Goodbye 2008!

I know, I know, I know - it has been entirely too long since my last post and y'all don't know what to do with yourselves do you?

Just wanted to write one last post in 2008 before my big update post will come after the new year. Sorry for the hiatus - we had a wonderful Christmas in London with Matt's family and are now headed down to Austin for a belated Christmas celebration with my family! It's never too late to celebrate the birth of our Savior though, right? :) I hope you all had a restful, blessed holiday! I'll be back soon with pictures and a more detailed update of what's been going on lately!

Happy New Year!

Overheard in my classroom...

"But Mrs. Coleman... I jus' did not get enough sweep wast night!" - One of my 4 year olds explaining why she was taking so long to finish her project

"Ok - who knows why we are bringing in canned food?"
"For people who don't have money!!"
"Yeah like my mom- she always tells me she doesn't have any money."

"Oh my goodness - what am I doing?!" - Another one of my 4 year olds who decided what he was coloring was not what he meant to color

"Mrs. Coleman! I I I - I decided I am going to change my name..."
"Really? To what?"
"Umm... probably Picachu I think"
"Oh ok - should I call you Picachu then?"
"Nah... just call me Neal"

"What would you give Jesus for His birthday?"
  • A skateboard
  • Seashells!
  • A race car
  • Socks
  • Love
"Colin - there's enough of those for you both to help!"
"Well THAT'S convenient isn't it?"

"Who knows what a pilgrim is?"
"OOOH! I know! Ummmmm...... an elephant?"

After practicing our sign language to the song Silent Night for our Christmas "show" -
Rhett: "Cooper - I am SOOO sick of this song, aren't you??"

A big update!

Finally I have some good pictures of the framing that's up for our house! They started on the framing before Thanksgiving, but we haven't had time to get out there when it's still light out until this weekend. Enjoy!

Taken from the top of our street - we're the little house on the right at the end. There's only 3 houses on our street so far.

Finally we have a roof!

Taken from the hallway looking back towards the front door.

This is where the kitchen will be! - I love the round end to our breakfast bar.

Matt standing in our family room (texting his dad) =)

Our bathtub in the middle of the master bedroom.

At this point I think things "stall" for awhile because the gas, AC and plumbing all has to be finished and inspected, and then we have a pre-sheetrock meeting with the builder that won't happen until after the 1st of the year before we will actually get walls. In case you want to start putting these pictures in order of the layout of the house - here's a link again (you might have to click on the "show floorplan" button) to the floorplan (just remember that our house is flipped from what is shown online).

On another note - only 2 more weeks until Christmas break for me! The kids get more and more hyper every day - so by the time our Christmas party rolls around, I will be so ready for a vacation! We are headed to London this year for Christmas with Matt's parents on the 20th for a little over a week, so I'm really excited about that! Then we'll head down to Austin on New Year's Eve to have Christmas with my family :) I love this time of year!

If Love Was Enough

Contrary to the title of this - I am not about to write about some sad relationship story - it's just the name of a song! Keep reading...

I wish I could say I was cool enough to get another blog "tag", but I'm not - I stole this from my roommate from freshman year at Baylor after she posted it on facebook. I thought it might be fun - and it gives me something to blog about until I can get some more pictures of the house taken. Thanks Laura!
