|Location of old entrance - right in the middle of the living room wall.|
|New entrance, where the coat closet used to be.|
|Here is her messy room seen through the new doorway |
and the air mattress that Rory used all week.
|See how that dirt tracks up and over to the left? |
That's where the entrance to Kathryn's room used to be.
|Uncle Rory - earning his room & board for the week. =) |
Just kidding, he was good company and willing to help.
|Our baby loves the bath more than any of our other kids.|
He bounces up and down and gets super excited every time.
Thursday - The sun came out briefly and it was warm enough to play outside. The kids and Grandma Carol had races down the driveway all morning. David slept all day - that's how you know he's really sick because he actually stays in bed.
Friday - Grandma flew home and Uncle Rory found an apartment.
Saturday - Rory, David, and I finished assembling the swing set the kids got for Christmas from Grandma Carol -- we wanted to have it set up before she came, but the weather had been bad, or David was out of town or sick. I read the instructions and let the guys do the hard work.
Sunday - Ward Conference this week. I was a bit nervous because the stake leaders sat and observed Primary the whole time. Then I went to ward council and had to give the spiritual thought with the whole Stake Presidency there. At church we found out my friend's little boy had broken his leg the night before. She's one of my counselors in the Primary presidency. Last week, my secretary's son had an emergency appendectomy. I'm starting to get a little nervous that one of my kids will be in the ER next week. =) I hope not.
Today - We had the best weather (near 60 degrees) that we've had since early November. The kids didn't have school today, so we enjoyed playing and working outside most of the day. They helped me wash all the windows in our family room inside and out. They played on the swing set and in the mud. I took advantage of the warmer weather to do a little spray painting (it has to be at least 55 degrees and you have to do it outside). A friend recently gave me an old chandelier that she didn't need anymore. It was in great condition, but was that shiny brass color - so I spray painted it to an "Oil-rubbed bronze" color aka black with golden flecks. Now it will match our new door knobs and soon-to-be newly painted other light fixtures. =) I also spray painted our mail box dark blue. It was previously a rusting aluminum color. David had the day off - so he helped out around the house in the morning, then went into his office for the rest of the day. He says he gets the most work done on days like that because he doesn't get interrupted nearly as often.
|I need to paint the door still.|
|He stood up here all by himself. |
He likes playing in the kitchen (this one AND mine).
