Work in Progress

My house is currently a work in progress....I don't even have the motivation to put up a Christmas tree...which for me, is strange. Here is a current list of projects that we decided to take on all at one...which don't ask me why, but yes, all at once...bathroom revamp which includes wall paper removal, painting, new fixtures, etc. Luckily the shower, floor, and counters are fine and dandy. New windows, which you will see Brian working in the FREEZING cold weather to get prepped for new windows, office revamp- its a mess, in need of TLC, craft room revamp- I need a more efficient workspace...Brian is currently in the middle of re-caulking our bathroom shower...and if I could just get him to fix the hole that's been there for 2 and a half years...doubt it! I am sure if it was summer we would be continuing our yard revamp...thank goodness its NOT! I don't think I could handle much more chaos!

Turkey Day Festivities

Wednesday night we got to hang with the Faw family...but I failed take any pictures...shame on me! These pictures are terribly out of order...I didn't have the energy to rearrange them. We spent Thanksgiving Day with the Hunter Family this year. As usual we had a feast to feed an army and it was fabulous. On the menu was Eric's famous stuffin' and smoked turkey, Mom made her roasted brussel sprouts with feta and her brown sugar sautéed sweet taters, Jo made her awesome homemade green bean casserole, gravy, potato soufflé, and I made my yummy cranberry sauce, and blackberry and apple pie.
Here is LindyJean and I hanging out.
The poor dogs were tormented all day with the smell of smoking turkey on the bbq...this is their sad let us in, it's cold faces.
Here is our table, we went with a leaf theme.
Addy Lou Hoo was so excited to be able to go and feed the cows with Boss.
He even read her a story.
Here we are playing...
The whole family!
I do think this is Boss and LindyJean 1st picture.
The men folk basting the turkey.

Anika's First Bday Party

What a week/weekend, Brian has been gone fishing in Hell's Canyon in Idaho for a few days...he drove from Lewiston and met us all in Vancouver. Saturday we loaded up the troops and went to Vancouver to celebrate with Brad and Stephanie at Anika's First Birthday Celebration!
Here is Brian making Anika a party hat, which she wasn't too excited about wearing.
Little Emma though, she was super excited about Brian's tissue paper party hats.
Here is the wee one in her party get up, love it.
Auntie Staci and Boss.
The whole Faw Clan. What a great group!

We had our first snow yesterday the 20th of November...it didn't last long, but it felt like Christmas morning!
Here is Maddy all cuddled up in her little house, I don't know how she even fits in here, but she loves it.

Robots & Jonda's Shower

This weekend we had Jonda's baby shower and since she had decided to do robots as a theme for her room, we decided to have a robot shower. Ashley and I decided to make robot centerpieces using misc. items from Brians and her dad shops. Basically, tin cans and a bunch of junk. They were awesome!
Here is Ashley and I at the shower...yes we are so cool. ha!
The woman of the hour.
Cutie Julia, Jonda, and I
Lyndenn and I
Here's the final product. Amber had the vision for the tables, which turned out awesome.

A Man and His Tools

Brian has a tool addiction, similar to women and their shoe addictions, well the Bri-Guy he likes his tools...since harvest has ended him and his shop have been spending alot of quality time together. He has needed a new air compressor for sometime now...and after searching craigslist for the last 6 months he finally found the perfect one, it was love at first sight.

Brian has been working diligently getting the pasture and pens ready to feed out the cows for the next 2 months.
This here is Charlie and he is the meanest cow of them all. He really dislikes Brian most, I think he senses his fate.
Brian got some big bales...which make it difficult to buck them...so you have to use a machine instead, oh darn, less work for me to do!

Visit to Prosser

Yesterday I got to go to Prosser to see the Stagg Clan. We went on a walk, got hot cocoa, went through the antique stores, played outside, and then took family pictures in the afternoon. It was such a beautiful fall day!
