Light at the end of the tunnel

Finally, I see the light. After waiting 8 months for our new home to be started it finally has arrived. Ever since our house hunting trip we made back in February we decided to build a new home through D.R. Horton here in Buckeye, AZ. The market here in the Phoenix metroplex is nothing like I have ever seen. Believe it or not, this was the cheaper choice than buying an existing home. Nor, is the building out in the West Valley even crazier. Basically, we were told by our salesperson that they would finish building in Oct - Nov. then we could move in...not such the case. They started building in Oct- Nov. It's been a long summer and now we can actually see the house and it's expected to be done at the end of February - yeah! I can't wait to setup the girls room and my first scrap/sewing room. It's going to be a beautiful thing.

Stay tuned for more pics as the light at the end of the tunnel gets brighter.

NO clothes...Let's stay!
Well, at least for a few days. After meeting some friends at DFW airport during our layover back from Alabama - my sweet, sweet friend talked my husband into changing mine and the girls flight to stay in Dallas instead of continuing on to Phoenix. To both of our excitement, my wonderful husband John made a few calls and it was a done deal!

One pit stop to Chick-Fil-A in Grapevine, ended up being a three night stay with the Storch's - yahoo! With NO luggage except for a backpack stuffed with diapers and formula we were thrilled to be back in Dallas.

Now for the BIG plans while we were in town...the first stop, Hickory Creek WAL-MART - of course! (okay, so we needed some clothes!). Then we're off to, let's see awwww Chuck-E-Cheese in Denton. Next, El Chico and the soft play area at the mall (we needed some sort of Tex-Mex). Then, shopping at all the new stores on Loop 288! Our final stop was on Thursday to Alderbrook Drive where Jay and Mary so graciously opened their home for us at the last minute.

Finally, I wanted to say thanks to everyone who met us at CEC, and stopped by on Thursday to see us. We had so much fun seeing all of our old pals - ya'll mean so much to us. We sure miss Denton and all that is there, we can't wait to come back and visit again, hopefully with our clothes next time!

We Love You Angie!
Last Wednesday we received some scary news about my sister-in-law Angie. After performing a MRI the doctors found an Aneurysm behind her left eye. Since surgery was going to be scheduled soon John, I and the girls flew to Alabama the next day. We were somewhat relieved to find out that the surgery was canceled and that the doctors wanted to run some more tests. Currently, she is feeling a little better and is being referred to a doctor here in the Phoenix area. Even though this is not the conditions we would have like to gone and visit for, we had a great time seeing her and the rest of the family. Please pray for Angie that she will have a calm heart, her symptoms will go away and that the doctors have the knowledge and skills to do the right treatment.

"A" - we are so glad we got to come see you and we are praying for you everyday! We love you!

Trick or Treat - oh so sweet

Well, Halloween was a bang last night. Victoria was Strawberry Shortcake (even though she screamed and cried because she wanted her spots off her face). Claire was a sweet little flower. After cruising around Sundance with some friends of ours we got a little lost on the way home. But, one friendly family passing out candy gave us a little direction and we made it home. Also, lots of people went all out with decorations, music and costumes but no one had the smoke-filled garage with scary masks and fog horns like we had at our house last year. Maybe when we move in the new house we can start that tradition up again. Needless to say, we have lots of candy now and still no dentist!
