ItS aBoUt TiMe!

I finally got my car! I am so excited to be mobile again. I never thought I would get a Subaru, but the more I drive it, the more I love it! Its the perfect car for us, it had low miles, it seats 7, has 4 wheel drive, heated seats {a must!} and was in our price range. So this now means that I am open again for lunch dates, play dates, and shopping call me!!!

The inevitable...

Thats right, we have listed our house for sale! This was really such a last minute decision, but I think it is the right one. We originally were just going to refinance, but our loan agency called us on Monday and said we needed to sign the papers today or we lose our rate. So Eric went in there and found that it was going to cost us about twice as much as we thought. We either had to decide at that point if we wanted to stay here for another 2-3 years or move. Those were our ONLY options! Eric signed the papers for the refinance and they told us we have until Tuesday morning to back out. All night we talked about it and didn't feel good about the refinance and literally minutes before our deadline, we backed out! Just a few hours later we listed our home and will now just play the waiting game. I am really nervous about the whole thing and I think we are taking a huge risk, but I know somehow it will all turn out. I am so sad at the thought of leaving my neighborhood and my home of 4 years! I have so many great memories here and have made lifelong friends.

...I secretly hope it doesn't sell, to spare myself the grief of moving;) Just kidding, now I have jinxed myself!!

Just for fun I made a blog with pictures to help sell our house. Here is a link to it if you know anyone who would be interested!

Hunter's B{Day}

On Saturday it was Hunter's 6th Birthday! His party was held up at the Discovery Museum at the Gateway which was so fun for all of the kids. When we got there we had lunch in the Birthday room where they had a staff member come and entertain the kids. Then we got to spend the day exploring and playing until their little hearts couldn't take it anymore!

[Hunter loved Tatum's letter to him]

[They had a bunch of cute dress up clothes, Tatum liked the Fireman]

[They all got a little messy!]

Tatum is [ 2 ]

On Friday Tatum turned 2! I can't believe that my baby is now 2! The time has just flown by. He is so grown up and changes more and more everyday. We took him to the Doctor for his 2 year check and the Doctor could not believe how well he was talking. Tatum can literally say anything and can talk in full sentences now. Its so weird that I can fully communicate with him now.

I took Tatum to McDonalds for lunch and when we came back there were some balloons and chocolates on our door step. My Parents are in California and sent these just for Tatum. He loved playing with the balloons and he went to town on the chocolates. He took a bite out of everyone and put it back. I guess he can do what he wants to on his Birthday!

That night we took him and his cousins to Chuck-e-cheese. They had so much fun and played until they were too tired to play anymore!

Then on Saturday night we had a party with Friends and Family. Tatum is so lucky to have so many people who love him. He got so many presents, including his first computer and a new bike! He was so excited to open his presents:

You know the night was a success when your house looks like this...

What was supposed to be a laid back Birthday suddenly turned into a 2 day event. Oh well they are only 2 once right??
