Our Big News!


After 3 months on the market, lots of showings but no offers, last night our realtor came over to tell us we had an offer. The offer, to put it mildly, was ridiculous. So for 2 hours we went back and forth with counter-offers. In the end, I think we did well. We didn't go below what we needed to get into a new house, and we have some time to find that next home. I'm excited, nervous, and stressed suddenly all at once! Hoping that next week we'll take a day to look at the houses we're interested at this point. mid-April, no matter what, we'll be somewhere else!

Christmas pics

I know I'm a little late on this, but here are just a few pictures from Christmas time!

Auntie Amber got Emily just what she wanted...a tutu and fairy wings.

Christmas seemed to be filled with Dora this year...

My super cute, super cool little guy modeling his new shades
Christmas Village, where my dad insists on journeying when he's around for the holidays. I actually enjoyed it much more this time, probably because the last time he took us there, it was blizzard conditions and ridiculously cold.

Overall, we had a wonderful holiday. Emily finally seems to "get it" this year with Santa and presents and everything else. Looking forward to next year when Owen's in the same boat.
