Spring has Sprung!

I THINK it's official, spring is here... although WA has been known to bust out a random snow storm in March/April from time to time so *KNOCK ON WOOD*, just to be safe! I didn't think we'd ever see spring or get to DEFROST! It has been a very cold winter in our old house. Our FIRST winter, something to remember that's for sure.

For those of you that have not had the pleasure of visiting this Winter let me paint you a picture. Our house is almost 100 years old. Upon poking around Brandon has figured out that in leiu of insulation we have newspaper in the walls, yes, that means we are as warm as a hampster cage! lol We also have old windows and the back of the house, under the kitchen and 2nd bedroom, is open underneathe the crawl space so air drafts in and thus makes it IMPOSSIBLE to go into the kitchen unless you are wearing snow boots. brrrrrr....

Some of the highlights of our winter include having the heater come on even when it is in the OFF Position (we heat our house by stove) - this means our house was below 30 degrees. Having spilled bath water on the bathroom floor turn into slush. And of course the classic time when Cash asked to use to the potty and immedidatly started to cry because the toilet seat was SO VERY COLD! Poor kid is going to be in diapers until he's 6 now! LOL

So now that we have survived, we have some 'upgrades' and repairs to make before the next winter sets in, as I do not want to go through this again, especially with an infant!

Keep checking back for fun Spring pics and progress on all our projects. Brandon is starting the back deck today and is also picking up his 1978 John Deere Riding lawn tractor ( which needs a few tweaks!) Until then here are a few pics from the past month, sorry about the quality. I usually just grab my cell to take pics when the mood strikes me!

First car ride at the outlet mall, he wasn't a fan!

Mama, I need more tooth paste!

TIME OUT! (He threw his shoe at the cat, naughty!)

I tricked him into smiling by taking a pic of his truck, he refuses to smile or even look at me when I grab the camera!

Dancing along to Dora, his new AMIGA! She helped us survive 2 weeks of Pneumonia, God Bless her!

Oh and Baby Girl and I are doing well, despite my sore bum from the fall, we are 24 weeks and FINALLY healthy and happy now that we've kicked the pneumonia! Updated belly pic to come soon, I haven't showered yet! :) We are officially on the surgery schedule to have her on July 7th (since I have to have a repeat c-section); let's hope she doesn't decide to come early!!

On the trail with Billie girl, 23 weeks!
