New Town Rundown

My MIL requested a rundown of what we've been up to. So here it is:

Day 1: Garage shelves. Notice all that canned food? Yeah, back to renting means back to little kitchens with 2 1/2 cupboards.

Day 2: Installing the peephole. We've been paycheck-less for so long that we both had to stare at the Home Depot peephole price for a good 5 minutes. $10.97. Then I reminded Rusty of how many home teaching visits we could avoid if we had one. That did the trick.

Weekend 1: Lots of hiking!

Weekend 2: House hunting. This was the only house in our price range (which has been grossly scewed because of the current Boise market). It was a dump. However, I wouldn't mind spending $170K on that tree in front of the house.

And on that rickety old fence that I totally fell in love with.

And the tire swing.
Day 15: PAYDAY!! KA-CHING! $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

The kids are adjusting well. They love the rain and the chilly mornings and evenings.

They both love our window sills.

And of course...the beach!

It's nice to have a beach again.

I wish I could transport you here every time I want to take a picture of my kids. Your pictures are SO GOOD! I would fall in love with that house, too, dump or not.

They are so cute!!

Cole said...

It SO worth the tree!

Linda Terry said...

you buy a house like that and you'll not only get home teachers and their kids visiting but yours will be the designated yard for ward parties.

Tory said...

I miss you and I want to come visit! Love the pictures!

Alesha Evans said...

hey! do you live in the vicinity of Washington or some far away place that I could never visit you since I am now back in Washington????

Merri Ann said...

But you two are very talented anad the house wouldn't stay looking like a dump. I like what I see in the pictures.
