I didn't know you guys were thinking about building a house. Do you already have property? We have a really nice 1/2 acre lot right next door to us that is still up for grabs. You would have really nice neighbors :) and I don't mean just us...we LOVE our neighborhood! Anyway, you can get 1/2 acre up here for less than 1/4 acre in Roy and you can't beat small town living! Anyway enough of my sales pitch!

Your little girl is so cute! Gotta love how they answer questions, it is really funny to see the world from a kids perspective. Haha, thanks for a good laugh!

love it! they are so candid it is such a fun perspective. your trunk or treat post was right on. I'm activities Chair and I don't do that activity #1 for the very reasons and chaos that you wrote about and #2 we actually live in a really safe and awesome neighborhood and i just think there is something about taking your kids door to door like in the "old" days. We do a soup social at my house instead and have a fire pit, donuts, hot chocolate and neighbors bring crockpot soups. So it is more like a pit stop, warm up and chat activity on Halloween night. Anyway, that was a really long comment. yikes!

I loved hearing your girls' perspective on the world. Sounds like all you do is what TV all day right? ;)
