The Kids & the Cats

The kids love their cats and they love spending time with them.

New Ruler

I always wanted one of these, and now Jack is almost taller than it, but that's ok.  Still fun!

What's happening at our place today...

We are pretty proud of both of the kids' reading, and Ava just asked Jack if she could read his Charlie and the Chocolate Factory chapter book.  Not sure if she will really read all of it, but I'm happy she is interested in it.  

Harvesting beans today!  Our farmer friend is pretty excited about harvesting I think.
Shadow is our cat who is more like a dog.  He likes to follow us around and loves attention.  He walks all the way down our driveway (about a quarter of a mile) and back with us.

Cute Kitties

The Dining Room

The dining room has surprised me by becoming one of my favorite rooms so far. My stuff and the new things we've added have come together nicely! I love the chairs, the light fixture that started it all, and the bar we made from a post we found in the chicken coop. It used to be part of the back of the house.  So we cut it down and made a bar.  I love that it was part of the house's past.  

More updates

 I am proud of the Welcome sign. I saw one something like this for $45, but it was much smaller. I knew I wanted a bigger one, so I looked online and found a 6 footer for $150+$30 shipping. And it didn't have the cute MN outline for the "O". So I thought maybe we could make one.  I found this board in the garage from the last house and bought letters at Walmart and painted them. The kids helped too.  And "happened" to find this MN cutout at a store here with a half price coupon! So I paid around $20 for the whole thing and it's huge! Over 6 feet!  It should go outside or on the porch but so far it's hanging ouy inside.  I especially love it since we now live in Welcome, Mn! So welcome to Welcome!  You're welcome! Anytime!
 We couldn't be happier with our new bed!  I've always wanted an upholstered headboard, and it's king sized! We can spread out!
