Hannah is down for a nap after a fun trip to the park. I thought this would be a good time to catch everyone up on all that's going on with us. Life is good! Kev got a promotion at work about 6 months ago and is absolutely loving work. Hannah is growing like a weed. She is a ball of energy from the moment she wakes up to the instant she finally falls asleep at night. I'm still at Sutter on the High Risk Maternity floor and loving it!
Our biggest news, most of you have probably already heard. For those who haven't, here it is: We have bought a new home! We are sooo excited to be moving into a bigger place. We are staying in the area, just moving farther into Elk Grove. It's a fairly new development, with several builders in the area. It's a perfect time to buy, we are getting a lot of house for a good price. It's also a bad time to sell, so we'll be renting out our existing home. The house is being built for us so we got to pick out the lot, pick out the cabinets, the carpet, the whole shebang! That has been a lot of fun!
We started this whole process in late January. We were told to anticipate the whole process to take around 6 months, pending weather. Well wouldn't you know its rained straight for what seems like the last 2 months!!! Anyway, I'm happy to say that things are finally starting to move and we're hoping to be in our new home by July, August at the latest.
Here are some pictures of whats happened so far:

This is a picture of what the outside of our house will look like.

This was our lot before anything was started. We will have a 20 foot side yard...Kev was very excited about this. We have some actual space between us and our neighbors!


Hannah in the trenches...

Frame up and plumbing and electric box in place

gravel down and covered...ready for the big rain front coming through. As of today, the rebar was in place, the foundation should be complete by the end of the week! Then comes the REAL fun of watching the house take shape!

last but not least, a shot of our granite, carpet, cabinets and tile for the house. We will keep you all posted with updates and pictures as things progress!
