Here are a few of my recent projects around the house. Please excuse the giant hole in the kitchen wall. It's on the list.
I'm not sure what order they will be in: this phone posts faster than our poor computer. Fruit basket. Heavy duty. Now in red. Pots and pans. Black upgrade from in laws (thanks again!). Like to hang around. Mantle pictures. Need to be hung on the wall. Wall-O-pictures. Added to. Still awaiting the ones on the mantle. Little projects. (not pictured are as follows) We now have a working dryer. We were waiting on a breaker. Breaker is in. No one got electrocuted. Win. One more sheet of drywall on the South wall. Master bedroom green accent wall. Trees trimmed. Fort built from said tree limbs. Two loads of wood cut and hauled. Two to go. Lots of work, but there has been some progress. Just no pictures till now.enjoy.

When I went out to check the mail I found this note on our door. It was a nice reminder that we are doing good things. I don't know who left the note because they didn't sign it but it sure brightened my day.Thanks neighbor.

Maybe it's our fault for nicknaming him Menace. But it seemed to fit and he's grown even more into it now. Don't get me wrong here, I love my kid. DEARLY. And the thought that he is likely the last baby in our house saddens my heart so I try to hold on to the little bit of babyhood/toddlerhood before full blown boyhood. He's so sweet. Always wanting to give hugs and kisses and ugga-muggas. He loves to play with the trains (when his brothers let him). Loves to read (which warms my heart). Loves to snuggle. *sigh* I know it won't last.
But I'm not so sure I'm going to survive this phase. I hope it's a phase. I hope we have language soon, perhaps something more than Charlie No! I'm pretty sure when he goes to write his name in Kindergarten he's going to tell his teacher his name is Charlieno.
That is, IF we make it to 5. I know it's a blink of an eye. "The days are long but the years are short." No kidding.
Till then- please forgive me if you hear "Charlieno" instead of "Hello?" when I answer the phone.
