Unpack Fast!

So if it seems like we love living in's because we do! My mom came up and helped us unpack and get all settled. Really she played with Caroline so I could get everything unpacked and organized. We are feeling more settled than ever before and making our home really feel like home.

Caroline spent the whole week glued to my mom's hip. She even camped out during rest time and slumber partied in the same room with my mom. At first my mom remarked that our extra bedroom was bigger--and then she said "it gets small really fast when Caroline brings in her pillow bed, books, and animals". So the guest room got really cozy, we shall call it.

So our back porch was like Lord of the WASPS. They were everywhere and would attack if we came close. $40 dollars of wasp spray later they were back. We contacted our management company and within 45 minutes the wasps were gone and taken care of. Never taking fantastic service for granted and we are definitely adjusting well to people taking care of business the way it should be! Hooray for a backyard that is waspless.

We got a washer and dryer! AND I'm a smidge too short to read all the socks at the bottom. But when I can wash huge loads without a problem and dry them no's an easy fix. Washer and dryer bliss! When we moved in we were surprised with a vintage set from the 80's that belonged with the house. However, we asked three times double checking that the fridge stayed with the house (typical in tyler to buy your own with a house) and the washer and dryer were going. So our management quickly made sure that they were taken care of so our washer and dryer could be moved in.  

Haven't used the tub yet because Caroline beat me to it. Perfect little reading nook with a pillow and blanket!

Craft time! Caroline made windsocks, flowers, kits, and all sorts of things. She's one serious crafter.


This sky keeps showing off and blowing me away. There is nothing prettier than a Texas sunset.

Caroline's favorite animal in the WHOLE world is a zebra and her favorite color EVER is purple. So if she could be would be a purple zebra. She loved making her own paper plate animals with grams.

Water color time

I really want to nap on a bed full of warm laundry too.

Our play room is setup and back in action. Many a forts have been built and many a picnic has been devoured. We've played princesses and cooking. Seriously can't wait to love this space and play in it more and more.

We met our sweet neighbors and Caroline got bit by tonnnns of ants so she takes care of her ant bites by herself. 

After mowing Ben was experimenting with the sprinklers making our evening pretty much the best ever.

We tried out a new place called The Jalepeno Tree and it was awesome..biggest corndog ever!

We watched the storm clouds rolling in

Taste testing licorice from world market was our Friday night activity...the Australians know their licorice!

We all went to Michael's and left my mom random and funny! These two love each other so much!
Can't help but laugh at how sweet this is and how tired Caroline was today because Grams totally wore her out.

And twuuuuuuue wuuuuuuuv because Ben has been hanging things up.
And he gave me an intense church history lesson for my lesson tomorrow.
AND he totally loves residency.

So happy husband. Happy Caroline. Happy house. Our life is pretty dang good right now!
