We attempted to prime the trim several times this weekend. We still have to get the hang of this diy stuff. Ted picked a dental molding (Because he got it for a DEAL) and it is hard to get the paint in it with a brush so we were trying to spray it but haven't had the best of luck with thinning the paint. All of this will really help us when we get to the other part of the house that need updating. It is interesting learning all of this new stuff. I still want to post the pictures I mentioned yesterday but I'm going to wait until the best time. Here are pictures from outside today. Matthew was changing inside since he had just mowed a small part of the yard. He got his picture in yesterday though.
Matches is so friendly latley. He talks so much we have to tell him to be quiet. Tonight he didn't mind Lucas trying to talk to him and petting him. At one point Sawyer felt left out and tried to join in. Here are some pictures of Kari trying to catch it all in action. I took some really funny pictures tonight at Gampa's Birthday Party of Granma Valeri and Lori. I will be posting them tomorrow if I have enough time.

I want to tell you so much about the camping trip but I really have to watch my computer time. It takes a few minutes to edit the pictures and figure out what to say. (A few minutes I don't really have) I am trying to recover from the week Ted was home that I didn't clean, the mess from the tools for the addition, mess from the washing machine accident, and then the mess from camping. For now I am going to post a few pictures with brief descriptions.

Instead of celebrating St Patricks day here at home we went on a camping trip. It was Shane and Colby's first camping trip. We had so much fun. We went with the Cub Scout Pack that Shane will join in a year or so. This is the same Cub Scout Pack Matthew was a part of until he crossed over into the Boy Scout Troop. We went to the beautiful Magnolia Springs State Park.

Last night was a Medieval celebration for Matthew's History/ Language Arts Class. He didn't have a part in the play this year. That is okay because the previous four years he had a large part and this year we said he could take a break. Even though he didn't really have much to do last night, I still have so much fun getting costumes together for everyone. Plus I think everyone expects that they are coming dressed up. I have done this for the past 5 years. My sewing machine broke while I was getting costumes ready in October. I had to be creative and find some way to get the costumes done. So, for the past few months I've been collecting things from the Goodwill that I thought that I could piece together for some knight outfits. I got the sword idea from a website where I almost bought them swords and shields (We didn't get the sheilds done in time) for a really high price. With some wood scraps and paint we already had I think their swords turned out pretty good. The small picture is of Matthew dancing. He and his partner thought something was hilarious. She is is the red and black dress. I won't be updating again for a few days.

Things are mostly dried out here. The wood floor is the only thing we are keeping our eye on now. The carpet is dry. We had the insurance people and the cleaning guys out. We are going to get the carpet in the playroom replaced sometime. I will post pictures when we do. The house is still turned upside down. When I posted we didn't realize that the living room got wet also. The drywall, painting and all that we going on had the house in disarray anyways. With the small flood now it is very very disorganized. It will eventually get back in place. I have had an allergy attack of sorts. Since we had fans blowing in every room of the house dust got everywhere. I guess you could say I am VERY allergic to dust. I have alot of congestion in my chest and sound like I have a really bad cold. I think my allergy pills only prevent so much. I can't imagine what recovery from a real flood or a hurricane would be like. We just had fresh washing machine water on our carpet and wood floor. The people in the hurricanes had their whole house under dirty water.
I haven't taken any pictures really so these are of Sawyer and Ted playing around from last week.

Well for now we are going to be working on a new project. Waiting for Insurance Adjusters, and Service Pro to help us dry out our flooded house. The washer freaked out and flooded the boys new room (Carpetless Thank God) the Dining room wood floor, the Playroom carpet and Kitchen Tile (At least one room ~Kitchen~ is dry already)
I will probably not have much time to be on the computer. I will update next week I am sure. Happy Birthday Ean if I don't get to it tomorrow.

Ted picked up these build it yourself Madagascar boxes for the kids months and months ago. I guess they are really cages. For anyone who has ever had a boy (maybe girls do this too) but our boys have always liked to trap or close up their stuffed animals, toys etc. Plus kids always love to put things in boxes including themselves. Examples A, B and C
