There's No Day Like a Snow Day...

unless you don't have power. That's what we woke up to on Wednesday, January 28th. Our electricity went out about 6 am. Luckily it was restored before lunch time. Good thing, it was getting quite chilly in our house! Joey's work was cancelled and I wasn't about to venture out in my "delicate" situation. So, we hunkered down for a day of snoozing, watching movies, and Joey shoveling. Here are some pics from our house and subdivision.

Extreme Makeover Home Edition

Well, maybe not extreme...but quite the transformation for our little house in the past year. We've built another bedroom, moved our master, nixed my scrapbooking room, made Joey a new office, moved the spare bed into our old master and finally made a cozy place for Kate to sleep and play. So, I give you pictures of Joey's new manly office and Kate's girlier than girly room! I will post pictures of the belly soon. You see, I get in my pjs as soon as I walk in the door. So, I'll try to remember to keep some regular clothes on for a few more minutes to take a picture.

(Kate's Room! The second picture is kinda dark so you can see her name on the wall, Joey built the bookcase "dollhouse" decked out with tiny shutters, scalloped shingles and gingerbread trim. Pretty much my dream house.)

Under construction... my next post. I can't believe it's been so long! Sorry everybody!!! I've been so busy lately, yet I couldn't tell you what in the world I have been doing. But, nevertheless, I am feeling great these days and Baby Kate seems to be happy as she dances in my belly. I have another ultrasound appointment this Friday to retake pictures. She was so squirmy the first time they couldn't get clear pictures of her heart. Aside from a few sleepless nights of trying to stay sleeping on my side, I can finally understand why some people enjoy being pregnant.

We are finishing up a few final touches on Kate's room and I PROMISE to post pictures of that, Joey's new office and of course my growing belly. Until then, I hope all of you are thinking warm weather thoughts :) Only a few more weeks until Groundhog Day!
