Very cute pics of the kids waiting on the basement stairs while mommy and daddy get it ready for them. They LOVE to play in the basement and we have it pretty well baby proofed, so we don't have to be too cautions as they can't get to anything dangerous, like the sump pump or other machines.
We just got an estimate on getting it waterproofed (leaks on occasion during the bad rain falls and a wall is leaning in that needs stabilized soon), I wont even say how much. Don't know what we are going to do... do we want to put even more money into this house or sell it for a little less than what we have put into it and hope it sells. We love this house and we have put so much time and work into it making it our own... but with me working in FW and Josh in Ossian, it only makes since to move closer. But I think we might be stuck here, if so, we will just have to make the best of it and deal with the driving and time away from the kids.
