$30 dollars anyone?

Jacob created this "imperial walker" this morning. For those Star Wars fans you know what this is. Jacob loves Star Wars. He has many figures and is constantly thinking about what he can build next to carry them around. He is pretty proud of this one. He said, "Mom, after I am done playing with this I think I will sell it to some other kid." I asked, "How much are you going to sell it for?" He confidently said, "Thirty dollars." Any takers?

Wondering why I haven't posted in 2 weeks?...
This is the reason!

I have been chasing my little Mason all over the house trying to give him medicine!!! He hates it and tries to hide when I mention it. He has been so sick the last two weeks. I have been to the doctor's office twice (edit... now three times) with him and up in the wee hours of the night for many nights. I finally think we have a handle on it so he was playing more today rather than clinging to my hip.

It makes me so sad when the kids are sick... I worry, I stress, I second-guess everything I thought I knew and I lose lots of sleep. I am so happy to see the end of this nearing... we had such a healthy summer...I am not looking forward to the sick season quickly approaching.

Happy 30th Chucky Ducky!

Heather's husband Chuck got hooked up this year with gifts. Thanks to Mine and Heather's clearance rack shopping. She got him all the things he has wanted for years... problem is... now I have to help her decide what to get him for Christmas.

By the way... my vote goes to keeping the beard!!! It just looks so warm and toasty! This is a 3 week beard, Mark and I want to see what a 7 week one looks like. :)

Projects, Projects, and more Projects...

So this is the time of year Heather and I take on more projects than we can handle. We do it every year so why change this year. It is becoming a tradition with the late nights leading up to Christmas. I am so excited for the holidays... all the smells, good food, music and family parties. Mason was up past his bedtime and helped Heather and I with our first coat of paint. What a good little helper.

Finished Product!!!
