About Dang Time!!

We finally signed the paperwork for our house today. No more waiting for people to get their act together, stupid reasons to slow the process down, no more having to extend our lease over and over and no more having to just sit and wait. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, let me fill you in......

We got the bid on this house back in the very beginning of July. (That's right I said July) Well, we ended up getting a HUD house a.k.a. government (need I say more). HUD didn't get their act together to sign their part of the docs till the end of August. After that we kept on getting stupid reasons for why the process was taking so long such as: HUD hasn't paid all the back dues and we're not allowed to pay them (took them over a month to pay them), HUD changed some policies that they haven't announced but our lender wanted to put them into effect on us, there was a zip code change (back in January) so it took about a week to get that fixed and it took so long we had to get reapproved. So frustrating!!! My dad suggested us sending a letter to Glenn Beck explaining our situation and likening it to how scary healthcare would be if it was government run and I seriously considered it.

After 118 days of waiting we finally sigend the closing docs today. I am just so happy for this ordeal to be over with. We have been eating fast food every night since the beginning of September because I packed all the food back in August when we were first told we were going to sign. I have learned to have a lot more patience from this experience. I'm so thankful for such an awesome husband who kept telling me it would be worth it in the end. He was right, if it wasn't for the smoking deal we got on the house I probably would have walked away from it a long time ago. Now we can start focusing on paint and flooring instead of wondering if we would ever sign the closing docs on the house.

A Couple of Changes

There are a couple of changes are happening with Jordan and I. First, Jordan Is no longer inspecting sewers for Valley Hydrovac. He got offered a job to be a supervisor for a company called Get-A-Grip. He now refinishes countertops, sinks & bathtubs. Right now he is in New Mexico get some training on it. I miss him soo much. The other change is...............


We are closing on this baby in the next couple of days! We are so excited and very thankful for the whole turn of events ending up with us finally getting the bid on a house. I can't wait to take a paint roller to the inside of this house. We'll be posting some before and after pictures of our remodeling.

Jordan and I were watching SNL a couple of weeks ago and Justin Timberlake was the host. We really don't watch that show but we happened to be up and they show some of the funniest skits I have ever seen on that show. I attached the links to our two most favorite skits..........



Hope you enjoy them.

Update Finally!!!

On Wednesday Jordan's brother Cameron came home after serving a mission in Peru. Cameron left on his mission about a week after Jordan and I got married so it was really good to see him when he got off the plane. Here are some pictures from when he got off the plane. Sorry there isn't very many pictures, my battery decided to almost die and I forgot to bring extra batteries.

Hayden was a little bit upset that Uncle Jordan wasn't holding her. She has become quite attached to him.

This was the first time I've ever seen Jordan with his brothers together all at once. We're glad to have Cameron home.

My amazing husband has been working on a "desk" for me with my brother and dad for the past two weeks. I absolutely love it!! Its gorgeous!

Props to my mom for her mad quilting skills to make this awesome jean quilt for Jordan.

I got Jordan Guitar Hero World Tour. (I know it doesn't compare to what he made me)

My mother-in-law got me this stinkin cute cookie jar.

And my sister-in-law Angie who claims she is not crafty at all made me this home sign. Love it!!

Thanks for all our gifts. We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas

The Overnight Guest

The other day my mom said they had found two kittens at the schools she works at and my aunt Judy was going to keep one. But since my aunt lives in Vernon my mom needed someone to take care of the cat until someone was able to take it up to her. Well, it just so happened that Jordan was heading up there the next day to go Elk hunting so we took the cat home and had it spend the night.
She was really cute ...... this coming from someone who really doesn't like cats.
I called her Molly because she has the "M" on her foreheard.

She was sooo tiny. We had to feed her from a bottle.

It was funny, we treated her like a baby and woke her up and played with her before we went to bed to hopefully not have her wake us up a bunch of times during the night. She really wasn't bad. Jordan only got up once during the night to feed her. Jordan says he really didn't like her but he was the one who got up and fed her. I think he secretly was sad to have to hand her over to my aunt.

Our New Toy

For those of you who don't know we bought a toy hauler. Below are the pictures. Sorry they are in a weird order. I know...........its really wierd of us to buy a toy hauler when we don't have a house to park it at .......or a truck to haul it.......... or any toys to put in it. We're actually tring to sell it so give Jordan a call if you're interested.
