More Miss Charlotte

Charlotte - Twin Falls, Idaho - 2013
I'm happy to report that Miss Charlotte is settling in quite nicely. She's warmed up to us quite a bit, has started playing, and got a little tag with her name and my info on it. Guess it's official, now! Friday, she goes in to be spayed; a necessary evil.

We just love her sooo much! I never, ever pictured myself owning a Chihuahua, but she definitely has stolen my heart.

This is Miss Charlotte. Charlotte has come to live with us. Charlotte is quite scared of us, but we love her already and are willing to be patient and quiet for her in order for her to get comfortable. Sweet Charlotte.

Arr Me Mateys!/Random Photos

Today, we were pirates! Arr!

The scallywags on their pirate ship with their treasure chest and bottle of rum.

Before turning pirate, Drew spreads out his "cuddle" and says, "I'm a sleepy spider."

 We got to go to Hop 2 It for a Homeschooler's Valentine's Day get-together. They got to bounce around for a couple hours and then passed out valentines to each other. I made the boys' mailbox, which is a valentine-eating monster. I'm not great with paper, but I was fairly proud of my box.

Finished Desk

Monday, February 11, 2013

Well, the desk is officially DONE and it is marvelous! I think Rob agrees. 

The pictures really don't do it justice!

Fully installed and ready to rock. Just have to wait for the polyurethane to fully cure before we actually start using it.

Shelves for the boys' school books and craft supplies.

 Space for the tower and baskets underneath for more storage.

 It's just so yummy! Good job on your first staining project, honey! I'm so spoiled. =)

Mister already has plenty more projects in mind. I think I could get used to this!

New Desk - Progress

Thursday, February 7, 2013

 Nine feet long, two work stations, a filing cabinet, and two storage spaces that will have shelves. It will replace our computer desk, printer table, and storage cabinets. Oh, and be totally awesome.

I'd like to note that my wonderful husband has built this from scratch. Minus the filing cabinet, of course. He is really starting to enjoy woodworking. Who knew?

Rob's future school spot. Please excuse the disaster in the background. Someday I'll have my dining room back.

Pretty sure he's excited about it. =)

The future stain color. Yummy.

I just can't wait for this to be finished!

The (tired) carpenter. I'm so proud of you and your new hobby, love. =)

"Giddyup, Brother!"

Working With Daddy

I snuck out to the shed while my two big boys were working hard on sanding parts of our new desk. We're roughly going off this desk we came across on Pinterest. Can't wait!

Helps to have a cute assistant.

I love the grain on this! Destined to be the top of the desk.

Working together.
