The Bond of Brothers...or Sisters

Yesterday, Cody got up, and much to my dismay, his first stop was to Tyler's room to make sure his little brother was awake. Today, Tyler woke up is a little harder for him as he cannot get out of his crib by himself, but the first place he went was to Cody's door. I told him that his brother was still sleeping, and he looked disappointed. They love each other, and just want to be together from the moment they wake up.
I remember feeling that way...sneaking out of my room to sleep with Leah or Andrew. I am glad they have each other to share their secrets with. I can't wait to see how their friendship unfolds as they grow together.

We were visiting at Great Grandma's house today, and Cody was inquisitive as usual...he asked what this contraption was and I told him it was a chip clip. He took it literally and clipped it to a chip and started munching. We got a good laugh out of it.

More pictures...with furniture.

We still have lots to do, but we have the big stuff unpacked. We have water, electric, septic tank and gas...what more do you need?

The Long Awaited...

Our house is finally here. They drove it in two pieces from ABQ on Wednesday afternoon. Getting it up the hill was no problem!

The crew came in on Thursday to put the 2 pieces together, and much to my dismay, were not done until Tuesday morning. We started moving as soon as they were done, and almost all the boxes are unpacked. Cody has been extatic to show everyone his new house, especially his toys that have been in storage for the past months. He has been helpful unpacking boxes, and playing with the empty ones!

I love the kitchen, and the ample storage space,

but my favorite is the large tub in the master bathroom.
After a breif argument about furniture placement in the living room, we found the perfect placement for our couches in the large living room.

We have moved everything out of Dwayne's garage, but still need to hook up the electricity before we move in, so all the stuff inside the house still needs to be moved. Hopefully we will be living in our new home by this weekend!

Our house

Our house is almost ready to move into. I am sure the workers are tired of my constant progress checks, but I am excited. They have the house together and have taped and textured the seam...just trim and carpet left. Hopefully moving stuff in tomorrow!

Baby doll

I enjoy our bedtime routine. The kids are cute in PJ's, I like to hear Cody's version of his favorite stories, and listen to what he prays about. Last night we had a normal routine, and when we were done, I went to the door and said "goodnight babydoll" and started to close the door. Cody said "Mom, I'm Cody, NOT babydoll." I almost broke out into laughter!
