I have been wanting to get Alyssa's ears pierced for a really long time and Micah was really nervous to get them done because she is so young. Mama Jay, Grandpa Ozzie, Auntie Erin, Alyssa and I all asked Micah if it would be ok to get them done for Christmas this year. Yesterday for Christmas Eve day Micah finally said that she could. But not after Micah telling her that it was going to hurt really bad and that she was going to bleed all over the place. He has never gotten his ears pierced so the girls in the family who have gotten their ears pierced comforted her and told her that it would probably hurt but it usually doesn't bleed at all. She was so brave yesterday as she sat really still so that the ladies at Claire's could pierce her ears both at the same time. She cried a little but I was so proud of her for being so brave. She got to pick out her earrings and they are small yellow gold balls. They look so good on her. She's growing up too fast!! She loves them and says that it was worth it.

Since we are in the process of buying a house we decided to go to a church that was closer to it. It was an okay sized church and they announced today that they broke 400 people for their 2 services. We went to the 11:00 service but decided that if we picked this church as our home we would probably go to the 9:00 service. They are building a new building that is supposed to be done Spring of 2009. We really liked it but again we want to go at 9:00 and see what it's like for that service. There is one more church that I want to go to before we decide on a church anyway so we might be checking out these churches back and forth until we feel God pulling us in one direction or another. Pray for us to find a church quickly so we can start making friends quickly. Oh, and we met somebody today who has all blonde little girls that are 6, 4, and 1. I thought that was a sign. ;-)

This is on the other end of the computer room and it will be our formal dining room at some point. I'm not sure what it will be until that point yet but I'll figure something out I'm sure.
The family room and the windows looking out to the back. I know some of these pictures aren't the best. I took them at night. I will be getting more pictures later in the daytime though.
The downstairs bathroom. There is also a bedroom downstairs that we are going to use as the guest bedroom and when I get my treadmill that will go in there too.
The garage door has what's called the I-Drive. It doens't run off of a chain so it's not as loud and it gives a little chirp when it has opened all the way. It's actually quite cool.
I love the microwave above the stove as well and there is the splash tile on the wall above the counter. The counters are made of laminate which I've never heard of but it has the look of granite but is easier to take care of. I hope I like it because I've never heard of it.
The kitchen. Look at all the outlets on the countertops! Look at all the counter space! Also there's an outlet on the island which I'm also thrilled about.
The breakfast nook. In the window, you can't really tell, there is a little bench where I could put some pillows to sit on and look out. Also there are no blinds in the house but part of the deal with buying the house was that they will put in white faux wood blinds. I'm really excited about that because they normally cost between 60 and 130 dollars.
Separate shower. It also has a separate toilet but I didn't post just the toilet.
The utility room, washer and dryer hookups, are upstairs which I really love that too.
The upstairs bathroom.
This is Micah and I pulling the Available sign out of the ground. They put a sold sign in the ground but I'm not taking a picture in front of that until the day we close.

My Nattie (Piglett).
The three cuties getting ready to go on an adventure.
Hitting the pinata. They had a ton of suckers in there.
