House Hunting

Tomorrow is a very exciting day for us. We are looking at 7-8 houses that we have found online that we are interested in looking at in the Dothan area. We've been talking about our wants/needs in houses over the last few weeks and I think we have come up with a pretty good list to look at tomorrow. Some are in town in nice subdivisions and some are a little outside town with a little acreage. This is a really big decision for us so we are a little nervous. I'm trying to go in tomorrow with an open mind. We also have to find a rental in the next week! We have so much going on! We had appraisers and real estate agents and inspectors in our house all last week. I spent all day Saturday before last cleaning. The kids didn't come home all weekend! When I went to pick them up Monday morning from my mom's house, there were clothes, shoes, toys, diapers and food scattered all through her kitchen and living room. THAT is exactly why I didn't let them come home all weekend! LOL. Monday night we ate supper at Gregg's granny's house, I bathed them there and then brought them home and put them straight to bed! It  is a JOB keeping the house straightened up and clean with three small kids. I tried to stay on top of it all last week, but my laundry fell behind so I did laundry ALL day long today! Still didn't quite catch up! I swear, Laundry swells at our house! Just when I think I am making head way in it, more piles come in! Today was my first day at home with the kids. I had a really good day with them and it was very enjoyable. They were so easy! I guess when you are use to working in a room with 15-20 kids, 3 isn't so bad! Especially since one of them isn't mobile! Kaidi had fun today.. I was busy working on laundry and she came in and asked for her play food. I had packed it up in a box a couple of weeks back and I just opened the box up and told her to dig in to find it. I hear her in their about 30 minutes later and I go take a peek and she has climbed in to the box and thrown everything out of it! Here's the pic:

I just let her play! She was being too quiet to mess with her! The boys were taking a nap so it made it easy for me to get some things done! After Asher woke up from his nap, he immediately went to Kaidi's room and found her box of crayons. He decided he wanted to sit in this little nook and dump them all over himself!
And then here is a pic of sweet little Atlas and his adorable smile
I love all my babies so much. Seeing how much Atlas looks like Kenadi makes my heart smile!  
Hope you all have a wonderful week! Maybe by my next post we will have a house! :)

Good luck finding your new house. I have to say it makes me tired just thinking about i! lol And a little sad, since I've followed your blog for the past few years, and enjoyed the building of your house and all the fun you had with that. Sad to see you leave it. Wishing you success in house hunting!!
