We're all Settled

Sorry that our whole blog seems to be pictures of the house. But you gotta admit, it's a pretty be event buying your first home. So people have been asking me to take pictures of our place now that we're all moved in and settled. So here they are, as promised. I still haven't taken one of the outside...I'll get to it sometime.

Here's our family room. We've just got to add a little vinyl and then it will be complete!
Uh yeah...we still need to get a computer desk...

1/2 bath downstairs.

Our magnet board.
Our bathroom upstairs. I love Brandon's choice of yellow with the green walls.
Check out these cute baskets I got on clearance (thanks for the tip Mel) for our socs, etc. I love them!

Easter Fun

We had a GREAT Easter weekend! Friday night we went to the temple with Tara and Gary and then made dinner at our place and played games. Saturday morning we had a really fun ward activity with an easter egg hunt and breakfast. Then I went and helped my brother move, did a little shopping for our house, and me and Brandon went to see 27 Dresses Saturday night at the dollars. I really liked that movie. So then on Easter we went to our new ward for the first time and really liked it. Everyone was really friendly and made us feel very welcome. We had an awesome dinner over at the Salmon's after Church and then had an easter egg hunt. Ross always does a great job on this. It was a lot of fun! Here are a few pictures from Sunday.

We Moved!

Well, last night we moved all our stuff in to our new house. Now we just need to unpack it. :) I think it's all so much fun. It was so exciting to sleep in our new house. It felt a little bit like camping because we had NO heat. Everything got disconnected or whatever and I called yesterday and thought I had it all set up again. We did have electricity which was nice but the gas never got turned back on so we didn't have heat or hot water. :) It made for a memorable first night in our new place.

The move went really well. Thanks to everyone who came and helped! I think we were all done loading AND unloading everything in an hour and a half! We borrowed two trailers and by the time we had brought all of our stuff out of our apartment, one of the trailers was still empty so Brandon and Bryant took it to RC Willey and picked up our new furniture. So we did it all in one shot. It was awesome! We meant to buy pizza for everyone but in all the excitement it totally slipped my mind so we might have to have a belated pizza party for everyone that came to help. :) We really do appreciate all of you.

Well, since I'm stuck at work and can't be at home unpacking boxes, I will just post a few pictures of the move. Thanks Kristi for reminding me to take pictures! I know I would have forgotten!

The Best Uncle EVER!

I think my neices and nephews are the luckiest kids in the world because they have the best uncle ever! Brandon! I'm pretty sure he is everybody's favorite uncle (no offense to any of my brothers). Every time we get together with my family Brandon is always playing with the little kids, chasing them around and building forts and just anything they want to do. I think it's adorably cute and I'll tell you something, this kid is going to be the best dad in the whole world! Hopefully SOON!! Here's a picture with him playing with Brecken and Kai a few sundays ago.

Wondering where Brandon is? He's underneath all the pillows!

I'm not sure who had more fun. Brandon or the boys.
One of my favorite things to hear is Kai when he yells "Bwandon!!!" every time he sees us. Brandon is so great with kids and I just love watching him play with them. Our kids are going to have the best childhood ever. At least whenever he's around. I love you Bran!
