House progress

It's really looking like a house from the outside now! They dry walled last week and will be finishing up priming the walls this week. We have a closing date of November 7th! I guess we might want to start packing soon!!

Take me out to the ball game

We go to the YMCA (gym) every day and are extremely lucky to have a double A baseball team here! The Lake Erie Crusher stadium is about 100 yards from the YMCA and totally kid friendly. This morning they had an 11:05 game (and awesome weather) so I decided to take the boys to a game. They do have regular stadium seating but also $6 "lawn seats" on a big hill in the outfield. This is perfect for kids who have a hard time sitting in a seat, aisle etc. (also great practice for a Cleveland Indians game)! We had a blast!!

Bennett's hair was out of control. There was a small clump of it that was 3 inches longer than the rest and I could literally tuck behind his ear. I was asked how old my "daughter" was at least twice a week. I decided to just give him a trim...

He still has plenty to spare!

I'm baaaaack!

I know it's been a while. I've been going back and forth on whether I wanted to blog again--honestly, I just couldn't find the time with two kids. When I do have a quiet moment at night and finally have the remote back to myself (and off Disney Jr) I just want to catch up on our dvr. But I also feel like this is a good way to "scrapbook" my life in a way. So I will be trying to blog more!

Ok to catch you upon what has been up with us!

We are in the process of building this home! I'm certain there will be weekly updates on this. We are hoping to be in there in mid-October! Right in time to go trick or treating in their new neighborhood!!!!

Dominic and Bennett (6 months) are keeping me on my toes! These boys love each other so much I want to burst watching them. Bennett's face lights up when he sees his big brother and Dominic showers him with kisses and tickles!

Lou and I are doing great, this Saturday we will celebrate 5 wonderful years of marriage!!

That's all for now, the "Bachelorette" finale, "Big Brother", "RHNJ" and "True Blood" are waiting for me! :) <--- um told you dvr takes up my evening lol!
