Making progress

On the house, that is. Chris rented an excavator last weekend and dug the hole next to our old front door for the new foundation. Tomorrow the concrete guys are coming to pour it. This weekend I'm taking the kids to my parents again and Chris and his friend Rob are going to side the front of the house and frame in the new bathroom. I'm so excited!! We really need to get the outside of the house closed up before fall really comes. I have this picture in my head of what our house will look like for Christmas this year, with the new family room and in my head it's pretty great. I'm sure the finished product will be just as good as my imagination is seeing it! Chris is a perfectionist, and although it sometimes makes things take a little longer than I'd like, the end result is always so nice! Chris has had the camera in his car for weeks so I haven't taken any pictures, but hopefully I'll remember to get it from him soon.
Not much else going on around here. Just enjoying the end of summer.

Why I had kids

Alexis tells me she loves me all the time. It is so sweet. Lately her favorite thing is to tell me "Mom, I love you so much. I couldn't love you any more even if I tried." Melts my heart everytime. Luke has been saying I love you also, but mostly only when we say it first. Yesterday we were just sitting in the living room and out of the blue he said "Mommy, I love you so much." So, my rough and tumble boy does have a soft spot! I guess he takes after his daddy. Tough on the outside, but a softie on the inside.
Uh oh, I just noticed Luke is awfully quiet and I can see him sitting up on his dresser. I better go see what's up!
