Getting Settled in Our New Home

We are officially all moved in to our new house! It feels like a dream. This is literally our custom dream home. It’s the perfect size for us, it’s gorgeous, and we’ve got lots of land to play with. It’s starting to sink in, but I still can’t believe it sometimes. It took a lot of hard work and a lot of patience, but we feel so incredibly blessed to be where we are now. After almost 8 years of marriage, we built our first home! I can’t wait for all the years of memories we get to make in this beautiful house.

Ryan’s Birthday and Moving Day!

Our house is finally done and we are moving in tomorrow! It still doesn’t feel real… I think once we spend our first night there it might 😃

Monday was Ryan’s birthday, and he decided he wanted to spend the day with me! It’s been such a busy year that we’ve been putting regular dates on the back burner. It was really nice to hang out all day just the 2 of us. First we went to my OB appointment where my doctor declared me full term and commented on how very healthy I am. That was great to hear because I feel like I’m dying half the time… I’m so incredibly uncomfortable!

See how there’s only half a cake here? That’s because he cut it and served it to everyone before we had a chance to sing to him. I’m so lucky he’s mine ❤️

We were just starting to dig our foundation in this panorama

House Updates: May 2018 (and other sappy stuff)

Our house is looking more and more like a real house every day. Especially now that the sheet rock is in and the siding is going up. Ryan put in our septic tank today (it’s a gravity system, which he’s very proud of). I’ve been taking the boys there to just hang out and play in the big dirt piles while I walk through our future home and try to picture where things will go. It’s surprisingly hard to do. I can’t wait to actually start moving stuff in so I can see how it will actually fit!

Daddy & Kender working hard together. The boys worked so hard that they actually fell asleep at bedtime tonight! It was a miracle!
