Questions answered

We borrowed Hawkins enclosed trailer and put all of the livingroom furniture in it and laid the carper (Dad and Eric) in the livingroom on Tuesday night until 7 pm while mom and I moved furniture around in my bedroom and got the old carpet up and the staples out of it. Then Eric and I moved all the furniture out of our bedroom and made the livingroom a bedroom (the kids LOVED that) for Tuesday night. Eric and I also laid the pad on Tuesday night. Then dad came back over in the am on Wednesday and he and I laid carpet from 8 until 10 when Eric showed up to stretch and kick, etc (all the hard work) and mom and I cleaned other areas of the house. I love it. It looks really good next to the hard wood which was kind of a shot from the hip because I kept forgetting to take a sample of my hard wood with me. The other bedrooms don't have new carpet. Eric says next time we are hiring it done. I tried to talk him into this time but he wouldn't talk-he's never laid carpet before and never will again. I have totally rolled in it, smelled it, kissed it, wanted to marry it. It's so great. I can't wait for everyone to see it! As for furniture. Even my yucky couches look good on my new carpet. Eric made the statement that now we need new furniture so I'm all over that. We are looking on Craigslist.

My typical day

This is who I spend my time with all day. Yes, Great Waterton

Sir Handel (I think, because he looks alot like Thomas??)
And the short, skinny guy who at the moment needs a hair cut, Breky. Occassionally he throws in Lightning McQueen, Mater, and some other side kicks but most the time it's Thomas and his friends.

A boy's brain?

I just don't understand a boy's brain. It is so confusing to me. I'm at a loss when it comes to why boys do the things they do.Lastest adventure...burying treasure. Yes he found a shovel and he dug through the snow to the frozen ground and buried a box that had marty gras beads in it. He said, "I told you I was going to go bury treasure." I told next time he buried treasure it better be out in the field and not in my yard. Oh and don't worry, his little brother was there to witness the whole thing. Bode is being sure to pass on the knowledge of his boy brain to his little brother!! And Mijken is excited about another boy!!

Bode was trying to knock an icycle off the edge of the house and here's what happened to his glove. Yep, he threw it on the roof. "Well, I wasn't trying to throw it on the roof, Mom." Really then why did you throw it on the roof???

Still snowing!!

And I'm so grateful for American Eagle, Columbia, Costco and Peak Performance for all my nice warm clothes!! We were finally able to make it outside to build a snowman. I need one of those wooden snowman kits that we all made a couple of years ago for RS. Every year we are scrounding around for carrot noses, coal eyes, scarves and buttons. Frosty with Bode's head.
