Ok - cant stand it.... More Pics!!!

I know some of you will think that I am crazy but oh well :)- As soon as I saw this house I knew it was perfect for us. I stayed closed mouth about it to family and friends for a while because one it was 60 miles from where we are now, didnt know if they would go down on price, and our taste isnt like anyone elses.

To tell the truth I totally had my hopes up.....its all I can think about! I tried to act like I didnt care one way or the other but John saw right thru it. We have looked at so many the last few years with no luck.

So heres the house....

Great News!!

So we have been looking for a house for a long time - We rent here and it has been great but 1.) we are just throwing our money away, 2.) we live on a VERY busy highway and have lost pets :( The kids cannot just go play in the yard 3.) we cannot do anything here to improve the place. 4.) we live on everyones way to town and people just stop in ALL THE time. I can go on and on.

Well - I finally got fed up and stopped looking a few weeks ago. We have a limited budget (one income, 7 kids) I would rather move closer to the church we want to go to. The only problem is Johns job. He works for the highway department and his highway barn is only 5.5 miles from our house. If we moved to the area where we have been looking he would have to drive 120 miles a day for a while....Like up to 2 to 5 years! Well we found out for the head of human resources that they are opening up transfers again starting in January thru March 2013!! That means only 5 - 7 months of driving!! We can handle the extra gas that long!!*****Update**** Just found out that it may only be about 6 weeks or so!

Now we just need to find a little running car.....

Oh and did I mention we found the house, just by chance.....Its AWESOME! Pictures coming soon but heres a few of the out buildings....

So much to come.....!!!!

2 eggs
¼ yellow onion minced
½ cup flour (I use ½ white, ½ wheat)
½ c fresh goat mozzarella (or store bought)
SMALL handful fresh basil chopped fine
Pinch of sea salt
Sunflower oil for frying

Beat eggs – add in rest if indg. Mix very well –
put 2 tbsp oil on griddle or pan
when pan is hot use ¼ cup of mix and treat it like a pancake.

Good cold too with fresh tomatos -- I serve with corn relish when hot
