Okay, updates on my life:

~We have moved into our new house and are almost finished unpacking. It has just been under a week and we are loving, loving it!
We love having enough bedrooms, having a huge yard and mostly not having to show our I.D. at the gate on post to go home.

~A few weeks ago (man it has been a looong while since I updated this blog!) was my birthday. September 20. We went to a tourist-y place for window shopping and lunch. Here are a few pictures. Oh, I turned 28 in case you were wondering.

I am not very photogenic, but my daughter took this picture. She is quite the photographer. It just doesn't do justice to how beautiful it is there. I should have taken a picture of the sandwich that I had! Heaven on a plate!

~Who needs chairs? (this is at our old house, on post. The weird thing on the floor is a half-chewed dog bone. Yuck.)

~My husband got a promotion. Although it takes effect December 1, he had a ceremony a few weeks ago and gets to wear his new rank.

~I am in love with the movie The Spiderwick Chronicles. It was such a fun movie. We all watched it for our Friday night movie and the whole family loved it. I am going to have to get the book.

I guess that is the biggest things that have gone on here recently. I plan on posting some knitting posts soon. I will just end this with a funny thing Lillian said the other day:

Lillian: Can I go potty in your bedroom?

Chris: No, but you can go in our bathroom

Lillian: *giggles* Ya, that would be really rude!

Ok, first of all..thank you for FINALLY updating! I was dying for pictures!! I love the house adorable!! I can't wait to see it! I wanted a picture in front by our sold sign too, but i didn't get one!:( The kids looked so cute in their "chairs" and Lillian look positively sweet on that butterfly bench! I can't wait to see them either! That daughter of yours is such a goof! I can just hear her little voice saying that! Silly girl! Love you all!!

It's so good to hear that things are going so well for you. Sounds like you have been busy, but in a very positive way!

Happy belated birthday by the way! It is so fun that your daughter likes to take pictures, my 2 1/2 year old really does too, unfortunately she can't figure out how to hold the camera and not have her hand over the lens...funny!!

Your new house is lovely, how great to have extra space!

Have a great day and enjoy your new gate free living!

Happy Belated Birthday!

28! You're a baby! And that picture of your daughter on the butterfly bench is enchanting.
Congratulations on the new house - lovely!

First of all...CONGRATULATIONS on the darling house! Love it, and can't wait until you post pics.

Loved your photos...that one of your daughter on that darling fairy bench is FRAMEWORTHY!

We finally slept in our new home for the first time last night, but are by no means settled. We've been doing DIY projects for the past couple of weeks, and it's been a long, dusty and exhausting road. It's gonna save us big bucks in the long run, but man I'm tired of living out of boxes and on a concrete floor...and I've got an Awana conference next weekend, and then a bunch of other stuff crammed into the remainder of this month...

All that to say...I'm so glad you are loving your new home!

You don't look a day over 20!
