The Yard

Today I did some work around the yard while the kids were asleep. I pulled out all of the dead plants/weeds/trees. Next up, heading to Canadian Tire to buy a fancy shmancy weeder so I can pull out the eight million thistles in the yard(and no im NOT exagerating!)
This is the back of the house(dont mind the garbage:S) Im pulling both of these out and we're going to make it a back patio type deal, we'll put the picnic table/bbq out back here.
This is the side of the yard. Not much going to happen here. We plan on adding more evergreens along the side of the ditch, and the 2nd course of bricks from the garden will come off and be used along the front gardens/in front of the road
Gardens at the front of the house. There are two along the road, but theyre just evergreens, I plan on putting some flowers in those and moving some things around. Theyre overrun with thistles, as is this front garden around the hydro pole. Ive got A LOT of work ahead of me!
And last but not least the pond. It definately looks better after I pulled all the dead crap from around it. Still need to clean out the algae, and well, the waterfall and such needs work still, but we're not going to be able to get to that for a few years. There are tadpoles in the pond however, courtesy of the toad orgies from a few weeks ago ;)

Our new friends!

We seem to have some new friends hanging around our pond. We're pretty sure they're nesting in the ditch across the street. There are only the two in this picture(crappy quality because it was taken from my kitchen window), but there were three in the driveway yesterday. So neat! And Ricky was super excited to see the duckies!

All moved in-pics

Charlies room, still need to put a chair in there and clean up a bit, but hes still sleeping in a playpen in my room right now anyways.

Rickys new "Cars" room all put together. He absolutely LOVES it! Curtains made courtesy of my mom! She rules(her and my dad also bought Rickys bedding!)

                    Our room, will update with better pics once we get our new bed/bedding and I make curtains

Living room (forgive the mess) I still need to put up pictures/decorate a bit.
Kitchen (also a bit of a mess). The dishwasher STILL isnt installed (can you tell I'm annoyed?!)

All moved to follow

Well we're all moved in and im reconnected to the net now(after 4 days without-i was getting twitchy!) Still have stuff to unpack, but i suspect I will for a while. Move went smoothly, had lots of help (thanks guys!) and got a lot unpacked on saturday and have unpacked more since. Still have some things to do around here but its getting there. Will take pics once I clean up a bit (probably later tonight or tomorrow)

Well, Im going to be MIA for a while, until I can get the internet hooked up at the new place. We're officially moving tomorrow! Yay!! I cant believe how fast two months has gone by and how much we've gotten done! I'll attempt to continue taking pictures and then just update once I have the net back, but its going to busy trying to unpack and whatnot. Im nervous, excited, scared etc...Its bittersweet. While Im glad to be getting out of this teeny tiny house and not be renting anymore and actually have our own place, that we can pretty much do what we want to, I'll be sad at the same time because this is the house I had my babies in :( Lots of memories here....It'll be good to make new memories, and who knows, maybe one day another baby(but definately not anytime soon!) So thats it, last post from this house. Hope everyone has a good weekend :)

7 months old today!

My baby is 7 months old today!! Cant believe how fast the time has gone by! Hes still lazy as ever, wont roll over(even though he knows how-ive seen him do it a few times) still not sitting on his own. Hes more than content to lay on his back and play or jump in his jolly jumper! he weighs somewhere in teh ballpark of 19-20ish pounds, not sure how tall he is, havnt measured him lately.. The second picture-Ricky totally gives me that look too lol
Ricky got ready by himself to go outside this evening, in full out rain gear lol


So cool! I went out to turn the truck around this morning so I could load it up with stuff to move, and something out of the corner of my eye caught my attention. So I turned my head, and there was a whole bunch of wild turkeys walking through the field behind us. Ive never seen that many together like that before. It was so neat!!

Ricky got a haircut today. I had to watch Lisa's daughter this morning while she was at work so when she came to get her she brought her clippers and gave Ricky a haircut. He actually sat fairly still and didnt cry, which is good for him because normally he freaks. He wasnt too pleased however to have his picture taken!

No pictures/house update

I brought my camera with me to the house today, and I forgot to take pictures! The trim is almost completely done, just the kitchen really left to do. The joints have all been puttied, now just need sanding and touching up. It looks really awesome. I'm going to have to do some more caulking this week as well, there are a few places where theres a gap between the flooring and the baseboard, as well as around the doorframes and a few more windows. Also around the bathtub and along the top of some of the baseboard...I also still need to clean the house from top to bottom. I painted all of the interior doors today as well. Just have two coats on the one side of the entryway closet door to do and its done :)
So the plan for tomorrow is get up and be out of the house by 9-930ish, drop the kids at my mom and dads, get Rick to finish the trim, sand it all, and then clean the house. I'll do all of the caulking once the house is clean. Hopefully we get trim/sanding done early enough so that my mom can come out and help clean for a bit (much easier to get it all done with more than one person) If not no biggie.
I guess thats about it, were almost ready to move in! 6 more days!!!!

So this one is actually from yesterday, apparently I didnt miss it lol I just forgot that I had taken a picture. Poor little bugger is all constipated so he's been eating prunes for the last two days. Today is a better day, we've had some poop, and hes much more pleasant than he has been so it must be moving along in there.

This one is from this afternoon. Playing with his toys while his entertainment(Ricky) was napping!

Miss again, a look back through the last few years

From around April 15th 2008. Hard to believe Ricky was rolling over and sitting on his own and Charlie has yet to really do either at the same age...
April 15th 2009, talking on mommys mike phone lol
Playing in the mud! Funny that this year he'll only drive his trucks through puddles and throw rocks into them but doesnt want to play in them lol
