While the cats are away. . .

We took a train. . .

and got caught in the rain. . .

We were in the middle of Hermann Park and had to walk to the car. Brigham is not in these pictrues because he's terrified of thunder at the moment and as soon as we pulled up he jumped in the car and refused to get out even for a picture.

Luke and Sam finished 1,000 pieces. . .

And finished a whole lot of Asterix.

(like 4 new comics in one afternoon!)

Sennia loves to swim. She's quite the cover girl don't you think:)?

Sennia wasn't supposed to be eating mango but she stole some and it was love at first bite so I didn't have the heart to take it away.

pantry #2

Friday, June 1, 2012

SO, the story goes like this. I woke up to find weevil larva making cocoons in my pantry ceiling. I was disgusted. I cleaned out the pantry and as I'm cleaning I'm just discouraged and frustrated and yucked out. Old houses do that to ya, yuck ya out. SO, I decide I've had it and the pantry at least is getting a face lift. I scrubbed, painted, labled, organized, shelf-papered. And it's darn cute.

No excuses for not knowing where things go in this pantry! I do have a few more things I want to do, put things in baskets, get another bucket for black beans, mount a broom/mop holder. I don't think I'll be able to wait much longer to do the kitchen. The kids were so impressed Alena said "Mom! How 'bout we paint one room every day and then decorate it!" If only girl if only. I did go to bed after doing that and dealing with the stomach flu(Brigham) with the messiest kitchen and tiredest mommy ever. Seriously, my kitchen has never looked as bad as it did yesterday. Sennia wasn't too keen on the boys giving her so much time and attention either. OH WELL.

Boy Scout-1st class!

He also recieved 5 of the 8 merit badges he's earned.
