Radiators, Nutcrackers, And Springy Snowman

Alex spent most of the day at MDO and I ran errands non-stop. We’d just finished our snack when Abram and Amber came to visit. Evidently my radiator needs a lot of work. Thank goodness the boys are good at “fixing”. Abram brought Alex a fireman nutcracker that has quickly become a favorite: Springy Snowman…

Wade’s Newest Toy

Wade is the proud new owner of an old drill press. Wade is always searching Craig’s List for old tools and has been looking for a drill press for months. We detoured (2 hours) on our drive to KY to look at it. We detoured on the way back to buy it. Wade is extremely…

    jealous!!! i have, at several points in my life, wanted a drill press. now isn’t one of those times (i don’t have too much time for too many projects…), but that is awesome!! perhaps when the boys give me a little more time to myself i’ll again wish i had a drill press 🙂

    Great find. The quality is hard to beat on older pieces like that.

Friends And Family

Alex and I spent the morning visiting Kate (my high school friend) and her family – Taylor, Anna, and Will. Alex played pretty well, but suddenly ran to the door and kept saying “home”. I loved the new word, but would have preferred to visit a little longer. We ran to Granny and Papa’s for…

Happy Turkey Day

Alex had a great time playing with all of Gram’s toys while major work was being done in the kitchen: Then we introduced Alex to the parade (he also learned to say “TV” today). He was interested for a few minutes before he was off exploring again: Alex quickly learned to say “Gram” and knew…

Woof Woof

Mega Bloks is an awesome company! We lost the little dog to our firestation set. I contacted the company to see how much a replacement would cost and they shipped me one for free. In the meantime we of course found our dog. Now we have a spare.
