Weekend Recap!

Life just keeps getting better 
for our little family, and I cannot wait to share the news!  I am way too excited for concentrating long enough to bang out a quick-witted recap of the details, so I'm settling for...

We SOLD our house!!!

A total of 16 days on the market, and we are DONE!
Ryan and I are thrilled, as are the boys, so now the million dollar question is...Where are we going to live?  Good question.  Our first choice is Prosper.  Ryan's parents will be back there in about a year, the schools are FANTASTIC....which is a non negotiable for us...and it has a much smaller feel than where we are now. 

Ryan and I have a small getaway planned for the 2 of us this coming weekend, but we are planning to take the day off from work on Friday and act like bonafied house hunters!  How much fun is that!  On our MUST HAVE list is at least 4 bedrooms, about 1,000 square feet more than what we have now....we have 4 boys and 2 large dogs, people...we need space...a 3 car garage....for our cars and the 10,000 bikes, scooters, skateboards, sporting equipment, etc. that goes along with 4 boys, and a pool would be the icing on the cake! 
Can't wait.

Outside of the house hoopla, there were lots of good times had by all over the semana!

Ice cream from the ice cream truck on Friday was enjoyed outside at my in-law's home in Prosper.
I think Preston's was a little sour!
Sharing =)
Don't stop eating just to play basketball!
Yum
My men =)
My mother-in-law's roses.  Carol, look how great they look!
Family night on Saturday with one of the boy's favorites...steamed artichokes!
Sweet boys...although I am not sure about Carter's eyes...Reminds me of Ramona walking the runway on Real Housewives of New York.
Carter and Trysten spent the night entertaining us with costume changes...should I be worried about this one?
Last, but certainly not least, look what came in the mail on Saturday!
Painted Lady caterpillars!
Lots of greatness goin' on!
Hope you're weekend was just as fantastic!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and congratulations for selling your home so quickly especially in this market. That has to be some kind of record at least it would be here. Have fun choosing a new home.
