Here's some random details from our lives lately. If I were, you know, a blogger, I would probably devote multiple posts to each of these things... but I'm lazy, so they're all smooshed together here.
1. This Picture:
I'm not sure at what point you declare an accident prone 2 1/2 yr old girl potty trained - but I think that we're probably somewhere in that territory.
2. Jonas turned 4
We had a networked minecraft party at Grandpa's school. It was so much fun and Jonas loved it! All the cousins loved it too. An unseen effect from this party is that all the cousins are addicted and now require intervention. At leas they had fun with it for a little while. :)
3. We got a dog!
Introducing our cute little Molly. She's a Lhasapoo Sheltie mix, which we're pretty sure is the sweetest combination because she's been awesome.
She's getting big so fast. Kinda makes me sad, but it's also fun that she's learning so much.
4. Jonas loves Pokemon.
He reads this book constantly.
5. Current favorite game
6. Gwen's watching me
Caught her with a crayon in her hair today. haha, I didn't even have a pen in my hair today, but she must have noticed me do it and then filed it away for later. A little scary. I feel like my parenting grace period is over. They're too observant.
7. Happy Birthday Russell
He's such a good dad, husband, and friend.
I've been avoiding the kitchen for months, and it's because everything hiding behind those doors was a crazy mess. It's amazing how goooood it feels to have these three places organized. I just may cook again.
Saw spices in drawers at Ikea. genius. This is a game changer folks.
Don't let this simple picture fool you, one day ago, you would have no idea how messy under the sink can get. Picture about a million grocery bags along with other unmentionables.
9. Halloween decorations
Not done yet - but it's a fun start. The kids totally love it.
Our spooky halloween tree where we'll remember costumes of halloweens past.
10. Board and Batten and Painting up the wazoo
Holy cow. This project took me five solid days. Cutting, measuring, caulking, priming painting. But I think it's going to be great. I still need to make some more changes, but it's coming along (see halloween pic above, which is not an accurate color representation, but gives you an idea).
