He's Here!!!

Hunter Bill Reynolds was born on June 23rd!! He weighed 7 pounds 6.5 ounces and was 19.7 inches long!! He is super cute and is doing really good. We went to the doctor today and he weighed 7 pounds 10 ounces. When we left the hospital he weighed 6 pounds 14 ounces so he has gained almost a pound since then!! I will post more pictures later but for now here is a picture of our little man!!

More House!!

Well, the work on our house is finally finished!!!! We still have a few little things left but the major stuff is done!! Yay!!!! We had to put in new kitchen cabinets because there weren't any in the house (see pictures of it below) and so we just decided to redo the bathroom ones too so they would match. We also had to put new light fixtures in every room because there weren't any and there were a lot of missing doornobs so we put in new ones of those too. We also redid the carpet and tile so as you can see, pretty much everything in it is brand new!! It all looks really nice and we love it!!! Now we just have to paint but that is not going to happen right now and when it does, it will happen very slowly room by room.

Here is the family room before

After- We put some tile in the main walkway around it, before it was all carpet

The cabinets in the master bathroom before
After- We had them done the same as they were, but they are just newer and better cabinetsThe upstairs hall bathroom before After- New cabinets and tile
The living room before
After- We put in fans and extended the tile to make a walkway into the familyroom and kitchen
The downstairs bathroom before
After- We put in new tile, cabinets, granite countertop and new oil rubbed bronze sink, towel holders and toilet paper holders. (The shower fixtures will eventually be oil rubbed bronze too as well as all the fixtures in the entire house. That is another thing that will happen slowly because they cost a lot.)

Now we just need to get the loan completely finished and closed so we can start to work on getting furniture and stuff to fill up this big empty house!! (Something else that will be done slowly and bit by bit.)

Oh and for some other news, our baby boy is coming on Tuesday the 23rd!! That's only five days away!!! We can't wait!!

Memorial Weekend Campout

For memorial weekend we went camping in Greer with Clar's family. It was a lot of fun but it rained or hailed every day, multiple times each day so we spent a lot of time sitting under tarps so we wouldn't get wet. It was fun and relaxing to be able to get away for a couple of days especially since we haven't gone out of town in a long time. With me being eight months pregnant at the time camping wasn't exactly what I would have preffered but I was comfortable enough. We were planning to stay in a tent but when we got there someone had brought a camper trailer and it was all set up ready for us to use so that was very nice and that definately made the weekend a lot better I'm sure.

Nena & daddy

Nena with her cousins Heather & Stratford. She loved this stroller and would just ride in it all day long and did not want to get out.

It was my niece London's birthday & she was turning three so we celebrated with a pinata.

Clar and his family

Our family

Nena and her cousins that are all just a year or two older than her. Nena is starting to play with them really good its fun.

The whole gang

Nena & some of her cousins on the hammock

Nena holding her cousin Stratford on her lap. She loves him so much & is so cute with him. Hopefully she acts the same way to her little brother as she does to him!

One of my sister-in-law's mom came for a little bit and she took all these kids on a long walk. They had a lot of fun and it was nice to not have to watch Nena for a bit.
It was a fun weekend and we look forward to going again next year!
