Here is the bad news first. The people that owned the house before us left us a treat :) A garage FULL of stuff HELLO! Sadly the first part of our move was moving all of there stuff out of the house and into the garage. Then we moved our things into the house. This stuff is not all junk too, like we have sewing machines, 10 suit cases, 2 TV's and much much more.


We are starting the viewing (not on purpose) in the laundry room on the main entry floor.
the bathroom right next to the laundry room.
a little common area where you can go to the garage, backyard or down the hall to the kids rooms.

Up stairs to the Kitchen, dinning, living room and master bedroom

Cole's Bay

This morning we went for a drive and ended up in Cole's Bay parking lot. I got Owen out and by the time he had finished jumping in 3 or 4 puddles I realized I forgot the stroller. I figured I was tough enough to walk down the path to the water with Lyla in her car seat, and thankfully I was :)
When we got back to the car and took Owen's boots off, so we could change his pants. I wasn't expecting the large amount of water that dumped out of his boots. The poor guy walked all the way back to the car in wet pants a liter of water in each boot :)

Lyla 9 weeks old

These past 9 weeks have been very interesting :) Lyla is a great little eater. She eats every 4 hours and does 1 long stretch between feeds, either during the day or night. She is my little angel baby. Owen loves his little sister and today he was running around with his horse "Nay". He brought Nay over to give Lyla a kiss. Well she got a kiss alright and a bit of a bang to the head. This was the first time Owen had made Lyla cry. He had a very sad look on his face. I hope he learned something :)

The House

Here is Fred in our backyard. Mike is taking this picture from the back fence. The first project is putting up a fence behind Fred.

The backyard from the house looking out. It's 90 "paces" from the house to the back fence. Mike is thinking about bring in all the machines and pulling a lot of dirt out, so the yard will be level. It's just the beginning of the ideas : )
There it is! We are so EXCITED!!! Moving date April 28th!
