A House Becomes a Home

Has it been 4 months since my last real post. Yes! I think that time just gets away from you in the summer kinda like a dream, and then reality hits and it's dreaded winter again. To say that the last 4 months have been busy would be an understatement...more like a whirlwind, but it's over now :)

I think she looks like Tyler in this one...except with asian eyes and such.
A little more about Brynlee....

She is now 16 months old. Wow! She is such a joy to be around and I love her with all my heart! She impresses us each and every day with how quick she is catching on and learning things. She immitates us like crazy, so we are making sure to watch what we are saying and doing...because we now have a little shadow. She is very good at making the sounds of each animal and pointing to her body parts. She loves to help me clean and of course loves little songs and books. She has discovered the television. This is good for when I am needing a minute to do the dishes or fix my hair, but try to turn it off and she will tell you what she thinks. I think that she could become an addict of television if we allowed it.

She is a very social baby. For example, it was just me and her in church yesterday (Ty was sick)...we sat in the gym because of a farewell and she probably sat on 5 different strangers laps, brought back licorice, and toys of all sorts and flirted with anyone who would lay eyes on her. Oh, and then at one point I had her by the skirt, ya know the stretchy part. Oh did she think that was something to giggle at...well, somehow she got away and sprung forward into the collapsible wall thing. She laughed and unfortunatley so did everyone else...I really could've used Ty's firmness this Sunday. Oh well, I guess it was entertaining for all those around us.

And I could go on and on...hopefully I will be now updating this a little more, so if you care, I will be divulging more on our sweetheart.

A little more about Tyler...

*So happy to have his hot rod down just look at for now until he has the space to work on it.
*Hates school from the bottom of his heart!! Just 2 more 1/2 time semesters...You can do it!!!!
*Is oober proud of being the only one in society to not be on Facebook.

A little more about Sara...

*Is suddenly much more aware of all of the crap that is in our food (high fructcose corn syrup, preservatives...etc.)
*Loves life, but would like it to slow down.
*Makes dang good zucchini bread...mmmm!!


This was taken probably 4 months ago while Brynlee was helping us work on the house... Notice the circled area on the bucket.

Does this qualify me for Mom of the year? I think not.
We did manage to make a little fun for ourselves this summer. The funnest part was watching our little baby become a toddler. She is a walking diva now!! We also of course ate ourselves silly with hamburgers and hotdogs and swam a bit, well 2 or 3 times (which is miniscual - considering there is now a pool basically in our front yard) and thanks to the Butler's made it to one out-of-town sort of trip to Bear Lake.
(Butler's, Hodson's, Allred's....Rodriguez's came too, but had to leave early)

We spent the summer months mostly finishing our home in the 105 degree heat. Yah, that was fun and all, but I am happy that we are now just sitting here on a Monday night relaxing together as a family. THANKYOU to all of our wonderful family and friends who spent a lot of tiresome hours helping. We hope to someday be able to return the favor somehow.

These are pictures before we moved in all of the furniture. I will at some point decorate...and then put up some more pictures. My favorite rooms ended up being Brynlee's striped yellow room. Notice in the picture it still needs Chair rail around it....yep, still haven't done that. It is on our checklist of about 100 different things. That is not an exaggeration either. I also love how the kitchenn turned out ...oh, and the dark brown wall. I was a little scared for that, but am now loving it. BUT I'm not so much looking forward to the day when dark brown is out of style and we have to paint over it.

And that is all for now. Sometimes I wonder if it is worth writing on a blog. I had a good friend get rid of hers and so it kinda tempted me ( I won't mention any names, but her name starts with a K and ends with an ATIE.) It does seems like a lot of work and just one more to-do, but for now here it stays.

If you like Hip-Hop...

I started writing a blog, but now I am way too tired to tomorrow...or will happen.

In the meantime I found this amusing. Maybe you have already seen this...and maybe not. And I hate to admit it, but I really do love hip hop music...and Justin Timberlake. So prepare yourself for the Jimmy Fallon/Justin Timberlake--History of Rap:

xoxo Sara
