"I Did It!"

Addison and I were stacking dominoes yesterday when she started doing this. I thought it was so cute. I don't know where she learned to do it, I'm guessing Max.

Animal Lover

Addison is going through a stuffed animal phase. She takes them everywhere with her. For the last month she has insisted on taking them in the car and to bed as well. Maybe she's trying to soften me up to get her a pet. It'll probably never happen, but at least she's easy to entertain, as long as their are stuffed animals around. I love to see her imagination at work.

Nap Time

Addison is getting pretty creative in her playing. Earlier this week she strategically placed all of her toys on their backs (including her cars, trucks and her sippy cup) and told me to shhh because they were sleeping. She even makes her version of snoring noises for them. She never ceases to make me laugh.

We Aren't Moving


For those of you who knew we were thinking about moving, we aren't. We tried to sell our house by owner for a couple of months, without much luck. Then I decided it was time for me to learn to be happy no matter where I live, so that is what I'm focussing on. Dave and I have always loved out ward, so I'm focussing on the positive. I told Dave that I would stop trying to move for a couple of years, but that I needed new flooring in our living room. Dave hometeaches a contractor so we hired him to come replace our flooring, and we love the way it turned out!

After


The other great thing about getting our floors redone is that the surround sound wires no longer run up and down my walls, but go under the flooring! They have been an eye sore since we put them up more than 4 years ago. If you look closely at the before picture you can see them above the sliding back door. We are still looking for a bigger area rug, but it may take months to find one that we like.
