So much for that easy transition into winter. We welcomed a couple inches of snow yesterday. Which was immediately followed by the purchase of a new snow-blower. Tyler had a blast in the snow- Jenna, not so much.
We had plenty of fun indoors too. We did plenty of reading- here’s Tyler reading a new book from Aunt Loiy.
Christmas! I may have listened to a little Christmas music this weekend, just in the car, for a brief moment. I can’t wait!
Grandma and Grandpa came over today for a little bit and they did some more reading.
We’re running out of room in those chairs. Here is little Jenna taking up a bunch of room- such a big girl.
Work keeps us busy but we have had a little time here and there to work on the house. There are still plenty of projects to work on, but this one is almost done. There is a little insert next to the fireplace that used to have a tv stand in it since our dining room used to be their living room. We turned it into a little dry bar, thanks to help from Grandpa Rodney. He put his woodworking skills to work and made us a custom wine rack. I still need a little shelf so I can stack the bottles, and I need to put the wine glasses in. Looking better though.
As soon as I get more décor up, I will do a before and after post. It’s slowly coming a long. I did get a new mini-coat rack by the garage door.
Ignore the pile of stuff by the fireplace. Actually, if you come to our house, it is full of piles of stuff. I’m needing a little more organization in my life, that’s nothing new. Anyone have any suggestions for what to do with the fireplace? Like above it? Some sort of mantel? So many things to do still.
That’s all for this update, in case I don’t get one in before Thanksgiving- have a good one!
Oh wait- Halloween! I missed those updates. Here’s our little monkey and shark. Jenna made it one house, Tyler made it to 3 or 4 but then we had to take away most of his candy because it had peanuts in it. I’m really going to hate that holiday.
