Was it funnel cake overload or something stronger? Thanks sis for sharing your fair photos!
Christmas Eve, the little one developed a lovey snotty nose but she didn't seem to let it bother her too much. Christmas morning was fun, she certainly got the hang of ripping the paper off the boxes quickly! With a little help of course...
I don't think that there are many toys for her age group that we don't own now between the two sets of grandparents! Can we say spoiled?
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! This weekend's activity is to finish the outdoor patio and to get the house tidied up a bit. Now that the holiday is over it is time to pack it all up until next year. I need the extra space the Christmas tree takes up for all the new toys. There is nothing I love more than having a house that looks like a toy store threw up in it! So until next time, have a great day!
Who would have thought in sleepy little Summerville we could have such excitement!
In other news, the wildlife around here is trying to take over our house. Last night hubby was headed out the front door with the baby when he came racing back in the house telling me "quick hold the baby!" WTF?! I wondered "It's a snake!" he says. Sure enough as you can see from the picture below this damn snake was trying its best to make its merry way into my house!
You can almost feel the warmth of the fire in this video. Hubby had it really blazing, so much so the next next day when he went to clean it out there were still hot coals smoldering! Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Brother in law also gave hubby a hand, which I am thankful for, with the outdoor fireplace that has been an ongoing project.
It is now almost complete, here's hoping that we don't burn down the neighborhood the first time we use it!
Now that the actual fireplace is almost done the job of landscaping around it must begin. This morning we went and picked out the stone to make the patio with. Hopefully our backs can handle moving the 1 and 1/2 ton of stone hubby is on his way home with. My next blog post may be from the hospital bed as I recuperate...
Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)
Hope ya'll are having a great day!
Big brother Trey, enjoyed Evelyn's sunglasses. I think everyone likes putting those on except Evelyn!
Since it rained Saturday afternoon and evening the boys needed to burn off some energy for the long ride home so we went to the aquarium this morning to entertain them. I think even Evelyn had fun!
Hubby started with a first course of fried mushrooms. Yummy! Mommy got a huge plate of ribbon fries loaded with cheese, sour cream and bacon!!!! MMMMMmmmm! (not pictured because I couldn't get my hands into those fries fast enough!)We took Evelyn to see the farm animals. I think she was overwhelmed by the lovely smells because she seemed very unimpressed!
After the sugar high wore off the rest of the weekend was fairly uneventful. Hubby has started another new project, an outdoor fireplace. So after 3 trips to Lowes and about 20 bags of cement I now have what looks to be the beginning of a mausoleum in my backyard! Apparently this is the base of the whole project but I have decided it would be best not to comment further until this project is completed!
Can you see the excitement on her face? We were very lucky we only had to wait about an hour and 10 minutes for our turn. Everyone in line was very nice, we also ran into our neighbors and several clients from my work. After it was all said and done we of course got our badge of honor, our "I Voted" stickers which mommy and Evelyn show off proudly! Doesn't Evelyn look thrilled!We can't wait for the election results and will be glued to the TV until the results are in! So here's hoping our candidate wins!!!!
