Our house

Well we are loving our house, but we've put off posting pictures of it being optimistic that we'd get our bare walls decorated, but it's looked the same for the last month and probably will for the next little while so we decided to cave to the requests for pictures. Here it is!

Our house

Our Yard

Living Room

Kitchen and dining room. You can also see our sun room, which we converted into an office for Chels.

Hallway to 3 bedrooms and bathrooms.

Guest room. This will be ready by the time you all come visit us.

You will notice a room is missing. We do not have pictures of Weston's room yet, because he has not painted it yet.

Sadly, it was nothing like the musical. However, with us only living 4 hours from Chicago, we thought, "Why not visit the Thomas family?" We had so much fun, they may have a hard time keeping us away from now on.

Andy and Alex live in a great condo right on the Navy Pier waterfront, really the best location in the city. We had a great time touring the city, eating, and hanging out. It was also good to have some private lessons on how to use our new camera. Here are some pics-

Nothing cooler than two lurps doing a running high 5 at the bean

More fun

Showers of fun

Thanks to my great cousin, friends, and family, I was able to head to Utah and Colorado last weekend for some shower fun. I had a blast and we are so grateful for all the support and great presents. As you can see from our picture, we got tons of great things, I could barely get it all home. (Don't mind the lime green walls in the baby room, those will be painted soon.)

This picture is of me and my sister in law Jessie after my shower in Utah. If she looks like she is going to burst its because she did. She and Eric's brother Jay had their baby Hannah today, how fun! And speaking of big women, Eric has gained 12lbs in the month we have been here. For a guy who has never been able to gain weight, we are pretty proud!
