Things have been crazy around here, but thankfully as I was packing up the desk I found my camera cord so I could finally upload some photos. It's amazing what you dig up when you start to pack. I've decided after this I never want to move again. I say that every time; doesn't everyone? Here are a few photos from the last few weeks.
Building is our favorite.

Granddad sent us some presents from his trip to Honduras!
Getting so tall!

Eating a "nanana"

Lemons are a special snack.

So I'm packing up our house and mentally decorating our new place. It's dangerous, you know, making over a place you don't even live in yet. I've been scouring Pinterest for weeks in order to get some ideas for cheap and easy upgrades, how-tos and decor ideas. I came across this blog - The House of Smiths. I have been pouring over it for days now and it's serving as quite a bit of sewing and decor inspiration. I've decided our first "major" project will be this one:

Beautiful, right? Our hall entry closet has bi-fold doors, though, so the demolition step won't be quite as dramatic as theirs. We plan on just taking the doors off and adding molding. It will give the Husband a chance to use some of his new tools and get back into woodworking. I've already put him to work at designing a new dining room table for us. Just a few more weeks!
