Latest Carving Project (Not finished yet)

This is my latest carving project. It’s not finished but its just a tulip carving that I spent some time creating. The pictures are really grainy becaused they are off of my phone, not because my carving isn't good :)

Happy 3rd Birthday, Matt!

Matt celebrated his 3rd birthday this past week. We had fun shaped pancakes for breakfast. Then we met Josh for lunch at Chic-fil-a where he got to drink chocolate milk and play on the playset (2 of his faves). He was excited for his friends to come over, for balloons, and new toys….but to my surprise he was VERY excited for his birthday cake Smile (He must have a mom that really gets into cakes or something). So he to got to help make the cake and icings with me. And even help decorate. He picked out which toys to put on his cake, and we even had to have a practice candle blowing before the party. It warmed my heart that my little man enjoyed doing one of my favorite kitchen past times with me!

Thank you all for coming or wishing Matt a Happy Birthday!




Matt, thank you for being the cute, sweet, and smart little boy you are! You bring so much joy to our lives and family everyday. We love you Matt!

Home Remodeling in 2008

So I thought I'd give you a little insight into our home remodeling back in 2008 when we purchased our home. The following 4 posts contain links to videos kind of documenting the remodeling we did. They are out of order, sorry but thought it might be fun to revisit our home construction since its been 3 years this month that we moved in. just click on the picture to see each video.

Once there was good weather

Once upon a time it was the end of March and the weather was awesome. As you can tell from the pictures, it was good enough for Heather to get a sweet sunburn on her legs and arms. Unfortunately the last week the weather has taken a turn for the worse. It’s snowed or rained the last 5 days which is sad because we finally got our fence installed in our backyard (which means we can now just send Matt out back to run around without worrying about him getting lost or stolen or something). Hopefully the weather turns soon so that when family comes out the end of this month we can play outside.
