Here she is lounging under the kitchen table at my parent's house. Yep, she has on boy pj's because I am having the worst time finding heavy sleepers in her size! But she likes these because they have a dog on them.
Matt's students had a great time skiing and snowboarding. Two of them did have to go the the emergency room on the first day, which was really scary, but they were both fine. One of the girls couldn't ski anymore because she pulled a muscle in her knee. Other than that, everyone made it with minimal injuries. They are going shopping today and leaving to drive home tomorrow. It has been really fun! We are still supposed to close on Tuesday, but they still had a lot to do on the house, so we are hoping that everything goes as planned.
Okay, here is a picture of our new house! Well, not ours quite yet, but soon! I will post some pictures of the inside after we move our stuff in at the end of the month. We went over today to check up on the progress of all the finish work (Matt did a walk through last week and put blue tape on everything that needs to be finished before we close). The top picture is Mackenzie checking out her new closet! We also measured for blinds (Matt in the middle picture - I could have helped, but it was more fun taking pictures of him doing it =) ).
Kenzie has climbed into this little basket 3 or 4 times she keeps getting stuck! I gave it to her to put laundry in, put right now her goal in life is to climb on or in to everything she possibly can.
Chloe and Mackenzie playing - they are two little peas in a pod.
Pigtails! Girls are so much fun...
Like I said, Mackenzie likes to climb into EVERYTHING lately. Here she is inside her toy box. She was actually trying to reach the cd player behind it - turning things on and off is also one of her current hobbies.
Mackenzie LOVED this dump truck at MOPS. She kept climbing into the back of it and cried when a little boy wanted to play with it!
Being totally goofy.
I know I haven't been good about giving updates on the house situation - sorry! The sellers have been very stubborn and only counter-offered a thousand dollars lower than their asking price after our first offer. We countered again and didn't hear anything for a week - turns out they were keeping us on hold because they thought that they were going to get another offer. They did finally counter again, and although it wasn't quite what we were hoping for, we accepted it. We just know that we are not going to get another chance to get a house like this. It is new construction but on an older street with a few other new homes as well as some older homes that are in good shape. It is a 3 bed 2 bath, 1500 sq. foot (pretty typical for this area), and it also has a little bonus room off of the living room that I love. So as of now our closing date is March 27. We can not wait to move, especially since someone just moved into the duplex behind us (attached to ours), and we also got some new neighbors to the side who own enough cars to open a small used car lot. And then there are the neighbors on our other side whose kids like to celebrate new year's with horns right during Mackenzie's naps. So, as you can imagine, we are sooooo excited and ready to move! And we feel so blessed to be able to have this house. Not so excited to move, but it is so worth it! We will keep you all posted on the move and whatnot.
