What's New

I know that it has been forever since I have posted but that is life. I have been trying to get to posting all week but by the time the kids are in bed I have been exhausted so I head to bed as well. First off let me just say that both of the girls are taking a nap and it is 2:00 p.m. I am so happy. I cannot remember the last time that that has happened. I think I will take a nap after I finish this post.
Well, the one thing that has been taking my time is that we have put our house up for sale. Really though I guess I should be honest and say that it hasn't taken that much time for me. I went off to scrapfest so Wade packed the boxes and I hired a cleaning lady to come deep clean the house. (I reccomend everybody hire one once a year for the deep cleaning it is amazing) So really I haven't done a ton but it has occupied some time. Luckily we have kind of been de-cluttering throughout the year so getting it ready to put on the market hasn't been a horrible task. We have put some things in a storage unit and that has made our house look nice. We want to stay in the same area that we live preferably the same ward. It is just such a good time to buy that we don't want to miss the opportunity of getting into something a little larger but selling a house is so hard in this market. We will just see what happens. We are fully prepared for it to take a long time but hoping it will be sooner rather than later. It is just a crazy market right now. Now when I leave my house it takes another 20 minutes on top of the 2 hours it takes to get us dressed and fed to get out of house because I starighten it up for the people that never come through my house. I know though the one time I don't pick up the house will be the time that somebody comes but I am kind of tempted to do that because then we'd actually get someone through it. I will keep you posted on the selling process.
Last weekend Elsa and I went to scrapfest. Since I am not a true scrapbooker, I like the pre-made ones that I just glue the picture on the page, I don't really take pictures either. If you want to see pictures you will have link to Sarah or Tristen's page. It was nice to get away. It turned out my friend Kara form my ward was going so I drove up with her and that was fun. It was nice to have a day to just work on Elsa's book without a lot of interruptions. Elsa was pretty good. She slept horrible Saturday night but I didn't have anything to do Sunday so it was fine. I am looking forward to next year when I don't have any kids. Then I can stay up late and get everything done I want to.
That is really all that is going on with us.

Good luck guys with selling your house the market is tough everywhere. Sounds like a good time at scrapfest.

Scrapfest was a good time! I am sooooo insanely jealous that you have both of your kids asleep taking naps today! I even tried to get Nathan to lay down and that didn't happen! Hope you enjoy your nap!

Scrapfest sounds like fun! Also, I didn't know you were trying to sell you house. I am glad you want to stay in the same ward.
