So it is official we are in escrow for our new house. Now don't get me wrong it was built in 1979 so it is as old as I am. The good thing is that it is move in ready the sellers have re done almost every part of the house. The areas that they haven't done are still in great shape. We are so excited and as long as all goes well with the inspection and the rest then we will own the home in late March.
We really wanted to try to stay in the same school and ward, but we are in a diffrent stake. We are litterally one street over from our ward boundries and in a diffrent stake. Who knew. The kids will be able to stay in the same school and that was most important. Not to mention we are still really close to work and all our friends in the are. Feel free to come and visit anytime you are in So Cal Lake Forest area.

Sorry for not having pictures lately, but I haven't even had time to update anything. So I just wanted to get everyone up to speed on our house buying process. So Marcus and I both liked a house and put in an offer and then did the home inspection and there were a ton of things expensive things that would have to be done to let us move in. Moist walls in the master bath was just the begning. With Isaac's terrible asthma there was no way we wanted to chance that without doing a mold test and who knows what that would unfold. So we both decided that this house isn't the one for us. We weren't feeling it. There is another house that I went to see today that I really liked and we are going back with Marcus tomorrow. We will see there isn't a pool at this one, a huge spa, but everything was recently re done so that is nice. I will keep you all posted and post pictures once we know what house we are going to purchase. Please remember us in your prayers that we will get the right house. Thanks Stacey
Thank you to all the friends and family that called and or sent me something to wish me a happy birthday. I turned 30 yesterday and I have to say I was having a hard time with it. Over all it was a good day. I went to breakfast with some friends from school and church it was nice to talk and hang out wiht more poeple. Laura and I went to Disneyland to ge my fun card to spend of over 60 dollars. My Mom came as well and she and I and Zach (Laura's baby) shared an ice cream. It was yummy! The bummer part of the day was that we had to get back for the kids getting out of school and to hold our den mtg with our bears. That was interesting as it always is. Afterwards I came home put on my pj's to watch TV and enjoy myself. Marcus came home and got El Pollo Loco yummy for dinner and I vegged most of the night. So now that I am 30 I need to remember that it is the new 20's thanks to Michelle!!!
