Catch All

It's another catch all post before I start recapping our trip to Florida.  This post will be in random order.....

This little boy loves sweets and would do anything for an M&M or ice cream.  We really have to watch him, because he will try to sneak candy.  He has quite the sweet tooth.  He does not feel the same way about vegetables.

He has also never met a puddle he doesn't want to jump in.....he ended up riding home in the stroller in a diaper and it was pretty chilly out.
This time Evan was ready with his rain boots, but there was no rain or puddles
Still working on table manners with this guy

Smiley girl in her new swim cap for her trip to Florida.....
This was one of my favorite outfits on Hannah, so glad we get to use it again

I have been working out at home since our gym closed down and Hannah likes to get in on the action.....she can do some mean burpees!
Nora likes it when I do a plank like this
This is Evan's version of a plank


I joined Hannah on her field trip to the Gentry Safari zoo.....this place is always an experience
For some reason all the kids liked this pig....
......he is a beauty
Petting a kangaroo
Hannah has done so well in Kindergarten.  We are very proud of her.  She has never clipped down on the clip chart at school.  She really thrives on the clip chart system (I wish she would do the same at home).  She has been up to pink (the highest color) a bunch of times and after 5 times of getting on pink she gets to have lunch with the teacher in the class room.  She gets so excited when she gets to have lunch with her teacher.  Every time she gets on pink she gets to put a sticker on her clip.  After 5 times she gets a new clip that is a different color.  I recently found out that there is a glitter clip if you are on your 7th clip (I think) and now I know why Hannah is trying so hard to get to that clip......few more weeks of school left to get to the glitter clip!

Evan and Nora were taking a nap together and Evan put his arm around her
More sibling love.....
When Evan answers yes to a question he always says "yes please" even when you are asking "Did you have fun?" he says "yes please"......I found him in the garage with his step stool, so that he can open the garage door.  He has never met a door he can't open.

Interior House Progress

I really like coming back to the blog and seeing the progress on the house.  I like having it documented and it is always fun to go back to the previous houses we have built.  This blog has been such a nice way to preserve a lot of memories........I know I would forget half of the things we have done.  I recently printed our fourth blog book and it is a lot of fun to go back and read through old posts.  I started the blog when Hannah was about one year old.  I have not always been the most consistent with it, but I do have all major milestones and events documented.  Hannah loves reading through these books.

Back to today's topic.......There has been a lot of progress on the interior of the house.
Last time I posted about the house we just had drywall finished.  We now have a lot of the trim done and most cabinets are set.
Working on outside trim (the front door is now stained)
I like how the arches are coming along
Entertainment center in living room.....there will eventually be a library ladder added to that (not sure if that is the smartest decision with small kids, but I do think it will look really cool)
Living room trim
Most of the Kitchen cabinets are in.....
Dining room trim....I love the design on the ceiling
Office cabinets
Playroom.....the slide from Hanna's room comes out into the playhouse
Master bedroom and bath
Laundry room......I am pretty excited about all of the storage
The prettiest room in the house......I can already picture a christmas tree up there :)
Built in desks.....this rounded room is in between Hannah and Evan's room, so it will give them a nice space for homework 
Evan's room

Hannah's room
Nora's room.....those boxes will have wallpaper in them
Working on the pool as well.....
Exciting times!
