House Pics

WARNING! I am still not unpacked... and I don't usually keep this messy of a house!

These Pics are for Sid's request!


Front of the house * notice the tiny lawn to mow!!!



Tanner and Tate's Room! Love the STAR Quilts!

Tyce's room.... Yeah, he's been sleeping through the night!

Ryan's decorative touch!
Love the little succulants
and the thrift store mugs

The Bonus room... One side has all my bead mess and the other side has the TV for the Boys

The cleanest room in the house! Thanks to RYAN

Notice our new table Sid ...Yeah thanks (Craig's List)

The Office still looks like this... can't seem to finish unpacking these boxes

we got rid of Ryan's big desk and file cabinets

and there was a closet in the old office

so we have no where for any of this to go!


My Room... still messy!

The Master Bathroom

I really like this house... it's been nice having the upstairs to ship the boys too....I like that the Master Bedroom is downstairs and I love the HUGE kitchen....

We are just renting for a few months until we decide which area we want to live in and if we really want to be in Las Vegas... who knows we might move back to Farr West!

The Good, the bad and the sad!

Well I've been in Vegas for about a week now...

GOOD

I love having Ryan home every night!!!!!!!!!
I really like the house layout... feels like we have more room... There is a bonus room upstairs and where the wet bar is I have my beads spread out and not in anyone's way... Before it was my dining room table and always picking them up before we could eat on table...
I love the area of Vegas we live in... SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS! We have a really cute park close to the house...
I am so glad that Tanner and Tate have each other to play with, they have played really well together...
The yard was so small I mowed it in 10 minutes both front and back with a push mower Ryan go on Craigs list... (guess he's going green)

BAD

I hate all the MEDIANS... And The traffic sucks...
Can't seem to finish unpacking the last few boxes
Kids can't ride their bikes up and down the street like at home...
This town is not KID friendly!...

SAD

KIDS miss all their little neighborhood friends...
I MISS all my NEIGHBORHOOD FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!
The neighbors are NOT friendly... Miss you guys so MUCH!
Miss my family... Especially Heidi... Miss those weekly visits and jaunts to the craft store!

Tate Tagged


6 Things you should know about TATE


1. He is only 3 1/2 but talks like he is about 12... He hummed the tune to Happy Birthday on his first birthday!... He has always been good at talking...


2. Tate LOVES Horses! I really wanted to name him Stetson. But Ryan thought it would be to cowboyish... If I had only known what a little cowboy he would be... I would have! Tate loves his Wranglers and looks so GREAT in them....


3. Tate loves to Sing... He loves to just pretend and make up songs! It is the cutest thing ever!


4. Tate has the easiest going personality ever! He is so easy to be around and everyone falls in love with him. He is the only morning person in our family and the least stubborn.. He doesn't have any of our bad traits! Not sure where he came from. Tate is my CALM after the STORM!


5. Tate is a sugar BUG!... He loves anything sweet... He was super easy to potty train, we told him if he used the potty he could get a piece of candy... We started a few days before easter... And when he got his easter basket we only let him have candy if he went potty! He was trained that day!


6. Tate loves his brothers... He wants to be as big as Tanner, but he takes extra good care of Tyce and is always being so sweet with him! Tate is a sweetheart and all of you who know him will totally agree!

TANNER was TAGGED


Tanner was tagged by Justin and Jesse...........Here are six things you should know about Tanner!


1. Tanner loves bugs, frogs, and all sorts of creepy things. He has been begging me to get him a scorpion! But I didn't want that loose in my house. They have been finding cockroaches down here in the yard and they think it is the coolest thing ever! Who knows maybe he'll find a scorpion down here in the desert.


2. Tanner is very Artistic.... He draws the cutest things and loves to make pictures for everyone!


3. Tanner loves to give hugs and is such a loving little boy. He had a primary teacher who was not a touch person. He cured her of that in a couple of weeks.


4. Tanner loves puzzles! In fact he has been working on one for the last 3 hours... I forgot how much he loves them.


5. Tanner is very stubborn... He got a double dose of it from me and Ryan.


6. Tanner is super friendly!... He loves to strike up conversations with anyone and everyone! HUM... wonder where he got that trait????????????

Vegas Trip

Wow! Quick but productive trip! We found a place to stay in two weeks! I can hardly believe it... So I need to get packing instead of surfing the internet! Here's a couple of shots from trip... Didn't take many!

We got an offer on our house on Wednesday! And they want to close on May 20th. So, the timing worked out good so we could look for a place.

Tate loves to Sing!



Tate is hilarious... Don't worry if you don't understand the words... He just makes stuff up! But I just love his little dance at the beginning and his hand on his chest! Sorry, video not the best.. just testing the new camera...but I had to share!
