Playing in the Backyard....

These were taken Sunday afternoon....

Isn't my Charley a pretty girl? Even if she is a little tired...

Even Josh practiced his swing after playing ball with Charley and Bogey.

If anyone noticed Grady didn't have his picture made while playing....This is because that is a little like exercise to him. (I know everyone has noticed that he is a little chubby) He hung out on the deck with me while I took pictures.

As If December isn't busy enough.....

I know that most people think that December is one of the busiest times of the year......But at my house we are really looking forward to it.

After 8 long months of trying to get pregnant......We are!!!! The baby should be due December 28th.

So far I have only been a little more hungry and a lot more tired. For those of you that have done this before, any advice or tips would be very helpful.
Please keep us in your thoughts during this time.

We have a kitchen?

For those of you that know me well, you know I never cook. People often tell me that I have a kitchen, just because it came with the house....

Saturday night was an exception....Our kitchen was used...I asked Josh to cook spaghetti.

(Jane this is your fault because you talked about cooking this for Danny, and my taste buds were set)

So on the rare occasion that food is being prepared in the house.....Everyone gets excited and helps out

This is also a good view of not only how excited the babies are, but check out the size difference....That alone makes for a photo opt.

Before & After.....The Finished Product

Our floor is done!

All we, (well I.... the rest is my part) have to do now is touch up the white paint on the baseboards and add the wood trim.

Here is part of the process.....

The left side is the new and the right is the ugly old floor that I discovered that night at 10:30. I pretended to be OK with this for awhile. As I mentioned earlier..this was REALLY UGLY.

As all good neighbors do, Andrew and Noah helped.....

Even Grady helped with the project......

And finally we have the finished product.....

I am very thankful for all of the people that helped out on this project.....Mainly Josh. I am very proud of his hard work and the way this turned out. (He doesn't know it yet, but call me and we will discuss the going rate for flooring if anyone needs some work done)
I wonder what next bright idea I will come up with.....I will have to think about it and let you all know.

Our Project....

Just wanted to let everyone know why I have been busy for the last several days, we are doing a little home improvement.

I had the bright idea one night about 10:30 that I was sick of our carpet and that the original hardwoods must be under there somewhere. Well they were, under some really ugly linoleum that has been down since the beginning of time.

So after I saw that, then I decided that we MUST have new flooring. It has taken me several months to choose the new floor. (I was really overwhelmed at the number of choices, they should give people like me no more than 3 options)

Several weeks ago I found the floor.....Then my next dilemma was dealing with rain and finding time when Josh could have some help to get this done. We are now on the downhill stretch. I will post pictures of the entire project after this is finished (which may be tonight or tomorrow) so all can view the finished product.

For the record, if my marriage has survived this I really think we can go the distance. Anyone who can put up with my late night decisions, length of making up my mind, and my lack of patience to have this finished must be a keeper.
