Well, we had the contractor over and he's estimating under $1000 of damage for three different spots of damage, which is good. Turns out the leak wasn't coming from the window itself -which is why the ghetto caulk wasn't doing any good - but from unsealed roofing around the decorative trim - you'd have to see the roof to understand. Anyway, the contractor will be talking to our realtor who will be talking to the seller and then we'll know something concrete about exactly who will be paying for the repairs. If all else fails we'll go through our home warranty company, however it all depends on the deductible! If roof repairs have a deductible of 1% of the home price then we'll end up eating all of the cost, which, thankfully, would be manageable, but not desireable. Again, we're really hoping the seller owns up to her super bad behavior!

Anyway, the weekend was fun'ish. Chase took another section of the CPA which he thinks he passed. I think we had to wait a good 6 weeks after the last exam to find out his scores, so we'll get back to you when we know. He feels quite confident, though. Chase also found out last week that he has been promoted to Senior Associate. He was expecting this, but it's always nice when it happens, right? So congrats to Chase! Looks like those long hours are paying off! His performance reviews were great, too. 4 out of 5, which is basically the highest they'll give anyone who isn't living/sleeping/showering at the office. So we have a happy little accountant on our hands.

So this week is the big week! We'll find out if the nursery will be pink or blue. I'm trying to find things to do until Thursday to keep me busy, but I woke up with a sinus infection/bad cold so I'll probably just lay around between now and then. Oh well. I'll keep y'all posted!

Hope everyone had a fun weekend! Here are some pictures for good measure...Chrysta mentioned that it's funny how my kids never wear clothes. Well, they do in public, but she's right. They love to dress like little stripling warriors! Miles even reads in the buff!

hahaha I liked that last comment about Chase reading in the buff... WIERD! Anyway, I'm voting that you need to have a girl. Tell the doctor I said that, I'm sure they'll hook you up.

I'm with Alyssa...a girl would be fun. And I LOVE that photo of Cam sprawled out asleep. I miss you guys!

I didn't think contractors did anything for less than $1,000, so that's good news, well, as good as one could hope for, I guess. I think Jerry is heading to Dallas next week, I plan to send the maternity clothes with him... finally.

Hey Anna! I've missed you. Jenni and I were thinking we could all go hang out on Weds, what do you think? We need some girl time, I miss you guys! Oh, and I'm with Alyssa. Maybe the doctor could pull a few strings, and hook you guys up with a girl! Although, your boys are super cute. Anyway, you probably hear this all the time, so I'll stop! My sister finds out what she's having on Wednesday, and then you find out Thursday! What a fun week! Love ya

Congrats Chase!! That's awesome. And Madison doesn't wear clothes ever either. I love it! It's so much easier when they're naked

Chase- you're awesome. What a good example for Paxton. hehe. What a relief that is to have finished another CPA test. Awesome. Anna- you're so funny- you make things sound really good and really funny. I've never heard the expression "in the buff." But it's hilarious. haha- cute kiddies. Hope you get feeling better. Need anything? Call me if you do- i'll definitely go grab you a bucket of icecream or a croissant package and make something special with those. Love ya.

I can't believe how big Cameron is now! They sure grow fast. It was good to hear from you. Fun that you're in Dallas - though I'm sorry about all the rain and the troubles related thereto. I have an aunt and uncle along with several cousins who live in the Garland area. It's a huge metroplex so I'm sure you don't know them, but hey. . .
