Dirty Dishes

So above is a music video from American Idol winner Scotty McCreery!  He's amazing!!  And has an amazing voice!

This music video relates to my day exactly right at this moment (well, more like 30 minutes ago).

My Grandma and Mom made the LONG drive from Michigan to come see us!!  They were here for about a week in a half and lived in our crazy life.  It was a busy vacation for them and I can't say that they were able to relax at all.  But we sure loved their cooking and their company!  We were very sad to see them leave - the first thing Cooper said the morning the left was "Grandma!!" as he was coming down from upstairs.  He was so sad to hear that they went home.

We Moved!

We are FINALLY in our house!!  We were in a little over two weeks after the "expected" date to move in.  So my Mom and Grandma were here and they were able to help watch the kids, load the truck and unpack (awesome vacation huh?).  We were very grateful for them and for those who helped!!  We wouldn't have been able to do it all in one evening without everyone's help.

Now that we are in the house we love it even more!!  The space and the yard is amazing.  The kids have adjusted well and love all the space to run!!  It's also nice not to have to get on them about being quiet ALL the time!  We are still slowly unpacking but our necessities are out.

Here are a few pictures:

 our TV room.  It makes the TV look teeny tiny!
That's all for now.  I haven't taken any pictures...these were just some that Brady took real fast.  Anyway, we are loving the house and neighborhood!  It's the first ward that we've ever been in that the Relief Society Presidenty and Bishopric have welcomed us to the ward before we even made it to church!  We already have home teachers and visiting teachers.  We feel welcomed and not forgotten!!  We have met some wonderful people.  And to make things even more fun...I have met a few of my "patients" while on post-partum!  It's fun to see their babies growing up!  And I feel incredibly special that they remembered me...I hope it's a good memory and not a bad one.

I do have to mention that everything is not so great.  Our next door neighbor.  He came over the other night and asked Brady about the fence going up (Brady said it was very awkward and he was stumbling over his words).  In the conversation Brady mentioned that we are going to wait to put up the entire fence in hopes that the future neighbor might want to split the cost.  In response our neighbor said it only seemed fair that we pay him for half of his side of the fence.  I'm not sure how the rest of the conversation went but Brady said that he even made it like a threat mentioning that we can't cut into his fence to connect ours without his permission and he wouldn't give permission without us paying him.  The grand total for his fence is $1,900.00!!!  Seriously?!  And to make things worse...he had a lot to do with the fact that we even HAD to have the fence up against the road.  GRR!  He really started off bad.  Hopefully we will figure things out.  We are actually going to ask the fence company if there's anyway we can finish it without having to touch his fence.
