There has been a lot of visual progress on the house this week. Dormors are up, green stuff is on the framing ( I don't really know what it is).

We have a mostly framed house now. Things are running smoothly so far. It seems to be moving quickly, but everyone says that it moves slow once the outside is done.
Carter loves going to the house and running around. Here she is standing in the living room. I am standing hear the kitchen island. Perfect view into the living room.
The house from the front. So excited for Carter to have a big yard to play in.
The view from the 4th bedroom. Soon there will be actual walls here!

This is probably the hardest part in the home building process...waiting for everything to start. We are waiting for everything with the loan to be finalized. We were told it would take about 2 months and we are halfway through that time. It will be a bittersweet moment when we finally close because then we can start the actual house building but it will also mean we have to say goodbye to a big chunk of our savings.
In the meantime, the builder has been out to the property to do a soil test, we have an address, and we decided where we want the front of the house to be.
Here is Miss Carter staking out where she thinks the house should be.

Chris played around with photoshop a bit and redid the colors on the house we saw last week. We are not finished choosing colors, but we have chosen a gray siding, red door, white trim and white shutters. So this gives us an idea of what it will look like.

1. Move into our new house!
2. Graduate from Grad School!
3. Host a Christmas Party in our new house. (Hosting stresses me out so it will take me a year to plan this thing.)
4. Read the Book of Mormon twice.
5. Expand my Teachers pay Teachers store.
6. Read 30 books.
7. Go on a vacation. Chris wants Europe, I am fine with anywhere not in Texas.
And as always, spend time with this little girl. That's not really hard to do.
