Welcome to the blogging world...the house looks great!

As many of you know, Scott and I are in the process of building a new home. We have really only just begun and have met with the builder and architect once. Therefore, we are still developing our list of "must-haves" for the home (if you have any ideas...please pass them on!). The other day Alys mentioned that she wished someone would make a faucet for your home that had foot pedals (instead of reaching up with wet/grimy hands and getting the faucet all yucky!). Well, low and behold they do make such a thing...it's the Foot Faucet! It looks pretty cool - and you can even install one in your current home. Wow - what will they think of next!
We are leaning towards installing one in the new home, so we'll let you know how well they work (a year from now!)

While there is a lot to do on the inside, they recently finished the exterior. The Smith family is really excited because they've never had a home with this many levels and rooms.I only hope our new home turns out this nice! :)

Gracie and Max have been boyfriend and girlfriend since their days in the nursery. While they have always been close, she decided today she would take things into her own hands. I think it's time we have a talk with her about being too aggressive with the boys!

Tuff also made stilts...which we tried out Sunday afternoon. They are much more difficult to operate than you would think, although Scott and I weren't that shabby!
Here are a few photos of Gracie's fun weekend!

We hope everyone is having a great week...with the NCAA tournament just around the corner, how can you not?! Although it's been a hectic week at work, I've also been fortunate enough to enjoy a few girls nights out, and a family night with Scott and Gracie today! I went to see "Definitely, Maybe" last night with Patty, Caroline, Ann and Clair. it was really cute - the perfect carefree movie you need mid-week.
Tonight Gracie, Scott and I enjoyed a dinner at Hacienda followed by a trip to Barnes and Noble. A funny thing happened as we were perusing the children's area. We kept picking up various stuffed animals and asked Gracie if she knew what / who they were. She got the usuals correct...Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Dora, Big Bird, Elmo, monkeys. We were shocked though when Scott held up a strange looking thing and said "Alpaca". Grace quickly responded with perfect enunciation..."Alpaca" I'm not sure how she did it...the girls can's say Scott or Grandma or Water correctly, but she sure can pronounce Alpaca!!!
We had a great visit with the Barrons last weekend, celebrating Libby's 1st birthday. Although I forgot my camera (again!), Alison got some great shots of the big celebration. Click here to see the birthday girl! Happy Birthday Libby!!
