All In One Year

Has it really been that long since I last posted! I can't believe how fast this past year has gone, a lot sure has happened. Too much stuff to fill you all in on, but I thought maybe I would narrow it down to my top 5.

5. It was a very stressful time last April to August. Selling the house was a pain, buying a new house and moving.....not fun! It is a lot of work going through that process and I hope I don't have to do that again for a long time. But I am very happy we SOLD the townhouse.

Bye Bye!

4. During our first winter in the house we had a lot of rain and I think that we must be cursed with water problems, we had a leak in our foundation into the basement! This was due to poor grading in the backyard, all of the water ran against the house for who knows how long. This little hiccup lead us to our fist renovation of the new house....Taking out the deck, re-grading the backyard and laying a patio (it's still a working progress). I did a really bad job at taking pictures of the house when we moved in so I don't have to many before pictures.

There was two levels an upper deck and a lower deck. The lower deck had a huge ugly, ugly bar, which is pretty much taken down in this photo same with half the deck.

It's a working progress! We do have stairs on the deck now with a temporary railing. We are still building the gardens around the patio but that will be a project for the spring now.

3. Last June we found out I was pregnant! We were trying for awhile and finally it happened! J was super excited he was going to be a big brother!

2. My little man started school last September! He is growing so fast he is no longer my baby.

1. My little princess was born!!! I had a baby girl on February 13, 2013...6lbs 2oz 19 inches, tiny compared to J.. 9lbs 2 oz 21 inches.

It is a different experience having a girl! She is a lot different than J. She is a big mamma suck and LOVES her big brother! She can pick him out from across the room.

Well that is my top 5 for the year! My little princess has kept me pretty busy. Our new house has a lot of projects ahead and I can't wait to share them!
