We Bought A House!

Well, we closed on our home and moved in. We still have junk all over the place and are trying to get it unpacked, but we are here. I don't know how many people Katie has told, but for those of you wondering here are the stats of our home that is way too big.

Bedrooms: 5

Bathrooms: 3

Other rooms: Living, Dining, Kitchen, Breakfast area, den, laundry, game room.

Garage: 2 car attached

Square Footage: way too much (the plan is to grow into this one in the next 5-10 years)

attached are a couple of videos of the home. The first one is the quick version for those of you who are pressed for time.

Just in case that wasn't good enough for you here is the longer version.

Well, we're excited to have our own space now, and feeling more and more permanent every day. My job is going well, and we have some friends and family close by. Katie is due to have the baby on September 18th. We think we have decided on the name Brianna Lynn. Alyssa is pretty excited to have a baby sister. That's about it for a quick update. Hopefully Katie gets on here soon and posts what is going on in more detail.

Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there. We recently got the rest of the band for Guitar Hero, and Alyssa loves playing the drums. It kind of reminded me of my own dad, who is constantly drumming on the table, the steering wheel or whatever is around. He played the drums growing up, and has continued to have a good beat. I thought that this video would be a good tribute to him and the joy in drumming that he has apparently passed on to Alyssa.

I know that Katie loves to watch videos of other people's kids, so in case you wanted to hear what Alyssa was actually saying and doing through the video I have added the undubbed version below. If you listen closely you may hear a couple of yells for "Cookie monsa an' Gwova!"(Grover). Enjoy.
