The future home of The Circus!

Here it is!  The future home of The Circus!!!
(There will be no striped tents or other circus items used in the construction of the house.  I'm holding out for turrets...) 

 Nice views

 Mostly flat.  (That's harder to find in our town than you might think...)

Some funny boys mugging for the camera.  (Included in the purchase price)  James loves his Uncle Matt!

A champagne toast!*  (Because that's the last champagne we'll be able to afford for a long time.)

*Benjamin wanted to know if we were REALLY going to have champagne on our toast...

Tomorrow we will begin clearing brush where the house will sit.   Although we are excited to begin, we will probably wait until late morning to start.  We do want the neighbors to like us, after all.  Chainsaws at 7am might ruin our reputation more than a little bit.   More updates to follow - hopefully starring large machines and enormous holes in the ground. 

 Hooray!  What an exciting adventure.  We are blessed!!!

Bad blogger.

Pictures uploaded.  Trying to figure out video. 

Sam played his first violin recital.  Precious.  :)

We have something big and wonderful happening next Friday.  Prayers appreciated.

More miracles in the making.  Can't wait. 

We are blessed so much more than we deserve.  Thankful.

Life is busy.

Life is good.

Back soon with more words and more photos.  The kids keep getting cuter, life keeps getting better. 

Talk to you all soon!

A new dress!

Because every girl should have a twirly dress with clippies to match! 

I think she likes it!!!

Now, if summer would just hurry up so we could wear the dress somewhere BESIDES inside the house!!!


This is the way we eat Peeps...

 We stuff 'em...

 We eat way too many...

 We save some for later...

 We try to be cool like the big boys...

 We nibble...

 We decide not to eat them...

 We let them ponder their grisly fates...

 as we bite off little bits of them...

and enjoy.
