Weekend Fun

This weekend we had a little fun.  Friday night Emma Claire stayed the night with my parents and I'm sure kept them busy that night as well as Saturday.  Since Matt had to work, my brother in law came with me and we picked up Emma Claire at my parents and headed off to the Wilson Co. Fair to meet up my my in-laws!

Emma Claire rode a couple of rides, that is about all she could ride and for those of y'all who personally know me, I have major issues with carnie rides in general so this was a big deal for me to have her ride the carousel and duck ride which just went around in a circle.  They seemed safe enough and me and my mother in law rode the carousel with her.  She loved every minute of both rides. 
Here is proof I actually rode a carnival ride.  These will be FAR and FEW between!
On Sunday, was the annual NICU birthday party.  We headed down to Baptist, saw our fave peeps and then went to dinner with our friends.  Emma Claire and Cohen were so cute and EC turned to be a happier camper once all of the crowds died down.  Not a great combination of short nap, had to be woke up and then all of the sudden a HUGE crowd of people in one HOT auditorium to boot!  We always have a blast and this year was no different.  Crazy to believe these two will be 3 in December for Cohen and January for EC.  My oh my, how time flies!
Cohen and EC giving hugs and kisses...Seeing them interact so well just melts my heart!   They are both just precious babes.

Another great weekend in the books.  They are never long enough especially when part of the weekend is spent working for a client.  But all is well in the Warren household and at least this next weekend will be longer!!! Love holiday weekends!

School Day

Emma Claire started the WEE School program two days a week at First Baptist Church in Portland.  She loves it and according to the teacher notes from Tuesday, such the helper!  Ms. Gina has no idea!

Emma Claire is so grown up and loves to be around other children.  She loves to help and especially clean up.  You give this kid a wipe and she will wipe down you entire house!  

Cannot believe she is getting to be such a big girl, but I love every day of it and seeing her grow up.  God has truly blessed up and continues to.  Matt and I are both so thankful for it all. 

Hope everyone is doing well and cannot wait for the fall season coming up.

New House

So we have been moved for a month now.  Of course, the ones of y'all out there who personally know me or have figured out from my blog, I don't do boxes, so by the 3rd day, everything was unpacked, put away and pictures up on the wall.  Yes, it does drive everyone around me crazy, but that is how we have to get it done!!!  On a side note, I could not have done all of that without many helpers to entertain EC from MJ watching her on the big moving day to my parents, Matt's parents and various other helpers the week after.  HUGE THANKS!!!!!

Here are some pictures of the house for those few people still checking in on us!

 Emma Claire's room...Such a big girl!

 Dining Room
 Living Room
Open Floor Plan much like our last house and we just feel in love with it!
 Bonus Room.  The previous owners put up two temporary rooms which was perfect.  One is our guest room on the right hand side and the other is Matt's hunting room.  We still have plenty of area for another living space which I'm working on figuring out what I want up there right now.
Part of the extra space and the additional space on the other side of the room
 Guest Bedroom
 Hunting Room - obviously my husband and mine need for immediate organization is not the same.  Well in his defense, he has been working on the garage which is exceptionally organized.
 View from Kitchen to living room and down hallway.  You can see you access the bonus room from the doorway in the picture
 Hallway to Utility room and Garage to left.  Our bed room is also down the hallway.  We loved the split bedroom floor plan as well.
 Master Bedroom with french doors onto the patio
 Of course the organized closet.  You cannot tell from this picture, but everything is organized into seasons and then by color and Matt's is the same way on the other side of the closet.  All my shoes are in plastic shoe boxes for additional organization.
 Master Bathroom
Shower in Master Bathroom
 Garden tub

 Back of the house
Front of the house.  The landscaping was okay so I trimmed the shrubs for the time being, but in the next few weeks, we will be ripping out the boxwoods and replacing with knock out rose bushes and doing a much better landscape job!

Hope everyone enjoyed the tour! 

Emma Claire started her first day of WEE school today.  More to come about that.  Such a big girl!
