Update in Pictures

Miss M.... she reminds me of my cousin, Sarah G, in this picture. Granny, Mom... Dad.. do you see what I mean?

Plinking on the piano...

Keagan LOVES to play in the kitchen. I have a gate to keep him out when I'm cooking. If he can get in, he usually heads for the fridge to play with the magnets.

N & M enjoyed playing with playdough. Our kitchen table is like the hub of our home. We spend a lot of time playing there, reading there, learning there... (even though we are not structured homeschoolers). I covered their side of the table with contact paper and put papers with ABCs underneath.

As I previously mentioned, our friends Ashley and John (and John's mother, Chris), stayed with us during Hurricane Gustav. Here are a few photos from our extended weekend with them!

The kids assisted John in baking a DELICIOUS cake.

Ashley watches on as Keagan gleefully plays with spoons. (You should have seen his face when he learned that banging them together makes a cool noise!)

We all played Xbox for a bit. Fun!

Ms. Chris was SO nice! She treated me to a pedicure (which, I really needed... I think they had to file/cut off half of my toes!). My feet are on the bottom... btw.

A parting shot.. before they left!

Hubby and myself

I shaved Nolyn's mohawk today. Here's a picture of him "fixing" one of our handmade cabinets.

I cannot believe my little pun'kin is going to be A YEAR OLD in ONE WEEK! AGGH! That's one of my personal art pieces behind him. It's now above my piano.
Anyway..... things are going great here! We feel so incredibly blessed to be in this beautiful home, close to family, and surrounded by friends!

i was thinking about doing my toe nails the other day. But winter is coming, they're going to spend the next few months in boots and slippers!

I think I might pass. LOL
