Brr - It's cold

It snowed here- lots. So, we've been inside mostly. This past weekend we did see the new house- all the woodwork (trim, etc) is up. Looks nice. And the fireplace is stoned. And while that is nice- seems that it is missing two shelves we asked to have put up. Hopefully this is an after thought- and they will get put up later- but we haven't heard from the builder yet. We also picked out our granite. Plus, all the ceramic tile is in. Looks awesome. Noah and I played outside on Monday- and just like his mommy- he is NOT a fan of snow or cold. Can't say I blame him. I also got some more layouts done this weekend, watched some Olympics and did some shopping. We hit the outlets and picked up some cute things for the house.

Happy Belated Valentine's Day

We had a good weekend - I even scrapbooked a little. We also visited the house. They have almost all the doors hung, the moldings are going up, the coloumns in our bedroom are up and most of the vanities in the bathroom are in. The cabinets are all in the house (just not hung) and most of the windows are framed. It looks awesome and is really coming around. We had a low key Valentine's Day here. Noah got a new puppy (the battery-operated kind) and a Zhu Zhu Pet. Jim got a Guitar Hero that we've been playing. Jim and I had dinner last night at J.Alexzanders. On Friday Jim had sent me flowers, chocolates and a bear to work. Happy Valentine's Day

We made the news

Well the new house did anyway. Is it some kind of omen when this appears in the paper before you even move in?

Baby- It's Cold Outside

Our first big snow at home- so Noah and I tredged outside (after I got him dressed)- and played for about 15 minutes. He even made a snow angel (with a little help from mom!)

I need to keep up- Ann Arbor Hands On Museum and House Update

Wow- I've been bad- REALLY BAD at this. So, here is goes- last Saturday (1/30) - We took Noah to the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum as they had a Bob the Builder Exhibit and he's really liking him right now. So - we took DH's car to the dealer and with my mom and met the inlaws at the museum. He had a blast going in and out of things and going up the ramp in the preschool area. It was a good change of pace for him. We did learn that we need to get him in groups with other kids as he has a little issue sharing and when you say "No" to him. Sunday- that week- we went to the house to meet another basement guy out there. When we got there- the doors were left open and the garage was partially open. We told the sales girl and found out later in the week that someone had actually broken in and stole the cabinets that were in the garage- TOTALLY crazy!! The week flew by- Chi- Chi's twin did arrive in the mail and he also got a new hamster (the Zhu Zhu pet kind). He learned to tell you "it's dead" if the battery has died in one of his animal friends. If you don't fix it right away he tells you "dead, dead". This weekend was busy as we babysat my neices on Saturday and Noah got to play with them. On Sunday we did manage to get to the house- they had primed the whole house- looks totally different - and then watched the Super Bowl with my brothers last night. I promise to be better- time just gets away from you! The one picture above is the hallway last week and the bottom one is the same hallway this weekend - time flies
