Our Recent Happenings

With all that has been going on lately, I decided that I needed/wanted to work on some projects.  I am so grateful that Andrew was so willing to help me out with them.  I absolutely LOVE how they all turned out. 

Deker and Bauer (Keagan was at school) were so excited and couldn't wait to help paint. 

Here are the finished projects.  These first two pictures are of things we put up in the living room.  We had gotten an old window from our friends who were remodeling a house.  I finally got around to cleaning it up, painting it and adding vinyl.  I also found this quote "Family, like branches on a tree we all grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one."  I also remembered that I saw a metal tree at a new store and thought it would go well with the quote and I had a 20% off coupon.
Next, I wanted to make this sign.  We had some boards in the garage that were cut too small when the bunk bed was being made and they worked perfectly and we used paint that we already had. 
This one is at the end of the hallway which I always thought needed something.  So, after looking at things I pinned on Pinterest, I decided on doing this with the 6 "B"s from President Hinckley. 
This one was all pretty much Andrew, but we finally got around to building this teeter totter that my sister Vera showed us several month ago.
Now, for some other random happenings in our house. 

Last Sunday when we got home from church, I didn't put my shoes away right away.  This is what I found Bauer doing after lunch.
Last Wednesday evening, we were all out in the back yard.  I was reading a book, Andrew was working on a project and the boys were playing.  Bauer was at the swing when he started crying.  I had figured he just fell of the swing and that he would be just fine, but when I went to check on him he was bleeding really bad from his mouth.  After getting him inside and looked at where the blood was coming from, we realized that he had knocked out one of his front teeth.  We took him to the dentist the next morning to make sure that it hadn't been pushed up or broken off or anything.  They took X-Rays and much to our relief it was just knocked completely out.  He will now just have 1 front tooth for quite a few years.

All your projects look great! I have a list of projects involving paint and furniture, (and I'm working on my first quilt) but lately all my ambition has gone into canning...to everything there is a season (sigh). Can't wait to see them all in person soon!

Holy smokes you guys have been doing some amazing projects. They are gorgeous! Oh, and Bauer can now swing for several year "All he wants for Christmas is Two front teeth!"
