HELLO Daddy reading to the Princess' class.....each child in Hanna Beth's Pre-K class has a couple of opportunities in the year to have a parent, grandparents or someone special come and read to their class. I did it back in October and this past week her Daddy had the privilege. They are such a sweet and attentive group of little ones and I just love the way Hanna Beth is leaning over on her Daddy's arm. ~awe~
HELLO cold Tater with his snow boots on.......this is my "dog nephew." (my brother and SIL's dog) Tater is a Goldendoodle and he has no idea he is a dog. He is my favorite of all dogs except that he is rather large. But, he is so stinkin' sweet and so obedient. Don't you love his snow boots! They live in Iowa and shortly after they moved there 7 years ago they decided that Tater needed boots if he was going to play outside in the snow. He actually holds his foot up for them to put the boots on him. I had no idea they made boots for dogs. I'm thinking from the looks of this picture, made last Sunday, that he needs a face warmer as well. ~smile~
HELLO tilting foot rest....if you have a desktop computer then you need one of these. It is so dandy for keeping your feet comfortable and it tilts, which makes it all the more comfortable. I saw this while roaming through Sam's the other week and thought I'd give it a try. I will give it 5 *****'s for sure! I suppose it would also work well for folks that sit at a desk all day long.
HELLO 100 days of school....I'm not sure what all the hype is about 100 days of school, but I've seen it all over the internet and social media. Bridget sent me this picture of Clancy last week sporting his 100 days of school tee shirt. His kindergartner teacher had them make the shirts in class. They glued 100 pom poms all over a white tee shirt as their celebration. Clancy was quite proud of his and rightfully so.
HELLO house progress....nothing new to show you except the carpenters continuing to work and work. They finished up most of the trim work, and configured guest room closets this past week. The brick layer continues with his work. He's been laying brick for almost 3 months. Of course, he's dealt with some pretty bad weather during that time. Thankfully the weather didn't halt any of the other work and we've had heat in the house for a couple of months.
And, I've been doing a lot of looking at fabric samples and rugs which is a lot of fun but it ultimately requires a decision. I think the above samples are what our great room will be done in. We'll have very neutral Roman Shades over the windows. I spent a lot of time with our decorator last week narrowing down choices. She is a life saver for sure!
Wishing you a happy VALENTINE'S week and I'm betting that our little Andi Kate will have arrived by next Monday's HELLO's. ~big smile~
