Just thought I'd do a quick post about this Christmas. The kids raked it in, as usual. Santa didn't disappoint either. He must've gotten sick of hearing Ivy ask for the same electric sit down scooter for the past 3 years because he finally brought one! Ada got a jungle gym dome thing since she's always doing gymnastics in the house. Eve got a cute ride on car and all the kids thought that was pretty cool. The only thing that was hard is that these are all outdoor gifts and it's been snowing and freezing cold the last couple weeks. Maybe we'll get a nice day sometime soon.

One of my favorite things about our new house is the view from the backyard. Our old house had like 50 feet between our back door and the neighbor's door. I might be exaggerating, but it sure felt that way. Our new lot doesn't have anything behind us but open field. I think it's zoned for retail development, so I'm sure it will change. For now, I enjoy looking out the patio door every morning, usually catching a glimpse of a turkey or a pheasant. It just started getting green the past few days, and that instantly puts me in a better mood. I can't wait until our yard has grass instead of mud, which should happen in the next two weeks...if it stays dry.

Pardon the lame blog title, I get so tired of trying to think up something clever. I meant to post something about Ada's brace that she started wearing on March 16th, and here we are almost a month later and I'm just getting around to it. She was so excited to get the damn thing and I didn't have the heart to tell her that it wasn't all that exciting. Well she practically floated out of the doctor's office, thrilled to go show all of her friends her new plastic armor.

So it's March and I haven't posted since September....whoops! A few things have happened since that post. They did actually end up finishing our house, but not without further delay. At one point the builder said we'd possibly be in before Christmas. Well that came and went with no explanation. So we ended up moving in on January 12th, the coldest day of the season thus far. We had movers do itagain though, so I can't complain. So we're all moved in and have unpacked the necessities. Most of the remaining boxes will remain packed and untouched until we move again, most likely. We're looking forward to the Spring, so we can get the sprinklers, sod and patio done. It'll be nice not to have mud everywhere.
