The bank accepted our counter on a house today. So, we know what you are going through.

Love the picture. G. looks more like a toddler then a baby.

Have fun tonight.

I think the caption for the pic should read - "Two Words - Mirror Image!"

Anna Marie said...

My2Girls said...

DUDE! Great news about the house. I'll hope for more good house news tomorrow. I have to ask if you "pimped" out the "crib" video on your Dad's site? I watched the entire video and was cracking up! The music totally made it.

I drove right past Nags Head Chuch on Sunday afternoon (approximately 12:30 pm). We were on our way back to Va Beach after a weekend getaway in Avon, NC. We had a great weekend away and even hopped over to Ocracoke Island for a short while on Saturday. Ferry ride was a BIG hit with the kiddos!

I tore my tricep muscle the other day while working out with my trainer and I'm in great pain. The heating pad and I are becoming very close friends. So, I'm going to cease the typing for now. It's been a while since I last commented, so I just wanted to say "hello" and wish you the best of luck with the house!

And, of course, I L-O-V-E the photo of you and Gwyneth!!!

Tracy P. said...

Yea for you! Homeowners at last!

Fun to see little bright-eyed girl--that photo really highlights how well she is seeing, focusing right where you are. Course she's lookin' at herself, so she ought to be enthralled!

Kimberly said...

Now the real fun starts! wave goodbye to all your money, all you have, all you will ever have, welcome to home ownership! Congratulations!!

Praying for things to continue going smoothly!

Momof2bz said...

Wow! Good Luck with everything. I am sure that you are all excited :-)

marcia said...

I think she is pondering what could possibly be good about moving out of Grandma and Grandpa's home....she has a pretty cushy life there, with four adults at her beck and call! :)
So happy for you guys! This is just so awesome! Somehow, I think you are even going to be thrilled to be in the position to be making mortgage payments. Your past year sort of puts it all in perspective!

The Engelhardt 4 said...

WOW!! She is getting SO BIG!! Congrats on the house!!

Kim said...

that is the cutest picture EVER!!
Congrats on the house!

Congratulations on signing the house contract! I continue to chuckle over how much Gwyneth looks like her father! Wow!
I rarely comment, but I must tell you how much I enjoy your blog. Thank you for sharing!

Megan said...

It's a shame that your sweet little girl doesn't look at all like her daddy.
Good luck with the house - I hope that you are able to get it!!!
Megan

Emily said...

yipeeee!

Kim said...

Man you guys favor! That's awesome news about the house!

Two blessings from above said...

That is great news!
Congratulations!

Blessings From Above said...

Congratulations!!! I am so happy for you guys!

Lyndsay said...

Oh yay! I hope things work out with the contract-signing. That's very exciting news!
I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Aspiemom said...

Great news! When you first brought up your specifications for a house I thought it might take longer than it has. (We had similar specifications, so I know it really weeds them out.) It will be very exciting to get settled into your own home as a family of three, altho I'm sure your parents will miss you!

Happy signing day!

walkingbyfaith said...

Y'all are too sweet! :)

Praying things go smoothly with the house!

Tricia said...

Yeah!! Signing papers...that is a great thing. You two look so cute together. Praise God for what He is doing for your family in this house purchase. YIPEEE!!

Tricia :)
