Ear to ear…

September 8, 2008

That’s how big my smile was this weekend – and many times at that!  Here’s a rundown of the smile-making events….

  • The tile in the kitchen and laundry room is down!  We still have to grout and seal, but by Wednesday evening I should have the cabinets (currently in the soon-to-be dining room), kitchen sink (currently in the back yard), and washer/dryer (currently in the back yard) back in their proper place.  SO excited to be done with the plywood floors!  Brandon is such a champ, basically doing this all by himself!
  • Listening to Nolan crack himself up in the mornings while letting mommy and daddy get a bit more rest.  He wakes up in a very good mood and is quite content talking to his mobile or the baby in the mirror for a good 15 minutes before deciding he needs to be out of the crib.
  • Realizing that we are getting very close to being done with the interior house renovations.  So close, I can almost taste it!
  • Watching Nolan be mesmerized by football.  Seriously, the kid loves it and cannot be distracted while watching it – the look he gives you when you try to distract him is hilarious.  And this concentration is not present when watching anything else – just football.  As much as it makes me giggle, I’m also a tad worried about what the future will hold for this football fan – the house is already consumed with the football season, and that’s just with Brandon!
  • Deciding on what cabinets to get for the kitchen.  I can’t wait to have a nice kitchen.  Oh, the little things that thrill me.
  • Watching a friend who plays the QB position warm up to possibly kick the extra point.  Something about it just made me chuckle.  Just an out-of-the-ordinary type of situation.  I thought, “bet he’s glad he played soccer as a young lad.”
  • Nolan’s new found love of animal noises – he especially loves the dog and chicken sounds.  The laughs he was giving were huge and contageous.  Lucky kid, he actually has a large number of the animals in his back yard!  Can’t wait until he can go chase play with them!

Pictures to follow soon.

    Hey All,
    Sorry ya’ll can make Vegas. I’ll take notes for gotta do agains. I’m concerned about this football stuff. All I ask is for equal NASCAR or any other motorsport time. Let the lad keep his options open.
    God, guns, guts, girls, and gasoline made and keep our county strong. By the way, ain’t my Governor/next VP hot? Go Sarah!
    Love, Dad
