The Missing Marker

Yesterday, Katie came up to me and said that she had lost her red marker, and that the lid was also missing. I told her we should make sure to look for it so that Nathan didn't find it.

Lo and behold, today Rachel starts screaming and yelling for me to come look at Nathan. It took me a while to realize it wasn't blood, and that he had found our missing red marker. He did a pretty good job painting the parts that usually get bloody when a child gets hurt. Freaked me out, but he gave a great smile for the camera!

We've had a lot of snow. But this is the first snowfall that has given us the snow we need to build snowmen. We started with the dad snowman, and he looked so good, we just had to keep going until we made our snow family. You can see all six of us. Dad and Mom in the back, Katie Rachel and Sarah with bows in their hair, and then our baby Nathan snowman with a little purple hat in the front.

This is what we started with.


Finishing the downstairs bathroom. This had been our goal over the winter. David did the plumbing (with the help of a great neighbor), sheet rock, mudding, painting, installing sink and shower, tiling, grouting, and trim work. What a handy guy, he can do it all!
