Before And After



(great pictures, i know)

we finally found one after 6 weeks of looking!
so glad to have that out of the way, and i can't tell you how nice it is to have some ROOM. and doors that open for me. and some peace and quiet while the kids watch a movie.
and all kinds of music- the previous owners had the hard drive loaded already.
norm- our salesman and dave's best friend for the last 6 wks- told me some of it might need to be deleted for lack of family friendliness. i kinda laughed at the time, but he wasn't kidding. i'm not old enough for some of what's on there. but most of it is a lot of fun.

so, tomorrow is july 23- our 9 year anniversary. makes me feel really old to think we've been married for 9 years.
we usually try to get away for a night or two to celebrate, but this year we are just aiming for dinner alone. we've got dave's sister maria watching our 3 oldest, and my brother justin and his wife katie are taking the baby.

we won't even know what to do with ourselves- a quiet dinner with no one to feed but me- no repeated trips to the bathroom- no spills or crying- no one trying to climb on or under the table- and no one running through the restaraunt naked.....
yep, that one happened once.
shaeya was 2, and we let her sit on the floor by our table for awhile not realizing she was quietly removing every bit of clothing. til out of the corner of my eye i saw a child running away. i looked down where shaeya had been sitting, and only her clothes were there.
everyone ELSE in the restaraunt thought it was really funny. they called her the "chili's streaker."

so here's to 9 years.
hoping the next 9 will be just as crazy and wonderful.

i know these are not related in any way to this post, but she's just so stinkin' cute i had to share them.
