Miscellaneous kid pics from the past couple of weeks.

Isaac slipped and hit his head HARD, smack on the concrete the other day so you’ll see him running around carrying an ice pack in some of the pics. He also seems to be quite the camera ham lately.

Nellie started eating her first food last week. Rice cereal. Yum! That’s what she thinks anyway but she’s not yet tasted a good, medium-rare steak yet. Here’s her first meal, fed by Charlie:

Apparently, the ground needed some repairing:

The blur:

Cody and the blur:

What do you mean I can’t have steak until I’m older?!

Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, Steve started laying the walls.

And, for the pure entertainment of it, here is The Butt:

(Pure Fluff Warning–no house stuff this time)

The birthday parties!

On September 13, 2005, Charlie will be 5 and Isaac will be 9. We had their birthday parties this weekend. We rented out a room at a hotel in town for Friday night through Sunday morning. We got there Friday night, swam, and went to bed. Saturday morning, more swimming (and sleeping in for me and Nellie!), then lunch. At 1:00, the gang started showing up. More swimming, a break for cake, and more swimming. Then dinner and bedtime. Or was there more swimming?? Then more swimming Sunday morning before check out time. Then we were off to Fort Smith for lunch at Golden Corral, followed by shopping at Toys-R-Us, and the grand finale of a movie at a theatre. Shark Boy and Lava Girl in 3-D! After that, we finally made it back home and headed up the hill for a little play time.

Isaac and Charlie got some really cool gifts! Gigantic toolboxes, water guns, roller blades, boxing gloves, nerf guns, magic tricks, pool gear, etc. All things that they love so it was perfect!

Three hot chicks by the pool side:

Three studs in the pool:

Make that four studs in the pool:

Duke, showing off his (borrowed) big weapon for a hottie:

Slightly melted cakes:

Did someone say cake??

“Oooh, I ate too much but I sure found a nice, comfy human recliner!”

Think I can get her to look at the camera?

No, look THIS way…

Pretty please?

Oh, just hold her up or something, will ya?

This is the last time I’m reworking the floor plan! Ever.

Steve said to increase it to 75′ x 40′, plus the tornado room and greenhouse. Here’s what I came up with. (I know it doesn’t come out very clearly on here because of the width of the page. There is no way to fix that so, if you’d like to see a clearer copy, just email me and I’ll send it without the squishing.)

Just a few kid pics from today plus a current pic of the (weedy) garden.

September 6, 2005

Nothing exciting but the beginnings of the walls are started.

Holes drilled for rebar be placed into the concrete, then run up inside the blocks that will be filled with concrete.

And the electricity. Breaker box in a temporary place, covered to protect from rain.

First, a new Nellie pic, just for Anita.

Harvested half of the grapes tonight, about two gallons. Another load waiting to be picked tomorrow. Looks like I’ll be making jam this weekend!

Steve was up all night getting things ready for the electric company. They arrived pretty early and set to work. We were missing one thing, some sort of box thingy for the stubby pole, but it’ll be here today and then everything will be set.

The lower part of the trench finished.

Doing whatever it is they do:

Line in place:

And the boxes in place:

Trench covered back up:

Getting things ready for the 2′ deep trench from box to house:

And still going as the sun sets:

An extra bonus: Remember the cement vs. ankle incident last year? I found one of my shoes I was wearing that day. I had taken it off when my ankles started hurting and forgot them up there because of all of the excitement. Figured I’d take a pic for posterity. :D

I present…The Shoe!

August 22, 2005

I still haven’t looked in the camera’s manual to figure out the red eye thing.

Watching Steve operate heavy machinery is good entertainment in these parts. Butt cleavage is free of charge.

And some more flowers:

And this tiny little wildflower:
