Danny put some floor down at our project house ๐Ÿ™‚

The electricity was hooked up last Tuesday (7/18).. Wohoo!

I drove over to CDA to go shopping and then go to Costco that same morning. Views of the lake..

IMG_1517IMG_1518

We made our way to TJMaxx .. Lali copies me and moves the clothes around from the racks.. Oh, and Damian climbed on the bottom.. haha.

We had some pizza after our Costco shopping..

On the drive back the kids had fallen asleep, so I took my time. I drove out to the project house to see Danny’s progress.

He took out all the cabinets that made the dining area all funky..

This is the dining area. You can tell where the cabinets used to be because they painted around them.

The kitchen has all new flooring..

One morning I decided to take a shower. I locked all the doors and put on some cartoons for the kids, thinking they would watch. I was wrong. I was not in the shower for 2 minutes when I heard Lali’s feet racing towards the bathroom. She flung open the shower curtain and said, “hi mommy!”.. and so I brought her in the shower with me. Less than a minute later I hear louder foot steps running across the house. Damian made it over and took off his shirt and I helped him with the rest of his clothes. Anyways.. after we got out of the shower. the kids were cold.. so they nestled themselves into the couch and threw some blankets over themselves.

Lali likes to help hold Kuma.

Dinner at our bible study group..

IMG_1593IMG_1594IMG_1596

Lali kept standing there because the older kids would give her chips if she held her hands out long enough.

Damian was feeding their cows.

Lali likes playing on this swing. It’s lighter than it looks.

IMG_1601IMG_1602

We had our friends over for breakfast.

Danny working on the add on bedroom at our house.

IMG_1616IMG_1617IMG_1618

I thought this was pretty funny..haha.

IMG_1626

I made some banana bread and the kids took a slice each to snack on on our way to the park. They did not finish it. They gave me back more than half of each of theirs. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE CHILDREN??!

Damian calling out, “MOMMY AYUDA!(mommy help!)”

IMG_1629

On one of our lunches without Danny(because he was working on the project house) the kids had soup.

IMG_1630

Let them be messy.. I was too tired to care.

IMG_1631IMG_1632

The kids were wrecking my clothes piles, so I took them to Petco to walk around for a while, I know.. super exciting stuff.

They LOVED it! Damian had a slight fear of the iguanas. He thought they were going to get out of their tanks.

IMG_1634IMG_1635

When we were leaving the store, Lali yelled out, “Bye Pajo(pajaro)” (bye birds!)

IMG_1636

Danny got all the dirt smoothed out and filled in in all the right places.

IMG_1638IMG_1639

Tio Sam screwed in all those bolts.

IMG_1640IMG_1641

I wanted him to smile…

IMG_1644

Look at that double chin action I captured!

IMG_1649

We went out to dinner with tio Mark and tia Holly.

IMG_1661

I saw the kids playing in their room and then they closed the door. So, I went to check what they were being so secret about. I walked in and Damian had covered Chapo and given him his duck. He whispered to me, “Mami, Chapo va a mimis, apagar la luz (mommy, Chapo is going to sleep, turn off the light)”.ย  & he turned off the light and shooed me out. I was trying not to laugh too hard.

tio Mark lending a hand.

IMG_1672IMG_1673IMG_1674IMG_1675IMG_1676IMG_1677

Lali made a run for it while I was snapping pictures..

IMG_1678IMG_1679IMG_1681

Our last dinner while tio Mark and tia Holly were here. It was pretty hot out. If I remember correctly, I think it was 94 degrees.

IMG_1682

lol, sorry Mark.. I caught you making a weird face. Don’t worry.. there’s a lot of Danny making weird faces.. and tio Sam too..

IMG_1683IMG_1688

That square in the middle is for the crawl space.

IMG_1689

I took the kids to get donuts yesterday! (Thursday 7/27) ๐Ÿ˜€

IMG_1694IMG_1695

My favorite. Cake donut with pink frosting and sprinkles.

IMG_1697

The kids just seemed to eat the frosting.

IMG_1698

Lali loves sprinkles.

IMG_1699IMG_1700

More food at Costco. They had some huckleberry jam on toast. It got the kids all sorts of messy. Ohh well.. you can’t live your life worrying about getting messy. I’m going to have to wash their stinky clothes anyway, might as well make it worth it.

IMG_1703IMG_1704

I snapped this picture earlier today. All ready for insulation.

IMG_1712IMG_1713

Oh hello there Kuma..

IMG_1714

& there’s the first of the insulation..

IMG_1715IMG_1716

Woohoo, this room is going to be up in no time!
