I won. I won the bet! $25!! Which means.... we got the house! We are so excited. I get to grow a garden, & I keep getting butterflies about it! I also keep picturing our summer nights playing outside until the boys are just completely exhausted. & eating popsicles & popsicles on end. On another note, its nap time right now for both my babies. They usually sleep from 1-4 but today they are both screaming in their beds. Hm. It's only 2:30. If they don't fall asleep I'm going to have some very happy children!!

turning tummies

So! Sunday we went & walked through the home. It was everything we wanted & thought it would be. Whew! What a relief! It's a darling home (& clean, which made me very happy). The yard is a dream come true, & if we get it (we find out tomorrow) I can already picture our family playing outside all year long, seriously! There's a hallway in the home, so if you're standing by the doors that go out to the backyard, you can see it leads from the laundry room to the kitchen & then to the family room. My brain just imagined our boys running down the hallway screaming and yelling. It made my heart flutter a little! We didn't want it to be too good to be true, but honestly I have such a comforting feeling about this, I think it'll work out! & if not, I know it's not the place we are supposed to be. My stomach is turning with excitement & my husbands is turning because of nervousness that we won't get it. We actually made a bet! I said we would get it, & he guessed otherwise. $25 is on the line & I can't wait to accept my payment tomorrow! I do though worry about my little Rilo bug. He loves our home now, & I completely understand that we cannot live here forever. Especially because currently we share a room with our youngest. But it still makes my mama heart hurt knowing that he will be sad leaving our current place. I have a whole month to pray extra hard for him to feel completely comfortable in the new house.
My husband made me watch The Visit with him tonight. Yikes!!!! I told him if I could get me a sodalicious I would watch it with him. He happily said "yes". I don't know what I was thinking. I hate scary movies. As scary as it was, there were a few parts that made me belly laugh. However, no more scary movies for me! They make me scream & sweat & I can't stop thinking about anything scary afterwards. 
I have to go now. I'm in bed and sonny is starting to cry. I'm excited for us to have our own room again! We will know for sure if that's happening tomorrow. Can't wait!!!

Hi it's us!

Hi! I'm currently talking to myself. So technically it's just Hi to myself. My brain is racing tonight, partly because of my 44oz just friends from sodalicious & another part because we happened to find a home that would be perfect for our little family & we are walking through it tomorrow!!!! Anyway, Hi Madeleine (that's me). Over the years I've had multiple blogs and tonight I dusted some of them off & was so happy I did!!! My blogs truly served as a journal, which I am awful at & wish I was a lot better. Hand exhausted is a real deal. I am so glad I had those blogs previously because I had written down so many things I have forgotten about, which were actually important to me. So here it goes, another blog. Im wishing myself some luck because i really want this one to stick.
Like i said, tomorrow we get to go look through that home. My stomach is all knotted because I want it to work out so badly. We're coming on three years in our current town home. It worked great when it was just my husband, me, & our little rilo. But sweet sonny came along quickly after and he's now a one year old sharing a room with his parents! I've tacked up sheets so he can't see us, but he's a little genius and knows we are in there with him & will scream his darling head off until I get him out of bed. We just need something that's affordable, but will also accommodate with our growing family. Which this is house completely does! It even has a fenced yard(!!!!!!!!!) which I have been begging for a year now. We are doing a walk through tomorrow after church & I can hardly wait!

Also, Hi it's us! Meaning Hi! It's Madeleine, Karson, Rilo, & Sonny.
