Open House Party

How could you resist being welcomed to the "Project House" by these two handsome boys?

Are you a slight bit interested in seeing this counter with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies on it instead of work materials.... I am.

You might also want to see these stairs that my dad built twice, on account that I leveled the sloping floor at the top, so the stairs had to be redone to match my adjustment.  Would you like to see them with carpet?

If you are interested in seeing the two month bathroom and window project that turned into a SEVEN MONTH complete home remodel, let me know.  We will be having an open house on Saturday evening and would love to see you!

We were driving the other day listening to music. 
Slade all of the sudden cried out, "but dreams don't come true!" 

I guess the song referenced how dreams do come true.  In his little mind, he wants to believe his parents who tell him that his bad dreams are just dreams and they can't really happen to him.  This song was singing so innocently that dreams come true and it really scared our little 5 year old. 

Such a clear example that we all interpret what we hear so very very differently. 

What a great lesson.
