Well, I once again got super busy with my life and left you all hanging out in the dust! UGH! I'm sorry for being so MIA lately. I will once again update as to what we've been up to...

Harper and Casey have had their doctor appointments and now all of us (except for DH) are sick....probably picked something up at the clinic. UGH! We're doing really good with school for Eva....not so well with Casey. ;) He is a stinker!!! Harper is still the happiest baby EVER! :) Umm...let's see what else I've been up to. I joined a coupon train in my area and have been "hunting" some coupons. I've been trying to get the house cleaned (if that's possible). Our house is still under construction. Our puppy is still an awesome pup! And we're starting a potty chart for Eva and Casey (Eva still goes #2 in her undies). And we're also planning Friday night family night!!!! Yay!!!!! DH wants to do every Friday as family night.

Ok, now I need to get started on Eva's hat (practice hat for her costume). I'll chat with you all again....hopefully soon!

Busy times! We're also sick. Boooo.

I hope Casey will settle down for schooling and the potty chart will be just the trick for both kids. Tim's doing really well since we started his chart.

Yay for family night! :)

I completely understand how busy things can get!

Renovations are getting "close" to being done. UGH! It's just taking forever!!!!!! We had hoped to be done by October, but that's not going to happen now. My dad can only come here on weekends to do the mudding and sanding on the walls, so that is really slowing us down. Plus, we need to go purchase the wood for making the trim (which we should have done this last week). My dad should be here on Friday to get some work done....hopefully! DH got the doors all done, so we'll be able to slap those on as soon as the time is ready. :) So, I think th next step is for my dad to finish getting the rooms ready to paint. Then once paint is up we can put up trim....then carpet....then doors and closets.....then we can move in!

Ok, time to get off the computer. I hope to get Eva's practice hat sewn up today and Harper is making angry sounds from her bassinet right now. :)

I'm sure only working on weekends makes it go by slowly. We are thinking of redoing our mudroom and turning it into a dining room. I REALLY want to do it. But I have to keep suggesting to dh until he starts to realize we need a dining room. He is starting to realize if we have one, then I can invite his family over for dinner more often :)

We didn't really have a dining room when I was young, just a kitchen and then the table close by. I guess you could call that the open-concept kitchen/dining area. ;)

Our current dining room has enough space for the computer desk on one side of the table and the bookshelves on the other, plus an open spot for walking from front to back door (through the living room). It's too bad the kitchen is small, though.
