Entry and office

Okay so here are some pictures. I forgot the camera this afternoon and had to take the pictures tonight so I will post exterior pictures and "move that Geo" tomorrow. Sorry its a little anti climatic. I posted a lot of picts mainly because I'm pretty in love with the place. It took us exactly 3 months and 1 day to finish except the touch up we have left to do. Its only paint touch up and getting the outside ready and the cabinet molding now. Tomorrow I start moving us in YEAH!
This is the office and we will put our nice big desk on the red wall. Its the room that is to the right when you go in the front door above. The other door on the left of the picture is the coat closet.

This is a picture niche that is right to the left when the door opens

I forgot this picture earlier...its looking to the boys rooms and also to the hall that leads to the master. I love the arches and wanted to show them off!

Master Bath and room

Our fan takes weird lightbulbs and I forgot to pick them up so sorry its dark in this pict

Our master bath is one of our favorite rooms. Especially the floor.

Okay and the tub...Im in LOVE with the tub and cant wait to soak in it!

Our closet

Great room, nook, and billiard room

This is the billiard room and the lamp is awesome and from when I was growing up as a kid.

I sure hope you have some time because there are a lot of posts to look through! I couldnt help myself, there were so many good pictures from our trip! I promise house pictures on Tuesday some time (and there will be a lot of posts then too)! Sorry but there is just so much to share!

Highlights from our weekend

Each year we get together with all of my family at my parents house to do an early Christmas. Its a great tradition that I love. We were able to go to Disneyland, eat good food, go to the temple, take family pictures, eat good food, play games, go look at Christmas lights, visit with extended family, eat good food, and just hang out while eating good food. Perhaps the fact that we have lived off of fast food for a month made the food seem so good! We laughed so much and just enjoyed having everyone together!

More Disneyland picts

Here are a few more!

The castle looked so cool this year!

John is the KING of finding the dream squad in the morning to get us fast passes. Hes done it 3 times before this and didn't let us down this trip either. After we got them Ashlynn kept saying "I love my Uncle John, I have the best Uncle ever." I would agree!

Ohhhhhhh! Gramps with 5 of his 6 kiddos!


We were able to go to Disneyland on both Wednesday night and Thursday all day. It was great and so much fun at Christmas time. On Wednesday night we were on Main street when they make it snow and its so cool and so realistic. Anyway here are some of the highlights. The cousins were so EXCITED to see each other and it was so cute to hear them all squeal when they finally saw each other. They were all holding hands and wouldnt let go all night long!

The new babies


We went to Washington and wanted to post a few of the pictures from our trip. We couldn't believe that it snowed and that we happened to be there on the 2nd rainiest day in Seattles history! Johns sister Karey and her husband Mike were the perfect hosts and took such good care of us! We also got to spend time with his brother Chris and his wife Dianna and their new little baby The weather ruined a few of our plans but all in all we adjusted. We got to visit with Lisa's Aunt and Uncle and our little nephew Kai. Along with one of Johns oldest friends Joe, our adopted Grandma Ruth, our Grandpa Biehl and Aunt Nancy, Marie, and Uncle Dean.

Momma and the boys relaxing. It felt so good to just relax, sleep, and cuddle!

Davis and Aliya having fun banging on the piano.
Caleb and Zachary got along really well and had so much fun playing together. There were mostly getting into mischief but they really loved being with each other.
