I WILL POST A PICTURE ON SATURDAY. We just signed the mortgage papers today! This is a longtime dream for me to own a house and I am so excited b/c it is a home that has MOST all of the things I wanted in a house!!!!!!!!!! It is a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom with a fenced in yard. It was built in 2002, I can't think of everything I love about it right now, b/c I am so excited! But I will write more when I get the pictures!!!!

Hopefully we will close on the 22nd of June and all will go smoothly from here.

my little boy pouts

This is how it starts....the discouraged arm fold....

Then he throws his folded arms up and scowls- with brow furrowed....and finally turns away and tries to give me the cold shoulder. He will usually scream something at this "your hurting me" or the ever popular "NO!" I struggle with his overwhelming emotions on most days...but when he does this, I have to turn my head away and laugh.

my friday night

Michael took Reese on the father and son campout Friday night. Reese was so excited! It was at the church camp site about 2 hours away. They rode in a canoe and set up our little tent. They had fun! Reese had some emotional issues that he couldn't control (ie: crying) about, that was a rough patch for Michael. But they made it home VERY early Saturday morning:)

this is Reese in front of the tent....and then Reese dealing w/his issues at 2am.

So, me and the girls had a GIRL party!! I took Audrey and Sadie to the store and we picked some treats to pig out on. We painted our finger and toe nails and we watched Swiss Family Robinson. (Audrey's pick)
It was really fun! Audrey was pretty sad that dad was going camping with just Reese, but when I said that she could pick out her own treat, she got over it.

my search of OK Go - Here It Goes Again

i like this band. 70%music, 25%dancing 5%pure hilarity that these weird men have choreographed such a great routine!

my trip to the O.C.

(AAHHHH, back to blogging!)
Oh, wow...this was such a fun trip! We did so many things and the kids had such a great time.
The Huff's were amazing! My favorite part of the trip (besides the beach) was not having to cook or clean and having lots of help for the kids. The traveling wasn't too bad considering that we left at 2a.m. Reese had some issues a few times at the airport and on the plane that got us a few looks. But he was trying hard not to scream (I think). Coming back, he thought that the plane was going to fall out of the sky.
We went and saw a church production of Beauty and the Beast, we went to Disneyland, we went to the beach, we swam, we was so fun and relaxing! Basically I took about 300+ pictures and I am a little overwhelmed with weeding through them right now. So here are a VERY few that I uploaded.

The beach was my favorite part of the trip! The kids just LOVED IT! They could run free and clear. They found shells and dug in the sand. Audrey got in the water and splashed around but Reese was content digging.

The Huff's were such greats hosts and made the trip just GREAT! I am lucky to have such thoughtful in-laws!

Disneyland of course was amazing! We got there at opening and stayed until the parade. By the end of the day, the kids were basically being dragged to rides and they weren't enjoying it as much. They loved the parade! WE DID EVERYTHING THERE (that the kids could go on).

The kids really loved the toon-town and walking thru the little Mickey and Minnie houses. Audrey loved the Goofy roller coaster.

My favorite part was seeing the princesses. They were so beautiful and all talked with a really high pitched voice. They were so cute and graceful. (i totally look preg-ers in the Arial photo. YIKES!!!!)

Audrey and Reese really loved the dumbo ride and the teacup ride. They liked anything that was fast. Audrey said her favorite ride was the its a small world. There was just so much to do and look at, that they both got overwhelmed at times. The lines weren't bad at all.
We did other things too that were great, but this is the seriously abridged version of our trip. It was wonderful. I wasn't quite ready to come back, (neither were the kids) but when we got back here, the weather was beautiful. So that helped out a lot.
I am sure that I am going to post many more favorite photos of the trip, but I just wanted to start. I have missed reading every one's blogs and I am ready to get back into the swing of things!
