April 22, 2014 - House Update

I'm happy to say that we did do our walk through today.  It took 3 hours!  Not much left to do and the superintendent said he was going to try to C/O this Friday as long as he was allowed to continue to work on the punch list.  Since we aren't closing on our current house until May 30th, that will give plenty of time to move in and fix some of the stuff up.  We are getting stone put on the front of our house separate from the builder, but before we move in.  Our stone is supposed to be delivered this Friday, but it was supposed to be delivered last Friday, so we'll see.  Once the stone is up on the front of the house, I think the house will pretty much be completed.

All I can say is that everything seems to be falling into place and I can definitely see God's work in it all.  We were supposed to be in our house before Valentine's Day, but because the builder delayed on some things, it took a few months longer.  But because of the delay, our house went up on the market at the perfect time and sold rather quickly for pretty close to our asking price.  And we are so happy with how our house is turning out!  Funny how God's timing is not our timing because God's timing is perfect, even when we can't see it.  God is good!

April 20, 2014 Easter Sunday

Yesterday we did Easter Egg Hunting at our new house's neighborhood by the swimming pool.  There's a hug area with hug oak trees.  The Sprinkles came and the adults hid the eggs and the kids went and found them.  The kids got a piece of candy for every plastic egg they found.  We bought these cool decorative mirror eggs and the kids each got one to keep.  They absolutely love egg hunting!  Hopefully I can get pictures from Mrs. Sara since I forgot my camera.  I will post those pictures when I get them.

Easter Sunday the kids woke up to full Easter baskets.  For dinner, we picked up my friend Tara and met my parents at Wickham Park.  My sister Moriah, her husband Rick, and her son Aaron met us there.  We brought fruit salad, rolls and a pie.  My dad made chicken and spicy sausage, cucumber vinegar salad and macaroni salad.  My sister brought brownies and pecan pie.  Tara brought a really cute vanilla butter cream frosting Easter cake.  Everything was delicious!

April 19, 2014 - House Update

Well, it looks like we might finally be closing in on getting into our new house.  We have a walk through next Tuesday April 22nd and are supposedly C/O'ing on April 30th.  It's getting really close and there is only touch up stuff to do, including the trim on the outside of the house on the right hand column.
