I'm back, and I'm home.

Home at last. I have never been happier. We are in our beautiful new house, and we are absolutely in love with it. We moved in last Monday and finally got internet today. (Hallelujah - you all know how attached I am to the internet!)

We also - miracle of miracles - got cable television! I always swore up and down I would never get cable, for so many reasons. But let's face it. Living in Altus wore me down. I got hooked on a couple shows (Food Network, Jon and Kate Plus 8, etc...), and apparently Andrew did too. Plus, it was a better deal to get cable, internet, and phone rather than just 2 seperately, strangely enough. We also bought a humongous, larger-than-life television (another thing I swore I would never have in my home) from Andrew brother Perry. And I hate to admit it, but I LOVE it. It's big, it's high-def, and it's awesome. Like Andrew said, "There is nothing like seeing an onion in high-def." (Referring to my excitement over finding out that Food Network is an HD channel.)

Anyway, enough about our media stuff. We just love it here in Washington. The weather is amazing. (I know, I know, all you downers - I know it's going to rain a lot soon. But shut up and let me enjoy the beautifulness while it lasts.) Our neighborhood is great. Our house - have I mentioned yet how much I love our house? Oh, man. I have never been such a good housekeeper in my life. I actually enjoy cleaning the kitchen. I know - words you never thought would come from my lips. But it's true. I'll post pictures soon. We're just about through unpacking. It's amazing how much space we have! Our closets are gargantuan, and we don't even know what to do with our bedroom. In the past it has always been an issue of how to fit our king-bed in our bedroom, but now...it seems small in there. Because it's the only thing in there!

Eva loves it here too. She plays in our backyard, goes up and down the stairs, and looks out her window in her adorable bedroom with the purple walls. (We painted a couple rooms before the movers came.)

Anyway, Andrew is waiting for me to watch a movie (in HD! I love it!), so I will end. Oh, and Leighton is 2 months old today! He is absolutely huge now and has chunkly little thighs and cheeks. A far cry from a month ago when he was a little skinny minny miller.

Sigh. I love my life.

Can't wait to see the house! It sounds wonderful. Oh, and thanks for your help with the signing videos- I ordered two of them. Hugs to Eva and Leighton!

Glad to hear from you again! Can't wait to see pictures. I'm sure it's adorable. Now you can watch The Office too! I'm so jealous--I can't wait till we come up for Thanksgiving to see what you guys have done with the place.

I've gotta say, we are a little jealous in our 900 square foot apartment with a 27" t.v. that is definitely NOT hi-def.

But SO happy for you guys! I hope you will post pictures of the house soon! Oh, and no matter what ANYONE says about the rain in the Pacific NW, you are going to love it. There is nothing like going to sleep with the sound of the rain outside your window.
