Photos of our new home...



I promised photos of our move, so here they are. The only room I really have photos of all cleaned up is Gabby's room. Someday I may take photos of the other rooms, but until then you can see what it looked like after all the boxes were moved in.

Where have the Tennessee Gudmundsons gone?

I think a better question is where we haven't been (besides on the internet). Since May we have ... moved to our new home, been to lots of hospital & doctor visits, found out we were going to have a second child (not my idea, I promise, one was plenty for me), gotten new callings at church, started Gabby's official first year of kindergarten, learned how to cook some pretty tasty sodium-free foods, found out that second child was to be a girl (little Izzie will be here sometime between late December and early January), had Tim's parents in town staying with us, celebrated a couple birthdays, won the lottery (okay, so that didn't really happen, but I wanted to see if you were really paying attention), and washed lots & lots of laundry. I think that sums up our lives lately. We don't have internet in our house at the moment, so that's why we haven't been on here in several months. But I promise to try to post an update at least once a month till the baby comes. We love you all!

Our Fun New Diet...


Okay, it's really not fun, but it is new. Gabby was put on a sodium free diet. Basically, if it isn't naturally found in the food, like some veggies, she can't have it. Everything has to be bought specially for her or be home-made with out sodium. Did you know there are almost twenty different forms of sodium found in food other than just salt, like baking powder & baking soda. We read lots of food labels now, and most the time we decide it's much cheaper just to make it from scratch. I'm too lazy to grind my own peanut butter, so I fork out the money for it, but almost everything else she eats I have found a way to make with out any forms of sodium in them. I have even started making my own breads, thanks to a generous donation of a breadmaker from the Strickland family in our ward. My sister-in-law teased me by saying it was the Lord's way of telling me I have to cook, whether I want to or not. She's probably right, but it doesn't make me like cooking any more.

That's it for now. Maybe next week I will post some pictures of the outside.

Our Brand New Place...

...literaly, it's not even finished being built. We found a great place within walking distance from Tim's work, the church, & some shopping. It has three bedrooms, two baths, a good amount of storage space, and plenty of windows. We will also have a laundry closet again (which will hopefully be filled with a washer & dryer sometime soon). The place will be finished at the end of June, and we can move in July 1st. I took some photos, and we upload more as things progress. Right now there are just walls & doors.

Anyways, here is a grand tour (which requires a lot of imagination since it is still under construction). Here is the view of the living room when you enter. The kitchen is directly behind it and then the dining room.



Another view of the living room...



Our kitchen with the cabinets piled in the middle (I've been assured they will be put along the walls very soon)...



This is the view of the kitchen from the dining area...



Our dining area & back door...



The laundry closet that desperately needs a washer & dryer...



And last for today, one of two identical storage closets in the hallway...



For the rest of the photos, you will have to come back next week.

Tim & Gabby's Puppet Show

I filmed this at that Children's museum we went to a few weeks ago. The sound isn't the best, and there is a lot of background noise, but I still think it's pretty cute.

Easter Photos...



Here's our photos of Easter morning (a couple weeks late).
