Today. I got to work. Actually work. We went over to Dads job today, and he said, "hey why dont you help me a second?" Well that turned into.... 5 hours. But man was it enjoyable.

We tore out a bathroom, linen closet, 2 closets. And before it was over Andrew had joined us and was moving the studs in the walls and rebuilding walls.
Andrew and dad would speak in this secret constuction code. Measure some things. And Andrew would build a wall! Haha. -okay fine. I'm sure it's not all that secret, but if you don't know what they are talking about. It is!
This is the new wall ;)
Tomorrow they should finish moving all of the walls, and by the end of next week. Yep. It should all be put back together.

For me. Well. I had a blast. But for now. I suppose I'll keep turning piles of fabric into little creations.
I have been working on another post, but having a hard time articulating what is on my mind/heart. So until I get that worked out. This will have to do :)

So. Yesterday. Wait. Monday. Josh made pickles. (quite tasty I might add). So while we were working on pickles, Kate found a new toy!!!
Gosh. Why do we spend money on actual toys......?
And then. Josh taught her a new trick. Only when I starte recording, she stopped doing it for real. Grrr. How do little monsters know this.
As silly as it seems I feel the need to explain what I am doing to Kate. Perhaps it would be different if she was an age where she actually understood and could help. This time. Well not so much.
That didn't stop me from sitting her in the stroller while I explained to her how to change the oil on a 2004 Chevy Impala.
I told her there are six steps. 1. Locate the plug and the oil filter. (her daddy one drained the transmission fluid....) 2. Drain oil into a cool recycling container. (this is assuming you ever take it for the oil to be recycled) 3. Change filter. 4. Replace plug. (otherwise all of the new oil drains into that cool contanior) 5. Add refreshing new oil. 6. Allow car to run for a few mins to circulate the new oil into the engine. This allows you to check if you need to add more. Ta-da!!
Yes. I explained it just like that. I feel like all kids should know how to do these simple things. It's just that my kid. Well she just can't really understand yet.
Rest assured when she can, it will be her job. After all she is a lot skinny that I am!
By the way the oil filter is in a dumb place.
And after waiting on me for that long Peek-A-Boo from under the car wasn't funny anymore.
And this is me hiding her save cause she was being CRAZY! Hehe.

Kate trying to get the hang of walking.

    Stephanie -

    So. I have never actually made a blog. Mostly because I don't think anyone is really all that interested in anything we are doing.
    But why not? read if you want to. don't if you don't hehe.
