renovation time...again

we are currently involved in the largest renovation of our home to date.  (our reason for the lack of blogging.)  for those of you that know our house these are some of the changes, so far.
* our room is now josie's room
* russ and i have been sleeping on the pull out couch for 2 weeks now.
(i kind of like watching tv while going to sleep, i feel like i am on vacation)
* our closet has thrown up and exist on our dinning room table
* there are strange men in our house a lot.
* no cleaning for me...the house is a wreck all the time and will only get worse

the goal is a master suite (bathroom and walk-in closet).  things are coming along really well. when you live in an old small house little things seem really great.  russ and i are so excited to not have share a sink or a closet.  

hopefully, the saw dust will settle soon and i can upload some pictures.

Josie is enthralled with shoes these days.  I have to say, she gets that from her mother.  Hello!!! What girls does not love shoes?!  She found KC's old boots at my mom's house.  We brought them home and they have won the "toddler entertainer award" for the month.  She is so amused just slipping, stomping and sliding around the house with them on.  It is quite funny and helpful.  I can hear when she falls or has stopped to get into something else.  A friend said, "It is like bell on a cow."  Hmmmm.

The "toddler entertainer award" was held by my running shoes, last month.  Girlfriend would sit for 20 to 30 minutes trying to untie, tie, tangle.... those laces.  She has mad skills! 

I will leave you with some recent pictures.

We visited Burt's farm again this year.  We have been enjoying this weather, any chance we can get!
