Our House has Walls!

We went by our house yesterday to check in on the construction, and our house as walls!! They are doing a really great job. We met the construction superintendent for the house, and she's really nice. We're hoping for an end of May closing! I'll keep you posted. Yay!

Oh, and you know how some movies have gratuitous nudity? Well this blog will have gratuitous pictures of Gabriella (not nude of course!). You have been forewarned.

And here is one now.

Happy 79th Birthday Great-Grandpa Smith!

As promised, an update.

My Grandpa Smith's 79th birthday is fast approaching at the end of this month. Amazing! For a gift, I decided to do something fun, and having a little baby doll named Gabriella is always helpful in doing that!

I went to Hobby Lobby to get a birthday party hat to put on Gabriella. The idea was to take a picture of her that said Happy Birthday! and send that to him. An hour and half later, I leave Hobby Lobby with a load of scrapbooking materials, a couple of photo storage boxes, a picture frame, a couple of hair accessories, and a few other bits and bobs. Yup, no party hat! Typical. I did brave going back into the store and didn't get sucked in again.

Back home, I dressed up my little doll in her blue tutu (made by Aunt Kym) and party hat, made a little Happy Birthday sign and took a picture. Now most of you know that I have a amateur photographer friend, Kathryn, who takes Gabriella's pictures often - I am not ANYWHERE close to as good as her, but I think Great-Grandpa Smith will like it just fine.

The Hiatus is Over

I have been inspired by my friends who actually update their blog to take up my pen again so to speak. I can't promise any of it will be worth reading but it'll be here for those who might want to, but I am giving you a fair warning now, most of it will be showing off my super adorable little girl! The rest of it will probably be my silly musings, and if you're lucky I'll actually throw in some life updates!

So for the quick catch up of the past year, for those of you who have been living under a rock or I am horribly out of touch with: I got pregnant in February of last year, had our adorable little girl in October, and we moved back to the States. We are in the process of buying our first house right now, which is exciting.

Well, stay tuned, and in the meantime here's a pic of the aforementioned adorable baby girl!
