House Progress

Progress on the new house is moving along quickly.  We haven't posted a blog in a week or so, but today we went up and they are working on the stucco on the outside of block of the basement walls.  I can't believe how fast it seems to be coming up.  It is actually starting to feel like a reality! We will be in our house before we know it!  How exciting!

This is from earlier when they had just poured the footers.

Then, they brought up the block.

Another picture of the footers.

More blocks.

And then there were walls!

Hard at work on a Saturday.

Stucco on the outside.

Our crazy boy is growing up so fast!  He will be 15 months old in two days!!!  I can't believe it!  He is really into everything!  He loves books, coloring with crayons, playing with the dogs, kicking the soccer ball, and just being silly!

A day at the park...Landen loved looking at the ducks!

Going for a walk

I love swinging!!

Happy boy!

Playing at the house site

He seems to enjoy getting dirty!

This is one of Landen's favorite places to play, if you can't find him, this is probably where you can find him!

He can destroy the entire cabinet in less than 1 minute.


Reading with MoMo

MoMo always has her hands full with these two!

The work continues....

Of course, we are just getting started and we have a long way to go, but they came out on Saturday and did a little more clearing and digging for the house.  This dream is becoming a reality and we are getting very excited!

The Clearing begins....

They started a little clearing yesterday. They had some trouble getting the equipment to the top of the mountain, but they made it and started the clearing. They've taken down some trees and started digging the basement. It might be hard to tell what you're looking at because we got some snow last night, but here are some pictures of what's happening so far.
