Lilypie Waiting to Adopt tickers

Well, we did it! After quite a roller coaster ride, we own our first house! It was so much fun going over there tonight to look around. While Lee has quite a "honey do" list, we had fun lying on the carpet looking at our house. We can't wait to paint, update and make it our own! It's hard to go from a house with a brand new kitchen with granite countertops to one with the original ones, not to mention no walk-in closet, but we're excited to OWN something, put our mark on it, update it and get it ready to sell in a few years when we return to Colorado. But, with these views, it will be hard to leave! :) We decided it really is worth the extra money and smaller house to be near the mountains. It will make our time here all the more pleasant. Now we can begin our homestudy! (Well, after we get moved in anyway).
The Toone Family hotel is open for business! :)
We'll leave the light on for ya!

Here are a few photos of the new Toone Family abode. :) One step closer to our baby! :)

The Living room and beautiful bay window

The kitchen-those countertops gotta go!!!

Family Room downstairs

View from the backyard looking back at the house. Can't wait to put a bistro table on the brick and a patio set on the deck and have guests over to cook S'mores in the firepit!

Master Bedroom

Baby room? Hmmmmmm :)

Dining area-that wall's gotta go!!! :)

Bag stats:
I shipped out 31 separate orders of bags even as far as London England! Pretty cool! Bags are going to California, Oregon, Kansas, Missouri, Florida and the list goes on and on! Thank you for helping our dream become a reality!


Well, after a sudden appearance (7 weeks early), our little niece Madison Grace Colin has arrived! She put her mommy through quite an ordeal with high blood pressure and whacky lab levels but she is here and all are doing well and healthy! She weighed in at a whopping 3 pounds 14 ounces and 18 inches long. She is eating well with her mommy and will be in the NICU for several weeks. Mommy and Daddy had to drive to Missoula, MT, which is 2 hours from where they live in Butte to deliver her, and they are now staying at the Ronald McDonald house across the street so they can go over and see her often. They feel she really wanted to make her showing in Missoula, since that is where University of Montana is and that is where her Daddy went to school! :) She is just a little Miss Grizz! :)

I cannot say enough about this child! I love her with my whole heart! Not only is she exquisitely beautiful, but she shares my bloodlines which is just mind blowing to me! I love her soooo much and can't wait to meet my sweet little Maddie!!! SOON! Here are some pics of the earth's newest angel!!!

Daddy is already wrapped around MY finger :)
