norm abram watch out...

My darling husband is an avid fan of The New Yankee Workshop seen on PBS on Saturday mornings. The show is dedicated to the fine craft of wood working. Norm is the show's host, and I think he better start fearing that a certain someone may take over his job soon...

While Joey was on vacation a few weeks ago, this is what he whipped up. And I say whipped up because he is the most efficient woodworker ever! I can't believe how beautiful this piece turned out and I love it in our living room! Joey said it could have been made easier with an enormous wood shop, expensive tools, and someone to come and clean up after him at night. (Not me, too busy throwing up!)

So, without further ado, I present our new made from scratch, made by hand, and with love, and a little sweat DVD cabinet!

don't drink the water!

The baby epidemic is spreading like mad!! The Marshall clan will be VERY busy this May. Not only are Joey and I expecting on May 6th, but we just found today that Joey's brother, Tommy, and his wife, Rugya, are expecting on May 22nd!!! So, the cousins will be only weeks apart and the new grandparents will have take off soon after our baby arrives to travel to Chicago to meet the other Baby Marshall. Congratulations to Tommy and Rugya! What a fun roller coaster to be on together!

In other baby news, a very close family friend and his lovely wife welcomed their bundle of joy to the world on Sunday. Be sure to check out Baby Jack's mommy and daddy's blog to get all the details! http://www.brianriddell.blogspot.com/ Congratulations to the Riddell family :) We can't wait to meet the newest little groundhog!
