Thanks to my sweet Hubby!

Sometimes I fail to brag on Mark and his hardwork on our house. If I do it's usually overshadowed by my whining or fussing about how slow it's all going. We closed on our house 2 years ago today. We were hoping to be mostly finished with it at this point, but somedays it's like we're just getting started good. That's ok though. We've had a few changes in plans and the Lord has blessed us in much larger ways. We found out less than a week after closing on the house we were pregnant. New house, new baby, right? Truth be known, we wouldn't have gone through with such a house had we known. In retrospect I can't imagine this place without Asher. He's made this house a home! There's a lot of hugs, kisses, and laughs going on within these walls.

As far as the actual work, Mark has done it all himself. He amazes me. However, he can't finish the foyer until we get our new front door. It got ordered this week and will be installed within about a month. I'm excited because it's one step closer to helping the exterior and boy does it need some help:)

Celery Anyone?

The other night I was eating some celery for an evening snack, and Asher decided he wanted some too. I didn't think he would like it or actually be able to eat it since it's so hard and tough. He did though. I honestly don't think he liked it that much. He just like the novelty behind eating something that texture. Who thought eating celery could be fun or cute? It's so great to watch him experience new things!
