YES- You are looking at a "SOLD" sign in the Walton's front yard!!!
We had someone call for a showing on Saturday afternoon, call to see it again Sunday afternoon, and make an offer that evening that we accepted. YEAH! The inspections were today and, as of now, will close mid-February. This should work out perfectly as the new house should be done 10 days or so before that. Thanks for all the prayers and keep them coming so that everything works out smoothly with the completion of the new house and the details of selling this one.
Harper has been introduced to the world of the pac-pac (pass-pass) as we call it. She's still struggling to keep it in but Big Brother Caleb sure likes finding it and making sure she has it with her, like even when she's peacefully sleeping - ha!
Speaking of Caleb, he is certainly fulfilling all the two year old "symptoms", namely the selective listening thing (think that's something that males never fully recover from!!) and getting into everything! Here's what Caleb found one night when I was gathering the trash to take outside. I am not sure if it is any less gross that it's empty?!?
We had an exciting but short-lived event over the last few weeks: Caleb went #2 in the potty. He's never gone in either his little potty or the big potty but wanted to try it this particular night before his bath. He was holding on to me so tightly to keep from falling in that I think the strain is actually what forced the success, but - hey -we'll take what we can get. He was very proud and wanted to show Dada and Harper and then call Grandma to tell her. We've tried a few times here and there as he shows interest but no such luck on the repeat potty event.
Harper is spending longer periods of time awake but still taking great naps (like right now!) and is sleeping well through the night. We had a couple of times when she slept straight through the night but is back to waking up once, which I can totally live with.
We spent several fun times with my parents last week. Caleb saw a commercial for a monster truck rally on TV and was very excited. We decided that at $32 a ticket for a show that didn't start until Caleb's usual bath time where other onlookers could be potentially shady, we would not attend the rally. BUT... two of the trucks did come out to Reasor's in BA so Caleb, Harper, G-Dad, and I loaded up to check them out. Caleb was very excited but didn't want to get too close to them. And, based on the folks in the huge line for autographs, we now know where all the "State Fair people" go after the fair is over :)
After the monster truck fun, we headed back to our house to watch the OU-FL game. Here's a cute picture of the siblings. Between all the bowl games and the NFL play-offs, Caleb was pretty much over football and couldn't have cared less about watching. Oh well. He'll get some time off soon.
I would love to be able to get on here and share in the glory of my Sooners winning the National Championship, but we all know how that worked out :( I feel badly for the team and for poor Bob Stoops and his propensity to lose the Big Games. Eager to see what Bradford decides about entering the draft or not. Guess we'll find out tomorrow. Here's Harper in the AD throw-back jersey.
Friday afternoon we ran errands with my mom then stayed at their house for dinner. Caleb and G-Dad enjoyed some quality time in the garage, doing manly things like sweeping and checking out the various sizes of screwdrivers.
Here's Harper's one-month pic. Cute as a button, right?
Here's another sweet picture from earlier in the week. She is totally un-phased by the door bell, dogs barking, Caleb's screeching, etc.
