House Updates: May 2018 (and other sappy stuff)

Our house is looking more and more like a real house every day. Especially now that the sheet rock is in and the siding is going up. Ryan put in our septic tank today (it’s a gravity system, which he’s very proud of). I’ve been taking the boys there to just hang out and play in the big dirt piles while I walk through our future home and try to picture where things will go. It’s surprisingly hard to do. I can’t wait to actually start moving stuff in so I can see how it will actually fit!

Daddy & Kender working hard together. The boys worked so hard that they actually fell asleep at bedtime tonight! It was a miracle!

“Hi mom!”
This is one side of our living room where the media center (left) and wood stove (right) will go
This is the other side with the big picture window, which I love ❤️
This is the view of the kitchen and dining area when you’re standing in the living room. It’s all coming together!

And here are a couple shots from Family Home Evening (a Mormon way of saying Family Night) last night. This pregnancy has been a rough one hormonally speaking, and I turn into the Wicked Witch of the PNW anytime somebody breathes at me the wrong way, but believe me when I say that I am so grateful for this little family of mine. I’m so grateful that my body is healthy enough to bring babies into this world, and that I get to learn from and nurture these precious little spirits every day. And Ryan… I don’t know what I’d do without him. He really is my best friend and better half, and the person I trust the most in this world. These people make me better, and I love them with my whole heart ❤️
