A Long Trip and Big News

After I came home from my trip to Missouri and Kansas, Laura Beth stayed for a few extra days to see a few more friends a family. Between a trip to Lincoln to see Ryla, a stay in Hutch with her parents, and a visit to Lyons to see the rest of the Sears clan she was pretty busy. This is the second time I've had to be away from her and Aidan for an extended period of time and I'm reminded again that I don't like it. I find that I get a much better night sleep getting up with Aidan every few hours than I do when I have the house to myself. We would like to say thanks to both of our parents and siblings. We enjoyed spending the time with you and are grateful for each of you going out of your way to accommodate us on our trip.

So, now for the big news. The day after LB got back in town we went out looking for homes. Before we knew it we had reached Tuesday afternoon and were putting an offer a house. We found out Wednesday morning that our offer was accepted. Now we are experiencing the joy of having our lives picked apart by our lender! We've got our home inspection Monday so I'll take a few pictures so you can see what the place looks like.

That little baby looking at Travis in the last picture is just stunning! :) Congrats on being homeowners- welcome to heartbreak. J/K- someone told me that when we bought our first home and I never forgot it because they were so wrong. We have loved being homeowners so much! We miss you guys- Ben misses Aidan very much. Still asks if he is downstairs every day. Anyhoo- this is turning more into a post then a comment. Love you and lets see pictures of your newest baby! Beth

I am so excited for you guy!! It will be so great to have your own house. We have loved it, even though there are those things that we wish we could have just called the landlord about :) I am so excited that it did not take much looking either!! Yeah!!
