There is no place like home!

We have moved in and I have been MIA from the blogging world trying to get organized!  Here is a picture tour of about half of the house...
Entry way
I have my apples out for fall!

Living room

I still need to make a pillow for the window seat!

Family room (James is getting a new TV this week because he says this one is embarrassing!)

Dining area


Kids playroom up in the loft area.

The playroom notice the Angry birds on the shelf! 

*Hopefully I will get the pictures hung in the bedroom's and pictures up soon!*

We bleed red!

The annual *Holy-war* was earlier this year and frankly not near as exciting as usual!  I actually really like a close game but if there has to be a blow out at least it was not the Utes getting beaten!  I was teasing Evan that I was kinda getting tired of cheering so much!  I hope next years games will be more exciting!
Dressed and ready!

Go Utes!!

James got Pressy a jersey with his name on the back!

As you can see this family is mostly blue!

Half Marathon!

After training all Summer long I finally achieved my goal of running a half marathon.  It was so much fun and I cannot wait to run another one!  A few things I learned while running are...
1. Take the GU they totally help, even when you don't think you need one at mile 9 come mile 10 you will kick yourself!
2.  Anywhere between 3-5 miles IS a short run!
3.  Get a good support network (the girls I ran with were so awesome and supportive!)
4.  ALWAYS carry toilet paper with you.... ummmm just trust me on this one!
5.  Drink lots of water you or else you will blow up like the state puff marshmallow!
6.  Anyone can learn to love running!!
Our pasta dinner before at Brick Oven!

The bus ride up

Trying to stay warm up at the top before the race!

DONE!!!  We have run over 100 miles together getting ready for this race!

Running sisters!

Our medals!

Can't wait for the next one!  I even finished 10 minutes under my goal time!

Little Soccer Star!!!

Dorothy is such a talented soccer player, during her first game she scored the first (and only) goal of the game!  She has control of the ball about 60% of the time her team has the ball and she only wants to play 'forward' since she like to score goals!  She will not be the goalie because she has to wait way too long for the other team to try and score (read: boring!)  She is very aggressive and super fast, I keep scratching my head because I am the least athletic person I know!  James was pretty good at soccer so I think she must have gotten it from him... and he is a fast runner (since it can run a mile a few minutes faster than I)  We are so proud of her and James keeps telling me to keep my *cheerleader* voice down since I am constantly loudly cheering my little all-star on!!!
Going to get the ball (this was like 30 seconds before her goal!)

Proud mommy and the little star!

Part of her fan club!

Getting Preston after the game since he heads to the park and plays for the entire game!  It's good because he can't wait till next year when he gets to play and tries to *play* with the team too!

We are almost there!

The house is suppose to be done this week (fingers crossed!)  We hopefully have our final walk through on Thursday and close on Monday (the date has changed a few times!)  The garage here is so full of boxes and stuff I am parking on the driveway and sick to death of driving to and from our new house/school/pre-school/soccer/you get the idea!  I am ready and excited for the move!
Kitchen (it is still waiting for the construction clean up!)

A closeup of the kitchen (sans oven since the tile is not all the way dry!)

Girls room (Evan calls it pepto-pink!)

Pressy's room (yes I used the same paint colors in the kids rooms, I really liked them!)

The stairway

The best part of the new house.... my walk in closet!!!

Entry way

The fireplace and windows that need blinds now!! (James is putting them up tonight!)

Front view (my grass is starting to grow!)

The back (the deck is finally in!)

*Now let's hope there are no more problems... like firing the tile guy mid-project or the wrong hardwood being put in.  Don't get me started I have stories and ulcers from building!  But I know it will all be over in a week, and totally worth it!*
