House in the making

It's still hard for me to believe that this will soon be our house, I don't think it will actually hit me until we are living in it. Things are moving along and we are really excited!! Last weekend I met Aaron out there to pick out countertops, tile, carpet and so many other things I don't know anything about. Even though I didn't feel like I knew much about this kind of stuff it was still way fun and I was surprised at how opionated both Aaron and I were about certain things. I can't wait to see it all put together.

WAHOO!!!! Can't wait to have our own house and a normal life again.

Aaron is down to 2 weeks now, but it just doesn't seem as exciting as it once did since the girls and I will most likely stay here until the house is finished, which will hopefully be the beginning of July. He will get 9 days off though, which we are definitely looking forward to. This is one feature I can't wait for. We've never lived in a house with a nice tub that is actually comfortable to sit in. yeah!!!! I made Aaron be creative in this picture, isn't he good at it?

Jess! I had no clue you went out there ever after seeing you yesterday. I can't believe this is YOUR house! Doesn't it feel so weird being almost home-owners? It looks great so far. Can't wait for you to enjoy it. Well yes I can...

Ha ha ha, I love how creative Aaron is! That seriously killed me. Looks great! Can't wait for tomorrow!

So THAT'S what creative means...hmm, interesting.

It's looking great. It's always fun to see that progress. Are they putting in your yard as part of building the house or will you guys do that yourself? Just curious since we FINALLY, 3 YEARS after moving in to our house, are getting our yard completed this year.
