing so fast - I can't believe she's almost nine months. She's been crawling since January and is now walking around all of the furniture. And the best of all , she is finally, FINALLY sleeping in her own crib! And sleeping through the night! (Most of the time...) Andy just wants to be outside all of the time. He wants to go ride bikes, walking, whatever. Unfortunately , although we've had some sunny days it's still pretty cold here. And he's sick today, which never happens, so I think we're going to have to wait for some warmer weather. He got a brand new game the other day - Go Fish. He loves it. He makes us play it all the time. He doesn't understand the rules 100%, but he is so cute playing it I just love it. He is obsessed with anything to do with transportation. Motorcycles, snowmobiles, bikes, 4-wheelers, trucks, trains... you name it. But his latest obsession is airplanes. He flies around the house all day with his arms out and his motor running. Yesterday morning I asked him "Are you an airplane today Andy?" And he just looked at me and said "All the time I am!" - Like I should just assume. My dad brought him back a toy bi-plane from their trip to Washington D.C. and now he's learning about all of the different types of planes. He even watches some old show called Sky King with my dad. It's not a cartoon or anything.. it just has airplanes in it.
Well I'm going to attempt to post a few pics now... they never go where I want them to, but here goes. I hope someone (or two!) leaves me a comment so I know if anyone even reads this darn thing or not.

Your house looks so nice! I love the tile backsplash in the kitchen. It's also good to hear about how your kids are doing. I can't believe Daisy is 9 months old now. Anyway, it's nice to see you updated!

The house looks great Rita! It has a lot of your flavor and style, and looks good. We look forward to hanging out with you guys a bit this summer, and Dane is way excited.
