As requested

My dad requested some photos.  I hope these do not disappoint.  The two are pictures of our overly packed car before we picked up a canvas car top carrier.  We figured out a better way to transport our plants (I couldn’t part with some of those beauties!)

This is our one sight seeing venture during our trip.  We stopped at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, MO. We parked our car and walked over (it was Jammie Day, so the kids are all wearing jammies, in fact, it may be the day after our scary HoJo stay, which would be WHY it was Jammy Day.)  They were really happy to run around.
Isn’t that pretty?  Spencer couldn’t wait to climb to the top of the “Rainbow Tower”.
This is a view from the top of the tower.  Can you see the big stick figure in the snow?

There was a museum as well

Our crazy small kitchen.  It’s so small I want to cry most days that I’m making dinner, and do about every 3rd day.
Here is our living room/where the kids sleep.  This was the day I really needed a nap.  I laid down on the couch and gave the kids pillows and turned on some Bearenstien Bears movies.  I had a nice nap.
And so did Spencer :)  Isn’t my flash awesome?  This room was DARK, like step on my son kind of dark.

The nearest playground to our new house (as well as our TLF).
Look at this smile
And here is some pasta I made the other day.  It’s a recipe I got from The Pioneer Woman.  The verdict? Matt says it’s the best pasta I have ever made.  Yummy!  Do you love my fine china?

    I had no idea that you could go inside the Gateway Arch! Very cool. Love the car pics. That's what our civic would look like when we would try to go camping for 2 days. And that is why I love our mini(van)now!

    Those pictures were very telling :) Thanks so much for that yummy recipe! I am going to try it! What did you use for wine? Anything? Tell Emma that I'm trying to grow out my hair to hair style right now.

    Yay for pictures!! The Arch pictures are SO cool, I'll bet they loved it! That recipe looks so yummy. That's funny about the TLF kitchen, when we stayed at one last year I was raving about how much BIGGER it was than our kitchen at home! Same layout too. It certainly had way more cupboard pace, if not counter space. So your house is close by there? How when you get to move? So glad it's soon though!
