Here are a few things I want to do this year....

Hello there friends!

I feel like my blogs lately are, "Hello! Sorry I suck at blogging, but I will try to be better." Obviously that isn't the case. So instead I am here to catch up on the things that have been going on.

We are about 2 1/2 weeks away from our house being done. We are soooooooo excited that it cannot come fast enough. We built our home with Hardrock Homes and I am so happy with the service and quality. Here are a few pictures!
They started installing cabinets this week. I am super excited for my kitchen!
Cody is excited about the kitchen as well, but he is just as excited about his bar downstairs.

Other great news... my sister, Brit had her baby girl, Isabella in April. It has been fun having a baby around. I babysat her last week for a few hours for Brit to go to a Dr appt. I forget how hard it is to just simply get in the shower or throw a load of laundry in with an infant. The girls are simply in love with her and argue on who gets to hold her first when she is over. The other night, Kylie was holding her and I heard her talking to her saying, "Hi Izzie, my name is Kylie. I am going to be your favorite cousin." So cute!
Other news, kids are doing well in school. They are certainly counting down that they have a week and a half left! I need to come up with some ideas to entertain them for the summer. I am only working 2 1/2 days a week during the summer, hopefully. The other day I was telling them that we were going to get passes to the waterpark and on days I have to work they could go with our friends. Kylie seemed to be confused and said, "You have to work during the summer?!" I guess that's the part about working that will be the hardest.

Speaking of work.... I really like my job. It's fun to work in an environment that is interesting, busy and social. Cody has been busy with his job and traveling quite a bit. I think he enjoys getting away right now as we are living with my parent. :)

New home!

We have now been living at my parents house for 3 weeks. We are anxiously awaiting the completion of the house. There is finally a light at the end of the tunnel. (Really it hasn't been all that bad. lol)
They started the foundation last week! They are starting to frame this coming week. We are driving the kids to Herriman to school so we get to go by and see it everyday. They are anticipating a late May closing date.

Dear blogging friends...

I feel terrible that I can't seem to keep up on my blog lately. We have so much going on at the DeNiro household that I would love to fill you in.

We are moving in a week and a half! (Whhhaaaaat? Time flies!) We purchased a new home in Herriman that will be built the next few months. In the meantime, we are renting out our existing home and moving in with my parents for a few months to save up some more money.
Another lame excuse on my lack of blogging: I got a part time job. :) Which, BTW I totally love! But I find I don't have alot of "downtime" anymore to sit on the computer. I may have even broke my facebook addiction.

Festival of Trees

Kylie performed at the Festival of Trees. She did such a good job! I love seeing all the performances.
I look at that middle picture of her and she looks so dang big! Where did my baby go?

After her performance, we like to look at the gingerbread houses. Cody (aka Mr. Grinch) doesn't like to look at the trees. Afterwards, we let the kids play around in the Kids Corner. They did a few Christmas crafts, fun games and even talked to one of Santa's elves in the phone booth!

Where did November go?

Hi friends (if anyone actually reads this!?) I had good intentions of keeping up on my blog all year (it was my New Years Resolution, afterall), but it didn't work out so well in October and November. Now it is December and I am behind. But this is my way of telling myself I WILL UPDATE MY BLOG. We are going on a family vacation this weekend to escape the snow.

I'm dreaming of this already.....
