townhomes are way better than apartments....

i am loving not living in an apartment. with kids its a big deal. no one pounding on the ceiling or floor telling you your kids are having to much fun playing. i love having 3 levels. the kids upstairs and our room on the main floor. we don't have to tip toe around after the kids go to bed. and we can make popcorn in the kitchen cause the kids room is not sharing the kitchen wall anymore. i love having to park in a garage and not having to scrape ice and snow from our windows. and most of all i love being able to decorate. i change where i put things weekly. always trying to update my look. i think that is why i don't mind moving so much...i love to redecorate and reuse what i have. spray paint is my best friend and as soon as we buy a home...like in for-never... paint will be my walls best friend. 

here are some pics of the place...it is nothing great...but i am liking it...for now. xo

it's been awhile

i thought i would try and post at least once a month this year. not for the two of you who care for my own purposes. i am horrible at writing 'things' down. i think i have a good memory, but i know in a few years i will forget what i thought i would remember. i am good at taking pictures, i love pictures. i love looking at them and reminiscing and thinking about why i took it.
both dean and marni are growing before our eyes. everyday they learn something new and they impress me  daily with what they do learn. i need to be better at sitting down and taking in their 'littleness'. they are both speaking and it's fun to hear what they will say next. they are becoming great friends and i am loving that they are so close and will always have each other. blake is now almost 7 weeks and is such a sweet, easy going baby. i look forward to watching him grow and am excited dean has a brother. 
i will have to post his birth story on another post...for this is just a get me started post for the new year. 
we are enjoying wisconsin and look forward to growing spiritually, physically and emotionally together as a family. 2013 looks like it will be a great year for us... and i feel that it will just keep getting better for the daniels from here on out.. i am sure there will be some bumps along the way but we are here to take them on and grow stronger from them.
