Our Little Boogers

Sharing our lives: two kids, two full-time jobs, one old house, and plenty of love and laughter. And baseball.

Best. Campaign. Video. Ever.

The kids were running for president of our house today, so they each made a short campaign video. After watching them, I was torn.

Hers is really cute, right?
But his, his is a work of art. It's like a paranoid conspiracy theorist's campaign video/Blair Witch redo. I mean, I'm in love with this.
Voting was a tough decision. Even though I loved the little guy's video, I support the little girl's anti-fussing platform. Luckily, I was allowed to vote for both of them! Hooray Democracy?

The little dude has gotten really into Pokemon recently. It's super confusing, but he loves it. The one cool part is that he's started making his own Pokemon cards and games. We played one tonight!

I'm not entirely sure what the rules are, except that he seemed to win most of the time.

She's four!! Can you believe it? She had a great birthday. We took donuts to school this morning and had her favorite dinner, cake, and presents this evening.
How did time go by so quickly!??

Well, we went to the playground to fly a kite yesterday, and I think the weather may have set a record for least wind ever. The kids still had a great time!

Eric had a great time, too!
The reason we have a kite now is that the little one earned it as a prize at school for being a good friend. We, of course, are very proud, and she, of course, wanted to fly it immediately.

Semi-Monthly Update

Hi again! We have paint, trim, light fixtures, and doorknobs!! It's all very exciting.
We forgot to get a light fixture for the family room, so the electrician put up this 'temporary' one to pass inspection. How many years do you think it'll be before we replace it?
We're heading to a park this afternoon to fly a kite, so I'll have kid pictures to post again at some point.

The little guy turned 7 last week-- we're still not sure how that happened.
And, we have sinks and toilets and some paint upstairs! We should have glass around our shower by the end of the week. It's all very exciting.
The one design thing that I really kind of insisted on (and I felt like a total diva) was having two pedestal sinks in the master bathroom. Isn't it amazing?? I'm in love.

Everything Is Blue

Ever since they started painting the house, I've had the song Blue stuck in my head. Anyway, look!
Also, we have doors!
Next step: door installation.
