Pinterest Please

I have a new obsession and it's called Pinterest. I spend my free time pinning, researching, gawking and planning. Here is one of my favorite fireplace pictures that I found in a magazine (wish I could remember which one) and I need a place to post it so I can upload it to my new BFF - Pinterest! :)

Sheep, Sheep, Sheep, Sheep looking at me....

Gavin read us a bed-time story last night and it cracked us up. I raced for the camera! We are cracking up at how he holds the book, and of course the enthusiasm of his reading. Enjoy!

Bedtime

video
This video was from earlier this month but thought I would share it because it's so cute! Gavin wanted to hold London for bedtime stories. London loves these miniature picture books and was "reading" it to Gavin. On the page he has it opened to there is a horse on one page and a fire engine on the other. Notice London barking at the book, because that is what a horse says - right?! Like I said, this video was from earlier this month. He now has it figured out that a horse says neiiiigh, but so does a sheep.

Sportsmen

video
The boys love throwing balls, swinging a stick and apparently practicing wakeboarding on the couch! We captured them playing together in the living room over the weekend - London playing lacrosse (or just getting dizzy) and Gavin wakeboarding standing on a book on the couch (because the cushions bounce better than doing this fun sport on the floor).

In case you can't make out their words....London starts out saying "cheese" because that is what you do for a camera. And Gavin tells us that he is "wakeboarding to Daddy's boat".

Sold! To lucky number 7!

Most of you know we have had our house on the market for ~2 years. We put it on the market before we even got pregnant with London knowing that we wanted to start building a house on a lot that we purchased in a golf course community a few years ago. The past 2 years we have been through 3 realtors, millions of showings, open houses and foot-traffic through our house. Which also meant that our house had to be kept clean every day! That part was trying at times especially with two little boys and two full time jobs on the side. Aside from the painful moments, we also have a few funny stories; like the lady that wanted to bring her dog with her through the house as she previewed it. The kid who puked in the hallway during an openhouse. My pain pills from my c-section going missing. Me nursing London in the backseat of my car in the driveway during a few showing when I was on maternity leave. A realtor locking the neighbors cat in our house thinking he belonged IN OUR HOUSE. Oh the memories! ;)

Seriously, we do have very fond memories of our home. It's the only home Gavin and London have known. We will miss our little old house on Beverly. Which brings me to the subject line of this post. After 6 offers fell through, the 7th contract went through and we sold our house, closed last Friday 5/20 and moved into an apartment while we wait for the construction of our new house to be finished. We anticipate that we will be in our apartment through the end of the year and will probably be making a transition into our new house somewhere around the first of the year. Maybe we will ring in 2012 at xxxx Cxxxxx....we will cross our fingers. Our new permanent address is
xxxx xxxxxx xxxxx
Austin, Texas 78730
Please update your address books accordingly. We have a mailbox there and plan to just have our mail go to the new house rather than the apartment.

For those of you in Austin who want to find us, however, we are living at the Gables Westlake by the 360 Bridge and have a great pool. Come by for a dip this summer!
