Congratulations Mr and Mrs Schwalb!

This weekend we went to the Schwalb wedding. It was so beautiful and we got to spend time with some friends that we don't get to hang out with all that often. We had such a good time and laughed so much that the next day my stomach hurt from laughing. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Schwalb! We wish you many blessed years!
The happy couple Phil and CarolineRick and Amy

Update on the house

We have some walls now. The Kitchen and laundry room walls are shown in the pictures below. 9 ft ceilings... looks sort of small from the pictures but when you stand in the room its pretty big. With the addition of the 4th bedroom and added space the sqft works out to be around 2300 without the basement. The workers continue to work on the walls today. More pictures to follow. Sean

Our little Calvin Klein Model!

Tristan wants to be just like his daddy all the time. We love how he just watches him and learns and then repeats everything that Sean does. He now likes to wear his towel like his daddy. Yesterday Sean gave him a bath and then all of a sudden I hear Mommy! And around the corner comes this little man in a towel (hand towel). He was being such a poser that it was just to cute to not get on film. He can be such a little ham when he wants to be.

Congratulations Jill and Robert!

Last night we went to the wedding of Jill Schulte and Robert Miller! What a beautiful day for a wedding. I don't think that they could have asked for a more perfect day. Jill looked gorgeous and Robert looked very handsome. We were able to spend some time with some friends that we don't normally get to hang out with and we had a wonderful time.

Jill and Robert thank you for including us in your beautiful day! We wish you many blessed years!!! CONGRATULATIONS!

Today is Sean and I's 4th Anniversary! I can't believe it has already been 4 years. Boy time flies by! We celebrated last night by going to Eleven Eleven for dinner and it was yummy! It was nice not to have to rush to eat our dinner and to have adult conversation. Thank you Tammy for watching my little stinkies!

Happy Anniversary Sean! Looking forward for many more years to come!

Baseball Game!

I know that this post is overdue but it has been a very busy week and I haven't had time to do much blogging. We went to 2 baseball games last week...one with Tristan and Isabelle and one without. It was the Cards/Cubs series so of course our family was divided. I think the best part of going to the games was watching Tristan think he was cheering for his Cubbies but he thinks that their name is "boo cubbies!" He was cheering so loud thinking that he was saying the right thing!!! I loved it!

Beautiful weekend!

What a beautiful weekend it was! We really didn't do a whole lot so there isn't a lot to report. We did a little playing outside, little housework, little bit of shopping and little bit of sleeping. And on the sleeping I emphasize the little! One day Isabelle will go back to sleeping all night long I just know it:)

This week we have a very busy week ahead of us. Tonight is poker night for Sean, tomorrow we are taking the kiddos to the Cardinals baseball game, Thursday Sean and I are going to the Cardinals game without the kiddos and then Friday we are heading up to Grandma and Papa's! What a busy busy week. It should be a good one though. I will be sure to post pics from the game! I bought Isabelle a Cardinals outfit this weekend to wear to the game! Sean wasn't very happy about it but I know that him and Tristan will be decked out in Cubs gear so it is only fair that I get Isabelle in Cards gear!

Have a great week!

New pictures of the walls

Pictures below are from the walls being poured at the new house on Tuesday, Sept 2nd. The forms should be removed today so they can start pouring the basement floor. The guys were working late into the night to get it finished on Tuesday. I will post more updates as I get them. Sean

Example Basement Diagram - this will not be completed for about another year.

Finally a new post!

Tristan and Kaelynn sharing puzzles!
Getting ready to watch Cars! (this was a brief moment of quiet)
Getting ready to paint! As you can tell Tristan is extremely excited!
So mad at his Mom! My pretty baby girl!

Sorry it has been a few days since I have posted. I am running on very little sleep so my mind is a little crazy. Sooo lets see oh yes the long weekend. What a great weekend it was! The weather was nice. A little hot but it wasn't to bad. We started off the weekend with selling our house again! We were so excited and very relieved. Now we are just praying that all goes well and there is no backing out of the contract this time. On Friday night I went out to dinner with Jill, Crystal and Emily. We went to Bella Milano's and then to Erato for a glass of wine. (I am not posting any pictures from that night because we didn't approve of the way we looked in them:):) Saturday I stayed home to clean and have one on one time with Isabelle and Sean took Tristan to the zoo. They had so much fun and Tristan was very excited when he came home to tell me about the Choo Choo and the horsey that he rode. Saturday evening Sean had a bachelor party for his friend Blake so the kiddies and I went to one of our favorite playdate houses'.....the Kientzel's! Tristan got to play with Kaelynn and they had such a good time together as always. Having them play together also gives Crystal and I a little downtime which is nice. Sunday and Monday were very relaxing days. We did a little grilling, a little park time, a little playing outside and really just spent time together as a family. On Monday Mom and Dad surprised us and stopped by on their way home from visiting Chuck in Tennessee. Tristan was very excited to see his Grandma and PaPa! He cried when they left us and said no Tristan's house Grandmas house! We promised him that we would head up to Grandma and Papa's soon!! That is pretty much our weekend. Nothing to overly exciting but we love it.

On a side note HAPPY BIRTHDAY TONY! Our Uncle Tony turns 14 today! We hope that you have a great day!
