Wintertime Projects

The winter is long.  The schoolwork is demanding.  There's hardly any time to update photos and this blog!  But once in a while, things actually get done! (especially when Mark does them;)
First winter project:  remodel Cy's room.  Mark and Cy took down his bed (he was too big for it), tore the barnboard off of the walls, textured the walls, painted, trimmed, and moved Ally's bed into Cy's room.
 It looks so much more spacious and clean now!

Great job, guys!

 The end of January is Mark's birthday....sorry I have no idea why this picture uploaded sideways.
 Happy Birthday to you, Dad/Mark!  Also to Mickey a few days later!  Terrible Two.  And how.
 Next winter project:  make a bed/shelf unit for Ally.  Ally designed it and Mark made it.  They both painted and moved things around in her room.  Isn't it fantastic?
 I can't believe almost a month has passed since Valentine's Day...we had a great one!  Mark and I spent the night before at dinner and a show with my mom, sisters, brother, and their spouses.  Then it was time for our annual fancy dinner.  Always a crowd favorite!  The kids are getting bigger around the table!

 March brings school, music, forensics projects.  Ally just had her subdistrict speaking contest and will be competing in the 4-minute at conference next weekend; in a few days she will be in the conference honors band.  Wynne just had fun dressing up for Dr. Seuss week (especially Red Carpet day, fancy dress!).  The twins just finished up basketball, and now Paige and Wynne are rehearsing for the school musical next month.  Meanwhile, Cy and the twins are putting the finishing touches on their National History Day projects.  Paige and Shae are doing an exhibit on Vince Lombardi for this year's theme "Leadership and Legacy".  Is that a Bears fan I see helping them????
Stay tuned for contest results!!The writer of this just spent about 8 hours organizing the schedule, judges forms, contacts, etc. ..................
Never a dull moment, especially as winter drones on and we are itching for spring!!!
We know it's coming :)

Blessed are those who have not seen Him and yet believe. --John 20:29
