Well, it's been a whole week since our first night at our new house and I am loving it! The hardest thing is to let the kids be kids and not be so panicked when I hear noises that I think the kids are doing something to the walls or floor or anything that might cost money. I'm definitely not as laxed in my parenting as what food's allowed where and where the toys should end up as when we were at my parents (sorry mom). It's great to have the kids in their own beds again--less fighting at night that so-and-so touched them--not that my sisters and I ever did stuff like that! I was always waiting for one of them to yell, "Mom, Porter's out of bed!!" I haven't gotten all the boxes emptied but I think I'm only down to three left. Stuff that I just don't know where to put it. And of course there are pictures to be hung on the walls. It probably wouldn't suprise you to know the only thing hung on the wall is Todd's buck. I had to take a picture for some reason. Someday we'll get to the landscaping but for now I'm a happy girl.

Pure and trusting. You are a gentle soul who can get along with just about anyone. Everyone you meet instantly falls in love with you. How can they resist? You have a pure, lovable nature that's irresistable. Just don't trust everyone who comes across your path.
Which Disney Princess Are You?I'm nothing all that extraordinary like Pocahontas but we can't all be wild girls running through the forest with the wind in our long hair, Tiff. I'll settle for being with the 7 dwarfs. Just glad I didn't marry one of them.

This classic video is of my oldest, wisest sister Trudi (Gerti) climbing the rock wall at the new Rec. Center. She's so brave and sets such a good example to the rest of us how determination...and a little kicking and screaming...get you to where you want to go in life.
This is Tiff's spectacular climb to the top. She acts and looks like a 26 year old. Just ask the Dead Sea Salt dude in the mall. She must take good care of her skin because she's not lazy. Rock on Tiff!
There's talk of getting the surveillance footage at the rec. center so we can get a good work out on our abs from all the laughter it may create. I don't have pictures of our BB Gun Basket Swap Fun, Playing "your a REAL dumb dumb", shopping for hours, going to lunch, playing Sing Star, or pay back at our Nephews house so I'll b sure to post them when/if I get them.
