Recap

We have had a fairly busy couple of weeks.  My parents came to visit, and we had a great time with them.  I think we ate a little too well, but that is to be expected when we have such great visitors come.  Bj's Nana passed away, and we have had a good time scanning all her pictures and having Bj make a video of her (you can see it here).  Liz has been in soccer, while Mitchell has been taking golf lessons.  Bj also took on a major home project.  Mitch and Madeline had a piano recital, and they both did fabulous.   So here are the pics of all the random stuff we have done the past couple weeks.


Liz with her fabulous soccer ball.  She is such a great player, and I love to see her smile as she smokes all her competition.
When my parents came into town we went to the butterfly exhibit.  It was amazing.  I saw butterfly's I never even imagined existed.  There were some beautiful black and turquoise ones, as well as black and magenta.  Of course, I couldn't sneak a pic of those.  Liz was terrified of the butterflies.  They were everywhere, zipping in and out of our hair, arms, legs, etc.  She was ready to leave the butterfly sanctuary about 30 seconds after we got there.

My sweet Mom.  She is the best.

So, last week we had a family party.  The pool is still cold, please don't be fooled.  But, our children, being the spaz children they are, decided it didn't matter, and jumped in anyway.  They are crazy.  Luckily, it is warm outside, but that pool was certainly frosty (45 degrees F to be exact).

The piano recital was perfect.  I love our teacher, she is so fabulous.  This was such a great experience, with little fear involved.  The kids did great, and I felt so proud to have other the  parents asking me about my great children afterward. 

Here's the big one.  This baby took over our weekend (last weekend).  We used to have a super high bar ....but we thought life might be slightly more convenient to have it all counter height.  So, we went for it.   Bj is so handy, I am so grateful to have such a talented hubby who can do anything he puts his mind to.  Our house was certainly messy for a few days, but wow, Bj got it done so fast, I was really impressed with him.  Now, we get to all eat at the bar for our casual eating needs, and I can sit at the counter and watch Bj cook all our meals (oh yeah, and do all our dishes too).

Plllleeeeaaaassseee! Sarah very rarely watches me cook or clean because most to the time she is doing all the cooking and cleaning. She is awesome, and now her kitchen is much more functional.

Yeah for Bj and his handymanness. I am so happy this was a quick project and didn't take as long as the porch. And there is always the Sunday afternoon mac and cheese to look forward to.

I love your new and improved island! That's really great that BJ was able to do it himself! Oh and Congrats on the baby! I'm so happy for you all! How fun! Oh and even if the pool is 45 degrees I'm still jealous. lol

I am so excited for you, I am just giddy! I sent Cory a text right after you and I got off the phone. Great job for Liz with soccer. I've seen her run and I know how fast she is. And great job to Madeline and Mitchell with their piano recitals. Kistie is such a fantastic person and I'm sure she is an amazing teacher. Great job BJ with the island as well as dinner and dishes! Hey, I just realized that I had replied to a post that I was going to bring you saltines. Now I know the REAL reason that you needed them!
