getting settled

so people ask, "feeling settled?"

that all depends.

on whether or not we are counting the garage.

because as far as the house goes, its feeling rather home-y around here. and i love it. its cozy. we've unpacked and semi-organized the basics. minus ella's favorite white blanket but we'll find that "one of these days." (at least that's what i keep telling her.)

we are settling into a routine. we've found the nearby parks and nature walks.
we're in the process of finding a church.

ella's made friends.
bennett's found bugs.and dirt.
and mason?

well, he's just doing his thing...

(not to worry. that's just mud. not dog poop or anything crazy.)

life is good. but that doesn't mean we don't miss you dear arizona friends and family. come visit soon.

except, well... we may not exactly have a bed for you. i mean, we don't even have enough beds for us.

don't feel too bad for them. they actually fight over who gets to sleep on the floor.

they think its some sort of bunk bed or something. who am i to rob them of their fun by purchasing a mattress?

Really, beds are over-rated. That looks like a very cozy spot...

The pictures of Mason are cracking me up! That's just how Gabe was at that age. Take heart, he got way better. At the age of 5. Which means you just have to get through the next (4) years, right?

Um, I'll be sending you some wine...

Oh I love your blog and your attitude about life. It's so much fun to read, it's real, it's cute, and it makes me laugh. Just the way to start my day. And if Mason ever does by chance eat poop he and Emery can compare notes :)
