Projects and Pigtails

Over the last week we have been able to get a few of the "big" projects done around here. We are planning Lord willing to move to the new place the first week of June. We were originally hoping to be moved in by this last weekend. But with the nasty flu bug the week before last we pushed it out to June so as not to share the bug hopefully! It's worked out better anyway as we will have a lot more done and ready on this place now. The back fence boards needed to be replaced so that became the project of last week. And with the beautiful sunshine we had a great time doing it!!


Almost halfway. And I didn't get time to upload an after but it's finished as of Saturday!!

Julabeans was a trooper and slept a lot mostly. But also got a chance to enjoy the sunshine a little too.

The boys had a blast being out in the yard so much!!

"Small Bear" ( aka Leroy) "pinched" grass and dirt for quite a while.

Gettin' there!

The three Musketeers conferring over their "logging operation" I believe it was.

Bugs checking to see how tall he is.

And then comes the pigtails! Her hair has partial curl but the ends are straight so it's always a bit on the wild side. I ran into Walmart for wallpaper border and found these cutest little mini clips and rubber bands! This was the result:

"Look what my Mom did to my hair"

"Might as well show it off"

"Right side"

"And here's the left side"

"are you laughing at me?"

"I guess it was sorta funny"

She is 4 months today and has been such a sweet little person. She's seems to be always laughing silently at her brothers. She occasionally finds her little voice and has very gurgly, jolly little conversations with whoever is chatting with her. She is up to about 15 lbs and still a little snuggle bug! Pretty much, all around, sweetness, our "tiny lady" as she's called some times! So we start into another busy week! I was able to get the boys room painted and new wall border on over the weekend too. Something that had to be done before we could rent the house as the old wall border had gotten torn. Very nice to have two of the biggest things out of the way!!! And we're that much closer to being out in the country. Not that it won't still have it's challenges but I'm looking forward to the quiet... well as quiet as it gets with three boys around. But if you've every lived in the country you know what I mean. Well it's wash day so I better get going. Later.

Ahh! the wonderful feeling of getting big projects done and out of the way!! And the joys of SUNSHINE! there's nothing like being able to just let the kids play outside without having to worry about them freezin their tootsies. They can think up so many things to entertain themselves and it makes it so much easier to get sumpin' done.
LOVE your "tiny lady" with her hair all purty. :D pigtails are such fun!
Hope moving goes well. wish we could be there to help... guess we'll have to come visit before too long and see ya all settled in.
P.S. what kinda word is "slucky" ?!?! thats the verification word of the day.
