Mark it on your calendar...Nov. 7!!!

We just found a home! It's still here in a South Jordan. It's a super sweet town home! We are so dang excited! It'll be done at the latest on Nov. 7. The builder was so awesome. The people before us just backed out so the builder is giving us the place for the standard price instead of having to pay for all the upgrades that the previous people had put in it. He's also going to throw in a way nice fridge and wood blinds for the entire house. He's also working with the construction supervisor to get everything expedited so that we can move in sooner. They need to get the carpet, appliances, and counter tops in. It's 3 bed rooms, 2 1/2 baths, 2 car garage, unfinished basement. It's really nice. I'll take pictures soon and post them.

Gavin walks now! He's so cute! He walked around the house for the first time on Monday. He's still not comfortable doing it on his own. He'll follow us around, though. He saw a baby chicken the other day and called it a duck. It was so cute! He loves to say 'cheese' now. String cheese is his favorite food, besides formula.

I just read Crank by Ellen Hopkins. It was one of the most intense/darkest books I've read, but I still really liked it. The story is mostly based off of the author's daughter's life. It's about a girl who is visiting her drug addicted father for the first time in 8 years. While she's visiting him, she is introduced to crystal meth. The story is about her addiction to it and how it affected her entire life. The book is written in poetry which adds to the intensity of the book. Through the poetry, Hopkins describes the addiction as if you were experiencing the emotions right along with the protagonist. I really enjoyed it, but then again, I always enjoy books that deal with the psyche. I would definitely recommend this book. The poetry isn't hard to follow at all. It's a quick book to read, also. It took me about 4 hours.
