While purchasing the piping for the pillows above, Landon saw this shark fabric and REALLY wanted it. I bought some and made him a little apron out of it, since he's getting a too big for the one he has. He loves to put his apron on and help me make bread.
We received this little toddler bed from my Sister-in-law, which came in handy when we were out of our house during the BIG construction. Now that we are having another baby, we need a crib and I asked Landon if he would be willing to move to another bed and give his bed up to Calvin, who would be giving his crib up for the baby. The only way I could get him to change beds was if I painted his "new" bed darker blue. So I have painted it blue (which once was white), sanded it down to antique it, and then applied a glaze to finish it off. I'm not sure about how it turned out yet, but Landon was so excited he came home from school and climbed right into it! I didn't get any close up pics beause I'm not real sure about how it turned out and plus my camera is being really fuzzy that the ones I did take turned out horrible--this project brings with it another project--repaint their room!
This is how I have been keeping up on the dishes, so that I have time to do my fun projects. But...don't forget, you must have your snow boots on in order to do the dishes!
Calvin and I went out shopping today. He insisted that he walk and carry our goods while I push an empty stroller.

As I mentioned above, I have a new laundry room in the basement. The old laundry room is being turned into the Nursery for baby #3! I have 4 weeks until my "due date" I guess we probably should get going on the nursery. This week for FHE we worked a little on it as a family. (I''m sure we were more a hindrance than a help, but the boys had the time of their life thinking they were helping build the room for their baby sibling)

We then went to the Hogle Zoo at the end of February and Landon kept asking "what zoo?"
He was very disappointed when he learned that the Hogle Zoo was not the Kangaroo Zoo!
These boys' favorite thing to do in the morning...watch a "show" on Daddy's phone.
We played out in the snow and built a snowman that didn't even last through the day.
For some reason all children that come to our house, love these glasses. I couldn't leave this photo out.
This is a photo of one of my projects I finished. I have nicely organized my closet. Keep in mind the BEFORE was my closet, with Jared's stuff shoved and crammed in so the house construction could be completed.
Another one of my projects that I completed was the Laundry room...the old Laundry room. I got it organized and in shape to have a smooth flowing laundry process. I LOVED it! It was great...but now the Laundry room is down in the basement and right now it is chaos! I guess I shouldn't have wasted my time, but it was great for the few months that it lasted, plus how was I to know it was going to end up downstairs.
I guess I should mention the reason why the Laundry room has been moved downstairs. We have decided to turn the "old laundry room" into a nursery.
We are having baby #3!
whether it's a boy or a girl, we do not know. We will find out May 19th (or sometime around there- depending when the little babe decides to enter this world). We are very excited!! It sure seems like time is flying by and like we are running out of time to get all of our "projects" done before this wee little one arrives.

Following are the effects of moving a house. I would say every wall in the house has at least 2-3 large cracks like these. Little did we know that we would have to re-do almost everything in the house:
Happy Birthday Calvi! We love you!
