Sweet Dewey

Today I was cleaning the kitchen while listening to an audio-book. Sweet little Dewey came and tapped me on the leg (like he always does so sweetly when he needs something) and extended his arms. I picked him up expecting for him to plead for me to do his bidding. But no. He hugged me sweetly and patted me on the back. I loved it so much especially the pat. Then he broke away and I thought, "OK here it comes. He's going to ask me for crackers or water..." But no. Instead he gave me a sweet Dewey-kiss on the lips and then another hug. I felt so loved.

Face Painting Birthday Party

We went to their friend, Kensington's birthday today! It was so much fun! Complete with face painting. The girls and I picked butterflies and Heber picked Captain America. He thought he looked like a ghost after he wiped it off. They liked all the candy and playing at the park. They liked Kensigngton got lots of presents.

Dream House

Last summer I painted a picture of my dream house. Just to clarify, I painted this picture BEFORE I ever set eyes on our current home.

We were on the prowl for a home and I definitely wanted a home I would LOVE. So I painted my dream house and the search for our home continued. It became apparent that getting any home, much less the one I loved, was going to be difficult. We made three offers on homes a few thousand above asking prince and they were all out bid. In hind sight I am SO grateful that we did not get those because lastly we came across our dream house. It fit all our criteria (square footage, proximity, yard size, etc.). 

We bought it up and haven't looked back since. The last 7 months since we moved in have been full of home projects, firstly being painting the outside of our home. I love that my prayers and dream have come true.! I LOVE our new home!!!
