Jarrett's wardrobe choices!

The other night I had to work and Jarrett got off work early, but had to go get some cows in or something so Cheryl said that she would watch Ryder for a little bit (she is always so great to help me out!). I was running behind like usual and I wanted to hurry and vote before going to work, so Jarrett stopped by the house to help me get things ready. I had him change Ryder's clothes. He came out with a onesie that he had bought that says, "My Pee Pee's Bigger Than Yours." I told him that Ryder could not wear that and to get a different one, but Jarrett assured me that it was alright cause he would have his sweatshirt over the top. I didn't have time to argue so away we went.
Well Cheryl had to take Ryder with to a viewing and like always Ryder spit up on himself. When he did this his sweatshirt had to come off, exposing his graphic onesie for all to see! Not the most appropriate outfit for a viewing. I'm so embarrassed I can't believe I'm repeating this story! Cheryl probably is too! Never the less Jarrett is in trouble for that one and will no longer get to choose what Ryder wears out in public.

I'd post a picture of the pretty onesie, but my camera has come up missing!

On Friday Jarrett and I finally closed on our house. It has been the longest process in the world. We started working on buying this house in June, but quickly found out that we were dealing with a very dishonest guy.
We closed on it once in August. It needed a lot of work so we started frantically working on it to have it all done before the wedding. We got the master bedroom painted and the new carpet laid and Ryder's room painted. The day before the wedding we moved our bed in and a few clothes, then later that night we found out that the title company had screwed up and the guy owed more than we bought it for and he wasn't going to pay the difference.
We had no where else to go so we have been half way living there (we sleep there, but spend most of our time at my parents house). We had to go about buying it a different way. We have run into problem after problem, but on Friday it finally became ours (hopefully!). I'm still a little nervous that they are going to say there are more problems. I can't wait until it is all done and we have more furniture than our bed and a few lawn chairs and when we can watch something besides a DVD and I can cook, clean and do laundry at my own house! I can't wait!
