Broken Camera pictures


I was able to retrieve a few pictures from the camera. They aren't the best, but they'll help give an idea of what we're up to. Check out Rachel's bangs! She's very proud of herself.

And Aaron is loving the solid foods. The only thing we've had a problem with is green beans-- after eating them, he went nearly a week without a messy diaper, and our sweet babysitter was there to clean up (another reason to love date night :). Aaron is also sitting up quite nicely--and he's cute.

After we first moved in , I made a cardboard house for the kids to play with out of the empty boxes. Christian and I kept saying we needed to throw it away--it was in the living room and kept getting in our way, but the kids always played with it. This week, the kids wanted to re-design their house, and the end result was, well, the end of the house. The wanted me to keep cutting until there was nothing left!

And then there is our other project--painting the formerly purple living room. It started out small enough-- two walls needed primer. We chose a color, then realized that although only two walls were purple, the whole room needed to be painted. Then-- we didn't like the color (too green--we thought it was brown-ish). So , we picked a new color and repainted just one coat, hoping to not have to do more. Then we realized that we needed to do the hallway, as well. So we did one coat, and stopped. So--we're still not done, we still have a lot to do, and we don't want to do it. I do like the new look so much better--except for the blue painter's tape! Wish we could finally finish...
And while most of the snow is gone now, here's a picture of our backyard on one of the windy, snowy days.

You just have to be done painting by our next visit! Can't wait to see you all again.

Wow, fun stuff! Isn't it strange that both Aaron and Albany had issues with green beans? Must be a family/born in September thing! Good luck with the painting!

Hmmm...maybe you should wait to finish painting until Jonathon & Deann come--then you'll have help!!! Sorry, Deann,couldn't resist that one! Anyway, it's good to see pictures. I can't believe how big your kids are getting!

We made a box house and our kids loved it but after a "did not get to the bathroom fast enough" accident it ended its life too. Glad to hear the snow is letting up.
