Just can't get enough of these.

We are learning that the simplest things make Bear laugh like crazy. I'm lovin' every minute of it. And more than happy to be a complete idiot if this is the reaction that I get. I love being a mom. Thank you Connor for being the goofy one this time around.

Helping Daddy.

Sam was helping his dad finish this cabinet in their house while they were away over the last month and Connor, of course, wanted to help Daddy. Here are some pictures of the manly men doing their thing. Power tools included.

A House Update.

Hopefully, this is the week when it all comes together. At the beginning of last week, we found out that we would need to put carpet and tile down before we could get our loan closed, due to some silly FHA regulations. So anyway, we've spent the better part of the week getting things ready for the appraiser.

Thanks to a friends dad and brother, the carpet was all laid today and we finished up the laminate tiling on Saturday night. Since carpet got laid early, we did some painting early as well. So here are all the "before" pictures of the house. And the one "after" picture of the Den. This room is just about ready for furniture so I'm sharing it earlier than the rest that still need painting and other touches before we move in.

The Backyard (Killer, I know!)

The floor to ceiling Pink Living Room. (I'm thinking of keeping it this way....)

The kitchen. So glad that I don't have to do anything in here but update appliances.

Moose ears in my dining room(Don't ask. That's for you, Dad.)

The Den into the dining room.
My craft room(Before the flooring went in)
The Fruit Room(Hello, Food Storage)

The Blue Room in the basement

The Other Pink the basement
The finished Den. Woot Woot!

The finished basement floor. This took forever, btw.

So now, hopefully, the next time I post anything, we will be the owners of this home that we have already put lots of dollars and hours of labor into.
Prayers are appreciated:)

Pictures for Gramma Bee

The boys were all fancied up this Sunday in clothes from Gramma Bee so I thought I'd post them here for all to see.
