This is for you Cindy...

One Year Olds

Here are some of my favorites from shoots this week. These little guys are cousins.

Just call me Bobbi Villa

After watching me put together several "assembly needed" pieces of furniture, hang shelves, mirrors and pictures over the last few days, Cooper said...."Mom, I think you should be a worker instead of a camera lady!"

Just what I needed. For my birthday (yes, if you can believe my birthday passed without so much of a mention here on my blog) my husband got me a manicure, pedicure and a massage. So that is how I spent my afternoon today, being pampered and trying to forget about my never-ending to do list. Then I met the girls out at the country club for supper and a friendly round of Texas hold 'em. (I was the first one out...Tim will have to give me some poker lessons.)
After spending a week trying to get the hot tub up and running (and then having to call the fix-it man and pay a hefty repair bill) it is now fully functional and the kids can finally have those hot tub parties they've been planning since we moved in. Last weekend we spent lots of time with friends, made a trip to the lake and Zorbaz, and did a few projects around the house. Yesterday we spent a steamy afternoon at the pool and a gorgeous evening at the Redhawks game. I guess I have been lazy and have no pictures of any of these events, so I took a photo of the cute Matt Cullen bobble-heads we got at the baseball game.

You don't realize how often you use your kitchen sink...until you don't have one!

Moving ADD

That's my self-diagnosis. I cannot complete a project...I will be working on something in one room, and walk into another room to get something and see all the things that need to be done in that room and start doing those, and then go to another room for something else and the same thing happens...all day long! The good news is we are all moved in...our stuff is here anyway. Not necessarily put away, but here. All of the painting and flooring is done, and this week will be lots of cabinetry and counters and plumbing work and hopefully the rest of the electrical. The kids will be coming back from "Camp Grandmas" where they have been all last week (with Grandma Sandi the first half and Grandma Laverne the second half) so I have been working hard to get their rooms ready. On the agenda for tomorrow is to finish the basement and clean out and organize the garage!
