My Niece and Nephew

Ok so I have not posted their pictures in while so I am being the good Aunt and doing it now. I adore these two and could not love them anymore if they were my own. My new house has kept me away a but this year but as soon as it is done there will be some great sleep overs trust me!

My newphew is potty trained at 2. He decided on his own he did not want to want to wear diapers anymore. My SIL was great to pick up on his clues that he was done with diapers. It is so funny to see him running around in his underwear. Buz Lightyear AWAY!
Josie was Wonder Woman for Halloween this year! She love her cape and boots!

Surprise Baby Shower

I got an invite to my best friend's baby sister's baby shower recently. Krissy holds a special place in my heart because I remember when she was in he her Mom's womb and when my best friend told me she was born. I also remember the fun 6 months we spent living together when she was 13 and alone living her her Mom's house in Plano. I was 23 and had fun playing big sister/friend/room mate to her and her friends. I got a taste for what it is like to raise a 13 year for a few months. We had fin together and I cherish those months we spent together. Krissy is married and now living in Scottsdale Arizona. Another wonderful friend to spend time with the next time I am out that way. Hey Kim she wants some pregnancy pictures taken and I am sending her your way! She is having a baby boy! Her shower was very fun and I do not think I have ever seen anyone so emotional and truly surprised at a party before in my life! Her mom is one tricky mom! Flying her out to Texas for a shower and her none the wiser! I can't believe she is going to be a mother! I am so happy for her! I can't wait to see little Dominic!

Future Living Arrangements

I have been a very poor blogger. But a friend of mine encouraged me to post pics of my soon to be new living domicle on here so here it goes. After months of delays 3 to be exact, my house i well under way. I can hardly believe . People ask me everday if I am excited and to be honest I am scared spitless. Petrfied would be more like it. Buying a used car has always been a huge decison for me and now I am buying a new HOUSE! Am I crazy?? I do not know but ask me in 2 months and I will let you know.

My SIL told me the other day I have gotten forgetfull ever since I stared building this new house and she is right! It all seems a blur. I went through many frustrating discussions with the VP of marketing and sales for my builder. After so many delays and being told so many different things why it was being delayed, I did manage to get the full sprinkler system thrown in for free. The one upgrade splurge I wanted but could not afford. So I guess the delays were well worth it. But geez louise the frustration alone was worth the $3000 sprinkler system.

So I am taking photos of my house in progress.
It is a small home but it will be all mine and I can hardly wait!
