Tile in the New House

We have been building a new house for the last month and a half.
I haven't really blogged about it cause we were still unsure what was going to happen with the new baby and selling the townhouse.
But now that we are only a couple of weeks away from finishing and I've got some cute pictures, I'll blog just a little.

We had Pops, Brandon, and Colt come down for the weekend to help Brian tile.

Hayden's the Cutest Little Helper:

Uncle Colt cutting Tile for the Entry Way:

Colt and Brian cutting a difficult piece:

This was Colt's Project for the Weekend:
The Entry Way with the Decorative Tiles.
Colt is such an artist and perfectionist.
I don't think a real tile layer could have done better.

Pops and Mr. Hayden Bo-Bayden:
Working in the Basement. They were framing-in the Guest Room.

Brandon Grouting Tile:

The finished laundry room:

Thank you Boys for ALL your help. We wouldn't have been able to do it without you.
We are so grateful for our family.

We should move into the new house during the first part of July. Just in time to set-up the baby girl's room. Stay posted for the finished house!

New Cousin Charlize

On Sunday, June 5, 2011
Nick and Ashley
had a beautiful baby girl!

Charlize Elizabeth Wright
6 lbs. 6 oz
17 3/4 in.
Even though she was 3 1/2 weeks early, she was healthy and strong enough to go home on Tuesday with Mommy.
Hayden's First Cousin!
Hayden will have a new Uncle the beginning of July, a new baby sister the end of July, and another cousin in August.
The Family is just growing. :)
What a beautiful little blessing.
Congratulations Wright Family!

First 7-Peaks Trip

While Jamie was visiting, we went to 7-Peaks.

Hayden thought that the orange slide was babyish. But he liked that he could walk around the little pool without any help. The deepest it got was to his nipple line. He loved the freedom that came with his new height.

He LOVED the Big Kid slides.
Jamie helped him at the top of the slide and I would catch him at the bottom.
He was such a BIG BOY and went down the slides, by himself, a bazillion times. I finally had to tell him "last time" because he was shivering uncontrollably and his lips were blue.

Jamie even took him on her lap down a HUGE SLIDE. He thought that was great! He kept on pointing to the "Green, Big Slide" and saying, "I went on it!"

Thanks Jamie for being our photographer/nanny for the day.

Baby Girl Shower

My sister, Jamie, threw me a little "Sprinkle" for Baby Girl.

I forgot to get the camera out until we were more than half-way through the party.
So here a couple of lame pictures. But Hey! Now it's at least Documented.

Thank you to all my friends and family for your love and support.

You'll notice that in every picture she's BUNDLED-UP.
She froze the whole weekend.

Addie, Hayden, and Jamie:

Hayden and Jamie:
Hayden was brave enough to go for a ride with Jamie. He didn't care who drove, as long as he was going. (She did really well).

Brian called Hayden, "HELMET" the whole weekend
(Darth Vader from Spaceballs).

She prizes herself on not smiling for pictures :)

The Below 12, Boys Group:
Trying to Play Horseshoes, kinda Dangerous!

Hayden loved playing with ALL the Boys, and he didn't even notice that he was half their age or height.

Mr. Hayden Bo-Bayden:
I can't tell if he's saying, "Up", "Look at My Gloves", or "Help, My Hands Are Dirty!"
Probably the Ladder.

Grandma and Shauna just doing the "Camping Hang-Out":
(Yes, that is Grandma. You can tell because she's prepared for the Arctic.)
