it's all about the neighborhood

we probably could have gotten a newer house.
we probably could have gotten a little "fancier" home.
we probably could have found a house that needed a few less "updates".
BUT, we probably could NOT have found a better house for us or a better neighborhood!
we absolutely LOVE our house.
 are there some things we want to/will change?
Oh yes, but those make it OURS completely and we wouldn't have it any other way.
and our neighborhood?
this house could have been a 1 bedroom shack and i think we would have moved in just to live in the neighborhood. so many kids everywhere, and kids with such wonderful parents as well.
so many wonderful neighbors and new friends!
we are so so grateful!
And your going to see the cousins out there as well, they love coming to play too!
we are missing about half the kids that are usually out to play from the neighborhood but still, this awesome.
we get LOTS of fabulous art all over our street...

we get the electronics working sometimes too-although this is actually pretty rare.
we get hide-and-seek workin'
 we've got skating going on...
hill rolling...

we've got onlookers... 
and even cheerleaders!
it's so much fun!
