Revamping my house

Since Harold wants us to move I now get to have the fun of making my house ready to put up for sale. So I am going to paint my kitchen cabinets and counters to make them not so ugly boring and i get to learn to tile cause we are going to tile the kitchen and bathroom floors and do new carpet in the bedrooms. It is going to pricey but worth I hope! We are going to see if we can get it all done within our budget of $3500 so if you have any ideas please pass them along they are greatly appreciated!

Well it has been a while as i am busy with other hobbies such as my girls and school and being on little trips here and there.

Anyway, the girls and i went to visit bishop california to see how we liked it as harold spends a lot of time there while we were there he asked how we would like to live there and then he decided to take us to look at houses so i guess we will more than likely be on the move again i just wish it was not so far away from family and friends but then again everything happens for a reason and we have to take em as they come.

so if any one has any moving tips they would be much appreciated as this will be move number 6 in four years and who know how many more down the line hopefully not to many more.

Lilly is finally starting to pull herself up on things and will be starting physical therapy next week to her start walking as she is almost two and not walking or talkingbut she is babbling and we have finally come to the realization that she is going to developa little slower than normal so we are learning patience and thank goodness for the power of prayer or i am not sure i would make it.

Emily is turning into quite the little bossy helper but thatis ok because at least she cleans up after herself most of the time and i dont have to trip over so many toys. Emily loves to play in her kitchen and to have play dates with her friends.

I miss everyone so much and yearn alittle for the old days when life was simpler but time must go on so we will part and struggle to keep in contact. Well i will write more later as i must go put little ones to bed.

This month has been full of surprises and lots of good times. Emily is still our chatterbox and loves the park and going to church she wants everyday to be church. We know she is all girl because at age 3 she loves chocolate and what girl doesn't!

Lilly had her first visit to the dentist, followed by surgery because of a broken tooth... all is better know yea!

Harold is enjoying his job and is headed up in a helicopter tomorrow. His favorite part because he gets to fly.

I have been busy with school and busy canning green beanspeaches and blueberries.

Harold, is working all the time but, that is ok cause we are paying off student loans. However, we miss him like crazy and wish that he would quit breaking or losing his phone. he is also busy with the scouts and young men of our ward.

Emily is not so scared of the potty anymore. Yeah! She also is picking up some of our bad habits and making them her own like just shoving clothes in any drawer and calling it good or leaving dirty clothes on the floor rather than putting them in the hamper, but they are just minor things so we don't worry about them to much.

Lilly is scooting all over the place and pulling herself up on things she is very active and having a lot of fun discovering new things. She likes to play emily and is very interested in music. in church she helps direct from our seatsand sings along with everyone.. we love it!

Lilly is getting so big and is cruising around in her walkerand gets any toes that are in the way.

Merry Christmas!

We are spending Christmas in our new house! The girls are are getting big and are loving the wrapping paper!! I should have just wrapped boxes...hehe!We are loving being able to paint and so we chose morrocan red and olive green for the kitchen and dining room. Emily is potty trained YEAH!!! Lilly is sitting up on her own and loves the walker. Lilly is heavier than Emily now so we call her chunk and bug.
Harold is enjoying work and is now able to be at home instead of on the road at nite. we enjoy having the extra hands around the house to get things done.
