So, it sounded like a good idea when we decided to put our house on the market. That was until we started doing the work to fix up our house! According to most realtors, if you are going to sell a not-so-new house in an area that is filled with new construction, you need to make your house feel like it is new. So, Brian pressure washed the house and the deck. The carpets will be professionally cleaned tomorrow. We stripped the ugly wallpaper in our bathroom and repainted. We painted the computer room and the kitchen under the chair rail. We got a new comforter for our bed. And new art for our living room. Now I am currently working on the Kids' room. Its so sad to see the hard work my mom and I did in their colorful room get covered up :(
We hope to officially list our house by the beginning of next week. Wish us luck!

Jaina desperately wanted it to snow at least once this season. On Thursday, Feb. 1st,2007, she got her wish!
Jayce surprised me with absolutely loving the snow! When Jaina was his age, she kept asking to go back inside. Jayce sat right down in the snow and picked up a handful with his mitten. He liked crunching around wearing his little black boots and leaving footprints in the snow.
Okay, I'm done with winter now. When's spring coming?
"Look, I do love my baby brother!"
I think I took like 20 pictures of Jayce and Jaina hugging before I finally got one that wasn't blurry!
Its the sweetest thing... Jayce just learned how to hug and kiss. He says, "Gug?" And he'll run up to you and wrap his arms around and say, "awwww!". Then for kisses, he makes a smacking sound and gently places his lips on yours. Or, he'll give you his forehead in order for you to place a kiss on his head.
He melts my heart daily now :)
