I Think We Have Colors.....Update

I think this combination is the winner. The brown on the long boards in the middle will be the body of the house. The Sage color at the top will be the "main" trim, around the house and windows. I think I got a better picture here that really shows the true colors. I am going to do Jacob's room in a sage or soft olive as well; so it should really tie in to the house nicely! We may do some browns and olives and sages on different walls in the house, and probably do one of those colors in Justin's room as well!

A Shower with a View...

This is the view from the Master Bathroom shower window! Hee! I love the idea of having a window in the shower, to get all that steam out on a hot day, but it's also nice to have a view! I have to stand on tip toe to see out, but it's worth it! And the glass is one of those "bumpy" type (like speed bumps from top to bottom) so it's blurry if you try to see in! Not that I expect any peeping Toms.......

We Have a Shingled Roof!!! Woo hoo!

Here are some pictures of the roofers working on our roof! They were about a half a day behind due to the high winds we had the day they began. They couldn't work on it for more than half a day that first day!

Here is a shot of the back of the house, while Jacob and I were on our daily morning walk!

These were taken today. Yippee, the roof is done! John and Bob were working on the stairs for the back deck; there will be one on each side of the back deck.

I think I know what I am going to be for Halloween...

This isn't even the best picture! He sticks his tongue out so far, he really, really looks like.....Gene Simmons from KISS!!! I was joking around one day that I thought it would be funny to dress him up like Gene for Halloween! His tongue, when he really sticks it out (which is super often), goes down to his clothes! He LOVES to stick his tongue out. John is worried he is going to sunburn it! Hee! One day I noticed a speck of lint on his tongue, from his blanket, and I couldn't get it off because his tongue was dry from sticking out!!!! So if anyone knows where to get a baby sized KISS outfit...let me know!!!!

Watch Out Third Grade!!!! Here I Come!!!

Today is Justin's first day of the 3rd grade! He has two new teachers this year, Mrs. Ward and Mrs. Avery. I was able to meet Mrs. Ward today, and only saw Mrs. Avery, but they both looked very nice and excited to start a new school year! Justin did notice he had a few friends in his class, so he was excited! Unfortunately one of his best friends, Tyson, wasn't in his class, but we hope to have him over soon so the boys can spend some time together. Justin, Jacob and I walked to school, and we are planning on walking to pick him up. We had a fun time finding his classroom and seeing old teachers etc. I look forward to hearing all about his first day!

The Roof is on it's Way!!!

Today the roofing material arrived!!! It should take a day or two for the roof to be done. The black that you see on the "point" of the roof is what seals it, so if it rains we shouldn't leak!! The shingles are what are in the bags. I'm so excited!! We've ordered our cabinets & things are really starting to take shape!

Here is a shot from the back of the house.

Another Victory!!!

Justin won another race this weekend!!! It sure was close. Trevor, who came in second, sure gives Justin a run for his money. They both are stiff competition for each other. There are two races left in the season and if Justin can win the next one he will be a lock for winning the championship. He's getting closer to getting that hat, jacket and glass trophy at the annual banquet in January!!!
