The Week in Pictures: Friday Sept, 25

Too many pictures that were perfect, but not enough for an entire blog post? Well here they are, a mish mash of pictures for you to see. This is how our week went....

"Dang, these boots are hard to walk in." Well, that's the reason we bought the scratching post! Not for cats. Nah, not at all...

Attack of the alfalfa hair!

They both looked so proud that I had to take a picture. Look how straight she's sitting.

Coming back from the kitchen with her milk, this sight greeted me.

A tidy toy area? This is the only time I've seen this, so a picture was necessary.

Learning to quilt. Lots of precision, lots of grumbling, lots of fun.

Izzie's big girl bed, just waiting for her room to get its second coat of paint.

Hope you all had a great week as well!

Listening to her Grandpa W. Thank goodness for speaker phone. She tried to walk away with him!

Now that is fashion sense.

Yard Sailing

I am officially a lover of all things yard sale. Well, not the gross falling apart furniture or the used toys that totally should have been wiped of before my daughter got her hands on them. But I love all the other things. Like orange chairs that are totally cheap for Izzie's room...

That chair is in great shape, and we got it for a steal! And it rocks, much to Izzies delight.

Yard sales are one of the best things about this season, and I mean the season of summer ending. Everyone is desperately trying to get rid of their stuff and they don't care how much you pay for it. Score! I have grabbed many pieces of fabric to reuse and we also have an end table for our couch. It's circular and a wee bit wobbly, but slap on some turquoise paint and distress it and it'll be golden....just have to figure out what paint to use....and decide which colour of turquoise.

And lastly, while shopping at a thrift store, I found this little gem..
A handmade wooden rocking horse for Izzie's delight. It now has diaper cream smeared on it, but at least it knows it's loved.
And it goes with our floor.

Wordless Wednesday: Fence Building Buddy

Every fence building party needs a picnic!

So, whatcha doing?

She is bringing a nail over...

Trying to nail the nail in with her hammer.

Whew, this fence building is tiring.

Lazy Days of Summer September!

We are enjoying some lovely weather.

Going out for bike rides

Biking to the park and/or water park

Picking up some fine things at yard sales

Eating outside, picnic style

Running around in diapers...well, Izzie is at least

Basking in the warm glow of the sun and then breathing a sigh when a cool wind comes.

Yes siree, summer is upon us. (Hopefully for longer than three days. We're in day number two right now.) And the in-laws are coming to visit today and Phil is taking some time off of work. That's right, we're having a family weekend in the middle of the week.

Am I a lucky gal, or what?
