This is a shot from the back of the house, looking into the backyard.

Linda and I ended up at different Home Depots today and did most of this on the phone, but I think I found the fans for the boys' room, and maybe the living room, but I didn't see many choices for what we are looking for (color wise) for the living room. So we'll have to see. When we get them I will post pictures!

This is a wall sconce. We are going to have one on each side of the large, tall window in our living room area. Should be pretty! It reminds me of some gorgeous hurricane candle holders Mom has!!!
This is the "socket" for light switches! Hee!
This mirror will be in the boys bathroom. They have one sink; so there will be one. It reminds me of the mirrors we have in our Master Bath now. They have "beading" on the wood, and the base of the wall sconces do as well, as does the towel bars we have chosen and the mirrors for the Master Bath look like they hang from "beaded" chains. So it should all tie in nicely!

Here they are coming around the "S" turn. There are 4 karts out there at this time, Justin was 4th out of 5th.
Justin's not-so-great luck continued into the first heat, when he and 2 others "tussled" in turns 1 and 2 and his nose cone came off (his front bumper). That is an automatic DQ and he has to leave the track. Luckily the first heat doesn't count. It's the MAIN heat that is a "Winner Takes All".
Jacob is actually at the fence line here, while we are watching Justin lose his nose cone. It was his little nap (the only nap) he got yesterday, but he sure had a good time! He loves to watch the karts go around in front of him. I think it's the combination of the noise, color, and speed!
This is the winning race. Justin started last due to being DQ'd from the first race due to his nose cone coming off. (Dad even drilled holes in it this time and zip tied it so it wouldn't come off! LOL). He started 5th, ended up passing his way up to 3rd pretty quick. The top two racers, Luis and Trevor ended up "getting into it" in turns 1 and 2 and spun each other out. Justin was right behind them and just squeezed on through the middle of them both! Trevor and Alexander got themselves straightened out and back on track, and put up a good fight, but Justin never let go of his lead! In fact, he had some time to slow down and chill, but of course he didn't take it! He raced and raced till the end! Trevor and Alexander ended up getting into it again, spraying rock all over the track, so Justin did slow down for that....LOL
Here is the winner, rolling into the scales after his win! This was a nail biting moment for Dad. Did he gauge the gas good enough???? The class has to come in at a minimum weight of 235 (driver and kart) and of course you don't want to go much over; the lighter the better. Justin came in at 236!!!
