Waiting for our castle

Not too long ago, we made the announcement that our backup offer on a house had been moved up to the primary offer and we were in the waiting game for bank approval. Well, some paperwork has been shuffled and the previous owners are moving out and we are a bit closer to actually getting this thing done. We are going to see it with Christi's dad today so he can have a look at it (postponed from a couple weeks ago) plus the older kids. A few of you have asked, so I'll provide this link to the listing, for your viewing pleasure. As before, I'll ask any of you that pray to keep us in your prayers to get this house. I think it is the one we were meant for.

New Choppers!!

With all the things that need doing around our house, some things just stand out when they get accomplished and deserve special notice. What's that you say? Did I finally get the garage cleaned out? No. Did Christi finally work a vacation trip into an already tight budget? No....

What got fixed yesterday can't be claimed by either Christi or me, but makes us so happy, it deserves a post all it's own.

Chad got his teeth fixed!!

Some of you may remember that awhile back, Chad was attacked by some lowlife who hit him in the face with a hammer. While he was otherwise uninjured, his front 3 teeth were shoved back up into his gums and damaged. They eventually came back down, but were expected to die in place and maybe fall out. Well, after much wrangling with the health insurance and the dentist's office, he has finally gotten his teeth capped and re-secured in place. (I don't know the details, just now they look great and don't wiggle) He goes back in tomorrow to get a cleaning to start things off fresh. Chad can once again flash his winning smile without immediately putting his hand up to hide his messed up teeth. He's a good looking boy, but the teeth just put the final touch on his handsome mug.
