Sold

I told my sisters I would post pictures of our house. Our illegitimate house because... technically we don't own it yet. But when you're this excited, who cares? By the way, I'm doing this post while watching Phineas and Ferb, so I can't account for anything I write.
View of the front of the house. This is actually a picture of a picture on a flyer. I know, got desperate when I realized I never took a picture of the front of the house on the day I took all the pictures.
View of the living room as taken from the front entrance. I really want to put hardwood floor down. Would anyone like to support us financially in order for us to be able to do that. Seriously, it would be like taking 2 weeks off of supporting QVC. Just send your money to us instead of buying those new pink and white pipeline pajamas.
Dining room. I actually like the green color! At this current time, we have no kitchen table and chairs because we sold them before we moved. Once again, I don't like having carpet where we eat, and therefore would like hardwood floor. It has been stinking cold all day today outside. Sorry, that is completely unrelated, but I felt it was note worthy.
The second view of the kitchen is taken from the family room. What is the difference between a living room and a family room? One thing is for sure, we will not have furniture for one of them. So I guess we'll put the furniture we do have in the room with the fireplace. We have a fireplace! A wood burning fireplace! I am beside myself with glee.
The second view of the family room is taken from the upstairs. We have a ceiling fan! I'm beside myself with glee.
Master bedroom.
5 piece master bath. What are the 5 pieces, anyway?!
Spare bedroom 1 which looks exactly like spare bedroom 2 which is why I only took a picture of one of them. This one will be Dawson's room.
Dawson's bathroom which is just down the hall from him. I'm going to teach him to clean it.
Stairs. Most exciting picture.
We have a basement! The ugly carpet and ugly chair will not save me during the event of a tornado, and therefore they will not stay when I move in. Did you know I have a recurring dream about tornadoes? I'm always saved, but I have to go my neighbors childhood neighbors house and go to their cellar. True story.
And now it's time for pictures of the back yard. Which is amazing!
We have a deck! I'm beside myself with glee.
We have a shed! Jason is beside himself with glee.
The amazing landscaped back yard. Ahhh..

Fence Friends.

Greg and Gloria's backyard neighbors had their grandkids over last week. One was a little boy who is just one year older than Dawson. Dawson went out to the backyard to play and when I looked through the kitchen window I could see him talking to himself. Now I'm a huge proponent of imaganery friends. But Dawson didn't stop talking, so I was a bit concerned. I went out to hear what Dawson had to say. And then, his imaganery friend talked back. And I heard it! This is when I figured out it was no small coincidence that Dawson was talking with his nose against the fence. Apparently they had been having quite a young person dialogue.
Dawson had the idea that they could play together by throwing his soccer ball back and forth over the fence. So here are a few videos of Dawson with his real imaganery fence friend.

Breckenridge

Mother's Day weekend we went to Breckenridge. Breckenridge is a quaint little ski resort town. I'm not sure why I said quaint because tons of people go there to ski. But the town was deserted on Mother's Day so I win. As a matter of fact when we first got there, we walked around for about an hour looking for a restaurant that was open so that we could eat. We had to settle for Bubba Gump's.
This is the  view of the ski slopes from the lodge.
On Mother's Day we got up early and went and bought doughnuts and Starbucks and then I asked Jason to take 1.7 million pictures of me with Dawson so that he knows I am his mother.
We had no intention of skiing. As a matter of fact, this time of year that we went is called the mud season there, and they don't have slopes open. If you are agoraphobic, this is the perfect time and place to go on vacation for you.
We only stayed one night. On our drive home we decided to go through a town called Frisco and also drive by Dillon Lake, which is the picture below.
When we got home I got to open my presents. One of which Dawson tried showing me all week long. It was a round cement lawn stone with his hand prints in it. And I also got a manicure/pedicure treatment that I still need to use by the way. I should go right now. 
See ya.

A Boy and His Bike.

Dawson recently got his first bike. I know my mom was struggling with the idea of this. She thought he should ride his plastic hotwheels 3-wheeler until he got his license. I can sympathize since that is what she had me do. If i can just say.. I think little kids look so stinking cute in those helmets. He also has elbow pads and knee pads but we didn't want to go overboard on the good parent thing and ruin our reputation. Overall he had a good first attempt. Just a few variations on a theme of frustration. Such as when he couldn't remember how to get the bike to stop and Jason or I had to run in a panic to stop him. And at first the seat was too short for him and his foot kept sliding off the pedal. Then there was the problem of driving straight and not into oncoming joggers. He's actually only wrecked and fallen off the bike once. That's because I tripped over him.

Easter

So I promised a few people that I would update. So here I am. Although I have no motivation from creativity, only moral obligation. Forgive me if this post lacks excitement or adventure. Maybe I'll throw in a few typos to keep the readers intrigue and suspense alive?Due to my OCD tendency to post in chronological order, the following pictures were taken on Easter Sunday of my little man looking all grown up.
We talked him into holding his cutest baby cousin Mia. The kiss was staged of course.
After our church service we came home and ate and then Dawson got to hunt Easter eggs.
Has anyone out there ever heard of Resurrection Eggs? Just curious.
We tried getting a decent family picture. Didn't really happen did it? I blame the overall nuance of genre specific problematic sanctions. Because I needed some way of making this post interesting. That's the best I could do.
