Josh'a wallet has been returned!!

A couple days ago, Josh's wallet was stolen right out of his truck at our house. And then later that day, we received a phone call from a neighbor two blocks up from ours saying he found Josh's wallet in their yard a long with a couple others. He came to our house & returned it. To our pleasant surprise, everything was still in it! Yay!!

I bought Josh a new wallet, he took out his SS card and now he is making sure he doesn't leave it an ANY vehicle. Lesson Learned.

Merry Christmas!

Bah Humbug!!

The Holidays are a great time but they are also the worst time for thefts etc. Josh woke up this morning to find his truck door wide open and his wallet stolen. On Christmas Eve! I called the Pasco Police at 8am this morning, called our bank and credit cards and canceled his cards. The sucky thing is, his SS card was in his wallet along with other important thing (that can be replaced) but now we have to watch our credit and PRAY that whoever stole the wallet won't use the SS card. We had also planned on using our credit card to purchase a few things for the new house but we won't get new cards for 7-10 business days. So the honey do list is put on hold.

What a CRAPPY Christmas!

We Signed on the House!!

Merry Christmas to us! Josh and I signed on the house yesterday. Unfortunately we don't get the keys until Monday, but it was still nice to be able to sigh.

Merry Christmas to us! :o)

Signing and Closing on the House

It's been a long time since I've talked about the house. We have been dealing with the final stages of the house. We did the final walk through on the house, the builder fixed things that we didn't like. We had to wait for our last paycheck to come through because we are putting just over $7000 down on the house (including closing costs). Friday we turned the last of the paperwork that the lender needed. Monday we should sing the documents and then get the keys on Tuesday.

It's exciting but it's been a long last two weeks. I will try to keep you all posted when we sign and get the keys and post pics of the house. :o)

Rogers/Barrera Pregnancy Photos

Karis asked me to take photos of her when she was pregnant. I finally got around to editing them and getting them to her, so I thought I would post them here for all to see. These are just a few that I really liked. Mama and baby are doing great. Baby Jamison is three weeks old and doing great. Hopefully I will get to take photos of him when he gets a little bigger.

Nice Fall Morning

I was up early this morning and it's a nice day out. So I decided to go out and enjoy the fall leaves and take a few pics. Nothing great, but it's festive.

Motherly Love

Had to steal this moment between mother and child.

Getting the Finishing Touches In

Josh and I went by the house tonight. They got a lot done in the past week or so. I am not sure of all that they have left, but I a can't imagine that it's much. But here is what it looks like so far.

Opening Duck Hunting

Josh, Josh G. and Ryan all went out hunting bright and early this morning for Opening Duck Hunting. They limited out by 8:30am. These pics are a bit violent but it's the boys' trophy.

21 ducks.

Birthday Present

This is one of the presents my Little Sis Ashleigh and her mom Michelle got me for my B-day. I love it. I mentioned liking my little sis' purse just like it when she was back here in June and she remembered! Yay! :o)

Insulated and Ready to Dry Wall

Josh drove by that house last night after work and saw them unloading drywall. So curious, we drove by that night and went inside. The insulation is all in and I am sure they have started putting up dry wall today. So exciting!! They could be done with the house sooner than we thought! Yay!
