The long awaited, and much promised, picture post!

This has been an awesome weekend. I cannot begin to tell you how amazing it was. We had such a fun weekend and for the first time to me, this place started to feel like home.

Friday I was up till 12:30 bustin' it to get the house ready! Yesterday we had a garage sale and made decent money, and then last night had an amazing housewarming party (part of which was a present from our realtor, thank you Wendy!) 50-60 of our friends came out and the house was FULL! (And the yard had kids playing soccer, and swinging and having fun!) I am continually amazed by our fabulous family and friends. We are really lucky to have them, and such an awesome house! Everyone loved it and the neighborhood kids *might* have finally decided it will no longer be called "the scary house."

Today was a day of rest. We napped. (glorious!) We played. We ate leftovers. (Have tons!) And the babies went to the pet store and picked out their first pet, a red beta fish. He's currently "sleeping" in their room. Jack read him goodnight moon before bed and Summy whispered "goodnight fish" before he went to bed.

On the way home from the pet store, right before dinner, we saw the ice cream truck was at the corner. Now my childhood sadly lacked the ice cream truck due to an ordinance passed in my city banning them after a child was killed running into the street to get ice cream. I must admit I am super excited every time I hear the music playing a street away. Before tonight we just danced with the babies and told them it was a "music truck" (for fear we'd actually have to buy ice cream every time) but tonight we walked down, stood in line, and Summy took 2.00 and gave it to the man in the truck (and then cried b/c he didn't "get it") and got 2 Jr. Rocket pops. One for him, one for Jack. Jack quickly exclaimed "big suckers!" The pictures show what ensued. Enjoy. I know I did. Summer is officially almost here!














Love the one David took of Jack kissing me. Here it is again in black and white. Not sure which I like better...

glad the party was a success!!! :)

The ice cream truck has driven by here as well and I've been tempted to go out but also fear opening that can of worms. The boys look like they enjoyed the treat!

Can't wait to see pictures of the house!
