My Pictures

I've noticed that its easier to put my pictures on shutterfly so if you want to see our pictures click on my link! Or click on the Newman Nuthouse Pictures link under My other pages. I have pictures of the kids, the house, and Logans baptism!

Our New House!!!

People have been begging for information so here it is.


We have waited 2 1/2 long years to get a place of our own and now its happening!!! We are so excited we can hardly contain ourselves!

It is in Ridgefield which is closer to the city(about 20 min) and close to Peters parents house(about 20 min). Peters bus will pick/drop him up at the house so we don't have to pick/drop him off at the stop and drop any more! Yea!!! The kids will finish out the school year at La Center schools and then transfer to Ridgefield.

Ok about the house....It is a little over 2400 sq ft, 2 car garage, 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, living room, family room, and dining area. The laundry room is upstairs with the bedrooms(SO NICE!). There is a bay window in the Kitchen nook area, and tile back splashes in all the bathrooms and Kitchen. We are right up against the Green belt so there is no one behind us and there never will be. There is walking trails around the Green belt but NOT behind MY house...thank goodness I don't want people walking by every 5 min! There is a little park at the end of the walking trail so that will be fun. We are on the very end street so we won't get alot of traffic.

We are so excited.....first time we will have more than 1 bathroom, a garage, a family room, and the part the kids like the best.....Stairs! When we were looking for houses their questions were...Does it have stairs? and Does it have a pool? Those were the most important to them! I remember saying the same thing about a pool to my parents....they didn't get a pool till I moved out...Thanks mom and dad that was NICE! :-P

The Appraiser is going to the house today and the inspection will be done on Monday, then we sign Papers next week and then its time to MOVE IN!!!!! YEA!!! No more going outside and upstairs to go to the kitchen or bathroom. I will have my OWN ROOM!!! We will have more than one room!!!!! I will have my own kitchen again!!!!!! I will have my own Bathroom!!!!!! Ok can anyone tell how excited I am??

Catch up!

Ok so we are now back from Vacation. So I'm going to start from the beginning since its been a whole month!!! Pictures to come!

My parents came down to see Logan get baptized and that was so awesome! We are so excited for him and love to see his excitement for the gospel and the scriptures! My parents took Kaden with them because I would be flying out in a week anyway, and that would be one less kid to worry about. They had so much fun together but I don't think they remembered how much energy it takes to watch one that weighs so much and has so much energy!

We had Kira's birthday party the sat before we left. When we woke up that morning there was 2 ft of snow!!! We didn't know if the van would make it out! Then the power went out and I still had to cook the pizzas! Luckily my wonderful friend Rachel let us come and cook the pizzas at her house! Kira had such a nice time at her party and was so happy!

We flew out that Tuesday for my parents house and our 6 hr trip turned into a 12 hr trip! Luckily I didn't have Kaden or I don't think I would have made it! One problem was that I caught Dallas licking one of the hand rails, I thought I caught him in enough time but 2 days later he was pucking his guts out..then the rest of us were! I felt so bad. My Dad, my mom, my brothers, my sister in-laws, my nephew, my grandpa, my kids, my husband, the missionarys, it was so bad!!! Oh well! A Christmas to remember right! My husband was snowed in after we left until he had to leave and it looked like he got out in enough time because the snow just DUMPED after he left and he wouldn't have gotten to come. We had so much fun at Gma and Papa's house even though we were all not feeling well all at different times.

Peter had to go home the Monday after Christmas and then we did wedding prep for the rest of the week. Brad and Rachel's wedding was fabulous! Kira thought she was in princess land! She was in heaven! She even enjoyed cleaning it all up...she didn't want to leave! After that it was time to get packed up and go home. Luckily on the way home we were only delayed 45 min so that wasn't too bad. Logan and Kira are still bouncing off the walls though! It's been hard to get everybody back into a routine! Even me! Kaden is finally getting used to not being held constantly but it took a LOT of screaming!!

We had so much fun and we wish it could have lasted longer but now we have to get back into the swing of things.

We hope you all enjoyed your holidays!!!
