Here are more pictures of the house that some of you requested to see. We signed the paperwork yesterday and will be getting the keys on Monday, if all goes well. My family is coming up to help us move in and to spend Christmas with us. We will be staying in our house for Christmas amongst all of the boxes. It will be a Christmas we will always remember! All of the walls are very white, so they will be blank slates for me to color the way I want. That won't happen until after we move in. We will also need to landscape the backyard because it is full of nasty weeds right now. Here is a basic tour:
Livingroom/Formal Diningroom- we will be using it as a playroom:)
Kitchen- I love the numerous cabinets and the open floorplan:)
Great Room- Just off of the kitchen. I can't wait to use the gas fireplace this winter:)
Hall- The first door on the left is the office. The door at the end of the hall is the boy's bedroom. The master bedroom is on the right just past the closet doors:)
Master bath- I am calling the master bedroom the master suite because it is soooo big! I love the bathroom, which is a room in itself. The toilet room is on the left and the shower is on the right. Brandon and I joke that our closet is as big as the first apartment we had!:)

Porter had a blast playing in Portland's first snow! It is actually unusual to get this much snow in December. We got 4-5 inches and church was canceled! If he could have, Porter would have stayed outside all day, even if he froze solid!
We had to go see "Sansa" (Porter's pronunciation) because Porter has been excited this year about Santa. We got to the mall fairly early, but of course still had to wait in line. Try telling a 22 month old to be patient and wait for your turn! When we finally got to "Sansa", Porter didn't know what to think and only sat on his lap for a couple seconds. The things we do for our kids!
